I originally developed these pancakes to accommodate a gluten-free, sugar-free diet. They are as versatile as traditional pancakes and can be dressed up or down as the meal requires. My favorite is to serve them with a pineapple-coconut-macadamia nut relish, but they're just as good served traditionally with butter and syrup (agave nectar is a great syrup). Maybe add a dollop of whipped cream on each stack.

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk coconut flour, rice flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Mix buttermilk, egg yolks, butter, and almond extract together in a separate bowl.

  • Heat griddle to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) or a skillet over medium-high heat; lightly grease with macadamia nut oil.

  • Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until medium peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the tip of the peak formed by the egg whites should curl over slightly.

  • Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture; fold in egg whites, 1/3 at a time, until batter is just mixed and thick.

  • Ladle batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

For starters the proportions are waaay off. I ended up adding an extra cup of milk and it still wouldn't spread at all... so I'm standing there trying to spread out the pancake playdough and then when I try to flip it of course it falls apart. The basic idea of milk butter eggs coconut flour and rice flour might still work but this one didn't work for me. Read More
