I love breakfast. But when you're going gluten-free, wheat-free, or paleo, there aren't a lot of options. This recipe rocks when you need pancakes to save you from a blah breakfast morning. Yes, you can need pancakes. Great with syrup or fruit sauce. Let them cool and spread with cashew butter, sunflower butter, or even preserves for tea!

  • Beat egg yolks and butter together in a bowl until smooth; add coconut milk and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until batter is evenly combined.

  • Beat egg whites in a bowl until foamy, about 2 minutes; gently fold into batter.

  • Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls into the skillet 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.

Cook's Note:

Ghee can be used in place of butter.

After searching for a low carb pancake I found this recipe. The only change I made was using 1/2 teaspoon baking soda rather than full teaspoon. These were a bit dry but overall I was very pleased with the taste and texture. You can really taste the coconut which is a good thing for me. I topped with sugar free syrup. These really satisfied my pancake craving. I will definitely be making these again. Read More

This pancakes were so completely awful. I took one bite and threw them out. You could taste the baking soda and they tasted very eggy. Not good at all. Don t waste your ingredients on this recipe. Read More

I did not care for the strong taste of baking soda. Not sure if it can be reduced and still have the right consistently Read More

I've experimented with a few coconut pancake recipes and found this one to be easy to make and tasty! If I made again I wouldn't add salt because my butter was salted... Something I failed to think about ahead of time. Read More

We made this recipe once and We loved it well some of us. Yes I tasted the baking soda some now some of you might think I'm alittle odd but the truth is I just like that flavor. But now that we are making it again I'm going to add a little less baking soda see if it still turns out good. I'm thinking if the first few don't turn out well we can easily add more. I'm doing a quarter teaspoon less per batch. But we liked it so well that I'm making it 4 times the recipe this time. I'm so glad to find some recipes that have a good flavor that I don't have to keep trying and failing all the time. Thanks for sharing! I've tried so many different things on my own when things didn't taste really good at all and I ate it anyway as I could not afford to buy expensive ingredients and throw it out. Read More

The baking soda is overpowering but they're nice and fluffy so I will try it again with half the amount b. soda as suggested by another reviewer. Read More

these cooked well but they tasted more coconutty than i prefer in a pancake and since I'm not on a paleo diet i prefer the regular gluten free pancake mixes but it was fun trying a new one. Read More
