  1. Whisk coconut flour, erythritol, oat fiber, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt together in a bowl, breaking up any lumps in the coconut flour.
  2. Preheat a griddle or pan over medium-low heat and lightly oil the surface.
  3. Mix eggs, butter, water, cream, vinegar, and vanilla extract into the bowl with the coconut flour mixture. Stir well to combine; batter will be thicker than regular pancake batter.
  4. Scoop 1/4 cup batter at a time onto the preheated griddle, leaving space between each pancake and smoothing the tops slightly. Cook until bubbles form, edges begin to dry, and the bottom is browned, 2 to 5 minutes. Flip pancakes carefully using a thin spatula; continue cooking until firm and browned on the second side, about 1 minute more.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you can't get oat fiber, you can try substituting psyllium husk powder. The texture won't be quite the same, but the recipe will work.
  • You can use the same amount of glucomannan in place of xanthan gum.
  • If batter gets too thick to scoop, add 1 tablespoon of water and whisk again.
  • Get the pans out before you begin. These pancakes are cooked on a lower heat to keep them from burning, so they'll take longer than regular pancakes. You'll get 3 pancakes per 12" round pan, and 4 pancakes in a square pan. If you have the pans and the stove space, it will go quicker using 2 pans at one time.

Only a couple changes: had no oat fiber (whatever that is) so I used flax meal) and used coconut cream instead of heavy cream (dairy intolerant). They turned out great, just like Auntrocky said...
