Gluten Free Coconut Flour Pancakes Recipe
photo by recipe author

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

1. Mix all dry ingredients, except for baking soda, together in a medium size bowl. Mix wet ingredients, except for vinegar, and add to dry ingredients. Let sit for a few minutes.

2. After batter has hydrated, add just enough extra liquid to make a batter that's too thick to spread by itself. Add in baking soda and vinegar and mix just until incorporated.

3. Using an ice cream scoop, plop batter onto a greased or oiled skillet, spread out batter, and cook for a few minutes per side (until browned on both sides of pancake).

4. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

This looks good, but does the taste of apple cider vinegar come through? Otherwise, this looks really delicious.

Beth, I haven't made these yet but doubt it would. It's a tiny amount in order to work with the baking soda as a rising agent. You can make sure to pour the vinegar right on the baking soda making a nice little fizz. I use this often as a rising agent and have never tasted the vinegar in the final product. Will try these soon myself.

I agree with Beth, looks great, but anytime I add Apple Cider Vinegar to anything, that's all I taste. Couldn't you just skip it?

I think I might even add some coconut flakes to this as well, Going to try it tomorrow morning.

Can I use this to make waffles?

Just made them and the kids gobbled them up. My daughter is allergic to a multitude of foods but this recipe was good. A lot of my gluten-free bread recipes call for a half teaspoon of vinegar and you don't taste it.

Why are there so many eggs in the recipe???? That's the only reason I hesitate to make it. 3/4 of a dozen eggs is a bit much with only 1 cup of flour...
# Posted By jackie | 12/31/12 11:16 PM
Because coconut flour is so dense and you use (compared to gluten flours) much less of it, you need the eggs to provide the body and make it look like a normal gluten product. That's what I keep reading - and in this case they make the pancakes have a nice high protein content as well, so they are doubly good for you.

Coconut flour needs a LOT of moisture, thus the many eggs!
# Posted By Melindaq | 1/3/13 12:37 PM
Will this recipe work with 4 whole eggs and 4 egg whites? Is it just the moisture from the egg, or do you need that much fat from the yolk?
# Posted By April | 1/7/13 3:01 PM
Im with Jackie, I understand needing the eggs but isn't it unhealthy using that many?
# Posted By laura | 3/18/13 8:26 PM
When making the pancakes or any cake, etc with coconut flour, you're not eating all those eggs at once. Consider a serving similar to 1-2 eggs. You have to use a lot of eggs with coconut flour, it is so dense you'd end up choking on it if you didn't bc it would be so dry. And adding a liquid like coconut milk cannot be used solely. You can use a combo, but you will always need a lot of eggs, yolk and all. I can tell you as living proof, I have been eating this way for about 5 years and I get my blood work checked twice a year if that helps any, my cholesterol and triglycerides were normal, hdl and ldl were all normal. HTH any

Try not to believe everything your government tells you is good/bad for you. I know its counterintuitive to the philosophies of the FDA, AMA, AHA and all those great organizations that would love to keep you sick and dependent, but EAT ALL THE EGGS YOU WANT! well pastured eggs, factory eggs really aren't good for you. How bout we increase the coconut flour and add an even dozen eggs?!

Can these be frozen?
# Posted By Linda H | 5/16/13 2:16 PM
Certified organic eggs r good for u..

I just made these and they were good. I cut the recipe in half and it was more than enough for 2 people. I used solid sugar instead of honey (I hate to measure honey), and raw cow's milk. I mixed it up in my Tupperware measuring bowl with a handle and the batter was pourable, like regular pancakes. I used a ceramic nonstick skillet that was oiled with expeller pressed coconut oil. Flipping the first few was a little tricky but I had no disasters. Mine were yellow because of my eggs. I would make these again. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Melissa.

These are absolutely delicious!
My family and friend loved them,
Especially after adding blueberries.
I am making extra to pop in the freezer
for a quick morning breakfast.
I found them kinda tricky to flip.
So I recommend a size slightly on the
smaller side.
I was glad for all the eggs,
protein and pancake all in one.
Perfect breakfast!
Thanks for the great recipe.

I've made these without the apple cider vinegar, and added flax seed and pumpkin. SOOO GOOD! I have also used a half coconut-half quinoa recipe and works just as well.
# Posted By Donna | 7/30/13 12:18 PM
I made these, and they came out okay. They're very...eggy.
# Posted By Caryn | 11/21/13 3:56 PM
every time I find a recipe that looks good it has something in it I can't have. I cannot have dairy so this one is out too. Anything else to substitute for the milk?
# Posted By Gretchen | 12/13/13 1:30 PM
To Gretchen, I've read that people allergic to cows milk can Fri k goats milk. Even people that are lactose I tolerant can Fri k goats milk. But, store bought has a nasty taste (from what I've read and fresh farm goats milk is delicious. Try googling "Can people that are allergic to cows milk Fri mg goats milk"... It has a world of info and a log with many great comments.

Would coconut milk work as a replacement for the cow's milk?
# Posted By Elaine W | 12/19/13 3:01 PM
To Gretchen:Substitute Rice milk! I use it for all sorts of recipies.
# Posted By helen | 12/20/13 6:32 AM
Gretchen, can you have almond milk? Soy milk? Goats milk? There are lots of milks, and they substitute beautifully. Good luck.
