To the ordinary eye, this may look like any old pancake.
But take a closer (or read this post), and you’ll soon learn that this is not just an ordinary pancake. Instead, itz a coconut flour pancake that is delicious, nutritious, and wildly easy to make!
Coconut Flour Pancake
~makes 1 large pancake
- 1/4 cup each coconut flour, milk, egg whites
- a few drops vanilla NuNaturals
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Combine all ingredients.
- Cook over medium-low heat, being careful not to burn.
- Flip pancake to cook the back side.
- Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
I added a little maca powder and wheat germ to mine, too, but you don’t have to. I like to bulk up my pancakes, oatmeal, and smoothies by sneaking in other ingredients. Chia seeds and flax seeds often make an appearance, as well.
What’s different about these coconut flour pancakes is that they are thicker and more moist than the traditional pancake. They’re not light and fluffy; no, no, they are dense and filling and wonderful. I find that fresh strawberries, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a drizzle of maple syrup are my favorite toppings, though a smear of coconut oil adds a whole other level of richness! Just look at the beauty:
