Coconut pancakes

No comments

I can’t believe it’s almost been two weeks since I ended my whole 30 journey. Even though I had a great experience, I knew exactly what non-whole 30 meal I was going to enjoy first. If you really know me, you know that I’m a lover of pancakes. Not French toast. Pancakes. Seriously though, how can you go wrong with buttered hot cakes with syrup and fruit?! I could go on about why pancakes trump French toast any day but I’ll save that for another post.

Anyways, I thought it would be a good idea to ease my way back into eating foods I avoided, so I decided to look up Paleo pancakes and realized that the majority of them used coconut flour. I came across a few variations of recipes and put my own twist on this one here.

Before making these I was a little nervous because I’ve never made pancakes from scratch but seeing how quick and easy it was I’m going to be making a lot more homemade cakes!

P.S. If you’re a fan of coconut you’re going to love these!

Ingredients (makes about 6 cakes)

 4 eggs

¼ cup of coconut milk

3 tbsp. of melted coconut oil

¼ cup of coconut flour

¼ tsp. of baking powder

¼ tsp. of sea salt

1 tsp. of vanilla extract

Fresh strawberries, blueberries, and coconut flakes for topping


1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until completely blended without lumps

2. Use ghee or olive oil to grease your skillet

3. Pour the batter on the skillet into small circles (about 3-4 inches)

4. Let the cakes cook until you see little air bubbles then flip to the other side

5. Top with fresh fruit, coconut flakes, peanut butter, and honey!
