If you are a vegan, this fluffy coconut pancake recipe might be a little tricky as you will have to exclude the eggs. But eggs play a role in cakes which would be missing.

Eggs provide a structure, bind the ingredients together to give the batter some sort of stability.

You can try it and see how it unfolds (no pun intended).

How To Make Coconut Flour Pancakes?

My structure for making cakes and cookies has changed. I like to mix dry ingredients together in one bowl and wet ingredients in another before bringing the 2 together to make the final batter.

>> So for the dry ingredients, put the coconut flour in a mixing bowl.

>> Add the baking soda, cinnamon and a pinch of salt to the coconut flour. Mix all together.

In another bowl, get the wet ingredients together.

>> In this bowl, break the eggs in, add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, vanilla extract, the honey and the milk. Whisk together. I prefer to use plant-based milk like Hemp milk, Coconut milk, Almond milk. If you don’t like plant-based milk, you can use a regular cow’s milk.

After whisking together thoroughly, pour the dry ingredient mixture in the 1st bowl into the 2nd bowl with the wet ingredients.

> Now mix all the ingredients together thoroughly to form a nice batter.


>> Place your pan on the cooker. Add a small amount of coconut oil to moisten the pan and heat up the oil.

>> Scoop in the the coconut batter in amounts that suit the size of coconut flour pancakes that you desire.

>> Flip the coconut flour pancakes when one side browns up.

That’s it. Your coconut flour pancakes are ready.

Serve with a nice cup of tea.

These pancakes are delicious as they are. Be careful what you drape the coconut flour pancakes with when you serve them. No need to make them unhealthy by draping them high fructose syrup, maple syrup or more honey. Not necessary.

Butter on top may be fine. Even better is plant-based butter, like almond butter. Low carb cheese is another option that will complement these pancakes.

I personally prefer to drape mine with low fat natural yogurt. Wierd, I know but it is healthy and it works.

My blood sugar level 1 hour after having these coconut flour pancakes was 4.7 mmol/l (84.6 mg/dl) even with a cup of tea and natural yogurt. Really Great!
