Coconut Flour Pancake

Your breakfast just got wayyyy easyyyy.

Paleo Pancake-6

Since beginning my clinical rotation in January, my schedule has changed quite a bit.

I went from having a good amount of free time (hello, Today Show watching while slowly enjoying breakfast and a mug of tea/coffee) to having way less free time.  Instead of enjoying my tea latte (just chai tea + frothed milk) in a relaxed state, I pretty much always rush out the door in the morning with my Califia Farms tumbler filled with my chai tea latte and enjoy it while listening to trashy radio talk shows on the way to the hospital.

I know one morning I’m going to spill all the tea all over my pants and I’m going to have to go all the way home and change clothes and be totally late for “work”…but that hasn’t happened yet.  So for these rushed mornings, I’ve found it works best for me to make my breakfast the night before.  This pancake has been my go-to.  It’s inspired by this brilliant pancake from Anne!  It’s quick and easy and helps me GET OUT THE DOOR.

On to the pancake.  If you don’t want it to taste like a sponge…you must be careful with the amount of coconut flour you add.  It’s a slippery slope so don’t go crazy.  No more than 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon…you got me? 

You add too much coconut flour and you’ve got a sponge for breakfast and nobodies got time for that.

You want that forkful in your life.

Simple Coconut Flour Pancake

Yield: 1 pancake

Prep Time: 5

Cook Time: 5

Total Time: 10


1 large ripe banana, well-mashed

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

optional: small handful berries and/or nut butter


  1. In a bowl, whisk together mashed banana, eggs, coconut flour and cinnamon. 
  2. Whisk some more, you don't want pieces of egg in your pancake.
  3. Grease a small skillet (6-inch diameter) with a small amount of coconut oil/butter.  Heat over medium heat.
  4. Pour in pancake batter (add any add-ins you desire...berries, nuts, etc.) and allow to cook untouched for 5 minutes.
  5. Use a spatula to loosen the edges of the pancake from the pan.  Flip pancake to the other side and cook for an additional minute or two.
  6. Eat immediately or store in the fridge overnight and eat cold (or hot) in the morning.

If the pancake comes out with a spongy texture, use less coconut flour next time!  It shouldn't be spongy!

  1. i have never cooked with coconut flour – im a little scared.

    i hear you about tummy problems in the morning, any other suggestions? 

  2. Love watching the today show and eating breakfast like an old woman.. almost a much as I have been loving all these easy breakfast recipes. I know they will come in handy when I don’t have the time to lounge around (seeing as I get an internship)

  3. Looks delicious..I’ve been wanting to find a coconut flour recipe and this one is so simple…I’ll let you know how it turns out…Definitely adding my blackberries too! :)

    • Hey Katie! Coconut flour is the weirdest to bake with. I haven’t had too much luck, everything just comes out SO DRY. But in pancakes it seems to work! Let me know what you think:)

  4. Yum! These are so easy and delicious!

  5. Nice! I’ve got a bag of coconut flour kicking around that I’ve been trying to figure out something to do with, so I’ll totally have to give this a try. And omg, that peanut butter coconut spread? I’m traveling to NYC next month so I’m putting that on my list of things to buy and bring back to Sweden! Where can I find it?

  6. Coconut flour can be so tricky, but it looks like you mastered it in these pancakes!

  7. I make these pancakes all the time too! Just two eggs and a banana and any toppings I have on hand. Perfect for Fat Tuesday!!

  8. I tend to mix coconut flour with a dash of buckwheat to balance out the dryness.. But I am so trying this tomorrow…delish.

  21. Good tips. I am a believer that there is no ‘one size fits all’ method. People need to figure out what works for them and what will be sustainable. I always looked at it as I was making a healthy lifestyle changes and not on a ‘diet’. I feel that is what has allowed me to be successful in my weight loss and keeping it off.
