The best coconut flour pancakes.

Hey, you guys.

I bring you coconut flour pancakes. I will now say that I think coconut flour is a fun ingredient. I do not think it is healthier or more satisfying than white flour, I just think it is a fun ingredient. If you have a fear of white flour or carbs in general, it may be worthwhile to make a list of your “bad” foods and think “am I in control of the way I am eating?” “Or is the way I am eating controlling me?”

There is nothing wrong with fluffy, all-purpose flour pancakes stuffed with chocolate chips.  If the idea of eating those makes you lose your shit, it may be time to reflect on your eating style and reflect on if it is ruining your life.  <End PSA that I feel compelled to say every time I use a grain-free flour.>

Moving on.

I’m typing this post up from my bed.  I hear it’s bad to have your computer/phone in bed at night for sleep and a whole host of other reasons, but tonight when I got home from work, instead of going on a relaxing walk and then blogging, I went to eat pizza with friends.  It was 100% the right choice.  And now I’m laying here and Maggie has her head laying on my left arm and I would like to give my weekly reminder that EVERYONE needs a dog.  She is such a wonderful part of my day.

I am still working on getting more sleep.  That is one self-care practice I am not good at.

But that little tidbit really has nothing to do with this recipe.

The recipe.  Holy cannolis this recipe is so easy.  I use a latte style mug to whip up this batter.  I mean, like, you don’t even have to dirty a bowl to make these pancakes.  You only have to dirty ONE mug and a skillet of some sort.  Your life just got easy!

So my main issue with coconut flour pancakes is they are hella dry.  With the addition of brown sugar and milk, these pancakes are not hella dry.  Which, ya know, is fabulous if you want to enjoy your pancakes.

I usually eat these with fruit and a latte.  Alone, these pancakes aren’t quite enough to fill me up.  You figure out what works best for your body.  ENJOY.

Yield: (makes 4, small 3" pancakes; serves 1, BUT perhaps your body needs more food in the morning, you are allowed to nourish your body with what feels best to it)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes


2 eggs
2 tablespoons coconut flour, packed
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
pinch baking powder
tiny pinch salt
tiny pinch cinnamon
2-3 tablespoons milk

epic toppings/sides
a latte


In a mug, melt coconut oil.  Vigorously whisk in coconut flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Add in 2 eggs and whisk until most of the lumps are gone.  Add milk in 1 tablespoon at a time until a pancake consistency is reached.  If you add too much milk, the pancakes will come out crepe thin, which isn't necessarily a bad thing! They are still delicious!

Pour batter onto a greased, hot skillet.  I cooked mine over medium heat.
