This Gluten Free Coconut pancake is not something I make too often. Although most of the focus is low carb Meditteranean cuisine, this fusion is a lot more American. I admit it, I’m not the biggest fan of pancakes but these are so good…
I love the taste of the coconut flour and I can eat these pancakes all day with some butter on top. For the kids, I’m adding a little bit of maple syrup on top and they love it (and so am I)
How to make gluten free coconut pancakes
I feel like I always say it, and the truth is, that I try to stick to simple recipes and this one is no different. Making these pancakes takes 5-10 min of preparation and another 10 min cooking on a skillet. All you need to do is whisk together all the wet ingredients: butter, eggs, sour cream or heavy cream and vanilla extract. In a different bowl stir together all the remaining dry ingredients and then add them into the wet ingredients bowl stir everything together. The batter should be thick but if it’s too thick you can add a little bit of water.
To make the pancakes just heat up a skillet on low heat with coconut oil, grass-fed ghee will work too. one pancake is about 3 TBSP of batter. Simply pour it into the skillet and make a nice round thin shape. Give it a few minutes to cook, don’t turn them too early so they won’t break. it takes about 3-4 min you’ll know it’s time when the side will look a little dry. Flip it carefully but quickly and cook till ready. pay attention not to burn them.
What’s the difference when using coconut flour compared to regular flour
Coconut flour can absorb a lot more liquids than normal flour. That’s why when I’m using coconut flour I’m adding more eggs and liquid. To make my pancakes fluffy and tasty I used sour cream (heavy cream will work well too) as it keeps the batter thicker.
