Coconut Pancakes - Gluten Free

For a tasty alternative to gluten-laden pancakes, try making Coconut Flour Pancakes. One notable difference with gluten-free coconut flour is the lack of binding. There is nothing to hold the pancakes together, that's where the eggs come in, they act as a binder. But, you don't want your pancakes to look or taste like an omelet so be sure to use coconut milk and vanilla extract. (coconut or almond extract would be nice too).


  • 4 eggs
  • 3 Tblsp. coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 Tblsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla 
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • coconut oil or butter for frying
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, oil, milk, honey and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Add coconut flour and baking powder and mix to combine. For a thicker batter add more flour a little at a time until it's the consistency you want.
Melt coconut oil (or butter) in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Scoop a scant ¼ cup batter into skillet per pancake. Cook on one side for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is golden. Then flip and cook on the other side until golden, about 3 minutes.
Serve hot with powdered sugar or syrup and butter.



  1. In the old Tropicana Hotel & Casino, there used to be a place where we could get Coconut pancakes and coconut syrup. Such a great breakfast that was. So sad to see such wonderful things go away. Now with this recipe, I can at least have the pancakes...maybe I'll research coconut syrup. Thanks Candy, for your wonderful recipes.

    1. Thanks Nancy, I'm glad you like my recipes. I'll look for coconut syrup too!

  2. These sound yummy and healthy.
