Coconut Flour Pancakes

First, let me give credit where credit is due.  I made these amazing pancakes from a recipe I found on a blog.  Well-Girl posted this amazing recipe and it can be found here: Coconut Flour Pancakes.

Like I have said in other posts, I am really trying to change the way I eat and become a healthier version of myself.  I love the things that are bad for us like chips and cookies and beer!  I live on just Italian white bread and butter, no joke.  But seriously, I would weight a million pounds if I did that.  Instead, I am trying to reintroduce my favorites but as healthier versions!  Enter: Coconut Flour Pancakes!

The recipe needs to be followed to the T because honestly, you will end up with pancake mash.  In all fairness though, I tried making these pancakes a DIFFERENT way the first time.  I used all egg whites and it was an entirely different recipe than this one.  This recipe uses 1 whole egg and you definitely need a binding agent.

After lumpy pancake porridge is poured into skillet, you get lumpy pancake mash.

Here is the recipe straight from Well-Girl’s blog (things I modified are in parenthesis):

Ingredients

  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (I used sweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 3 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 stevia packets (I used store brand sweetener which has the same ingredients as Splenda)

Directions

  • Beat eggs for about a minute and then stir in almond milk and vanilla extract.
  • In a second bowl combine coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and stevia.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until incorporated. (I added the dry ingredients to the wet…)
  • Preheat a griddle to medium-high heat and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Use a 1/3 measuring cup and pour batter in pan for each pancake. Pancakes should be about 3″-4″ in diameter.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes until browned before flipping.  They take slightly longer to cook than traditional pancakes.

These were delicious and I can’t wait to try variations.  I had a friend who added chocolate protein powder to hers and said they ended up good and super delicious!
