FINALLY! I'm so thrilled to share this recipe with you because it is absolute fluffy delicious perfection and it's gluten free too!
This is a big deal because I've been a pancake monster for as long as I can remember but I've had such love/hate relationship with coconut flour.
I remember the first time I ever created something with coconut flour. It was a disaster. I made muffins and they turned out harder than my kitchen counter top -- haha! And I absolutely REFUSE to buy the crappy pre-made mixes at the health food store.
These pancakes are light and fluffy. They will rock your gluten-free world!
You will notice there is no sugar added either. It's really not necessary once you add the toppings: bananas and raw coconut butter. You can also add chocolate chips if you like!
The joyous part of this recipe is what's actually in these pancakes. The coconut flour is full of good fats and a whopping 60% fibre. In fact, coconut flour contains the highest amount of fibre, more than even wheat flour which is 27% fibre. The eggs are a wonderful source of protein so your blood sugar will not jump on a rollercoaster with Aunt Jemima.
In fact, you will be as balanced as the Dalai Lama and your belly will stay full for hours as these p-cakes are VERY fulfilling.
Please note, if this is your first time making pancakes from scratch, this is not an entry-level recipe to gluten-free cooking. These take a little patience, but I promise you, they are SO worth it! (see my joyous tips below)
Joyous Tips To Pancake Perfection
I incorporate many gluten-free recipes into my life because I feel my best when I'm not being weighed down by wheat. This was a great way to start the day, anti-bloat and now I have extras I can pop in the toaster for tomorrow!
*For all you coconut product virgins :) There is a significant difference between the "coconut butter" and the oil. The butter is the coco flesh plus the oil. The actual butter is incredibly sweet and melts in your mouth. It contains vitamins, minerals and protein -- it's truly unadulterated. You must add the butter to your kitchen pantry! I have included the link of the brand I like and schlop on top of pancakes. However, use the coconut oil for a non-stick surface when cooking anything as it's very heat stable. It's LOADED with health benefits!
