Have I ever told you how much I LOVE recipe creation day in the Fit Foodie Kitchen? Now that I have Linley on Team Fit Foodie, recipe creation day is the best. We turn on the jams and get right to work. I thought these coconut flour pancakes were going to be hard to get right, but I only had to make them 3 times until I got the perfect ratio of ingredients!
You know what that means…3 whole batches of pancakes all for me. MWAHAHA.
For real though. Grain-filled or grain-free, these are legit going to be my new go-to pancake recipe!
They’re perfectly cooked, moist, and super fluffy! I love how yellow mine turned out. It really shows the difference between store-bought eggs and farm eggs. Farm eggs are SOOOOO much yellower! I know I’ve said this time and time again, but I just love examining each and every egg I get from Blake’s Dad’s farm. They’re all so different and cute! The speckled ones are my fav. These coconut flour pancakes are made with just 4 main ingredients and no oil or butter needed.
Here’s What You Need
If you’re egg free, I’m sorry but the egg is crucial to the success of these coconut pancakes! Option to change out honey for a different sweetener, or even banana! Use a 1 to 1 ratio for that.
Since these are coconut flour pancakes, I thought I’d go big with the coconutty flavor and use Blue Diamond’s new Unsweetened Almondmilk Coconumilk Blend. However, any kind of almond milk will work! Yum num num. I love how light and creamy this stuff is.
