Coconut Flour Pancakes


Pancakes are always a favorite for not only breakfast, but dinner time as well. Whether it's due to an allergy, not liking the bloated feeling afterwards or just wanting to experiment with different ingredients; these pancakes are perfect for the whole family!

Regardless of your own particular food beliefs, flour isn't what it used to be. Our society eats a mostly high carbohydrate and processed food diet, and it's just not good. But, that's honestly for a whole 'nother discussion.

I have tried many recipes for grain free and healthier pancakes, and I have finally found the perfect recipe I want to include in my own family's rotation going forward. You know those banana/egg/oat pancakes that everyone was going crazy for not long ago? Yeah, those have nothing on these.

These are a closer consistency and texture to your standard all purpose flour pancake, and they do not taste strongly of coconut. I won't lie, there's a hint of taste, but it's not overpowering. Especially, if you were to slather these in butter and enjoy with some syrup (real maple, please!), homemade jam or almond butter as I did.

Try them, see what you think. They are not complicated at all and use wholesome ingredients. Ingredients which will help keep you feeling satiated much longer than your typical American pancake recipe.


Coconut Flour Pancakes

Ingredients:
2 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon Swerve sugar substitute (or honey)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
Butter

Directions:
In a small bowl, mix together eggs, cream, vanilla and Swerve. In a separate bowl, combine coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Add wet ingredients into the dry, and stir together.

Melt about 1 tablespoon of butter onto a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour batter into the skillet to form pancakes. Be careful not to make too big, they can be difficult to flip the bigger they are. Cook on each side for 2 minutes, or until golden brown.

Makes 6-7 pancakes. Top pancakes with desired syrup or toppings.
