Coconut Flour Pancakes #BreadBakers

These tender and delicious pancakes are made with coconut flour offering a gluten free option for breakfast.

Join us as we explore Gluten Free recipes with our Bread Bakers group today...…

Today's host for Bread Bakers is also our administrator, Stacy of Food Lust People Love.  Stacy asked that we share gluten free recipes today.

Even if you are not personally gluten intolerant, it is nice to have a cache of recipes available for those times that you are entertaining and learn that one of your guest cannot have wheat products.  We are here today to provide you with a number of great ideas to add to your recipe files.

I went into my baking cupboard where I have one entire shelf filled with different types of flour.  I found an unopened bag of coconut flour.  I had no idea why I had bought it.  It must be providence.

I typed "coconut flour pancakes" into my search engine and a slew of recipes popped up.  Sweet.....
I perused them all and then made my own version based on the recipes and the reviews.

Many of the recipes used cream or milk substitutes (almond, rice, etc). One recipe I found even used sour cream.  I had some buttermilk left in my refrigerator that I had used to make these Pretzel Crusted Chicken Strips.   I used that for these pancakes.  

The biggest surprise to me, in reading all of the recipes that I found, was the little amount of coconut flour needed.  I was skeptical but figured I would start with only the 1/4 cup called for in most of the recipes.  It worked.  

I served them up topped with bananas and pure maple syrup.  Except for the Angel Face's plate.  She wanted chocolate chips in the pancakes and kiwi for her fruit.  It must have been good because she ate every drop.  I think a sprinkling of coconut would have been a perfect topping as well.

Coconut Flour Pancakes

These tender and delicious pancakes are made with coconut flour offering a gluten free option for breakfast.


1/4 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 T. sugar
3 eggs
1/2 t. coconut baking emulsion or vanilla
1/4 c. coconut flour
1/2 t. baking powder


Whisk together the butter, buttermilk, sugar, eggs, and coconut or vanilla flavoring.  Stir in the flour and baking powder, just until combined.  Let set for a few minutes while your griddle or pan gets nice and hot.

Using approximately 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake, pour batter onto hot griddle/pan and allow to cook until edges are dry and bottom is browned.  Flip and cook until other side is browned and pancakes are puffed and cooked through.  Keep warm in a 200* oven while cooking the remaining pancakes.

  1. Amazing that only a 1/4 cup of coconut flour can make enough batter for six pancakes! They look delicious, Wendy.

  2. These pancakes are so good, delicious and a perfect healthy breakfast.

  3. What a great recipe! Your pancakes are so lofty! I'm laughing at your story of finding the flour in your pantry and not remembering why you bought it. Story of my pantry and freezer.

  4. Thank you for the recipe. These were the best pancakes I’ve ever tasted in my life.

  5. Um, I'm pretty sure that I have coconut flour somewhere in my pantry. I'm also sure I have a lot of other baking ingredients that I have forgotten about - note to self clean out the pantry and make a list. That being said, this recipe looks fantastic so I know what is going to be on the menu for breakfast on Sunday.

  6. I too find some ingredients in the pantry and can't remember why I bought them. I've tried coconut pancakes and they are amazingly soft and fluffy, just like pancakes made with normal flour.
