I admit, I am no chef, but I am a mom and believe me - my toughest critics are my children. Talk about fussy eaters! They eat potatoes, only if I mash them. They love broccoli, only if it’s boiled. Eggs? Any time of the day, but only scrambled. The list goes on and on.
I’ve had to spend hours in the kitchen figuring out a way to cook two separate meals so that everyone is happy, while not compromising on nutrition. At least I have a few coconutty recipes that everyone loves.
These low carb coconut flour pancakes are not only kid-friendly but gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly. ;-)
I've finally found a coconut flour pancake recipe that my kids like. Now I can make sugar free, flour free pancakes that are healthy. And I can enjoy them with the kids. I tried a few coconut pancake recipes, and two of the four that I tried came out a flop. Coconut flour is not the same as cake flour and if you have never cooked with it before you need to know a few principles.
Mix all the ingredients together. Melt the coconut oil in the frying pan. Fry on low heat with a lid on. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Enjoy with honey and coconut butter! ;-) Or any other topping of your choice.
I have to give credit for this recipe. I initially found it here but modified it by replacing the cow's milk with coconut milk and sugar with Xylitol. Thank you girlvsdough for helping me create the perfect recipe!
These coconut pancakes go really well with our homemade coconut jam!
This recipe is my second choice since the kids don't like it and the dough doesn't stay together as nicely as the above recipe, but I enjoyed these, and so did the rest of the family.
They have a lovely, sweet cinnamon flavor. The only thing I would recommend is that you cook the pancakes on low heat so that they can cook through and not burn on one side; maybe leave a lid on them. Also, one tbsp of the mix is enough for one coconut pancake...more than this will be challenging to work with.
So, here is the cinnamon coconut paleo pancake recipe:
Separate the eggs. Mix all ingredients into a bowl. Put a little coconut oil in your frying pan on medium heat. Place tbsp of the mix in the pan. Fry until golden brown on each side.
