Soy-free, low-carb pancakes. These taste really great with butter and just a smidge of sugar-free syrup. Try adding 1/2 tsp vanilla extract to the batter.


  1. Whisk together butter, cream, Splenda, salt, and eggs.
  2. In another bowl, combine coconut flour and baking powder.
  3. Mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  4. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and grease lightly with oil or butter.
  5. Spoon batter onto skillet to make pancakes about 3 inches in diameter.

Better than "real" pancakes! It's great to have a low carb, gluten free alternative. Thanks. I am sensitive to dairy as well as gluten so I substituted almond mild for the cream and I don't like Splenda so I used Xylitol. Perfect!

I was looking for a recipe that was "Whole30 compliant" (basically Paleo...dairy and gluten free). Trying several other recipes yielded disappointing results. Adapting this recipe to my needs, I used almond butter in place of regular butter, and coconut milk in place of heavy cream. I also bumped up the quantity of coconut milk to twice the amount that is listed for heavy cream (ie for every egg used, 2 TBS of coconut milk). These cakes turned out great. Nutty, fairly moist and quite filling.

I cut this way down as 16 pancakes was a bit too much for DH and myself but it turned out ok, I am still experimenting with different flours and this was my first recipe with all coconut flour. I found them to be a bit chewier for me but the flavour was fine maybe my flour wasn't the best but I didn't like the texture sorry. because I cut it way down I do think that might have something to do with it. thank you for posting.
