Cook Time
  • 1/4cup coconut flourI use this brand
  • 1/8cup arrowroot powderI use this brand
  • 1/2teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4teaspoon cinnamonoptional
  • pinch of salt
  • 2large eggsroom temperature (if using coconut oil this is important)
  • 2tablespoons melted coconut oilor butter
  • 1/4cup + goats milkI have also used coconut or almond milk with success
  • 1tablespoon maple syrup (can use less or use honey)
  • 1/4teaspoon vanillaOptional-I use this brand
  1. Heat your pan or griddle to medium low, make sure it’s lightly greased
  2. In a small bowl whisk or sift together dry ingredients (coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt) until combined
  3. In a medium bowl, mix wet ingredients (eggs, oil, milk, maple syrup, vanilla)
  4. Add the dry mix and whisk until fully combined. Don’t fear overmixing, there’s no gluten. *If batter appears too thick (it will be a bit thicker than regular pancake batter, but if it’s looking like biscuit dough add a little extra liquid (1tbsp at a time)*
  5. Let the batter stand for at least 5 minutes. It will thicken as the coconut flour absorbs much of the liquid. The batter should be really paste-y thick after resting. If its dry and clumpy, add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time, until a thick batter forms.
  6. Drop 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake onto the preheated and spread the batter out a little, I pat it down with a wide flat spatula. You want these to be small tea-cake sized. Only cook one at a time, my SO tried cramming all of them on a small round griddle pan at once and he didn’t have a good time flipping haha. You’ll need to use care and maybe an extra spatula or fork to help with the flip. Cook for about 3 min,. Then cook the other side for a couple more minutes.
  7. Keep a close eye- they burn easily
  8. I’ve eaten these hot (best) and lukewarm (still yummy), I have not yet tried freezing them
  9. Suggested sides: bacon, fruit, more bacon and maybe some tasty maple sausages
