Ultimate Coconut Flour Pancakes

This recipe comes to us from Lauren at Empowered Sustenance and was great for my Pancake/Fat Tuesday breakfast this week!

Ultimate Coconut Flour Pancakes


For the Pancakes

  • 3 Tbsp Coconut flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil, plus extra for the pan
  • 3-4 Tbsp Coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Apple cider vinegar

For the strawberry sauce

  • 1 cup Organic strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp Creamed coconut at room temperature
  • Honey or stevia to taste


  1. Heat a skillet (preferably cast iroover medium high heat. Stir together the coconut flour and eggs until a smooth paste forms. Stir in the applesauce, oil, coconut milk, and stevia until smooth. Just before cooking, stir in the baking soda and vinegar.

  2. Add about a tablespoon of oil into the hot pan. Cook the pancakes in the skillet. For best results, make smallish pancakes so they are easier to flip. Top with syrup or Creamy Strawberry Sauce.

  3. To make the strawberry sauce, blend all ingredients in a food processor until creamy.

Recipe Notes

For any leftovers, I usually separate each pancake with wax paper, place in a freezer bag, and store in the freezer until ready to have again. Once taken out of the freezer, I will defrost them in the microwave oven then eat as indicated above with either pure maple syrup or the leftover strawberry sauce.
