Coconut Flour Pancakes

These gluten-free, low-carb coconut flour pancakes have a light texture and subtle nutty flavor. They're great with a pat of butter and maple syrup, but if you prefer to keep the carbs down, skip the maple syrup and serve with a handful of fresh berries instead.

  • ¾ cup coconut flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 cup half-and-half

  • ¼ cup canola oil, plus more for griddle

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • Pure maple syrup (optional)


  1. Whisk coconut flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk eggs, half-and-half, oil and water in a separate medium bowl. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until mostly smooth.

  2. Lightly brush a griddle or nonstick skillet with oil; heat over medium-high heat. Working in batches and using a scant 1/4 cup for each pancake, scoop the batter onto the hot pan. Using a spoon or small offset spatula, lightly flatten and spread each pancake about 1/4 inch thick. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Brush the pan with more oil as needed between batches. If desired, serve the pancakes with maple syrup.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
