Healthy Low Carb Coconut Flour Pancakes
These Healthy Low Carb Coconut Flour Pancakes are THE best way to start your day.
One bite and you’ll wonder how these Paleo Pancakes are sugar free, low carb, high protein, high fiber, gluten free, and dairy free too!
Coconut Flour Pancakes have been on my recipe wishlist for FAR. TOO. LONG. Like, I’ve pinned probably a dozen recipes and found about another dozen bookmarked on my computer. When I finally realized how many recipes I saved I took a closer look at each and every one of them. They looked so thick and fluffy, but I wasn’t a fan of how complicated the recipes were or the ingredients they called for — SO much butter, SO many eggs, a little too much maple syrup or honey, full fat coconut milk, and even cream cheese.
Maybe I’m just lazy, but I’m not going to open a can of full fat coconut milk just to use ⅓ cup of it. I prefer to use the whole can… it’s hard to figure out what to do with the rest of it, and I hate wasting that goodness! And the same thing goes with cream cheese.
After looking at all the recipes I bookmarked, I started to piece together a coconut flour pancake recipe of my own. I’m glad I finally got around to making these because daaaayuuummm gurlllll they fine as hell!
Not only are these Low Carb Pancakes fluffy, cakey, sweet, and delicious, but they’re also packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, with none of the added sugar, gluten, or dairy.
Oh, and they’re SUPER filling too. These will keep you full and satisfied for hours (unlike typical pancakes made with refined white flour and white sugar, leaving you hungry again in 30 minutes).
Up the ante and add some crumbled nuts or mini chocolate chips! Serve it with sliced bananas, or just douse your stack with enough pure maple syrup to run Canada dry. The REAL stuff, not that fake Aunt Jemima shit. As a Canadian, that’s what I do. It’s delicious and I can’t recommend it enough 😉
Are you ready for the fluffiest, puffiest, sweet, and heckin delicious pancakes of your life?! Oh yes, yes you are.
Healthy Low Carb Coconut Flour Pancakes
- Spray a nonstick griddle with cooking spray and place over medium/medium-high heat (like, a notch above medium).
- In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk together until completely combined. Batter will be thick, like muffin batter.
- Use a muffin scoop to scoop the batter onto the griddle, and the round side of the scoop to form a circle pancake. These take a while to cook thoroughly (~3 minutes each side), so be patient! When the edges appear dry, flip and cook the other side. Continue this until all the batter is used up.
- Serve with natural whipped cream, yogurt, homemade maple syrup, sugar-free chocolate chips, a pat of butter, or whatever toppings you like. Enjoy!
Awwww yeahhhhh! These Paleo Pancakes have just 220 calories per serving, plus a whopping 11g of filling fiber, 15g of satiating protein, and zero added sugar per serving. BOOM SHAKALAKA.
Healthy fats, complex carbs, lots of fiber, and tons of protein — this is the kind of breakfast we can feel good about indulging in. Especially when it doesn’t taste sugar free, low carb, high protein, high fiber, gluten free, dairy free, or paleo IN THE SLIGHTEST.
This is a pancake stack you can count on.
LOOK. AT. THAT. FLUFFY. DECADENCE.
JUST LOOK AT IT!! Okay, okay, I’ll calm down now. But seriously, you need dis in yo face. Like, yesterday 😉
With love and good eats,
Wow, these look good. I’ll have to try this, my pancakes never look that fluffy!
These look incredible! With those nutrition facts, it’s hard to believe they’re as good as you describe – I guess I’ll have to test them out. Just to make sure. 🙂
I just made this into waffles. YUM!
Hi Jess, today is the third time that I try your “fluffy” pancakes and they taste great but to be honest with you they are as flat as a wall. 🙁
That’s so weird… are you weighing out your ingredients with a kitchen scale? And is the batter super thick like muffin batter?
How much Heavy cream instead of almond milk? We have a nut allergy and want to keep them low carb.
I haven’t used heavy cream here so I can’t be 100% sure, but I would recommend starting out by using the same amount as the almond milk (1 cup). Since heavy cream is much thicker, I’d suggest keeping an extra bit handy (like ¼-⅓ cup). Hope you like the pancakes! 🙂
Approximately how much sweetener is the 5 packets? I have a bag of swerve sweetener, but no packets. Maybe 2-3 tablespoons?
5 packets of sweetener has the sweetness of 10 tsp of sugar (= 3 tbs + 1 tsp). I use Swerve too (love it!) which replaces sugar at a 1:1 ratio, so you’ll need 3 tbs + 1 tsp 🙂
Hope you like the pancakes Vanessa!
What is the serving? Only for 1 pancake out of 4? Or the whole recipe? 1/4 cup of batter? 2tbs?
1 serving is 4 pancakes (it says in the nutrition label in the recipe box) 🙂
Wow that’s amazing thank you!
I can’t hardly believe that all 4 pancakes is the serving Size also! & for the nutritional facts!
Thank you so much!
Btw how many TBS would you say of batter should I use for each pancake to make 4?
What did I do wrong? The batter came out like cookie dough so I added more almond milk but the pancakes just fell apart and didn’t taste well at all.
The batter is supposed to be thick. Leave it as is, and don’t add more milk to the recipe.
Hi – yummy flavor but more like crepes –
What about adding water to lighten up? Or lemon juice? Would like more fluff – ThX!!
You can definitely try adding a tiny splash of water or lemon juice! Maybe switch out an egg for 2 egg whites as well, and whisk them well to add more fluff 🙂
I’ve tried several recipes and this is my favorite! I do a couple of modifications:
– Water instead of almond milk (didn’t have any) and I didn’t measure…just did enough for the right consistency
– I did one scoop of flavored protein powder instead of stevia
– Added a little cinammon
– Ate with blueberries we recently picked and froze.
Great high protein treat! Also good for post workout.
Ooooo those are such good ideas. I need to give a scoop of protein powder a try!! Glad you liked the pancakes 🙂
What coconut flour are you using? That nutritional label seems off compared to what I just tracked with mine. 75g of coconut flour is equivalent to 45g carbs and 300 calories just in the flour…
