  • 6 eggs
  • 6 Tbsp milk (almond or coconut milk works fine too and we've even used water in a pinch)
  • Splash vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey optional
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup melted virgin coconut oil


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together. I’ve found that adding the oil after everything else is combined works best to get the right texture. We used to use our stand mixer for this, but now we use our Vitamix 750 and the results are better than ever. I HIGHLY recommend using a high speed blender if you have one.
  2. Let the batter stand about 5 minutes so the coconut flour can absorb everything the way it likes to.
  3. Mix one more time.
  4. Cook pancakes over medium-low heat on a cast iron griddle brushed with just a little more coconut oil, or in a skillet. They take a little longer than regular flour pancakes do, but don’t be tempted to turn up the temperature – you’ll just end up burning them! Slow and low heat is better for coconut flour.
  5. Flip when you notice little bubbles starting to pop up in the batter.
  6. Finish cooking on the other side until the coconut flour pancakes are fluffy and set.
