Cinnamon Coconut Pancakes

I had a hard time giving up pancakes when i had to give up nuts and an even HARDER time trying to find a worthy substitute.... well i found it! Yep -- these fluffy babies are nut free!!!! The girl child asked for them every day for a week so they MUST be tasty! Hope you like them as much as she did :)

Cinnamon Coconut Flour Pancakes


4 eggs
1 cup coconut milk
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2T ground flax
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Butter ( or coconut oil) for frying


In a small bowl beat eggs until frothy, about two minutes. Mix in remaining wet ingredients.
In a medium-sized bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Stir wet mixture into dry until everything is incorporated.
Melt butter/ coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Ladle a few tablespoons of batter into pan for each pancake. Spread out slightly with the back of the spoon. The pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few minutes on each side, until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown. Flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

YAY!!! So glad you liked them! They also freeze really well in case you want to double the batch!

Wow nut and gluten-free pancakes. You hit the jackpot with these. Do you use canned coconut milk?

I use both canned (guar gum free) and home made. depends on what i have on hand :)

Have you tried these in a waffle iron? My toddler loves waffles but won't touch pancakes :)
Also, why did you have to give up nuts? (I'm new to your blog)

Adriane, did you ever try these on the waffle iron? I think I might try that this weekend, but I noticed that waffles take less eggs, more flour and use baking powder not baking soda... not sure how it will turn out.
