Gluten Free Coconut chocolate Pancakes 

A couple of months ago I made some amazing chocolate coconut pancakes for pancake day and I decided to make a healthier version. What’s great about this recipe is that these pancakes are low carb and gluten free. The pancakes paired with the mixed berries sauce is a perfect sweet combination balance.

Coconut flour is a good gluten free alternative to traditional flours. It is also high in fibre, low in carbohydrates and is packed with healthy fats.

Yield: 4-5 pancakes | Serving Size: 2 |Cooking time: Approx. 10 minutes 

Ingredients:

Toppings:

Method:

  • ​​In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and stevia (or sugar substitute of choice).
  • Add in eggs, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, coconut milk milk and stir until completely combined and thick.

  • Grease pan with coconut oil. Pour batter evenly onto the pan and cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on medium to low heat.
  • Flip the pancakes onto the other side when they begin to bubble and cook for another 1  minute.
  • To make the topping, mix frozen berries and sugar free syrup (or honey) in a bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes.

  • Serve pancakes warm topped with mixed berries.

Recipe Notes:

  • Almond milk can also be used as an alternative to coconut milk.
  • Honey or agave nectar can be used in place of stevia.
  • Coconut flour is the trickiest flour I have ever used. It is a high absorbent and absorbs the liquid like a sponge so you’ll find that your pancake mixture will become thicker with time.
