easy gluten free coconut flour pancakes.


A deliciously fluffy stack of pancakes, just in time for Pancake Day. And guess what, these ones are totally gluten free. I've teamed up with Indigo Herbs to try out some of their awesome products and bring you a sweet treat which features some flippin' great superfoods too. The gluten free coconut pancake recipe is made using coconut flour and cooked in coconut oil. To finish, they're scattered with strawberry powder and crushed pistachios, with an obligatory drizzle of maple syrup. Read on to see how the ingredients stacked up...


As well as the premium organic coconut flour, I also tried and tested their coconut oil, slow dried strawberry flour and organic dark maple syrup. In addition to their great quality, each product had a true and deep flavour that really added to the dish. The coconut flour made for a fluffy gluten free pancake base which went well with sweet maple syrup and intend strawberry powder. I think the powder would be great in a smoothie, or perhaps to flavour yoghurt.


Shopping list.
Makes 6-8 small pancakes
♥ 3 large eggs
♥ 30g coconut flour
♥ 1 tbsp coconut oil, plus extra for the pan
♥ 1/2 tsp baking powder (gf)
♥ A splash of milk/almond/soya milk

For the toppings
♥ Crushed pistachios
Strawberry powder
♥ Organic maple syrup
♥ Fresh fruit

Step one. Mix together the beaten eggs and coconut flour and allow to sit and absorb for ten minutes.

Step two. Next, whisk in the rest of the ingredients until thick but fluffy.

Step three. Heat up a pan to a medium temperature and add 1 tsp of coconut oil. Move around to coat the pan.

Step four. Spoon the mix into the pan, around the size of a base of a mug. After a few minutes, flip over and cook the other side.

Enjoy with your favourite toppings!

  1. A couple of years ago I tried to make coconut flour pancakes and they were dreadful and inedible - I got all the quantities wrong trying to convert from an American recipe. Oops. So I am going to give these ones a go, because they look and sound delicious!
