Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes (gluten-free and grain-free)

Recipe from Nourishing Days

Mr. “He Cleans” requested pancakes for breakfast this weekend, and I was happy to give them a try. I haven’t made pancakes since we went gluten-free and I wasn’t too sure how they would turn out.  My experience with almond flour is that it holds up pretty good unless you get sauce or syrup on it, whereupon it turns to mush.  Coconut flour is notoriously difficult to work with, since it is a “thirsty” flour that soaks up unbelievable amounts of liquid like a sponge.  So, turning to the internet, I looked for the most reliable looking, tried-and-tested recipe I could find for coconut flour pancakes.  I found this recipe at Nourishing Days, which not only looked really good, but included a highly entertaining commentary by Shannon on the comments she has received about her pancakes.  Be sure to go read it, here!

I followed her directions exactly, except I used 1 cup of half and half instead of milk + cream.  (That really can’t be too different…)  You can also make this a dairy free recipe by using coconut milk, if you wish.  The pancakes were fluffy as advertised, with a faint taste of coconut that made me feel like I was having real cake for breakfast.  In fact, I like these pancakes FAR more than conventional pancakes, and look forward to making them again!

Ingredients: (makes about a dozen very filling, small pancakes)

  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup half & half or coconut milk (full fat)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour (I recommend Coconut Secret brand)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • coconut oil or butter, for frying (optional if using non-stick pan or griddle)

In a small bowl, beat eggs vigorously until frothy, about 2 minutes.  (There’s your exercise.)  Mix in milk, vanilla, and honey.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the dry ingredients (coconut flour, baking soda, salt).

Stir the wet mixture into the dry; mix WELL.  There is no need to worry about over-beating with coconut flour.  Allow to sit for at least 5 minutes.  Batter should be really thick, like brownie batter.

While batter is thickening, preheat a griddle over medium to medium-low heat.  Add butter or coconut oil, if needed.  Ladle about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle, spreading the batter out to 2-3-inches in diameter.  Cook for a few minutes, until the top starts to dry out and the bottom is lightly brown, then flip the pancakes over and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

Serve hot with butter and maple syrup, or with fruit.

UPDATED:  I have adjusted some of the instructions due to problems people were having with their pancakes.  I use Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Flour.  It may behave differently than other brands.  Here are some more tips for working with coconut flour that you might find useful, from Health, Home & Happiness.


Today music doesn’t have much to do with pancakes…oh well! Ornette Coleman has been a legendary, groundbreaking artist since his debut in 1950s. One of the first players in what became known as “Free Jazz” (after his 1960 album of the same name), he’s not always an easy listen, but once hooked, you’ll want to hear more. First up his latest album, Sound Grammar from 2006. Even at 70 plus years, he still sounds fierce, full of melodic ideas and revved up rhythms. This album won a Pulitzer!

Then, from 1998 with his funk group Prime Time comes Virgin Beauty, featuring Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia on three cuts. Brilliant adventures at the far ends of jazz- but still melodic as heck. So make some pancakes and immerse yourself in Ornette!

    what an awesome recipe! these were fluffy and light, with crisped, flaky edges. they had no eggy texture, and tasted like birthday cake batter! i had no issues flipping them.

    I should have trusted your directions, but I doubted that the batter was “right” when it was so thick, so I added the rest of the wet ingredients, and even added more milk. Then they wouldn’t hold together. So I added another egg and that helped, as long as I made the pancakes very small. That coconut flour is a different animal — very absorbent! My sweetie and I really enjoyed the pancakes, and will definitely try this recipe again.

    I must have done something wrong because my batter looked thick like cookie dough. I tried to add more half and half and egg to loosen the batter so it could lay in the pan and then it was too loose, wouldn’t bind and we couldn’t flip them. Maybe cookie dough appearance was just what I needed?

    • She cooks...He cleans
      January 12, 2013

      Sorry that didn’t work out, Cara. Yes, the batter should be REALLY thick. Like cookie dough or brownies. When you put the batter on the griddle, you actually have to mash it down to spread it out. I hope you can try them again and make sure not to add any more liquid. Coconut flour is just different to work with than regular flour.

  19. Antje Casarez
    January 13, 2013

    They were ok, but nothing to be enthusiastic about. Sorry. Difficult to flip but burn really quick, not a good combination. My family disliked the consistency (grainy),they tasted too coconuty and were not as fluffy as normal pancakes. I’ll stay with my traditional buckwheat-buttermilk pancake recipe. And yes, I followed the instructions a 100%. Even watched the clip.

  20. She cooks...He cleans
    January 13, 2013

    If you saw a video, you must have been at the Nourishing Days website (I don’t have a “clip”). When you were there, perhaps you noticed the “tricks and tips” section – in particular the part about grainy pancakes. Most likely you were using inferior coconut flour that had been exposed to moisture. I’d suggest trying it again with another brand, but if you don’t like the taste of coconut, I’m afraid coconut flour is not for you. Sorry!

    • Antje Casarez
      January 14, 2013

      The flour I used was fresh, I just bought it to make these pancakes. But as you said, maybe coconut flour is not for my family, or I should try some different recipes.

  21. thefoodslut
    January 16, 2013

    I just made these and they were eggy and the texture was very poor. Coconut flour made these pulpy and dry in texture. Very disappointing.

    • She cooks...He cleans
      January 16, 2013

      I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you. I have not had those problems, and have made these multiple times. Judging by the large disparity in people’s experiences, I feel that some of the problems are due to differences in the quality of coconut flour they are using. They are not all created equal – and some may have been stored in poor conditions before they were purchased.

      My recommendation for coconut flour is Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Flour. It is made from unheated coconut, is 100% organic, GMO-free, and unbleached. It also comes in a can with a resealable plastic lid, which is important in keeping moisture out of your flour.

    So, I made these pancakes, but mine were the exact opposite! They were super runny and didn’t work at all. Any ideas what I did wrong?? B/c your look awesome!

    • She cooks...He cleans
      January 25, 2013

      Sam, I’ve never heard of that problem with coconut flour. It adsorbs tons of liquid and the batter is always stiff. Maybe you don’t have real coconut flour, or the flour you have has been exposed to moisture and isn’t able to handle that much liquid. That’s the best I can come up with! You can try adding 1 less egg and less liquid and let it sit about 10 minutes to see if that helps the batter situation – or try a different brand of coconut flour. If you find a way to fix it, let us know in case anyone else has that problem! Thanks for commenting!

    I had the same problem with runniness. I added a few tablespoons of arrowroot powder thinking it would fix the problem, but it was still too runny. So, I decided to turn them into a dutch baby style pancake. Baked it in a skillet with a couple Tb of coconut oil, and dusted it with nutmeg. It worked GREAT–very fluffy and much easier than trying to flip them. My kids and I gobbled it up! I baked it at 350 for about 15 minutes in a large skillet, for anyone else who has the same issues and wants to try it,

      I used the oven method and it turned out great! I followed this recipe exactly, but added 1 tsp of super spirulina powder to the batter to give it an extra nutrient boost. (once baked you couldn’t even detect it had anything “green” in it. ;)
      I also made a warm strawberry chia seed jam to go with it. So good!

    Umm. Delicious! I didn’t have any trouble with the recipe, other than the fact I’m totally impatient when it comes to cooking and I tried to flip them too early. Then I tried a higher heat, and burned them. Once I left it on medium-low heat and waited until they were ready to flip (which was longer than 2-3 minutes for me) they were perfect! I used bobs red milk organic high fiber coconut flour and it worked :) thanks!

    Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions! The recipe seems to be very versatile…. I tried them recently with a cup of fresh blueberries!

    For those of you that got runny batter – that happened to me on vacation! I was at a higher altitude (about 6000 feet), and also was using REALLY fresh eggs and old coconut flour (stored about 2years). Not sure which of those factors made the batter runny! I added a few more tablespoons of coconut flour and let it sit for at least 15 minutes, which seemed to help. The batter was still not as stiff as usual, but the pancakes turned out great.

    I liked these, they were tasty but I think I prefer the almond flour pancakes better only because they are a bit less dense. I followed the recipe and they cooked up beautifully. Thanks for posting the recipe.

    These didn’t work for me? I don’t understand how the batter thickens, mine was thin , I beat it in my mixer for ages, let it sit for 20 mins or more, I used everything the same except for coconut milk instead of milk, the pancakes cooked up, but were thin and not sweet at all……..

      I’m sorry they didn’t work for you! I don’t know what to say that I haven’t already said in previous comments – I feel that it has to be differences in the coconut flour somehow. I don’t use a mixer for these, just a whisk, but I don’t think that’s the problem.

        My coconut flour is fairly fine but it doesn’t seem to absorb liquid, it just kind of sat in there like bits! It’s a shame these look so yummy!

    I am hoping you can help me figure this out…I made these a few months ago and my kids loved them so I stored them in my “keeper” recipe file. I made them this morning and they didn’t like them…I don’t get it so I’m trying to figure out what went wrong. Are they suppose to have a gritty texture to them due to the coconut flour? The only thing I can think of is now I store my coconut flour in the freezer..you think that could have made a difference? Also, I didn’t wait for my eggs to come to room temp. Could you help me maybe figure out what I did because I know if it was in my “keeper” file, it had to have been good!! Not sure what happened! Thanks!!! :)

    Hi Christy I’m not sure exactly what changed, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the coconut flour. Maybe it was fresh when you first made the pancakes, and now in the meantime the flour has adsorbed moisture or something from the freezer? Or is drier because of the freezer? I don’t know, but I bet there was a change and the recipe needs to be modified some. I doubt the egg temperature made much difference.

    I googled ‘gritty coconut flour’ and it looks like that is a common problem. Basically it is the fibrous part of the coconut, dried and powdered. All that fiber could be gritty. Since it really adsorbs liquid well, but slowly, maybe letting the batter rest for a longer time will decrease the grittiness, or maybe it needs more liquid. You might try letting it rest longer, and if it seems too dry, start adding 1 or 2 T more liquid at a time to get it to a better consistency.

    I store my coconut flour in the refrigerator in a sealed container. I don’t know any reason why the freezer would be a problem, as long as it is sealed well.

    Good luck with your next batch! Hate for you to lose a “keeper”! :-)

    Thank you for this lovely recipe. It tasted great! I just started Paleo and this is wonderfull besides eating eggs ;-). A question: can you freeze these pancakes, since I usually don’t have much time in the morning.

    Love from Holland,

      Hi Wendy! Thank you for your lovely comments! I have not tried freezing the pancakes, but I have stored them in the refrigerator for up to a week and they were fine. I think there would be no problem freezing them. <3 Nancy

    Thanks for your answer! I think I’ll try freezing them.
