Low Carb Coconut pancakes are slightly higher in carbs so are a treat for my active children, so please do not send the low-carb police round, I have not gone crazy. Update :: I have since perfect the best waffle – ever! I even won the “keto waffle goddess” award. Click here to take a look.
I keep on trying to find the best low carb pancake. I have previously made paleo pancakes but because the main thickener is coconut flour, many find coconut flour tricky to work with. You must wait for it to absorb the liquids to thicken the batter and the amount of coconut flour required is dependent on the humidity in the air and the size of eggs used.
I have adapted my previous recipe to include more unsweetened desiccated coconut which gives the pancakes a great texture and is easier to turn over in the pan..
You’ll see I serve the coconut pancakes with fruit for my children as they can tolerate more carbs than adults and they are incredibly active. Coconut pancakes are their treat and so much healthier compared to regular wheat and sugar pancakes served with maple syrup.
Serve with whipped cream or coconut cream and berries for a tasty breakfast, or make a double batch and pop them in the fridge ready for school lunches.
Low(er) Carb Coconut Pancakes
Coconut pancakes are a little higher in carbs, so reserve them for the children who will devour them and lick the plate clean.
Mash the bananas, and add the eggs one at a time.
Mix in the coconut cream.
Add all the other ingredients. Mix well with a stick blender with the blade attachment, to make a smooth batter
Heat butter in a frying pan on a medium heat. Add more butter in between cooking each batch of pancakes.
Fry a spoonful of pancake mixture until golden on both sides. Allow them to cook through to the centre before flipping them.
* Coconut flour - you may need more coconut flour to make these bake into firm pancakes, depending on the size of eggs you use and the humidity in the kitchen.
