But you get different results and that’s what makes it fun.
Coconut flour is absorbing, so you have to be careful, otherwise your result will be a trifle dry.
So you increase the eggs a bit, and that helps.
But in reality, this pancakes comes out fairly dense, and therefore it’s actually a good substitute for a dessert pancake. So feel free to slather it with some chocolate and fruit and use it that way.
It still works fine as a breakfast item however.
- 2 Tbsp. coconut flour
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 Tbsp. shredded coconut
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 whole eggs
- Mix all the ingredients together into a batter.
- Cook as you would any normal pancake.
SERVES: 5 pancakes
NOTES: You can omit the shredded coconut if you wish. You might substitute blueberries, or add some shredded coconut on top as a garnish. You might as well add a 1/3 c of sour cream to the batter. If it appears too thick, add a bit of milk until the consistency is right. Another egg could also be added, and the protein powder eliminated if you don’t want that. As you can see, you can play with this fairly easily. If you omit the protein powder, add another two tbsp of the coconut flour.
