Paleo Coconut Pancakes

*this recipe makes 5 medium sized pancakes*


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 4 tbsp coconut milk (don’t shake the tin & take from the top)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp sugar (I use Xylitol)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • additional coconut oil & butter for cooking


Blend eggs, oil, coconut milk, sugar & salt.
Combine coconut flour with baking soda and mix into batter.
Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil & a knob of butter in a pan or flat skillet. Spoon batter (about 2tbsp per pancake) into hot pan/skillet to make the pancakes.
Batter will be thick but will flatten out when cooking.
Makes 5-6 pancakes.

  1. And I for one can vouch that these were amazeballs! Hey guess what? I went to that Health Food store yesterday where Ian’s been getting his MCT oil. I hadn’t gone inside before but it’s amazing! I got coconut flour, coconut flakes and bags of activated nuts! Yeah!!
