Almond Coconut Pancakes {grain-free}

My oldest daughter was diagnosed with Lyme Disease several weeks ago.  Treatment requires a 21 day round of antibiotics.  Because of this we are all going on the SCD diet for the next 6 weeks.  This has me experimenting in the kitchen more than normal.   These pancakes are a hit and the platter is always bare when breakfast is over.  Soft, fluffy, and naturally sweet from the coconut flour.    No one will ever know these are grain-free.

    I’m sorry to hear about your daughter. I also have Lyme. I’m not sure how much you know about it, I’m sure you are researching it like mad. If this is a new infection, 21 days of abx should be adequate. If she has had it for a while, be aware that it may take more than 21 days. The longer between the original infection and the diagnosis, the more gnarly it is to treat. So be vigilant and pay attention to any new and emerging symptoms. Lyme can look like a lot of things. Best of luck to you and yours, and thank you for the pancake recipe.

    These are by far the best pancake recipe I have come across. Others have been very fragile and fallen apart. Thanks!

    These were the BEST pancakes ever! We made ours with triple berries in them. They came out to 13.3 grams of protein if you make 6 with batter. That’s per pancake. My husband loved these so much he got up from the table and immediately threw out my old gluten free recipe

    Just made these! They are great. I burned the first batch because I had the heat too high (honey does that), and so I lowered the heat to about 50%, and they came out perfectly. Thanks so much! I need these as I am transitioning to a gluten-free life:)

    I made them with 1Tb THM sweet blend and they taste sweet enough by themselves, however, they also taste like scrambled eggs. Yuck. Any advice for next time?

      I’m sorry you didn’t like them Tina. Coconut flour tends to have an eggy/fluffy texture due to the eggs needed to hold it all together.

    I’ve made these pancakes twice now, once for my *very* skeptical family (esp. my dad, he loves himself some “real” bread :P) and now again for myself and my two-year-old. They are absolutely delicious. There are several food allergies and food sensitivities in my family; my mom, brother and older sister all have had strong reactions to several food groups. My dad is one of those “steel guts” people who could eat anything and be unfaced. Sadly, that means he’s of the mind that a gluten-free lifestyle is just a marketing ploy, etc. Sickness in the family is always a catalyst, for better or for worse. Because symptoms developed gradually for most of my family, it has been especially difficult to change old eating habits. Everything is compared to the “original”; whether it be bread, pancakes, you name it. So the bar was set high (also come from a family of great cooks.). Long story short, these passed the test. My dad ate them, asked for more and complimented the recipe! Dairy is also out for us, so I left the yogurt out. I forgot to make a substitution, and they still came out amazing! So I know I have a winner in my hands, adaptable, healthy, tasty. Thank you!!! and sorry for writing a novel on here…:P

    These turned out so yummy! My kids loved them too! Make sure the pan doesn’t get too hot. They burn easily. Im going to make these again in a minute but I’m going to try substituting the yogurt for organic pumpkin pie puree this time!
