Instructions

Notes

Make It Personal:
  • To add a natural sweetness and added electrolytes this recipe uses Coconut Water as its liquid component. You can also substitute with sparkling water for a great way to make even fluffier pancakes.
  • You can also substitute coconut water with Almond Milk or Coconut Drinking Milk.
  • To add extra sweetness to your pancakes add 1 tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup or Raw Honey.
  • To add extra sweetness to your Smashed Berry Jam add 1 - 2 teaspoons Pure Maple Syrup or Raw Honey.
Recipe Tips:
  • Use room temperature eggs when combing wet ingredients together otherwise the coconut oil can begin to solidify when it comes in contact with cold eggs.
  • When cooking with Coconut Flour, it absorbs liquid quickly. Be sure to prepare your batter immediately before cooking for the best results.
    You can also use defrosted from frozen berries instead of fresh.
Sensitive to FODMAPs?
  • Depending on your sensitivity to coconut products you may or may not be able to tolerate these Coconut Pancakes.
