Paleo coconut flour pancakes

As I’ve written before, eating Paleo does not mean going without your favourite treats. Pancakes are really easy to make in a Paleo style, using either almond flour or coconut flour. But you still have to perfect your pancake flipping technique – there ain’t no short cuts in that regard! On that front, I’ve got a long way to go.

This recipe is from Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint Cookbook which, admittedly, I have neglected for a while, possibly because the book design isn’t quite as sparky as others I’ve got. But the recipes really are great with such variety, so I really have no excuse.

Here’s the lowdown on making these easy, delicious and healthy pancakes…surely an oymoron?

Makes 5 large pancakes or 10 small.


3 eggs
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tsp natural vanilla extract
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 cup coconut flour
t tsp baking soda
1/2 cup water


Whisk together eggs, oil. coconut milk and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients and then add the wet ingredients, stirring until smooth. Add the water to thin the batter out until you’ve reached the desired consistency.

In a well oiled pan, cook pancakes until browned on both sides (about 3 minutes on each side).

Serve with your choice of garnishes – berries, nuts, coconut milk, cinnamon…it’s up to you!

    Looks yummy! Where do you buy coconut flour from?

      Hi Belinda,

      Are you located in Sydney? If so, you can get it from Dr Earth in Newtown (and probably Bondi Junction) but I got it quite cheaply from The Suveran on Oxford st, Bondi Junction. It’s quite a dry flour so best to be careful with quantities and add enough liquid to avoid things turning out too dry. Can be combined really well with almond flour to make delicious muffins 🙂
