This is a recipe that's not suited for much substitutions. It can be made dairy free and works fine doing that. But it's not recommended to substitute the flours nor skip the eggs. These are all required to turn out as intended.

These 3 flours work together nicely to create a pancake texture you're familiar with and gives a lovely taste. The coconut flour and the plantain flour gives a hint of sweetness, making the need for added sugar unnecessary. The plantain flour will darken when it cooks, giving the pancakes a bit darker look.

For something a bit different, serve these pancakes with homemade Mango Sauce.

Use all organic ingredients. Ensure all the flour is labeled gluten free.

Pro tips for perfect grain free pancakes:
  • This batter will absorb a lot of moisture, and will get thicker as it sits. Simply add water to the batter to make it the consistency you want just before pouring.
  • This recipe is not suited for many substitutions. It can be made dairy free and will work fine doing that. But it's not recommended that substitute flours be used, nor to skip the eggs. These are all required so that the pancakes turn out as intended.
Substitutions and Notes:
  • Flour: This recipe is specifically designed for this combination of flour, and it's not recommended that any substitutions be made. The Yuca starch and flour may be sold under various names, such as tapioca, manioc or cassava. They are all suitable for this recipe.
  • Eggs: This recipe requires real eggs to be used. The eggs chemically react with the baking soda, so most substitutions won't work, and the pancakes will be flat, dense and tough.
  • Milk: Don't use mock milk for this recipe. If you don't want to use dairy milk, simply use water. It turns out great with just water.

Grain Free Pancakes

Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 5 to 10 minutes Makes: 4 servings Difficulty: Medium

Gluten free Dairy free option Grain free Soy free
Ingredients:
1/3 cup Coconut flour
1/3 cup Plantain flour
1/3 cup Yuca starch (tapioca starch), or yuca flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
Dash Sea salt
2 large Eggs
1/4 cup Coconut oil or melted butter
1/2 cup Milk or water
Coconut oil or butter, for frying pan
Substitutions and Notes:
  • Flour: This recipe is specifically designed for this combination of flour, and it's not recommended that any substitutions be made. The Yuca starch and flour may be sold under various names, such as tapioca, manioc or cassava. They are all suitable for this recipe.
  • Eggs: This recipe requires real eggs to be used. The eggs chemically react with the baking soda, so most substitutions won't work, and the pancakes will be flat, dense and tough.
  • Milk: Don't use mock milk for this recipe. If you don't want to use dairy milk, simply use water. It turns out great with just water.
Directions:
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt and mix well.
  • In a small bowl combine eggs, coconut oil and 1/2 cup milk or water and mix until frothy.
  • Add egg mixture to flour mixture and mix well. If the batter is too thick, add water to get to the consistency you want (don't add more milk).
  • Note that coconut flour will absorb a LOT of moisture / water. It is quite normal that after a few minutes this batter has thickened up. That is fine. Just add more water to get the consistency you want just before you pour out a batch. It will keep doing it, and it's perfectly fine.
  • Heat 1 to 2 teaspoons coconut oil or butter in frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add batter to make pancakes the size you want. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes, until bottom is golden brown, and bubbles on top begin to pop.
  • Flip pancakes and cook for 2 to 4 minutes, until golden brown.
  • To keep pancakes warm while you cook more, place in a small pan and put in an oven heated to 200 F.
  • Serve with your favorite pancake syrup or fruit sauce.

Enjoy!

Variations:
  • Waffles: Use this batter to make grain free waffles.
  • Pancake Mix: You can premake this to be used as a pancake mix. One good trick is to buy bags of all 3 flours that are about the same volume. Then make the entire bags worth into a mix. Measure out the flours so you know how much salt and baking soda to use in the dry mix. Then when you're ready to make pancakes, measure out 1 cup mix and use 2 eggs, 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 cup milk, and water as needed.
