I enjoy pancakes but never eat them. The thought of flour and sugar as a way to start the day just sends me running. But gluten-free, low-carb, not-flour flours came to the rescue.
Makes 6, 3" pancakes. Small but filling.
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt (optional)
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1-2 Tablespoon sugar (ordinary or equivalent in sweetener)
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
- Mix wet ingredients, beginning by beating eggs until frothy.
- Mix dry ingredients and then stir through wet ingredients.
- Let everything sit for five minutes. (for coconut to hydrate)
Oil/butter your pan and heat over medium heat.
Pour about a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, allow the bottom to brown before flipping them over.

The whole batch amounts to approximately:
9 g net carbs
I use liquid sucralose, which has zero carbs. You can crush some Splenda tablets or use the higher carb granular Splenda.
Coconut flours vary quite a bit in their carb count, do check.
I ate a few of these topped simply with butter, with a hot mug of cinnamon chai, and melted into my day.....
