Low Carb Coconut Pancakes

Remember the coconut muffins I shared on Monday? Well I am going to let you in on a little secret. The batter also works great for pancakes; and just like the muffins they are high in protein, healthy fats from the coconut, and fiber that makes them a great breakfast choice to fuel your whole morning.

A few tips about working with coconut flour. It’s incredibly absorbent and will soak up any liquid you add to it. These pancakes are on the thick side for that reason, but if you want something thinner just add more milk or even water. You can thin out the batter as much as you like. You can also add some shredded coconut (unsweetened for low carb/Paleo), fruit, a mashed banana, chocolate chips, or nut butter to the pancakes to mix up the flavors. My personal favorite is shredded coconut and a touch of lime zest in the batter. Yum.
