I think I’m on a continuous pursuit for the perfect low carb pancakes! There aren’t many boxed pancake mixes that I like or that I’m willing to drop $8/box on, especially when its SO easy to mix up pancakes! Therefore, I’m constantly tweaking and trying new ratios of various ingredients…and I think I nailed this one!
This recipe uses a few different flours to give them “fluff”. I find straight almond flour to be a bit heavy, but the tapioca and coconut flour mixed in to this recipe helps a great deal. In regard to flavor profile – I add both vanilla and cinnamon, but if you want a more savory pancake, just leave those out.
As far as toppings go, if you want to keep it super low carb stick to berries, nut butters, coconut flakes, or even whipped cream (milk or non-dairy varieties w/ no added sugars). If you’re going savory, top with avocado and sausage, or make an egg and cheese pancake ‘sandwich’. As all pancake lovers are well aware, the possibilities are endless when it comes to pancake toppings!
* 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil
* 1 egg (pastured is best)
* 6 Tbsp almond milk (can sub any milk or even water)
Whisk all dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
* 1 Tbsp coconut flour
* 2 Tbsp tapioca flour
* 1/2 cup almond flour (fine ground)
* 1 pinch sea salt
* 1 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp cinnamon
* 1/8 tsp vanilla powder or 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Whisk all dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Combine the mixed wet ingredients into the dry and mix until fully incorporated. If too thick, add another 1 Tbsp of milk until you find a nice consistency.
Drop about 1/4 cup of batter onto a medium-hot griddle and cook approx. 2-3 mins per side (time will depend greatly on temperature of griddle). Makes about 6 medium pancakes.
* shredded coconut flakes

Serve up with eggs, bacon or sausage and ENJOY!
