Paleo Banana Coconut Flour Pancakes
The little baby of mine has had a finicky digestive system to say the least, and (eye roll) I’ve had to adjust my diet to hopefully help out our little buddy. I’m not so sure it’s working (maybe a little), either way I’m currently eating gluten-free and dairy-free to test it out thus Paleo Banana Coconut Flour Pancakes were born.
Because PANCAKES… I need them in my life no matter…even if I have to cut back on all the potential triggers for babe, I’m not cutting out my pancakes.
If you don’t need to be paleo and haven’t tried my “seriously best ever gluten free pancakes” (one of the most popular recipes on my site) head on over there for super fluffy gluten free buttermilk pancakes.
We love these coconut flour pancakes because they are:
and easy to make
Curious about coconut flour nutrition?
While it takes some time to get use to baking with coconut flour, I love it because you don’t have to use very much and it keeps your recipes lower carb and higher in fiber. 2 tablespoons of coconut flour has 60 calories, 9 grams of carbohydrate, 5 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. That’s only 4 grams of net carbs.
Two of these Coconut Flour Pancakes have 8 grams of fiber, 10g protein for about 175 calories. Many people go for coconut flour because it’s low carb– each pancake has only 9 grams and half of those grams are fiber. So 5g net carbs per pancake.
And serving up these Paleo Banana Coconut Flour Pancakes for breakfast were all to my hubs delight, since he follows a low gluten diet. Coconut flour pancakes make a nutritious breakfast, serve them with a side of eggs for even more protein!
Tips for making pancakes with coconut flour?
One thing I learned with paleo pancake making is don’t be tempted to make the pancakes too big– they flip better if you keep them at 2 tablespoons per pancake…
AND the other MUST with coconut flour pancake making is you have to add vinegar to the batter because this helps the batter become more “cohesive” and it makes a fluffier pancake. I’ve tested these several times and while it’s only a small amount of vinegar, you don’t want to leave this ingredient out.
How to meal prep coconut flour pancakes?
Another aspect that I love about making a batch of pancakes on the weekend is freezing the leftovers.
Stack the pancakes separated with parchment paper and toss them in a freezer bag.
They take about a minute to reheat and then you have a yummy breakfast at the ready for those quick mornings you don’t want to think about getting the kitchen messy.
