I have been cooking gluten-free for a while now, but have found the experience of cooking pancakes frustrating.  I’m talking pancakes that are healthy, without any weird ingredients.  All the recipes I find either lack in taste, or don’t come together and fall apart when flipped.  I am happy to tell you that I have found THE BEST GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES EVER.  So good that yes, THEY WARRANT ALL CAPS YELLING AND LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!

This recipe is adapted from Food & Wine, and contains just a few whole food ingredients.  As with most coconut flour recipes, it contains a lot of eggs.  But, don’t be put off by this – the finished pancakes don’t have an eggy taste.  And, suprisingly – they don’t taste overly banana-ish either.  Their light, fluffy interior is a bit reminiscent of a ricotta pancake – but it’s totally gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and possibly even paleo.

So, here it is, a pancake that almost everyone can enjoy.  We like to have them with berries, bananas and maple syrup – but the toppings are only limited by your imagination.  Just don’t try to make a huge Uncle Buck style pancake – since there are no grains or flour in the recipe, they can be a little bit fragile – but keep them small and you’re golden. Literally.

    Hi Trudi, I made these today and they turned out great! Not as pretty as yours but delicious none the less. We had a friend drop by with fresh raspberries from their garden – it was perfect timing! Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Anna – glad they turned out well! And – not all of the pancakes that I made looked exactly like this either – there were a few rejects that didn’t make the photos – but they were still tasty!
