My family is BIG on pancakes. My boys especially!

These healthy coconut pancakes are:
- plant based

- dairy free
- nut free
- gluten and grain free
- lightly sweetened
They're the perfect pancake to enjoy when you want something filling, slightly sweet and delicious! Especially when topped with berries and dairy free yogurt.
Ingredients in Coconut Pancakes
These pancakes use just a few simple Paleo pantry staples. Here's what you need:
- ground flax
- coconut flour
- tapioca flour
- baking soda
- avocado oil
- honey or maple syrup
- vanilla extract
- water or plant based milk
Ground flax is used instead of eggs. When combined with water, flax makes a gel-like substance that helps bind the pancakes together.
The combination of coconut flour and (just a bit) of tapioca flour is needed to achieve the right pancake texture. These pancakes are soft, moist and tender!
Avocado oil is a great healthy fat that doesn't have much flavor - perfect for using in pancake recipes. However, you may substitute with any oil.
