These miniature coconut pancakes are a delicious egg free Paleo breakfast option. They are low carb, Paleo, plant based, dairy free and naturally gluten free since they're made with coconut flour! Truly, no better way to enjoy breakfast than with these moist Egg Free Coconut Pancakes.
My family is BIG on pancakes. My boys especially!
Since I'm not currently eating eggs, I thought I'd mix up our breakfast with these egg free coconut flour pancakes. That way, I can still indulge in a fancy (yet simple) weekend breakfast but stick to my egg-less diet.
These healthy coconut pancakes are:
- plant based
- made with coconut flour
- 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.

I was so happy to find an egg free and nut free pancake recipe that is also paleo! They were a little difficult to flip because they stuck to the pan a little. However, they taste delicious and are so allergy friendly! Thanks for the recipe! Love your website!
Thank you so much Ashely! I'm glad you liked them and I appreciate the review 🙂
This recipe is awesome. Yeah, they were a little bit tricky to flip but they taste super awesome. Thank you so much. Love from India X
Thank you for the review! So happy you like them 🙂
Since flaxseed is not AIP compliant, could you suggest any substitutes for it?
I’ve tried banana and apple purée, but it just doesn’t work.
Hi! I don't think anything other than ground flax seed or ground chia seed would work.
For AIP you could try Gelatin and 1-3 tbs warm water and/or 1/4 cup of boiling water. You may have to play around with those measurements 🙂 good luck fellow AIPer!
Is there any nutritional information anywhere?
Are they supposed to be gooy in the middle?
Hi! They are soft and slightly under-baked in the middle.
Calling these pancakes is a stretch. More like stove to cookies. Unfortunately did not live up to expectations.
Sorry you didn't like them - they are different than normal pancakes.
Delicious and exactly what I was looking for this morning. They took a little while to get cooking but the end result was worth the wait. As usual, your flavor combos are spot on!
I'm so glad you liked them! Thank you 🙂

These were tasty! I added frozen blueberries as a garnish after cooking and use grapeseed oil instead of avocado oil just because that’s all I had. Also I did not measure the honey and probably added a little extra. These were moist in the middle and a little crispy on the outside. I scooped a heaping tablespoon of batter in my hands and formed little pancakes. That was easier than dobbing them onto the pan because the consistency is a little different. I will definitely save this and make again. I made these with a side of eggs lol the only reason I wanted an egg free recipe is because I only had a few eggs left, but I have never used flax for eggs. I will definitely use it again! Thx for the recipe💕
I'm so glad you liked them! They are different than your typical pancake - some people love that and some don't! Glad you did 🙂
