Gluten and Grain Free Coconut Flour Pancakes (GF, V, VF)

This is a super quick & easy coconut flour pancake recipe uses coconut flour instead of white flour or oats. When using coconut flour, you do not need as much compared to other flours, a little goes a long way!

Coconut flour is a delicious and healthy alternative to wheat and other grain flours. Ground from dried, defatted coconut meat, coconut flour is high in fibre and low in digestible carbohydrates. Coconut flour is also high in protein and contains lauric acid which helps to support our body’s immune system.

Naturally gluten-free, coconut flour is perfect for anyone with gluten intolerance.
