  • Heat up a tiny bit of oil in a frying pan (non-stick is best) and add a few tablespoons of the pancake batter.

Tip:Control the amount of oil you use by using a spray-on oil or rubbing a piece of greased kitchen paper over the bottom of the frying pan – too much oil will make the pancakes ragged at the edges, and too little will make them hard to flip over.

  • Cook on a low-medium heat for a few minutes until you see little bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake.

  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup (or sub any other sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice * (or substitute 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar)
  • 30 g ( cup) coconut flour
  • 170 g (1 ⅓ cup) gluten-free flour blend (or sub plain flour if not gluten-free)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 400 ml (1 ⅔ cup) unsweetened almond milk (or sub any other plant-based milk)

For frying:


  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well (no need to sift the flours) - use a balloon whisk to mix it if the batter becomes clumpy.

  • For best results, let the batter sit at room temperature for about half an hour before making the pancakes (I found this made the pancakes super fluffy, but if pressed for time the recipe still works without this step).

  • Heat up a tiny bit of oil in a frying pan (non-stick is best) and spoon or ladle in a small amount of the pancake batter.

  • Cook on a low heat for a few minutes until you see a few bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake.

  • Flip over and cook for another few minutes, until golden brown and crispy on both sides.

  • Repeat for the rest of the batter - makes around 10 pancakes.

  • Best served with extra maple syrup and fresh berries.

  • Best eaten immediately but leftovers do keep covered in the fridge - reheat in a dry frying pan.



*The lemon juice is crucial as its acidity reacts with the alkali bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) to create a fluffy batter. If not using lemon juice, substitute it with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar.

    These were probably the best pancakes I’ve ever made! They came out beautifully. I used Lakanto monk fruit syrup to keep them sugar-free, too. Thank you for this easy and delicious weekend breakfast treat that didn’t zap my energy like regular pancakes do! I’ll be returning to this recipe!

    Rated 5 for the great taste and the first chance to use coconut flour. I used apple cider vinegar, 1/2 fresh honey, 1/2 maple syrup, and 1% milk. The batter was so thick I could hardly whisk it and drop it in the pan. So, I added some more milk. I had to do it several times. I watch the video and your batter was much smother than mine. I also didn't use enough coconut oil, at first. What di I do wrong? Also, can you freeze them? There is only my husband and I most times. Thank you for your time.

      Hi thank you for your feedback. They can be frozen yes! What gluten-free flour did you use? I think this may be the issue!

    The pancakes taste delicious. Because of some health issues, I have to eat gluten-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, and vegan. Finding your blog and delicious recipes, provided me with great eating alternatives.

    Greetings from Germany!
