Grain Free Buttermilk Pancakes

Grain Free Buttermilk Pancakes from The Coconut Mama

Pancakes are my go-to quick and easy dinner on the days our family is busy. These grain free buttermilk pancakes can be mixed in a blender and poured straight onto the griddle. Easy peasy!

I only used 1 tablespoon of honey when I made these pancakes because we usually pour maple syrup over them. If you like your pancakes sweeter add more honey!

Grain Free Buttermilk Pancakes

It is best to make mini pancakes rather than large pancakes with this recipe. These will fall apart if you make your pancakes too big.

Griddle or pan for cooking
 
Ingredients
 
Directions

Blend buttermilk, eggs and honey together in a blender or mix in a mixing bowl. Blend until ingredients are combined. Add coconut flour, baking soda and cinnamon and blend until smooth. Let batter rest for a few minutes.

Heat griddle to low-medium heat. Pour 1/8-1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook until bottom is solid and when you are able to flip. Flip pancakes and finish cooking. Do this until batter is used up. Makes 8-10 mini pancakes.

    Thank you for the recipe. I had a big bag of coconut flour and this was the first recipe I tried. Yummy! My husband liked it too. Though my batter was more runny than expected and the first pancakes were a disaster and stuk and dripped on the flip. I added about 1/8 cup of gluten-free flour to the remaining batter and it turned out better, thicker and fluffier. Should I have just added more coconut flour? I wasn’t sure.
    Also I didn’t use a non-stick skillet. Can you recommend a good and safe non-stick skillet by the way please? They seem to be the best for making pancakes and such. Thanks!!

    Hi Tiffany!
    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I just made them for breakfast and they were delicious! I doubled the recipe and ended up with about 7 medium sized pancakes. They held together just fine. I made a strawberry and banana sauce to go over top. So good! 🙂
    Thanks again, Bonnie

    Hi!
    This is the first time I am going to use coconut flour. Though I have used virgin coconut oil and coconut sugar, it was the first time I’ve heard about the coconut flour when I visited a store that sells organic products. So I bought a kilo to try some recipes. I have used it as an extender for burger patties and found out it’s texture is coarser than the wheat or cassava flour.

    I want to try your recipe for pancakes, but, recently we found out that my daughter has allergies on eggs and buttermilk. What substitute should I use for those ingredients?

    I’m now interested to know more about coconut products. I’m glad I found your site. 🙂

    These were good. I did a version last week where a very ripe banana replaced the buttermilk and there was no need to add honey.

    Hi,

    Finally some inspiration about what to do with my coconutflour. You actually seem to be making a lot with predominantly coconutproducts rigth?Seeing these coconutty things,makes me crave even more badly to want to immigrate to a sunny place near abeach learn how to surf,skate,live a happy life etc. and just leave all my shit&’issues” behind.

    Do you happen to know if these would taste good with actual Buttermilk? and if I can skip the eggs for some more milk and if so how much more milk? or doesnt that work,dunno what eggs/yolks are for in so many (Peatish)baking and icecream recipes,I’m really a cooking noob (still looking for a Goats milk icecream recipe that uses no eggs and cream…and icecream maker) :s

    I see you recommend the “I didn’t quit sugar book”,really like to read that book and see the recipe book also but can’ afford it as I barely can scrape things financially together on wellfare. 🙁 (Care to share it?)

    Do you follow a Peatish way of eating? Through my history and all the chats/theories in various ‘scenes’ I’ve gotten quite some ‘food/macro/disordered eating&exercise&fatgain issues”….like I said I’m also a noob and just don’t know how to go about it all,could I maybe mail/contact you?…..but I also don’t want to bother you with my ‘ranting’ especially since you’re pregnant.Congratulations with that 🙂

    When it comes to using coconut flour in recipes it seems you have to use eggs, but I wonder if anyone has done it with an egg substitute. Can’t do dairy or eggs in my house…I’ve been using gelatin in a pancake recipe to replace eggs, but I use buckwheat instead of coconut flour. I REALLY miss buttermilk pancakes!

    This is super creative! I was going to try the coconut buttermilk, but I didn’t know how to use it. I might even make these this morning!

      empoweredsustenance » I’m testing coconut flour bread recipes atm. I’m going to try a soda bread with the buttermilk in hopes to come up with a lighter coconut flour bread. Wish me luck! 🙂
