Coconut Flour Apple Pancakes

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday!  It seems like forever since I’ve posted a new recipe – time flies during the holidays.  🙂

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals – I love making it for dinner.  Our favorite pancake recipe is the simple coconut flour pancakes (found here) but sometimes it’s fun to spice things up a bit.  I tried this recipe back when we had apples coming out of our ears during harvest time.  They’re yummy with maple syrup or honey drizzled over them.

Coconut Flour Apple Pancakes

3 eggs

3 T of butter, melted

1/4 cup of milk (I use whole milk)

1 T of honey or maple syrup

1/2 tsp of salt

1 tsp of cinnamon

3 T of coconut flour

1 medium apple, cored and shredded

Combine all ingredients except the shredded apple in a bowl, until very well mixed and all the coconut flour clumps are removed.  Fold in the apple bits and combine well.

Cook batter in a preheated, greased skillet over medium heat until both sides are nice and golden brown.  Enjoy!

One thought on “Coconut Flour Apple Pancakes

  1. I started with this as a great base recipe but wanted to see if I could bump the protein content up. So I added a couple scoops of the Sunwarrior Vanilla protein powder, 1/4 C. almond meal, doubled the milk, added 1/2 C. nonfat greek yogurt and another egg white. Total success! Held together, browned beautifully, and 83 grams of protein in the entire recipe. Recipe yielded 14 pancakes (3-3.5 inch diameter), for a total of 5.9g protein in each. Not too shabby a start for the day! Thanks!
