Keto Coconut Flour Pancakes

Keto Coconut Flour Pancakes

I admit that I'm greedy. I'm not very proud, but I'm learning to live with it and to control myself, especially when it comes to pancakes, donuts and other floury wonders. Even when I'm on a diet I try to eat tasty food, not only healthy. I often adapt the recipes, I test many combinations. This recipe for fluffy pancakes is a real success after many attempts. The whole family loves them, they are quick to make, they are tender, soft, with a light coconut aroma. I was even told that they were better than the classic ones, so they are worth trying and considering.

I definitely fry them with coconut oil or Ghee, both have a high burning point and are very healthy for frying and cooking.

Coconut flour has been easy to find for some time now. I buy it from online stores or from the health store in the neighborhood. I think coconut flour is very interesting, especially in various low-carb desserts. It has a sweet taste and a light coconut aroma. If you only use coconut flour, the pancakes will be a little more crumbly, I recommend adding some psyllium bran for a more elastic texture.

For me, these pancakes are a delight. I forgot the taste of the classic ones, I really recommend them. I make them during the low-carb periods and I don't worry about craving for something good yet not feeling any remorse. See a section of these wonderful fluffy pancakes in the last steps.

In a different bowl, a larger one, beat the eggs and pour buttermilk/yogurt.

Step 5

Notice how the batter is slightly more runny, set aside for 10-15 minutes.

Step 6

Now see what happens - the coconut flour swells and the batter becomes somewhat thicker and denser. That's what I like most about it, you don't need to use much and, in addition, it has a reasonable price.

It seems to me one of the best flours for low-carb desserts, especially for the above reasons :)

Step 7

I used organic coconut oil to fry the pancakes. I really recommend buying and using it with confidence when cooking/frying/baking etc.

Step 8

Heat about 2-3 tablespoons in a medium pan.

Step 9

Then, with a spoon, I take some pancake batter and place it in the pan. Because it's dense, I flatten it and give it a round pancake shape - it's not a runny batter.

Step 10

I fry the pancakes over medium to low heat, they tend to brown quickly.

Step 11

With a spatula, turn to the other side and cook until they are just as nicely browned.

Step 12

As I fry the pancakes, I transfer them on a larger plate. I repeat the process in the pan - I heat coconut oil, I shape the pancakes with a spoon and I cook them until brown on both sides.

Step 13

Look at the section. Besides the fact that they are fluffy, they are also tender, soft and very fragrant.

Step 14

We like them with a spoonful of sour cream or Greek yogurt, some berries or jam (my favorite sugar-free and no-boiling jam).
