How To Make Low Carb Coconut Flour Pancakes
Making low carb pancakes is just an easy as making regular pancakes. You are pretty much just replacing regular flour with coconut flour.
In our recipe, we begin by whisking together the wet ingredients, including salted melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and heavy cream in a medium bowl.
You then combine the dry ingredients consisting of coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder.
If the batter ends up with a thick consistency, then simply add a little water, heavy cream, or another egg.
You can cook the pancakes on a non-stick frying pan or a grill heated at a medium-high temperature.
You will want to get two separate mixing bowls and combine the dry ingredients separately from the wet ingredients.
Once mixed in together in a mixing bowl, you want to whisk thoroughly to combine and transfer to a non-stick frying pan using a spoon or ladle.
If using a spoon flatten out to a thinner consistency.
Fry for a few minutes until it starts to brown then flip over to cook the other side. When finished, drizzle with sugar-free maple syrup or your favorite topping.
Eat with a knob of butter to maintain your keto macros or eat it plain.

Everybody’s scales are slightly different, and after mixing all the ingredients, you may end up with a thick batter.
If the mixture is too thick, you can add another egg, a tablespoon or two of water or heavy cream.
