Coconut Flour Pancakes

For some time now, I’ve struggled to find a good recipe for coconut flour pancakes. These beauties above did not come about easily.

You see, coconut flour is a temperamental beast. It creates tasty mounds, for sure, but they have the ability to be crumbly or sloppy, and quite texturally displeasing. And what’s fun about that?

Pancakes should be pure sunshine, tasting of lazy Summer mornings that roll around after evenings dancing under a marquee on the lawn. They should remind you of being in New Hampshire with friends, riding boats and eating lobster rolls. They should make you think of Diner dates, scoops of pumpkin ice-cream and chasing chipmunks. They should be delicious, decorated with grilled bananas and dressed in sweet Vermont maple syrup, a lasting reminder of my friend’s wedding that one Summer in America.

These are for you, De. Love and miss you XO

Happy Wednesday Breakfast Club, friends.

    What a beautiful wedding memento!

    I agree, I’ve been enjoying experimenting with Coconut Flour, when the balance is out it’s a true disaster, but when it’s right – it’s oh-so-right!

    I enjoyed a quick green smoothie this morning – Spinach, Kale, Banana, Pear, Blueberries, Ice, Cinnamon and Honey..deeeelicious!

    Happy Wednesday 🙂 xx

    Heidi Sze.. oh my. You are the sweetest, most thoughtful person in the world. This just made me so happy and so nostalgic! I am no doubt going to trek down to Wholefoods, purchase some coconut flour and make these on the weekend (and take photos for you.. but they won’t look quite like yours!)I already have 2 huge glass jars of Maple Syrup which I brought back from a place by the Inn. Thank you, Heidi. This means so much to me.

    Thank you for this. I’ve been so obsessively remaking my coconut flour muffins every time I eat the last one of the previous batch that I’d near forgotten how good other coconut flour treats can be. xo
