Low carb PANCAKES!


It’s a pancake, pantycake, or pandacake – depending on which of my children you ask. Whatever name you choose to use- they are always a favorite. Of course, if you are trying to cut/limit grains- that favorite breakfast item fast disappears off your plate. I’ve made other coconut flour pancakes recipes before. They never taste quite right though. The coconut flour makes them scratchy with a weird mouth feel. I spent the last week tweaking my recipe. That meant dozens and dozens of eggs used, and extremely happy children every morning! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Topping ideas: For the kids, maple syrup, honey thinned down and heated up, apple or peach butter, or cooked fresh fruit – and of course butter!

For low carbers: lightly whipped cream, butter, a few blueberries or blackberries. I haven’t yet found a “sugar free” syrup I would endorse – but whipped cream makes everything yummy!

This batter is thick – so you will only have a few bubble when it’s time to flip!
One flipped, one to go

Low Carb Pancakes


  • 6 whole eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk, whey or soured milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp glucomannan
  • 6 Tbs coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder



  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a blender, in the order listed
  2. Blend for 5 minutes. Start preheating cast iron skillet on medium.
  3. When the timer only has 30-60 seconds left- add the baking powder and baking soda.
  4. Cook in a lightly greased skillet for 2-3 minutes and then flip when golden brown. Batter is thick so they will only bubble lightly. Cook for another few minutes and serve!

Note: this batter will continue to thicken as it sits so don’t make it until you are ready to bake them.
