Tips on how to make 3 ingredient coconut flour pancakes
- If you are in a rush, this batter can be prepared in a blender.
- Use a non-stick skillet to make these and to avoid having issues with flipping the pancakes, use a pancake spatula as it will really help.
- Let the batter rest for 5 minutes, if you’re using coconut flour as coconut flour likes to soak up the liquid. After 5 minutes you will know if your low carb pancake batter needs more liquid or not. If so, add 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk to the batter to make sure they’re as tasty and fluffy as these flourless keto pancakes.

Why do my coconut flour pancakes fall apart?
Many times, when people attempt to make coconut flour pancakes, one of the things they notice is that the pancakes tend to crumble or fall apart.
This is so because coconut flour is a gluten free flour. This means that, unlike all-purpose flour which contains gluten – a binding agent that is high in carbs and helps keep the shape of gluten based products – coconut flour does not have gluten. Also, coconut flour is very dry and requires more liquid, so food products made with coconut flour tend to fall apart easily if no binder is used.
Therefore, in order for the pancakes made with coconut flour to stay intact, one needs to use something to bind the batter together like eggs, cream cheese, or xanthan gum which will add more elasticity to ensure that the pancakes do not fall apart.
For this recipe, I’ve used both eggs and cream cheese so these coconut flour pancakes in my recipe will not fall apart as eggs and cream are a great binder for coconut flour gluten free pancakes.
You can also use these other tips to ensure your coconut flour pancakes do not crumble:
- Leave the batter to rest for 5 minutes before use.
- Lift and gently flip the pancakes so as to preserve their shape.
- Cook the pancakes over medium heat.
- The smaller the coconut pancakes, the easier they will be to flip, so make your pancakes smaller for better results.
