The Best Paleo Pancake Recipe

Since starting the Paleo diet about a year ago, we've been looking for a good Paleo-friendly pancake recipe to enjoy on special occasions. The ones we've tried, usually made with almond flour, were passable but certainly not great.

Then my wife found a recipe for coconut-flour based pancakes which had been submitted by a reader in the comments section of Everyday Paleo. We made them this morning for Mother's day, and they are awesome.

For convenience and posterity, I've converted the comment and notes into a formatted recipe, below.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup coconut flour


Beat the eggs until they're frothy. Mix the remaining ingredients together. Cook on a griddle (we use an electric griddle because that's all we have right now, but cast iron would be ideal). When you pour the batter, try to keep the cakes small. If they're difficult to flip, cook them a bit longer.
