Pancakes

 Pancakes
*Please see my NOTE*
6 eggs
6 whites
2/3 cup light coconut milk ( I like: A Taste of Thai)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup coconut flour

Combine all the ingredients in a medium pourable bowl, (I like my large Pyrex measuring cup).  Using and electric beater mix on low to incorporate the flour, then beat on high for 2 minutes.  Let rest 2 minutes while your griddle is heating up to temperature.  I like to use my griddle at about 275 degrees ( I have since bought a new griddle and have to use it at just under 350 degrees),  all  griddles vary so use whatever works best for yours.  Or you can always use a pan, the only problem with that is it will take a lot longer since you can only make 1 or 2 at a time vs. 6.  Grease your griddle lightly with some coconut oil to prevent sticking.  Pour your batter a little at a time onto the griddle, once they are all on I like to give it a good shake to flatten them out a bit, or you can use your spatula to spread them a bit.  When they start to bubble a little, they are ready to flip over.  Repeat the process till all your batter is used up.  Top with some unsweetened Natural Applesauce.  You can even top that with some defrosted frozen berries for an extra treat.  These are a staple in our house for the kids, but Dan and I won't be eating these for 30 days, while we do our whole 30.  They are the kids favorite though, so they will still enjoy them.  
I like to serve a piece of pan fried ham or some bacon with it.

*I have since changed my recipe slightly, I use 8-9 whole eggs so I don't have waste, and do the coconut milk just by eying it.  And add about  1 tsp non aluminum baking powder.  The smaller you make them the easier they will be to flip.  I have also changed to greasing my griddle liberally, sometimes repeating after each batch.  I really don't measure for these anymore because I have made them so often. They are great because the eggs and coconut flour are high in protein and make a nice treat.*

For half a batch use the following ingredients:
3 eggs
3 egg whites
1/3 coconut milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut flour
Pin It
