In my quest to serve up low carb, low-sugar or refined sugar free treats and meals for my young ones (and myself); there have been plenty of failures and lots experimenting.
Baking with coconut flour can be tricky, especially when combining it with other flours. It’s taken a few rounds, but I’ve finally found an easy-to-make, winning combination of ingredients for a low-carb, refined sugar-free pancake recipe I feel good about sharing (and feeding to my family!)

1. Gather Your Ingredients
What You’ll Need:
1 cup spelt flour
1 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon g-free baking powder
1 teaspoon g-free baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups almond, rice or organic milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2. Directions For The Wet
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and butter.
3. Directions For The Dry, Combine & Cook
In a medium bowl whisk together the dry ingredients; flours, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and coconut sugar. Combine the wet to the dry (I keep using the whisk, ensuring a smooth, creamy batter). Note that the batter will be thick. That’s okay, they’ll cook up so incredibly fluffy this way! You can add more milk to desired consistency, just don’t add too much or they’ll end of flat and dense.
The only topping for pancakes as far as I’m concerned, starting with fresh, seasonal strawberries (it’s that time agin, yay!) and organic blueberries and bananas. A winning combo.
The Drizzle: KEY
I like to top ours with a simple strawberry coulis that I make each year with the skimmed off liquid I from strawberry jam. Real maple syrup and greek yogurt are also popular last additions to this breakfast (and dinner!) favourite in our house.
Pancakes are something that all ages in a family can enjoy together; breakfast, lunch or dinner. Feel good about feeding your little (and big) ones this nutritious, refined sugar-free, low-carb option.
Because clearly they are just as much for you as they are for them!
