Pancakes made from coconut flour might just be your new favourite breakfast recipe. These are low-carb and high in protein which tastes just like an ordinary pancake but more pleasant to record in your meal planner app.
The good news is that this recipe is also ideal for meal prep which you can store in your fridge for most of the week and reheat in the mornings. All you need to do is just add a nut butter or fresh fruit.
This is a real time saver and is worth the extra effort on Sundays when I prep a huge batch for the week.
Why use coconut flour?
Coconut flour is simply ground coconut which can be a great replacement for wheat flour in baking recipes.
It is gluten-free, high in protein, rich in fibre, good for digestion and blood sugar stability.
However, it is important to note that coconut flour is very different to wheat flour which does not require equal measurements a direct substitute. Instead use 1:4 ratio as a replacement for wheat flour.
