Number of Servings: 6


    2 eggs (Eggland's Best)
    1/2c or 56g almond meal (Bob's Red Mill)
    1c or 68g shredded coconut, unsweetened, unsulphured (mine is a local health food store brand)
    1 can or 400mL/g Coconut Milk (Organic Native Forest)
    1/2t sea salt (Redmond sea salt)
    1/2t baking powder
    1/2t or 1g cinnamon (to taste)
    gluten free vanilla, optional (to taste)


I finally made these using Thai Kitchen organic coconut milk. The batter was kind of runny. I first used an iron skillet and it must have been too hot and small. I couldn't turn the one pancake in it. I switched to a larger Calphalon skillet and it worked better. I used coconut oil to grease the pan (about 5g or about a teaspoon). It took a good 5-7mins to cook one side and about 4-5mins after turning. I added another 5g of coconut oil to the pan after 3 pancakes.

This batch was flimsy and easily broke apart - maybe I didn't cook long enough? They did come out clean from the pan.

I wonder if the Organic Native Forest coconut might have produced a different product, but the Thai brand was what I had on hand.

I originally thought this recipe would serve 8, but got 6-1/2c servings.

I used both nutmeg and cinammon, and also used 1/2t of vanilla. I topped it with a couple of raisins and plain yogurt. It was very filling.

    Admittedly, I was a tad skeptical, ended up being VERY good. Barely sweet, but balanced with the fresh straawberries and bananas I added to dress it. I used regular coconut milk as opposed to canned. I found I need a higher cooking temp then grain cakes, but very fun and good. Will do again! - 8/22/11

  • Incredible!
    I used Earth Fare's brand of coconut milk which was verrry oily and thick and it made a thick batter. I love coconut so the taste was great. I got a couple too dark and it only took a couple of minutes per side which really surprised me. Thanks for transferring this to Spark People. It was fun!! - 3/27/11

    This recipe was tasty. I made it without any difference from the original recipe, but variations could be good as well. Not as sweet as I thought it would be, which is fine. I just was excited to start trying the primal eating plan. Thanks for sharing in sparkpeople! - 8/17/10
