Recipe Video: Coconut Pancakes

Coconut Pancakes

This past Sunday I finally dove into The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and made myself some Coconut Pancakes. I followed the recipe and added a little cacao powder. They came out great and I will be making these every Sunday for many weeks to come. Why every Sunday? Well, my parents have been making pancakes every Sunday for many years. They were of course whole wheat. But, I live by The Primal Blueprint and therefore only eat primal food!

So, I will be making coconut pancakes for a while. I LOVE pancakes and LOVE coconut! Throw on some berries and/or banana slices with a side of bacon and you have one hell of a breakfast!

Do you LOVE pancakes? Do you LOVE primal food? Or, maybe you want to jump on the primal bandwagon. Pick up your copy of The Primal Blueprint Cookbook today! If you already have one then buy another for a friend or family member as it makes for the perfect gift.

In order for you to get an inside peak at what the Coconut Pancakes are all about, I made an Awesome video for you… Enjoy! The song I chose goes PERFECT for the theme!! Well, almost… I just needed to add banana slices!

Leave a comment below after thinking about the following questions…

  • What are you favorite pancakes? Wheat, white, coconut, almond flour based ones?

  • Or, do you NOT like pancakes?

    I received my Primal Blueprint Cookbook today and, although there weren’t any new recipes in there that I hadn’t already tried, it’ll be great to send off to my Mum & Mum-In-Law, which is why I bought them. However, they already know all about primal pancakes, and they use the recipe I taught them last year. My Mum actually eats an almond pancake every morning! With yoghurt, cream and fruit! And her little bits of middle-age fat have melted away effortlessly. She’s 59 this year, and she has the same figure she had in high school. I’m so proud of her :)

    I used to be a bit fancier with my almond pancakes (as you can see here: but the way I taught my lovely relatives to do it is to mix 25g of almond flour with an egg. Heat some oil in a pan, plop in the pancake mix, jiggle the pan to settle and spread the mixture, and allow to cook. So easy!

    I find MDA’s coconut pancakes unnecessarily fancy (and sugary!) too – my recipe is just as simple as my almond one, plus extra coconut oil since the flour is so drying:

    Glad I found your blog, and kudos for making the video (though I cannot watch it at work). Eventually, no one will use horrible old grain flours for yummy Sunday pancakes, mwahahhaha! :D

      No new recipes at all? Really? How is that?

      I have never purchased almond flour – I guess I just enjoy coconut flour A LOT, lol. I feel as if the coconut pancakes from the cookbook are not to fancy and are not at all sugary. Plus you can skip the honey if you wish. I added just a couple drops. I always add less sugar then what any recipe calls for.

      Glad to hear about your mother! My spirits lift up whenever I hear about someone else who is living the primal lifestyle. Sooner than later there will be millions upon millions around the world living it ;)

      Just checked out your blog again. Of course your latest post is about salmon. I just had salmon on the grill last night! I will have to make it soon as I LOVE your recipe! Two of my favorite foods is salmon (maybe MahiMahi now) and coconut so I will be making it soon. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and I am glad you like my blog. Pass it around!

    I’ve made these pancakes before using almond flower. I’m going to try again this Sunday using coconut flour. I added shredded coconut to the batter and a handful of crumbled up pecans (set them in while one side is cooking). With a little bit of hunny these things are amazing.

      You mean almond *flour*? Lol…

      I have not tried them with almond flour… give coconut flour a shot! If you are a fan of cooconut then you will enjoy them a lot!

        You mean coconut? LOL…

        You want people to continue returning to your site you might not want to “rub in” the little mistakes they make. On the other side of that, I have to say sorry for you though, you have to take the criticism humbly. ;-)

      • Aunt Joanne says

        Yes, she meant FLOUR instead of FLOWER — and HONEY instead of HUNNY (you missed that one). Give it a break.

    Hey Toad,

    Those pancakes look awesome. I’ll have to try some soon! My son saw the picture of the pancakes on your blog and he asked, “Mom, are those healthy pancakes?” I said, “They sure are!”

    • says

      Ah, yes. I have her recipe too. I am sure they were wonderful – she makes up a lot of awesome recipes. I just need to try more of them out!

    Just discovered baking with almond flour. It’s so much more forgiving than coconut flour. I never have moist anything w/coconut flour. I’m going to try these pancakes though, they look great.

    • says

      Interesting… I have only used coconut flour with pancakes so I would have no idea, lol. Do give these a try – coconut flour with pancakes works great!

    • says

      I love to hear that. I have only made the coconut pancakes and have baked bacon, lol. I need to get going as I plan to make every recipe at some point :)

    Hey Toad,
    I’ve ordered my primal blueprint from Amazon and waiting on it with baited breath. :) These pancakes look great. You’re enthusiasm, and all the info on Mark’s site have really gotten me interested again. Looking forward to reading the book and getting with the program. :)

    These are sooooo good. I made them last weekend and my grandkids and boyfriend loved them. I made about 4 batches and froze them in a single layer between waxpaper. They freeze really well. I had the for breakfast three days in a row with pumpkin butter and bacon. I am so excited to find this recipe. The first batch I made I used coconut oil that has coconut flavor and I used almond extract instead of vanilla. Very yummy. I use expeller pressed coconut oil when I don’t want coconut taste in my recipe. They also don’t make me feel lethargic and bloaty like regular pancakes do. I would like to try making waffles with them.

    • says

      If you do make waffles with them, let me know how they turn out! I’m glad everyone liked them! It’s hard NOT to enjoy these coconut pancakes… full of flavor for sure!
