Coconut Flour Flax Pancakes


  • 3 eggs
  • 12 grams of flax seed meal (2 TBSP)
  • 28 grams of coconut flour (4 TBSP)
  • 1/4 & 1/4+ cups seltzer water
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla or a few drops of almond extract
  • hefty shake of cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • sweetener to taste


Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff white peaks form. Set aside

Whisk 2 of the egg yolks (feed 3rd to dog staring up at you with begging loving eyes) together with remaining ingredients except the seltzer water.

Stir in 1/4 of seltzer water and allow your batter to set for about 10 to 15 minutes while warming your pancake griddle over low heat.

Your batter will thicken. When your ready to fry your pancakes slowly drizzle in remaining seltzer water until your batter is pourable but not runny.

Fry pancakes over low heat.

    Two of my sons and I are gluten free. I’ve made these twice now and my six year old informed me this morning that “these are the best-est panny-cakes EVER!” Thanks:)

    Jessica, So glad you and your boys enjoyed the pancakes. I have the biggest smile on my face right now – thanks for letting me know. 🙂

    hi – quick questions – why do you separate the eggs? do you add the whites to the mixture as well (i’m assuming so), and if so, when? thanks. 🙂

    Heather, I separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff white peaks form. I then fold them back into the batter before cooking. It makes for super fluffy pancakes!

    I’ve never used seltzer water. What do I add to the water to make it seltzer?

    Kristina, Seltzer water is carbonated, and it can be found at any grocery store.
