Coconut Flour Pancakes for a Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Lifestyle

A few years ago, my doctor recommended that I quit eating sugar and flour. I didn't think it would be too difficult, as I don't have much of a sweet tooth to begin with, but after a few weeks reading all the labels on all the foods in the store, I realized this change was going to be a challenge. Fortunately, I like cooking from scratch, and I like saving money. I no longer buy any foods from any aisle in my grocery store and now shop only from the fresh produce, dairy, and meat counters.

I originally developed these pancakes to accommodate my gluten-free, sugar-free diet. They are as versatile as traditional pancakes and can be dressed up or down as the meal requires. My favorite is to serve them with a pineapple, coconut, macadamia nut relish, but they're just as good served traditionally with butter and syrup (agave nectar is a great syrup).

This meal isn't a "diet" meal, but it shouldn't upset your blood sugar.

Thank you for posting this. We're looking at a GF lifestyle for my son since he's got issues with ADHD. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I love doing coconut flour pancakes! I havent viewed your recipe yet but just wanted to let you know that agave nectar is worse for you than sugar and as bad as high fructose corn syrup. If you'd like to look into it Dr Mercola has info on his website! Best healthy cooking wishes:)
