  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour or arrowroot powder, optional
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/8-1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • nut butter, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, etc., for topping


  1. In a bowl whisk together coconut and tapioca flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt until combined.

  2. In a separate bowl mix together eggs, ⅛ cup coconut milk, coconut oil, and maple syrup. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until fully combined.

  3. Let batter rest for 5 minutes. It should be quite thick (like brownie batter), but if it gets too dry and clumpy, add more coconut milk 
(1 tablespoon at a time) to create the right consistency.

  4. Heat a pan or griddle to medium-low and grease lightly with oil. Drop 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake onto the pan or griddle and spread it out a little. If desired, you can sprinkle a few chocolate chip between the 2 tablespoons of batter.

  5. Cook pancakes for about 3 minutes on one side, then flip carefully. Cook the other side for 2 more minutes. Keep a close eye on the pancakes to keep from burning.

  6. Serve the pancakes while hot with your favorite toppings.
