Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk or cows milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Assemble, prepare, and measure ingredients. Melt coconut oil (or butter) and cool to room temperature. Whisk eggs vigorously until fully combined.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir melted coconut oil (or butter), milk, and vanilla into beaten eggs. Sift in flour and baking soda. Add a pinch of salt. If batter seems too thick, add some more milk, about 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat until a droplet of water hisses and dances on the surface. Heat about 1 teaspoon coconut oil or butter in the pan. Ladle in three little pancakes, each no larger than 3 inches/7.5 cm in diameter or they will break when you flip them.
  • Watch them closely. They will brown and start to smell ready after 2–3 minutes. Flip them carefully and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Serve right away, preferably with berries and cream over top.
