Coconut Flour Oven Pancakes

Lynn started blogging at Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures in 2008 to share her love of cooking and baking with others. In the fall of 2009, she was diagnosed with gluten intolerance and her kitchen has not been the same.  In 2010, she added a special section to her site to share special recipes, tips, and ideas for the gluten free life.

When I think of coconut flour for some reason I always think breakfast foods, muffins, pancakes, waffles etc. So, I often find myself trying coconut flour in my breakfast type recipes.

My family loves oven pancakes, the kind that are German pancake like, and that bubble up when baked. They are also known as Dutch Babies.

We love oven pancakes so much that I recently adapted the recipe with coconut flour to make it gluten free and we loved the results. When made with coconut flour, the oven pancake is not quite as light and fluffy, but it is so good and it makes a perfect gluten free breakfast.

Coconut Flour Oven Pancakes

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a bowl whisk together eggs, coconut flour, salt, and milk until well blended.

Pour into a 9" x 13" pan and bake for 7 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake 11-13 more minutes, or until the pancake puffs up in multiple spots.

Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

Note: The pancake comes out of the oven bubbled up, but as it cools it will fall and flatten out.

    Thank you for another great recipe! I can't wait to try it! I use Bob's Red Mill Pancake Mix for pancakes made with vanilla and blueberries. Can't wait to try coconut flour...I haven't used it before.

    This recipe was not enough for a 9x13 pan...they are paper thin. Did I do something wrong or is the recipe incorrect? I think it'd be better in a 8x8 or 9x9.

      Hi Jill,

      It looks like she used a 9 x 13 pan. I'm sorry that it didn't work out correctly for you. I'll check with her to be sure and report back.

      I am sorry that you had trouble with it. It is a thinner pancake. More like a dutch baby type pancake, so it is thinner than a regular pancake. If you liked the flavor though, you could easily make it in a smaller pan. An 8x8 or 9x9 pan would work fine.

    I would say definitely make this in a 8x8 pan. Also- I only used 1/4 tsp of salt and it was way too salty. I usually do not put salt in my puff pancakes and I wouldn't in this one either. You can add 1/2 tsp vanilla and that is good! We always eat ours with yogurt or sour cream sprinkled generously with brown sugar. Sounds weird but try it!!! Sooo good.

    Turned out horrible. Basically cooked eggs with some grainy bits.

    I subbed half n half. I also cubed 2Tbs. Butter and melted in 9 x 13 pan. It was still dry. Next time I’ll soften 2 oz. softened cream cheese. I also whisked eggs & half n half separately plus sifted (using a whisk) coconut flour, baking powd, and salt. Then whisked dry ingredients into wet.
