Low carb and high protein extra fluffy pancakes which need NO protein powder and packed with chocolate chips! These super fluffy low carb chocolate chip pancakes are naturally gluten free, grain free, paleo, dairy free and come with a tested vegan option!
- 3 T coconut flour
- 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice
- Pinch baking powder
- Pinch sea salt
- 3 large egg whites (for vegan option, use 1 T + 1 tsp Ener-G egg replacer + 1/3 cup water)
- 1 T mashed starch of choice (I've tried pumpkin, applesauce and even mashed sweet potato)
- 1/2 cup + dairy free milk*
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 T dairy free mini chips**
- In a large mixing bowl, sift the coconut flour, granulated sweetener of choice, sea salt and baking powder to avoid clumps. Mix well to combine.
- In a small bowl, whisk the egg whites or ener-G egg with the vanilla extract. Add to the dry mixture, along with the mashed starch of choice. Using a tablespoon at a time, add dairy free milk until a VERY thick pancake batter is formed- Not like a traditional silky batter. Mix lightly, adding the chocolate chips. but do not over mix. Allow to sit to thicken slightly- This is very important. The pancake batter may look thin at first but it needs time for the coconut flour to absorb the liquid
- Spray a pan with cooking spray and heat on low/medium. Once pan is extremely hot, pour batter using a 1/4 cup at a time- It should be extremely thick. Cook pancakes for 1 1/2 minutes or until the edges just start to bubble (it's best to cover the pan!) before flipping and cooking for an extra minute. Repeat until all the pancakes are cooked.
* Depending on the brand of coconut flour, you'll most likely need more.
** Adjust accordingly- If carbs are not an issue or you want more chocolate, add more.
You shouldn't need to beat the egg whites- If anything, you should let the batter sit slightly to allow the coconut flour to absorb some of the mixture before cooking.
