  • 30 grams coconut flour approximately 60 ml or 1/4 cup
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • 7.5 ml baking powder approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • 1 ml salt
  • 1 gram stevia
  • 5 ml vanilla extract with seeds
  • 15 ml coconut oil / clarified butter approximately 1 tablespoon


  • 250 ml mixed berries
  • 125 ml mascarpone

  • Whisk the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs then add the coconut milk, stevia and vanilla.
  • Whisk the flours into the egg mixture until there are no lumps.
  • Refrigerate at least 20 minutes or overnight, then remove from refrigerator 10 minutes before cooking.
  • When ready to cook, heat a pan on medium heat and add a little coconut oil or clarified butter. For lighter pancakes use coconut oil instead of clarified butter for cooking.
  • Use a 50ml ice cream scoop to add the mixture to the pan and spread to a circle. For smaller pancakes use a 20 ml scoop.
  • When the bubbles break on the surface flip the pancakes and cook until light brown.
  • For the mascarpone cream mix the mascarpone and greek yogurt until smooth.
  • Spread on the pancakes and top with berries and honey.


NB: This pancake batter may be rested for minimum 20 minutes before cooking, but is best left to rest in the refrigerator overnight.
