  • Coconut pancakes - too dry

    What can I add to my batter (coconut flour and eggs) to make it more moist? The pancakes are good, but too dry. I've tried coconut oil and coconut water. What else helps keep it moist?

    Coconut milk and butter. I use a ratio of 1 T coconut milk, 1 T butter to 1 egg and 1 T coconut flour. Also, let the batter sit for a few minutes to let the flour absorb the liquids.

          Yum. Putting this in the to-do list.
          Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

            I make mine with blueberries - the blueberries add sweetness and keep them moist. Yummy!

              Same here. I now prefer the recipe from The Primal Blueprint Cookbook.

                I haven't gotten arund to doing coconut pancakes but I made these: http://foodfloraandfelines.blogspot....-pancakes.html lemon zest almond pancakes and they turned out lovely and tasted very much like sponge cake, I added some water to the batter to keep them moist but serving them with a simple berry compote or other fruit or dollop of coconut cream helps a lot too.

                  I'm just going to chime in and agree... butter and coconut milk ... they pretty much make anything better... if you chill some coconut milk (so it thickens a little) it makes a nice topping too!

                      Do you melt the butter?

                        Yes, I melt the butter (I used butter because I'm loving the taste of Kerrygold), add the coconut milk to cool it, then add the eggs (so the eggs don't curdle). I prefer working with a batter that is about the same consistency as flour made pancake batter, perhaps thinner than some other recipes.

                            try less cooking time! coconut flour dries out when it cooks, so turn up the heat on the skillet so the outside cooks faster, keeping the inside moist. this has always been my secret to moist and crusty pancakes.. that and pouring on loads of butter... and bacon.
                            time for breakfast!
