    Coconut pancakes - too dry

    Shop Now
    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.

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

    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!
