Coconut products are a staple in the paleo diet, and coconut flour is no exception. It also happens to make fabulous high-protein, grain-free pancakes, but it does take some finesse and knowledge of how to work with coconut flour. These paleo coconut flour pancake recipes will walk you right through the process, with awesome flavors like pina colada, berry, pumpkin, and more. Make sure you’re stocked with other pancake basics like eggs, non-dairy milk, baking soda, and sea salt. Of course, you’ll need maple syrup, too!
