Uber Fiber Tropical Pancakes

This is actually my husband’s recipe. I not only have his permission but he insisted this be shared with other hungry hobbits. It makes a really tasty, dense, nutty pancake. This is not your fluffy pancake recipe. It is such a perfectly delightful filling breakfast for when you know you are going to have a full day ahead of you. This kept us so full that lunch was just a light snack really. Great before some good hiking I’d say!

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup flax flour (or just ground up flax seed)
  • 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tsp splenda
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup egg white (or egg white substitute)
  • 1 tbl vanilla, almond or coconut extract
  1. Blend the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl whip the egg whites until they form peaks.
  2. Add the milk and extract to the dry ingredients and stir. Fold in the egg whites.
  3. Drop the batter in the desired amounts onto a hot sprayed pan. Flip when the bottom is browned. When cooked through, serve!

This makes 8 pancakes typically. Each pancake is 81 calories, 2.4 grams of fat, and 1.7 grams of fiber. The topping in the picture is just pineapple cut into tidbits and mixed with a bit of plain fat free yogurt. Delicious! No need for syrup at all and you get one of those fruit servings in!

  1. We make a -lot- of pancakes in our house, and a housemate who is seriously into his pinapple to provide him with some of that which they call fruit (which is otherwise quite rare in his diet). 😛 I think these will be a great combination of the two that he enjoys, usually we stick to golden syrup and lemon/sugar, so it’ll be nice to go something a bit more healthier. Thanks for the recipe. Hope all is well. 🙂

  2. Awesome! That definitely does sound like a great match! I hope your housemate enjoys these as much as we have.
