Special gluten free chocolate chip pancakes.   They are grain free and made with coconut flour.



  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup of organic unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil plus 1 teaspoon for pan
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips or semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, applesauce, coconut oil and apple cider vinegar.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut flour and baking soda. Add to egg mixture and whisk together until batter is smooth.
  3. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Heat a non-stick ceramic crepe pan to low heat. Rub pan with teaspoon of coconut oil. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop batter into center of crepe pan and cover with a lid. Heat for 1 1/2-2 minutes or until top of pancake is starting to steam through.
  5. Remove lid, flip pancake and cook uncovered for about 30-45 seconds.
  6. Repeat with remaining batter. You will get 11-12 pancakes, depending on size of eggs. Serve with butter, maple syrup and fresh fruit.


Covering the pancakes eliminates splattering while flipping because the top of the pancake slightly cooks.
