🥞 How to Make Coconut Pancakes

Here is what you will need to make these sheet-pan pancakes:

  • Oat flour – If you want the pancakes to be fully gluten-free, make sure you are using gluten-free oat flour.
  • Shredded coconut – For the coconutty flavor, use the fine and unsweetened kind.
  • Coconut sugar – I went with coconut sugar to keep the pancakes on the healthier side. However, any granulated sugar will work.
  • Baking powder and baking soda – Both help the pancakes rise a little bit.
  • Almond milk – Preferably unsweetened. You can use any plant-based milk.
  • Applesauce – Applesauce brings a ton of moisture and a little bit more sweetness to the pancakes.
  • Oil – For richness, it prevents the pancakes from being dry.
  • Flax egg – Because you don’t want crumbly pancakes! One flax egg is enough to help the pancakes hold together.
  • Chocolate chips – The addition of chocolate chips adds sweetness and balances so well with the coconut flavor! Do not omit!
  • Vanilla extract – Optional, but highly recommended! Use good quality vanilla extract for the best flavor.

Preparing these coconut pancakes takes less than 20 minutes! The best thing about this recipe is that there is no flipping needed, which means you can take your time to prepare your morning coffee or tea while the pancakes are baking! How cool is that!?

Start by whisking together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Next, add the almond milk, applesauce, oil, flax egg, and vanilla extract, and stir until fully combined.

🥚 How to Make a Flax Egg

A flax egg is an egg replacement that acts as a binder. To make a flax egg: simply whisk 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Once the batter is ready, spread it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You want to spread the batter into a 1/3-inch thickness if you want thin pancakes. Personally, I spread the batter into a 15×11-inch rectangle.

After 15-18 minutes in the oven, your pancakes should be golden brown and ready to be sliced into rectangles!

To serve, top with more shredded coconut and drizzle with maple syrup! You can also serve these topped with your favorite fruits. I’m thinking of sliced bananas, blueberries, or raspberries!

I hope you will love these sheet-pan coconut pancakes. They are perfectly moist, nutty, tender, healthy, and SO GOOD!
