Delicious and easy anti-inflammatory breakfast.  Gluten free.  Nut free. Crazy good.


  • 1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted (I use THIS brand)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder (like this)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup milk of any kind
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, ghee, or butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ( I use THIS one)
  • optional: 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup

ghee, butter, or coconut oil for cooking

fruit and maple syrup for topping


  1. Whisk together coconut flour, baking soda, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and pepper.  Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, applesauce, milk,melted fat of choice, vanilla and optional maple syrup.
  3. Pour wet into dry and mix until throughly combined.  The mixture will be a bit thicker than regular pancake mix.
  4. Heat skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat and grease liberally with fat of choice.  Add 1 heaping tablespoon for each pancake, using the back of the spoon to spread/smooth into a circle. Cook for 2-3 minutes (or until golden underneath), gently flip and cook another 2-3 minutes on other side, watching carefully as coconut flour can burn if heat is too high.
  5. Repeat with rest of batter, adding more fat of choice as needed. Recipe makes about 10-12 small pancakes. Top with whatever makes you happy. Enjoy!
