$17.

That is how much I spent on 3 different types of yogurt.

Why?

Because the infamous low carb FLUFFY pancakes just got fluffier.

Ever since I first shared these healthy low carb vanilla pancakes, they’ve been a popular breakfast choice amongst man of you however at times, there has been one slight dilemma- Some have had trouble getting them to be super fluffy. While I try to be as descriptive and specific with my instructions, I sometimes forget to provide troubleshooting advice or proper directions, especially in recipes with options.

So let’s talk reiterate the cooking process properly before we rant about the price of yogurt and variety used.

So the cooking process first-

I feel like a broken record, but the key here is patience. While there are some pancake recipes which literally take minutes from prep to plate, any of these fluffy low carb ones take a little longer…but it’s totally worth it. Heat up your frying pan on medium heat and then once hot, you turn it down to low heat. Only then do you start putting the pancakes on top. Because the heat is now on low, you’ll need to wait until the bubbles start appearing on the edges, which is the sign they can be flipped. Once flipped, you allow the pancakes to continue cooking, and you’ll start to see some amazing thick and fluffy action happening. Around the 2 minute mark, the pancakes should be done. 

Repeat the process until all are cooked and you’ll be rewarded with a thick and fluffy stack of low carb pancakes every single time

Is it more time consuming? Yes. 

However, you get this MASSIVE healthy stack of pancakes which just so happen to be ridiculously low carb too (thanks to the high fiber/low carb coconut flour and use of egg whites). This means you totally get the green card to go crazy on the carb-heavy toppings, if that’s what you choose. 

Or in a sandwich.

Or with a side of sugar.

Or as it is. 

They are THAT good.

Anyway, let’s discuss the $17 cost of those yogurts.

For the low carb vanilla pancakes and the low carb chocolate chip pancake recipes, there is a need for either applesauce or mashed pumpkin to give them a tiny bit of moisture and aid the texture. However, there was ONE other option which I hadn’t tried…until now. Reader Amy (Hi!) emailed to say she didn’t have either of those on hand but had used a dairy free yogurt blend instead and it worked well for her. I’d previously made pancakes with Greek yogurt before so wanted to see how it would fare with coconut yogurt and soy yogurt too, so bought a TINY container of both….which came to $17 (along with a plain Greek one too). 

So let’s throw that into the mix too- You can use applesauce, mashed pumpkin/starch OR your yogurt of choice. Now that we have that sorted, these double chocolate pancakes have your name on them!

These healthy low carb double chocolate pancakes are thick, fluffy and have the most amazing texture ever, aided by the double dose of chocolate throughout! Unlike traditional pancakes made of white flour, sugar and butter, these are based off coconut flour, egg whites (or egg replacement, if you go the vegan route!) and a few little extras which also make them incredibly low in calories- Perfect to get FANCY with the toppings! These fluffy pancakes are also suitable for those following a paleo, gluten free, grain free and dairy free lifestyle, and come with a tested vegan option, thanks to this amazing egg replacement option.

HACK! The infamous cocoa powder debate- Long term readers know I’m a huge fan of this dark cocoa powder but I found with these specific pancakes, the non-Dutch processed kind worked out much better and had a fluffier texture! If you have the option, go the latter one. Also, as mentioned in the previous pancake post, I prefer using the mini chocolate chips over these chocolate chips and these chocolate chunks, as they tend not to clump up and distribute more evenly. Saying that, to each their own, just DON’T omit!

Ingredients
  1. 3 T coconut flour
  2. 1 T granulated sweetener of choice*
  3. 1 T cocoa powder
  4. Pinch baking powder
  5. Pinch sea salt
  6. 3 large egg whites (for vegan option, use 1 T + 1 tsp Ener-G egg replacer + 1/3 cup water)
  7. 1 T applesauce OR mashed pumpkin OR yogurt of choice
  8. 1/2 cup + dairy free milk**
  9. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  10. 1 T dairy free mini chips***
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift the coconut flour, granulated sweetener of choice, cocoa powder, sea salt and baking powder to avoid clumps. Mix well to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg whites or ener-G egg with the vanilla extract. Add to the dry mixture, along with the applesauce or yogurt. Using a tablespoon at a time, add dairy free milk until a thick pancake batter is formed. Stir through the chocolate chips, but do not over mix. Allow to sit temporarily. If batter becomes too thick, add a dash more milk.
  3. Spray a pan with cooking spray and heat on low/medium. Once pan is extremely hot, pour batter using a 1/4 cup at a time. Cook pancakes for 2 1/2- 3 minutes or until the edges just start to bubble, before flipping and cooking for an extra 2 minutes or so. Repeat until all the pancakes are cooked.
  4. Stack, top and dig in!
Notes
  1. * For sweeter pancakes, add an extra tablespoon
  2. ** Depending on the brand of coconut flour, you'll most likely need more.
  3. *** Adjust accordingly- If carbs are not an issue or you want more chocolate, add more.

  1. I wish I was more patient. Maybe my pancakes would turn out better then. Also I always have the problem that as long as I have the pancakes in the pan they are thick and fluffy and as soon as I remove them from the heat they deflate. Anyways I will give these a shot. Practicing my patience 😉

    Yoghurt is okay-ish here but I just payed 15 Euros for a bottle of vanilla essence by accident.

  2. I learned to be patient when I started making nut butters. They take a while but are totally worth it! Pancakes though…I am more of a waffle person because you just press the button and you don’t have to flip anything and after like 8 minutes they’re done. I’ve had too many pancake fails in that department lol

  3. Well this is good timing! I literally just told Laura this morning that we should go out for pancakes today. She said she’d rather not since we’d already had breakfast. But I’m thinking a big stack of these fluffmonsters could be appropriate for lunch, no? 🙂

  4. You’re talking to the queen of impatience here. To allay my impatience I have to be working on something else! Ugh, I’m such a multitasker. These pancakes do look super amazing, and I guess that I’ll just have to listen to music or read something online while I wait for goodness to cook…

  5. Thank you for reminding me of Applesauce. I need to call Mom and making her bring me a couple of mason jars full of it. I mean, you know. Moms.
    Also, I want Pancakes! I will have to prep them, cause I am ALWAYS too lazy to get up earlier and make a stack. AND they need to be fluffy!

  6. Only 3 Tablespoons of coconut flour for this whole recipe? Is that correct and this makes about 6 pancakes as pictured?

  7. New reader! Can’t wait to try these.
    Quick question…. I need to sub oat flour for the coconut flour (bc I want these for breakfast tomorrow and don’t have coconut flour) ….would I use the same amount of oat flour or more?

      1. I this something that you would consider doing with your recipes? would be so nice to have. Just chose your most recommended ingredients to do so? even know there are variations? thanks for any comment. just a great service to add.

        1. Hi Lonna! I tried doing that with a few recipes but it created too much conflict. Luckily, there are many calorie calculators online, so if people need this info, they can easily work it out for themselves 🙂 Enjoy!

  8. Hey, these do look amazing. However I’m confused: you state they’re totally sugar-free and yet granulated sweetener is one of the ingredients. Does the sugar-free only apply if you use a sugar substitute, then?

  9. I need help! Maybe I’m not beating the egg whites engough? But mine don’t come out fluffy at all. They stay flat in the pan and I have trouble flipping them. I only need to add 1/4 cup of the milk because it doesn’t take much to make the batter thinner. The flavor is there (and good) but mine don’t look anything like your picture 🙁

    1. Hi Shirley- Don’t beat the egg whites much- It doesn’t need too much beating o get the fluffy texture! You need to let the batter sit for a little bit to thicken up which in itself, should be EXTREMELY thick (spoonable batter!).

  10. Do you think you could add some protein powder to these without getting a gritty texture? Would I need to change up ratios? Just wondering if you’ve tried before potentially ruining a batch!

    1. Hi Dee Bee! Unfortunately, I haven’t tired this with protein powder so am unsure how the final result will turn out. Please let me know if you do, I’m curious to see how it will work! 🙂

  11. I’m a bit confused on the recipe. T? Tablespoon, Teaspoon? For the flour? That does not seem like enough to make the pancakes…
