Coconut, Chia & Lime Pancakes (Coconut Flour)

A sweet gluten free pancake made with coconut flour and chia seeds. Full of fibre and nutritious.

I had made a savoury pancake with chia seeds, so needed to balance it with a sweet pancake.  I am a big fan of the flavour combinations of coconut and lime so threw these into the bowl.   Delicious!  This makes an amazing breakfast or could be a lovely dessert.   A tasty way to sneak some chia into your diet.  I can always distract the Chief Taster with coconut!

    I used this batter to make waffles, changing nothing in the recipe. They were utterly superb in every way! Thank you so much.

    I’ve made these several times, with varied success. I really like the flavor, and sometimes they turn out perfectly, but often they are fragile and fall apart. Also, with a full recipe, the time it takes to cook them gives the chia seeds time to swell, and the batter become extremely thick. Sometimes I thin it a bit as I go, but that can make the pancakes fall apart more. Do you have any suggestions or tips for this recipe? And just out of curiosity, why do you use baking soda instead of baking powder here?

      Hi Carolyn, what do you thin them out with? Perhaps some coconut milk would work better than water, as it is “thicker” than water in consistency. I used baking soda rather than powder as I find it gives a fluffy pancake. Glad you enjoy the flavours and thanks for popping by!

        I use coconut milk or almond milk, from a carton not a can. Do you use canned coconut milk? That would change the consistency.

        I made these again with canned coconut milk, being careful not to overfill the measuring cup with coconut flour, and adding the chia seeds last so they didn’t absorb too much liquid. I made them in a waffle iron because they cook faster and more evenly that way, I think. They were great. They are still fragile, but they didn’t crumble or need more liquid. I guess coconut flour is tricky, but these are worth putting into my regular breakfast rotation. Not only are they very tasty, they’re also quick to make in the blender, and one recipe makes enough for several breakfasts.

        I also like to sub 1 t lemon extract for 1 t of the vanilla extract to boost the citrus flavor. I want to try using ground chia seeds for my kids who are texture-averse.

        Thanks for the great recipe and for the tips to help me work it out!
