I love pancakes, but they can be high in calories and carbs. This recipe uses coconut flour, egg whites and coconut milk. If you are on a low carb or Keto diet, you will love this recipe. I love serving with pure maple syrup and strawberries. You can top with any fresh fruit you like, or serve them with your favorite sugar free syrup. They are light and delicious.
