Coconut Chia Protein Pancakes Recipe

By Dr. Josh Axe

January 31, 2023

Pancakes are a great weekend treat, but usually the emphasis is on "treat" because they tend to be carb-heavy, sugar-loaded and protein bankrupt. Not these pancakes!

Each serving of these coconut chia protein pancakes delivers 29 grams of protein, next to 26 grams of carbohydrates and 18 grams of healthy fats. Just 3 grams of sugar per serving next to an impressive 8 grams of fiber. The Bone Broth Protein powder literally helps turn these pancakes into the perfect macronutrient breakfast.

Try these easy coconut protein pancakes recipe for a new way to add chia and protein to your diet.

Key Ingredients

Bone Broth Protein Vanilla is a nourishing, concentrated bone broth that is more potent than homemade broth, and the vanilla flavor is very convincing and works well in the pancakes. Plus it makes it easy to get healthy gut, joint and inflammation support.

Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats and free from wheat and other grains. It is also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories. Plus, this flour has a low score on the glycemic index.

Chia seeds were originally cultivated by the Aztecs and valued for their nutritional properties. Today they are sought after for their high content of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and numerous vitamins and minerals.

How to Make Coconut Chia Pancakes

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. This recipe is best when using a Paleo flour blend rather than simply a gluten-free flour. You can buy online or in a store. You can also make it on your own.

Here's a good DIY Paleo flour recipe: 1½ cups almond flour, 1 cup arrowroot flour, 1 cup coconut flour and ½ cup tapioca flour. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Put in an airtight container and store in a dry place.

Next, add wet ingredients and stir together.

Heat a pancake griddle at medium heat and coat with some coconut oil. Pour two tablespoons of batter to form each pancake.

Cook for a few minutes. Once it starts to bubble on top, flip and cook an additional minute or two.
