Coconut Flour Pancakes

I woke up and was inspired to make pancakes.  I don’t know why because I’m not a HUGEE pancake person, but I just had a craving for pancakes.  So, I pulled out my coconut flour (what else), and there was a recipe for pancakes on the back!  How convienient.  This recipe is adapted from the recipe on the back of my Bob’s Red Mill coconut flour.  I didn’t change too many things, because like I said I did have a craving for pancakes, so I didn’t want to risk them coming out gross.

Well, I’ll tell you, they were far from gross!  They came out fluffy, lightly sweetened, and delicious.
