  1. Mix the egg, honey, and coconut in a [amazon_link id="B001715PN8" target="_blank" ]mixing bowl[/amazon_link] until you get a nice batter. If the batter is a little dry just add another egg and mix well
  2. Using a [amazon_link id="B000NBWRU2" target="_blank" ]frying pan[/amazon_link], heat a small amount of coconut oil over medium heat and cook your griddle cakes like you would a regular pancake. The smaller you made them the easier they are to flip.
  3. Serve with a fresh home made syrup of your choice or eat just like is.
  4. Enjoy

These griddle cakes are really dry by themselves if you over cook them so feel free to spice them up however you see Paleo fit.  I melted down frozen strawberries and blended them into a strawberry syrup.  Some other options for remaining paleo would be 100% pure maple syrup, ghee, or a melted 100% organic raw honey.  The choice is your’s, so enjoy this simple yet delicious recipe.

  1. I discovered this page yesterday in my search for creative breakfast ideas that would be more than bacon and eggs and it was a joy to get here: wonderful recipes, easy to make and no overly fancy ingredients. Thank you!
    First off I did try these coconut griddle cakes. Must say I love the fact that these are so super easy and quick to make, but can’t eat more than one – somehow too rich and nutty for my taste.

  2. What’s the best way to grind the shredded coconut? And could you use coconut flour instead? But I prefer to use shredded coconut since I’ve got bags and bags of the stuff.

  3. I made these this morning. I changed a few things after your note about dryness: I kept the coconut shredded (instead of grinding), mashed a banana, and added some cinnamon. I topped them with some local honey, strawberries, and sunflower seed butter – delicious!

  4. These were tasty, but following the recipe as you stated (even with the extra egg) only yielded a bowlful of powder. I had to add water and more honey, but they still didn’t seem to come out right. Do you have any suggestions?
