  • 1 egg (for vegan version, replace egg with 2 TBSP flax seed meal thickened in 1/4 cup water)
  • 1/8 cup seltzer water, plain water, or nut milk. (seltzer water adds fluff)
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • cinnamon
  • 2 egg whites* (omit if vegan)


  • Blend avocado, flour, egg, liquid, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until you achieve a thick pancake batter consistency.
  • Whip egg whites until stiff white peaks form and fold into batter.

  • Top withΒ coconut butter and more cinnamon.
  • *If omitting egg whites, you may need to add a bit more liquid.

Hi, thanks for this recipe! What variety of avocado do you use/what would be the approx. cup measurement for half an avocado? I’m using Florida avocadoes and don’t want to add to much.

Hi Julia,
I can’t remember what type of avocado I used for this recipe, but I would recommend about 1/3 cup avocado for the pancakes. Hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚

Heather, can you tell me please how many servings this recipe creates? Thanks!


HEAB June 4, 2013 at 7:14 am

Hi Jill,
One recipe yields about 10 silver dollar sized pancakes. So, 1 to 2 servings. They’re pretty light, and I would eat the entire batch myself, but for most people, probably enough to share. πŸ™‚

My sister made these for me and I put natural peanut butter and agave syrup on them YUM! Been telling people about them and some of them want the recipe.
Thanks for the great ideas.
