Two of my sons and I are gluten free. I’ve made these twice now and my six year old informed me this morning that “these are the best-est panny-cakes EVER!” Thanks:)

Jessica, So glad you and your boys enjoyed the pancakes. I have the biggest smile on my face right now – thanks for letting me know. :)

hi – quick questions – why do you separate the eggs? do you add the whites to the mixture as well (i’m assuming so), and if so, when? thanks. :)

Heather, I separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff white peaks form. I then fold them back into the batter before cooking. It makes for super fluffy pancakes!

I’ve never used seltzer water. What do I add to the water to make it seltzer?

Kristina, Seltzer water is carbonated, and it can be found at any grocery store.

I was so excited to try these and I made them this morning and the consistency was so thick and crumbly I threw them out :(
I must have done something wrong but I am not sure what. When should I have added the egg whites to the batter? That is the only thing I think I might have done wrong.

Stephanie,
Let’s see, been a while since I’ve made them, and I just read over this recipe. My directions aren’t very clear, are they? Sorry about that! I whisked all ingredients together, folding in the beaten egg whites last. Also, I’ve been told the brand of coconut flour can make a big difference. I’ve only ever used Bob’s Red Mill.

Stephanie,
OK, just update the recipe. I fold the egg whites into the batter right before adding the 1/4 cup seltzer water and then allow the batter to thicken before frying pancakes.

Thank you for responding so quickly. I am going to try them again, I could tell that cooked correctly they would taste good :)

These are AMAZING! I have tried some almond meal varients that tasted like cardboard. These are worthy of the name pancake and the extra step to beat the egg whites separately is definitely worth it!

Thanks for the feedback Tasha, and I’m so glad you enjoyed the pancakes, no cardboard included. ;)
