Gluten Free Pancakes Smothered In Strawberry Cream Cheese Sauce
Gluten free pancakes are fun for me to experiment with. I’ve done banana pancakes, protein pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, almond flour pancakes, but my favorite gluten free pancakes are the ones that use coconut flour.
If you haven’t tried coconut flour before, give it a try. It’s high in fiber and makes fluffy mug cakes, scones and I have seen a pizza crust recipe or two on Pinterest. I buy mine from Vitacost (if you use that link we each get a $10 coupon) another place to check (for my fellow Canadians) is Well.ca.
The yogurt sauce is made from strawberry greek yogurt and cream cheese. I originally planned to make this as a filling for the Valentine’s Day Chocolate Shot Glasses, but I added too much yogurt and wasn’t able to make it into the consistency I wanted (well, without added a ton of sugar anyway).
That’s another thing, I didn’t add any sugar. The yogurt I used was really sweet so I didn’t think it was necessary but taste yours and go by your liking. You could sweeten it with maple syrup, honey, sugar or some stevia.
Yummy yummy yummy I’ve got love in my tummy
Gluten Free Pancakes Smothered In a Strawberry Yogurt Cream Cheese Sauce
I used the pancake base from my recipe from Carrot Cake Pancakes (also see the recipe for the 3 Berry Chia Jam there too). It uses coconut flour, which is a flour that I love! It’s so soft and fluffy.

They look great! I love how you decorated them with those little hearts for Valentines Day.
Thank you Cascia 🙂
It’s great to know that well.ca sells coconut flour, I haven’t bought any in such along time because I didn’t want to pay the Whole Foods price tag.
I usually get mine from Vitacost, but since the Canadian dollar has hit such a low I think Well will be around the same price.
Is it really only 1/4 cup of flour? That doesn’t seem like much. Also was wondering what service you use that places the ads on your site? The ones that appear within the blog posts. I see this on a lot of blogs now. Thanks
Yup only 1/4 cup. Coconut flour is really fluffy and this was just a single serving (well…me and a toddler).
I am with The Blogger Network for those ads 🙂
