Organic and healthy pancakes to enjoy

With these gluten-free coconut pancakes, breakfast never tasted so good... or healthy!

Organic and healthy pancakes to enjoyOne of our favorite food finds is Bob's Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour, a mildly flavored gluten-free flour that is high in protein and fiber. You can replace up to 20 percent of the flour called for in a recipe with coconut flour, adding an equivalent amount of liquid to the mix. Top these coconut flour pancakes with toasted coconut flakes, banana slices and shaved dark chocolate.
