  • 1 ½ cups cassava flour (such as Anthony’s or Bob’s Red Mill)
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cup unsweetened, unflavored coconut milk (in a carton, not canned)
  • ½ cup regular olive oil (not extra-virgin)
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl whisk together cassava flour, brown rice flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl beat eggs with a whisk. Whisk in coconut milk, oil, vinegar, syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Whisk until well combined. Batter will be thin; it will thicken as it stands.
  • Preheat a cast iron or nonstick griddle. Lightly oil griddle with regular olive oil. Using about ¼ cup batter per pancake, pour batter onto preheated griddle, leaving about 2 inches between each pancake.
  • Allow pancakes took cook until edges are nearly set, bottoms are lightly browned, and you can easily lift pancakes off the griddle using a pancake turner. Flip pancakes; cook until bottoms are lightly browned.


If you prefer waffles, you can use this batter to make waffles (both Belgian style and thin, crisp style).
Yield: about 15 (4-inch) pancakes or 4 ½ (7-inch) Belgian waffles
