Quick & Healthy Pancakes for One (GF)

First off, I cannot take credit for this simple, delicious pancake recipe! I made a similar pancake recipe years ago, but never quite perfected it. I read about this recipe from Kelsey and decided to give it a try. I was blown away! It is super fluffy, dense, and satiating. I love that you can modify the base recipe. For example, I’ve tried adding in a tablespoon of pumpkin puree and cinnamon or adding in cocoa powder for chocolate pancakes with great results.


  • 5g psyllium husk
  • 5g coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • sweetener, to taste
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 140g egg whites


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl and whisk thoroughly. The batter will seem a little too thin at this stage!
  2. Let mixture sit to thicken for 10 minutes or more.
  3. Heat up a greased medium size skillet on medium-high heat.
  4. Pour thickened batter into skillet and go ahead and drop in any fun add-ins (blueberries or chocolate chips are my go-tos).
  5. Let cook on one side until the edges start to pull away from the pan (3-4 minutes).
  6. Flip pancake over and let cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  7. Remove from pan, add fun toppings, and enjoy!
