      Hello, don’t these taste like coconut? We don’t like the taste of coconut in all or our baked goods.

        Hi Yoli,

        Coconut flour doesn’t have a marked coconut taste.

        And if you want to top the pancakes with coconut oil, or use coconut oil in general, just select “refined” (which has a neutral flavor) over “unrefined” or “virgin” (which taste coconut-y).

      Hi Erika,
      Thank you so much for the wonderful information you’ve generously shared. Now I’m wondering if you have a recipe for Crepes? Thank you.

        Hi Donna,

        I’ll put that on my list of upcoming experiments 🙂 Though, I will offer now that I have a sneaking suspicion this recipe might work for crepes if spread thin enough… If you get to this experimenting before I do, let me know how it worked out!
