    Please tell us: by "tablespoon", do you mean the standard American measuring tablespoon? The English tablespoon is much larger, being serving spoon size. Clarification would help with all your delicious-looking recipes.

    Hi!

    We use American measuring. (1 US Tablespoon is 0,83 Eng Tablespoon).

    Please could you state on recipes when butter is stated on the recipe whether the butter is salted or unsalted as some recipes come out quite salty. As an example the bulletproof coffee should be made with unsalted butter, but it is not stated on the recipe.

    Make these in a cupcake tin with one frozen raspberry in the centre

    Very easy to make, but quite tasteless. And I say this as someone who loves both eggs and coconut flour.
    :(

    I would always use unsalted butter if it doesn't state salted. Especially in baking.
  9. Marilyn
    Love these! Full of flavor, in my opinion.

    Hello. Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour? if yes amount is the same? thank you
  11. TerriLH
    I'd like to see substitutions offered for baking powder in these recipes, as it contains corn starch and I can't have corn.

    I am also wondering about almond flour. I think it would work fine. Too much coconut in my diet gives me a histamine reaction for some reason (itchy throat, ears, skin, runny nose... generally unpleasant, unfortunately!)

    There is a lot of recipes here that uses Coconut flour, but not everybody likes the taste.
    Is it possible to use Soy flour instead?

    Really good English muffins. If you add more salt, the taste turns out to be good. Can be eaten with berries or served with herbal tea

    also good if you add about 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon

    These are a great substitute for dropped scones aka Scotch pancakes.

    First the good news, they were pretty good and simple to make, however the bad news, I had a stomachache within minutes and am still not feeling well a few hours later.

    I make these on sundays and have for breakfast every morning. Just add a little butter and some homemade low carb jam...yummy

    I found these really easy to make. And for someone who is new to keto, I was super excited about these. Turns out they taste very little, which is fine considering the ingredients. My biggest issue with these were how dry they are. It felt like swallowing sand :(

    Does anyone how any ideas or suggestions on how to make them less dry? :)

    Maybe add some fat like cream, cream cheese, yogurt, or sour cream? May also be able to use less coconut flour (measuring dry ingredients by volume is so inexact) or extra egg?
  21. Linda
    Hi Raza, I totally agree to use more salt!

    I logged in the recipe to My Fitness Pal and it's showing net carbs as 4gm per serving. Can you please tell me why that's happening?

    Delicious! Followed the tips above by adding a spoonful of greek yoghurt to the batter and frying in plenty of butter. Once cooked, I dusted with cinnamon and served with a bit more greek yoghurt and a handful of berries... light and fluffy.. not dry and grainy at all. Lovely.

    Tasted really eggy and greasy. Very bland. Sorry don't like it

    I felt that mine came out like a coconut corn bread in texture and taste. I think they are a bit more like a pancake than an English muffin.

    I thought the original recipe was very eggy and coconut tasting. So, I substituted the coconut flour for soy flour (Bob's Red Mill organic whole ground) and even added an extra tbsp so it wouldn't be so have so much egg taste. It's MUCH better and even has less carbs (but more protein, since its soy). I'd say its more like a hardier pancake than english muffin, but really satisfied the craving for something bready. Great with cream cheese.

    Just made the pancakes, when cool had some raspberries and cream,
    DELICIOUS !!!! felt like I was eating a lovely cake. Bread buns in the oven now!.

    Mine turned green half way down? Over cooked egg or a muffin pan problem?
  29. Bobbi
    I made this and liked it. I could see where you could throw some add ins in as well. I found though that making it for three servings it was quite eggie. I also think that it could use more baking powder. I would like to see this rise enough that you could slice it and toast it.

    I thought these were very good. I love an english muffin with peanut butter and these absolutely fit the bill. Some have said they are dry, yes they are and so are english muffins. You have to put something on them. I am going to try toasting one tomorrow to see if I can get it to crunch. Additionally, mine rose up quite puffy enough so that I could slice through and make 2 halves. With the peanut butter I did not taste any egg or the coconut flour. I would likely add a little more salt next time to perk up the flavor a bit, they seemed a bit on the plain side of tasty to me. All in all, I absolutely will make them again and will likely try using this same mix with some tweaks for puffier silver dollar pancakes.

    It's because of the ingredients, when you import a recipe MFP just grabs a random list of ingredients. Go back through and specify your brands you will get a much more accurate carb count. For example on this recipe I imported it and it came back with 2 net carbs for me with generic ingredients. When I specified Bobs Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour and Rumford reduced sodium aluminum free baking powder and swapped the 3 tbs of butter (for frying) with 1 tbs Nutriva butter flavor coconut oil, it dropped from 197 calories and 4 g carbs 2 g fiber to 111 calories, 3 carbs and 2 g fiber.

    I added an extra pinch of salt and some Lakanto monk fruit sweetener. Tasted just like Hawaiian coconut pancakes!
