There are several adaptations for Griddle Cakes put these are our standard version when we make them at home. I will tell you there is a big difference between using the unsweetened coconut flakes vs. using the sweetened flakes (you mostly find in grocery stores..at least in the area I live in.) If you are not offended by the sugar content in the sweetened flakes (5g/2 Tbsp) you wont need to use any additional sweeteners because it is plenty sweet on its own and you can most likely use less egg depending on how you like yours (more or less eggy). Makes a great dessert OR breakfast! If you are using the unsweetened flakes you will want to use a sweetener such as agave syrup or honey because unsweetened flakes are well….not sweet enough on their own to have the desired taste. If you dont want to add any sweetener at all…GO FOR IT 🙂
If you are looking for Paleo adaptations use the unsweetened flakes!
