Combine the rest of the ingredients in a second bowl. Slowly add half of this wet mix into the dry ingredients and stir continuously. Add the remainder of the wet ingredients little by little to avoid a runny batter, mixing well after each addition.

Add a little coconut oil to a griddle or pan and melt over a medium heat.Pour around 1/4 cup each of batter into the pan and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until bubbles begin to form on the surface. Flip and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes.

Repeat with the remaining batter.
