Pancakes Falling Apart

10 July 2012 - 09:19 PM

Wonder if anyone has any tips to keep my pancakes together?

I make a dairy / gluten free pancake. Its based off of a recipe I found, but I have tweaked it to my liking. However, a problem I have is that the pancakes crumble, and I am not able to keep them together like a traditional pancake. I use about 3 cups of almond flour (I make my own so it's pure), one can coconut milk, six eggs, cinnamon, and then about a cup of berries mixed in.

I used to make them with a pre-made almond flour that was not pure and had things like potato starch and rice parts in it, among other things. It stayed together fine and was gluten free, but I don't want all that other stuff in there, and think there must be a way to keep the ones together using just almond flour...but have yet to see it.

Also, I've tried low heat, high heat, covered, uncovered, cooking a really long time, cooking small portions at a time and cooking a huge one at once an this does not seem to make a difference. The pancakes will get done on the bottom, and when I flip them they fall apart. Adding in coconut flour makes matters worse.

Do you think more eggs? Something else? Input is appreciated. Thanks!
