  1. Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl until they reach stiff peaks. Put the coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, egg yolks, milk, 1 tsp maple syrup and a pinch of salt in a bowl and whisk to a smooth batter. Carefully fold in the egg whites, trying to keep in as much air in as possible.

  2. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add tablespoons of the batter at a time to create small pancakes. Cook for 1-2 mins until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds. Repeat with the remaining batter.

  3. Meanwhile, microwave the berries and remaining syrup for 2 mins, stirring halfway, to make a compote. Serve with the pancakes.

These are so bad. Do not waste your time! The texture is bizarre, it’s stuck to two different non stick pans and now I have no breakfast and two pans to try and clean - thanks very much

These pancakes are so horrendously bad, I went to the trouble of setting up a BBC Good Food account just so that I could warn others off the process. This is less a pancake and more a semi-sweetened scrambled egg with an even worse texture. There are plenty of excellent GF pancake recipes out there. Give this one a wide berth.

Tried these with almond milk but just turn out like scrambled eggs in the pan and I had to bin the lot. Shame
