Berry Skillet Pancake (Grain Free, Paleo)


I like to call this skillet pancake recipe, the Lazy Man’s (or Woman’s) Pancake recipe because you just have to make 1 pancake. Why slave over a hot stovetop making a bunch of pancakes when you can get the job done with one giant pancake?!

You know me, I like my recipes quick, easy and healthy and this berry skillet pancake recipe fits the bill.


Just whip up a few ingredients, pour it into a hot skillet, pop it into the oven and out comes a super fluffy, golden giant pancake that is absolutely delish! You can add a dollop of butter or a drizzle of maple syrup to the finished product, but I promise you, it doesn’t even need it. It’s so good all on it’s own!

Eat it for breakfast or slice it up, add a dollop of whipped coconut cream and serve it for an easy dessert. And use any berries you have on hand – fresh OR frozen!  Enjoy!

Berry Skillet Pancake Recipe (Grain Free, Paleo) from Primally Inspired
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk (I use THIS)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup or other sweetener of choice
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour (find HERE)
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot or tapioca flour/starch (I use THIS)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup berries of choice (fresh OR frozen!)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, ghee or coconut oil
  1. Turn oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Put 2 tablespoons of butter (or ghee or coconut oil) in a 9-10" skillet and place the skillet in the oven while you whip up the batter.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, coconut milk, maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla until well mixed.
  4. Add in the coconut flour, arrowroot or tapioca starch, baking soda, cinnamon and sea salt and stir until smooth.
  5. Once your oven is preheated, take the skillet out of the oven (your butter or oil should be completely melted and the skillet should be hot) and add the batter to the skillet.
  6. Place the berries all over the batter.
  7. Put the skillet back in the oven for 25 minutes or until the top is golden. Enjoy!
Use any berries or any combination of berries you like! Fresh or frozen will work just fine.
Adding ¼ cup of chocolate chips (I use THESE) with the berries makes a fun and especially yummy treat, too 🙂

    This looks like an excellent breakfast idea, but I was wondering does one put in baking soda or baking powder? I am definitely going to try this. Trying the Loaded Mexican Nachos tonight. 🙂

    SO HAPPY to find a Paleo recipe that uses coconut flour instead of being nut or soy based. I have been wanting to try the Paleo diet but I have a ton of allergies, so I have avoided it. I will be making these very soon and I am so glad I found your site.

      So glad someone else appreciates coconut flour as much as me! Love the stuff 🙂 Thanks so much for reading, too!

      Search “AIP Paleo” recipes…especially on Pinterest. You’ll find a wider range of recipes free of allergens. Autoimmune recipes are free of nuts, eggs, and nightshades as well as the usual things excluded from Paleo recipes. Mickey Trescott is a great pinner to follow.

    I am assuming I could use a pie plate instead of skillet. Also the full fat coconut milk do you mix it together so you get the fat and the milk.

    Mmmmm….sounds amazing! I am on a constant hunt to find/create new recipes that are paleo/primal inspired, and I will be adding this one to the list. Sounds tasty, especially on a Sunday morning! Thanks for sharing- love your site!

    This looks like another winner that needs to be made this weekend! I love finding recipes that are all in one pan and can be left unattended 😉

    Can you taste the coconut milk and flour in this? I absolutely hate the taste of coconut and I can usually tell when something has it in it no matter how small. I have never had coconut milk or flour. I do like eating grain free. Thanks

    Will this recipe double okay? Would I need to change the cooking time or anything? I have a lot of kids with large appetites. 🙂

    i have two in the oven cooking and they smell amazing!! Can’t wait to have breakfast! Is it necessary to add more maple syrup or are the pancakes ready to go? Thanks for another great and easy recipe!

    Made this for my 18mo daughter and I this morning. Delicious. She might need a whole one for herself next time. Thank you Kelly.

    Just made these for breakfast. Mine were a little soggy on the bottom, not sure if the pan was hot enough. Flipped them over and put under a hot grill for a few minutes. Gave it a crispy top, served with blueberry/raspberry sauce. YUM! Even my husband ate them which is saying a lot. Although he did say whipped cram would go nicely with them. WILL be putting these on the breakfast rotation.

    This looks wonderful. But I don’t have a skillet. What size round dish should I use? Thanks for your amazing recipes.

    Can I make this stove top? or in a bread pan in the oven?

    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      I don’t see why not, Sarah! I know you can do a bread pan in the oven (it will take longer so you’ll just have to watch it until it’s golden brown on top and cooked in the middle). I’ve never tried it fully on the stove, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work 🙂
