  • Author: Jessi's Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 25
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 15 1x


  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 earl grey tea bags
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp crushed earl grey leaves (optional)
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp honey or maple
  • 2 earl grey tea bags
  • 1/2 cup blueberry


  1. Place the tea bags and milk on the stove in a small sauce pan. Heat the milk until it reaches a low simmer and let it simmer for about three minutes. Take the mixture off the heat and let the bags steep for another ten minutes. Carefully squeeze the bags to release excess liquid and throw the bags away.
  2. Sift together all of the dry ingredients and set aside. Tea leaves are optional (see note below).
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat or a griddle to 350.
  4. Separate out the 3 eggs by placing the whites in one large bowl and the yolk in another. Set the whites aside.
  5. Whisk together the 3 egg yolks, egg, coconut oil, and honey. Then whisk in the earl grey milk mixture
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and thoroughly mix. Let mixture set for 2-3 minutes.
  7. While the dough is setting use a hand or stand mixer to beat the egg whites until the form stiff peaks.
  8. Mix the blueberries in to the batter and then gently fold in the egg whites.
  9. Grease your skillet with butter, ghee or coconut oil. Use a ¼ cup to scoop the batter and make 2-3 inch diameter pancakes (refer to notes).
  10. Cook the pancakes on one side for 3-4 minutes and then carefully flip them. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately or place on a wire rack in the oven.


  • The crushed tea leaves are optional in this recipe. It really depends on how strong of a “tea’ flavor you want. Just makes sure they are thoroughly crushed so you don’t have a lot of crunch in your pancakes


  • Make sure your pan is hot first
  • Do not make the pancakes too wide in diameter because it will make them difficult to flip.
  • Do not flip them too early. If you need to, please set a timer to make sure.
  • Use a large flat spatula to carefully flip the pancakes. It sometimes takes a little practice to flip grain free pancakes.
