Grain Free Rollup Pancakes

I’m so excited to share my grain free rollup pancake recipe with you today! We’ve been working hard at finding foods that are kid-friendly AND grain free. Today I have a winner!

I found this recipe at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. They looked so good but had flour in them. I decided to make them as directed on the site and then I got to experimenting. (If you’re not concerned about grains, the recipe linked above is EXCELLENT!)

My Grain Free Rollup Pancakes

I made a few tweaks to Mel’s recipe by incorporating buttermilk, butter, stevia, and coconut flour. YUM!!!! My kids didn’t even bat an eye when I gave them my grain free version! Win! I tasted both, one after the other, and the only thing I noticed about the different versions is that my grain free ones have an ever so slightly different taste. (if you’ve ever eaten coconut flour pancakes, you’ll recognize the flavor.) By no means, is the coconut flour overpowering though.

Our New Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches

The versatility of this recipe is the beauty of it! Since we aren’t really doing bread anymore and I love that the texture of these pancakes is perfect for filling and rolling up. In fact, I gave my Eva a peanut butter and jelly rollup using the leftover pancakes and she gobbled it right down. Yay for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches being back on the lunch menu!

Grain Free Rollup Pancake Recipe

  • 1 c. lowfat cottage cheese
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. buttermilk (can also add small splash of vinegar to regular milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 teeny tiny scoop of pure stevia extract


Place all the ingredients in the blender. Turn blender on and process until smooth; the batter will be very thin.  Let batter rest for 5 minutes.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat or 400 degrees.

Pour batter onto hot and well buttered skillet and cook for about 1 minute.  The batter will not bubble or puff up like regular batter so turn after the edges are set.  Turn gently (these are more delicate than regular pancakes).

Grain Free Rollup Pancakes Cooking

Remove from griddle when cooked on the other side.

These can be served as regular pancakes or with filling and rolled up.  The texture of these is very moist, especially for grain-free and coconut flour.  Filling and so delicious!!!
