Happy Pancake Sunday!
Before I get into today’s mango lovin’ pancake recipe, I fear there is need for a PSA regarding my last post…
It has been brought to my attention that some of you could be allergic to the skin of the mango if you have an allergy to poison ivy/oak/sumac…
Emphasis on the “some” and “if” because I am actually VERY allergic to poison ivy myself, but have had no problem whatsoever with the mango peel. After doing a bit of research, it looks as if most people just experience mild contact dermatitis (slight rash to the face and mouth and sometimes the hands), but can worsen in some. If you remember, I’ve had a similar reaction to strawberries.
Just wanted to make everyone aware of this…so you know, you can sue me for developing a breakout hours before a hot date! 😉
So make sure you wash the outside of the fruit well before slicing…and when in doubt, leave it out (the peel that is)! 😉
Now that that little bit of business has been attended to…
Onto some pancakes!
Just like Friday’s chicken salad…it’s like a trip to the beach…only NOW you can vacation during BREAKFAST!
One of my favorite things about blogging is being able to share delicious recipes with you guys and I absolutely hate it when someone can’t enjoy something I’ve posted. That’s actually one of the reasons I play around with a lot of gluten-free/vegan/vegetarian substitutions…well that and the fact that I’m easily amused and STILL to this day can’t get over the fact that ground flax can replace an egg! 😉
So…with that little preface, let me get to my point.
I know I’ve been throwing coconut flour around all willy nilly for months now, but I KNOW there are some of you out there who don’t have access to it, so I created this recipe to finally satisfy EVERYONE’S coconut craving!

If you don’t have protein powder, well, then I don’t know WHAT to do with you…seriously though, you can always omit it and just bump up the amount of flour, but I gotta say I LOVED the flavor just a half a scoop did for these cakes…
I swear, it was like eating coconut COOKIES!
Do you have any food allergies?
I only have trouble with strawberries every once in a while, but I can’t eat kiwi at all! Remember how I said the reaction can worsen in some people? Yeah, the last time I ate kiwi, my throat swelled and it got a little hard to breath! :O
I’ve gone through my life without being allergic to anything (knock on wood, I’d hate to randomly develop something now), and I’m definitely grateful for that! I grew up with kids who were allergic to nuts and for me, that would be pretty tragic. :-p
I went most of my life never having any problems either…then all of a sudden, last summer, I find out that I’m allergic to kiwi! Of course I want it more now, JUST because I can’t have it! Lol
Oh my gosh, my heart goes out to people with nut allergies! I would die!
these look deeeelicious. and i love the contrasting colors of your photos!
Thank you Kris! I really liked how they came out too…plus, I finally got to use one of my new plates! 😀 Lol
I’m allergic to peanuts, all nuts except almonds, scallops, clams, oysters, mussels, and possibly one of the spices in curry powder. I don’t mind most of my allergies, except the nuts/peanut thing. That’s a royal pain in my butt! 😛
But luckily I’m not allergic to a single thing in these pancakes. Woohoo!
Wow girlie! I knew you were allergic to nuts, but I had no idea you had so many other allergies too! Is it all shellfish or can you have shrimp? My little sister used to be allergic to shrimp, but she discovered just how much she could eat BEFORE having a reaction (just hives for her) and then one day, she could eat more, and now it doesn’t bother her at all! So weird!
I can imagine the frustration of the nut/peanut allergy…especially being a blogger! Boo! But yay for almonds…and coconut…and MANGOS! 😉
Strawberries make my mouth feel weird–so do walnuts. Now I need to look those up, just thought it was me being my odd self, but it could be a super-mild reaction. And looking up those coconut flour recipes, because I have a giant unused bag of the stuff and I don’t really know what to do with it–Should have added it to my list of foodie-blogger-truths yesterday, I just don’t really like it! (So far, at least. I’ll keep trying.)
DON’T LIKE COCONUT FLOUR?! Omg, give it to meeeeeeeeeeee! I swear, I put it in absolutely everything…in fact, I threw it in a smoothie yesterday for breakfast which made it spoonable and perfectly coconutty…oh it was heaven in a Magic Bullet cup! Lol
Walnuts make my mouth feel a little weird too. I’ve heard it’s not that uncommon. I can have them IN something like muffins, bread, or brownies, but by themselves, or ground into butter, I just don’t like the feeling. :-/
Same for me with walnuts–if they’re cooked up/in a baked good, they are both delicious and don’t bother me. Plain? Weird mouth feelings all around. And at least I now have one coconut flour recipe I like ;D
Yay for coconut flour! I actually plopped some in a smoothie the other day and thought of you! It’s just enough to give it a smooth coconutty flavor and it thickens it up like CRAZY…you don’t even need the gums at all!
I’m SO glad you liked the pancakes. Those are actually at the top of the list of my favorite pancakes I’ve made…I need to make them again sometime soon!
