Yields 16 3-inch Pancakes
3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
3/4 Lemon, juiced and divided
1 medium Banana, mashed
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Coconut Flour
1/2 cup Arrowroot Powder + 1 tablespoon
1/2 tablespoon Baking Powder

2. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3. Add to the wet mixture about 1/4 cup at a time, whisking thoroughly.
4. Grease a large skillet with coconut oil and place over medium heat. Once hot, pour pancakes in the skillet, about 3-inches wide.
