  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 2 cups flour all-purpose, whole wheat, or both
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs


  • Combine the sourdough starter, flour, sugar, and milk.
  • Cover the mixture and allow to "rest" at room temperature for 2-12 hours.
  • Combine the baking soda, salt, coconut oil, and eggs together in a separate bowl.
  • Add to the sourdough mixture and mix until smooth (without over mixing).
  • Spoon the batter on to an oiled skillet or pan and cook the pancakes for about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • This recipe works best with all-purpose flour. However, feel free to use whole wheat flour or a mixture of both!
  • Any type of milk will work great in this recipe.
  • Butter is also a great substitution if you don't have coconut oil on hand.
  • Letting the batter "rest" for as long as possible allows the sourdough starter and the flour to ferment and become more digestible.
  • The batter will be slightly thick! Use a spoon to shape the batter in the skillet to create perfectly fluffy pancakes.
  • Once cooled, feel free to store these sourdough pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week or the freezer for up to 3 months!
