  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder gluten free
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tbsp butter 2 tbsp melted and 2 tbsp butter for cooking
  • 3/4 cup almond milk or other low carb milk
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 oz smoked salmon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dill sprigs finely chopped


  • Mix together in a bowl, the coconut flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the eggs and stir gently till combined.
  • Pour in the melted butter (2 tbsp)
  • Now add in the milk gradually, stirring until combined after each addition.
  • Continue to add the milk until it is combined and the batter is thick.
  • Heat a frypan to medium heat and add a tsp butter.
  • Using a teaspoon, add a dollop of batter about 1 to 1.5 inch (3-4cm) diameter in size to the frypan and press down with the back of the spoon to form a flat round shape. Continue to add teaspoons of batter till pan is filled.
  • Cook for about 2 mins or until browned and then very carefully flip and cook for another 1-2 mins on the other side.
  • Place cooked blinis on a plate lined with paper towel.
  • Add another tsp butter to the pan and cook another batch of blinis. Continue until all the batter is used.
  • In a bowl, combine the cream cheese with 1 tbsp lemon juice.
  • Top each blini with some of the cream cheese mixture, smoked salmon and dill.


Recipe makes 30 blinis - one serving is 5 blinis
Based on a recipe from http://annavocino.com/
  • The best size for bite-sized blinis, perfect to serve as an hors-d'oeuvre is about 1 to 1.5 inch (3-4cm) diameter in size
  • The blinis are still fragile when cooking on the first side. When they are nicely browned, flip very carefully as the uncooked size will still be quite moist. Turn them carefully with a spatula to ensure they stay together. They will be very solid after cooked on both sides. 
  • If you aren't sure if they have cooked through, test one by cutting in half and it will no longer be moist (batter still visible) inside
  • If blinis fall apart when flipping, you may need to cook them at higher heat or for longer before turning
