Favorite Almond Flour Pancakes

My Favorite Almond Flour Pancakes are gluten-free and easy-to-make! Perfect for the weekend mornings.

There are two very good reasons why I love making these almond flour pancakes. One, they are gluten-free. Two, I use almond extract—which gives these pancakes a really nice almond flavor.

Furthermore, this recipe works with add-ins such as blueberries, chocolate chips, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Ingredients You Will Need

The ingredients listed are in no particular order.

Almond FlourMake sure to use blanched almond flour for this recipe.
Corn StarchAlmond flour does not absorb liquid well. Corn starch is there to soak up any liquid that the almond flour can’t.
EggsWill help bind the pancakes since there is no gluten.
MilkFeel free to use your favorite milk of choice. Almond milk would be quite ideal, wouldn’t ya say!?
Maple SyrupPure maple syrup will add that additional all-natural sweetness we crave in pancakes. It will go in the batter and on top.
Almond ExtractUsing almond extract instead of vanilla is completely necessary for this recipe. It adds a really nice almond flavor.
Other Essential IngredientsBaking powder, to help them rice and fluff-up. Kosher salt to balance out the sweetness.

How To Make Pancakes With Almond Flour

I am so excited to share with you how easy these healthy pancakes are to make!

  1. First, in a large mixing bowl, add all of the wet ingredients together and whisk until homogenized liquid forms. Set the bowl aside.
  2. When ready, in a separate mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine.
  3. Next, add the dry ingredients with the wet. Fold and mix to combine. Do not be afraid to over-mix, there is no gluten in here. Set the batter aside on the countertop for 10 minutes to rest.
  4. Finally, heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. I find that almond flour pancakes do not thrive on high-heat.
  5. Grease the pan, then add about 1/3 cup of batter. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the bottom is nicely golden brown.
  6. Flip and continue to cook for an additional minute.

Repeat the process until all pancakes have been made.

Pancake Tips

  • Make sure to separate your wet ingredients from the dry ingredients.
  • Use a cast-iron pan to create those crispy edges.
  • Grease your cast-iron pan well with butter, coconut oil, or grease of choice. 
  • Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. This will help soften the almond flour and thicken the batter.
  • Make sure to cook these pancakes on medium-low heat. Wipe out the pan after each cooked pancake if cooking one-by-one or after each batch.

Description

Fluffy Almond Flour Pancakes that are gluten-free and easy-to-make! Perfect for the weekend mornings.


Scale

Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • ½ almond milk or milk of choice

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 and ½ cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot flour for paleo
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Enough grass-fed gee or coconut oil for greasing the pan.

Optional add-ins (either or)

  • ⅓ cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½  cup fresh blueberries

 


Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add all of the wet ingredients together and whisk until homogenized liquid forms. Set the wet ingredients aside.
  2. When ready, in a separate mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine.
  3. Next, add the dry ingredients with the wet. Fold and mix to combine. Do not be afraid to over-mix, there is no gluten in here. Set the batter aside on the countertop for 10 minutes to rest. Resting the batter will ensure the pancakes are nice and fluffy.
  4. Finally, heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. I find that almond flour pancakes do not thrive on high-heat. Once heated, dollop or spray grease of choice all over the pan. Next, add about 1/3 cup of batter ( I like to use my measuring cup for this part).
  5. Then, cook for about 2 minutes or until the bottom is nicely golden brown. Flip and continue to cook for an additional minute.
  6. Repeat the process until all pancakes have been made. 

Serve with fresh blueberries on top and warm maple syrup. 

 

Notes

If the pancakes are getting browner faster than the insides are cooked, the heat is too high. 

If the pancakes are not fluffy and tender, chances are the batter didn’t rest long enough.

    This recipe was delicious! I used almond milk and added in some cinnamon. The texture was still light and fluffy, definitely will make it again!
