These pancakes are a wonderful substitute for regular pancakes when you are watching your carbs! They are very filling and are on the dense side. This is a basic recipe can be tweaked. Any sweetener can be substituted for the maple syrup. Enjoy!

I used honey instead of syrup but it was not sweet enough with 1 tablespoon so I added an tablespoon of honey and entire banana to make it sweet enough I also added 2 teaspoons of vanilla. It was delicious this way. Read More

This is a quick recipe, however the pancakes turned out a little dry. I think since most other reviewers added more syrup or honey, that probably helped with it. I would definitely add a teaspoon of vanilla next time and maybe even half a tsp baking soda. Read More

We made these yesterday and they were delicious! My husband thought it was "too eggy" So we used one egg, one whisked egg white, and greek yogurt this time, and man oh man was it a game changer! AMAZING!! We also added vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon both times we made these! Read More

Good but needs some doctoring. Add 1/2 tsp baking soda and a dash of lemon juice. This will help create the fluffiness of real wheat pancakes. Also fluff the almond meal a bit prior to measuring to avoid overly thick batter. Lastly, I used honey instead of maple syrup. Read More

I substituted whole milk for water although can use almond and/or coconut milk; and substituted oil with coconut oil. I also substituted coconut/agave sugar in place of the maple syrup. I will add a banana next time to make it a bit sweeter (didn't have any in the house). I added baking soda and baking powder to make the pancakes fluffy cinnamon nutmeg ginger and cloves. I also added walnut pieces but you may want to add a smidgen more milk or oil to make the batter a bit less hearty. The walnuts thicken the batter a bit. Definitely a lot quicker than other recipes although my substitutions may have lengthened the cook time a bit; it's still quicker! Yummy! Read More

This was an easy, quick recipe for making almond flour pancakes. I halved it, exactly, because I made them just for myself. I did sub honey for the maple syrup (I don't use syrup on mine, I had them with a pear/apple butter). The one big change I would make is to omit, or switch to just a pinch, of salt. Following the recipe, I found them to be too salty. I would probably add almond or vanilla extract in the future as well. Good consistency, though, and a good base for someone who has little experience cooking with alternative flours! Read More

We really liked them. It made 8 good sized pancakes. Added a ripe banana, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. I did not add any maple syrup to the batter but did pour some on the finished pancakes. Also boosted the rise with a half teaspoon each of baking soda and baking powder and a splash of lemon juice. What took me by surprise in the first lot was how fast they began to burn on the bottom! I flipped the second and final lot sooner and that worked better. I was also surprised that they had to be turned before they set so they were wet inside and did not hold their shape when flipped. That being said, I found them much tastier than any wheat flour pancake I have ever eaten. I am keeping this recipe in my Allrecipes recipe box! Read More

These were quick and easy and great starter recipe for those looking for a gluten free/paleo pancake alternative. I halved the recipe and only used a pinch of salt. I think more would have been too much. Vanilla extract would be a nice addition and I will try that the next time I make them. Read More

I followed this recipe and these were amazing! I made five inch pancakes. The batter allowed for a total of five pancakes. The nutty flavor was a major plus for this dish. I let the batter sit for about ten minutes before I started cooking. I melted real butter before each batter pour to get a crispy pancake. Read More
