Amazing Almond Flour Pancakes (Gluten-Free and Paleo-Friendly)

4.3
(109)

While trying many of the grain free pancake ideas out there, I discovered that many pancake recipes are just too 'eggy' or include bananas in the recipe. A lot of the recipes resulted in pancakes that were too flat and broke apart when flipping. I wanted a recipe that was like the Aunt Jemima® pancakes I grew up with: delicious and fluffy. After much experimentation with recipes and reading forum comments, I finally put together something reminiscent of childhood quality pancakes. Top with maple syrup and fresh fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1 tablespoon chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life®), or more to taste (Optional)

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste (Optional)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg white

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup water, or as needed

Directions

  1. Preheat a lightly oiled griddle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Whisk almond flour, chocolate chips, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Whisk egg, egg white, honey, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture, adding enough water to reach a pancake batter consistency.

  3. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the prepared griddle and cook until pancakes are golden brown and edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

For a fun twist, add the pancake batter to a frosting bag and use to create shapes, letters, or designs for pancakes.
