It's always nice when the best version of a recipe is also the easiest. After testing many almond flour pancake recipes that always came out unbalanced in different ways, I now give you the most texturally and *tastily* superior one of them all. Oh, and they are gluten-free, in case you're wondering. Serve with fresh fruit coated in maple syrup!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine eggs, olive oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, almond meal, and baking powder in a bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined. Let batter sit for 10 minutes to marry the flavors and activate the baking powder.

  • Butter a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat. Scoop in batter into any size pancake(s) you like. Cook until edges are set and bottom is golden brown, 2 or 3 minutes. Flip and cook until slightly springy to the touch, another 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Chef's Notes:

Vegetable oil or melted butter can substitute for the olive oil.

I used Bob's Red Mill(R) almond meal.

I couldn't wait to give these a try, so we had them for tonight's dessert. I could taste they are made with almond flour, and they were pretty good. My 12 yo is a pancake snob, she mentioned they were a bit too thick, so I may thin them out with a bit of almond milk next time. I used avocado oil, instead of olive oil, it's what I had on hand. I topped mine with bananas, walnuts and maple syrup...I had a good time. Will certainly make them again...trying desperately to get my family off of w flour. Thanks Chef Read More

Delicious! I used almond flour vs almond meal, since that is what I had on hand. The end result was thinner, less fluffy pancakes. However, they were still very flavorful and delicious! I'm going to grab some almond meal and try these again. Once again, another amazing recipe from the king himself, Chef John. Read More

These are perfect for us who monitar our carbs and give us more tasty options for staying gluten free! Since my Lakanto Monkfruit syrup is like using liquid gold, I replaced the maple syrup with 1/2 teaspoon of organic maple extract,and 1 1/2 Tablespoon of Swerve brown sugar substitute. I used the maple Monkfruit syrup on the almond pancakes after they were finished. Delicious Chief John! I am happy that you're interested in healthier foods.;) Read More

Delicious tasty and easy. They do not bubble up like regular on the uncooked side so I cooked them on low as to not burn them (the saying is true with the first pancake). Will be using this recipe over and over! Read More
