Let’s talk about pancakes.

I am a total pancake fanatic. For some reason, I’ve always been a pancake person — don’t ask me why. Maybe it’s their versatility, simplicity, or just sheer deliciousness . . . I don’t know.

Here’s another fun fact about me: I don’t like waffles. I know, you probably hate me know. (And I hate myself too.) Maybe I just have a negative perception of waffles because I’ve never had a good waffle iron, or maybe I just have an intrinsic aversion to waffles. Again, I don’t know.

What I do know: I love, love, love these paleo almond flour pancakes. They are a breeze to make. One bowl, ten minutes, BOOM! You have pancakes.

I used almond flour to make these cakes, which is a departure from my typical pancake recipes. Most of my recipes involve either bananas or coconut flour. However, I’ve had many messy pancake failures with these types of pancakes, so I set out to find a recipe that would hold together.

You guys, I found it. The ultimate paleo pancake recipe was sitting in my kitchen all along! I adapted my grandma’s pancake recipe slightly, substituted ingredients, said a prayer, and fired up the griddle. (I mean, I turned on my electric stove to heat up a nonstick cooking skillet. <— nerd with boring kitchen technology) Lo and behold, they worked! Unlike any other paleo pancakes I have ever made, these paleo almond flour pancakes actually formed bubbles on the top when they were ready to be flipped!!

You know you’re a real food blogger when you’re excited by bubbles in your pancakes, right?!

I have one note of caution for you: Do not overcook these pancakes! I forgot about one while it was cooking . . . and it turned into a cracker. Nope, not kidding. It was a legitimate cracker. It crunched, therefore it was a cracker.

Okay, I actually have a second note of caution for you. Be careful about when you add your leavener! I added mine at the wrong time, and my pancakes didn’t rise as much as I had hoped. Don’t worry, though; flat pancakes are still delicious.

In fact, even the cracker was delicious.

Since almond flour is the key ingredient in these pancakes, I figured I’d tell you a little about it. Almond flour is made from finely ground blanched almonds, and it is a mainstay in many paleo diets. I personally don’t use it very often, because it is expeeeeensive. We’re talking, like, $9/pound for this stuff! NINE. DOLLARS. A. POUND. And that’s when you find it on sale! Still, I can see why people pay so much for almond flour: it’s low in carbohydrates, high in protein, and very versatile. Almond flour is a great substitute for regular flour, and it’s worth keeping in your paleo kitchen. You know why it’s worth keeping in your kitchen? So you can make these pancakes.

These paleo almond flour pancakes are:

  • paleo
  • grain-free
  • low-carb ish (assuming you don’t drown them in maple syrup like I did . . . wait, who are we kidding? Pancakes aren’t pancakes without maple syrup! <— but, use the real stuff. Log Cabin Corn Syrup is NOT PALEO! Treat yourself with some real maple syrup. It’s better for you, anyway.)
  • vegan-adaptable: just use two flax eggs (see recipe note) or your favorite vegan egg substitute!
  • fluffy and soft
  • tasty
  • yummy
  • delectable
  • mouthwatering
  • scrumptious
  • finger-licking
  • heaven in your mouth

So, are you ready to make the best paleo almond flour pancakes ever?

Yes, you are.

    1. Samantha,
      These pancakes are soy-free! Just make sure you use a nut milk that is free of soy.
      They are also gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free.
      Thank you for commenting!
