How to Make the Easiest, Tastiest Almond Flour Pancakes
These nearly foolproof gluten-free pancakes are ready in enjoy in just 20 minutes.
First, set out a large mixing bowl. Add the almond flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon to the bowl. Whisk the dry ingredients well.
In a measuring pitcher, whisk together the wet ingredients – eggs, almond milk, and vanilla extract.
Then whisk the wet mixture thoroughly into the dry mixture and blend. There will be small lumps, but that’s ok. You don’t want to work the batter too much so that the pancakes rise properly.
Place a nonstick skillet over medium heat on the stovetop. Once hot, place a small dollop of butter or oil in the skillet and melt. Use a ¼ cup scoop to portion the pancake batter and pour it onto the hot skillet.
Cook the Almond Flour Pancakes for just a few minutes per side. Use a thin spatula to flip the pancakes once or twice until browned on both sides. Raise or lower the temperature as needed so the pancakes cook through, yet stay golden on the outside without burning.
Once done, transfer the pancakes to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and keep warm in a 200-degree oven.
Repeat the pancake-making process with the remaining batter.

Lately I don’t like eating too much sugar. Maybe I should cut down on the sugar for this recipe.
Very good recipe thanks 😍
This is my second time making this recipe and this time I doubled the ingredients to store some in freezer. Second time I made and this time I added unsweetened coconut flakes. Amazing!!
Where did I go wrong? Clearly flax eggs do not work in this recipe :( I’m not wasting the batter, just adding actual eggs to the mixture. (fingers crossed)
Perfect texture and so delicious!
It was a huge hit for breakfast at my house!! My family really enjoyed it!
These turned out so fluffy and amazing!
These are some of the best pancakes that I have ever tried!
