Super Easy Almond Flour Pancake Recipe

We eat eggs for breakfast often and sometimes the kids get tired of them. Grain-free pancakes pack a lot of protein and healthy fats kids need, so we opt for coconut flour or almond flour pancakes when we need a break from eggs. These easy almond flour pancakes are a regular on the menu at our house now.

If you’ve gone grain free and are missing pancakes, try these!

Healthy Almond Flour Pancakes (Kid-Approved)

My favorite part about these pancakes is that they only have three main ingredients and can be made in less than five minutes! I use blanched almond flour as it provides a very smooth and fluffy texture, but any high quality almond flour will work (though there will be some variation in the final pancake with different flours).

They are GAPS legal and dairy optional, but they are so delicious no one would ever suspect we are making them for health reasons.

Once you master almond flour pancakes, try coconut flour pancakes or grain-free crepes to keep the breakfast menu interesting.

A note on grain-free pancakes: These will be a little denser than your traditional pancake. The good news is, you don’t have to make 50 of them to fill everyone up! A few small pancakes have enough protein and fiber to really satisfy.

Pancake Variations

These are very easy to customize just as you would regular pancakes. Some favorites in our house are:

  • banana slices and nuts (no bananas on my plate though!)
  • fresh berries
  • homemade nutella
  • plain butter and maple syrup
  • dark chocolate chips and orange zest
  • shredded zucchini with nutmeg and cinnamon (like zucchini bread!)
  • with a dollop of yogurt

The options are endless! Give these a try and let me know what you think!
