How to Make The Best Paleo Pancakes

Updated on October 4, 2014

I've been battling my weight for most of my life and I blame it on sweets. I used to curse the trays of baked goods on bakery shelves that practically begged me to take them home. Once the pancake craze took over Japan by storm, I was in utter despair as I struggled to walk past pancake restaurants without a second ( or third ) glance.

So I guess it's no understatement when I say that almond flour saved me from jumping off a cliff. All kidding aside, these paleo pancakes satisfy my most intense pancake cravings and they always fill me up without weighing me down. No gluten, no refined sugars and no sugar high to bring me down afterwards. The best thing about these pancakes is that they are easy to make and pretty good as far as paleo pancakes are concerned.

Helpful Tips

  • Keep the pancakes around 6 inches in diameter or smaller.
  • Don't overcook the pancakes. They taste better slightly moist.
  • Blend all ingredients well with a blender. You can also mix well with a whisk

Enjoy these pancakes with a little maple syrup, a sprinkling of cinnamon or with fresh berries.

Arrowroot powder is a great natural thickening agent that can be used for sauces, fruit pie fillings and glazes. If you're on a Paleo , low carb or just want to eat cleaner, you should definitely switch to arrowroot if you're still using cornstarch.

      Seems like a great recipe! Will need to try it. You indicate "Makes 2" Is that 2 6-inch pancakes from 1.5 cups of almond flour? Also need to check out exactly what a "paleo" diet is...thanks again for stimulating my curiosity and taste buds.

      Oooh, I'm going to try this. I might sub coconut sugar like MSchindel suggested below. Any other paleo-friendly sweeteners you might recommend?

      I'll have to try these for sure. Had to look up erythritol - have Stevia at home but not that - will have to try that too!

      I love pancakes but don't have them that much. Personally, I haven't made a pancake in over 3 years. Almond flour sounds intriguing ... must try some. Congrats on your success.

      Thanks for sharing your recipe, Shinichi! Although I don't follow a completely paleo approach to eating I have made a significant shift to minimize the amount of processed and refined foods and wheat in the food I consume. I'll probably sub coconut sugar or raw honey for the erythritol when I make them, which I definitely intend to do. :)

      I can't believe I haven't tried almond flour yet. I eat Paleo and gluten-free, and I've seen you recommend it before in other recipes. Will have to buy it soon!
