Almond flour pancakes

The kiddo woke up yesterday with a cough and fever.  I spent most of the day on the couch with my iPad.  I had little room for beads.  Honestly, with the kiddo on my lap and the dogs jumping around, I was probably wise in forgoing beading for the day.

I was happy to see the kiddo perk up a bit that evening.  She hadn't eaten much all day, so when she asked for pancakes, I was happy to oblige.  "Put almonds in them, please," she said.  I think she's beginning to like my almond flour versions.

My husband and I have had problems in the past with our almond flour pancakes coming out too crumbly.  I took my go-to white flour recipe and tweaked it.  I am very pleased with the results.  My pancakes have a pancake like consistency, but are a bit denser than the white flour pancakes (almost like a wheat flour or oatmeal version).  The kiddo devoured them and my husband even liked them.  :)

Almond flour pancakes
(makes 12)

2 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon (we like our cinnamon around here)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil (this is what I had on hand, melted butter would work also)
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
melted butter or bacon fat, for frying

Mix dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together.  Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.

Heat skillet on medium low heat.  Add melted butter or bacon fat.  Pour batter by 1/4 cup into skillet.  Let fry about 3-5 minutes.  (With these, when I think they are ready to turn over, I wait one more minute.)  Flip. Fry on other side for a few minutes.


  1. Mmm sound delish Pixiloo, I'm going to have to try this one.

  2. Those just look amazing. How much to get you to come to MY house?

  3. I'm making them right now. Have you tried adding vanilla extract?

    1. My husband adds vanilla when he makes them. The kiddo thinks it makes them "extra special." :) I hope you liked the recipe.

    2. I did! I've made them twice so far, the second time adding vanilla. My husband likes them, which is saying A LOT since I am always trying out different-floured-pancakes. So far, this was his favorite, so it's a keeper! :)

    3. I'm so glad you are enjoying them. Thanks so much for the kind words. :)
