How To Make Almond Flour Pancakes
Just in case you don’t have almond flour on hand, be sure to read our guide to making homemade almond flour here. Now let’s begin with first assembling the needed kitchen items and ingredients before tackling the recipe.
What You’ll Need
- medium mixing bowl
- griddle or large skillet
- measuring cups
- non-stick spray (optional substitute for oil)
- 1 cup almond flour (not almond meal)
- 2 large brown eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon seltzer water
- 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
- 2 teaspoons avocado oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
Now that all items and ingredients have been collected, it’s time to get started on our quick almond flour pancakes recipe.
Step #1: Whisk Away
In mixing bowl, whisk almond flour, vanilla, water, eggs, salt, and seltzer water until batter is smooth and even. Set aside.
Step #2: Skillet Sizzle
Next, heat skillet over medium heat. Coat with small amount of oil so pancakes don’t stick. Pour batter onto heated pan with measuring cup, and cook for about four minutes or until the edges firm up and the batter bubbles.
Step #3: Fantastic Flip
Then, carefully flip pancakes with spatula and cook on the other side; they should brown in about another four minutes. Once done, remove from skillet and set aside.
Step #4: Repeat Repeat
Repeat heating oil and cooking pancakes until batter is gone. Garnish with your favorite toppings and enjoy immediately.
The great thing about flapjacks is they can be customized to cater to any dietary need or flavor whim. Not only do we love our almond flour pancakes, but we are obsessed with this super easy vegan version. We also enjoy a classic blueberry pancake recipe, as well as a from-scratch version. Or, embrace fall with cool applesauce pancakes. As far as toppings go, for extra decadence consider adding homemade whipped cream. For a more traditional take, maple syrup is our go-to addition. We also like adding fresh fruit, butter, nuts, or peanut butter on top of stacks of pancakes. You can truly go in so many fun directions with this breakfast dish.
