Almond flour pancakes keto and dairy free
These almond flour pancakes are the best fluffy almond flour pancakes to start the day. If you are looking for healthy pancakes for kids it’s also a great recipe! They contain lots of protein and fibers to keep their little tummy full until lunchtime. Honestly, everyone loves this simple almond flour pancakes recipe in my house. In addition to their amazing fluffy texture and nutty sweet flavor, they are super EASY to make. This recipe is much easier to make than my keto coconut flour pancakes since almond flour is easier to work with than coconut flour.
Easy healthy pancakes without banana
Additionally, these healthy pancakes without banana are keto friendly. They don’t use any high-carb fruits, only low-carb flour and no added sugar. Below are all the ingredients you need to make them.
Almond flour – make sure you use blanched almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal has a coarser texture and the paleo pancakes will lose their fluffy texture with almond meal
Unsweetened vanilla almond milk – as always, I love to use Almond Breeze as there’s no sugar added in their almond milk, it’s low calories and dairy free. Any milk will work in this recipe, so if you can’t find almond milk, feel free to adapt with any milk you like.
Eggs – you need eggs in this almond flour pancake recipe especially if you want to keep the recipe low-carb. At this time the only egg replacement option that works was using 1/4 cup of buckwheat flour instead of eggs but it’s not a low-carb option.
Melted coconut oil – or any vegetable oil you like. If you are using coconut oil, make sure your eggs and milk are not too cold, or it would solidify the coconut oil, creating lumps in the batter.
Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon is what I like to use, you can upgrade to 3/4 teaspoon for fluffier pancakes if you like.
5 tips to make perfect gluten-free pancakes
Ingredients’ temperature – make sure your eggs and almond milk are at room temperature. If they are cold, straight from the fridge, they will solidify the melted coconut oil creating lumps. If your ingredients are cold and you can’t wait, use a different oil to prevent this from happening. Any vegetable oil would work well like canola oil, avocado oil, flaxseed oil.
Cooking temperature – temperature is key to make the perfect almond flour pancakes. The crepe pan should be hot but not too hot or the pancakes won’t raise and burn. Choose a medium-high heat, reducing to low heat if needed, be patient.
Space – Leave them some space. Don’t add more than 3 pancakes at a time in the crepe pan for even cooking. Keep your pan still, no shaking and wait until the sides are set before you flip them to the other side.
Oil – Spray or rub the pan with absorbent paper covered with vegetable oil. Avoid butter, it burns easily at medium-high temperature leaving a burn flavor to your pancakes. Don’t add oil directly or it will dry your pancakes.
Flipping – not more than one flip or your almond flour pancakes will deflate. Also make sure you flip them after the bubbles are showing in the batter. If flipped too early, they will break and not raise.
What goes well with almond flour pancakes?
Paleo pancakes are very bland on their own. We recommend to add toppings to bring out all the flavor of those almond flour pancakes. First, a delicious simple pancake topping is a piece of grass-fed butter and sugar free flavored maple syrup. The hot pancakes melt the butter, it’s absorbed into the dough adding an amazing buttery flavor. Next, melted chocolate or sugar-free chocolate sauce and berries. This is a powerful combo of flavor especially chocolate and raspberry. Finally, why not adding some savory toppings on your pancakes? Try some mashed avocado, chives, smoked salmon topped with poached egg. This will create the most decadent paleo pancakes for breakfast.
