Made with almond flour only, these almond pancakes are made with almond flour, almond milk, pastured eggs, vanilla and raspberries. They are so flavourful. Plus, they are cooked in coconut oil and served with pure maple syrup. Doesn’t sound delightful?! The pancakes are absolutely delicious. I made them for my son on a rainy Sunday morning and he loved them.
What a great way to serve them food they like but in a healthier way, right?! Those pancakes are absolutely guilt-free. They’re gluten- and grain-free, soy-free and dairy-free. They aren’t vegan though as I use eggs. If you’re vegan I don’t think it would work to make them with flax eggs but hey, if you try it, I’d like to know how they turned out!
The pancakes are surprisingly easy to make. The tip to cook them is to use a non-stick skillet. Otherwise it may not even work. I don’t know I havent try but with experience I’m pretty sure the batter would just stick on it and you won’t get pancakes but scrambled dough haha! So get your non-stick pan out and cook them in it. And like normal pancakes, if you have leftovers, you can even refrigerate them and heat them up the next morning – no waste.
I hope you enjoy them. It’s almost as healthy as you can get if you’re looking for a healthy pancake recipe for your kids. Plus most kids don’t eat nuts so eating almond flour is a good way to add in some of the nutrients of the almonds. You can even add almond butter on the pancakes if you like. It’s a good combination with raspberries.
