I am a huge fan of leisurely and slow weekend mornings, sipping on a warm cup of something, mixing up some batter for something delicious.

The first time we tried making grain-free, was pancakes – and let me just say it was a complete disaster.  For some reason, grain-free pancakes tend to not stick together, flipping them turn into a giant mess and I feared we would never be able to have pancakes again.  This happened to every single recipe that I tried.

This is when I took matters into my own hands and started to figure out a way to make it work.  The end result? The most delicious and fluffy grain-free pancakes ever.

Recipe Grain Free Pancakes

We love topping these beauties with a pat of maple butter, pure maple syrup, macadamia butter, or when we are feeling really fancy – this simple homemade caramel sauce with pecans.

I hope this recipe becomes a treasure in your kitchen as it is in ours.

Happy eating!

I don’t recommend over-consuming nuts and seeds.

Fluffy Pancakes {Grain-Free}

A simple recipe for fluffy grain-free pancakes.

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple sugar
  • ½ cup cultured plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 pastured eggs
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter for the pan
  1. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla extract and mix well.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet and swirl around to coat it.

  3. Spoon the pancake batter (about a ¼ cup each) into the skillet and cook until the edges are set. It will be about 3-4 minutes. Flip the pancake and continue to cook until the second side is golden – another 2-3 minutes.

  4. Serve with a pat of butter and some maple syrup. Or any other topping of your choice.
