If you’ve read my paleo matcha pancake post, then you know that pancakes hold a special place in my heart. I’m a firm believer that everyone needs a solid pancake recipe in their arsenal of breakfast recipes. I’ve endured many a squishy pancake through several rounds of recipe testing, but I think this ones the winner. Happy National Pancake Day!

The Best Paleo Pancakes
- 1 1/4 cup Otto’s Cassava flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 3 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 large tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 scoop collagen peptides (optional)
- Purely Elizabeth granola (optional, for topping)
- Fresh fruit (optional, for topping)
- 2 eggs, preferably room temp, whisked
- 1 large tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
- 1-2 cups nut milk
- Preheat griddle to 350 F.
- Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- In a smaller mixing bowl, combine two eggs and vanilla extract and whisk vigorously. Add melted coconut oil and continue whisking until well combined.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and fold gently. Add 1 cup nut milk and continue to mix and fold. Be careful not to over mix! You do not want gooey pancakes.
- Continue to add milk until you reach your desired consistency. I prefer my batter to be thick, slightly runny, but not too pourable – like a thick smoothie. I’ve usually needed 1 1/2 cups to 1 3/4 cups of nut milk.
- Spread ghee or coconut oil on hot griddle. Using 1/4 cup measure, scoop batter onto the griddle. You want your pancakes to be on the flatter side. The thicker they are the longer it will take to cook. Don’t over-crowd the pan…it makes flipping harder!
- When you start to see little bubbles on the top, it’s usually a sign that it’s time to flip the pancake. Flip pancakes and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
- When finished put on a plate and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes.
