The Best Paleo Pancakes

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

Dry Ingredients

  • 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)

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, preferably room temp, whisked
  • 1 large tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
  • 1-2 cups nut milk


  1. Preheat griddle to 350 F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine two eggs and vanilla extract and whisk vigorously. Add melted coconut oil and continue whisking until well combined.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. When finished put on a plate and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes.
