Almond flour pancakes - Dr. Axe

Almond Flour Pancakes Recipe

  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


My healthy but still delicious (!) pancakes are grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free.


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, for cooking


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients, except the coconut oil, and mix together well with a wooden spoon — until a batter is formed.
  2. Over medium heat, heat the coconut oil in a large skillet. Drop nearly ¼ cup of batter onto the skillet, cooking until bubbles appear on the pancake surface, or for approximately 3 minutes. When bubbles appear, flip the pancakes with a rubber spatula, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  3. Top with fresh berries and some maple syrup.


Topping ideas are endless. I prefer fresh berries, nuts, butter or ghee, whipped coconut cream, a little cinnamon, stevia, raw honey, a dab of maple syrup, blackstrap molasses or your other favorite, healthy toppings.
