Paleo Pancakes! There should be a song and a dance that goes with this post — just because helloooo it’s pancakes! You know that staple breakfast item that everyone seems to think is part of a healthy-balanced breakfast. Well, these are healthier than your average SAD pancake {and way yummier} but they’re filling! So they’re really all you need for breakfast. Unless you want to add bacon, because you should always add bacon.


So why pancakes? It seems a bit out of the norm. for me — but really, what is the norm. around here? Exactly. I love pancakes and I have this obsession with maple syrup that I’ve developed recently. So any excuse to have it and blog about it — I’m there! These pancakes are So. Good — they have the right texture for a pancake and they’re easy to make. My favorite part about these is how quick they are to make. Seriously, 15 – 20 minutes and you can have a batch cooked up!

And I know there are chocolate chips in these guys, but feel free to just have them plain or mix in some fruit {hello blueberries!} or both!

Oh and isn’t the plate adorable? I spent some of my TJ Maxx Holiday gift card on some new blogging goodies and this plate screamed “take me home” and for $2.99 I was SO there! I’m in love and there’s a matching bowl! — which I’m sure you’ll see wicked soon!


Paleo Pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 12-16
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ Chocolate Chips or favorite fruit {optional}
  • Fat of Choice {ghee, butter, bacon fat, etc.}
  1. Combine all of your ingredients except your fat of choice into a bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet with your fat of choice.
  3. Once your pans heated use your tablespoon measure and scoop your pancakes into your pan {my pan holds 4 at a time}.
  4. Cook for a few minutes on one side -- you'll start to see a few bubbles on the top and if you lift the edge up with your spatula it should be a pretty golden brown color.
  5. Flip and finish cooking.
  6. Continue cooking until all of your batter is used up -- to keep your cooked pancakes warm, place a piece of aluminum foil over the top of them!
  7. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!


Enjoy these and don’t forget — breakfast for dinner is the best dinner ever.

    I just made these this morning and they were great – my kids ate them right up. I cut the recipe in half and it worked perfectly.

    Thanks Liz for the yummy recipe!! Since I cannot have almonds and have a mild sensitivity to egg yolk, I replaced the almond flour with a 1/4 cup sunflower seed flour and 1/2 cup pecan meal plus 1 tsp psyllium husk powder and removed 2 of the yolks. They turned out great and were delicious.
