Fluffy Paleo Pancakes [VIDEO]

I used to experiment a lot more with protein pancakes, 2-ingredient pancakes, and so on. While I love those (and ate them everyday for like 3 months at one point), I wanted pancakes that actually TASTE and have the texture of real pancakes.

Fluffy Paleo Pancakes

I’m not kidding when I say these Fluffy Paleo Pancakes are the real deal. They’re based off of my cinnamon crunch pancakes, and are really just the perfect pancake base,Β ever.Β I make batches of the mix for my mom every time she comes to visit, and she’s not grain-free!

  • I made these THIS MORNING! They were delish (I added blueberries), and yes, fluffy!! I have tried several other recipes for paleo pancakes, and they were all too dense. These are perfect! I am adding this recipe to the breakfast and brinner rotation ASAP! THANK YOU Lexi!!!

    • Brilliant recipe, I agree. Didn’t know how to add my feedback to piggybacking on this one :). We make this weekly adding chopped apples. We use half arrowroot for somebody of the tapioca starch. Double the recipe for four people or leaves left overs for school lunch πŸ™‚ THANK YOU

  • These are the best pancakes I have ever made….Paleo or non-paleo. Perfect start to our snow day. We used apple strawberry gogo squeeze for the apple sauce since that is what I had on hand and it went well with blueberries. So good.

  • Not sure how much butter to add. It’s not in the ingredients but is in the instructions? Can u clarify? Thanks heaps.

  • These are my favorite paleo pancakes since I’ve started on this new way of eating in December! They were delicious! Next time I’m going to quadruple the recipe!

    There is no butter in the ingredients list but the directions say to melt the butter in a skillet and pour into the batter. How much butter do you use? Help!

    This is THE best pancake recipe ever! I go overboard on the blueberries but then again, is that possible? It is the most requested breakfast at my house. LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

  • I made these tonight for dinner and my husband raved that these were the best pancakes he’s ever had. Even my 15 year old daughter liked them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  • Made these this morning and forgot the baking powder (oops). They were amazing!! I did blueberry and chocolate chip and both were awesome. Even my boyfriend who hates normal pancakes said they were decent. I had leftovers reheated them a couple days later and they were still great!

  • I made these yesterday and they were so delicious. Thank you for the recipe! I was wondering if anyone has ever used this recipe and made waffles?

  • Hey Lexi,

    I made these amazing pancakes all the time! Love them! I just wanted to share two yummy variations I’ve made lately. I took your recipe and added finely chopped cranberries and orange zest for a cranberry bread version. And the version I love most is just replacing the applesauce with pumpkin and adding pumpkin pie spice. Two fall favorites!

  • These look great but I am just wondering if you think a chia or flax egg would work as egg replacement or if anyone has tried?

    Reply
  • These might be the best pancakes I have ever made! I used arrowroot flour in place of the tapioca. I used different fillings, like bananas, chocolate chips, etc. and cooked them in coconut oil. My goodness they are amazing!

  • Just made this – wow! They are really good, fluffy and tasty. I also used Go Go Organic applesauce yum yum. Even non Paleo spouse was impressed. Thank you so much for a easy and great pancake recipe – finally. πŸ˜€

  • Oh my, these are perfect!!!
    Do you know if these freeze well? Would love to make a batch for a quick breakfast!

    Reply
  • These pancakes are great πŸ™‚ If I wanted them a little fluffier, would adding an extra teaspoon of baking powder do the trick? Or would that mess things up? Thanks!! πŸ™‚

  • I’ve been struggling with Gluten issues for the past two years – I found your web site recently and I really enjoy the simple recipes! I haven’t had pancakes in about two years! Thank you for the wonderful recipe. These are amazing – I added Blueberries to the mix. Taste Great! I almost ate all of the pancakes!

  • I’ve tried many paleo recipes for pancakes, mostly using bananas. While I love bananas, I use them so much that sometimes I want something else. These pancakes are incredible! I didn’t have tapioca flour, so I used arrowroot as others suggested. I made them with blueberries last night for dinner, and they tasted and looked like REAL pancakes. I saved the leftover batter and made some for breakfast and the batter held up fine overnight in the fridge. Not only are they delish, but they are very easy to turn over in the pan (unlike other paleo recipes). I don’t need to look any further for a great pancake recipe….this is it!

  • Hi Lexi! I love all of your clever recipes! Question – what baking powder do you use that is considered paleo? I use an aluminum free, potato based kind which is a better alternative to the corn based kind, in my opinion. Still, I would like to know if there is another option. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • Do you have a website you use to input recipe and get nutrition information for these? They are fantastic btw!! My husband even said they are the best “non-pancake pancakes” that I’ve made!!

  • I’ve tried making paleo pancakes before with okay results, but this recipe is fantastic! These pancakes taste and look like white-flour pancakes. But I was missing that extra buttery taste from the pancake, so next time, I’ll melt about a tablespoon of ghee and add it to the batter as well as add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, because I love insanely buttery, thick pancakes.

    However, the pancakes as is are amazing, and I’ll definitely make them again.

    Once again, how much butter? I would really like to try these, but there is no measurement for the amount of butter in the recipe.
    Thanks!

  • I also tried to make these and it did not come out like a batter, but just crumbles. Can you tell me why? It doesn’t seem to be enough liquid ingredients.

    • Tanya I had the same problem and was tempted to add some milk, but added some honey instead. I was wondering if it was because I couldn’t find tapioca flour and used a gluten free flour that had some tapioca in it.

      Reply
      • That’s definitely why. Your GF flour mix had other flours that would thicken the mixture! Tapioca flour is in most grocery stores at this point. Look for Bob’s Red Mill!

        Reply
  • These are the BEST! I have tried 4-5 different recipies and this is the BEST! I use lots of blueberries in them. Thank you for this recipe!

    Reply
  • I made these this morning and the taste was very very good but the batter was very very thick and I was tempted to use milk to think it a bit. I also could not find tapioca flour so I used a gluten free version that had some tapioca flour in it. Maybe this was why the batter was so thick?

    Reply
    • I’m fine with less than a teaspoon in the entire batch or there are brands without corn starch in them, but feel free to use a sub if you can’t tolerate it! Paleo is meant as a framework for eating, not a strict diet.

  • I had literally given up on GF and Paleo pancakes until spotting this recipe. These are absolutely wonderful, better than America’s Test Kitchen’s Paleo Perfected pancakes. Easily doubled the batch and everyone in the house gave them huge double thumbs up. Thank you for such a great recipe!

  • Ive made these pancakes a few times now and always the same result, they just don’t rise and they dont look like the picture. I thought maybe my baking powder was old and bought and used a new one but still no rise! I dont know where this could be going wrong everyone else seems to be having great success!

  • i made these this morning and they turned out perfect!!! i did have to make adjustments like i had to substitute the apple sauce for some fruity sugar free baby tube food coz we never have apple sauce in the pantry… and i had to cook it with coconut oil coz one of my daughters has an allergy to dairy…
    but OMG!!! hit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Good Morning Lexi,

    I made these amazing pancakes they were amazing! the whole family loves them! I have tried fancy variations replacing the applesauce with pumpkin and adding pumpkin pie spice. and to make this even more decadent I have topped it with whipped coco cream! Thank you for sharing and making my morning WOW!!! So hard to find recipes that are paleo and not meat and veggies…I am french and can not have these for breakfast…

    Reply
  • I just made these today and they were awesome !!! I finally found a pancake recipe that didn’t have to be tossed in the garbage. Thank you so much !!!

    Reply
  • Hey Lexi, going to try this out and I don’t have any applesauce on hand. Is there anything you might substitute for it? Is it only to sweeten the batter or is it a structural thing? I know not everything can be substituted in recipes. Thanks!
