The BEST Paleo Pancakes [VIDEO]

Pancakes should be fluffy, golden, and loaded with your favorite add-ins. I’m not kidding when I say these Paleo Pancakes are the real deal. They’re based off of my cinnamon crunch pancakes, and are really just the perfect paleo pancake recipe base, ever. They are paleo pancakes made with almond flour, are kid-friendly, freezer-friendly, and nobody will know their paleo! Guaranteed! These paleo pancakes are made gluten-free, grain-free, refined sugar free, and without banana. I make batches of the mix for my mom every time she comes to visit, and she’s not grain-free!

Paleo Pancakes Recipe with SyrupThe BEST Paleo Pancakes

I used to experiment a lot more with protein pancakes (with banana), 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.

Can you use almond meal instead of almond flour?

Yes. Almond flour is made from blanched almonds which have had the skins removed, and is ground more finely than almond meal, which typically still contains the skins and has a more coarse grind. Both will work, though I prefer almond flour!

What can you use instead of applesauce?

Pumpkin puree will work as a sub for the applesauce! 

Paleo Pancakes with almond flour

This recipe is tried and true, and is loved by so many of you! Read through the comments below for a glimpse of reader reactions! 

Is maple syrup allowed on paleo diet?

I drizzle these pancakes with good quality maple syrup! Maple syrup, in its natural, unprocessed form, is paleo and is a great alternative to white sugar. Always look for good quality, 100% pure maple syrup!
