These almond flour pancakes produce the ultimate fluffy hotcakes with just a hint of maple flavor. They taste so good that I don’t even miss non-keto pancakes!

Amanda has tried dozens of iterations of almond flour pancakes. But no matter how fine the almond flour, they always come out gritty and crumbly. We take breakfast food seriously around here, so we agreed that we wouldn’t settle for shoddy pancakes.

During my last trip to the east coast, she finally tackled the grittiness problem. I remember her excitement over Facetime when she told me she figured out how to make almond flour pancakes that were fluffy and grit-free!

The secret to amazing almond flour pancakes

Your blender is key: She used our tried-and-true Vitamix blender to pulverize that almond flour down into a smooth, creamy, fluffy batter. Then she added a hint of maple extract for the quintessential breakfast flavor with no syrup required.

Our kids liked these keto pancakes so much that she prepared a big batch and froze them for easy reheating later. They heat perfectly in the toaster oven on busy mornings when the kids get tired of eggs. (And after having scrambled eggs for about three years straight, our son was happy to change things up.) To freeze almond flour pancakes, simply pop them in a zip-top freezer bag with parchment between each layer so they don’t stick together.

Add a schmear of butter or low-carb jam to these almond flour pancakes for a simple high-fat breakfast. If you have extra time, though, try swapping them for the griddle cakes in our keto McGriddle recipe for a brunch-worthy treat!

The BEST Fluffy Almond Flour Pancakes

These keto almond flour pancakes create perfectly buttery, fluffy cakes with under 4 net carbs — all with almond flour! Totally easy and kid-friendly!

prep time: 5 minscook time: 25 minstotal time: 30 mins

ingredients:

  • 2 cups fine almond flour (here’s the brand we used)

  • 8 tablespoons grass-fed butter, gently melted

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (our favorite) or melted coconut oil

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 4 eggs

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract (optional but highly recommended) (what we used)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 tablespoons Lakanto golden (or birch xylitol)

  • Coconut oil for greasing (our favorite)

instructions

  1. In a blender (we used our Vitamix), combine all ingredients and blend until fully combined. Your batter will be pretty thick -- that’s a good thing!

  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium low heat. Allow your batter to rest in the blender container for 5 minutes while your pan heats up.

  3. Add enough coconut oil to coat the pan.

  4. When oil has melted, add three silver-dollar sized dollops of batter to your pan. Cook until the edges look more matte and firmed up (about 3 minutes). You won’t see bubbles like you would on a non-keto pancake, so watch closely.

  5. Gently check the undersides of your pancakes. When they look golden on the bottom, flip and cook for an additional minute, or until golden.

  6. Repeat steps 3-5 until you run out of batter.

  7. Serve almond flour pancakes warm, or cool completely and store covered in your fridge or freezer with parchment in between each layer.
