Eggnog Paleo Pancakes (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free)


These grain-free eggnog pancakes need to be on your Christmas morning menu!

Paleo Eggnog Pancakes

They’re festive and filling and best of all, allergy-friendly! This pancake recipe is gluten-free, grain-free and paleo-friendly. They taste just like regular pancakes! Top them with eggnog or maple syrup or better yet, both!

You can use dairy-free eggnog in this recipe if you want or use regular eggnog – that’s fine too! If you want it to be truly paleo-friendly, then skip the store and make your own eggnog. Whatever nog you decide to use, make these little flapjacks this month!

Paleo Eggnog Pancakes

Pancake Sundays have become a thing at the Thomas household and these days, I am all about experimenting with different pancake flavor combinations. As of 2017, I have several pancake recipes on the blog and it makes me so happy to add this eggnog pancake recipe to the list! It’s the perfect December pancake. When I think of the perfect holiday breakfast, these eggnog pancakes are the first thing that come to mind.

Who needs maple syrup when you can drizzle eggnog on your eggnog pancakes?! Just kidding, don’t forget the syrup – you’ll want that too 🙂

Paleo Eggnog Pancakes

You can top these pancakes with the crushed nuts of your choice: walnuts, pecans, almonds. Or you can make these even more decadent by adding CHOCOLATE CHIPS to the pancakes! I’ve had to stop adding chocolate chips to pancakes and muffins because Tony (my 14-month-old) will pick them out and only eat the chocolate. If I’m being honest, watching him do that makes me proud. He is my son through and through… but, you know, since I’m a mother and all I do want him eating more than just chocolate.

These pancakes are a breakfast treat that I can get on board with feeding my family. They’re made with grain free flours like almond flour, coconut flour and tapioca (or arrowroot) flour. Yes, they do call for eggnog, obviously, but there are healthy-ish eggnog options out there these days. I think this month is all about balance – eating well, but also treating yourself. And this my friends, is definitely a treat that I hope you’ll enjoy 🙂

    This has nothing to do with this particular recipe but I couldn’t find where else to post it. I just wanted to say that I recently stumbled across your website and so many of your recipes look beyond yummy! I’ve been on a paleo diet for 4 years now and not many recipes look worth making (I only follow a select few paleo book authors….. I’m picky). Anyhow, thank you for your awesome looking recipes, for this great website, and your time and energy put into all of it! I will definitely be making many of your recipes that I have pinned on Pinterest and/or printed out to add to my paleo collection. Thanks!!

    We made these for breakfast after our first snow clean-up. They really hit the spot. They are so filling we each had just two, so no worries about the small amount of eggnog 🙂

    Just finished eating these and they were delicious! Thick and fluffy, and full of eggnog yumminess! I used’s (fairly) new Paleo baking mix, same amount total, and the family loved them. Thanks for another wonderful, healthy recipe!

    Even though I don’t care for egg nog, will give this a go as I do like pancakes and the recipes I have tried have been yummy. Thanks for experimenting with different flavors!

        Did this! and it is good. I made a trial run before making it for friends for our Christmas Eve brunch. I didn’t have time to make paleo egg nog so used the “bad” one from the store-maybe it made the batter sweeter??? But I ate most of the first batch to make sure it was good enough for friends 🙂 and am freezing a couple of these to see how that works out. But for Christmas Eve brunch, it was eaten up without complaints and non-Paleo friends enjoyed it as well. Bonus – since I don’t drink egg nog, the left over egg nog I had was used as a creamer for coffee and so none left now! Thank you

      • Mareen says

        I tried these and they are good. I did a trial run first as I wasn’t sure, and I used store bought egg nog as I was too lazy to make it. I think the pancakes turned out sweeter based on the store bought egg nog, but no complaints from me. I am freezing a few of these to see how that works out. I then made it for Christmas eve brunch with friends and nothing left over. Friends also used the left over egg nog as creamer for their coffee!

          Mareen, I’m so happy to hear that you and your friends liked the pancakes! I’ve tried freezing them and they’re great so hopefully that will be the case for you – let me know! Thanks for letting me know how they turned out for you 🙂
