Finally! I’m sharing a recipe for the fluffiest paleo pancakes! I have been working on perfecting paleo pancakes for what seems like forever now. I wanted my recipe to call for as few ingredients as possible AND still taste like real pancakes. A pretty tough task when you’re trying to make pancakes that are both grain-free and dairy-free. This recipe for simple paleo pancakes makes seven small, fluffy, and filling pancakes – enough to feed 2-3 hungry people!

It only took me three years of gluten-free food blogging, to share a recipe for paleo pancakes. I finally feel like a legit food blogger. In my mind, there are certain recipes every food blogger must master within their niche to be considered legit at what they do: chocolate cake (not to brag but… mine is the best), banana bread, brownies, cookies (I have a bunch in my dessert section!) and pancakes. Is there anything I’m missing?

I’m hoping that these paleo pancakes will give me the blog street cred I’ve been working for…

You can fill ’em up with chocolate chips, blueberries – whatever you want. Likewise, have fun with the toppings. Some possibilities: grassfed butter, maple syrup, chopped fruit or nuts.

One strong suggestion… if you’re against using a non-stick pan or griddle… I HIGHLY recommend this steel crepe pan. I don’t know how I’ve gone without it in my kitchen. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made (right up there with my Instant Pot) and the crepe pan is super affordable. Season it really well just once and you’ve got what’s basically non-stick steel. It’s way better than a cast-iron skillet. Yep. I went there.

Alright, get the six ingredients listed below and then get started on making and eating these pancakes!

  • Pour ¼ cup batter onto a crepe pan over low heat.
  • Once the batter begins to bubble at the top, flip it over and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat until the batter is done.

    These were amazing!!! I followed the recipe perfectly and blended in my NutriBullet. I didn’t notice any after taste. So happy I found this. My 2.5yr old daughter loved them. Thank you 🙂

        Great recipe, I used a waffle maker and completely forgot to add baking powder but they still turned out well. Would love to know if it can be substituted with almond milk and what the quantity should be pls?

    Just finished eating these pancakes! They are soooo good! I have tried many paleo pancake recipes and they always turned out hard to cook through. These ones are great!!!! I followed the recipe as directed and I didn’t get any weird taste from the baking soda. Thank you very much for this recipe!

    Your hamburger Paleo buns are outta of this world yummy, so I have been looking through your recipes & discovered the pancake recipe. I can’t use Almond flour due to a family member is allergic so I tweaked it with Sorghum Flour ( & your list of: Tapioca & Coconut Flour, eggs, etc.). I added 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar when I added the baking soda. I also didn’t have the Coconut Milk (can) so I used Coconut yogurt & coconut milk (carton). I added vanilla extract & this recipe is a major keeper!!! I want to try your Naan bread & other recipes next. Thank you so much for your hard work in developing Paleo/gluten recipes. 🙂

    These were so fluffy and delicious! My husband is so resistant to paleo Foods. But I made these, and he loved them! My kids devoured them. I also made these for guests and they loved them.

    Nobody could tell they weren’t regular pancakes! I call that a win in my book! Thank you for the recipe!

    This is by far my favorite grain free pancake! I also love that it doesn’t require an array of specialty ingredients that I’d have to make a trip to the store to get. So simple, yet so wonderful! They’re also a big hit with my husband who hints frequently that I should make them. I did cut the amount of baking soda in half. Thanks for sharing this!

    We live a nomad life and love the convenience (and small footprint) of prepared mixes. Before I was Grain Free I used to mix my own Bisquick in bulk.

    And Paleo Pancakes are a staple for me- satisfying thay bread craving wonderfully.

    Have you considered a pantry mix for paleo pancakes where we just add liquids? It would need powdered eggs. We could scoop out 1-cup mix portions and add water. Or have the mix amount for 1can coconut milk..

    You’d be a Paleo superhero if this could be done.

    And yes, I’ve used many of your recipes and have massive respect for your contribution to the culture.

      Ann, that’s so great to hear! I haven’t tried this as a pantry mix – but that’s a great idea! I’ll have to add this to my list of things to try and figure out – I’ve actually never worked with powdered eggs. Appreciate the kind words 🙂

    As a chef and mom I try many recipies to try healthier, but tasty options for my kiddo and family. I have to say this is a fantastic easy pancake sure to please even the most scrutinizing palate. My 4 year old is a pancake lover and approves of this recipe.

    These pancakes were great, except for a taste I couldn’t identify which is probably the baking soda (given other peoples comments.)
