The Best Paleo Pancakes

Finally! I’m sharing a recipe for the fluffiest paleo pancakes! I’ve 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!

“After trying countless pancake recipes, this is by far the best grain free pancake recipe i have come across. The pancakes are moist and springy and hold together well. Not too coconutty either as I used unsweetened almond milk with vanilla instead of coconut milk. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!”

Paleo Pancake Ingredients

Grab these 6 ingredients and you’ll be on your way to eating delicious paleo-friendly pancakes!

  • Almond Flour: blanched almond flour is best. Here’s the brand I use.
  • Tapioca Flour or Arrowroot Flour
  • Coconut Flour: just a bit!
  • Baking Soda
  • Eggs: I use 2 eggs
  • Coconut Milk: must be canned and full fat

“Best easy, few ingredients pancake recipe I found. I was almost giving up trying to make GF grain free pancakes when I found your recipe. They are truly a treat. Thanks!”

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

    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.

    • My Heart Beets says

      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.

    Absolutely amazing! I love your recipes and this one will definitely be a staple for a family weekend breakfast. I have made this recipe using tapioca flour and today, with arrowroot flower. My preference is arrowroot flower. Tapioca flour has it’s place in some recipes but it can lead to a gummy texture, mainly in the middle of whatever it is I’m making. Arrowroot flour made these taste just like the real thing. My husband, who would put extra gluten on food (his running joke) was convinced these were the real thing. I think I’ll start using arrowroot flour for all of my recipes that call for tapioca. Ashley, do they always interchange so well? Thank you for your amazing recipes!

    • My Heart Beets says

      Thank you!! I’m so happy to hear that you like the recipe 🙂 And yes – I’ve found they’re interchangeable in nearly any recipe so use what you prefer/have available 🙂

  12. Jeanette McQueeney says

    Fabulous and fluffy. The kids loved them and the protein and fiber made me very happy to feed them to them. We’ve a kid with Celiac disease, so gluten freedom is important, but many GF trades can be worse for you than the original and kids don’t always love what’s great for them. Anywhooooo these hit all the marks and we love them. Thanks you!

    Have tried many recipes and keep coming back to yours. Best one we’ve found. 🙂 thank you!! Today I added lemon peel and lemon juice (less water) along with lots of blueberries…..deeeelllliiish. Oh also…just in case anyone doesn’t have arrowroot or tapioca starch…whole root cassava works just as well. Have even added gelatin the past 2 times and they worked well. The do seem to brown quicker, and I’m not sure if it’s the cassava or gelatin causing this.. But I like them like that!

    What a fabulous pancake recipe! You really cannot tell these are Paleo when you make them! I added blueberries to the batter, and it added a nice hunt of sweetness too! My husband didn’t even know these were grain-free and dairy-free! By far, this is the best pancake recipe I have tried!

  18. JG says

    Great recipe—thanks! I made this recipe using a griddle and had a hard time getting the pancakes to rise. Since your recipe calls for only baking soda, I added a splash of apple cider vinegar and that helped a lot.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how light and fluffy these were! And I didn’t realize they didn’t have sugar until I had made the first one; mini chocolate chips and cacao nibs were added so the sugar was not missed! Fabulous recipe that might be my new go to.

    Easy. Fast. Fluffy. My 7 year old loved them. He said” if this is a healthier choice than I can do healty every morning.
    Mine were not as pretty but I will definately make them again.
    Has anyone tried to freeze them? Or can batter be refrigerated?

  21. Julia says

    5 stars
    I love these pancakes! They’re the only grain-free pancake I’ve tried that actually looks and feels like a “real” pancake. I added some vanilla and cinnamon to my batter (and some extra liquid to thin it a little), and served topped with a vanilla cinnamon banana puree as a topping. Quick and easy! Definitely a keeper for me.

  22. Sandy says

    Made the recipe as described and it came out like biscuit batter, the pancakes took FOREVER to cook on low, never bubbled, and had a very bland flavor. I’ll try again with new ingredients and see if it makes a difference…but, not very high hopes. Waaah : (

    My husband (who is not grain-free) now prefers these over traditional pancakes! These are a definite keeper. I can not tell you how much we love these pancakes! Thank you. (-:

  26. K says

    Any time I see a grain-free recipe for pancakes that says “like REAL pancakes” I always hope “Yes, maybe this is THE ONE!” But like all the others, it’s not. Comments on here saying that there was a strong baking soda taste were correct. I even added in chocolate chips to cover it a bit (still there!) and followed some tips I saw in the comments–I mixed the dry ingredients together then ran them through a mesh strainer (twice!) to make sure everything was well incorporated, added a bit of vanilla and cinnamon, like I used to with regular pancakes, and folded the egg whites at the end to keep the pancakes fluff(ier). I will give them that: they stayed thick, and folding in the egg whites did help most of them from getting too dense (but never fluffy like a real pancake). Then again, mine definitely didn’t come out like the video batter–it was closer to a cookie dough consistency.

    Of the recipes and mixes I’ve tried, it was the best one so far in terms of texture and thickness. But don’t be fooled into ever thinking a grain-free recipe is going to taste the same as the real thing–these have the same taste that almost all grain-free batters wind up with, and like others I’m just going to have to get used to it.

    I used this receipe…. IT IS THE BEST!
    I used vitamix to blend all ingridents and let it rest before cooking. It’s better than traditional pancakes and I don’t feel bloated after. Texture was a bit crispy outside and soft inside which I love. We served with pure maple syrup and diced mango. Boyfriend LOVED IT!
    He was so impressived as I was. THANK YOU!

    I made these pancakes and really liked them! I served them with pastured butter, fresh blackberries, a small amount of 100% maple syrup and a dollop of the full-fat, creamy part of canned coconut milk. Yummy!

    I doubled the recipe, then added cinnamon & frozen blueberries. My sweetie & I loved them! It was great having leftovers for a snack later on as well. Thank you for your dedication to health & for sharing your successes with us all. I’m still digging your recipe book. 🙂

    Having a home bound husband who has had many health issues over the years, it has been hard to find things that he can eat and, more importantly, enjoy.
    Well, this recipe is a hit at our house! I did add a dash of salt, used the arrowroot, and used baking powder. I know that it is not easy to come up with all these recipes through much time, effort, money wasted in failed experiments, etc. So I say “hurrah” for you! You are what we call in the south “a God sent”!

  36. Becky says

    These are great. I also subbed baking powder because I don’t care about a little cornstarch, but the fluffy texture is SPOT ON. Cook low and slow. Best Paleo pancake yet.

  37. Suzette says

    Flirting with paleo recipes so tried these pancakes this morning and they turned out wonderfully! Will try the other suggestions here to make them fluffier but overall the taste and texture didn’t make me miss wheat flour at all! Will be sure to check out your other recipes.

  38. Maggie says

    These pancakes are the best! We have always loved banana pancakes, so I added a teaspoon of cinnamon and chopped banana, and they were wonderful. We definitely prefer them over our old recipe.

    I picked 18 pounds of beautiful blueberries yesterday, so pancakes were a MUST today!! This is by far the BEXT paleo pancake recipe I have found… So glad I doubled the recipe. It made 7 HUGE pancakes… enough for Hubby and I for today and then to reheat tomorrow 🙂

  40. Sue says

    If you love the taste of baking soda, these are the perfect pancake. It’s just like a mouth full of baking soda. Wow, nothing quite like it.

  41. Kyla says

    These pancakes are great, just like all of your recipes. One thing I noticed though is that there isn’t enough acid in the recipe to neutralize the baking soda. This is probably why so many people have a soapy baking soda aftertaste. A lot of people don’t seem to realize that when you are using baking soda The recipe has to have an acidic ingredient like lemon juice, vinegar, buttermilk, molasses or chocolate in it. I used baking powder instead and it turned out great.

    • Melissa Johnston says

      I accidentally used baking power vs soda. I’ll blame my new contacts. 😉 I also separated the eggs and whipped the whites. Then folded them in. Turned out great. The 3 year old kept asking for more. I’ll need to double the recipe next time.

    • My Heart Beets says

      Mel, thank you! I just added that section (everything on my website is gluten-free but not everyone knows that) so I need to tag all of my recipes – just so behind!

    These are the best gluten free pancakes I’ve ever had… and maybe the best pancakes ever, period! They are so good! I added an overripe banana and decreased the coconut milk a tad to keep the consistency right. I topped them with whipped coconut cream and fresh strawberries. OMG. I want to eat them every day from now on. THANK YOU! I wish there was a way to post a picture, because they actually turned out beautifully browned and round, too, which is hard to come by in most grain free pancakes in my experience!

    • Cayla says

      I had to cook them on low heat though, because the middles took longer to cook than regular pancakes. Just an FYI to people about to make these!

  43. Nannette Scrase says

    Just started reading your blog. I’m 65 and have become lactose and gluten intolerant.🙁 Have to learn new ways to eat and cook. Wish I had done this years ago. Thanks for the help and direction. Nannette

  44. Susan says

    5 stars
    Oh my gosh – thank you!!! This is my new favorite pancake recipe! It works great even with my “budget” level almond flour (which is more like almond meal, not the super expensive, fine-ground blanched almond flour).

    I do agree that it has a baking soda taste, but I DON’T CARE!!! My tummy is doing cartwheels of joy!

    Now back to the kitchen for seconds…

  45. Theresa Singh says

    I had to follow your link to the crepe pan out of curiosity! Do you know if it works well for making roti? We have a legit Indian roti pan and I’ve been asked several times over the years by friends and family where to find a “roti pan” or if they can just use their cast iron skillet? This seems like it’s pretty close in comparison and sells for a reasonable price!

    • My Heart Beets says

      Hi Theresa! I can’t say for 100% certain because we’re a gluten-free household and I haven’t tried making regular roti on it, but I’m sure it’d work! I use mine for all types of gluten-free flatbreads. This is like 100x lighter than the cast-iron kind that my parents use and when my mom came to visit us she asked me to get one for her too (so I did). 🙂

  46. Randie Anderson says

    The first time we made this recipe I followed it to the letter, which resulted in an AMAZING, fluffy texture and wonderful flavor -until we got to the aftertaste, which was very overwhelming and metallic. I assumed it was too much baking soda, but to give the creator credit, maybe it was the brand of baking soda I used. The second time I made the recipe I used a different brand of baking soda, reduced it to 1/2 teaspoon, and added 3/4 teaspoon of lemon juice to the recipe to activate the baking soda. The revised recipe created a wonderful, fluffy pancake with an amazing flavor, and won rave reviews from my son, who said these are his new favorite meal! Thanks for helping our family to have delicious, healthy meals!

  48. Jenna says

    My three kids and I just finished a double batch of these and LOVED them! I’ve tried so many paleo pancake recipes and they’ve never turned out as “normal” as these (usually really flat and take forever to cook). I took the advice from another comment and beat the egg whites, separately, before beating them into the batter. We’ll definitely make these again!

  49. Casie says

    Like someone else said, mine weren’t nearly as pretty as yours, but WOW! Awesome recipe! I had an after dinner craving and these more than hit the spot. Halved the recipe for a quick personal snack and had everyone in the house wanting pancakes by the time they were done! Will be making double the recipe tomorrow.

    Thank you for restoring my ability to eat nummy, guilt free (well…aside from the maple syrup the poor things were drowning in) pancakes!

  50. Sarah says

    Can I substitute cassava flour for almond flour? I live in Brasil where almond flour is not easy to get and very expensive. But they have a lot of cassava flour. Cassava flour is not tapioca…
    Most of your recipes for baking use almond flour. Could I substitute cassava flour for almond flour in most recipes?

    • Erin says

      Better off subbing cassava flour for wheat flour in a traditional pancake recipe. It is a 1:1 substitute. I use it as a sub in baked goods, breads, tortillas, etc.
      Can’t find cassava flour where I live. Always have to order online.
      On another note- Happy National Pancake Day. Will be trying these pancakes tonight for breakfast for dinner!

    I was feeling in the pancake mood yesterday so I made a batch of these for myself. They were delicious. Thank you once more Ashley your recipies are fantastic.

  52. Julie Crowe says

    I’ve made A LOT of different paleo pancake recipes over the past couple years and this one is hands-down my favorite! I made 3 large, thick pancakes with this recipe and the texture and thickness both were absolutely beautiful!! This is now THE pancake recipe at my house. Thank you!! 🙏

  53. eva says

    Hi Ashley,
    Can I make these with just the almond and coconut flour? I don’t have any. I make it exactly like this except I have added sprouted wheat flour instead of tapioca or arrowroot. please let me know. thanks

  54. Kathie says

    5 stars
    Made these for breakfast today and was pleased. I used dried almond milk pulp instead of flour so the batter was quite thick, but very tasty with a nice texture. I think I’ll double the batch next time and share with the kids. Always looking for something to do with that pulp.

  55. Ces says

    These paleo pancake is the best ever recipe!i added smashed banana & pinch of organic vanilla coz it taste a good flavor. light & fluffy! delicious. thumbs up.

  56. JJS says

    Winner, winner.. pancake…. well you know. What a great recipe. Thanks for doing the research and trial and error testing. Really great! definitely my go to for now on.

    Best paleo pancakes ever. I have been trying different recipes over the last couple years and this is the only one that we plan to make again. I also noticed a bit of a funky after taste but I know for a fact its my baking soda. Its old and i didnt use a blender. So some bites had more than others. This was a hit for the whole family! I’m really glad we stumbled upon your site!

  58. Kaye says

    Hi Ashley ,

    I’m really loving these and have made them twice. The only variation in my prep work is that I seperate my eggs and beat the whites into whipped light air before folding in the batter and I noticed the pancakes have a lighter texture and not dense. I changed no ingredients so 2 thumbs up and hubby is diabetic and can eat these no problem so he is happy. Much thanks !

  59. samuel says

    5 stars
    Loved the recipe. These have a great flavor. They were a little more dense than what I was expecting. Is there a way to lighten them a touch? Also, if I wanted to sub a couple of ripe bananas, what would you suggest? This version but banana would be the bomb!

  60. Chris says

    Hi. Thanks for the recipe. Just found your site and have bookmarked. We are new to the grain and Paleo and are enjoying finding a new way of eating.
    I made these pancakes yesterday morning for my daughter, she spit them out. I added a pinch of salt, vanilla, blueberry, and toasted pecans to the batter. Everything else I followed to the specs.
    She spit them out because she said they had a”sour” taste. I didn’t notice at first but when I went back and tasted, there was a very distinct bitter note on the finish of these pancakes. Once I noticed it, it stood out big time. Any ideas on this flavor? I was thinking it was the tapioca starch as we are new to this ingredient and seemed to be the only culprit. It is from Bob’s red Mill.
    As a side note. I made some other pancakes this morning with almond flour mainly with about 15percent coconut and no tapioca. She ate the whole plate.
    Any ideas????

      It could be the baking soda. I have cut it in half and I’m thinking of using just 1/4 tsp next time because these taste like baking soda.

      • Jill says

        I noticed a strong taste of baking soda as well. Loved how fluffy they were so will try again with less baking soda next time.

          A common baking mistake is not incorporating the baking soda in well enough. I do try to use a mesh strainer to ensure lump free baking soda. I used this recipe, and after the dry were mixed, I used the mesh strainer to be sure everything was incorporated very well. I didn’t want to reduce the soda, because you get so much lift from the product.

            • Michelle G says

              Hey everyone,

              The sour or metallic aftertaste that people are referencing is due to the baking soda in the recipe not having an acid (e.g. cream of tartar, Bakewell Cream, vinegar) to act against it. Do y’all remember in elementary school when we could make volcanoes with baking soda and vinegar? Yep, that’s leavening y’all!
              This is also where the leavening for your pancakes will come from as well. The egg, already listed in the recipe, also helps.
              Leaving baking soda on its own will almost always leave an undesirable flavor such as what you are experiencing.

              If you try this recipe again with say 2-1/2 tsp of baking powder (that might need to be adjusted. I’m just taking a guess) and omit the baking soda, you will find that funky flavor will not be there. If you don’t have baking powder and only baking soda, no worries, you can add an acid along with your baking soda to create the leavening and get rid of that afteraste.

              The usual measurement would be 2 parts cream of tartar (or Bakewell Cream… my favorite) to 1 part baking soda. Mix it together WELL — There. You just made your own DIY Baking Powder 😉

              Oh and FYI, I tried this myself with the baking soda and Bakewell Cream combo. I also did not have coconut flour so I added more Tapioca Starch to reach the proper consistency. The pancakes fluffed/lifted up well in my cast iron skillet and had absolutely no sour or metallic aftertaste.

              I hope this helps.

    I love you and your recipes better than all.the other paleo recipe sites! These pancakes are delicious, even though mine weren’t as beautiful as yours! They still tasted great. I must need a better pan as you suggested! You have the best, simple paleo recipes. I love your 2 ingredient roti and naan bread so much! They make the sting of going gluten free bearable! I do wish you’d develop a bread that I could slice for a sandwich, toast for breakfast and even eat by itself! Other than that, I just dont need any other cookbooks besides yours!
    Thanks for sharing your life and your recipes with everyone!

      I definitely agree! Love all your recipes because they are simple and easy ingredients to find in your pantry. That’s what makes them beautiful! I hate pancakes really I do, when when I used to eat gluten! But these pancakes are phenomenal and will be a staple in my diet! Thank you!
