[RECIPE] Kid-Approved Paleo Pancakes With Almond Flour


We were getting hit with some rather gnarly winter storms up in Northern Idaho, so the trips to the grocery story were quite limited.  This means mama was running low on a lot of ingredients; however, we have a tradition in our house --- PANCAKE SATURDAYS!

Using a smorgasbord of ingredients which we had on hand, this recipe was formed.  And it was approved by our twins, the Gillies who at the time were eight-years old. 

Now, I should tell you that these pancakes are gluten free!  They are not technically "paleo" unless you remove the dairy and substitute with coconut oil.  You do you, boo.  I didn't have coconut oil, but I did have one stick of butter in our fridge so that's what I used. 



Here's the list of the ingredients!  I should have named these "kitchen sink pancakes"... but, alas, we did not.  

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of grass fed butter (or coconut oil), melted
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup of brown rice flour (or tapicoa flour)
  • 1 cup of almond flour 
  • 2 scoops of collagen peptides (optional!)
  • 1/2 cup of almond butter, melted
  • 1 tsp of vanilla 
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp of salt 

Now what? 

I like to have as minimal dishes dirty... so I tend to put all the wet ingredients in a large measuring cup and mix!  Then mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Once both are mixed well, I add the wet ingredients to the mixed dry ingredients.  

Using a greased griddle on medium heat, scoop out a spoonful of mixture carefully and make the pancakes like usual!  You got this! 



Every member in our family likes to have different toppings on their pancakes, so, I'll let you choose which one you'd prefer!

  • Hubster:  dark molasses with a tbsp of grass fed butter
  • Mama (me):  melted almond butter with blueberries 
  • Little Man:  classic with a dab of butter and maple syrup
  • Little Miss:  local raw honey


You can't go wrong either way!  We loved these "kitchen sink" pancakes so much, the hubster made me stop eating and jot down ALL the ingredients before finishing my plate!


If you choose to make them, I'd love to hear how they taste for you... so shoot me a DM + fill me in!
