There are few things in the world I love more than keto pancakes. And, new ideas for them make me a little giddy! Let’s just say I’m loving this paleo almond flour pancakes recipe right now.
My husband has been out of town all week on a work trip, so it’s just me and my little girls, with some help from my mom. He’s not the biggest fan of breakfast for dinner, but the rest of us love it.
It has been the perfect excuse to do some testing for my upcoming recipe for keto crepes (coming soon!), and of course, this keto almond flour pancake recipe.
Keto Pancakes with Almond Flour
I already have two popular recipes for keto pancakes on the blog – coconut flour pancakes with cream cheese and low carb pancakes with almond flour & coconut flour. These crepes are really good, too. I hope you’ll try them if you haven’t already!
No matter what kind of flour I use, though, I always have someone asking me for a substitution. Some people are allergic to coconuts, some to almonds, and some just have one or the other type of flour on hand.
Hey, I get it! And I’m here for you, friends. Whether you want keto pancakes with almond flour, with coconut flour, both, with dairy or without, I have you covered.
This almond flour pancake recipe completes the trifecta. We have one recipe with coconut flour, one recipe with almond flour and coconut flour, and now this one, keto pancakes with almond flour only.
So whenever I get questions about swaps, you can decide which flour (or two!) you want to use. They all make delicious keto pancakes.
How many carbs in almond flour pancakes? How many calories in almond flour pancakes? These are also questions I get a lot. Every recipe has the nutrition info on the recipe card. But just for comparison, here are the calories and carbs in keto pancakes, listed per pancake…
- Keto pancakes with almond flour (the recipe below): 87 calories, 1.3g net carbs
- Coconut flour pancakes with cream cheese: 65 calories, 1g net carbs
- Low carb pancakes with almond flour and coconut flour: 134 calories, 1.5g net carbs
- Low carb flaxseed pancakes: 74 calories, 1g net carb
- Keto chaffles: 200+ calories, 2-3g net carbs… but way more filling than a single pancake, of course!
Ingredients for an Easy Almond Flour Pancake Recipe
The ingredients for almond flour pancakes are similar to my other recipe that has both almond and coconut flour. But, the ratios are different because we don’t have the super absorbent coconut flour.
Here is what you’ll need:
- Blanched finely ground almond flour
- Erythritol (or other sweetener)
- Baking powder
- Sea salt
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Avocado oil
- Vanilla extract (optional)
As always, there are several substitution options when making keto pancakes with almond flour.
Coconut sugar is fine if you are paleo and don’t mind the sugar content. I haven’t tried maple syrup or honey, since we don’t eat sugar, but it will probably be okay from a texture standpoint.
Check my sweetener guide for more information on low carb sweeteners.
I used almond milk because it’s most likely the kind of milk you like if you want to make paleo almond flour pancakes. But, if you prefer coconut milk beverage or even regular dairy milk for non-paleo, feel free to use any kind. The latter will add some carbs, though.
Avocado oil ensures that the keto pancakes are not too dry, and has a neutral taste. You can use another type of oil if you want to. Just make sure it’s neutral tasting to avoid any weird flavors in your almond flour pancakes!
How To Make Pancakes With Almond Flour
Making keto pancakes with almond flour is quick and easy. There isn’t much to the process, and it’s no different from any other pancake recipe.
Whisk all the ingredients together, until smooth. And there’s your almond flour pancake batter!
Next, heat a pan with a little oil over medium to low heat. Pour circles of batter onto the pan. I used a 1/8-cup measuring spoon to get the right size for 3-inch pancakes.
Cook for a minute or two, until bubbles form on the edges, then flip and repeat on the other side.
Storing Paleo Almond Flour Pancakes
There are three options for storing paleo almond flour pancakes. You can keep them in the fridge, freeze them, or even make a dry almond flour pancake mix.
Store Almond Flour Pancakes in the Fridge
I usually make a big batch of almond flour pancakes on the weekend, and just store it in the fridge in glass containers. They taste perfectly fine reheated and last about a week. Reheat in the microwave if you’re in a rush, or in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Can You Freeze Almond Flour Pancakes?
You can definitely freeze paleo almond flour pancakes! I do it all the time. They can last for months in there.
Simply place them in an airtight container or freezer bag, removing as much air as possible.
Sometimes frozen pancakes can get stuck together. Usually, I can just pry them apart, but if you want to be on the safe side, you can store them with pieces of parchment paper between them.
Reheat frozen keto pancakes in the oven at 350 degrees, until warm. You can also thaw them in the fridge first if you’re planning ahead and want to shorten the heating time later.
Pre-Made Almond Flour Pancake Mix
Making a keto pancake mix means you can make this almond flour pancake recipe for one, for two, or for any number of people that you want. Yay!
Of course, you can also adjust the number of servings on the recipe card. But, I figured that it would be handy to know how to make almond flour pancake mix that’s ready to go.
To make the keto pancake mix, change the servings on the recipe card to 16. Combine all the dry ingredients and store in an airtight bag or container in the pantry.
When you are ready to make your paleo almond flour pancakes using the mix, this is the ratio for 2 servings:
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp dry almond flour pancake mix
- 1 egg
- 2.5 tbsp almond milk
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
You can multiply that out by as many servings as you want! Two servings is the minimum because for one you’d need 1/2 an egg, which is hard to measure.
So, make these keto pancakes with almond flour for yourself, for your family, or for a crowd. My kids love them, my non-keto parents adore them, and I think your loved ones will, too!
