In a large bowl, whisk all ingredients together, until smooth. (Batter should be the consistency of typical pancake batter. If it's too thick, add a little more milk. Don't add too much, or the pancakes will be too "wet".)
Preheat a lightly oiled large non-stick skillet on the stove over medium-low to medium heat. (See notes below on oil options.) Drop the batter onto the hot pan and form into circles. Cover with a lid (this is important!) and cook about 1.5-2 minutes, until bubbles start to form on the edges. Flip and cook, uncovered this time, for another 1.5-2 minutes, until browned on the other side. (I love this thin turner for easy flipping.) Repeat with the rest of the batter.
Serving size: 2 3-inch pancakes
- After further testing and reader feedback, this recipe was slightly updated on March 29, 2018 to make it even better! Above is the new version. The changes were adding avocado oil, reducing eggs by 1, and reducing almond milk slightly. So now, they are more flavorful and not egg-y. If you want the old version, use 6 eggs, 6-8 tbsp almond milk, and omit the avocado oil. The blog post was updated in 2022 to provide additional tips.
- For best flavor, fry the pancakes in ghee (clarified butter). Don't use butter, because it burns too easily. Otherwise, avocado oil is a great oil to use with neutral taste.
- Make sure you have blanched, finely ground almond flour. The pancakes will be gritty if you use almond meal, ground almonds, or any other type.
