The Best Vegan Almond Flour Pancakes

Sweet breakfasts are a staple in our household. We’ve always been a family of waffles, pancakes, and French toast, and rarely do we go the savory route.

If you are after a twist on the classic pancakes, this vegan almond flour pancake recipe is a winner (inspired by classic almond flour pancakes).

Now, most pancake recipes call for white or wheat flour, but not these- we use a combination of almond flour and oat flour, which not only tastes better, but is healthier too.

By the way, the texture absolutely nails it out of the park: thick, fluffy, and perfectly soft in the middle.

These pancakes are easy to make and take less than 5 minutes to make. They are naturally gluten free, too.

No eggs and no dairy are needed, they also have just 6 ingredients.

Ingredients needed

This is a very simple ingredient list for making these pancakes and you probably have everything on hand from the get go. If not, you’ll find them at any basic grocery store. Here is what you’ll need: 

  • Almond flour. Blanched or superfine almond flour is preferred, not almond meal. The latter will yield a more dense pancake. 
  • Oat flour. Skip the expensive pre-made flour and make your own
  • Baking powder and baking soda. Both leavening agents are used to give the pancakes some rise, fluffiness, and stability. 
  • Banana. Overripe banana to add moisture and sweetness. 
  • Chia egg. A fantastic egg substitute, you’ll combine one tablespoon of it with around 3 tablespoons of water to form a gel. 
  • Almond milk. Or any plant-based milk of choice (soy, coconut milk, oat milk, etc). 

How to make vegan almond flour pancakes

This pancake recipe is simple to make follows a simple 2-step process. Seriously, they take less than 5 minutes to cook and could not be any easier. 

Step 1- Make the batter

Start by combining your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then, add your banana, prepared chia egg, and then the almond milk. Mix everything together until a thick batter remains. 

Step 2- Cook the pancakes

Now, lightly grease a non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Once hot, scoop 1/4 cup portions of the pancake batter onto it and cover the pan immediately. Let the pancakes cook for 2-3 minutes before carefully flipping them using a rubber spatula. Cook the pancakes for a further two minutes before carefully removing them from the pan. 

Step 3- Stack and serve

Stack your pancakes and serve them with some maple syrup, fresh berries, or whatever your favorite pancake toppings are.

Tips to make the best recipe

  • Cover the pan when cooking the pancakes. This traps the heat in a condensed space, which then helps the pancakes cook evenly and rise quickly, making them super fluffy! 
  • Let the batter sit for 5 minutes. We want the batter to be thick, so allow time for the ingredients to meld together. 
  • Add more milk if needed. Similar to the last post, if the batter is a little too thick (this can happen with some brands of oat flour) and a few more tablespoons of milk. 
  • Make them sweeter. These pancakes are relying on the banana to provide the sweetness and whatever toppings you add once they are cooked. If you prefer sweeter pancakes, add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite sugar to the batter. 

Storage info

Wondering what is the best way to store leftovers? Here are best practices for vegan pancake storage:

  • To store: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 5 days. 
  • To freeze: Place the cooked and cooled pancakes in ziplock bags and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months. 
  • Reheating: Zap the pancakes in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.

    Delicious vegan almond pancakes! I followed exactly the recipe, only sprinkled in the mix some chopped raw cashews. My only topping was a little bit of maple syrup, and voila!!! This is a keeper! Thanks Arman! 💞

  2. 5 stars
    I did not have coconut flour so I used 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 2 T. whole wheat flour which worked fine. Very nice recipe!! Should the milk substitute be at room temperature?

  3. Made them this am. Very fluffy and filling!!! Thanks for a sharing a great recipe. I think I need to lower the heat a bit some got a little burt on the first side. But yummy none the less.

  4. These were awesome, however, we are new to this Keto stuff, and we’re confused on serving size. How many pancakes should the recipe make?

  5. 5 stars
    These were absolutely amazing- It was a little time consuming but the pancakes came out perfectly!

  6. 5 stars
    How much is considered 1 serving for the pancakes?! These turned out great, super fluffy just don’t know how much to eat!

  7. 5 stars
    No way, VEGAN KETO PANCAKES?! I have to try recreating this recipe–I’d eat the whole batch and I’d have no shame in that 😉

  8. 5 stars
    These look so great but don’t have any ground flaxseed and seriously can’t wait until it arrives, so would the recipe work as well with real eggs if vegan isn’t essential, just low carb ?

    1. Hi Alison! I haven’t tried that but I don’t see why not- I have a chocolate chip pancake recipe to share this week which is egg-based!

  9. The taste was yummy..but I just couldnt get them to come out right. To cook fully in the middle I had to practically burn them. They still fell apart. The only thing I did different was only waited about 10 minutes for the flax egg. I will try again with a full 15 minute wait time. Any other ideas?

    1. Hi Lisa! Hmm was the flax egg gel-like? The timing shouldn’t be an issue! Did you cook on medium heat and cover them? The batter should be super thick, I’ll make a video of it 🙂
