Everyone likes pancakes. So I was quite happy when the Almond Board asked me to create a pancake recipe for them. I do have a couple of other gluten-free pancake recipes, though I think this pancake recipe is the best of the bunch!
Hope you enjoy these high protein, gluten-free and paleo Silver Dollar Pancakes made with almond flour as much as we have.
Silver Dollar Pancakes
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
- 1½ cups blanched almond flour (not almond meal)
- ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- grapeseed oil or coconut oil for cooking
- In a large bowl Whisk together eggs, water, vanilla and agave
- Add almond flour, salt and baking soda and mix until thoroughly combined
- Heat grapeseed oil on a skillet over medium low to medium heat
- Scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of batter at a time onto the skillet
- Pancakes will form little bubbles, when bubbles open, flip pancakes over and cook other side
- Remove from heat to a plate
- Repeat process with remaining batter, add more oil to skillet as needed
I’m getting ready to head out to Los Angeles for a book signing on Saturday, June 12th at Erewhon and some other fun little events that I’m doing for the Almond Board. Stay tuned for more information this coming Wednesday.
Nice texture and appearance however my little pancakes came out very dry despite cooking on medium low. I’ll try it again and add more water.
Thanks Holly, make sure you are using one of the recommended brands of almond flour here:

We love this recipe with a blueberry sauce. How can I adjust it for waffles? We have really enjoyed the recipes that you create and applaud you for taking control of your health. Thank you for what you do.
Nona, I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)

Can I refrigerate batter overnight? If wanting to prep in advance?
Al, I haven’t tried that :-)

Hi Elana! Oh my family is beyond thankful for you pioneering the way in healthy eating! We are new to this journey and your books and website have been a life-saver.
Is there tweaks you can include to make any almond flour work? We are also extremely tight with our budget, and the recommended flours are pretty costly!
Mrs. R., thanks for your comment. Yes, almond flour is so costly. What about checking out some of my nut-free recipes:
