  • 4 1/2 tablespoons ghee, avocado oil, or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons packed blonde coconut sugar or maple sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla or plain almond milk
  • 3 large organic free-range eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups organic blanched fine-ground almond flour (about 6 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of ghee (or oil of choice), coconut or maple sugar, and almond milk. Whisk until well combined.
  2. Add the eggs to the mixture and whisk until smooth.
  3. Gradually add the almond flour, baking powder, and salt to the wet ingredients, whisking until a thick batter forms. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld and the batter to thicken slightly.
  4. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the remaining ghee to the pan and swirl to coat.
  5. Using a measuring cup or ladle, scoop a heaping 1/4 cup of batter into the pan, spreading it out to form a pancake about 4 inches in diameter. Repeat to add one more pancake to the pan, leaving space between each pancake.
  6. Cook the pancakes until the surface is smooth with several tiny bubbles starting to pop up and the underside is golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Carefully flip the pancakes using a thin, wide spatula and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until the second side is golden brown.
  8. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining oil and batter to make 4 more pancakes in 2 batches.

Stack the warm pancakes on a plate and drizzle with maple syrup for a sweet finishing touch. Enjoy these fluffy and delicious Paleo Almond Flour Pancakes with your favorite toppings or enjoy them as they are for a wholesome breakfast treat!
