  • 1.5 cups blanched almond flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • Ghee or coconut oil for cooking

  1. Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl using a hand blender or immersion blender until batter is a pourable consistency.
  2. Make one test pancake to check for desired thickness and texture.
  3. In a pan over medium-low heat (I set mine just below medium), melt some fat. You can cook all pancakes on a griddle as well for approximately 2-3 minutes per side until bubble form and both sides are golden brown.
Note: you could add spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla, blueberries or other flavors.
