Ingredients and substitutions:
- Almond flour – one of my favourite grain free flours that you could easily swap for cashew flour.
- Tapioca flour – to help give these flours the most light and fluffy texture.
- Coconut flour – this combined with the other flours in this recipe give these pancakes the best texture.
- Baking soda – to help these pancakes rise. I recommend using aluminum free baking soda.
- Sea salt – to enhance the flavours of these pancakes.
- Eggs – to help make these pancakes so light and fluffy.
- Coconut milk – to add some moisture to the pancake batter and some healthy fats. You can swap this for another dairy free milk such as cashew milk or almond milk.
- Honey or maple syrup – either of these two natural sweeteners work to sweeten these pancakes.
- Apple cider vinegar – this is needed to combine with the baking soda to help these pancakes rise. You can swap this for lemon juice instead.
- Vanilla extract – to help enhance the flavours of these delicious pancakes.
- Blueberries – one of my favourite fruits that helps add natural sweetness and flavour to these pancakes.
How to make this recipe:
You will love how easy these pancakes are to make!
First, preheat your electric griddle to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Next, in a bowl combine the dry and wet ingredients (except for the blueberries) and stir until the batter is smooth.
Now gently stir in the blueberries.
Then drop 2-3 tbsp of batter at a time onto the pre-heated skillet and cook each pancake for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown.
Repeat until you use all the batter. Then serve and enjoy!
- Using room temperature eggs will help the pancakes turn out fluffier.
- If you don’t have an electric griddle, use a skillet on low heat on the stove instead. Just add 1-2tbsp of oil (such as coconut oil) to the pan first so the pancakes don’t stick.
- These pancakes freeze really well so feel free to make a double or triple batch and freeze some for later.
- If you don’t have apple cider vinegar substitute with a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice or other vinegar of choice.
- If you don’t have coconut milk substitute with another dairy-free milk such as almond milk or cashew milk.
- If you don’t tolerate almonds I would use cashew flour instead of almond flour.
Topping ideas for these blueberry pancakes:
- Like other pancakes maple syrup or honey are great options.
- If you tolerate dairy, butter is always a great idea (can can also substitute with ghee or coconut oil).
- Nut butter such as almond butter or cashew butter.
- My Berry Sauce would be so good on these pancakes!
- My Blueberry Chia Seed Jam or Plum Chia Seed Jam would both be great options.
How to store:
Store any leftover pancakes in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Frequently asked questions:
Definitely not! These pancakes will not turn out if you try that. Coconut flour requires a lot more moisture than tapioca flour so you would need to increase the amount of eggs and liquid if you tried this.
Nope. Even though both of these grain free flours come from the cassava plant, they are very different. Cassava flour uses the whole plant, while tapioca flour just uses the starchy part so the pancakes would not turn out if you tried to sub these one for one.
I would use cashew flour instead.
Are these keto blueberry pancakes?
Even though these pancakes are made with almond flour, making them higher in protein compared to most pancake recipes, they are now low carb or keto. They are made with blueberries and maple syrup which gives them a higher carb count than would be allowed on a keto diet.
Are these vegan paleo pancakes?
These paleo pancakes are made with eggs so they are not vegan. To turn them into vegan paleo pancakes, swap the eggs for chia eggs or flax seed eggs. Just note that the pancakes won’t be as fluffy if you do this.
