Ingredients for Almond Butter Pancakes

Almond butter is the star ingredient that gives these pancakes their irresistible flavor and nutrition. For best results, use an all-natural creamy almond butter - brands like Justin's or MaraNatha are great choices. You'll also need:

  • Eggs - they provide structure and a fluffy texture
  • Almond milk - or milk of choice
  • Whole wheat flour - any whole grain flour works well
  • Baking powder - helps pancakes rise
  • Vanilla - for flavor
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pure maple syrup - for serving

Feel free to switch up the flavors with add-ins like cinnamon, chocolate chips, or fresh berries. The possibilities are endless!

Step-by-Step Guide for Almond Butter Pancakes

Step-by-Step Guide for Almond Butter Pancakes

Once you have all the ingredients, whipping up a batch of almond butter pancakes takes just 20 minutes from start to finish. Here's a simple step-by-step guide:

1. Mix the Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

2. Whisk the Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, eggs, almond butter, and vanilla until smooth. The almond butter may be a bit thick at first but keep whisking and it will loosen up.

3. Combine the Wet and Dry

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined - avoid overmixing. The batter should be thick but pourable.

4. Cook the Pancakes

Heat a skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Lightly grease with oil or butter. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes until bubbles form on top. Gently flip and cook another 1-2 minutes until lightly browned on both sides.

5. Serve Immediately

Top the hot pancakes with pure maple syrup, fresh fruit like berries or banana slices, more almond butter, or anything else you love!

Tips for Fluffy Almond Butter Pancakes

Follow these tips for the fluffiest, most delicious almond butter pancakes every time:

  • Use very ripe bananas - they add moisture to tender pancakes.
  • The batter will be thick - this helps create fluffy pancakes.
  • Do not overmix the batter - just until combined.
  • Cook over medium-low heat - prevents burning.
  • Make sure the skillet is fully preheated before adding batter.
  • For evenly cooked pancakes, use a lid while they cook.
  • Lightly grease the skillet between batches to prevent sticking.
  • Cook until you see bubbles on top before flipping.

Can I use almond meal instead of almond butter?

You can, but the texture won't be quite as rich and moist. For best results, use creamy natural almond butter.

What if I don't have almond milk?

No problem! Any milk works well like regular dairy milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.

Can I use whole wheat flour instead of white?

Yes, you can use 100% whole wheat flour but the pancakes may turn out a bit dense. I prefer a mix of white and whole wheat.

What if I don't have baking powder?

You can leave it out, but the pancakes won't rise as much. Alternatively, use 1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.

Can I freeze leftover pancakes?

Absolutely! Let the cooked pancakes cool completely then place in a freezer bag or airtight container. Reheat in the microwave or toaster.

What's the best way to reheat pancakes?

The microwave works well - heat for 30 seconds or until warmed through. You can also toast them or reheat them briefly in a skillet.
