    Tapioca flour and ground almonds gives these pancakes a lovely texture and apple sauce combined with a little bit of cinnamon makes them taste even more delicious. Serve with a light drizzle of honey for paleo and gluten-free pancakes.

    Serves: 2 

    • 2 eggs
    • 80ml apple sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 60g ground almonds
    • 45g tapioca flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil, or as needed

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:15min resting  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Whisk eggs lightly in a large bowl. Add apple sauce and vanilla extract; mix to combine.
    2. Combine ground almonds, tapioca flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a separate bowl. Add to egg mixture; mix until just combined. Add water until batter is desired thickness. Set batter aside to rest for 15 minutes.
    3. Melt coconut oil on a non-stick pan or flat griddle over medium-high heat. Drop pancake batter by large spoonfuls onto the pan and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

    This recipe was easy to follow and cooked up similar to wheat flour based pancakes. They are not dense like many other paleo recipes and the texture is pretty close. I used a pureed peach instead of applesauce (because it's what I had on hand) and I did not need to add any extra water. I served this with a peach-blueberry compote and it was delicious.  -  29 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great consistency, very much like regular pancakes. I added our usual chopped walnuts and blueberries to the recipe, and it came out tasting like our wheat based pancakes.  -  14 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made the pancakes exactly as the recipe. It was delicious! The pancakes formed like a wheat pancake and was not too sweet. I added butter as I turned the them and ate without syrup. Thanks for sharing  -  09 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
