For Serving:
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend just until smooth (note: you can prepare these pancakes in a mixing bowl using a whisk or hand mixer if you don't own a blender).

  2. Heat a large skillet just above medium heat and add just enough oil to lightly coat the pan.
  3. Measure out ¼ cup of batter and pour into the skillet.

  4. Cook until the sides of the pancakes firm up and a bubble or two escapes from the top, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Carefully flip the pancakes (these are a little more fragile than wheat flour pancakes), cook an additional 45 seconds to 1 minute then repeat with remaining batter.
Recipe Notes

*While you don't have to use tapioca flour to make this recipe work, it does help bind the pancakes and also makes them a bit lighter and fluffier. It isn't a necessary ingredient but does step up the pancake game just a bit :)

If your batter is very watery, add more almond flour until it thickens. You can also use a small about (1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon) of coconut flour to help thicken the batter as well.
