Author: Julia
  • 1 cup super fine almond flour or hazelnut flour
  • 2 Tbsp tapioca flour
  • 3 scoops hemp protein powder or 3 Tbsp protein powder of choice
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsweetened unsalted creamy almond butter room temperature
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 large eggs
Optional Add-In:
For Serving:
  1. Add all of the ingredients for the pancakes to a blender and blend until smooth. (Note: The batter can turn out thick if your almond butter is very thick. Add more almond milk to the batter as needed).
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium-low and add enough coconut oil (or olive oil) to generously coat the surface. Once skillet is completely hot, measure out 1/4 cup of batter and pour onto the hot surface. Cook until the edges of the pancake appear as though they are firming up (bubbles likely won't rise to the top), then flip and continue cooking until the pancakes are cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes per side (these pancakes take longer to cook than regular pancakes!!) Repeat for remaining batter (you can cook 3 to 4 pancakes at a time).

  3. Serve with almond butter, fig preserves, chopped roasted almonds, and/or pure maple syrup. If you follow a low-carb, ketogenic diet, drizzle some sugar-free maple syrup on top!
