Why we love making pancakes with almond flour…
Fiber. I love that almond flour gives 4 grams of fiber per ½ cup serving! Boost your fiber intake and start using it as a staple in your baking life to make baked goods more nutritious 🙂
Nutty flavor. If you’re a fan of nuts like me, you’ll appreciate the nuttiness of almond flour. By no means is it an overwhelming nutty flavor but it’s just enough to heighten the flavor of whatever you’re baking. PS – almond flour is da bomb as a coating for chicken tenders!
Gluten free. If you didn’t know already, the hubs eats gluten free, thus I do most of the time. I typically buy almond flour in bulk because we go through it like cray cray. I’m always on the hunt for yummy tasting almond flour brands and Costco’s Kirkland and King Arthur are on the top of my list.
Tips for making homemade fluffy pancakes:
- Greek yogurt! My secret to the best fluffy pancake recipe is 100% in the Greek yogurt. The creaminess factor of the yogurt is what fluffs these pancakes up and makes them light as a cloud!
Whisking! Adding air into the batter with a whisk also helps creates the fluff factor and gives you the best fluffy pancake recipe.
Leavening! Don’t skimp on the baking soda and baking powder. These help to lift the pancakes and keep them oh so fluffy.
- Hot griddle or non stick skillet! To get pancakes with lift, you need to start with a hot skillet. If the skillet hasn’t heated the pancakes won’t get that initial lift, and the pancakes will fall flat.
Protein pancakes with Greek yogurt coming in HOT! Literally 🙂
