Almond Butter flour less pancakes


 Happy, rainy, fall Sunday everyone:


I actually love these kind of days. It’s such a comfort day to stay in and cook, read a book or watch a movie or sports with a friend. 


 I made a recipe that I have been meaning to make for months. I wanted to try out a flour less pancake recipe that I found and have just never gotten around to it until now. I bought all the ingredients yesterday and I was determined I was making them this morning. They are easy peasy to make so I had no excuse.

 I got up up 8:20 and started making the pancakes. They seriously took about 5 minutes to throw together.


The recipe only calls for

½ cup Almond butter

 2 Eggs

½ tea Baking soda

1 tea Cinnamon

½ tea Vanilla

Walnuts ( optional)

 The beauty about this recipe is that you don’t even have to fry these pancakes; you bake them.


Yup, bake.


What could be easier to combine all the ingredients in one bowl and throw in the oven?


The key I am told is to use parchment paper on a baking sheet to cook them. Something about the parchment paper makes them come out as well as they do. I am told not to skip this step or improvise with something else or they won’t work.


 Take a ¼ cup measuring cup and pour a parchment paper lined baking sheet with the batter. I made about 6 pancakes on one sheet.


Bake for 10 -12 minutes at 350 degrees. Mine were done at about 11 minutes.


I have to say they looked kind of like cookies. I put a Limited Edition Maple Nut Honey Butter  that I got from Amish Country last May that is so delish! They have several different flavors that are so good! Check some out here. Look how many delicious flavors they have! OMG, I could buy them all.


 I highly recommend you try this butter.   I don’t like maple syrup and I found the cakes a little dry, but still really good and a good alternative to pancakes if you have a gluten intolerance. The butter made them delicious but anything would be good with these butters smeared on them! I could eat it right out of the jar.

 I made up a whole batch and I will see how they do reheated in a microwave.


I had found a maple flavored almond butter that I bet would taste great with this recipe too. You can mix and match a whole bunch of add ins to this basic mix.

Other add ins as options:

chocolate chips

butterscotch chips

dried cranberries

pumpkin puree instead of apple sauce – might have to thin out batter

mashed bananas

fruit to the basic mix above



I was pleasantly surprised at how these turned out. I would definitely eat these again but have fun mixing up the recipe.


Question of the day: What fun thing did you make this weekend?
