Healthy Almond and Arrowroot Flour Pancakes

Our family’s favorite pancakes, they are a frequent breakfast choice in our house. And that’s okay with me… since they are so tasty, healthy and super easy to make even on our busy weekday mornings. Approved by kids and even my husband (they taste even better than regular flour pancakes). I like everything about them: the look, the texture, the taste… Naturally sweetened with apple sauce and topped with fresh berries, you don’t need anything else to love these pancakes. Paleo, gluten free, and dairy-free. And now this family favorite pancake recipe can become your family’s favorite too.
Healthy Almond and Arrowroot Flour Pancakes


  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 cup arrowroot starch (aka arrowroot flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil (to grease skillet)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 6 strawberries (large, chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
large pancakes (6" each)
Prep time:
5 minutes
Cook time:
12 minutes
Total time:
17 minutes
Yield: 6 large pancakes (6" each) | Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 12 minutes | Total time: 17 minutes


1. For the topping, stir together chopped strawberries, blueberries and maple syrup.

2. In a large bowl (I prefer one with a pour spout), whisk together the dry ingredients: almond flour, arrowroot flour and baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, apple sauce and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk for a minute, until the texture becomes smooth.

5. Heat avocado oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Pour in or scoop some batter to the middle of your skillet (you can make pancakes as large as you wish, I make mine about 6 inch in diameter). When it's bubbly (after about a minute), loosen pancake with a spatula, flip and cook the other side.

6. Place pancake onto a serving plate. Repeat until you are done with all the batter (I usually use two skillets to speed up the process. Also, I add a few drops of oil to the skillets after every other pancake).
7. Top with fresh berries mixture and enjoy!
