Gluten Free, Grain Free Cashew Flour Pancakes

I am incredibly happy. I have finally found a grain free pancake recipe that I LOVE!! When I was a little kid my dad would make pancakes from scratch. Amazing fluffy, sweet pancakes. And we didn’t eat them with cheap old table syrup. We’d eat them with butter and lemon juice and a little bit of icing sugar.

These pancakes based on Denise’s Almond Flour Pancakes at My Pure Pantry taste almost exactly like Dad’s. The cashew meal is sweet and the coconut milk and vanilla extract add a delicate flavor. And the best part, you can smell real pancake all through the house. I made the pancakes small so they would be easy to flip and cook all the way through. (They have a tendency to burn if they’re left too long on one side. Grilled cheese sandwiches do too, but that’s another story.) The recipe only makes 8-10 small pancakes but is easily doubled.

To make my own cashew meal I grind fresh cashews in my spice grinder until very fine. Some of the meal can be a bit sticky, but the clumps are easily worked out with a whisk.

    • Cool! Thanks for sharing your pancakes with the world :)
      Let me know if there’s a big difference between the cashews and almonds (I haven’t found unflavored almonds here so it’s all on you.) 😉

  4. Do you have any suggestions on what I could use for this recipe instead of eggs. Looks delicious, but I can’t have eggs. Thank you.

    • Hey Jamie!! I haven’t tried an egg substitute in this one. I think the eggs are holding it all together.
