We usually make pancakes on the weekends, but I couldn’t wait for the weekend this week. I was craving Almond Butter Pancakes like nobody’s business. Yesterday, I woke up early and whipped up a batch and it was the best decision ever. When you start the day with a stack of pancakes, you know it is going to be a good day, especially when those pancakes are Almond Butter Pancakes. They are hearty, healthy, and will give you the energy you need to conquer the world!

I love these pancakes because they are healthy, easy to make, and our boys love them! I don’t tell our boys that they are healthy pancakes though, that is our little secret:)

The pancakes are made with whole wheat flour, almond butter, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and coconut oil. I love using Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla because it has a sweet vanilla flavor, but there is no added sugar. I also like using the shelf stable almond milk because it is easy to keep in the pantry. I can whip up pancakes whenever I am in the mood, even on a weekday!

I like to top the pancakes with extra almond butter, berries, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. These protein-packed pancakes are light and fluffy and will keep you full until lunch time! And a bonus, they freeze beautifully. So make extra and keep some in the freezer for busy mornings. You can reheat them in the toaster or microwave in a matter of seconds!

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • Almond butter, berries, and maple syrup, for serving


  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg, maple syrup, vanilla and coconut oil. In a small, microwave safe bowl, melt the almond butter in the microwave for 20 seconds. Stir and add to the wet ingredients. Whisk until smooth.
  • Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Do not over mix.
  • Heat a griddle or pan to medium low heat. Coat with cooking spray. Drop about a ¼ cup of batter onto heated skillet. Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Continue making pancakes until the batter is gone. Serve warm with almond butter, berries, and maple syrup, if desired.


These pancakes freeze beautifully! Cool completely and store in a freezer bag for up to 1 month. Reheat in the toaster or microwave.

  1. I have almond butter EVERY day for breakfast.  Cannot wait to try these!!!  Completed the survey.

  2. These pancakes sound amazing! Can’t wait to try it. The survey was really easy too. Thanks for sharing great recipes! 

  3. I completed the survey! 
    These pancakes look sooo yummy. Almond butter is one of my favorite things in the world, as are pancakes, so this is such a wonderful combo of the two 🙂

  4. Filled out the survey and can’t wait to make these pancakes-they look like the perfect post-Saturday workout breakfast!

  5. I took the survey, but the submit button appears to be missing. I love using almond milk not only for the extra protein but I also love the almond flavor it gives my recipes.

  6. I completed the survey. These pancakes look delicious. Anything w/ almond milk & almond butter!

  7. I filled out the survey.  These look delicious and we will definitely be trying them!  Thanks for sharing!

  8. I know this is an older recipe, but I wanted to chime in that using a flax egg works beautifully to make them vegan 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  9. Yum!  I just made my first batch, but used peanut butter instead and did a 50/50 mix of white whole wheat flour and white flour.  So good and a yummy snack for the kids.

    For the past few years I have been making this recipe at least once a month. I double it and it freezes so well. My 3 girls love them and have them for breakfast every few mornings. They don’t even ask for syrup – they call them “pancake like a cookie” and I just love how healthy they are!

  13. Awesome made it with gluten free flour and keto butter and sugar free with Lankanto sugar free sweetener

  14. I found this pancake recipe searching for paleo options but it lists wheat flour as an ingredient. Do you have a version for making these paleo since they’re tagged as paleo? Would using almond flour work or would there need to be additional adjustments like baking powder?
