Almond Butter Pancakes

Almond Butter Pancakes-these healthy, whole wheat almond butter pancakes are the perfect way to start the day!

Almond Butter Pancakes Recipe

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.

    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!

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

  30. 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?
