Best Almond Pancakes Recipe
- Mostly healthy
- Mostly good for you ingredients
An amazing tenderness is achieved from 3 techniques :
- My Tried and true method when making pancakes is the pastry method of rubbing butter into the flour instead of the traditional melted butter. You can read more about it in the eggless pancakes recipe.
- A combination of almond flour and all purpose flour is used. All purpose gives stability and structure whereas the almond flour bumps up the nutrition, adds almond flavor and makes it tender due to the absence of gluten.
- Buttermilk makes the most tender and flavorful pancakes.
Almond butter - Go for the creamy kind. And, yes peanut butter may be used instead.
Flours - A combination of almond flour and all purpose flour is used.
Leavening - Baking powder and baking soda
Sweetener - Just a tablespoon of sugar
Butter - Unsalted butter
Buttermilk - Store bought buttermilk, refer notes to make your own
Egg - One egg
Step-1: Whisk both flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add butter and rub with your fingertips until it resembles coarse meal.
Step-2: Whisk egg and almond butter together, until well combined and smooth and then followed by buttermilk.
Step-3: Mix dry into wet and mix until well combined.
Step-4: Make pancakes as usual
Serve hot with maple syrup.
Low heat - These almond butter buttermilk pancakes tend to get darker in color if cooked over medium heat. So, we recommend cooking in low-medium heat.
Do not over mix – The same rule applies as with all pancake batters. It is better to see tiny pockets of dry flour rather than mixing to make it smooth.
Make medium size pancakes - Since these pancakes are very tender, use a ¼ cup measure to make medium size pancakes.
If you are out of buttermilk, then here is a really good method to make your own in a pinch – Mix 1 cup milk and 3 tablespoons of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let it stand for about 10 minutes. Stir before using.
Serve these pancakes with maple syrup, fresh berries and some salted butter.
