For all of you pancake lovers, I have a list of Paleo pancakes for breakfast for you to look through.
I love how easy it is to make pancakes and my children love my pancakes and enjoy trying different types of pancakes. All of the pancakes on this page are Paleo, which means they are all grain-free and dairy free; plus I tried to find ones that are easy to make.
I hope that we provided some recipes that might interest you. I put a variety of different basic recipes and many different flavor ideas that will take a plain pancake to the next level.
You have got to check out these pancake recipes. I bet you’ll be surprised to find all of the different variations of what you thought were boring Paleo pancakes.
Most of these pancake recipes are sweetened with honey or maple syrup and many use coconut oil or ghee and coconut milk. There are some creative recipes here; I think you will really enjoy them and I hope you will try them out.
Don’t let Paleo pancakes be boring or bland ever again! So here you go – Paleo pancakes!
Here are some answers to some common questions about Paleo pancakes:
Is almond flour Paleo friendly?
How many carbs are in 1/4 cup of coconut flour?
1/4 cups of coconut flour have approximately 120 calories, 4 grams of protein, 4 grams of fat, 10 grams fiber and 16 grams carbs.
Can I use coconut flour instead of all purpose flour?
Not straight across and it takes a lot of experimenting to get it right. I suggest you just find a recipe that someone else has been the guinea pig for lots of times and use that recipe. Coconut flour is extremely absorbent so compared to any others flours you use very little.
Is coconut flour better for you than white flour?
Coconut flour contains fewer carbs than other nut flours. It has more calorie-free fiber than wheat flour and is a good source of protein.
Can I use almond flour instead of all purpose flour?
No,, it can’t be substituted straight across. Most gluten-free flour requires more moisture and sometimes thickeners. They are usually denser. So you really need a tried and true recipe that’s been proven to be good.

Paleo Breakfast Pancakes
1. Fluffy Paleo Pancakes – My Natural Family
The small amount of banana in these helps make them fluffy and light. If you didn’t know, you wouldn’t be able to tell that these are super healthy compared to “regular” pancakes. Measuring the three kinds of flours is a little more work but it is worth it. You really get the best of all of the different kinds. It makes it so the negative aspects of each flour are minimized and the positive aspects are maximized. You really don’t taste any one kind of flour. Which is a good thing in my opinion.
2. Almond Flour Pancakes – The Roasted Root
This is a basic pancake recipe made with almond flour. They have a little bit of a nutty flavor. Of course, they aren’t as soft as the pancakes you’re used to. As long as you realize that, we’re good. Tapioca flour is added to help bind the ingredients together and helps make them fluffier and lighter. It also helps make them easier to flip without falling apart. They will taste fine without it, but I recommend it. I love the flavor of tapioca flour.
3. Pancakes (Without Bananas) – I’m Gluten Free
There are a lot of Paleo pancake recipes out there that are made with bananas as the main ingredient. To that, I say. No Thank You. I like these because they don’t taste like scrambled eggs or bananas. I want my bananas to taste like bananas and my pancakes to taste like pancakes.
4. Banana Pancakes – Real Simple Good
Eggs – Bananas – Almond Butter
Anytime a recipe is made with only three ingredients you know it has to be pretty simple to make. Think about it, there are only three things to measure. These main ingredient in these are bananas. I know that some of you like that. Remember those peanut butter banana sandwiches you had as a kid? Well, these taste a lot like those. Those were the good old days.
5. Choco Nutty Tiger Pancakes – Beauty and the Foodie
These “buttermilk” pancakes are grain free with nut butter and chocolate sauces. They are called buttermilk because if you didn’t know, you can make buttermilk out of regular milk by adding vinegar to it, which in turn makes it sour. Then you have “homemade” buttermilk. You can do the same thing with almond milk. You should give it a try. It’s really easy.
6. Blueberry Pancakes with Maple Blueberry Compote – Paleo Running Mama
These are light and fluffy and bursting with blueberry flavor. As a precautionary word, don’t be tempted to mix them too long. If you do, you’ll lose the amazing fluff factor. The blueberry compote is simple and made with maple syrup. I think you’ll really like them.
7. Cassava Flour Chocolate Chip Pancakes – Easy GF Recipes
Cassava flour is a new favorite flour among the Paleo community I guess you could say. It has many wonderful qualities and is really a flour you should look into if you haven’t already. If you’d like to learn more about it and find other recipes made with cassava flour you can go to my Paleo Cassava Flour Recipes Index, Pros, Cons and Best Prices post. My mouth is watering just thinking about eating raspberries and chocolate chips together for the recipe.
8. Maple Butternut Squash Pancakes – Fit Happy Free
I love butternut squash and I definitely love it in recipes like these pancakes. It not only adds so much flavor but it makes them so moist and then it makes them really healthy. To me, that’s a win win win situation. This would be a perfect way to use up leftover butternut squash from dinner the night before. Then they’d be much faster and easier to make.
9. Sausage Pancake Muffins – Jay’s Baking Me Crazy
These muffins are just like sausage and pancakes, that is except for the shape and the way you cook them. Well, they are actually muffins but they taste like pancakes. I love the flavor of sausage with pure maple syrup. They simple to make. You just bake them in the oven instead of standing over a frying pan and flipping. While they are baking you can do something else, like take a shower. That’s why I think they are actually easier and don’t really take much if any longer. Your time is just spent doing something besides slaving over a hot grill.
