Tips and Tricks
Pour the pancake batter into a hot griddle that has been oiled. Otherwise, you won't get that browned outside on your pancakes and the texture won't be the best.
Grab a pancake flipper - which is basically a really large spatula. These are great for sliding under the pancakes to flip easily. I have found these to be a handy tool when it comes to making pancakes.
If you don't own a pancake griddle, you might really enjoy getting one. You are able to cook a handful of pancakes at once. It helps speed up making breakfast.
Alternately, you can be cooking your vegan sausage or bacon on one side of the griddle while you are cooking your pancakes on the other side.
Add Fresh Fruit or Chocolate Chips
Reach for some vegan chocolate chips or toss some fresh fruit into the pancake batter; either option will give you a more flavorful pancake. Have fun and experiment with your own favorite mix-ins!
Instead of vanilla extract, try a dash of almond extract. It adds a totally different flavor to the pancakes, and it is so tasty. You could even try half-vanilla and half-almond extract in the pancake batter.
Top with Nutella
Vegan nutella that is! Try your hand at making your own homemade vegan nutella, for a really indulgent treat,
Vegan Almond Flour Pancakes FAQs
What does flaxseed do in vegan pancakes?
The ground flaxseed is made into flax eggs. Adding water to the flaxseed creates a egg-like liquid that makes a great egg replacement in a traditional pancake recipe.

How to store leftover pancakes?
If you do not eat all the pancakes, go ahead and refrigerate them. They will last 2–3 days in the fridge.
You can eat these refrigerated pancakes cold or warm them up in the microwave or toaster oven.
Tip: If choose to reheat using the microwave, place a small cup of water in the microwave along with the pancakes. This will keep the pancakes moist!
Can you freeze almond flour pancakes?
Go right ahead and freeze any vegan pancakes you don't want to eat right away. Just lay out the pancakes in a single layer and flash freeze them.
Once the pancakes are frozen, transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag. Then freeze the pancakes for up to 3–4 months.

The flavor was good but mine came out a bit gummy. I am on a grain free diet so I substituted tapioca for gf flour. Any thoughts?
