Fluffy Paleo Pancakes (Nut-Free)

The eternal search for a fool-proof fluffy pancakes recipe is real. I am not going to make claims this is it, but it is pretty darn close. While this are not AIP compliant, as they use 1 whole egg, if you have successfully reintroduced eggs, then these bad boys are for you. These pancakes use my favorite flour ever, Otto's Cassava Flour and a little coconut flour, but no nut flour or milk which is a nice change from many of the other paleo pancakes out there.

Fluffy Paleo Pancakes



  1. In a large bowl whisk cassava flour, coconut flour, and baking soda.
  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together maple syrup, egg, 1/4 cup avocado oil, and coconut milk.
  3. Add wet ingredients to large bowl with dry ingredients. Combine with a spoon until mix is completely wet, but don't over combine. You want it to be lumpy. It will be a pretty thick batter.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil in medium frying pan over medium heat. 
  5. Using a 1/4 measuring cup (fill about half way) to scoop batter into pan and form a pancake. Make sure the mix stays about a 1/4 inch thick, this is how you will get a fluffy pancake. I usually get about 3 in a pan.
  6. Allow it to cook undisturbed for about 3 minutes. Check the bottom to see if it is browned, then flip. Cook for another 3 minutes on the remaining side.
  7. Remove from pan and repeat steps 5 & 6 with the remaining batter.
  8. Serve with your favorite toppings like coconut cream, maple syrup, and/or caramelized apple slices. 
Mix makes about 8 three-inch pancakes.


  1. Looks great! I've been wanting to find a great pancake recipe with cassava flour (my favorite!) and no nut flours. How about a healthier version of an apple compote recipe to top it off?? The apples in your picture look great. I think I'll google for one and have these for dinner!

    1. Thanks!! How did they go? Did you get to make them? I thought of adding the apple compote recipe to the post but then didn't. This is basically what I did to make it: 2 tablespoons of organic palm shortening (or butter depending on your diet), about a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon divided, and one apple cored, peeled and sliced. I heated the shortening and half the cinnamon in a small pan over medium heat. Then added the apple slices. I cooked them for about 7 or so minutes, or until they started to brown, then I added the last bit of cinnamon and cooked the for a few minutes more. Then served them on top of the pancakes. :-)

  2. Really wanting to try this !! :) .. wondering if there is a substitute for egg that I could use. I have an egg allergy :( Thanks in advance!!
