Orange Almond Flour Pancakes | Vegan & Gluten-Free

It’s no secret that pancakes are the best! After all, check out the facts: they come in stacks, soak up syrup, handle all kinds of toppings and mix-ins, and make you happy! What other breakfast food can claim all of that? However, if you eat gluten-free, you might worry about being left out. Well – stop worrying! We make these orange pancakes with almond flour – that means the recipe is gluten-free (and it’s vegan, too)!

However, there’s no compromise in flavor. The almond flour provides a nutty flavor and buttery texture. On top of that, oranges pair perfectly with almonds. That citrusy zest also cuts through the richness of the nuts and balances the pancake sweetness perfectly.

Seasonal Pancakes for Chilly Mornings

We especially love these pancakes on a winter morning. Why? Well beyond being the beauty of warm breakfast on a cold day, it’s the perfect time for oranges! That’s right, oranges might seem summery, but many are best at the end of the year and throughout winter.

Why use Almond Flour?

There are plenty of gluten-free flours out there – so why did we chose almond for our pancakes? Well, we really enjoy the way it tastes. It has a rich nuttiness that you can’t get from grain-based flours. Being nut-based, it’s also low in carbs, but high in protein and healthy fats. These features help make the pancakes a little more filling and satisfying than regular wheat flour ones.

How to make Almond Flour Pancakes

Cooking pancakes with almond flour isn’t much different from following a regular recipe. The important steps are:

  1. Pour all the ingredients into a bowl
  2. Mix until combined into a batter
  3. Heat your skillet and grease it with just enough oil to coat the surface
  4. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet
  5. Cook the pancake until it bubbles on top
  6. Flip and cook until the other side is golden brown (this will take a couple of minutes)
  7. Move the finished pancake somewhere to keep warm, then go back to Step 1 and repeat this process until the batter is used up
  8. Stack the pancakes up and serve with orange slices, maple syrup, and maybe a little powdered sugar
