You know when you make pancakes you always have that first sacrificial pancake? The one that either gets burned to a crisp or is white and raw in the middle? This recipe makes perfect fluffy grain-free pancakes every single time. 

There are a few tricks that can help: if you’re using a skillet, make sure you have even heat. Let your pan heat up while you make the batter; an easy way to test if your pan is ready is by flicking a tiny bit of water onto the pan. If it’s hot and ready to go, the water will sizzle immediately.

Don’t over mix your batter! Stir your batter until the dry and wet ingredients are just incorporated. That means mixing until the flour streaks have disappeared but leaving the pesky lumps. If you over mix, you will end up with chewy pancakes instead of fluffy ones!

Another tip for perfect pancakes is to use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour your batter. This way you get happy, uniform, fluffy pancakes.  When I add the batter to the griddle, I start from the center and gently pour in a circular motion to help the batter spread into a nice round circle.

Last but not least, don’t forget (I remind you in the notes) to add Mr. RNL’s fluffy pancake ingredient. When Blake and I got married, he taught me two things when making pancakes. Never, and I mean NEVER, smash your pancakes down with the spatula. Have you seen this? Bad. You’ll get flat, chewy pancakes every time.

The next thing he taught me was his secret ingredient, which he even adds to box mixes and it works! Simply add a few tablespoons of yogurt, coconut cream, or thick coconut milk to the batter. I say always add some vanilla! You’ll have fluffy, tasty pancakes every. single. time.

Ok now for your recipe….

Fluffy Grain-Free Pancakes



  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs.
  2. Add liquid ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add cassava flour, almond flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Cook in butter or coconut oil in griddle or pan over medium heat.
  5. Top with butter, berries and/or syrup and enjoy!


1. If using canned coconut milk, it’s best if the can has been in the fridge overnight (like this easy whipped cream recipe from awhile back). Don’t skip this step. It’s my husbands secret trick to fluffy pancakes!

2. These cook way faster than most pancakes. If you’re used to waiting several minutes for bubbles in your batter and then flipping, think about half the ‘normal’ time before you flip and bubbles will not be present.

3. These make great small pancakes if you use batter about 1/4 cup at a time. My husband likes big pancakes and fills up the pan. One of my favorite things about this recipe is either way works and is delicious.
