Tips and Tricks

  • Grease the skillet with a thin layer of coconut oil in-between each pancake.
  • The pancakes should be no more than 4 inches in diameter for easy handling. Large pancakes tend to break when flipped.
  • Another thing to keep in mind is to use finely ground almond flour for fluffy and soft pancakes; however, plain almond flour will also do.
  • When are the pancakes ready to flip? Look for bubbles forming on top and flip when the edges start to cook a bit.
