Before the whole30 police comes after me….

Yes, I know that technically you are not supposed to try to make food like pancakes on Whole30.

But you know what I say? LIVE A LITTLE.

Especially when “live a little” means eating tasty like golden brown, pillowy soft pancakes that have almost no ingredients and you can probably make right now.

You. Guys. I can’t even believe how easy these are.

Easier than paleo banana pancakes with coconut flour. And even easier than microwave peanut protein pancakes….and who thought you could get easier than the MICROWAVE.

Whole30 Pancakes Toppings

Everyone knows that a pancake isn’t a pancake without the BEST toppings! For these pancakes, here are a few topping ideas:

  • Healthy Strawberry Chia Jam: spread as much of this berry goodness overtop your stack of pancakes, and maybe a generous drizzle of your favorite nut butter too!
  • Strawberry Cheesecake Filling: I originally used this in a brownie recipe, but this filling would be PERFECTION when slathered on these pancakes.
  • Raspberry Coconut Cream: Snag this from a delicious cake recipe of mine, but instead use it instead of whipped cream on these pancakes! Add some fresh raspberries, too of course. 
  • Your favorite nut butters, whipped cream, and fresh fruit!

Pancakes FAQ

Can I have pancakes on Whole30?

If you want to get technical, you are not allowed to recreate items like pancakes on whole30. However, there are only so many eggs you can eat right? The ingredients in this recipe is totally whole30 compliant!

Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

The short answer to this is NO! Although this recipe does use a little bit of coconut flour, do not try to use coconut flour instead of the almond flour that it calls for. The two flours soak up moisture and cook very differently, so they will not turn out if you use only coconut flour! Check out this Almond Flour Chocolate Cake for more baking ideas with almond flour.

Do I have to add flour?

Although there are some banana pancake recipes that call for ONLY banana, I find that the texture is much better when a bit of flour is used as well! Therefore, I do recommend adding flour! And if you want to maximize your flour try out our Best Waffle Recipe.
