Nut-Free Paleo Pancakes with Triple Berry Compote


Posted by on November 7, 2014 / 26 Comments

These nut-free paleo pancakes are a spin on my classic paleo pancake recipe. They’re equally delicious and perfect for those with nut sensitivities.

I’m finding more and more people have nut allergies or sensitivities to nuts. Ironically, I never had a problem with nuts (or so I thought), until after I was diagnosed with celiac and went paleo.

One of the first things newbie paleo peeps do is consume an inordinate amount of almond flour. As one of the primary paleo flours, you unwittingly consume far more almonds (via flour) than you ever did previously. This can then trigger a sensitivity to almonds that you never had before. That’s what happened with me. Accidental almond overdose!

After removing almonds for a good period of time (an almond detox), I’m now able to eat them again in small amounts. Thankfully. But if you still have a sensitivity to almonds or other nut flours, this nut-free paleo pancake recipe is for you.

Now, given that the predominant flour used in this recipe is coconut flour, it does have more of a coconut flavor versus the Classic Paleo Pancake recipe, but it’s not overpowering. And trust me, I’d be the first to admit it if it was. In fact, I think it strikes a perfect balance with the tapioca flour. But just like my classic paleo pancakes, these nut-free paleo pancakes are light, fluffy and delicious. Which, is unlike many coconut pancake recipes that resemble dense hockey pucks. You know what I’m talking about, right?

Anyway, if you’re looking for a nut-free paleo pancake option, you should definitely give these a try. They’re a reader favorite! You could also use this recipe as the base for my Paleo Chocolate Waffles.

Enjoy!

PS – if you see specs in the nut-free paleo pancakes below it’s because I used ground vanilla bean as I was out of vanilla extract. Ground vanilla bean is a great little tool in your kitchen pantry arsenal!

Author:
Serves: 7-9
INGREDIENTS
Triple Berry Compote:
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp arrowroot flour
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Mix all the dry pancake ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk in all the liquid ingredients (except the coconut milk). It will be clumpy.
  2. Slowly add the coconut milk. You may need more or less depending on your coconut milk (*full-fat, canned coconut milk tends to be thicker than homemade or store-bough). Continue adding the coconut milk until your batter has reached the desired consistency.
  3. Heat a skillet or griddle on medium-high heat and coat with ghee or coconut oil.
  4. Spoon the pancake batter onto the skillet. Use the back of a spoon to smooth each pancake into a round shape. Keep pancakes to approximately 3-4 inches in diameter as they'll be easier to flip. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, then flip for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan and serve immediately with triple berry compote or your favorite syrup.
  6. To make the triple berry compote, mix the berries and honey together in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, while stirring 2-3 minutes. The heat will start to soften the berries into a liquid. Add the arrowroot flour and stir for another minute. Serve on top of the pancakes.

    Would tapioca flour work instead of the arrowroot flour? And do you know if this berry compote will keep in the fridge? Thanks

    • Given that it’s such a small amount, it’s probably fine. Or you could leave it off all together, as it’s only used to help thicken a bit. The compote will also keep in the fridge for a couple of days. Hope you enjoy!

  • Alicia S.

    This is by far the best paleo pancake recipe I’ve ever tried! Thank you!

    • My pleasure! So glad you like them Alicia! :)

  • Ha – I’m thrilled you’re overreacting Hannah! I feel the same, but I’d much prefer to hear it from you!! ;) x

  • Christine

    Is there a substitute that I could use for the white wine vinegar? Like apple cider vinegar?

  • Marisa

    Would coconut flour work as a substitute for arrowroot flour?

    • No, it would probably change the texture. As it’s only used to slightly thicken the sauce, I would just leave leave it off. It’ll be fine without it. :)

  • Cathy Kohl

    These are delicious!! We just made a trial batch to decide if we could make these for friends. They turned out great – fluffy like a pancake too.

    • What good are pancakes if they’re not fluffy, right? ;) So happy you like them Cathy. Hope your friends like them as well!

  • Radhika

    Can you make the batter ahead of time?

  • SG

    Oh my goodness these are amazing!!! I made them three weeks ago, LOVED them, and then of course, misplaced the link (ugh!!) so I tried different recipes and none compare to these. This morning I found the site again and I made sure it is now bookmarked!-can’t wait to try other recipes as well.

    • Yay – I’m so happy you loved the recipe (and found me again!). Bookmark, pin and subscribe….then you’ll be covered. ;) x

  • Chrystal

    I made these a couple months ago and they are our new favourite. I made them for myself and my kids devoured them…. I now have to double batch the recipe to ensure I have lots to keep in the freezer for make ahead breakfasts.
    Love the recipe. Thanks for sharing :)

    • Awesome. Love to hear that Chrystal! And double batching is definitely a smart idea for easy, heat-up and go breakfasts! :) x

  • GMS

    Is there a flour I could use instead of the tapioca flour? I’ve read that a lot of people don’t consider that Paleo since it needs to be extensively processed in order to be made edible/usable. Do you have any recommendations?

    • Unfortunately no, as that’s what makes these pancakes so fluffy. And most in the paleo community do consider tapioca flour a safe starch. :)

      • GMS

        Thanks for the information. I’m new to this and just learning, so I’ve been reading a lot and I’m trying to determine what I should and shouldn’t use. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply!

        • No problem! My biggest word of advice is to use it as a framework, but listen to your body. Everyone is unique. And for me personally, once I healed my gut I was able to reintroduce many foods that may not be classified as paleo, but are still healthy, whole foods. :) x

  • Dan Hansen

    Wow, these were incredible. Wife and Daughter loved them!!

  • Janine

    My mouth is watering thinking about making these – do you have a suggestion for a brand of full fat coconut milk?
