Who doesn’t love pancakes? Every time the weekend rolls around, my family delights in having something for breakfast that compliments nicely with a generous stream of maple syrup. And I don’t blame them. What can I say, pancakes are a crowd pleaser and I am delighted to add banana pancakes with almond flour to the stack.

As usual, these grain free pancakes have everything you want and nothing you don’t. Instead of traditional flour, almond and tapioca flour are used instead.

Are almond flour banana pancakes gluten free?

Before we dive into this recipe, let me answer this question for you. Since this recipe uses both almond and tapioca flours, it is naturally gluten free. For what it’s worth, you should know that these pancakes are dairy free too.

Almond Banana Pancake Making Tips

To get the best grain free banana pancakes, every step in this recipe is important. So start by using a cast iron, non stick pan or non stick griddle. If you can, use a pre-seasoned cast iron griddle. You can use the smooth side for making pancakes or bacon and the grill side for cooking all your favorite meats and seafood.

I also highly recommend using a ladle or large serving spoon to get the perfect size and shape pancakes each and every time.

How to Store Almond Flour Banana Pancakes

The great thing about making pancakes is that you can always make them ahead and freeze some for later. If you decide to freeze your pancakes place them in a large freezer bags in between flat pieces of wax paper, so that they don’t stick to each other for up to three months of storage in the freezer.

If you just have a few extra pancakes remaining and want to store them short term, try using glass containers and keep them in the fridge for up to three to five days.

A Tip About What Bananas to Use

To get the tastiest banana pancakes, start out with spotty or cheetah bananas. This will ensure that you’re getting the most natural sweetness. I like to store my older bananas in the freezer inside freezer bags. To do this, just peel the banana first before placing in the bags. Make sure that you press all the air out of the bags before closing. I recommend keeping the bananas whole versus slicing them so that you can know exactly how many bananas that you’re grabbing from the freezer. This really eliminates any guess work.

You can also use the frozen bananas for things like banana nice cream, making smoothies and these banana chocolate chip muffins.
