Fluffy Blueberry Paleo Pancakes

gluten free pancakes

Gluten free pancakes, normally the name that scares people.  I know I have gone into restaurants and stores to buy gluten free pancakes as well as the mix to make them at home and been severely disappointed. Most of them miss the mark, which is why I set out to nail it and make it easy to have delicious pancakes at home every day you want them. Heck, you can even have them for any meal you want. Breakfast, yep. Lunch, of course. Dinner, why not? Does anyone else love breakfast for dinner as much as I do?

Gluten Free Pancakes

I spent a lot of time talking to people about having healthy relationships with food and making empowering decisions that support their health. I only share because I struggled with bulimia for 12 years and have learned many valuable lessons.

The reason I love these gluten free pancakes is because I am at a point in my life where I no longer need to restrict my food or punish myself for food. I call a lot of meals my forgiveness meals to ensure I am eating them with the right mindset. These pancakes are delicious and can totally be enjoyed within a paleo or gluten free lifestyle.

I spend a lot of time traveling the world and speaking to people about mindset and food. Every time I get on stage, on a podcast or even sometimes in conversations I always share one of my best quotes:

You may be wondering why I am talking about all of this while posting about gluten free pancakes. The answer is simple, we eat three times a day and it is perfect practice to continue to develop a positive mindset around food. My intention is that you make these delicious pancakes, slather them with some butter and maple syrup and smile.

Heck, I would like it even more if you tweeted me while you were eating so I can high five you for making healthy choices.

When you are done with these, I posted a few more of my favorite pancake recipes below so you have plenty of options. This recipe is from my book The Paleo Kitchen (page 95) and is alongside over 100 other recipes. If you have the book, thank you. If you would like it, you can grab your copy here.

Fluffy Blueberry/Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 5 pancakes
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs.
  2. To the eggs add the almond milk, honey, lemon juice, and vanilla and whisk until well blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour and tapioca flour, then add to the wet ingredients ¼ cup (60 grams) at a time, while continuously whisking.
  4. Then mix in the baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Grease a large skillet and place over medium heat.
  6. Once the skillet is hot, use a ladle to pour 3-inch (7.5-cm) pancakes in the skillet.
  7. Once holes begin to appear in the surface of a pancake, drop a small handful of chocolate chips onto it and flip it. The pancake should cook on each side for 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with rest of the batter.
  8. Top with coconut butter and enjoy!
There are some variables that your batter may be too thick, if so just add small amounts of water and mix until pourable. These will cook a little slower than normal pancakes. Be patient!

  1. I followed all instructions and the batter was so thick , it was like biscuit dough so I added water and kept adding water. Finally, I got a batter that was thick, but I could ladle it out on the griddle. Baked them 4 minutes on each side and still gooey and undone in middle. I keep trying new Paleo pancake recipes and haven’t found one yet that gets done in the middle. I must have done something wrong because I read everyone’s posts and they are all very satisfied.

    1. Paleo batter is always thicker looking than regular batter. Even though it looks thick, it’s actually soft and scoopable. If you keep adding water, it throws off the flour to liquid ratio and won’t cook through. Try cooking the recipe as is and see how it cooks for you. I usually do add a little extra milk, 1/4 to 1/2 cup, to make it a little extra fluffy. But try it first and then see how much more liquid you want. Good luck!

  2. Recent newbie to pseudo-paleo (cannot give up dairy) and I was looking forward to pancakes this mother’s day. Made these and they were great, even my picky husband and 4 year old loved them. Hard to tell the difference really (except when cooking, miss the flipping signal of the bubbles).

  3. These are amazing! Followed the recipe to the dot and they turned out really well. Fluffy and delish.
    Thank you so much.

  4. I went into making these with the idea that they may just turn out to be yet another paleo science experiment. However, I come back to your recipes again and again pleasantly delighted. I didn’t water mine down that much, although I used to like thin pancakes when I ate wheat, so they weren’t pourable. I just spread them out by hand a little. These pancakes were thicker looking, but the taste was light and fluffy. Ummy, yummy!! I added a little more vanilla just because, and I froze the extras…we’ll see how that tastes another day, probably tomorrow! Thanks again.

  5. These are the best paleo pancakes ever! Chicken eggs really bother my gut so, I didn’t eat eggs for two yeas. Then I tried duck eggs. I can handle them! And this was the first recipe I made with duck eggs. Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. these are great! think i made them too small–a bit dense for my tastes…next time will make them much bigger and thinner! thanks for the awesome recipe… BLUEBERRY PALEO PANCAKES!! woo hoo!

  6. These are not great, super watery batter and taste eggy because there’s hardly any flour! Very complicated for what they are.

    1. I’m wondering if you missed a step or ingredient? I’ve made paleo pancakes for years and this recipe is by far the best.

  7. These. are. amazing. I have been sad for months about not enjoying my old pancake recipe (which was full of gluten but produced the most fluffy and delicious of pancakes). I truly didn’t think a GF pancake recipe could mimic these, but I found its match! These pancakes are even better. Can’t believe how fluffy and tasty. Plus if you cook them in coconut oil, they get a nice crisp outside. Thanks for the recipe – one of my new go-to’s.

  8. Wow! I’m so pleasantly surprised! For birthdays and special occasions, my son has always wanted pancakes or waffles. He even started making me blueberry or apple pancakes for my birthday and mother’s day, so it’s become a tradition. Needless to say, it’s been hard giving them up completely and I’ve tried several recipes that were flops. I’m so happy to have found this recipe! I had cacao nibs on hand, so I used those, and they were delicious with or without maple syrup. Yay! Like others mentioned, I needed to add water to get it to the right consistency, so don’t panic if they seem to thick. This will be my go to pancake recipe!! Thank you!

      1. Thank you! These are the best paleo pancakes l’ve made so far they didn’t stick to the pan and also scrumptious…yum!
