Ingredients needed

  • Almond Pulp — use leftover pulp from making milk or creamer. You can also use ground almonds (more details in FAQ and recipe card).
  • Oat Flour — you can use homemade oat flour or store-bought. 
  • Ground Flax Seeds — acts as the “egg” in the pancakes. This helps bind the pancakes together!
  • Banana — adds a creamy texture, natural sweetness, and flavor. 
  • Almond milk — the recommended milk for this recipe (it’s an almond pulp recipe after all!)
  • Baking powder, vanilla extract, lemon juice — just baking staples!
  • Yogurt, banana, peaches, and sliced almonds — my favorite toppings for this recipe, but feel free to add any that you like!

How to make almond pulp pancakes

  1. Make the batter in one bowl. Mash the banana and mix with the almond milk, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Then add the rest of the batter ingredients. Mix well to combine.
  2. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes to thicken. The batter should take a second to fall off the spoon! Add more milk if too thick, or more oat flour if too thin. 
  3. Cook pancakes in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup of the batter for each pancake. Flip over when bubbles form on top (about 2 minutes). Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Add toppings over freshly cooked pancakes. Use the recommended toppings or any of your favorites!

Serving suggestions 

These almond pulp pancakes are best served warm and fresh! You can add this delicious combination of toppings: vegan yogurt, banana, peach slices, and sliced almonds. But feel free to add your own favorites!

Best Vegan Toppings

If you need topping ideas, you can try different fresh fruits, whipped cream, chopped nuts, chia jam, or my decadent date caramel sauce.

Enjoy these almond pulp pancakes for breakfast, brunch, or really anytime you want! To make this recipe even more delicious, serve alongside a vanilla almond milk latte or tea. These pancakes will pair well with many breakfast lattes!

Storage & reheating

Although best served fresh, you can save these pancakes for later if you need to! Once cooled, store the pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Keep in mind that the texture will be less fluffy the longer it’s stored. 

Toaster 

The toaster is a surprisingly good way to reheat your pancakes. Every toaster setting is different, so start by toasting each pancake for 90 seconds. Make sure the pancake is plain with no toppings if you use this method!

Microwave

You can also microwave the pancakes for 10-20 seconds (each) on 50% power. Flip and repeat until warm. The resulting texture will be denser than when fresh. 

Oven

You can use the oven if you need to, although this method takes the longest. Heat your oven to 350 ° F (180° C) and line your pancakes on a baking tray. Cover the pancakes with foil so they don’t burn. Cook for about 10 minutes.

FAQs & tips

Can I use almond meal/flour instead of almond pulp?

Yes! Some adjustments will need to be made, though. Since almond pulp is slightly wet, you need to balance the amount of liquid in the batter.

You can use almond flour or almond meal in a 1:1 to the almond pulp. However, you need to add more almond milk to get the right consistency. Start with an extra 3 tbsp of milk, and add more if needed. 

Are these almond pulp pancakes gluten-free?

Yes, since we use oat flour instead of wheat flour! If you’re extremely sensitive to gluten, make sure you use gluten-free certified oats for the flour.

Don’t know what to do with leftover almond pulp? Well, almond pulp pancakes have come to the rescue! This delicious, wholesome treat will save food waste and only take 20 minutes. 
Serves 6 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond pulp 125 g
  • ¼ cup oat flour
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds ground
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup almond milk 120 ml
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Toppings

  • 4-6 tbsp vegan yogurt
  • 1 banana diced
  • 1 peach cut into slices
  • cup sliced almonds 30 g

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mash the banana and mix with the almond milk, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.
  • Add the almond pulp, oat flour, ground flax seeds, and baking powder. Stir well to combine.
  • Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes to get a thick, creamy batter. (It should take a second to fall off a spoon). If it’s too thick, add more almond milk. If it's too watery, add more oat flour.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and spoon the batter into pancakes (about ¼ cup for each pancake). Each pancake should be about palm-sized.
  • Cook over medium heat until bubbles form on the surface, about 2 minutes, then flip over and cook for 2 more minutes. 
  • Transfer onto a plate and continue the same with the rest of the batter.
  • Serve with almond yogurt, diced banana, peach slices, and almonds. Enjoy!

Notes

  • The almond pulp is leftover from making almond milk/creamer. Make sure to squeeze as much liquid out before using it for this recipe. If the almond pulp is more wet, you may need more oat flour. If the almond pulp is really dry, you may need less than what the recipe calls for.
  • You can use almond flour or almond meal in a 1:1 to the almond pulp. However, you need to add more almond milk to get the right consistency. Start with an extra 3 tbsp of milk, and add more if needed.

  1. Thank you for the recipe. I am looking for a pancakes recipe to use my almond pulp. I don’t use oats or flours, can I substitute the oat flour for coconut flour or tapioca ? Thanks!

    • Hi Ana, I haven’t tried this recipe without oat flour and if you don’t want to use regular wheat flour either, I image it’s hard to recreate the texture. I don’t bake with coconut flour so I can’t tell you if that swap would work — please let us know if you end up trying it!
