  • Yield: 5 pancakes 1x


Paleo pancakes made with tigernut flour for a simple nut-free and egg-free breakfast.


  • 1 cup tigernut flour (85g) sifted, spooned & leveled
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour (32g)
  • 3 Tbsp ground flax*
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine tigernut flour, tapioca flour, ground flax, baking soda and salt.
  2. Mix in water, maple syrup, avocado oil and vanilla extract.
  3. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
  4. Grease frying pan with a bit of oil (I used coconut oil) and turn heat to medium.
  5. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter onto frying pan, cover with a lid and cook on medium heat until the bottom is golden brown.  Flip and cook until done**
  6. Repeat until no more batter remains.


*I grind whole flax seed using a coffee grinder.

**These pancakes take longer to cook than your average pancake - have patience!
