  1. In a measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the almond milk with the lemon juice and allow to sit for 5 minutes. This is your dairy-free “buttermilk.”
  2. While the “buttermilk” is sitting, in a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: the tigernut flour, tapioca flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Once the “buttermilk” is ready, in another large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: the “buttermilk,” two large eggs, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk the mixture well until lots of bubbles have formed.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk to combine until no lumps remain. The batter will be somewhat thin.
  5. Heat a cast iron griddle on medium-low heat and spray lightly with cooking spray. Once your griddle is hot, pour a heaping ⅛ cup of the batter to make pancakes approx. 4″ in diameter. Cook on medium-low heat until the edges start to get crusty, about 1-1½ minutes per side, and then flip.
  6. If you don’t have a huge griddle, you can keep the cooked pancakes warm while cooking the others by placing them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper in a 200° F preheated oven.
  7. Top with ghee, pure maple syrup, and/or fresh or frozen fruit.


*These pancakes are nut-free unless you consider coconut a “nut,” as they contain coconut oil. The FDA classifies coconuts as tree nuts; however, most people allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut, and coconut allergies are rare. If you have a nut allergy, you should ask to your doctor or allergist whether it is safe for you to handle and consume coconut before making and eating this pancake recipe.
