GAPS Blender Pancakes

Disclaimer; I make these in my vitamix and do not own a regular blender to try them in, I am not sure how they would turn out.  If you try it, let me know in the comment section how it goes and I will update this post with your information.

I bought some really good quality almonds in bulk last year.  I use them where ever possible as an alternative to almond flour, which is three times more expensive and three times less nutritious.  I usually grind them in my vitamix to get them as fine as possible.  After doing this for months, I thought what if I could just blend the whole recipe and save the grinding flour step?  If you can do it with a whole grain berry, why not a nut? So here is my favorite pancake recipe from Elana’s Pantry, made over to a GAPS friendly blender pancake.

2 cups almonds
½ cup whole milk yogurt
6 eggs
½ cup melted butter or coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt
butter for frying

In Vitamix, combine almonds, yogurt, eggs, butter, honey, vanilla, baking soda and salt and blend on high until smooth, takes a couple minutes.  Melt 1 tablespoon butter on skillet over medium heat, ladle pancake batter onto skillet.  Cook for 1 minute on each side. Add more butter for each batch as needed. Makes 24 medium pancakes.  Serve with yogurt and berries.


  1. We just had these and really enjoyed them. They are as close to 'regular' pancakes as we've had so far gaps. Yeah! And it's so much easier using the vitamix with liquid, rather then trying to grind the almonds into flour, and then add other things later. It's a perfect recipe for us gapster vita-mix owners. Thanks!

    I wonder if I could just use my leftover egg whites, although that would make less fat and minerals I realize. I just hate throwing so many away every day.

    I am going to try making savory ones next time and seeing about making them into mini pizzas and maybe even trying them as 'sandwich' bread. If I am successful, I'll let you know. :)

    Thanks again!

  2. I would think the eggs whites would be fine. I use my extra egg whites for these tortillas; or coconut macaroons; Also,egg whites are great for dredging meats, fish and vegetables in nuts or coconut flour and frying in coconut oil.

    I have used these for mini pizzas. I left out the vanilla and honey and added some oregano. They are great!


It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
