high protein whole wheat almond pancakes

Whole Wheat Almond Pancakes


My boys love pancakes. If given the option, they would eat them every morning for breakfast. So I wanted a simple recipe I could feel good about feeding my family. The pancakes had to be made with whole wheat flour and also contain some protein.  After many iterations, this is our go-to pancake recipe.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Recipe makes 8 5-inch pancakes, about 4 servings and is easily doubled.

Whole Wheat Almond Pancakes

Whole Wheat Almond Pancakes


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (see options here)
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon oil (butter, coconut oil, avocado oil... ) plus more for cooking


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl or large pourable glass measuring cup
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan on medium heat
  3. Pour batter onto hot griddle
  4. Flip pancakes once bubbles appear
  5. Cook pancakes until lightly browned on both sides

Note: I find that using a high smoke point oil like coconut oil reduces the amount of smoke produced while cooking the pancakes.  It also imparts a nice nutty flavor.
