    These were actually quite delicious. I used coconut flour vs. almond flour because that's what I had on hand, and I threw in some mini chocolate chips for good measure. The result, tasty muffinesque pancakes that the kids devoured! Will certainly keep this recipe on hand!  -  21 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My fiancee' and I are working toward a more healthy diet and some paleo-type recipes are included. I couldn't find almond butter, so I had to cheat and use regular, sweet cream, unsalted butter (I know, this is not paleo) but I made everything else exactly as the recipe stated. These had a nice flavor and browned up nicely, too. I didn't think the cooking time was anything out of the ordinary. The texture, of course, isn't the same as "standard" pancakes, but even my fiancee' said they were good and he'd eat them again. (He's VERY particular about food.) I'm going to try tweaking it a little, with more and less almond flour, adding some honey, and maybe trying some different spices, like nutmeg instead of cinnamon. Maybe some almond extract instead of vanilla, too. I'm thinking this recipe is a great one to potentially make in different versions, for a little variety. For the reviewer who asked about paleo syrup: Real, unprocessed maple syrup is considered paleo-friendly. As is raw, unprocessed honey.  -  02 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We are gluten and wheat free in our family now. I tried these except I didn't have any almond flour. Instead I subbed Coconut flour. they turned out tasty. I find cooking with these types of flours makes the end product denser and it needs more cooking time. Something I need to get used to. Not that light fluffy texture one gets with a white wheat flour.  -  10 Oct 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
