Are coconut flour pancakes better than almond flour pancakes?

I have a coconut flour pancake recipe that I like. However, hands down, I enjoy almond flour pancakes a lot better. They’re naturally fluffier and feel and taste more like ‘real’ pancakes than most coconut flour pancakes.

Can you use almond meal instead of almond flour?

You can use almond meal to make keto pancakes. However, because almond meal is made from ground almond which typically still contains the skins and has a more coarse grind, your pancakes may look different in color and feel more ‘heavy’ than pancakes made with blanched almond flour. 

On the other hand, almond flour, especially blanched almond flour has a much finer texture and this will help your pancakes turn out lighter and fluffier if you follow this exact recipe.

Can almond flour substitute for all-purpose flour?

In order to make keto friendly pancakes you must use a gluten free flour like almond flour so that your net carbs are low. However, if you’re attempting to make these pancakes but you’re not following the keto eating plan, then it is possible to swap all-purpose flour for almond flour using a 1:1 ratio. Only make this substitute if you’re not following the keto lifestyle.
