Are you looking for a simple yet delicious almond milk pancakes recipe that your whole family will enjoy? While some of my kids are lactose-intolerant, not all of them are. Yet everyone just loves this fast recipe for making pancakes with almond milk.
While I don't make a homecooked big breakfast every day, I try to do pancakes every Sunday. Pancakes work well because I can double or triple the batch and freeze them.
This almond milk pancakes recipe is also a great way to use up leftover cranberries, raspberries or blueberries.
Another reason I like this recipe is that it is perfect to make in a cast iron frying pan. Our homestead kitchen has a five-burner propane cooktop. And we also have an extra two-burner propane cooktop on the same counter. (Big family cooking bonus!)
Yet in the winter, I'll sometimes cook these almond milk pancakes on our woodstove.

How to Make Almond Milk Pancakes
Full disclosure here: it's pretty easy to adapt any traditional pancake recipe to one that uses almond milk.
Over the years, I've experimented with using soy milk, oat milk, and almond milk. I find that non-dairy types of milk usually lead to fluffier pancakes. And they also change the flavor of the pancakes.
This recipe is the one that works best for us right now.
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 4 tbsp butter or vegetable oil
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsps granulated sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp bacon grease
- Mix eggs, milk, and butter in a large bowl.
- Add flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
- Use a fork or whisk to combine the dry ingredients before mixing them into the wet ingredients.
- Heat your cast iron griddle until water bounces on it.
- Put 1 tbsp bacon grease in griddle.
- Use a soup ladle to measure batter for pancakes. (My rectangular cast iron griddle can do nine medium-sized pancakes at a time.)
- Cook until the bottom of the pancake is brown and you see bubbles that break on top.
- Flip and cook for one minute more.
- Remove the first batch to a plate.
- Regrease the pan with the remaining bacon grease and cook your second batch.
- Repeat as needed!
