    This daylight savings thing is for the birds. I remember when it was actually awesome to have an extra hour of sleep and stay out the night before later than normal because you knew you’d gain that hour back. Oh how times have changed. Since we have a puppy now, we usually wake up at 6 on the weekends but because of the time change this morning and how he doesn’t really “get” the time change, we were basically up at 5 in the morning. Gah, it’s miserable! Not to mention how DARK it gets now. I was out driving yesterday around 630 and I thought it was at least 9pm.

    Oh! How could I forget about Halloween this past weekend?? Our neighborhood kind of sucks when it comes to Halloween – there aren’t many kids that go through it so we didn’t really see any costumes. I did see a bunch on my Facebook feed though so that was fun. There were some really creative ones this year! How was your Halloween? Candy hangover? :)

    I discovered cashew butter while I was on my paleo challenge and became obsessed. It’s basically my favorite nut butter of all time now. I thought I loved almond butter but when I tried cashew butter it completely blew almond butter out of the water. I put cashew butter in so many things now, including smoothies and these paleo cashew pancakes for two! You would think they’re dry as a brick but they’re actually very light and fluffy and the edges are perfectly crunchy!

    They’re really filling too so it’s the perfect portion for two :)

    • 1 cup almond meal, also known as almond flour
    • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour, also known as tapioca starch
    • 2 teaspoons coconut flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup cashew milk
    • 2 tablespoons cashew butter
    • Splash of vanilla extract
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients then make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
    • Add all the liquids into the center then gently start whisking everything together until the batter forms. The batter will be on the thicker side. If you like a thinner consistency, you can add more liquid but be warned that this will yield more pancakes.
    • Heat up a skillet over medium-high heat and add a little bit of coconut oil or any kind of cooking fat to the skillet.
    • Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop out the batter and place it into the center of the skillet. Cook until bubbles start forming on the top of the pancake then flip and cook the other side until browned and pancake is fully cooked through. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
    • Top with whatever you want, serve and enjoy!

    Major candy hangover here. Candy is so addictive, Tried hard not to raid the girls bags, feel so guilty, but you know how it is! These pancakes look fantastic. Need gluten free recipes for when we get together as a big family and all make breakfast together. It’s nice not to have to make separate batches of everything and just make everything gluten free so no one gets sick. Thanks!

  • Tori says:

    Cashew butter is the best and I’ll bet in these pancakes it’s to-die-for! I’m wishing I could jumo into the pictue and devour those beautiful pancakes!

  • Heather Christo says:

    the dang dogs Julie! these look amazing!

  • Sarah | Broma Bakery says:

    The whole dark at 5pm thing is not my cup of tea. At least there are pancakes to keep me happy!

  • Maria says:

    Looks like a winner!!

  • Gaby Dalkin says:

    After the one night with an extra hour of sleep, the getting dark so early thing stinks!! I totally feel you on that one but will spend my time thinking abut how I need to make these ASAP!

  • Stephanie @ Girl Versus Dough says:

    Not a fan of this whole “dark before dinner” thing! At least I can have a big batch of these tasty pancakes to console me. ;)

  • Gavin says:

    These look amazing, I hadn’t seen pancakes with nut butter in before :)

    Also, I sympathise with the puppy-time-lag, the clocks changed here in the UK a couple of weeks ago and our pup wanted his AM walk super early then passed out straight after dinner that night!

  • Lauren Gaskill | Making Life Sweet says:

    These pancakes are gorgeous! I want to go swimming in that cashew butter. :)

  • Marla Meridith says:

    PALEO pancakes??? So on my hot list right now!!

  • Megan {Country Cleaver} says:

    Healthy and beautiful? Yup, sign me up! Also, I’m hating this daylight savings thing – I’m still waking up early, there is no sleeping in, especially not with a puppy!! I hope Winston gets better at sleeping in soon.

  • Lee says:

    These look INSANE. Cashew butter is my JAMMMMM.

  • Laura says:

    These look great! Do you think you could get away with not using the tapioca flour? What purpose does it serve?

    • Julie says:

      You could but you would likely have to add more flour to the mix otherwise the batter may be on the runnier side. The tapioca flour gives it a nice airy crisp on the edges.

  • Lisa says:

    These pancakes are the bomb! Texture is perfect, light & fluffy, and they’re delicious. Hands down the best paleo pancake recipe I’ve tried. Thank you Julie.

    • Julie says:

      That makes me so happy to hear!!
