When I say pancakes, what’s the first word that comes to your mind

How about cupcakes?

Aaaannnnd…what’s the first emotion you feel as you roll the word “cupcakes” around?

Pancakes…cupcakes…just the words (before either of their aromas even assault my nostrils) make me feel all happy, and excited, and relaxed – ALL at the same time!

Just those words make me think of a PARRRTAYYY – in my mouf!

Maybe it’s because they both end in “cakes”… ???

Mixing In Almond Butter And Hemp Hearts Into Pancake Batter

When I was a young ‘un, cupcakes, pancakes, were treats – comfort food – exploding with white flour and refined sugar.

These days, while I am a staunch supporter of “treats”, I usually like to put a healthy spin on them – beets in cupcakesquinoa in pancakes, avocado in muffins – I mean, life is too short not to fill it with delicious AND nutritious right?

Why You Should Make These Gluten-free Hemp Almond Pancakes This Weekend:

• They are a stack of comfort food – for your weekend breakfast – or lunch – or both,

• They are delicious, with almost “cake” like in consistency even though they are gluten free (top them with frosting if you’d like and see what I mean)

• Have NO white flour,

• Have NO Refined Sugar,

• Have NO Butter, and

• AND they can be refrigerated for upto 3 days #mealprepwin

These pancakes are made with energy boosting oats, honey, almond butter, and Hemp Hearts.

After I used Hemp Hearts to make these breakfast cookies, I figured my weekend pancake stack could use these slightly nutty, non-GMO seeds, packing a whopping 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of Omegas per 30 gram serving!

These pancakes are easy to whip up just mix all the ingredient up, wait about 5 minutes for the oats to thicken up the mixture, and then cook up spoonfuls of this batter and voila, you are done!

You can double or triple the quantities to make bigger batches. Any extra pancakes you have can be refrigerated for upto 3 days and reheated and enjoyed as needed.

My daughter and I sandwiched our stack of pancakes with almond butter and topped them with more honey before devouring them on our test round. 😉

I hope these Hemp & Almond Pancakes find their way into your homes and hearts this weekend!

  1. […] pancakes? Then check out these oat hemp pancakes too. But, if starting the day flipping pancakes isn’t for you, then check out this eggless […]

  2. Ginger says:

    Can these be made without the egg? Or do you have a vegan version?

  3. Susan J says:

    I found your recipe for Hemp and Almond pancakes this morning and made them. They were so easy to make and they were delish. This is my new favorite pancake recipe. Yum…..

  4. Jennifer says:

    I made these this morning substituting flax egg replacement for the egg and soy milk for the almond milk. The kids both loved them!

  5. Kathleen says:

    Really good, thank you. I ground the oats and hemp seeds into a fine powder for nice smooth pancakes. Added a lil extra honey and some vanilla extract. Kids gobbled them up with raspberry jam. Love using oats in pancakes to fill them up longer and the hemp gives an added boost

  6. Marsha says:

    Tried these after seeing them on pinterest – they were so good! Thank you.

  7. Nene2Swt says:

  9. Hotly Spiced says:

    These pancakes look so light and fluffy I could swear they must have all those ingredients you listed that we traditionally use to make pancakes that aren’t there. These would be a wonderful start to the day. Lovely to be reconnected with you again xx

  10. Marsha says:

    Tried these after seeing them on pinterest – they were so good! Thank you.

  11. Helen says:

    OMG! Just made these and they are delicious! I LOVE the texture with the hemp hearts!! Sharing recipe on FB!! Thank you!!

    • Shashi says:

      Helen, you are too too kind to stop by and let me know! I am so glad you liked these pancakes – and so honored that you popped on over to let me know. Thanks so much for sharing on FB!

  12. Lynn says:

    I love the idea of these pancakes! They look amazing! I was wondering though, my son has an egg allergy would substituting with Flax Egg work? Or is there something else that may work better??

    • Shashi says:

      Hi Lynn, Thanks so much for the kind words! I haven’t ever tried making these with a flax egg – I need to try for sure – I don’t see why it won’t work – if you truy it I’d love to know how it turns out, please.

  13. mjskit says:

    Hemp heart? I’m not familiar with that, but it looks quite interesting. Need to check it out. It sure makes a great looking pancake!

  14. myfitfocusedlife says:

    These look amazing!!! So fluffy and cakey… excuse me while I wipe the drool off my keyboard….. Okay – Can’t wait to make these!

  15. ashley says:

    I’m already in love with these pancakes and haven’t even tried them yet!

  16. how fluffy these pancakes look! love the fact that they are so healthy, great recipe!

  17. helene dsouza says:

    Yeah I used to make more pancakes in my kitchen but somehow… well looks like I ought to start again soon because this looks absolutly lip smacking good.

  18. Eli Pacheco says:

    There’s a threshold into healthy cooking that includes flaxseed, hempseed, and even whole wheat flour, that I’ve yet to cross. I have to be cautious with recipes, because one of my kids has a peanut allergy. These wouldn’t be a go for us then, but, others like it … might help me past that threshold.

    • Shashi says:

      I think maybe you could substitute Sunbutter – which is peanut free – maybe that would help? Or even yogurt? I hope you get past your threshold – thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

  19. Hiding healthy things in our kids pancakes and cupcakes is brilliant. Deliciously nutty and I am sure a little heavier than a regular pancake might keep my teenagers out of my hair for the whole morning…

  20. I like the look of the texture of these especially on that fork pic. They look really nice and fluffy! 😀

  21. cheri says:

    Hi Shashi, love the way these pancakes look, adding hemp to them is so clever!

  22. You have done the impossible! Made me actually want to eat hemp! Those pancakes are to die for! So fluffy but not too airy.

  23. More hemp ideas. You turned the not very good for you pancakes into something outstanding.

  24. These pancakes look superb!

  25. hotlyspiced says:

    What yummy looking pancakes and I love how they have pumpkin spice. These must be very fragrant. I don’t think we can buy hemp seeds here – I’ll have to check xx

  26. I love your oat pancakes and I know I will love these too, packed with lots of good stuff. YUM!

    • Shashi says:

      Thank you so very much Suzanne – I am so honored by the fact you actually gave my oatmeal pancakes a try and actually posted about them – I hope you know how much that meant

  27. They look delicious! Am unfamiliar with hemp seeds, but will definitely look for them at Whole Foods next time I go! :)-Ashley

  28. spicedblog says:

    All of these awesome hemp recipes…you are quite the master in the kitchen, Shashi! Those pancakes look absolutely amazing, too. I want to reach into my monitor and grab them. In fact, just typing the word ‘pancake’ made me happy. Now I want to throw a pancake party! You’re invited, of course. (I mean, who else would I trust to make my pancakes??)

    • Shashi says:

      I am so down for a pancake party!!! Maybe you could even come up with a grilled pancake?!
      When I was in college we had Ramen noodle parties – they were actually more like a cook-off where the best tasting Ramen dish won and the cook was relieved off kitchen duty for the week!

      • I’m glad you republished this one, Shashi! I mean the thought of a pancake party somehow slipped my brain over the years (2014!?), but now it’s back there front and center. And a grilled pancake? Yes, please! Love the new photos here…must be tough going back and making these delicious flapjacks again! 🙂

  29. I used to make pancakes very often for the breakfast…no idea when and why I stopped…and man..what’s not to love these healthy, nutritious and mouthwatering pancakes!
    Have a wonderful weekend, Shashi!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Angie! I so love pancakes – we have them most weekends – which makes for a great weekend indeed 😉 Hope you have a wonderful week!

  30. The first thing that comes to mind when I think pancakes is “mom” because mine would make the most amazing one sfor breakfast on weekend and special occasions. Aaaand she’s the one who’d have to do the flipping for me whenever I tried to make my own because the process stressed me out too much 😆

    Hope you have a lovely weekend as well, Shashi!

  31. Chris says:

    Never tried anything with hemp before, but wow the texture of those panckaes looks amazing! And I bet the taste is equally complimentary!

  32. I have that exact bag of hemp hearts in my pantry right now! When I think of pancakes/cupcakes, I just start drooling…

  33. Ashley says:

    I love these pancakes! I’ve been using hemp a lot in my smoothies lately but haven’t gotten creative with them. I need to make some pancakes this weekend! Happy Friday friend!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Ashley!
      I do so love hemp in smoothies too – but my daughter doesn’t like the texture – but she doesn’t complain when hemp is in cookie or pancake form 🙂

  34. Kelly says:

    Yup pancakes, cupcakes both I LOVE both of them equally and totally wish I had a big stack of these in front of me now! They look gorgeous!!! Love the hemp and almond butter in here too. Since they’re healthier, that whole stack is mine right?? 😉

  35. Mike says:

    OMG Shashi that tablespoon with almond butter…I think I went to almond butter heaven just looking at it 😉
    BTW I love how fluffy and rich those pancakes look, I might whip up a batch tomorrow.

    Have a great weekend my friend!

  36. You KNOW that I have a thang for pancakes.In fact I was just thinking about my beloved Ihop this morning. BUT THESE! These look so fluffy and HEALTHY. I just got some hemp hearts and didn’t know what to do with ’em. This.
