Almond Butter Pancakes

Leo Harris — Bitter Lemon — 2021

These pancakes are amazing. They’re big, fluffy and packed full of almond butter, everything you need for the perfect weekend brunch. It’s a great recipe to have as they use a handful of cupboard ingredients that are easy to keep in the kitchen. If you don’t have almond butter, you can replace it with any other kind of nut butter.

Makes: 12 small pancakes

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Food styling: Lily Gjertsen
Photography: Leo Harris

Season: Year Round


300g self-raising flour
320ml almond milk (or oat milk)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons of smooth and creamy almond butter

Rapeseed oil (or butter/coconut oil)

To serve
Maple syrup


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, almond milk, maple syrup and almond butter until a smooth batter forms.

  2. Heat some rapeseed oil (or butter/coconut oil) in a pan. Once warm, spoon in a large spoonful of the pancake mixture and spread it out a little with the back of the spoon.

  3. Leave to cook for 3-5 minutes until cooked on the bottom. Once it feels cooked on the bottom, flip the pancake over and cook on the topside for 2-3 minutes until the pancake is cooked through. We usually cook 3 in a pan at a time.

  4. Repeat with the rest of the mixture until you have all of your pancakes.

  5. Serve with a handful of fresh blueberries, if using.
