• Eggnog Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

    December 9, 2012

    This morning, I enjoyed eggnog pancakes for breakfast and, oh my goodness, they tasted a-mazing… like Christmas in pancake form. Aren’t the holidays the most wonderful time of year?


    Sunday morning often means that I make pancakes for breakfast and this morning was no different. As I went to grab some of the ingredients to make the batter from the refrigerator, I spotted a carton of eggnog, and I immediately knew it would make a delicious addition to my recipe.


    And, boy, was I right! These pancakes turned out soft, fluffy, and sweet with cinnamon and eggnog flavor. Mmm! They definitely have the potential to become a holiday favorite in our house!


    Eggnog Pancakes


    • 1.25 cups almond flour/meal
    • 1/2 cup eggnog
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tbsp brown sugar
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • Pinch of salt


    1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
    2. Heat pan (or griddle) over medium heat and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
    3. Use a 1/4 cup to portion batter onto the pan/griddle.
    4. Cook each pancake for 2-3 minutes and then flip. Cook on the other side for about 1 minute.
    5. Serve with your favorite toppings.

    Makes 6 pancakes

    I’m not a fan of eggnog, but strangely I feel like I would love these pancakes. Maybe I’ll just have to try them out!

    Yum!! The more ways to incorporate egg nog into your life, the better I say!

    my grandfather is the only one that like egg nog in our family, so a few years ago he started making pancakes and biscuits the morning after christmas with the leftover – the whole family love them! sometime you’ll have to try making biscuits with it!

    These sound really good! I have some almond flour I need to use. I made your chocolate chip cookie dough dip yesterday and it was awesome! I added a tablespoon of natural peanut butter and that made it even better!


    Tina December 9, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    Yum! Glad it turned out well! 🙂


    Kerry @ Totes My Oats December 9, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    Yum! I bet the hint of the brown sugar went really well with the eggnog flavor!


    Katie @ Talk Less, Say More December 9, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    These look amazing! I was just thinking I needed to do some baking with my soy-nog, maybe pancakes should be it. 🙂

    I got my first taste of eggnog a few days ago in a Starbucks Eggnog Latte- I’m a fan!


    Sara @ fitcupcaker December 9, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Looks yummy! We drank egg nog for one of our 24 days of togetherness and I thought it tasted like bubble gum!

    Want! I haven’t had any eggnog yet this year. Cannot wait to have lots of it! Eggnog flavored everything! 🙂


    Amanda @ Eat More Rabbit Food December 9, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    What a great idea! So festive for the holidays too!


    Candice@allthingsyogi.com December 9, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    my dad would drool over this recipe. Great for egg nog enthusiasts!


    Molly @ Happy&Healthy December 9, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    YUM! Those sounds delicious, and perfect for Holiday mornings! Thanks!


    Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers December 9, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Sounds fantastic! Perfect for a Christmas morning!!

    I am not a huge fan of eggnog so I am not sure I would like these but thanks for the recipe!

    Ooh, looks super yummy! Saturday I make “special pancakes” for breakfast for my kids. They are huge eggnog fans, looks like we’ve got a winner for next Saturday’s breakfast!


    Kristen @ Change of Pace December 9, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Genius idea to use eggnog! 🙂


    Honeywhatscooking December 9, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    This looks awesome Tina. Never thought of using eggnog in pancakes. Nice.


    Beks December 9, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    I can’t usually stand eggnog except in baked goods (Mrs. Fields has a great eggnog cookie recipe that I’ve been making for cookie exchanges since I was ten!). I might have to try these. 🙂


    Karey @ Nutty About Health December 9, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Those sound & look wonderful! I love pancakes! 🙂


    Amanda Jewell December 9, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Darn! I wish I had seen this before I made brunch this morning! I’m definitely going to make these next Sunday. Btw, which almond flour do you use? I’ve noticed a lot of recipes have different results based on the brand/consistency of the almond flour & I don’t want to mess with the delicious, fluffy texture you’ve got going on!


    Katie December 9, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    That sounds quite tasty. I don’t like eggnog, but in pancake form it sounds pretty awesome. Good idea!


    Kelly@BalancedDaily December 10, 2012 at 9:27 am

    These sound delicious. I think I need to start making some recipes that taste like Christmas time because it certainly does not feel anywhere near Christmas down here in the 80 degree weather in Florida! I’m not complaining, but I do miss bundling up in the cold and it actually feeling like the holidays.


    Molly @ Just Your Average Athlete December 10, 2012 at 11:10 am

    LOVE that these are gluten-free! Can’t wait to make them 🙂


    Dee December 10, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    Just a note, not all egg nogs are gluten free. Some contain wheat as a thickening agent. Readers should def. check labels before purchasing as not all brands are safe.


    Christina @ The Beautiful Balance December 10, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    Eggnog in pancakes and waffles is ahhhmazing! These look so good.


    jennifer December 11, 2012 at 7:36 am

    I tried this and the batter turned out thick and sticky like cookie dough. How did you get yours to look like pancakes?


    Tina December 11, 2012 at 7:44 am

    My dough was pretty thin. What type of eggnog did you use? Did you use almond flour/meal?


    jennifer December 11, 2012 at 8:16 am


    I just used regular egg nog from my grocery store. I used whole wheat flour though…is that thicker?


    Tina December 11, 2012 at 8:19 am

    @jennifer: Yea, it’s quite a bit thicker. All-purpose flour might work?


    Ellie December 11, 2012 at 7:54 am

    These look devine. Being in the UK, eggnog isn’t something you see all the time but I’m going to keep a look out and see if I can get some. I normally use bananas to make my paleo pancakes so these are a great alternative for me to try.


    Meghan @ After the Ivy League December 13, 2012 at 10:08 am

    I’m definitely trying those eggnog pancakes! Pinned that recipe for later, love that you use almond flour so they’re already gluten free!


    Casey December 15, 2012 at 8:45 am

    I don’t like eggnog but we had some in the fridge, these were DELICIOUS! I’m eating them right now 😉 I like smaller pancakes and these made 12, had to cook for less time so they wouldn’t burn.


    Tina December 15, 2012 at 10:15 am

    Yay! So glad you liked them! 🙂
