Eggnog Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

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 (Gluten-Free)

  • Author: Tina


Makes 6 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.



  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
