There are more days than I can count where I’m rushing out the door with the kids frantically trying to get a quick, nutritious breakfast that we can eat on the go.
Yes, I admit: I’m not a morning person. I will squeeze every last minute of sleep I can before I actually get up. And that usually means I’m running late taking the kids to school or other activities.
That’s why I absolutely love this Grain-Free Pancake Muffins to Go recipe from Kelly Smith of The Nourishing Home. There’s even a dairy-free option. It’s so simple to make, and I bake them the night before so we can just grab and go.
Where to Get Baking Essentials
I get my other baking supplies like baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, etc. either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Organic vanilla extract, for instance, is about $5 at my local health food store and $5.30 on Amazon. But it’s only $3.95 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.

- 1/3 cup plain coconut milk yogurt (or coconut milk)
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (or coconut oil), melted
- 1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1¾ cups blanched almond flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 3 large eggs
- ¼ cup diced strawberries
- ¼ cup whole blueberries
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 8 muffin cups in a 12-cup muffin tin with coconut oil. Set aside.
- Place all of the liquid ingredients except the eggs into a blender or food processor. Then place all of the dry ingredients on top. Cover and blend on low 10–15 seconds just until well combined. (Batter will be thick.)
- Add the eggs and blend on low about 15–20 seconds, then increase to high and blend 20–30 seconds, just until eggs are incorporated into the batter. (Do not overmix or muffins will not be tender.)
- Transfer the muffin batter to a bowl and fold in the berries. Evenly divide the pancake muffin batter among the 8 prepared muffin cups.
- Bake for 15–18 minutes, until slightly golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
- Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool 2–3 minutes in the tin. Run a knife around the edges of each cup and invert the pan over a sheet of parchment. Then grab a couple and go!
