    Oh my! Those look and sound incredible. As soon as my move is behind me, and my kitchen is unpacked, I’ll be making these! I pinned them so I won’t forget them.

    Can I substitute other dairy free milks for the almond milk? I know almond milk is quick rich so wondering if that i why you chose this milk over coconut or rice milk. Thanks so much for all you wondrful recipes!

    These look delish! Is there anything I could use to substitute for the tapioca flour, as I have all ingredients but that?

    I’ve made these 3 or 4 times now, my family LOVES them! My daughter is ultra picky and can detect “abnormal” food a mile away. She actually asks for them. We added another 1 c. of almond flour and 1/4 c. tapioca starch because the way we made them, they were more crepe-like (which were yummy, too!)

    Funny story….The first time I made them, I asked my hubby if he wanted some “lemony” pancakes. He said, “Lemony? Did you do that on purpose?” I said, “Yes.” He agreed to try them and he LOVED them!
