This recipe was made in partnership with Love One Today. As always, all opinions are my own.

As a mom of three young children, it can be so hard to find quick and easy breakfast options that my kids will actually eat and that I feel good serving. But thankfully, this recipe checks all the boxes. It’s so easy to make, my kids can practically do it themselves. Plus, the addition of avocado helps to amp up the nutritional value while providing a source of filling fiber and healthy fats. Give it a try…I think it may just be your family’s new favorite breakfast as well.

What you’ll need

Avocado pancakes with strawberries

Whole grain flour- I use whole grain flour in this recipe to boost the overall nutrition content and fiber. I generally use whole wheat pastry flour to provide a soft, light texture without reducing the fiber, but you can also use oat flour as well.

Mashed avocado- The addition of avocado to these pancakes provides a creamy, fluffy texture that makes them irresistible. Plus, adding avocado also provides twenty essential vitamins and minerals, which makes me a happy mom too!

Milk- Adding milk to the pancake batter allows you to thin the batter for an easy to roll up pancake. Although I use cow’s milk, you can experiment with a variety of plant based milks as well.

Eggs- In pancake batter, eggs provide structure to allow the pancake to hold together (which is critical to the roll up pancake). Eggs also provide a source of high quality protein to help balance blood sugar while allowing you to feel satisfied.

How to make avocado pancakes (roll-up style!)

These roll up avocado pancakes couldn’t be easier to make. You just need a blender, a stove top, and your imagination!

Making avocado pancakes
  1. In a high-speed blender, add avocado, egg, lemon juice, and blend.
  2. Once well blended, add in dry ingredients and blend well until batter is smooth.
  3. Add milk as desired to thin batter. Note: pancakes should be thin enough to roll up easily.
  4. Once batter has been created, add butter onto a skillet or pan over medium heat.
  5. Once the butter has been melted, add ¼ cup scoops of batter into the pan at a time.
  6. Once batter begins to bubble slightly and edges of pancakes brown, flip over and continuing cooking on remaining side until pancake is cooked through.
  7. Once cooked, spread desired topping on pancakes, roll up, and serve.

FAQs

Can you make these ahead and store them?

Absolutely! That’s my favorite way to make these. I recommend making the pancakes ahead of time, storing in an air-tight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Then, when ready to enjoy, warm up the pancakes and add your preferred filling of choice, roll up, and enjoy.

What other ingredients can you add to the roll-up pancakes?

When it comes to roll-up pancakes, your options are almost limitless. I love to use yogurt, fruit puree, or even a hazelnut spread, but those are far from your only options. You may also enjoy nut butters, cream cheese, or even savory options such as mashed avocado or hummus!

Are these avocado pancakes vegan?

No. This recipe contains eggs for structure and therefore, is not vegan. You may wish to experiment with vegan egg alternatives, but this recipe has not been tested using those alternatives.

Is this recipe gluten-free?

No. This recipe includes whole wheat flour, which contains gluten. However, you can substitute oat flour to make this recipe gluten free. However, substitutions such as almond flour or coconut flour, although gluten free, often require additional changes in liquid ingredients and have not been tested in this recipe.

Are avocado pancakes good for blood sugar?

The combination of protein, healthy fats, and fiber in these pancakes provide the right formula for blood sugar balance. However, keep in mind, your blood sugar response is individual. If you want to understand exactly how these pancakes impact your blood sugar, make sure to test your blood sugar after eating.
