Step 1: Making Buttermilk

Begin your pancake adventure by combining 1 cup of almond milk with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. This clever mix creates a dairy-free 'buttermilk', giving our pancakes their signature fluffiness. Set aside for it to curdle, which will take about 5 minutes. It's a simple step but sets the foundation for pancake perfection!
Pro Tip: Let the mixture sit until it slightly thickens for best results.

Step 2: Mixing Dry and Wet Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: 1 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup tapioca flour, 1 teaspoon xanthan gum, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons of baking powder, ensuring an even blend for that ideal pancake texture. In another bowl, whisk your wet ingredients: 2 tablespoons of agave nectar, 2 eggs, the previously set aside almond milk mixture, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. The aroma of vanilla mixed with the sweetness of agave will have your kitchen smelling like a dream in no time!
Pro Tip: Whisk the dry ingredients well to avoid any lumps in the batter.

Step 3: Combining Ingredients

Gently pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, whisking as you go to create a smooth batter. This step is all about blending these elements to form the base of your pancakes. If the batter appears too thick, add warm water one tablespoon at time until you reach the desired consistency—think thick but pourable, like a classic pancake batter.
Pro Tip: Avoid overmixing to keep the pancakes light and airy.

Step 4: Cooking Pancakes

Heat up your skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it. Use an ice cream scoop for consistent size and pour the batter onto the skillet. Spread it gently with the back of a spoon. Watch as the edges start to firm up - once they do, flip the pancake over and let it cook for another minute or so. The golden-brown hue it takes on will be your cue to its readiness. Repeat with the remaining batter until you've cooked all your pancakes.
Pro Tip: Lightly pressing down on the pancakes once flipped helps them cook evenly.

Step 5: Serving

Serve these delightful pancakes with your choice of toppings. My family adores them with a bit of Earth Balance butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup, but don't hesitate to top with your favorite fruits or nuts for an added burst of flavor. Personalize your pancake stack and watch them disappear in no time!
Pro Tip: Warm the maple syrup for an extra cozy breakfast experience.
