These super fluffy pancakes are a great gluten-free alternative to the usual pancakes made with wheat-based flours. Using almond flour also makes the pancakes super tender and a little harder to flip. Just be patient and wait until they are cooked as instructed on the first side before turning them over.
Add 3 tablespoons of the butter to a large bowl and melt in the microwave, 30 to 60 seconds. Allow the bowl to cool slightly, then add the brown sugar and almond milk and whisk to combine. Add the eggs and whisk until smooth. Add the almond flour, baking powder and salt and whisk until the mixture becomes a thick batter. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the remaining butter to the pan and swirl to coat. The butter should bubble vigorously but not brown. If it begins to brown, turn the heat down slightly. Scoop a heaping 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan, using a small spoon to help coax the batter out and spread it to about 4 inches in diameter. Repeat to add one more pancake, taking care leave at least one inch in between. Cook until the surface of the pancakes is smooth with several tiny bubbles starting to pop up and the underside is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Be patient because undercooked pancakes will be very hard to flip.
When the pancakes are ready, gently work a thin, wide spatula underneath each one, then flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes more until the second side is golden brown. Transfer to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Carefully wipe out the pan and repeat with the remaining butter and batter to make 4 more pancakes in 2 batches.
