Halvah Pancakes

Life is sweet when pancakes and halvah are involved. Even sweeter combined!

Stack them high or stack them low. Either way, these halvah pancakes taste de-lish.

I love halvah. I talk about it all the time, try to sneak them into most of my recipes, and I try to convince people that it's good for them. Because it is!

New to the halvah club? Don’t worry, I can guarantee you’ll instantly become a fan. Think sweet Middle Eastern sesame candy… like pistachio with a twist!

Halvah is a popular sweet treat in the Middle East and India. It's made from sesame seeds, which are ground and mixed with various flavorings. You can use it in both savory and sweet dishes. This halvah pancake recipe gets savory and sweet flavors from a blend of almond flour, tahini, and coconut sugar.

Whether this is your official introduction to halvah or you're already a long -time fan like me, I can definitely guarantee that you'll love this easy and delicious Halvah Pancakes recipe!
