Low-Carb Almond PancakesSubmitted by: JEZWYN
IntroductionAdapted from a recipe by Laura Dobson from About.com, but I wanted mine to still be light and bubbly. Adapted from a recipe by Laura Dobson from About.com, but I wanted mine to still be light and bubbly.
* 1 cup almond flour/meal
* 1 tsp baking powder
* 2 eggs
* 1/4 cup water (for puffier pancakes, you can use sparkling water )
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 T sweetener (I use Stevia because sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners are evil - if you use Stevia, you don't need as much sweetener because it's POWERFUL stuff!)
Makes six pancakes (10cm in diametre)
Nutritional Information: Each pancake has 1 gram effective carbohydrate, plus 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and 155 calories. (Spark calculates things a little differently since they don't have almond meal listed, so I selected ground almonds, which are slightly higher in carbs and fat).
You can use any toppings you want (keeping carbs in mind, of course) - mine tasted great with a sprinkling of sweetener and a tiny splash of lemon juice. YUM!
Number of Servings: 6
