Adapted 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.
Number of Servings: 6


    * 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!)


Mix ingredients together and cook as you would other pancakes. I like to use a nonstick pan with a little olive oil.

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!

    Registered just to thank you for the terrific recipe. I swapped a scoop of vanilla protein powder for some of the almond flour and left out the flavored syrup. Yum! - 7/25/12

    I went and bought almond meal Saturday (very expensive!) and made them on Sunday! Yummy! Been on Atkins 2 mnths and craving something bread like. I ate them with peanut butter and sugar free syrup! I will make these again!! - 8/1/11

  • Didn't much like it to be honest. Had to make the kids eat it. Won't be eating again. I guess it's just not my cup of tea. - 8/7/17

    Made these today. Only change I made was I used some Sugar free French Vanilla coffee syrup instead of water. They came out great! S/O said they were better than regular pancakes. Teen son said they were good but too dry for him ( Though neither me nor dad thinks they are dry) Very good! A keeper! - 5/25/14
