Recipe: Low-carb almond pancakes
Wow! I never thought low-carb pancakes could be so delicious! These were absolutely amazing! I used a bit of sugar-free maple-flavoured syrup on them and was in Heaven!
This recipe is courtesy of Laura Dolson's Low Carb Diets site at About.com.
- 1 cup almond flour (= "almond meal" / "ground almonds" -- all the same thing)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder (not in the original recipe but it was suggested by someone who reviewed the recipe as a way to make the pancakes puffier - and it worked...)
- 1 tbsp low-carb sweetener (i.e. Splenda)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional - amazing!) (updated March 8, 2011)
Cook them in the usual fashion. This makes three large pancakes or six smaller ones. Just know that they won't bubble on top in the pan like "regular" pancakes do.
Simply put, these are the best pancakes I've ever had.
There are six net carbs in the entire batch.
