I ended up feeling bamboozled, but then I realized that it was my fault. Focusing on carb counts is great, but I need to make sure to see the WHOLE picture and consider the calorie count of the ingredients I use. I guess I am bound to make mistakes on this journey, but I kept thinking, "I could have had a cheeseburger for less calories!" The lesson has been learned... for pancakes at least! I am still sharing the recipe because it was quite good and if you are just doing a plain old low carb diet it could become part of your repertoire or if you are gluten free, this is a great recipe!
Low Carb Pancakes
Yield: 7 1/4 cup pancakes
1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1tbsp. Tastefully Simple Mulling Spice (or use a sweetener of your choice and cinnamon)
Mix all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour pancake batter onto a preheated griddle. Cook until small bubbles form on the top and the bottom is brown. Flip and cook on the other side (less than 1 minute). Serve with butter, jam, or sugar free maple syrup.
