This recipe has about 14 net carbs per serving. We recommend making the pancakes smaller than usual. Use a little less than 1/4 cup batter per pancake. Since there's no flour in the recipe, the pancakes are very tender. If you make them too large, they might break apart when you flip them or transfer them from pan to the plate. The pancakes aren't as sweet as their full carb brothers so make sure you have a good sugar-free syrup to serve them with.
