Low-Carb Pancakes (Almond Flour)

Low-Carb Pancakes (Almond Flour)

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 packet sugar substitute
  • 2 large eggs - beaten
  • 1/3 cup seltzer water
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash of cinnamon
Simply combine all ingredients and cook on a hot (medium-high), lightly greased griddle or skillet. Dollop the batter in 1/4 cup amounts. Flip them when the underside is golden brown and cook the other side to golden brown.

Serve with sugar free syrups, or cool a bit and use as "bread" with low-carb spreads. (If using with non-sweet toppings, leave out sweetener and cinnamon.)

These low carb pancakes use almond flour as their base which adds a nutty flavor I think you'll like.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank baseball27 for this recipe.

One of the better low-carb pancake recipes I've found so far, although I do agree with the other comments about adding more sugar substitute.

I make some small ones (like cookies). I can munch on them all day since I'm diabetic. The almond meal is low carb & you can use it also for breading chicken or fish. Thanks!

Thanks JaeNezzy for the nutritional information! I wish I had read it sooner. It completely knocked me out of ketosis! I realize now that in the induction phase I should have steered clear of this. Overall though, not a bad recipe (not amazing either). Although, I will try the suggested modifications by Jessica to see if it improves it.

These came out great! I tweaked it a little though, taking out a little fat and adding some natural sugars. (I doubled it for later) I ground 1/2 cup almond slivers, mixed it with 1/2 cup flax meal. I added 1 egg and 2 egg whites, 1T veg oil, 1T milk, several dashes of cinnamon, dash of vanilla, and I ground up 1/2 an apple. Fried it with some pam. The rest of the ground up apple stuck to the magic bullet cup I added some water and put it on the pancakes. I also sprinkled the packet of sugar sub on top like powdered sugar. It was great! I may try the backing soda trick next time.

Can add a pinch of baking soda if you don't have the seltzer water. Definitely needs more sweetener than the recipe calls for. Otherwise... a pretty decent pancake substitute.

Pretty good for low carb pancakes. They looked just like pancakes, but the texture was different. I think more sugar substitute would make them a little better.

I cannot eat wheat or sugar, so this pancake meets my nutritional needs, plus tastes great, not goony.

I have used this recipe in a variety of ways such as with just plain tap water (makes a denser pancake) as well as omitted the cream and 1 egg, just adding more water to decrease calories and fat, though you could add butter on top to add flavor. This is a tasty breakfast served with SF syrup really takes care of my carb craving. Also the family love it.

I found then to have a slight eggie taste. Worth a repeat. Easy and quick to put together. With the almond flour they are very filling and give you the "stick to the ribs" feeling.

I agree about the nutrition information. I am new to low carbing and am trying to be very careful. Please include the number of carbs, fiber, sugar, and sugar alcohol (if any) in these recipes.

Thank you!

P.S. Great website!

Why is there no nutritional information? How does one know how many carbs are in this recipe or in your other "low-carb" breakfast recipes?? Help, please!

I substituted flax seed flour for the almond flour. I thought it was pretty good. I will have to try it with almonds

Pleasantly surprised by the taste - reminiscient of pecan pie when one puts sugar free syrup on it.
