CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 5
  • Preparation Time: 5
  • 1 cup almond flour (or you can simply add ground almonds to your usualy pancake mix)
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk or water
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey or
  • agave nectar
  • a dash each of ground cinnamon and salt
  • OPTIONAL ADDITIONS
  • toasted almonds
  • plain yogurt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Bring a lightly oiled sauté pan to medium-high heat. When pan is hot, pour batter to form pancakes, leaving ample space between each to allow batter to spread. Unlike traditional pancakes these will not bubble, so watch for the edges to brown, then gently flip over and brown the other side.
  3. Serve hot, topped with toasted almonds, yogurt, or fresh fruit. Makes about 6 pancakes.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
Great for breakfast, apres ski, and during training. These pancakes are low in sugar and overall carbohydrates while high in protein and fibre- much different than the typical nutrition profile of a normal pancake! And trust me, when you need energy on a long day, they deliver. The almond flour delivers the right ratio of carbs, protein and fat, allowing you to skip a sugar crash midway through the morning.
