Almond Meal Pancakes

  • Almond Meal Pancakes

    • 1/2 c. almond meal
    • 1 egg
    • 2 T. milk or water (recipe called for coconut milk; I used skim milk)
    • 1/2 t. baking powder
    • splash vanilla
    • dash cinnamon

    Mix together and pour batter into a greased skillet at medium heat (keep the pancakes small as they are hard to flip).  Cook 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve with fruit, honey, cream cheese or other favorite topping.

    Variations: add berries, banana, chopped apples or applesauce to the batter. I plan to try subbing plain or Greek yogurt for the milk and see how that turns out.

    This recipe is for a single serving. About 445 calories, 21 g. protein, 12 g. carbs, 20 g. fat before toppings.

    These are delicious, rich and filling. I think another great breakfast would be half a portion of these pancakes with scrambled egg whites on the side.

    Want it. Plan it. Do it.

  • I have a almond waffle recipe that's really good as well. But I believe almond flour to be too high in fat for BFL. What are your thoughts?

    I plan on not eating any almond flour for the 12 weeks.
