ALMOND MEAL PANCAKES

June 1, 2009 at 1:17 pm Leave a comment

Pancakes were and are still my favorite childhood breakfast.  Unfortunately, traditional pancakes are not the most nutritional breakfast (or diet healthy) thing to eat.  Using almond meal (also called almond flour) is a great way to turn make this yummy breakfast into a healthy, yummy breakfast.  In addition, this recipe is low on the glycemic index!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup almond flour

1/4 cup agave nectar

2 eggs

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon

1/2 tsp baking soda

oil for sauteing

cinnamon,  vanilla extract ( all optional)

Mix ingredients together and cook as you would other pancakes. I spray the pan with a little olive oil to keep the pancakes from sticking.  Just pour batter onto a medium-heated pan and flip on each side.  This makes about 6 small or 3 large pancakes.  Refer to this link for information on agave nectar/syrup.

Optional- you can substitute 1/2 cup of the almond meal for 1/2 cup of flaxseed meal if you’re interested in adding some fiber.  Other ideas include mixing in pumpkin butter or carob or chocolate chips for added flavor.

Some favorite toppings I use:

– pumpkin butter

– almond butter

– carob chips

– fresh fruit (bananas, strawberries, berries)

– blueberry topping (take frozen blueberries and microwave with 1 tsp of cornstarch and 1 tsp of water for about 1 minute on high)
