Low Carb Pancakes - No Soy!

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by ThatSouthernBelle

I follow the Primal Blueprint eating plan so grain/starch based carbs are a NO NO! Fats, proteins, fruits and veggies however aren't off limits. These use almond meal or almond flour instead of regular flour so they're "meatier" than regular pancakes. These smell like heaven when cooking! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Top with honey or real maple syrup. Found this recipe on Marksdailyapple.com . Mark notes, "One word of caution on this recipe: I would suggest keeping the size of these almond pancakes on the small side. Larger pancakes have a tough time sticking together."

I used 4 egg whites instead of whole eggs to save on cholesterol. I was surprised at how fluffy they were without any baking powder to make them rise.These are great but they stuck to my greased skillet very badly but I had it on medium high instead of medium heat. Also you are saving in carbs but if you put maple syrup on top you are gaining carbs. 53 g carbs in 1/4 cup of maple syrup. You have to put something on these because they are so very dry. So look up maple pancake syrup (low-carb) by beach girl on food.com and there is a recipe that is easy and only 1.7 g per 1/4 cup.
