Recipe by Annacia
While I realize that whole wheat is a better choice for diabetics. As an insulin dependent diabetic myself I find this an acceptable recipe for a very occasional pancake urge. Top with a drizzle of no sugar added syrup or my favorite of unsweetened apple sauce.
- 1 1⁄4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 3⁄4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute (or sugar)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups enriched soymilk, plain or 1 1⁄2 cups vanilla
- about 5 tablespoons almond oil or corn oil, divided
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cider or 1⁄2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup slivered almonds, roasted
Directions See How It's Made
- Whisk together flour, oats, Splenda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
- In another bowl, whisk together soy milk, 3 tablespoons oil, eggs, almond extract and vinegar.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ones and whisk just until mixed.
- Fold in almonds.
- Use some remaining oil to lightly grease a large skillet or griddle pan, and heat over medium heat. Ladle 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
- Brown each cake on both sides, flipping once, and using more oil as necessary.
