Low Carb Almond Vanilla Pancakes

(by Dorene)

5 Tbsp. almond flour (you could also use other nut flours or even soy flour)

1 1/2-2 tsp. flax meal (this helps hold these together)

1 Tbsp. sour cream

3 Tbsp. water

1 egg

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp sea salt

8 drops of liquid stevia

1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract (no sweeteners in it like Simply Organic)

2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil

Mix all the above together. Let set a couple of minutes. If the consistency is too thick for your personal taste, you can add a bit more liquid (unsweetened almond milk, heavy whipping cream, or water).

Pour on nonstick griddle surface (I even drizzle a little oil on the pan and spray my spatula with Pam, because they can be a bit difficult to turn).

Recipe makes 2 large or 3 medium sized pancakes. We think they’re downright yummy.

You can add maple flavoring (carb-free) to your pancake batter and top with whipping cream. I also like Arlene’s Maple syrup, posted by Mike on the list sometime back. I’ve put it in this recipe section.

I figured out that I think this recipe has 3 net carbs, depending on what brand of almond flour you use.
