Cinnamon and Almond Pancakes
This recipe serves two and is gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. If you prefer a more fat controlling pancake then here is a link to my protein pancakes (with chocolate!!)
Cinnamon and almond pancakes
1 cup of almond flour (or half and add half a cup of plain or vanilla protein powder)
2 eggs (or 1 egg and ½ cup of egg whites)
1/4 cup of almond milk
1 tablespoon of coconut oil/butter
1 tbsp of honey (raw)
A dash of cinnamon and sea salt
Toasted almonds and plain yoghurt and banana to serve
Mix all ingredients in a bowl
Heat the oil in a thick bottomed sauté pan over a high heat.
Add the mix and stir quickly until the egg mix has just. The heat to low and continue to cook for a further 1 minute (more if you like your egg firmer).
These may not bubble like traditional pancakes
The Fat Controllers says: To increase protein content, use the protein powder. If you want to reduce starch further omit the banana.
Nutrition Nugget: Almonds are highly nutritious! We have long been wrongly misled to not eat nuts. In moderation they are perfect for us. People who eat nuts regularly tend to be leaner. Almonds have been associated with lowering cholesterol and are super high in fibre and calcium!
Happy Pancake day!
