This is a fantastic recipe, gluten-free, dairy-free, and with tons of fiber, protein, and vitamins.  It’s easy to double (or halve).  If you are trying to lose weight but crave the deliciousness of carbs, this recipe is the ticket.

Almond meal is expensive, so you can substitute some flax-seed or even flour or ground oats (if you don’t mind a little gluten).  I used my coffee grinder to grind up a bunch of almonds– ended up being cheaper than buying almond meal.

I just doubled this recipe and am going to keep a few of these in the freezer for breakfasts!

Ingredients (makes about 2 servings)

1 c. almond meal  (Or 3/4 c. almond meal plus 1/4 c. ground flaxseed, or do any proportion of other ground nut or grain, just so the nut/seed/grain combination equals 1 cup! this is not a finicky recipe, so feel free to improvise.)

2 eggs

2 T oil

1/2 c water (or milk)

1/4 t salt

ground cinnamon or nutmeg, optional

Mix ingredients (batter should be runny), cook on skillet. Makes about 4 pancakes. If you make it using almond and flax meal, each serving should have about 10 grams of carbohydrates and 7 grams of fiber, and a ton of protein.
