Healthy, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Recipes: Almond Pancakes

These Wheat-Free Pancakes Are Perfect For a Low-Carb Brunch

Controlling cravings when you've cut carbs or gluten can be especially hard when it comes to breakfast or brunch. Between baskets of muffins and stacks of pancakes, there's often enough on the table to make your dietary restrictions dampen the morning fun. Luckily, you don't have to pass on a pancake breakfast if you whip up a batch of these wheat-free pancakes. Using almond flour and flaxseed means these dense, filling hotcakes are high in fibre (three grams per serving) as well as protein (six grams per serving).

Notes

These pancakes have almost no sugar, so serve with Greek yogurt, fresh fruit or your favourite maple syrup if you'd like to sweeten them.
