Crispy egg-free low-carb almond pancakes

Crispy egg-free low-carb almond pancakes

These thin, egg-less, dairy-free, low-carb vegan pancakes are exceptionally crispy and delicious. The taste almost reminds you of parathas (pan-fried Indian flatbread). If you eat butter, replace the coconut oil with butter and they will taste even more amazing. Switch it up by serving them with either a savory or sweet topping.

Instructions

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Stir in the almond milk to create a thick batter.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and the unsweetened applesauce and mix well.
  4. Heat a skillet with coconut oil on medium-high heat until the coconut oil is melted and the skillet is hot.
  5. Scoop about 3 tablespoons of batter into the skillet, using a spatula to smooth the batter into a pancake about 3" (7 cm) in diameter.
  6. Let cook for 3-4 minutes or until the edges begin to firm up. When the edges are firm, flip the pancake to the other side and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

Tip

Keeping the pancakes small makes them easier to flip.

    Interesting recipe. I may try it as a chapati/paratha substitute and use chickpea flour and leave out the cinnamon...maybe use garam masala..? Or, add some tumeric, ginger, and fresh cilantro..? There are a lot of options to do with this recipe!

    You'll want to be sure the ingredients are clean. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/ingredients-to-avoid

    I'm not exactly sure. You may be able to omit it completely or you could try a small amount of mashed banana or sweet potato. You may want to add slightly less banana or sweet potato and add a little more water so the consistency will be similar to applesauce. (Keep in mind that this may affect the carb count.)

    Not that I am aware of. You may want to try one of our other pancake recipes if you need to skip the protein powder. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes/keto-pancakes

    Not a great recipe when you have to buy expensive protein powder to avoid an egg, and then buy unsweetened apply sauce, that then ends up getting thrown out as you have to buy too much - if in Britain you can find such a thing.
    Perhaps give the weight of a fresh apple so one can make it as needed. But then high in carbs either way. Glad I'm not allergic to eggs but don't want to eat them first thing in the morning and then every day.

    Can I use regular cow milk?

    It's not recommended due to the sugar content. Here's our dairy guide for more info! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/dairy

    Hello! Is it possible to replace the protein powder with collagen powder? That's what I have on hand. Thanks!

    Hi, Melissa! This would not be recommended, as these products act differently and will produce a different texture.
