Crispy egg-free low-carb almond pancakes
- 1 cup 225 ml (100 g) almond flour
- 3 tbsp 3 tbsp unflavored protein powder, pea protein
- 1½ tsp 1½ tsp (5 g) ground psyllium husk powder
- ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ¼ tsp salt
- 1 cup 225 ml unsweetened almond milk
- 1½ tsp 1½ tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp 2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
- coconut oil for frying
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- Stir in the almond milk to create a thick batter.
- Add the vanilla extract and the unsweetened applesauce and mix well.
- Heat a skillet with coconut oil on medium-high heat until the coconut oil is melted and the skillet is hot.
- 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.
- 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.
Keeping the pancakes small makes them easier to flip.
