    Hey, I was wondering what I could swap with Almond flour?

    Check out our guide to Low Carb and Keto Baking, the Substitution section. 1 cup of almond flour can be substituted for 1/3 cup of coconut flour https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes/baking

    Hi, Delia! Be sure to use oat fiber, not oat flour. The fiber is made from the hull, which is not actually part of the grain, while oat flour is made from grains. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/ingredients-to-avoid

    I followed the grams in the recipe and unlike the other recipes I tried on Dietdoctor.com, I was not at all impressed. They came out very "gritty" and not fluffy at all.

    These tasted and smelled absolutely nasty. Like unseasoned eggs that had gone slightly bad with a hint of lemon (I skipped the blueberries), and the consistency was like an omelette, but less smooth and fluffy. I was really looking forward to pancakes for breakfast, what a disappointment.

    So sorry these didn't work out for you! If you decide to try again, I would ensure that all your ingredients are fresh. That could possibly make a difference for you.

    Hello Tim....could you tell us if the whipping cream is used on top of the pancakes? Or did you add it to the ingredients when making them?

    Strange recipe. The mixture came out very thick, similar to a thick cake batter, almost like cookie dough. I thinned it out with some almond milk (150 ml) and in the end they were tasty and held together fairly well. I used grams, not volume, but generally DD recipes work well in grams. Who knows - maybe I'm just not a "thick pancake" kinda gal. Next time I'll go with the DD French crepes!

    I winged it: I live rural in N. Europe so not everything is available here. I set it down to 45g of psyllium husk instead of oat flour and increased the almond flour to 95g. I used lemon juice because lemons are out of season. I knew it would be thick, so I added 100ml of cream. Made 8 thick and delicous pancakes *and* a loaf of bread--my solution because I didnt have all day to keep making pancakes. 10/10, would fight someone over.

    I am glad you were able to adjust these to work with the ingredients you had access to. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Kerry, is there any replacement with oat fiber? I can not find it in the local market here. We only have all sorts of oat flour, and I knew it is not a replacement. I didn't buy it.

    Unfortunately there is not a good replacement for oat fiber. Most people order it online. Look for Lifesource brand from Netrition or Amazon.
