Almond Meal Pancakes

By Kimberly Roberto, co-author of Maximized Living Nutrtion Plans

Delicious, no-fuss pancakes made from almond meal. Top with the strawberry sauce from the Maximized Living Nutrition Plans book to complete this recipe.  Even though pure maple syrup is “natural”, it still spikes insulin which is not ideal.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ground almonds (or storebought almond meal)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons xylitol (or use stevia to taste)
  • 1 organic egg
  • 4 additional organic egg whites
  • butter

Mix almonds, baking powder, cinnamon, baking powder, xylitol, and egg.  In a seperate bowl, whisk egg whites to soft peaks.  Fold egg whites into the almond mixture.  Heat a non-toxic skillet (no teflon!), add a pat or two of butter.  Drop batter into hot pan to size you prefer – silver dollar size to CD size.  When browning occurs around the edges flip and cook the other side.
