Healthy almond pancakes
I am nuts abut nuts.
And that´s what I had for breakfast today. After a long vacation, with loads of delicious food in 2 different continents, I actually craved for some healthy pancakes. These fantastic and healthy almond pancakes are made using almond flour which is high in fibre, protein and propped with nutrients such as healthy monosaturated fatty acids, vitamin E and it is gluten free. These healthy almond pancakes will stabilize your bloodsugar, boost your satiety level and generally make you smile (as they are so good and guilt-free!).
Be sure to check out the guilt- free facts at the bottom, and also to try out the Fluffy protein pancakes made using coconut flour.
Healthy almond pancakes
Perfect as a healthy breakfast, and any-time snack. Supermoist, gluten free, low- carb, low, calorie and most important propped with fibers, protein and nutrients.
0,5 dl milk of choice (soy/oat/rice/normal/lactose-free)
0,5 dl water
1 pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon cardemomme, grounded
1 teaspoon baking powder
40 grams organic almond flour, fat reduced (I use this)
2 teaspoons stevia sugar, granulated (I use this)
1 teaspoon psyllium husk (fibre supplement) OR 2 tablespoons Coconut flour
- Whip egg and egghvites togheter to an airy consistence. Add water and milk.
- Blend in the dry ingredients. Let the batter rest for 5-10 min.
- Prepare in a pan ca. 7-9 small pancakes. Use the lid when cooking.
- Eat all at once with for example fresh berries or healthy jam (see Tips) and vanilla quark, or greek yoghurt. You can also save the remnainder in a plastic bag, and snack on later.
Guilt- free facts:
- Low carb- Low calorie- Gluten free- Grain free- All natural- Low fat- Nutrient dense- High fibre- High protein.
- Several studies show that almonds help increase satiety level, and hence may reduce the need for snacking.
- Use the organic almond flour (fat reduced)from the norwegian Funksjonell mat for light, healthy pancakes with a lower calorie content. For those of you who don´t get a hand on that I recommend to look in the store (or online) for an organic almond flour that is fat reduced. You can also make your own almond flour by grinding almonds in a food processor, on high speed, but the pancakes will be more dense in texture and in energy (calories + fat).
- Make your own healthy blueberry jam by simmering blueberries and just a tad Stevia until desired sweetness.
As you may have noticed I have been traveling the last 3 weeks, but now I am BACK; and I will share some of my amazing food- journeys with you guys the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
