Low Carb & Diabetic Almond Pancakes Recipe

Whilst on my hunt for low carb recipes for breakfast all I could seem to find was the idea of having lots of eggs, bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes. This has really put me off as I've been struggling to have a variety of breakfasts in my diet whilst trying to cut out carbs. I was lucky to spot this recipe online after searching for a few hours! 

Almond Pancakes

You will need:
1 cup of ground almonds or almond flour (this is around 150g); 
2 eggs; 
1/4 cup of water (you can use sparkling to make them more puffy); 
1/4 teaspoon of salt; 
and 1 tablespoon of any sweetener. 

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, add your wet ingredients, and give a good mix. I used a general food mixer for this as I'm pretty lazy.

The mixture will look very grainy when done, this is fine, it's the ground almonds in the mix. It should be quite a thick mixture as these pancakes are very similar to American style pancakes. 

Pop them in the frying pan for around 2-3 minutes each side until golden and cooked throughout. You can use oil to fry but I just used FryLight spray. 

And here they are all finished! I had these with maple syrup and bananas, but you could just have them with fresh fruit or cream cheese. They are really filling too, something which I wasn't expecting! This was only a small side plate I ate these from, and I have three very small ones, could only manage the two!
