Low-Carb Pancakes - Almond Meal

I actually think these low-carb pancakes taste better than the old white flour kind, and almond meal is healthier as well. Almond meal (same as almond flour) differs a bit from one batch to the other, so you may have to adjust the amount of liquid to get the thickness you want.

Laura's Cooking Tip: Which Oil Should I Use?


  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water (for puffier pancakes, you can use sparkling water)
  • 2 T oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 T sweetener


Mix ingredients together and cook as you would other pancakes. I like to use a nonstick pan with a little oil. The only real difference is that they won't "bubble" on top the same way as regular pancakes. Flip them when the underside is brown.

Serve with sugar-free maple syrup, Easy Three Berry Syrup, strawberry topping, or other low carb topping.

Yield: Six 4-inch pancakes

Perfect Pancakes!, Guest Socalpaleogal

I have made these multiple times and they always come out perfect (see pic). My whole family (ages 1 year, 4 years, 10 years and 42 years) all love them. I use mineral water instead of regular water and let the batter fluff up for 15 minutes before cooking them. I use safflower oil for my oil and 1/2 tbs of stevia instead of 1tbs.
