Almond Meal Pancakes

We really enjoy pancakes, but even when I serve them with a protein such as sausage, we can end up feeling like we had too many carbohydrates.  That’s why recently I decided to try making almond meal/flour pancakes.

This recipes only makes five pretty large pancakes, but that was enough for us.  As you can see, the pancakes were pretty thick, and we found out they are also very filling.  Next time I will make them smaller.

The picture doesn’t show it, but we did put syrup on them.  They were good pancakes, and the kids liked them.  They just found them to be very filling, which is not a bad thing when it comes to feeding boys.  I’ll definitely be making them again.

If you mix this together in a four cup glass measuring cup, you can then easily pour the batter onto the skillet.

We feel the same way about pancakes here! The family loves them, but I want more protein, less carbs. Thanks for this recipe! It looks great, and I can’t wait to try it.

I’ve made several variations of these for the exact same reason as you.Too many carbs at breakfast usually means everyone wants to lay around after eating instead of doing their chores lolExcited to try your version over the weekend:)

I noticed you used a whole teaspoon of baking soda (not powder) but nothing acidic to activate it.They didn’t have a soapy or bitter taste to them?I normally use honey, molasses, maple syrup, and/or almond or coconut milk with cider vinegar (non-dairy “buttermilk”) when I use baking soda and only 1/4 tsp per cup of dry ingredients for pancakes.Just wondering…

Just made these and they were great! I added a pinch of nutmeg and a splash of white vinegar to activate the baking soda. Ate with strawberries and maple syrup. Thanks! I’m stuffed.

Seems to me that almond meal is coarser than almond flour, which I have and love. Suppliers?

I’m new to gluten free cooking and all I have right now (I’m on a very limited budget since I’m disabled) is homemade coconut flour would that work, or I have rolled oats and just got some steel cut could I make either of those into a flour also, and use them or a combo of the 2, or maybe 3 as I have some almonds and could make that into flour I’m sure I might have to dry it some, any suggestions, I’d love them as I’m also caring for 3 grandkids who love pancakes.I really do welcome any ideas or suggestions for gluten cooking on a frugal budget, I guess is a way to say it, I already make my own coconut milk, butter and, flour, and am slowly adding items when I can, so any ideas on inexpensive maybe like priority items you can suggest are welcome.

Im think the almond pancakes will be delish..I use a lot of rice and corn as substitue for wheat…this will be a refreshing change!
