Recipe: Almond Flour Pancakes

recipe image from remote site

These Almond Flour Pancakes are my favorite gluten-free recipe! They are low-carb, keto-friendly, and easy to make with just 5 main ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (use sugar-free syrup for keto)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or any other liquid oil)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons almond milk or water (as needed, to thin the batter)

Instructions

Skillet Pancakes

  • Preheat a skillet over medium-low heat on the stove. As it heats, stir together the almond flour, eggs, maple syrup (if using), olive oil, baking powder, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. The batter will be a little thicker than traditional pancake batter, and will continue to thicken as it sits in the bowl. If you need to thin it out a little, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of almond milk or water, but I don't recommend adding much more liquid, or it might change the texture of the pancakes.

Recipe: Vegan Mayonnaise

recipe image from remote site

What I love about this homemade vegan mayonnaise, besides how fresh it is and the short list of real ingredients – is how simple it is to make. This egg-free mayo is the real deal, minus the eggs and it’s essentially the same process I take when I make a traditional mayonnaise. Of course, it also tastes incredible and it behaves just like the traditional mayonnaise we all know. It’s great on sandwiches, amazing on homemade pasta and potato salads, it’s great for dips and all the rest.

  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cup Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions

1) Add all of the ingredients except the olive oil to your high speed blender. (I used my Vitamix)
