Almond Flour Protein Pancakes

Guess what’s coming at you early this week? That’s right.. it’s What to Eat Tuesday Wednesday!! I’m going to be updating a few things on the site tomorrow so it’ll be down for most of the day and maybe even some into Thursday, BUT I didn’t want you to miss our, ok MY, favorite post of the week!

You HAVE to try these. They have so much more staying power than regular protein pancakes and they’re super easy to make. You probably even have all of the ingredients on hand except the almond flour. You may be wondering why I used that instead of regular whole wheat flour.. that’s because it’s super low carb. Check out the nutrition stats! Yes, it is higher in fat but before you go throwing out this recipe, they’re good fats – the kind your body needs every day.

If you can’t find almond flour in your own town, you can always get it here from iHerb. And don’t forget, first time customers get $5 OFF their order (no matter what that amount is) with this coupon code –> COZ833. So basically you get the almond flour free and just have to pay for shipping! #winning

Anyways, have I convinced you yet? Try these. stat.

ps… No, I do not eat my pancakes with that ridiculous amount of syrup. It was for photographic purposes only.

pps… don’t forget to look for the question at the bottom of the post and comment. I’ll be starting to do giveaways in the future when more people get involved :)

    These are just what I needed! I’m recently gluten and lactose free so these are right up my alley!!

    I tried these but the batter was really extremely runny! I followed the instructions exactly! I used pure almond meal, that’s the same as almond flour right?

      Hey Brooke! Yup, same thing. The batter is a lot thinner than “normal” pancakes. If you didn’t like the consistency, you can always make them thicker by using less almond milk and/or liquid egg whites.
