These pancakes are a nice low-carb alternative to regular pancakes. After bringing back the incredible book The Real Meal Revolution from our trip to Cape Town in 2014, I’ve been trying to reduce carbs for the entire family, including the children. I tried many different low-carb pancakes, and it took me some time to find the right substitute for wheat flour and still create something that the kids would eat. These pancakes here are my children’s favorites so far. They like them with a mix of applesauce and mango sauce and fresh fruits.
You need the following ingredients:
- 1 banana
- 3 eggs
- 2 tbsp applesauce
- 3 tbsp almond flour
- 50 ml (~ 1 and 3/4 oz ) almond milk (or any other you prefer)
- for serving: fruites, applesauce, and/or Superfoods such as raw cacao nibs and dried mulberries
This makes around 7 small pancakes (∅15cm, ~ 6 inches in diameter).
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and puree everything thoroughly with a hand blender. You can also use a normal blender if you don’t have a hand blender.
It should look as follows:
Then fry the pancakes with coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Instead of coconut oil you can also use ghee if you prefer. I usually make 1 small pancakes at a time in a ∅20cm (8 in) frying pan. They should be nicely brown at the end.
Serve them with a mix of applesauce and mango sauce and some fruits. In the picture I also sprinkled some raw cacao nibs and dried mulberries on top. They are also called “Superfoods” because of their health benefiting properties. Delhaize Luxembourg offers a great variety of those Superfoods. You can also experiment with other sauces, fillings and garnishes as well.
