Low carb pancakes – almond flour

Pancakes. We love them. end of story

While I love making pancakes,  I think I’ve had pancakes once in my life at a restaurant (when I first came to Canada), and wanted to have the traditional Canadian pancakes with maple syrup.  The high sugar-high wheat content would really make me regret eating it afterwards so I just avoid it all together #bloatingproblems

To satisfy my love cravings for pancakes , I decided to make my own, and actually make them taste soo much more delicious and guilt free.  I have been making these for quite a while and always seem to mess up the ingredients.  I never measure anything, I just measure with my eyes (got it from my mom).  The issue when you want to make sophisticated recipes like pancakes, is you end up messing up the recipe and it really doesn’t look or taste like it does on a pinterest image.

Eating low carb has played a huge role in reducing inflammation in my body. If you do experience any type of joint or muscle pain I encourage you to start reducing starches from your nutrition – especially simple sugar, wheat, processed foods – you can read more about this lifestyle by reading a couple of amazing books that made a huge difference in my life:

Books

How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy!

Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia

Disclaimer: I don’t believe in diets – for weight loss. I think they have a short term approach and most of them lack education so you don’t have to rely on them after the “30 days” are over. These books won’t give you a meal plan to follow and restrict you to 1000 calories a day. They were simply introducing a new way of living that will help you thrive and be healthy and also educate you a lot on nutrition and healthy eating.

Now, back to the low carb pancakes 🙂 I have been making these for at least a month to make sure I know exactly what I used and how much of it.To keep this post sweet and short, I want to jump straight to the recipe today.
