Sugar Free Almond Pancakes (a low carb, healthier alternative)

Low Carb Waffles

This is a recipe I made in February but have been so busy with out of town guests for the past 3 weeks that I've gotten a bit behind in my posts.  It's a sugar free, almond based pancake and waffle mix that I made some delicious waffles with.  Topped with a pat of butter and sugar-free syrup, they were a great healthy option to carb heavy, sugar laden store bought mixes.  This dry mix is easily stored in the refrigerator or freezer.

Waffle and Pancake Mix

2 c finely ground almonds or almond meal
1/2 c oat bran
1 c vanilla flavored whey protein powder
2 T wheat bran flakes
2 T wheat germ
2 T vital wheat gluten
2 1/2 T baking powder
1 1/2 t salt

Blend ingredients in a food processor with a S blade.  Pulse a couple times until well blended.  Store in a Ziploc or other air tight container in the refrigerator or freezer.  Makes about 4 cups.  


Use 1 cup of your dry almond waffle mix
2 t sweetener
1/2 c half and half
1 egg beat with 1/4 c oil

Stir all together in a bowl while preheating your waffle iron.  Only stir until everything is moist, do not over stir.  Bake according to your waffle iron directions.  Serve with butter and syrup or cinnamon, splenda, whipped cream, or whatever you wish!  This is going to average about 6 carbs per waffle.

Mix just until blended
