Delicious Low-Carb Almond Flour Pancakes

Rated as 3.2 out of 5 Stars

"Delicious extra low-carb pancakes that are absolutely yummy. A special recipe that uses the microwave to quickly boil the almond flour to create pancakes that are soft and gooey like normal pancakes, not dry and bready like a muffin. Eat with sugar-free syrup, such as Log Cabin®. Kids love them!"

  1. Whisk water, almond flour, vegetable oil, cream, baking powder, and vanilla extract together in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Cook in the microwave on high until gooey batter forms, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  3. Let batter rest until cooled slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in egg until well-blended.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The contents of the pancake will remain slightly gooey inside when cooked.
  • More than one pancake can be made by doubling or tripling the ingredients.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I didn't have all of the ingredients. So I substituted. I used wheat flour, almond milk, half and half, coconut oil and almond extract. After I microwaved, it was lumpy almost like oatmeal. They...
