LuAnn's Low-Carb Almond Pancakes

This is one of the recipes I developed for the Fast Track to Fitness website where I was the recipe editor for several years. Despite an unconventional list of ingredients, these high-protein, low-carb pancakes are surprisingly fluffy and attractive - perfectly suitable for the family breakfast table.

Yield: 6 (4 inch) pancakes



  • 2 whole eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup finely ground almond meal (a.k.a. almond flour)
  • 1 (1/3-cup) scoop vanilla-flavored low-carb/high protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Toppings (optional)

  • Sugar-free syrup and/or fresh fruit


  1. Carefully separate the eggs, placing the yolks in a mixing bowl and the whites in a separate small bowl. Set the egg whites aside.
  2. Whisk the water into the egg yolks in the mixing bowl until smooth. Add the almond meal, protein powder, flax seeds and salt. Stir until well mixed. (Mixture will be thick).
  3. Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the almond meal mixture until moderately well mixed. (Some small flecks of egg white may remain).
  4. Spray a large, heavy, flat-bottomed skillet or pancake griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat to medium heat.
  5. Spoon the batter onto the heated skillet or griddle, forming four 4-inch pancakes. Cook on the first sides until the edges appear dry, bubbles cover the tops of the pancakes and the undersides are lightly browned. Flip and cook until the second sides are also lightly browned.
  6. Serve hot, with toppings, if desired.
