Almond flour pancakes

Almond flour pancakes make a great, nutritious, low carb, gluten free breakfast. The quantities given will make four. If you are the only one eating them, why not cook all four and use any remaining pancakes, cold, as a substitute for bread?

Almonds have a low Glycemic Index (or GI) value, making them suitable for anyone who suffers from both celiac disease and diabetes, both autoimmune conditions. I have added cinnamon, as firstly I LOVE it, and also it is said to be beneficial in improving blood sugar levels.

If you don't have natural yoghurt at hand, you can substitute this with non-sweetened almond milk, either purchased or home made.

Almond flour pancake with lemons


  • 1 egg
  • 90g (3oz) almond flour
  • plain (natural) yoghurt
  • butter or coconut oil for frying
  • 1/8th teaspoon ground cinnamon


Break the egg into a bowl or jug and whisk. Add the almonds, cinnamon and enough yoghurt to form a batter.

Heat the butter or coconut oil (as I  used in the photograph) in a small frying pan and when melted pour in a little of the pancake batter. Cook for a minute or two until it begins to set. Flip the pancake over to cook the other side.

They make a filling start to the day or a wonderful dessert, served with...

  • additional yoghurt and a little brown sugar or sweetener
  • honey
  • maple syrup 
  • coconut nectar
  • summer berries
  • or ice cream and a small sliced banana

If you are diabetic why not try one of the many varieties of DaVinci Gourmet Sugar Free Syrups on your almond flour pancakes? I adore the vanilla and butterscotch flavors!
