Grain-free Pancakes

by Ivory Soap

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

First, let me apologize for these pictures.  I have a new camera and I didn’t find the macro button until 30 seconds ago.  So, this and the next post WILL BE GRAINY, though the recipes are not.  HA!  I hate puns.

Anyway, a friend of mine with similar digestive issues suggested I try the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which eliminates grains entirely.  I FEEL awesome, but I was dying for a pancake.

Grain-Free, Remarkably Bread-like Pancakes

1.  Grind raw almonds in your coffee grinder until you have a cup of sticky flour, like this:

2.  Then add 3 eggs, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 T honey, and stir.  If your consistency is off, add bit of water or more almond flour.

3.  Cook like you would a normal pancake, but on a slightly lower heat level.  Suckers burn fast.  I think it’s the honey.

Entire recipe has 25 carbs.  If you eliminate the honey, it’s 8.

We use them for bacon egg sandwiches or cover them in butter and honey.

I have gone through all sorts of eliminations with various children and we are finally trying the SCD too! So far so good. I follow your blog anyway and was surprised to see and scd recipe pop up – perfet timing for us!

Oooh I like this recipe! I have been looking for good protein rich recipes–hubby does manly weight training and just found out his protein powder is laden with all sorts of nasty heavy metals (which finally convinced him to get his protein from *gasp* FOOD!) I get my almond flour from Trader Joe’s for a very reasonable price.

Wow. I didn’t know you could make pancakes with ground almonds. I need to go back and read up on the SCD since I work in nutrition. If you have a favorite web site on SCD, please point me in that direction. @ Lori, where can I read up on the heavy metals in protein powders?? If you live any where near a Whole Foods Store, or an HEB Super Store here in the South, they have oooodles of ground flours made of every thing. Happy Cooking and peaceful digestion to us all !

Also a great site is for finding food sources of nutrients. Here’s the one on protein:

I just made these as a way to get my 5-year-old to eat nuts and he LOVED them. He even said he prefers these to my regular wheat pancakes AND these were also easier than my regular pancakes.
