So, by now, most of you know how obsessed I am with my protein pancakes. Which is why it was hard to come to terms with losing the oatmeal in my diet when I decided to go gluten free.

But don't fret! I've come up with an alternative and they taste amazing!! Check these out:

Kristen’s Almond Flax Pancakes:
- 20g Almond Flour
- 15g Milled Flax
- 160g Egg Whites
- 1 Package of Stevia
...- Spices or Pure Extract’s to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender – I use the magic bullet – and cook over a heated skillet (sprayed with cooking spray) just like ordinary pancakes. Makes 2.

Top with sugar free syrup or pure maple syrup and enjoy!

They turn out great, don’t take long and they are very versatile! You can add raisins, or goji berries to the batter as well to spruce it up. I love it with goji berries for added antioxidants.

Let me know what you think!

Good luck on this new diet. Most individuals going off gluten tend to gain weight until their body adjusts. Just an FYI so you don't panic :-)

This looks like a terriffic recipe, I haven't tried almond flour but will. I like that it incorporates flax to add fiber and does not introduce xanthan gum, a binding agent which is actually fermented bacteria from corn. This additive may trigger a negative response in people highly sensitive to gluten and at times produces symptoms of intestinal bloating and diarrhea.
