Low Carb Pancakes

Pancake Day is coming. There is some good news for all of us. Low carb pancakes exist J I tried the recipe with soy flour and I’m very happy with the result. The proof is that I ate four in one go!
If you don’t want sweet pancakes add pinch of salt instead of fructose. 1 plain pancake without topping contains about 1.8g carbs. 


Ingredients (makes about 10 pancakes):
3 eggs
44g soy flour
150 g full fat greek yogurt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. olive oil
20g fructose  
Whipped cream
150 ml double cream
10g fructose
Blueberries to serve
 
Preparation:
Pancakes
1.    Mix all the ingredients well and allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.
2.    Heat small amount of olive oil (1 tsp. or using olive oil in spray is quite handy) on the medium heat. Pour about 2 tbsp. of batter on the hot pan and spread evenly. Pancakes should be about 10 cm in diameter.
3.    Fry about 30 second each side until golden brown.
 
Whipped cream
1.    Using electric hand mixer whisk cream with fructose until the cream gets thick.
2.    Serve the pancakes with about 1 big tsp. of whipped cream and 1 tbsp. blueberries.
 
Have a nice Pancake Day J
