Low Carb Pecan Meal Pancakes Recipe

  • 1 cup pecan meal
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon iodized salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounce almond milk, unsweetened
  • 2 large eggs


Mix all dry ingredients together then whisk egg, vanilla, and almond milk together. If it looks a little dry add more almond milk until it's a nice pancake batter consistency. Portion out onto your hot griddle by the tablespoon full into 12 pancakes. Note that this does not "bubble" up around the edges as well as flour pancakes so monitor closely and turn as soon as they are firm and puffed. Pecan meal browns quickly so don't leave the stove. Serve hot with a little butter and sugar free syrup. This recipe makes 12 silver dollar pancakes, 2 net carbs per pancake.
