Almond Flour Pancakes

A high protein low carb pancake! This pancake needs a sweet topping for most kids to eat, but being so high in protein and low in sugar, you won't see a blood sugar spike.

Since my kids insist on chocolate or "syrup" ( we use raw honey) I love serving them these pancakes knowing that their overall sugar consumption won't be very high.
