    I couldn't have pancakes today as it's my blood test this afternoon. :) but I intend to have one tomorrow - no sugar though! I like mine with butter on.

    You guys have read my mind. I have had my best blood sugar day since I was diagnosed in January. This morning 6.7. Before lunch 7.1 and 2 hours after 7.2. Am really pleased with these. Anyway, had been debating with myself about whether or not to have a pancake with butter. Decision now made and I'm gonna really enjoy it. Be interested in how that affects things.

    Mmmmmmm delicious. Thin, crisp and piping hot straight from the pan, plenty of butter with a sprinkle of orange juice.

    Stop it, you're making me hungry!

    Out of interest, how many of you have tried almond flour pancakes? I made some last year and they were so nice with a squeeze of lemon juice and a little honey. Mmmmm!

    I have just had one pancake and feel so ill:( My stomach is bloated and it hurts. I am going to use my last test strip and see how it has affected my bs (then I really must order some more strips as I haven't tested as much as I should recently).

    Almond flour ANYTHING is excellent.
    It's really good for making american style thick & fluffy pancakes.

    I'm a bit random though today - I made savoury almond flour pancakes, with chicken and avocado.

    I gave in, blood was only 5.5 before tea so I succumbed - sugar free chocolate sauce and cream .... it was good, but was it worth it?

    Read all the recipe ideas on here, bought the almond flour and then the demon kicked in "what harm can it do? It's only a little pancake .."

    11.2 before pancake (lowest reading this week) 21.1 two hours later. Pancakes with plain white flour are off the list!

    I used a little Stevia to sweeten - my first go with it. I suppose that could be to blame, but I doubt it!!

    I too was naughty today. I made loads for the masses and then ate one with sugar free jam and whipped cream- lush! Bs 1 hour after 6.6. :)

    I didn't see this thread! I Oates about pancakes on a new thread. Can't find it now ... I'm on my mobile.

    2 eggs
    50g fromage frais
    15g ground almonds

    And/or 15g milled flax seed/linseed

    I used linseed with pumpkin seeds but if you want a sweeter version the one with sesame, blueberry and raspberries is lovely.

    Accompany them with anything. Above makes about 6 scotch pancake sized. Total 6g carbs.

    I do savoury fillings from sweated down veggies and make pancakes with chickpea flour. It needs an extra egg. They get a nice frilly crispy edge to them.
