These are a great grab and and go breakfast! They also make an extra tasty pancake with syrup or your favorite toppings. I personally love peanut butter on pancakes – and these were no exception!
They obviously have a nutty flavor, but I like how that balances with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and all-spice. Although there are times I would eat them straight out the fridge on my way out the door (cold and such), I liked them best when popped into my toaster oven for a few minutes. It would revive the crispy edges and tasted like they just came out of the pan!
1 cup almond meal
3/4 cups flax seed meal
6 eggs (I have done a similar batch with egg whites only – use 1 1/4 cup of egg whites)
1/2 tsp alcohol free NuNaturals liquid stevia
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (be sure it’s GF!)
1 tsp cinnamon
Pince of allspice and nutmug
I actually started with whole almonds, so I used the dry attachment on my Vitamix to get 1 cup of almond meal. The texture should be dictated by your preference, but I recommend as fine as you can grind without ending up with almond butter!
In a medium mixing bowl, crack open your eggs and whisk them together for about a minute (omit this step if using egg whites). Then add in your salt, stevia, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients before adding them to the egg mixture. Mix well.
Lightly spray a stove-top pan and bring it up to just below medium heat. On my stove I have settings set as 1-10, and for this I used setting 4. Spoon the mixture onto the pan until the edges reach approximately 3″ in diameter. You may choose to make your cakes a different size – I don’t think that matters too much! I cooked the cakes about 4 minutes on the first side, and 2 minutes on the second. I recommend having multiple pans going to speed up this process!
Makes approximately 16 3″ cakes, which will last well in your fridge just over a week in a sealed container.
