Good morning guys! I say Thursdays call for yummy pancakes, so I totally had to make these bad girls. Do you know the best part about these pancakes? They are sugar free! Yup ๐Ÿ˜‰ And the sourness of the cranberries do not compromise the sweetness, it actually compliments it! I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

These were so yummy and fluffy, and definitely a great start to my busy morning. I also added a dash of nutmeg to give it a little holiday flavour and it worked amazingly well. If you’re a diabetic and you’re looking for a yummy and healthy pancake recipe with high protein, low carb, and no added sugars, then these pancakes are right up your alley! It gets its natural sweetness from banana and stevia, so you can definitely get your sugar high and still stay sober ๐Ÿ™‚

Recipe: makes 4 mini pancakes

1/3 cup almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
Half a scoop vanilla Sun Warrior raw protein powder (or egg white protein powder)
1/2 tsp gluten/aluminum free baking powder
1/4 tsp organic sea salt
1 organic banana (mashed)
1/2 tsp organic baking stevia
1/2 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup raw frozen cranberries
2 tbsp orange juice (squeezed from orange)
1 tsp orange zest
A dash of nutmeg
2 tbsp organic unsweetened almond milk
Organic coconut oil (for frying)

Slice cranberries in half, as well as your orange and set aside.

Add remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend until a smooth batter forms, then add orange juice, zest, and cranberries to the batter and mix again.

Place skillet over medium heat with 1 tbsp of coconut oil (should be enough for all 4 pancakes), and pour palm size dollops into the pan.

Flip delicately when edges are brown, but be careful when flipping because these are fragile. They will break if you flip them too quickly. Repeat process for remaining pancakes.

When ready, top with toppings of choice and enjoy!
