During the week, I usually don’t have a lot of time in the mornings. Breakfasts that I can prep ahead of time and eat on the go are my staples.

How to make diabetes-friendly pancakes with almond flour
You’re only eight ingredients and six simple steps away from a delicious, low-carb breakfast! Ready to see how it’s done?
Step 1: In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt.
Step 2: Add the eggs, Greek yogurt, milk, and vanilla extract, then whisk well. Set the batter aside to rest.
Step 3: Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat.
Step 4: Spoon ¼ cup of batter per pancake onto the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the entire surface looks less shiny and you can see small bubbles.
Step 5: Carefully flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Step 6: Repeat until you’ve used all the batter. You should have 8 pancakes total.
That’s it! I recommend serving immediately while they’re hot.
Topping ideas for your pancakes
Let’s be honest with ourselves. Sure, pancakes are great… but what would they be without the classic toppings?
I like to top mine with sugar-free syrup for a tried-and-true combination. I might even add a little pad of butter on top for that pancake-house feeling.
Berries are another favorite of mine. Sliced strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries are my go-to options! You could even do a mix if you have more than one variety on hand.
Want to really feel like you are indulging? Throw on some sugar-free chocolate chips and a little whipped cream! A dollop of peanut butter is a nice touch as well.
Whatever toppings you choose, you just want to make sure they’re low in sugar and carbs. That way, you can keep this entire meal diabetes friendly.
Pancakes are best served hot off the griddle. However, if you have extras, you can store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to three days.
You can reheat them gently in the microwave, being careful not to overheat them so they don’t dry out. Alternatively, bake them in the oven at 350°F until warmed through.
