Almond Flour Pancakes

I love these pancakes. They are soft, fluffy, with a great nutty flavor without being overly sweet. Top them with some fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup…perfection.

I’ll be the first to admit that I could eat carbs all day every day and I don’t believe they are “bad” but I also know that I need to be mindful of my intake of them due to some health reasons. Ever since I can remember I would gladly choose savory over sweet, and these pancakes satisfy that completely, and I can drizzle on the maple syrup without having an overly sweet breakfast.
