Almond Meal pancakes with Blueberries, Lime and Double Cream

The key to low carb / low sugar diets to treat each meal as a special occasion, a celebration.

Prepare each meal with love, think about the ingredients you will use in advance, planning is key….where will you source the fresh produce, a local market, health food store or supermarket?

Experiment…not everything will be success…but your failures in the kitchen will teach you as much as your successes do!

Enjoy the cooking process, the learning curve that you are on as gradually eliminate carbs and sugar food products from your diet.

Having just returned from holidays…I well and truly fell of the low carb/ low sugar bandwagon…But I am getting back on the horse…I REALLY noticed the effect of sugar on my body whilst away….The busy mind, difficulty with sleep and depleted energy sources ( it was as if I had a SUGAR hangover…it hurt!!)

But awareness of how my body reacts to sugar, more so than carbs, makes me more determined than ever pick up where I left off…So the low carb/ low sugar approach to life is once more in full swing.

And so I present Almond Meal Pancakes– with blueberries, lime and double cream

The perfect way to start ANY day

Makes 6 pancakes  / Serves 2-3 people

1 cup almond meal

2 Eggs

¼ water ( for puffier pancakes you could use sparkling water)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon of Natvia/ Stivia ( optional…you may not want to add sweetener)

Punnet of Blueberries

Some heavenly double cream

Place butter in pan, melt and spread around the pan.

Spoon pancake patter into pan ( you may need to use the back of a spoon to spread  pancake batter around the pan)

After pancake batter has been in pan for 2 mins cooking, press desired amount of blueberries into batter. Flip pancake over to cook other side.

Repeat till pancake mixture is no more!

** You may prefer to cook the pancakes without inserting blueberries into the batter. Make your pancakes, and when finished, place desired on amount of blueberries into pan, heat through….and then place liberally on your yummy almond meal pancakes.

Serve with double cream

Impossibly good
