Chocolate Low-Carb Pancakes ~ GF, DF

Brunching. Isn’t it fabulous?!  Usually on the weekends, when I have more time in the mornings, I like to make a bigger breakfast.  Since adapting to the keto lifestyle you would think that excludes things like french toast, waffles and pancakes.  Luckily, there are a world of low-carb flours out there which transform into fabulous, fluffy pancakes.  And of course there’s chocolate involved, because we all know everything is better with chocolate!

These pancakes are also gluten-free and dairy-free. Top them with your favourite toppings or add a big dollop of coconut whipped cream – heavenly!Chocolate Low-Carb Pancakes ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com ~ #lowcarb #keto #glutenfree #dairyfree

Ingredients
  1. 1/3 cup almond flour
  2. 1 egg
  3. 2 Tbsp of sparkling water* or plain water
  4. 1/8 tsp sea salt
  5. 10-12 drops of liquid stevia or sweetener of choice
  6. 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  7. 8g unsweetened bakers chocolate
Instructions
  1. In a microwaveable bowl, add 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil and chocolate. Microwave at 20 second intervals until fully melted.
  2. In another medium bowl, add almond flour, egg, water, salt, and stevia; mix well.
  3. Stir in melted chocolate.
  4. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Add 1/2 Tbsp of coconut oil. Once melted, spoon the batter into the frying pan. I got four 3.5" pancakes from the batter.
  6. Heat for a few minutes a side until cooked, flipping once.
  7. Remove from pan and top with your favourite nut butter, sugar-free maple syrup or coconut whipped cream.
Notes
  1. *Sparkling water will make the pancakes fluffier.
  2. To make coconut whipped cream, simply place a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. This allows the "cream" to separate from the milk. Remove the can and turn it upside down - do not shake it! Open the can and scoop out the heavy cream. Using a hand mixer, whip this with a bit of vanilla extract and stevia (or sweetener of choice). It is perfect as is, or refrigerate again and allow it to firm up a bit more.
