Hazelnut Pancakes

I was testing out oat fiber in a pancake this morning.  Was originally going to use almond flour as the main ingredient, but decided to introduce hazelnut flour instead.  The resulting pancakes were quite nice!  I think I will even increase the hazelnut flour next go round and have reflected the higher amount in my recipe below.

In my sleepiness, I quite honestly didn’t think to also make a hazelnut syrup to go on top by thickening my DaVinci Hazelnut sugar-free syrup.  I think that would have been VERY good on these.  I will definitely try that next time and will add that syrup recipe here if that turns out to be good and not overkill on the hazelnut flavor.  Today, I just used my trusty Cary’s sugar-free maple syrup.  This recipe is not suitable until the OWL phase of Atkins.

INGREDIENTS:

½ c. hazelnut flour

2 T. oat fiber (don’t use oat bran, which is much higher carbs)

2 T. flax meal (I used golden)

pinch salt (omit if you use salted butter)

pinch nutmeg

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1 pkt. stevia + 2 drops liquid Splenda

2 T. melted butter

¼ cream + ¼ c. water

2 T. sugar-free hazelnut syrup

1/8 tsp. vanilla

2 beaten eggs

½ T. coconut oil to grease griddle/pan

DIRECTIONS:    Melt butter in a bowl in your microwave.   Add cream and beaten eggs.  Beat to blend well.  Add dry ingredients, stirring after each addition.  If final batter is too thin, add a pinch more flax; if  gets too thick, add 1T. more water. I used a 2T. measuring cup to dip out batter onto my preheated griddle.  Dip out heaping 2-T. amounts onto griddle, forming 6 pancakes, evenly distributing any remaining batter.  Spread batter a bit with your spatula if necessary to form nice 4-4½” pancakes.  Brown nicely on both sides to your preference.  Serve warm with butter and your favorite sugar-free maple syrup.   ENJOY!
