Nectarine Pancakes

Nectarine Pancakes

When I have a piece of overripe fruit I need to use quickly, I often chop it up in pancakes.  My inspiration for this batch of pancakes made with a very ripe nectarine, was a pancake recipe on Jennifer Eloff’s Splendid Low-Carbing site, called Donna’s Pancakes. Of course, my regular readers know I just couldn’t resist tweaking it a bit.  ;)  These were very fluffy and just delicious with just butter and maple syrup.  On special occasions like Christmas morning, I like to make fruity pancakes topped with sweetened whipped cream and more chopped fruit on top, for eye-smacking color and flavor!!   With the addition of the nectarine, these are a little carbier than many LC pancake recipes on my website, but they are indeed nice for a very special treat if you can fit the carbs in your day’s limits.  This are not suitable until the fruits rung of OWL.

  1. Ah, don’t be, I had 30 years in the Great White North – I still found beauty in my surroundings…even in the cloudy, stark winters. But I do prefer this, I cannot tell a lie. “Animals playing hopscotch in your front yard” – you have a way with words – haha too funny! Have a nice day, my friend. Your blog is amazing!!


    • You’re right about the bazillions of pancake recipes. As many of those as MIM recipes.

      On the up-side to not having access to nectarines, YOU have all those beautiful vistas, waterfalls, exotic flowers and animals playing hopscotch in your front yard. I know which one I’d prefer, and it ain’t edible! LOL I’m so envious.
