A few years ago, my doctor recommended that I quit eating sugar and flour. I didn't think it would be too difficult, as I don't have much
of a sweet tooth to begin with, but after a few weeks reading all the labels on all the foods in the store, I realized this change was going to be a challenge. Fortunately, I like cooking from scratch, and I like saving money. I no longer buy any foods from
any aisle in my grocery store and now shop only from the fresh produce, dairy, and meat counters.
I originally developed these pancakes to accommodate my gluten-free, sugar-free diet. They are as versatile as traditional pancakes and can
be dressed up or down as the meal requires. My favorite is to serve them with a pineapple, coconut, macadamia nut relish, but they're just as good served traditionally with butter and syrup (agave nectar is a great syrup).
This meal isn't a "diet" meal, but it shouldn't upset your blood sugar.
