7 Diabetes-friendly Pancake Recipes (low-carb)

7 Diabetes-friendly Pancake Recipes (low-carb)

Someone left a comment on the blog yesterday asking, “Do you have any good recipes for diabetic pancakes?” Before I even had time to answer, another reader asked, “Can diabetics eat pancakes??” Obviously, my answers are “Yes” and “Hell yes!!” Not only can people with diabetes eat regular pancakes if we just take our insulin (or other diabetes medication), it’s also quite easy to make healthy low-carb pancakes that taste amazing and won’t spike your blood sugar. In fact, I have collected 7 Diabetes-Friendly Pancake Recipes right here. Before we get into the recipes, I have to admit that I am not quite sure what “diabetic pancakes” are (can pancakes even get diabetes?) so I will just assume that the question is about pancakes that are good for people with diabetes. To me, that means (relatively) low-carb pancakes with a good amount of protein. And they have to taste GREAT! The last thing we need to discuss before I let you have the pancake recipes is pancake syrup because I think we can all agree that this is an important part of the pancake experience, right? So, can you get “diabetic pancake syrup”? Yes, absolutely. I buy this sugar-free pancake syrup from Walden Farms and it’s good. Great even. It’s the sugar-free product I know off that taste the most like the real thing. Even my husband (who hates the taste of all other sugar substitutes) likes it. Now, let’s get to the fun part and look at my 7 favorite pancake recipes for people with diabetes! Easy Protein Pancakes These easy high-protein pancakes aren’t just simple to make and super healthy, they are also some of the best-looking pancakes if I may say so myself. They are really moist and fluffy, and the blended blueberries give them a great color. Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes My pum Continue reading >>

Easy Low Carb Pancake Recipe: Light And Fluffy

Easy Low Carb Pancake Recipe: Light And Fluffy

Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium high heat. Coat with non stick cooking spray if not using a non stick fry pan or griddle. Separate the egg placing the white in a medium (like 4 cup) size bowl and the egg yolk in a small (like 2 cup) bowl. Whip the egg white for 2 or 3 minutes until peaks form. Mix the Carb Counters Pancake Mix, together with the water into the egg yolk in the small bowl. Stir with spoon to blend well. Cooks Tip: Test your griddle or skillet to be sure it's hot enough by sprinkling a few drops water on to it. Water should sizzle a bit and bounce off the surface. Now it's ready for action. Gently fold the Carb Counters pancake/egg yolk mixture into the whipped egg white. A wooden spoon works well for this. Simply roll the spoon over the pancake mixture and bring it slowly around down deep into the bowl in a circular motion and back up again. Repeat the folding in lightly, rotating the bowl with each folding a few times to blend the heavier mixture gently into the light egg whites, but stop when mixture is just blended. Dont over do it. Using a large spoon, divide pancake batter into 4 portions and place one or two pancakes (or more if you have a large griddle or skillet) on the surface of the hot pan and lightly spread out the batter with the back of the spoon to 4 wide. Repeat with the remaining 3 pancakes and cook as you would a normal pancake but double the time (about 2 minutes total) - because the pancake is thicker, of course. Flip the pancake and cook for another couple minutes on the reverse side. Serve with this great low carb sugar alcohol free maple syrup recipe, or as desired. Delicious. Makes 4 5 fluffy pancakes at just 1 net carb per pancake. Pancakes may be frozen Continue reading >>

Flax Pancakes | Low Carb & Diabetic Friendly

Flax Pancakes | Low Carb & Diabetic Friendly

Light, fluffy and tender Low Carb Flax Pancakes that are ridiculously simple to make. Awesome breakfast for Carb Counters & Diabetics – but great for anyone who enjoys a healthy breakfast! Pancakes. People love them. Pancake options, combinations and toppings are endless. The humble pancake has been reinvented a million different ways and people still find joy in getting creative with them. With a diabetic in the family I had to rethink my pancake recipes. I worked on some whole wheat pancakes and coconut flour pancakes, both delicious and will be shared in the future. But I knew I could do better. The flavor and textures were great – but I knew I could get lower with the carbohydrate numbers. I knew the solution as well – the almighty ground flaxseed meal. I love ground flax. It’s an ingredient I use often – it tastes great, is filling, packs some serious nutrition and it’s cheap! I add it to yogurt, smoothies, to many of my baked goodies and I love making breakfast foods with it – I make a mean flax porridge and endless flax mug muffin combinations. I knew with a little coaxing it would take on pancake form perfectly. I found a few recipes online to try and start with – like always, it’s a lot of trial and error. When I finally found something that worked I just about fell in love. Simple, to the point, and tasted like a pancake you would want to eat any given morning. You’ll definitely know that it’s not your regular all-purpose flour pancake, but man-oh-man, it sure is surprisingly close. Light, fluffy and tender – with a drizzle of syrup some might not even notice the difference. My family was in disbelief. My daughter loves them and says they remind her of “French Toast Pancakes”. Seriously, people without any dietary restrictions can a Continue reading >>

The Ultimate Healthy Buttermilk Pancakes

The Ultimate Healthy Buttermilk Pancakes

An easy recipe for the BEST light & fluffy classic buttermilk pancakes youll ever eat! They dont taste lightened up or healthy at all! Throughout my childhood, many of our weekends began with Moms pancakes. With the recipe basically memorized, she mixed up the batter while my brother and I watched an episode of cartoons on TV and Dad quietly turned the pages of the local newspaper. Because our favorite brunch restaurant served Mickey Mouse pancakes, my brother and I always requested those shapes. Mom would cook in two pans so we were fed at the same time, and she set out the faux maple syrup for us to pour all over the pancakes. After adding blueberries to the bowl for her and Dad (no fruit in ours, thanks!), she poured out the rest of the batter into regular circles for the two of them and served theirs hot with a pat of butter and real maple syrup. We almost never ended up with leftovers! In her recipe, Mom always used regular milk since thats all we kept in the fridge. It wasnt until I reached high school that I realized buttermilk pancakes were the most iconic kind. And recently, with my guy and I going out for breakfast every so often, we started sampling the buttermilk pancakes offered by various restaurants in town. Upon feeling sluggish after one too many of those heavier recipes, I decided to create my own back at home. After lots of flipping and mixing and flipping some more, I finally came up with a recipe for The Ultimate Healthy Buttermilk Pancakes! Theyre light and fluffy and full of buttermilk flavor, and we both think that theyre better than any restaurants that weve eaten. Because I was an organic chemist before a baking blogger, I wanted to share a little bit of the food science behind what makes these the best lightened-up buttermilk pancakes youll e Continue reading >>

Perfect Pancakes | Diabetes Uk

Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day is the traditional day to eat pancakes in the UK, but theyre quick and easy to make anytime. If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, you might think pancakes are full of carbs and calories, which they can be but our message is that if you make simple switches in ingredients you don't have to miss out on treats on special occasions. Weve got a few swaps you can try, ideas for healthier toppings sweet and savoury plus tips if youre gluten- or dairy-free. Try our foolproof recipe and get flipping... Download your How to make healthier pancakes (PDF 578,KB) Four simple switches to make your pancakes healthier Use a spray oil or measure your oil (1 tsp of oil is enough to cook 8 pancakes if you use the same oil soaked in kitchen paper and wiped around your frying pan). Use low-sugar, low-saturated fat toppings. Here's how to change some of the ingredients to make your pancakes healthier or suit your diet. Pancakes can be made with most flours: white or wholemeal wheat, oat flour, rice flour or buckwheat. As well as gluten-free flour you can use nut or rice flour. Depending on the flour you choose, you can use this classic recipe as a guideline; but you may need a little more or less liquid as absorption rates vary. Different flours such as nut flours need a gentler heat to prevent burning. You can even make pancakes from potatoes. Most pancakes contain egg, but not all. You can use egg substitutes for a vegan alternative. The liquid is milk or water or a mixture of both, so use skimmed milk for a lower-fat version. Soy, rice milk or nut milks, such as almond, work well too. Sift your chosen flour into a bowl. (This is to add air, so when sifting wholemeal flour youll be left with the wheat bran in the sieve; just add this back into the sieved fl Continue reading >>
