Frequently Asked Questions?

All foods tend to affect everyone differently and therefore that is a tough question to ask.  However, these pancakes are made with ingredients that are not likely to increase blood sugars like almond flour, flavour extracts and unsweetened chocolates.  For individual results it is best to check your blood sugars after consuming a pancake to see how it affects you personally.

What makes the pancake fluffy?

When the almond flour is mixed with the baking powder it helps to create bubbles when heated which in turn allows the pancakes to rise and stay fluffy.

What does egg to do pancakes?

Eggs provide the additional structure to the pancakes and support the bubbles that allow the pancakes to rise.
