Almond Flour German Pancake- Microwave Edition

Spread the love


I’ve always loved German pancakes! My grandmother made them for my cousins and me when we visited and it’s stuck as a happy food. The only downside is how long it takes to bake in the oven. I have found a successful way around that though, with the microwave! The process is identical to my original German Pancake in the Microwave, but these Almond Flour German Pancakes are amazing! They make for a quick and protein-rich start to the day! They also go great with hot coffee.. a must in the morning!

Took make this recipe Keto-friendly, I used Almond Flour instead of All-purpose Flour in my recipe. The Almond flour substituted perfectly in 1:1 ratio in this recipe and the German Pancake turned out amazing!
