Who says you have to give up goodies like pancakes on Atkins?

Not me. The right kind of pancakes fit right into your low-carb eating plan.

Pancakes on Atkins? Yes, you can!

These particular pancakes, Almond Protein Pancakes from an Atkins.com recipe, are quick to fix and taste great.

And filling? Two good-sized pancakes were almost too much for me to finish.

This was my second attempt at making this recipe, and they turned out even better this time around. Even though I followed the same recipe, the batter turned out more fluid — more like real pancake batter.

Top ’em with a little butter and some sugar-free syrup and you’ll hardly know they’re low in carbs.

I’m glad someone comes up with delicious, low-carb replacements for old favorites.

    • Hi Arlene: Those look and sound great. Unfortunately, we have someone at our house with nut allergy, so I don’t use any recipes calling for nut flours. But I make great pancakes from ground flax seed and protein powder. We love them. Necessity is indeed the mother of delicious invention.

    • Since it’s available to members of the Atkins community — and it’s free to join, I don’t see why I can’t put the recipe here.
      * 1 Tablespoon almond flour
      * 1/2 Ounce-weight sugar-free protein powder
      * 3/4 Tablespoon soy flour
      * 1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
      * 3/4 large egg
      * 4 Teaspoons cottage cheese
      * 1 1/2 Tablespoons slivered almonds
      * 6 Ounce-weights turkey sausage


      1. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl.
      2. Stir in the beaten eggs and cottage cheese until blended.
      3. Preheat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Using about 1/4 cup per pancake, drop batter onto the lightly greased skillet. When bubbles begin to form in the middle of the pancake, turn over and cook another 2 minutes or until pancake is firm.
      4. Sprinkle slivered almonds on top and serve with turkey sausage.
