Almond Pancakes - Better than the "Real" thing!

The biggest  trouble you'll have with these pancakes is resisting the temptation to drown them in maple syrup.  I like to dust them with powdered stevia, a kind of faux powdered sugar.  But then, I've been off sugar so long that 90% cocoa actually tastes sweet to me.  Only 1 gram of carbs per pancake, not including whatever fruit you choose to add (and assuming you avoid the syrup.)

1 cup almond meal
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbpsp stevia
dash cinnamon

Combine all ingredients, let sit a few minutes to thicken.  Fry on frying pan with butter like regular pancakes.  They won't "bubble" like regular pancakes, so watch them closely.  You can add blueberries or strawberries if desired.

Serve with scrambled eggs and bacon for a nicely balanced keto meal.

Note: I experimented a bit the other day and added a tablespoon of cocoa powder - YUMMY.  These are excellent reheated, so make enough for leftovers to take to work with you.  They are also very filling, so a little bit goes a long way.
