Almond Flour Pancakes W/o Eggs.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm really hoping somebody can help me. I am intolerant to gluten, eggs, dairy, and cane sugar. I also have leaky gut and I'm trying to follow the Specific Carb diet. There is a recipe for almond flour pancakes in which you basically make them like regular pancakes, but with almond flour. This recipe calls for the use of eggs, but I can't eat eggs. Does anybody know of a way to make these pancakes without using eggs? I know potatoe flour can substitute eggs in cooking, but that isn't allowed in the Specific Carb diet. Are there any other options?

These pancakes look good because I have a hard time digesting things that aren't soft, plus I need to put on some weight. I'm about 25 pounds underweight. My experience with this diet so far is that all the animal protein I've been eating is causing me to have abdominal pains, so I thought I could maybe make these pancakes and spread some natural peanut butter on them. My thought is that this would be easy to digest and give me some good nutrition as well.

Thank you.

I don't have experience with the SCD but I did make a similar thing-muffins-because they were lowcarb and I was trying to gain weight too. They consisted of basically almond flour and eggs and a little baking powder or soda and some liquid. I have issues with eggs so I tried to cut back on them using flax meal as an egg replacer. I never did eliminate all the eggs but it was successful and I got it down to just one egg in a recipe that started with four. I ended up with other dietary issues and just didn't take the experiment any farther to see if it would work without any eggs. I just googled instructions for the flax meal egg replacer-adding hot water to it if I remember. Well anyway, that's my experince and I hope it's encouragement.

Can you tolerate things like coconut oil or avacados to add calories?

Thanks. I wasn't aware of flax meal. I'll try that.
