BLUEBERRY VANILLA BEAN ALMOND PANCAKES (PALEO, LOW CARB)-Best Weight Loss Program

These fluffy almond flour pancakes are studded with vanilla bean specks and fresh blueberries. Paleo, low carb, and gluten-free.

I’m all for eating naturally healthy foods, but I also love transforming traditionally refined treats into healthier versions. Sometimes I still can’t believe that pancakes can be a healthy, paleo-friendly food. It just seems natural that they conjure up an image of refined flour and sugar.

I don’t remember when I first discovered almond flour pancakes. It has been so long, it seems like I have been making them forever! What I do know is that they changed my world. Sounds a little melodramatic, but it’s true. No gluten, no refined ingredients, and low carbs… all while maintaining a lovely classic pancake texture? Yes, please!

Now might not be exactly the season for fresh blueberries, but you can still find them in stores. Even in the middle of winter, sometimes we just need a splash of natural sweetness, right? (If you do insist on waiting until they are in season, this recipe is a must to save for later.)

Throwing blueberries into pancakes is one of my favorite ways to use them, and they are even better when paired with vanilla. In particular, vanilla beans have a way of  taking that amazing vanilla flavor and totally knocking it out of the park. Vanilla extract is wonderful, but vanilla beans take it to the next level. Think about how much more flavor vanilla bean ice cream has, compared to plain vanilla. That’s the difference between regular pancakes and vanilla bean pancakes.

If you’ve never tried adding vanilla bean paste to pancakes, you absolutely have to!

This recipe is an extremely easy way to do it, and totally foolproof, I must add. If you can whisk together a bunch of ingredients, pour them onto a pan, and flip – well, that’s all it takes to make these. As always, the ingredients are simple and you probably have many of them on hand.

Did I mention that these pancakes are actually healthy? Yep. They are packed with protein from the eggs, healthy fats from the almond flour and almond milk, and antioxidants from the berries. They are very low in carbs and paleo, too.

I like to prepare these pancakes on Sundays and bring them to work to have with my coffee in the morning. Who says pancakes have to be a weekend indulgence? Make them in advance, store them in the fridge, and you’re set for the week.
