A rare morning to myself and no food in the damn house. Except…I had eggs. And various kinds of flour. Oh, look! A can of berries that inexplicably moved with us when we left the UK! Well, they are Waitrose brand…seems a shame to waste what was probably a $4 can of berries at the time…


Makes four medium-sized pancakes

2 eggs

1 cup almond meal

1/4 cup milk (you can also use water, although I haven’t tried that)

1 tbsp Splenda or other sweetener

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp oil of your choice (I used and calculated the nutrition for this with coconut oil)

(optional) ~1 cup of mixed berries

1. Mix all ingredients. In a bowl. With a…spoon.

2. Plop batter down on hot, greased pan. Flip when the bottom get crispy/brown.

3. Serve immediately, topped with whatever you like. I used honey, and it was fantastic.
