How to make Lo-Dough gluten free pancakes
Can you eat pancakes if you’re GF? Absolutely! There are several options available to you, using all manner of different types of Gluten-free flour. Alas, very few of these options (almond flour, buckwheat, oat flour, etc) are low in carbs and calories and in some cases prove to be more calorific than regular flour. That's where Lo-Dough comes in. Use a blitzed up LD base as a flour replacement to make GF pancakes, waffles, fritters and more, without the calories and carbs. Simple ingredients, low calorie, gluten free food. What more could you want?
Gluten free American pancakes
The key to low calorie, gluten free Scotch pancakes (or American-style pancakes - they are basically the same thing) is to use your Lo-Dough crumb whipped up with eggs, milk, sweetener and a touch of baking powder. You are trying to create a thicker mixture that will rise more in the pan, giving you that classic looking pancake the can be stacked up with tasty goodies.
Gluten free flour replacement
To create your gluten free flour replacement, simply tear your Lo-Dough base up into roughly inch sized pieces and throw in your food processor. A quick whizz should turn your base into a fine flour-like breadcrumb.
Can I make keto pancakes? Slimming friendly pancakes?
Of course you can. For slimming pancakes and keto pancakes, the recipes basically remains the same - the difference will be the cooking medium. Slimmers need to use their trusty 1 cal spray oil, while those following a keto diet/lifestyle should cook their pancakes in gently foaming butter or any other fat of their choice. In both cases we recommend using a non-stick pan, but particular if going with 1-cal oil. Similarly, keep the pancakes around the size of your fish slice/spatula - it will be much easier to flip them!
