Low Carb Greek Yogurt Pancakes with Chia Seeds


I have tried lots of different recipes having gestational diabetes in an attempt to enioy food and not feel like I am missing out. These are by far my favourite.
I have adapted a recipe for pancakes using greek yogurt that I found at Everyday Belle – Living Life Beautifully.

Here is my adapted version to make them less carb and sugar and more fiber to keep you feeling fuller for longer.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes
(makes 4 pancakes – 2 serves)

2/3 cup greek yogurt
1 egg
2 tbsp dry chia seeds
1/4 cup low GI plain flour
1/8 cup almond meal
1/8 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda

Mix greek yogurt, egg and chia seeds. Let sit a few minutes. Add dry ingredients. Let sit a few more minutes.
Divide into 4 pancakes. Cook.

Serve 2 pancakes with 2 strawberries and 1/2 small apple. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with Queen maple syrup (artificially sweetened).

And never elevated my BGLs. Bonus.
