I'm still on the fence about the truth behind "healthier" baked goods. But at the same time, I'm giving these alternative recipes a shot, just to see. This past weekend I tried this recipe for almond meal pancakes that I've heard such great things about. I had purchased a bag of almond meal based on Tina's experiments that she deemed great successes. I don't know what I was thinking, but for some reason I had it in my head that almond meal was going to taste like flour. I whipped up the recipe and set to work on my first two pancakes, and when they were done, I dove in.
Surprise! These taste like ALMONDS! How strange... The thing is, I the only way I like almonds is if they are coated in dark chocolate or ground into almond butter. These pancakes were dry and crumbly and nutty. NOT what I was looking for. At least I gave them a shot. Now what am I going to do with the rest of my almond meal??
