Dr. Berg shows you how to make amazing pancakes using no sugar or wheat flour – taken out of his book, Healthy Fat Burning Recipes at:

1 Cup / 4 oz / 113 g – almond flour
1 TBS / 12 g – xylitol sweetener
1/2 TSP – baking powder
1/4 TSP – baking soda
1/8 TSP – sea salt, finely ground
1/2 Cup / 4 oz / 113 g – buttermilk
1 – egg, well beaten
1 TBS / 14 g – light olive oil
Softened butter & Yacon syrup and/or fresh fruit, for serving

Preheat a griddle to 350°F. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk egg, then add olive oil, and beat well. Add buttermilk to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Allow batter to sit for at least two minutes to rise. Pour four medium or eight small pancakes onto the griddle (silver dollar-size are MUCH easier to flip, especially if you are a novice). Cook until edges are done and bottoms are golden. Turn pancakes and cook about one minute longer or until done. Serve hot, topped with butter and yacon syrup and/or fruit and enjoy!

Makes 4 regular or 8 silver dollar pancakes.

Good Luck!

  1. Hi doctor, what's the brand of the almond flour are you using? I checked some almond flour and it turns out they have different calories and carbs? Could you indicate how many carbs per 100g usually have in almond flour? Thank you

  2. Ok. I changed this up just a bit.. added a couple tablespoons of Stevia and pumpkin spice. So easy and delicious!!!! They still don't hold together but I can deal .

  3. As a vegan, after all my research I think a plant based diet is healthiest, i would use coconut milk instead of the buttermilk. There are a wealth of studies ie. the Harvard Nurses Study which concluded dairy is not healthy for people ie. in the Harvard Nurses study the nurses whom consumed dairy had higher rates of bone fractures then those whom did not.

  4. im curious i keep seeing people use xylitol on the keto diet, but when i look at nutrition facts its 4 carbs per tsp. that seems like a lot of carbs, so how is it keto friendly? i have been debating on getting/trying it. thanks :)

  5. I'm surprised you used olive oil instead of melted coconut oil or butter…. What other sweeteners can you substitute the xylitol in the batter for? Not a fan of stevia or xylitol. Looks yummy!

  6. Dr. Berg, I like your all of your videos, but I am wondering about your recommendation of using Xylitol as a sugar substitute. Web MD says that usage of extreme amounts has raised some concerns in being linked to tumors. I am guessing that you do not advise overusage of Xylitol either, however does this issue not concern you? Here is where I read this. Please provide your thoughts on this matter as I am considering whether or not to start using this. Thank you!
