Crispy and Delicious Pancakes with Mascarpone and Pistachio cream

Usually I like to have a nice brunch on my weekends, a bit more elaborated, and with a dessert.

Pancakes (either savory or sweet) are one of my favorite Sunday brunch desserts.

This time I went for an Italian touch, with mascarpone and pistachios. They turned out quite good, the cream gives them a complexity and richness that takes these pancakes to a different yumminess road.

Nutrition per portion

  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp xylitol, erythritol or stevia
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg, small
  • 1/4 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1 tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp cream
  • 1 tbsp chopped pistachio
  • 1 tsp xylitol
  • 1/4 tsp pistachio extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp salted caramel (optional)
  • Beat the egg, almond flour, baking powder, xylitol and olive oil until you get a homogeneous mix
  • Oil a small frying pan (I use two, to flip the pancakes)
  • Drop half the mix and cook until golden and small bubbles appear on the surface
  • Flip the pancake and bake on the other side
  • Do the same with the remaining batter
  • Cool down the pancakes in a drying rack to retain crispness
  • While the pancakes are cooking, mix the mascarpone with the xylitol, cream, and pistachio extract (it will be a liquid cream, unless you beat it with a hand mixer)
  • Arrange the pancake in a small dish, add the cream, sprinkle with the chopped pistachios, and add the salted caramel
