  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. Truvia
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. butter

DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour flour, protein, baking powder, truvia, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together almond milk and fat free sour cream, then add egg whites. Stir in vanilla.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
