Almond meal is ground almonds, I use it as a substitute for flour, great taste, adds calcium to your diet. The fat is all good fat, Omega 3's! The carbs are 15.7 and this breakfast holds me for a long time, doesn't add to weight in fact, I have a hard time keeping weight on! Bob's Red Mill has an excellent selection of whole grains including almond meal and golden flax meal. You could also add only one tablespoon of peanut/almond butter or not at all. I use this recipe, minus the peanut butter and add an egg and make it in to a pancake. I love pancakes but couldn't eat them till I developed this recipe. Just add a few blueberries. I am hard pressed to find decent breakfasts, I gave up cereal years ago and eat eggs only occasionally.

Please tell me why 400 calories in one carb serving and 33.8 g. of fat would be a good thing? Maybe if you're competing in Iditarod.
