Well I’ve been on a mission to go hard core Keto lately and eating very low carb. These pancakes are cream cheese based and really delicious.
It makes 4 pancakes which you can eat all at once or split into two servings. They can also be poured really thinly to make crepes or put in the waffle maker to make fluffy waffles.
2 oz cream cheese
2 large eggs
1/2 scoop whey protein
1 tsp artificial sweetener
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix ingredients in a blender or with an immersion mizer. Blend until smooth, wait a few seconds to let the bubbles settle. Pour 1/4 of the batter into a pan, cook as you would traditional pancakes, cook about 1-2 minutes per side until golden.
Garnish with a few berries, whipped cream or sugar free syrup if you’re watching carbs.
While this particular recipe isn’t from The Keto Diet App I have made a lot from her book Quick Keto and her free online recipes.
A few years ago I lost a bunch of weight eating very little carbs. I’ve since found some of that weight and sort of kinda try to keep the low carb habits going. It’s a challenge I find being busy, on the go, with the kids and eating at work. Once place I really try to keep it up is with treats and sweets. I have a load of low carb (or adaptable) recipes on my Food Pinterest board.
These are a fav. I’ve adapted the recipe from Averie Cooks post here. She also links to her original recipe, which she improved upon by making them double chocolate.
I DO NOT make these in my blender. I tried that the first time and it was just waaaaay too difficult to clean that thing out afterwards! Her’s are dairy free but I tend to just use mini chocolate chips I have on hand at times. I also use whatever nut butter I happen to have. My cousin works at Nuts To You so I get to try a lot of different types.
Here’s my minty take on Averie’s recipe.
1 medium banana
1 large egg
1/2 cup nut butter
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat to 400
Blend all ingredients (reserve a small amount of chocolate chips)
Put in lined mini cups
Sprinkle with chocolate chips
Bake 8-12 mins
I love, love, love to add 1/2 tsp mint extract to mine
