Y'all, I made some pretty questionable choices, nutritionally speaking, the last couple of months and my body and bran have been screaming at me to get back on track.

I know eggs are the easy go-to breakie of choice when you are going low carb, and there are a lot of great keto egg recipes out there to enjoy like this Instant Pot Caprese Frittata, Cheesy Cauliflower Hash Browns, Keto Breakfast Pizza, and Instant Pot Crustless Quiche Lorraine.

But a carb jonesing girl can only eat so many eggs before she wants to dive face-first into a blueberry muffin, or a plate of warm buttery pancakes, right?

Well, since I am still working on my blueberry muffin recipe, I decided to share my newest obsession ie. these amazing Low Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes.

I spent some time poking around the interwebs looking at low carb pancake recipes, and a lot of time testing out what low carbers and carb lovers would equally love. 

That is when I finally settled on this recipe, and it is a winner, my friends, I guarantee!

One of the things that I try to do when I come up with new recipes for you is to keep the ingredients as minimal as possible. I try to stick to things that most of us have in our low carb pantries, and then add a few other items that will aid in flavor boosting.

So this recipe has a few optional ingredients that you can choose to use or forgo.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR LOW CARB CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES


  • Almond flour
  • Cream cheese
  • Eggs
  • Erythritol (optional)
  • Baking powder (optional for fluffier pancakes)
  • Vanilla extract (optional)
  • Butter for cooking

I mix this batter with my Mom's old hand mixer (yes that is how old that thing is) but if you have a blender you can, of course, use that.

I just like going old school sometimes.

Full disclosure - my blender died a couple of years back and I have been trying to figure out what kind of blender I want to replace it. Any suggestions? Feel free to leave me a comment below!

I figured I would do a photo of what my pancakes looked like as I cooked them because we all know that every stove is different right?

I did test cooking them at medium and medium-low heat. Medium-low wins hands down! Medium heat resulted in a verrrrrry done outside if you wanted the inside cooked correctly.

If you like dark pancakes though by all means go for it.

Who am I to judge?

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE LOW CARB CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES


Keep them on the smaller side - These pancakes are a bit more fragile than your traditional pancake because there is no gluten so the bigger the pancake the more room for oopsies. I use a 1/4 measuring cup to scoop the batter so they are all the same size.

Invest in a good non-stick pan - I have two pans that I love to make pancakes in. This one is the cheaper one but works really well, and this one is the one I splurged on. I love them both so it is really just a matter of how much you want to spend.

All stoves are not the same - This just means that you need to test out a small amount of the batter to see what temp you should cook your pancakes on. I will say that, on my stove, medium-low heat is perfect. Since these are low carb pancakes they tend to burn easier than a traditional wheat flour pancake. But medium on your stove might work perfectly.

Can you freeze these pancakes? 

Yes, by all means! I am all for less work and since these pancakes freeze beautifully I usually make a double, or even triple batch on the weekend so I can enjoy them all through the week.

Make sure the pancakes are completely cooled, then separate them with waxed or parchment paper to keep them from sticking together. I use these reusable quart-sized zipper-top bags or these meal prep containers.

When you want to eat them you can either place them in the fridge the night before or just pop them straight from the freezer into the microwave. If heating from frozen use the frozen food setting. I wrap them in a paper towel as well.

I have seen some bloggers talk about using the toaster to reheat but I haven't tried that. If you do please make sure to leave me a comment below to let me know how it works!

    1. The nutritional info is per pancake. My hubby will scarf down 4 while I only eat 2 so I figured I would make it easy for everyone to figure up their own serving size :)

  3. So would it be about 8 carbs for the whole mix? 2 carbs per 1/4 cup of batter
