Low Carb Pancakes
I have been experimenting with different low carb pancake recipes I have found. They all consist of cream cheese and eggs. One had baking powder. I think all called for a sweetener, as well. They all tasted good, but I wasn't getting the right consistency. I ran out of stevia one day, so I substituted some strawberry flavored protein powder I had. The kind I use is sweetened with stevia and only has 1 carb per scoop. They turned out really good, but the consistency wasn't quite what I wanted. Today, I tweaked the recipe again, and I'm happy to announce, I finally found it!
1.5oz cream cheese (I had been using 2, but I like the 1.5 better)
1/2 scoop protein powder (today I used vanilla caramel swirl...awesome!)
Put in blender, blend until mixed. Let the mix sit for a couple minutes, while skillet heats. I find medium to medium high heat works best. I use 2T butter in mine. Slowly pour batter in small circles. I had to do 2 batches and made 7 little cakes. Just like regular pancakes, when they start bubbling, they are ready to turn. You could probably use sugar free syrup, if you'd like, but I top mine with cream, because they are already slightly sweet, due to the protein powder. Also, they're good and buttery from cooking them in butter. They are pretty quick to make and really take care of a pancake or a sweet craving! With the powder I use, mine come out to about 4-5 carbs for 7 little pancakes.
