RECIPE | Low Carb, Gluten Free Cream Cheese Pancakes

Being as it's January most people are still on the health kick train and some have inspired me to try eat less sugar and cut down the carbs, and so these Cream Cheese Pancakes were born.


These pancakes are perfect for breakfast or for anyone who's on a low-carb diet or just prefers a light breakfast.  However the fun doesn't stop there. These pancakes are so versatile and can be used for a lighter options for a lunch or dinner. We have used these in place of tortilla wraps or pittas, they are very elastic and can easily being rolled up without any breaking. One batch of these pancakes are just 2g of carbs, 13g of protein only 253 calories.

What you will need:

56g of cream cheese
2 medium eggs
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Place all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until smooth. Let the batter sit for a minute or two before adding to the pan so the bubbles can escape. If you don't your pancake will probably fall apart and we don't want that to happen.

Pour some of the batter into a hot pan greased with coconut oil, butter or fry light. Cook for two minutes until golden brown, flip and cook for one minute on the other side. Repeat for the rest of the batter.

Serve with honey, syrup, or fresh berries.
As you can see we love these pancakes, but don't forget to try our other pancake recipes. My daughter's favourite has to be our American Style Pancakes, or our two ingredient Banana Pancakes they are so easy to whip up.
