After months of overindulging, January typically arrives with a slew of guilt and a waistband that is screaming for mercy. Since many people turn to a low carb lifestyle to get their sugar cravings under control, and lose the extra pounds, I thought I’d devote this week to some of my favorite low carb recipes.
Whenever I resort to low carb diets to lose weight, the toughest meal for me is always breakfast. There are only so many eggs you can eat before you are looking for something different. These cream cheese pancakes are a welcome treat in that case.
Even if you aren’t watching carbs, these are also an excellent option for those who are gluten free as they contain no grains or flour of any kind. In fact the list of ingredients in this recipe is incredibly short. Cream cheese, eggs, stevia powder – maybe a pinch of cinnamon. That’s it. And they are super easy to make.
I usually whip up a batch of these pancakes in my magic bullet, and it takes less than a minute to make the batter. I made this batch with low fat cream cheese to keep the calories down but if you are on a strict low carb diet (like Atkins) you can go with the full fat cream cheese.
A surprisingly satisfying low carb substitute for the real thing. Tastes like skinny fried cheesecakes! Even if you aren’t watching your carbs these are a delicious departure from the traditional doughy stack of pancakes. And you won’t have the sleepy feeling that usually comes afterwards!
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1 packet stevia (or any) sweetener
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Put all ingredients in a blender or magic bullet. Blend until smooth. Let rest for 2 minutes so the bubbles can settle.
- Pour ¼ of the batter into a hot pan greased with butter or pam spray. Cook for 2 minutes until golden, flip and cook 1 minute on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
- Serve with sugar free syrup (or any syrup of your choice) and fresh berries.
