Cream Cheese Pancakes

cream-cheese-pancakes

This pancake is creamy in texture due to the cream cheese in it.   It is a fabulous pancake for low carbers and gluten free foodies! 

  There is a small amount of flax seed which is just so good for you, but you cannot really taste it.  A sneaky way to get a daily dose of flaxseed.  The pancakes can be delicate to make so don’t fill the frying pan full with the batter when cooking.  I love them smoothered with berries and cream..mmm!

INGREDIENTS

100g cream cheese, softened

2 large eggs, separated

1/2 tspn cinnamon

1/4 tspn salt

1 tblspn ground flax seed

1 tblspn erythritol (or sweetner of your choice)

2 tblspn butter

METHOD

  1. Beat egg whites until soft peaks.
  2. Put egg yolks in a separate bowl, add cinnamon, salt, flax and erythritol, and mix well.  Add the cream cheese and blend well.
  3. Fold the egg whites into the mixture.
  4. Heat a pan and melt a tablespoon of butter.  Pour small portions of the pancake mixture onto the pan and flatten them down into pancake sizes.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes and turn over to cook on other side.
  6. Remove from pan, smother with berries.
  7. Eat and enjoy!

    you fail to give the measurement of the pan. for Tacos I use the same pan as Carnival uses for eggs. It makes a nice 5 inch Taco or pancake.

      It doesn’t really matter on the pan size as I use a different range of them, depending upon which one I reach for in the morning. Any size will work.
