Low-Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes

This morning I was able to enjoy one of my very favorite breakfast items – pancakes!  AND, they’re low carb, no flour!!  Perfect for the gluten-free diet too!  I came across this recipe online & just KNEW I need to try making some.

These pancakes are very thin (not the fluffy type), but they’re low-carb, tasty, & help satisfy a pancake craving.  Plus, they’re really easy to make & have minimal ingredients.

Low-Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes

Serves: 1, Yields: about four 6″, thin pancakes/crepes

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. cream cheese (I used the 1/3 less fat – would recommend this or full fat
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 packet stevia or other sweetener

Only 4 ingredients for the batter… eggs, sweetener, cinnamon, & cream cheese.

Directions:

Combine all ingredients (except butter) in a medium bowl & blend using an immersion blender.  If you don’t own an immersion blender you can use a blender or food processor too.

The batter after using the immersion blender…. it’ll be bubbly, so just let it settle a little.

The batter will be really bubbly when you’re first blending it, so just let it sit for a minute or two so some of the bubbles settle (some small ones will still remain).

Place about a half tbsp of butter onto a hot griddle (or use non-stick spray) & pour about 1/4 of the batter onto the griddle, letting it cook for about a minute or so.  Peek under & if it’s browning, flip it over & do the same on the other side, which will probably take a bit less time to cook.  Just keep repeating the process until all the pancakes are cooked.  Stack & then top with the remaining butter.  Dig in & enjoy!!

  1. I tried making this and it was so thin, I couldn’t flip without breaking it. We are doing LCHF diet. So is there anything we can add to the batter to thicken it? Like almond flour or coconut flour?

  2. Hey, I just ate these. I’ve been on a LCHF diet since January, and in these 4 months I’ve lost 26 pounds. I have to say, this is one of the tastier meals I’ve prepared (being the kitchen newbie that I am) and am really glad to have found it. Thanks a lot!

  3. I have to try these. My mom has a recipe she made called cottage cheese pancakes. I am almost positive she blended the cottage cheese smooth. They were crepe like. Very high in protein. They too are difficult to flip. Thanks for this recipe.

    • I used stevia because it is one of the more natural, plant-derived ones, but you could try using honey or maple syrup instead. You’ll probably want to sweeten it a bit w/something, unless you put something sweet on top, or like them savory.
