Over the last several weeks I have been doing a lot of low carbing. I find that, personally, my body is just happier with less carbs (especially grains). Gluten hasn’t been on my radar for over a month either and I barely miss it. Of course, when I have the ferocious craving for toast, this amazing bread recipe comes to the rescue. Overall though, I’ve been sticking to low carb meals.
One of the recipes I’ve made what feels like dozens of times is the Low Carb Cream Cheese “Pancake”. I’ve seen a few recipes out there for it, but I wanted to share my version. It tastes like decadent cream cheesy French toast…without the toast. It’s one of my favourite breakfast recipes. Like ever. Serves 1.
Low Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes
- 2 organic eggs, beaten
- 3 ounces Kraft cream cheese, softened*
- 1-2 tbsp. heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Couple pinches of nutmeg
- 1-2 packets of Truvia
- Pinch of salt
*You can just heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds so it stirs easily into the eggs.
Stir all the ingredients together in a bowl. Pour half the batter into a pre-heated non-stick pan (with a little butter or coconut oil added to the pan). Cook until each side is done. Cook the other half of the batter. Makes 2 pancakes.
I like to top my “pancakes” with Truvia or even a little whipped cream. I love this pancake because there are little pockets of cream cheese inside the pancake – it just tastes so decadent, yet the whole recipe is about 3 carbs! Happy joy joy.
I’m so obsessed about cream cheese. I can’t help it. Just look at it! Mmmm…
