Cheesecake Pancakes

An excellent low carb substitute for pancakes.



  1. In a small bowl, beat egg white with electric mixer until stiff peaks appear. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.
  3. Beat egg yolks, sweetener, cinnamon, salt and flaxseed meal into cream cheese.
  4. Fold in the egg whites.
  5. Heat large heavy fry pan over medium low heat. Grease lightly with butter.
  6. Form pancakes using about 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. Cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Don't rush - if the temperature is too high, the butter will burn.
  7. Note: can be served with butter, fruit, whipped cream, whatever you like. I made syrup by mixing sugar free honey substitute with artificial maple extract.

These are really good. I substituted Stevia for the splenda and they still came out excellently.

These pancakes were fabulous and easy to make. My hubby loved them and didn't know they were low carb. They're sweet enough not to need syrup, we used butter and a small amount of whipped topping. One tip, once the batter is on the griddle, spread it out a little so they're flat. They don't spread on their own and they can get a little raw in the middle if not spread out.

These are a favorite at my house. It helps to let the cream cheese come to room temp before mixing in. You can also stick it in the microwave for 30 seconds first. I don't put sweetener in the pancakes, but I use s/f syrup on top.
I left out the flax seed for the Induction Phase, but they were superb! I really don't like eggs, and these weren't all that eggy! I made a few batches ahead for the week and froze them!

A bit tangy because of the cream cheese. But overall a good alternative if you can't have pamcakes at all. :)
