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.

Oh my gosh! I think these are the best "pancakes" I've ever had! Kudos!

These pancakes were not my favorite...They were too eggy for me, though they were better with ricotta creme on top. Maybe I'll wait for phase 2 or 3 to do whole wheat pancakes.

I'm not a huge fan. I had to spread them thin to get them to cook all the way, and they turned out like little crepes, not pancakes. But they were pretty good rolled up and stuffed with ricotta creme.

nuts and sweets aren't goo in the induction stages so you would have to substitute those, but I am so wanting to try these for the second stage!

Flax seed is OK for induction phase! Check the Atkins site for more information!

Great way to avoid bread but still get the sweetness of french toast.
