There are a plethora of keto pancake recipes floating around on the web, so I decided to mix up my own based on what worked and what didn’t work on previous recipes I tried and finally came up with one that works and tastes delicious!
The great thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t simply aid with weight-loss due to the low calorie and carbohydrate count, it also makes you less hungry because the eggs in it make you feel full for longer, as a result you’re most likely to eat less calories throughout the day(1, 2).
There is a research study that included 30 overweight women who were provided an egg breakfast instead of bagels. The women felt more pleased and full with the egg breakfast compared to a bagels breakfast, which then resulted in them consuming fewer calories for the next 36 hours (3). This small report isn’t precisely indisputable clinical evidence, but it’s definitely food for thought.
Luckily the idea that eggs are bad for your cholesterol can finally be considered a myth. Even the professionals on the committee that establish the United States dietary guidelines now state there was “no considerable relationship” between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol (4).
Now that you have a little information about why the recipe is good for the Ketogenic Diet and for weight loss in general, you may be wondering: what about the taste? Envision them as a cross between crepes, french toast and pancakes. The final Keto Cream Cheese Pancake recipe that I concocted is so good that even my picky kids love it!
Keto Cream Cheese Pancakes
Makes 1 serving
2 oz Cream Cheese (organic will be 1-2 carbs per serving at most)
½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/3 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
1 packet of Stevia in the Raw (or whatever Stevia you like)
Using a bullet blender or a regular blender, mix the ingredients until there are no lumps and the batter looks smooth.
On a hot pat add some coconut oil or butter while the pan is on medium to high heat. Proceed to cook the same way you make regular pancakes. Don’t flip it until it’s cooked most of the way on one side.
The final product…Ta-da!
