Adriana's Low Carb Pancakes

For my first post I thought i'd post this pancake recipe I came up with a few days ago. It was purely an experiment but what resulted was the yummiest, fluffiest, most delicious low carb pancakes i've ever eaten! A friend who doesn't low carb tried one and ended up eating three! She loved them!

2 eggs
4 oz cream cheese softened, I used Philadelphia brand
1 scoop of Jay Robb vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 cup golden flax meal
3 drops liquid Splenda for zero carbs or any other low carb sweetener equivalent to 2 tbsp
1/4 cup half and half

1. Beat the softened cream cheese and the two eggs until well combined
2. Add the half and half, protein powder, flax meal, and liquid Splenda. Mix thouroughly, you will have a nice thick batter
3. Melt some butter in a skillet (or you could also use oil instead) and drop batter into pan. I used three tablespoons of batter per pancake.
4. Cook for a few minutes on medium heat. They are very easy to flip they hold together very well.
5.You might need to add more butter as you cook more pancakes.

Recipe yields 8 medium sized pancakes

I used Jay Robb whey protein powder because that's what I have on hand. I have not yet tried making these pancakes with other protein powders, but ill be trying some different ones soon. Jay Robb has only 1 carb per scoop and is sweetened with Stevia.

The golden flax meal is all fiber so it does not affect the net carb count at all.

These are the counts I got from fatsecret.com:

For the entire batch:
Net carbs 8.35

Per each pancake:
Net carbs 1.04

I am gonna be working on some variations of this recipe soon. I'm gonna be trying banana nut pancakes, pumpkin pancakes, strawberry cheesecake pancakes, blueberry pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, and eggnog pancakes! So Stay tuned for updates!


  1. Hey Agua! These pancakes look delish! I don't have protein powder though so I can't make them. But they look like the real thing! :) So happy you have a blog now! BTW this is dollkey from LCF

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words dollkey! I'm so happy you stopped by! I wish you could make these pancakes they're very good!
    I also visited your blog but could'nt figure out how to subscribe. I'm still kind of new to blogging *blush* I'll keep trying though. Take care friend! :)

  3. Did you use low carb syrup with them? Also do you think I could use heavy cream in place of the 1/2 and 1/2 ?

  4. Hi Kira! Thanks for stopping by!

    I did serve my pancakes with a drizzle of sugar free syrup. The brand I used is maple grove farms. It's the only sugar free maple syrup i've tried and it was pretty good. I think you can definitely sub out the half and half for heavy cream. Give it a try and let me know you like them! :)

  5. I finally got around to buying some protein powder last week just to try these, all the other lc pancakes I've tried were total fail. DH begged me for french toast this morning so I whipped a batch of these up as well - FINALLY, we have a WINNER! No overwhelming flax taste! Great texture! Mine were a little thinner, because I added some Davinci too it, but that's ok. I need to order the ez sweetz drops soon.

  6. Taste's like crap, doesn't rise and they do try to fall apart.

  7. LOVE this recipe... I haven't had pancakes in years of living the Atkins life-style...thanks so much!

  8. Astonished! I was hesitant on how these would come out. The First one was a mess but I realized they have to be cooked on lower heat for a little longer. I added and extra 1/4 cup of half & half for thinner cakes. Adding whipped cream is a must, it added a salty, buttery savory-ness that took them to the next level. My wife, who is gluten free, loved them too. Thanks Adriana, for bringing amazing back to breakfast!

  9. Mmmm...yummy! I tried a similar version of these last Fall and my family loved them. Your recipe sounds just as delicious.
