Over the years, I have discovered that I am best able to maintain my weight when I stick to a low carb diet. Many women are discovering the same thing applies to them and they’re having success with a ketogenic diet.
I have found that breakfast is a meal so many moms struggle with when trying to stick to a ketogenic diet. Fortunately you can have traditional breakfast foods like pancakes on the ketogenic diet – if you know how to make them.
If you’ve had banana pancakes, low carb pancakes use a similar sort of method. Eggs are used as the binder, but cream cheese is used instead of bananas (too many carbs in bananas!). I find that you do need to add a bit of liquid stevia to get a sweet taste.
Many people also add cinnamon and vanilla extract, but be aware that those ingredients will increase your carb count. So be sure to take that into consideration when adding extra ingredients.
This recipe will make enough pancakes for 3 people. You can also make them, then refrigerate them and heat them up in the morning for breakfast by quickly warming them on a pan. I haven’t tried freezing them yet.
The entire recipe has 16 carbs in it (not counting if you top your pancakes with anything), so if you’re dividing it up by 3 people, that’s 5.3 carbs per serving. If you want a larger serving, and to split the recipe between 2 people, that would be 8 carbs per serving.
