On the weekends when hubby is around in the mornings I love to wake up and make a big breakfast for us both to enjoy. Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods but hubby isn't a big fan because he says they have too many carbs. I found this recipe for low carb pancakes on Healthy and Homemade and knew that I could entice the hubs into eating them but first I had to find coconut flour. Thankfully my store carried it, so I was good to go!
I modified the recipe a little bit, using whole eggs and adding in pecans for a little protein and crunch. They were delicious! Hubby gave them two thumbs up! Next time I think I will serve fruit on top. These pancakes are a great, healthy way to start your day.
Low Carb Pancakes
From Healthy and Homemade
Makes 8 pancakes
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature (I used the 1/3 less fat version)
6 tablespoons Flax meal
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup pecans
In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients and whisk to combine. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Use a 1/4 measuring cup to drop your pancakes onto the skillet. Flip when golden brown on one side.
Serve with butter and syrup. These are also great when refrigerated or frozen! :)
