Low Carb Pancakes

Recipe’s, they are so awesome.  Everyone has their own tastes and make changes to suit their own liking.  Here’s one of my favorites!

Low Carb Pancakes

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 oz cream cheese (full fat)
  • 2 oz heavy cream
  • *2 Tbsp coconut flour 
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  • splash of pure vanilla

Blend it all together, let it rest for a minute or two, grease the skillet, the first time… and go… no need to add butter between each batch, unless it sticks.  This recipe made about 14 little pancakes, perfect for two.

  • You could use fine almond flour as well, but if you do, use only 1 oz of heavy cream.  Add more cream to thin the batter/pancake.

Rasberry Topping

  • 6-8 oz Rasberries
  • 8 grams Swerve

Rasberry Parfaits – Low Carb

Who doesn’t love a good dessert?  I have been on a low carb/keto friendly diet since July of 2017.  I love a sweet treat at the end of the day.  Honestly, I have so many less cravings, but when I do, this is usually my go to:

Rasberry Parfaits

Serves two
  • 1 8 oz container of Mascarpone Cheese (room temperature) (cream cheese can be used
  • in it’s place)
  • 2 cups fresh rasberries
  • 1/3 cup Swerve (a natural sweetener that does not spike your insulin level and no bitter aftertaste)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • dash of salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Blend all of this together with a mixer until the heavy cream sets and then gently layer cheese mixture, rasberries, cheese mixture, rasberries.  The nice thing about this recipe, is that it is so versatile.  Here are a few flavor ideas, if you should get bored with this recipe.

You only need about a tablespoon to satisfy you (think fat bomb).

Flavor ideas

  • Chocolate:  Melt a square or two of unsweet chocolate and add it to the mix.
  • Mocha:  Add a shot of espresso or cold brew coffee shots and a square of melted unsweet chocolate
  • Almond:  Use almond extract instead of vanilla or add it in addition too.
  • Almond Joy:  Use almond extract, add a 1/4 cup toasted unsweet coconut
  • Cheesecake:  Use cream cheese instead of mascarpone
  • Pecan crumble topping – saute some pecans in butter and swerve, dash of cinnamon
  • Fancy – mix rasberries with some balsamic vinegar and a touch of swerve (to taste)
  • Reeses:  Add 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter and some melted unsweet chocoloate

Be creative and explore your cravings, please feel free to add any flavor profiles that you try and love.

Toasted toppings.

  • 1/4 cup coconut or pecans (or both)
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • 1 Tbsp Swerve

Toss these together over heat until they begin to toast, let cool and sprinkle on top of your dessert.  Enjoy! #fatbomb, #lowcarb, #dessert, #swerve, #sweettooth, #rasberryparfait
