Keto Friendly Cream Cheese Pancakes

When I first started the Keto Diet the hardest thing for me was breakfast. There are only so many eggs you can make in the morning!! After my month long morning egg routine, I began to search out something new and different!!

Now, if you were a carb junkie; having pancakes, cereal, and toast in the morning was more or less a habit and you might be missing that on this diet. These pancakes will serve that purpose and crush those cravings! They are simple, easy to make and sooooo good!!!

The batter takes just a few minutes to make and can be saved in the fridge in a condiment container for up to 24 hours. These are an excellent option for those who are gluten free or looking for delicious low carb/no carb pancake options.

The list of ingredients in this cream cheese pancakes recipe is super short. Cream cheese, eggs, and cinnamon, and of course don’t forget the butter! I make a little cinnamon butter to top it by mixing Kerygold soft butter and Cinnamon with a pinch of Swerve sugar for a sweet taste. These pancakes are super creamy, satisfying and kid friendly as well!

A few tips:
Add the eggs first and blend them a bit so they are fluffy and then add the cream cheese- this will make the butter thicker.
Don't heat the pan too hot or the pancakes will burn easy as they are thin.
Experiment and find your favorite flavors- instead of cinnamon you might prefer vanilla or even lemon.

  1. I have made this a couple of times before, but when I do the cream cheese is never all the way mixed up. So do you think I could melt it in the microwave before mixing it in the blender or either hand mix it. They taste amazing but I just need to find out why the cream cheese never mixing all the way?

    1. Yes- you can warm up cream cheese before mixing- just don’t warm it in the plastic container :). You can also use the whipped cream cheese- it make the keto pancakes a little fluffier but mixes really well- a bit better than regular firm cream cheese. A hand mixer works well to blend- add the wet ingredients first and then slowly add in the dry to make sure its all mixed. Enjoy!!
