The optional lemon zest in these keto pancakes give them so much flavor without adding to the carb count! Enjoy these cream cheese pancakes with sugar free syrup and lots of butter.
Keto Pancakes that are this delicious bring back vivid childhood memories of waking up on Sunday morning to my dad making us homemade pancakes.
I love hot pancakes with butter and cold syrup. This keto pancakes recipe is made with cream cheese to keep them low carb friendly!
I am not one to make pancakes from scratch very often because I like to keep it easy and I hate standing at the stove for an hour flipping pancakes. These keto pancakes are so easy, I have made them 3 times this week!
My trick is to throw all of the ingredients into my single serve blender cup that came with my Ninja blender! I pulse it a few times, let the mixture sit for a minute while my skillet heats up, and then pour each pancake into the pan, straight from the blender cup. It doesn't get much easier than that!
KETO CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES
The ingredients in these keto pancakes recipe are not going to make a super fluffy pancake. Thats what makes these cream cheese pancakes easy because they lack ingredients that would be needed to make them fluffy. Less ingredients = less work. I'm okay with that, and I actually find really fluffy pancakes get heavy in my tummy. Blech.
The lemon zest in these keto pancakes packs a huge punch of flavor without adding to the carb count...score! I know what you're thinking...what am I going to do with this darn lemon now? Well, I would totally make my Roast Chicken with Lemon and Thyme or my Keto Chicken Salad! They are both amazing!
I have another low carb pancake recipe that uses protein powder for an extra protein punch. Check out my recipe for Protein Pancakes!
I eat these keto cream cheese pancakes slathered in butter and sugar free syrup. I'm on the hunt for a sucralose free, sugar free syrup...do you have a favorite?
