If you’re on a keto diet, you’ll love this low carb cream cheese pancakes recipe. It can help you get through induction or weight loss phase.
I had to stop an extended egg fast a couple weeks ago after learning that I’m sensitive to chicken egg whites. But, I’m considering going back to it after finding a source of duck eggs.
It gets pretty boring eating just eggs on the fast, so I’m working on a few new recipes using duck eggs. Although I have an egg fast pancake recipe I needed to find a recipe that works with jumbo sized eggs.
That’s why I created a cream cheese pancakes recipe that makes up a larger batch than a standard recipe. The general conversion is that two duck eggs are equivalent to three chicken eggs.
The other thing that I’ve noticed is that duck eggs result in lighter and fluffier breads. So, these cream cheese pancakes are rise better than the egg fast pancakes I’ve made in the past with chicken eggs.
If you can find a good supplier locally, I highly recommend checking out duck eggs. A lot of people have developed a food sensitivity to chicken eggs and you may not even know you have it.
Thankfully, duck eggs are an option for me because the protein is different than chicken eggs. So, those with sensitivity to chicken egg whites can eat duck egg whites.
My food sensitivity test showed that I’m not sensitive to chicken egg yolks, so I can still have them if I want. The yolks are the best part of the egg anyway.
Although I used duck eggs, I made sure this cream cheese pancakes recipe could be used with standard large eggs. If you want the fluffiest pancakes, I do recommend using the duck eggs.
I’m planning to go back on an egg fast this week. So, I made up my egg fast quiche to make eating lunch at work quick and easy.
My meal plan for work days is to have the cream cheese pancake for breakfast and then a slice of quiche for lunch. I’ll also be doing an intermittent fast.
I’ve actually been dealing with bloating and I suspect that I may have low stomach acid. So, I’ll be trying out the remedies suggested by Dr. Axe.
Most of my weight gain seems to be from water retention and inflammation. Not having enough acid in your stomach can cause bloating and other issues. It’s even been linked to hormonal imbalance.
You’ll also love that these flourless cream cheese pancakes are super low in carbs.
When I do the nutritional calculation, I’m only coming up with 1.8 grams total carb for 3 small pancakes which is only about 1 gram net after subtracting the fiber from psyllium.
I used about three tablespoons of batter for each small pancakes. And, I ended up with twenty-one pancakes which works out to be seven servings.
So, this low carb pancake recipe makes enough to give you a week’s worth of breakfast. You can eat them all in a week, share them, or freeze some for later.
