Low/no carb recipe: pancakes

Inspired by a recipe from Blogilates which is just eggs and banana, I investigated how to make pancakes with pretty much no carbs in them.

Per person:-
  •  - 1x egg
  •  - 25g cream cheese - this is the only source of carb, so check the label carefully (the cheese I'm using at the moment has no carbs, so it can be a 100% carb free recipe)
  •  - 20ml double/whipping cream
  •  - 2/3g coconut oil to cook
  1. Blend egg(s) and cheese with a blender/food processor.
  2. Add cream and blend some more.
  3. Heat a pancake pan with your choice of oil (I use coconut oil)
  4. Pour mix into the pan and cook on a medium heat
  5. Cook mix until the top is almost set
  6. Turn pancake and cook the other side
  7. Slide onto a plate and top as desired - it will deflate when it leaves the pan and look more like a pancake.
Best eaten hot as they go quite brittle as they cool down.  I think thicker is better here for the consistency, so a smaller diameter pan like I used for the blueberry and yogurt one than I used for the cheese one at the bottom below.

With cream, Greek yogurt and blueberries - beautiful texture

Rolled up with grated cheese inside - a bit too thin and brittle
