LCHF pancakes

One of the most common questions I am asked is how do my kids react to a LCHF diet?
For the most part they are super positive and love that they can eat all the foods they love as much as they want.
Foods like butter, cream, cheese, bacon etc etc
I mean what’s not to love really!
While they are not as strict as me ( I am in ketosis and fat adapted) they do want to try and stay as low as possible as they recognise how much better they feel eating this way.
This does mean they have challenges when it comes to some favourite foods of theirs like lasagna, pizza, pie and pancakes. (what is with the “P”s?)
We have played with a variety of grain free pancakes recipes and they do tend to find them a big heavy on the coconut flavour. I love them though:P
This one is based on a recipe currently doing the rounds but the first time I made it they said it was too much like an omelette so I have tweaked the flavouring a bit and believe I am on a winner!
And with just four ingredients!
  We are blessed in Launceston to have a nearby organic blueberry farm so we go and pick   15-20kg when they are in season and then freeze.  If you don’t have a deep freezer then can I suggest you do yourself and favour and invest in one!
I served with some blueberries (30gr)  and double cream (4tsp)

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 eggs
  • 110gr cream cheese
  • 1tsp vanilla powder
  • ¼tsp baking powder
Method
  1. Blend all your ingredients together really well. You don't want any cream cheese lumps in the mix.
  2. Let it settle for a few minutes.
  3. You want a warm pan but not too hot as these will need to cook slower than flour based pancakes.
  4. Patience is required or you will end up with cheesy scramble (ask me how I know!)
  5. I used coconut oil but butter or ghee would be fine.
  6. I don't make them too big either.
  7. You need to let them cook almost the whole way through before turning them. Wait until they look like this
  8. Then you really only need to flip for a few seconds then remove from pan.
  9. We are blessed in Launceston to have a nearby organic blueberry farm so we go and pick 15-20kg when they are in season and then freeze. If you don't have a deep freezer then can I suggest you do yourself and favour and invest in one!
  10. I served with some blueberries (30gr) and double cream (4tsp)
