P3 low carb pancakes

Rate this Entry
These are so good, I don't even want regular pancakes anymore.

Makes 4 cakes on a 12 inch pan or griddle.

2 eggs
2 T. coconut flour (you can substitute golden flaxmeal, I sometimes use both)
1/4 C. ricotta cheese
salt
vanilla or nutmeg
1/2 tsp. baking powder (you can leave this out, OR you can make your own--Use a 1/4 tsp cream of tartar plus 1/8 tsp baking soda. Regular baking powder contains cornstarch, which is only needed if the baking powder is being stored.)

Mix the batter with whisk or immersion blender and cook on lightly oiled surface.

Note: You can substitute greek yogurt for the ricotta--it gives a bit different texture. Cottage cheese also works if its not too loose--and don't add the salt.
For P3 you can omit the baking powder (contains a bit of cornstarch) or you can substitute 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar plus a 1/8 tsp. baking soda.

I like to have this with some bacon and a berry compote:

1 C. mixed berries
2 T. red wine (or water or some strong rooibos tea if you like)
pinch salt
konjac powder (glucomannan) (no carbs or calories in this--only fiber)

Microwave a minute, or until warm. You can add more sweetener if the berries need it. Sift a small amount of konjac powder over berries and stir. ( I keep my konjac in a shaker bottle with very fine holes. Thickening will start within a minute but will continue for a while, so don't start off adding more too quickly, thinking it isn't working.)

If you want to get fancy, top the berries with a dollop of whipped cream or some sweetened greek yogurt.
