Low-Carb Pancakes #Recipe @PegCochran

My husband loves pancakes.  Unfortunately he needs to watch his carb intake so that means pancakes are off the table (pun intended) so to speak.  I wondered if there was any way to make pancakes lower carb so I went poking around on the Internet.  I found this recipe at the Novice Chef and decided to give it a go.  It was a huge hit! Hubby ate a dozen pancakes the first go-round. Even if you're not eating low-carb, I think you would enjoy these!

2 large eggs
1 tablespoon water
2 oz cream cheese, cubed
2/3 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar or equivalent amount of your favorite sweetener

Place eggs, water and cream cheese in blender or food processor (I used a food processor.) Blend briefly then add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.  

Heat griddle and spray with non-stick spray.  Pour three to four tablespoons of batter on hot griddle and cook until bubbles form on the top of the pancake.  Flip and cook until the other side is golden brown.

Serve with sugar-free syrup (or regular syrup) and butter if desired.

A Park Avenue princess discovers the dark side of 1930s New York when a debutante ball turns deadly in this gripping historical mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Rhys Bowen.

Manhattan, 1938. Tired of being trapped in the gilded cage of her family’s expectations, Elizabeth Adams has done what no self-respecting socialite would think to do: She’s gotten herself a job. Although Elizabeth’s dream is to one day see her photographs on the front page of the Daily Trumpet, for now she’s working her way up as the newsroom’s gal Friday.

But fetching coffee isn’t exactly her idea of fun, so when veteran reporter Ralph Kaminsky needs a photographer to fill in for a last-minute assignment, Elizabeth jumps at the chance. At the Waldorf Hotel, Elizabeth is tasked with tracking down the season’s “It girl,” Gloria DeWitt, who will be making her society debut. Working her own connections to New York’s upper crust, Elizabeth manages to land an exclusive interview with Gloria.

Then Gloria’s stepmother is shot dead in a Waldorf bathroom, placing Elizabeth at the scene of a headline-worthy scandal: “Murder of a Society Dame.” Now Elizabeth will have to get the scoop on the killer before her good name gets dragged through the gossip columns—or worse. . . .

From a Goodreads Review:

"What absolute fun! Penned with wit, humor and style, MURDER, SHE REPORTED gets my definite, “Yes!”

Catch up with me on Facebook!



“The clever ‘Dear Reader’ asides serve up just the right amount of dry wit, and the occasional blog post snippet provides readers with some helpful tips alongside their mystery. The case is always well plotted, and the fictitious Michigan small-town setting provides an intriguing supporting cast with a bevy of interesting personalities. Readers will root for Shelby to solve the case and stay on the edge of their seats until she does.”

  2. The pancakes look really good! Don't know why but my computer ate my comment yesterday. I wanted to let you know I finished Bought the Farm and am glad Shelby has made a man choice. Now I want to know how that works out!

    1. Hi Pat! I hope you approved of Shelby's choice. I had a hard time deciding myself!
