Low-Carb Pancakes (Soy Powder)

Low-Carb Pancakes (Soy Powder)

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup soy protein powder
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
Simply mix together all the ingredients with a whisk - batter may be a bit runny. Cook on a lightly greased skillet as you would any pancake recipe. Drop batter on surface large spoonfuls. Cook until each side is lightly browned.

Serve with butter and a low-carb store bought syrup. Or for an interesting low-carb topping, mix 1 Tablespoon of sugar-free jam with 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons water and microwave for 45 seconds.

There's only about 6 grams of carbs in these pancakes made primarily of protein powder and sour cream.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank CurbingCarbs for this recipe.

I have to admit that I was a little reluctant to try them, but they are not bad at all. Yummy!!

We have enjoyed the pancakes made to the above recipe. We purchased some banana flavored protein powder for use as a shake and substituted that for plain soy powder. Adding walnuts it made great banana walnut pancakes.

I don't get it. Why use soy and add dairy?

I've made this recipe several times and I am always happy with the results. Great for those of us with celiac disease (gluten free) and even though I don't have to eat low carb, I prefer to for health reasons. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Supplement soy powder with your own Protein Powder, and get a real kick from this recipe. Tastes like those homemade recipes, but healthier!

Pleasantly surprised! We're just watching carbs for weight. I added cinnamon, cloves, a little wheat bran and ground flax. Added a little cream to dilute it. Delicious! Thanks... this is, by far, the best pancake recipe out there.

Thank you for this fabulous recipe. I started a low carb diet and don't miss my pancake. I even spiced it up with vanilla, cinnamon and splenda for sweets. GREAT RECIPE.

Excellent! I have gestational diabetes and this doesn't raise my blood sugar at all. I substitute vanilla whey protein powder. I get about 5 pancakes out of this recipe and it makes me feel like I'm eating a bunch. Thanks so much for this recipe.

These pancakes are fabulous! I used vanilla flavored whey protein powder instead of soy. They tasted just like crepes. We experimented with sugar free syrup, rolled with cream cheese and sugar free strawberry jam (like a blintze), and fresh strawberries with whipped cream (like a Belgian waffle). My 19 year-old daughter started a low carb program a few days ago to take off the freshman 15 and she could not be more excited about the possibility of pancakes!

Even the kids had no complaints, infact, they didn't even notice a difference! Thank you for a very yummy recipe.

For some healthy carbs you can also add 2 tablespoons of Quaker rolled oats. I made this recipe this AM, before I saw this website. :) I don't have sour cream, but I saw a reviewer used plain yogurt. I think next time I will add a spoonful to the batter.

I haven't had these pancakes before but I am going to give it a shot someday. I am getting into the soy world.

The best pancakes!!! I tried a couple of different low carb recipes... none came close. Very good paired with sugar-free syrup.

VERY VERY GOOD! I didn't think it was going to be good at all, so I already had a bad opinion before I even ate them, but there were delicious! I had sugar free syrup too. I must say it was just as good (if not better) than regular pancakes!

Been enduring two weeks of carblessness with South Beach...and made these for breakfast this morning. Crushed a few pecans and sprinkled them on top of the cooking pancakes so they baked in.... soooo delicious!!! Thank you!

These were fantastic. They were actually better than real pancakes. They cooked evenly and were easier to turn. The texture was so light and fluffy my soy protein powder was unflavoured so I had even less carbs but it needed a little splenda. I topped it with lemon juice and splenda (added a few carbs). Willdefinitely be making again.

My husband and I haven't had anything bread like in a month. I had tried baking in the past but it all came out dry and chalky. I made 10 pancakes out of the one serving recipe- about 1 carb per pancake and served with sugar free syrup and I loved them as the closest things to pancakes! My husband used them to make a breakfast sandwich with eggs and turkey bacon. Definitely a recipe to keep!!
