Low-Carb Pancakes (Pork Rinds)
(1 serving) Printable Version
In a separate bowl, beat eggs until frothy then add remaining ingredients and continue to beat until well mixed. Add pork rinds to the egg/cream mixture and set aside for 5 minutes to allow batter to thicken.
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.

These pork rinds are surprisingly low in fat and have zero carbs. They may sound pretty crazy, but these little pancakes are fantastic!

As a parent of a newly diagnose T1D, I am scouring the net to feed my son. It is doubly bad since he is growing and always hungry. How can I find the actual carb count for these?

I can still taste the pork rinds. The texture was good though.

I was having serious pancake cravings and these were just what I needed. I cannot believe how good they were. I'm going to try a McGriddle type sandwich tomorrow using them.

Wow. I made this because me and my dad are the only ones in our family that are on Atkins. We added some berries and a little more cinnamon and spelnda. This was a great find! Thanks so much! ;)

I'm on a low carb and it seemed like there was NOTHING I could eat. I love this recipe.

Better than the IHOP pancake house. I was amazed at the taste. Wonderful.

These were great! I've started a low carb diet to lose the 30 pounds I gained. I stop smoking cigarettes after 40 years. I put down the cigarettes and started a sugar addiction. I will be using this recipe often.

I was good. I didn't LOVE it as much as some of the reviews here, but it did satisfy my pancake craving. Make sure to crumble the pork rinds very fine.

Due to the number of positive reviews, I decided to give it a shot. I couldn't even eat half a pancake. Pork rind pancake... I should have known better. I will mention that my husband (who'll eat anything) liked them and would eat them again.

I make a double batch of these for the week and use about 1 & 1/2 c of finely crushed pork skins. I run them in the food processor until there's an oily residue on the sides of the bowl. Not sure how much is in a bag - I buy mine at Sam's by the jug/barrel container for about $6.

I got my pork rinds already crumbled and just need to know how much to use in the recipe? 1/2 cup, 1 cup, etc. My daughter raves about these and I really want to try them. Thanks!

I added more cinnamon and splenda than it called for, but it kinda reminds me of Cinnamon toast crunch cereal... very yummy. I was quite surprised.

Can't believe this works. I used to love bites of bacon with pancakes and this has a bacon flavor built right in. What else can you do with pork rinds... bread... muffins?

These were a nice surprise! Very much like the real deal. I spread a little butter and some no-sugar-added apple butter on them and they were very tasty. The texture and flavor were wonderful. Be sure to grind the pork rinds til they resemble dust, lol!

Two thumbs up! Easy to make, and taste great. Just like pancakes.

These ARE wonderful! I vary the taste by adding 1 tsp. of different extracts - maybe eggnog for the holidays. A bit of rum extract tastes terrific if you slice a couple of strawberries over the top! Oh, and pumpkin spice in place of nutmeg is fabulous, especially during the fall. And maybe heat up the sugar-free syrup before you drizzle it. Orange or lemon extracts work brilliantly as well. Enjoy!

Well... he ate every single bite-not one crumb left, and never questioned what they were made from. EXCELLENT choice/option for a full diabetic breakfast.

These are so incredible! Finally something to eat besides eggs!
Comment submitted: 9/20/2009 (#8723)
Sounds so gross, but these are WONDERFUL. I was so skeptical but the reviews were great so I figured it was worth a shot -- definitely worth it!
