Low-Carb Pancakes (Pork Rinds)

Low-Carb Pancakes (Pork Rinds)

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 of a 3-oz bag of unflavored pork rinds
  • 3 packets of Splenda (or other sugar alternative)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg
Crumble pork rinds until they resemble bread crumbs.

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!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank CurbingCarbs for this recipe.

Just made them. They were awesome. I ended up making a breakfast sandwich with an egg and bacon. I like maple flavor, so I mixed a tablespoon sugar-free blackberry jam, water and some sugar-free syrup. I got that sweet and savory flavor from the pancake sandwich, that I love and miss in a low-carb diet. I added 2 tablespoons of water to the batter, because I like a thinner pancake.

Okay, but I'll stick to cream cheese pancakes.

Surprisingly delicious! After 9 months of eating low carb, I was getting very tired of eggs and bacon. Thanks so much for something different.

I use this recipe for waffles, pancakes, AND muffins! It is amazing! I just leave out or add spices and seasonings depending on what I am doing with it. Makes yummy low carb biscuits for biscuits and gravy!

Tastes like French toast more than pancakes. I still love them though!

From Cole 727

By my count, this recipe has about 5.2 grams carbs per serving. 1.2 from eggs, 2.5 from cream and 1.5 from the sugar substitute. The pork rinds are carb-free.

I don't usually comment on recipes, but I couldn't believe how good these were! Every once in a while, you get a little bit of a bacon-ish taste, but if you crush the pork rinds really well (I used my food pro) and let the batter sit as recommended, you'll hardly be able to taste them. These are WAY better than the low carb mixes from the store!

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! ;)

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.
