Low-Carb Pancakes (Cottage Cheese)

(1 serving)

  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon soy flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon cream of tartar*
  • 1/2 package artificial sweetener
*Please see notes below

Beat the egg whites until frothy, then add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.

In separate bowl, mix together the egg yolk, cottage cheese, soy flour and sweetener.

Combine the two mixtures and stir until just combined.

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.
