Low-Carb Pancakes (Wheat Gluten)

Low-Carb Pancakes (Wheat Gluten)

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons wheat gluten
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon splenda or 1 packet other sugar substitute
Very easy... just mix together all the ingredients with a whisk - batter might be a bit runny. Cook on a lightly greased skillet as you would any pancake recipe. Drop batter on surface by 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.

Wheat gluten and whipping cream are the primary components of these low-carb pancakes.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank CurbingCarbs for this recipe.

These are wonderful. The texture is right. They are not complicated and they are enjoyed by everyone at my house. I leave out the sweetener and spread the batter thinner when I need something "bread like" to make a sandwich.

These were fabulous! I can't believe how much protein is in them - I input the info into a nutrition calculator and they come out to 27 grams of protein! Woohoo! I spread a little bit of peanut butter and then some Greek yogurt on mine... yummy! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Thanks for the wonderful recipe, I served them to my husband and he never knew they were low carb, very impressed with how great these tasted, no weird aftertaste like many other low carb flours.

I can't believe how good this recipe is!! I've been doing low carb for 5 years, and have never had a recipe this good. They resemble french toast a bit more than pancakes, as far as the taste is concerned. Still, they are delicious!

By far the best recipe I have tried. My husband loves them and says they taste like regular pancakes to him. I do cook them in melted butter for added taste.
