Low-Carb Pancakes (Cottage Cheese)

Low-Carb Pancakes (Cottage Cheese)

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Moist and tender pancakes made with cottage cheese, stiffly beaten egg whites and just a hint of soy flour.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank CurbingCarbs for this recipe.

Good taste, but very flimsy consistency. The low-carb pork rinds pancakes on this same site are much better.

Tried your exact recipe. They stuck to the grill and fell apart. I cooked them anyway. They taste like cheese not pancake.

Thank you. These came out like the real thing, I took one egg, about 4 tablespoons of cream cheese, two table spoons of artificial sweetener and 1 tablespoon of soy flour. Whipped it all together and they came out perfect! First dish I made with soy flour that taste good.

All you actually need (for 1 person) is 1 egg, a small spoonful of flour, a big spoonful of cottage cheese, a couple shakes of salt, and then mix. It's sooo good that way. This way sounds nasty.

Ok so I tried to fry them. That didn't work they are impossible to flip. Then I tried to put them in the oven and that worked but was probably one of the worst things I've ever ate.

Great recipe! I added flax seed and almond meal, and the texture was almost dead on! Thanks for helping to make pancakes a safe food again!

I ended up modifying the recipe a bit, I used Egg Beaters, which don't really beat up! I found my version to be impossible to turn, all they did was stick to the pan. So I baked it in a little ceramic dish, and it came out light and fluffy, almost like a souffle. I found that it didn't need sweetness, it makes a nice light breakfast dish. I also found the recipe to be too much, so I halved it, which makes one good size serving.

Wow, were these delicious. I didn't have soy flour so I used bread flour, and as above I used less cream of tarter. I made four large cakes, and needed to let them really cook on the bottom (around 350 on my griddle) otherwise they tend to break up. But I was successful, and with the cottage cheese and the stevia packets, YUM YUM YUM. Hubby is diabetic and these fit the bill perfectly with some sugar-free syrup. Absolutely delicious. Next time, I'll add some flax seeds, ground up, for more body. But these are so nice and light that I didn't get that awful sick feeling like when I eat regular pancakes. BRAVO

I made this recipe by my own. Two eggs, also yolks, and two slices bacon cutted small pieces. Little bit dried parsley and chive. No more flavours. These were marvelous.

I used 1/2 tsp. and they tasted fine. 1/2 Tbsp is way too much.

From kellikue

It's probably a half teaspoon. That's how much I add when beating that many egg whites. Half Tablespoon is way too much.

Nasty... Nasty... Nasty!!! Are you sure that the Cream of Tarter isn't supposed to be 1/2 TEASPOON?
