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.

Too eggy. Too much of an omelet texture. Adding a little almond flour worked wonders.

These pancakes are wonderful! I will be having them a lot. It is very good to have a reliable recipe. Since I have been low carb now for 6 months I have tried many recipes that were awful! This one is a winner! Thank you!

This recipe is the best. Better than regular pancakes. These are spongy, filling and easy to make. I want to make an Eggs Benedict with these today!

These are the best pancakes, even better than normal high-carb pancakes! If you do not like them, you made them wrong or used the wrong kind of pork rinds.

I've been making this recipe for a while now, but in addition to the ingredients listed, I add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or almond extract or any flavor you like more or less depending on your taste. Makes quite a difference!

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.

How many carbs per serving?

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.
