Ingredients

Pancakes
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 7 oz. 200 g (225 ml) cottage cheese
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (10 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • 2 oz. 50 g butter or coconut oil
Toppings
  • 2 oz. 50 g fresh raspberries or fresh blueberries or fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup 225 ml heavy whipping cream

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Add eggs, cottage cheese and psyllium husk to a medium size bowl and mix together. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken up a bit.
  2. Heat up butter or oil in a non-stick skillet. Fry the pancakes on medium-low heat for 3–4 minutes on each side. Don't make them too big or they will be hard to flip.
  3. Add cream to a separate bowl and whip until soft peaks form.
  4. Serve the pancakes with the whipped cream and berries of your choice.

Tip!

If you want a really fluffy pancake, and don't mind spending a few more minutes making them, you can separate the eggs. Use the egg yolks as the instructions say but whip up the egg whites in a separate bowl. Add the egg whites to the batter, carefully folding them in so that the air you whipped into them doesn't get knocked out.

These pancakes are also a great snack served cold. Wrap a few up and bring them to work with you!

Serving suggestions

If you feel like serving them with something other than berries and whipped cream, we suggest trying our raspberry jam, butter cream or hazelnut spread.

Storing and reheating

These pancakes taste best when they are freshly made but keep well in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can also store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

If you want to store them stacked on top of each other you probably want to place a piece of parchment paper between each pancake, or they'll stick together.

The best way to reheat the pancakes is to melt a small knob of butter in a pan on medium heat and place the pancakes in there. It only takes about 30 seconds on each side to heat them up.

    It would be helpful if the recipes specified what size eggs are used (grams), particularly if people want to make a big batch - as there can be a huge difference between a 43g egg and a 73g egg.

    Standard recipe convention calls for using Large eggs when baking or cooking.

    These pancakes are awful, they tasted a lot of cheese and eggs, it was like eating omelette with berries and cream. YUCK! Waste of ingredients and energy.

    can you use oat fiber?

    can you use oat fiber?

    Unfortunately, oat fiber is not a good substitute for psyllium.

  6. M Smith
    What kind of cottage cheese -- creamed or dry curd?
  7. Marcin
    There are too many better recipes on this site to waste time for these pancakes. If not for the berries and whipped cream, it would be a very sad morning.
  8. Ruby Oakley
    I made these for breakfast this morning.
    Followed advice from above & added some vanilla essence and cinnamon and pinch of stevia, had with natural yogurt and berries.
    Very impressed. Loved them.
    Will defo make again
    Thanks
  9. Vicky
    i just made these and they worked perfectly, yes a bit bland on there own , but if you heat the berries in microwave till hot and syrupy and pour them over the pancakes and top with thick whipped cream then they are yum.. and no need to add cinnamon or vanilla which increase the carb amount .... will definately make these again ...
  10. Shirley
    THE BEST replacement for bread that I have ever tried. These really are great cold. You can make an open faced sandwich with them. I've been re-warming them and putting a couple of eggs on top. Outstanding!
  11. Chanelle
    We made these with Full Fat Cream Cheese as a substitute and they came out lovely, I think the flavours compliment one another a bit more as well. Not as cheesy as cottage cheese.
  12. Daniel Kujawa
    pretty bad. I have tried other keto style pancakes but these are not which I would make again
  13. maria
    Just made these this morning. Loved them! They tasted like french toast to me. Next, let's see what my hubby thinks ;)

    Quick couple of questions. Is a serving 1 pancake? Also, you show 5g carbs but I see 3g for fiber. Have the carbs already been calculated minus the fiber?

    This recipe as written makes 4 servings. The number of pancakes will depend on how big you make them. For the carbs, the 3g has already been subtracted from the total carbs. These are 5g net carbs per serving.

    I personally found these taste great with chocolate on top (Loving Earth is my pick), since it tastes quite cheesy! I do add some vanilla essence too though :) Love them!
  17. Leslie McCauslin
    Pleasantly surprised! Very fluffy.
  18. Valerie Bowden
    These were great. I made recipe for four, made two pancakes as per recipe, then put salt and pepper in to remaining mixture so I could go savoury with the leftovers for later today and tomorrow. Yum

    Is a serving 3 pancakes or 1?

    Is a serving 3 pancakes or 1?

    That depends on how many pancakes you get out of the batch. The recipe, as written, makes 4 servings.

  21. Raven Nevermore
    Had these two mornings in a row now, these are fantastic, o was hesitant as people were commenting they tasted too eggy! I will eat eggs but not massive on the taste some days, but with a small handful of berries and cream, these are great.
  22. Sharon
    Anyone know if you can use this recipe in a waffle maker?
    I love these pancakes btw, I have squeezed lemon on top with keto sweetener.

    Hi.
    When I first made these, they tasted a bit bland. I added a little honey and enjoy them alot now. When making 1 serving, I get 2 pancakes from it. Also pays to leave it stand for the full 10 minutes to bind properly before frying.

    Rosie, just a heads up that honey is not a great option when eating keto or LCHF as it is very high in natural sugars and has a very high carb count.

  26. Amy Giddins
    This may be a stupid question - But if you are making the 4 serving option, can you eat all "four" of those servings or is that for IE four people with one pancake …. hope this makes sense.

    4 servings indicate that this recipe is designed to serve 4 people.

    They were good but they are omelettes not pancakes.
  29. Sxygy
    I concur completely. Tried this today but unfortunately didn't watch the video first. If I had seen how soft and weird texture they were, I would have saved my time and ingredients. Forced myself to eat one and it was soooo bad, threw the rest away and the mixture too. Just awful.....really awful :-(
  30. mollipod
    Made these today OMG they are just delicious 😋 will definitely be on the table again
  31. karenvbrooks
    in South Africa we don't get full cream cottage cheese, anyway I hate that chunky stuff as I was forced to diet as an 8 year old! So can we use cream cheese or marscapone?

    Made these for the first time today. Ate them with a little full fat Greek yoghurt, raspberries and some smoked streaky bacon on the side. Very good! Some people have said that they are too eggy and don't like the texture but I let the mixture stand for the full time and it thickened up nicely.
  33. Shireen
    Karen I'm also in SA I use Kiri to make them or you can use any full fat cream cheese, Piladelphia is also an option.. They are delicious - nothing like the horrible chunky cottage cheese we ate on other diets!
  34. Shireen
    I love these! I serve them with frozen berries that I cook down onto a type of "jam", add a tiny touch of stevia and serve with whipped or double cream. For savoury a bit if grated cheddar and some crispy bacon or cream cheese and smoked salmon. My family regard this as a treat breakfast.
  35. Elizabeth
    1 serving does not look like enough food for breakfast. i make a similar pancake and use 4 eggs with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, and whiz it in the blender i also add vanilla and cinnamon and some sweetener.
  36. Elizabeth
    the batter is runny so i make this more as a large crepe
  37. Sandra Dudley
    I made this exactly as the recipe suggested and used the pancakes not only as directed with whipped cream and berries, but also as a savoury breakfast with bacon and sautéed mushrooms. Both ways of eating these pancakes were delicious. I agree with some of the other reviews in that the mixture should be left to stand and thicken at least the full recommended 10 minutes prior to cooking (I used an electric hand-mixer the second time and found they were more fluffy).

    Also, in response to some comments, the pancakes do taste ‘eggy’ and more like an omelette than a conventional style pancake but that’s what this diet/way of eating is all about. Retraining our taste-buds and open up to different ingredients, moving away from conventional foods that made us sick in the first place...

    I have tried quite a few of the recipes on DD since I started this WOE and so far, have found all of them to be winners in our house :) Keep up the good work DD Team!!

  38. Meeques
    These are savory! If you use a little bit of salt and/or other spices and eat them with bacon you‘re good! But otherwise there are better keto pancake recipes out there
  39. e.fidziukiewicz
    Absolutely delicious. I only added almost double amount if psyllium just for better consistency when frying.
  40. Elizabeth
    These were delicious. I beat the cottage cheese and egg together first and they did not taste eggy at all. Thank you DD.
  41. Saroja Malladi
    These are really great SAVORY pancakes. Do not eat them with berries and cream unless you like the sweet/salty/savory combo.
  42. Dan
    I just made these for the first time; they came out great and will add to my rotation.
    I found the 2 serving was enough for one; I also added more psyllium husk to make it less watery
    Came out great!
  43. Michelle
    I love pancakes - these are not pancakes. I hate eggs - I utterly detest them. This is just too "eggy", as others have said. They smell like eggs, they taste like eggs, they have the same texture as eggs. Are there ANY keto recipes for pancakes that do NOT end up tasting/smelling/feeling like eggs? I wanted to like these, I really did. I just cannot eat them. Now I'm hungry and sad... :(

    Agreed. This was quite unpleasant. I just ate the berries and cream by themselves.

    Can I replace the psyllium husk with coconut flour (or other nut flour)? How much would I need?
    Reply: #297
  47. Kerry Merritt Team Diet Doctor
    Ground flax seeds or chia seeds can make a good substitution for psyllium husk. This link should be helpful! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/guides/psyllium-husk#psyllium-sub...

    I thought these were quite good - made for 2 servings, added 1 tbsp of Lakanto Monk Fruit sweetener, a few drops of liquid Monk Fruit and about ½ tsp of ground cinnamon. Had them with whipped cream and a little Sukrin Gold syrup (no time to thaw the berries I had in the freezer).
    Will make dem in a blinis pan next time, which should give around 7-8 pancakes for 2 servings.
    Will definitely make again!

    Oh and I blended everything with an immersion blender, as I didn't want the lumps from the cottage cheese :-)

    So I read the reviews on these and went in with no high expectations. And so I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed them for lunch today. I did observe what many said and added cinnamon and vanilla to the batter. I also threw in some flax seed and a dash of almond milk. The next time I make them I'll probably add more cinnamon and vanilla to enhance the flavor. I made the recipe for 3 servings (I only had about 5-1/2 oz of cottage cheese). I ended up with 10 5-inch crepes/pancakes. I used a non-stick pan and butter (which made them a bit crispy which was lovely) and did not have any trouble with making these. Like others have noted, the pan should be fairly hot and you need to let them cook awhile before trying to turn. I did try to turn one too early and it was a bit of a mess. I ate the four smallest that I made and am freezing the other 6 for later. I served them with the whipped cream and a handful of blueberries--this was what made it divine!!

    Just a question, is this 4g net carbs per 1 pancake or for all 4 together? 4g net carbs is alot for just one pancake? on top of the cream and berries or is that included in the carb count?

    This recipe as written makes 4 servings and is 4g net carbs per serving. If you make 4 pancakes from the batch then 1 is a serving. If you make 8 pancakes, then 2 is a serving. The toppings are included in the carb count because they are not listed as (optional) in the list of ingredients.

    Since it had cheese in it, I used it as a dinner side without the cream and fruit.
