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.

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.

Keto: Bacon appreciation week #1

The rumors are true! Since bacon is full of protein and fat with no carbs, you can eat bacon every day on a keto diet.

This week, we highlight our favorite recipes that include — you guessed it — bacon. In this meal plan, you will enjoy recipes like Keto cheeseburger meatloaf, Keto cobb salad, and Crispy bacon and kale with fried eggs.

What is it that makes bacon so addictive? Is it the aroma? Is it the sound of the bacon sizzling in the pan or the sight of the beautifully crisp, fatty meat? Perhaps you would agree that it’s the first salty, smoky bite. It’s no wonder why bacon is loved by many.

Pro tip: Make sure to buy good quality bacon without sugar. Check out our bacon guide for cooking tips and more helpful information. You can also mix it up by using turkey bacon or beef bacon in place of pork bacon.

    Has anyone tried making the batter the night before to save time in the morning? I just can't skip breakfast as I wake up starving, but I'm always in a rush.

    I add a small amount of milled chia to these pancakes instead of the psyllium husk. It works really well, a bit like a light French crepe. Great with berries, but also with cream cheese and smoked salmon as a canapé.
  14. Christina Nopen
    I use Splenda in your coffee and drink crystal light during the day . Is that OK or should I use a different kind of sweetner?
  15. Caroline M.
    I added 1/4 tsp vanilla, 2-4 drops of liquid Stevia, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon - more like french toast, which I love.
  16. Michiel
    Try going the savory route instead by adding a few slices of smoked salmon.
  17. Karen B
    It sure is nice not going to bed hungry every night (i.e. former programs)! Lovin' these recipes and this program!
  18. Kerrie A
    I have these pancakes every morning. Delicious. I halved all the ingredients to make it one person serving size and added a few drops of liquid stevia, a splash of almond milk, vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. I cook in a mix of coconut oil and butter. I then top with queens sugar-free maple syrup. So delicious and keeps me full until lunchtime so cuts out my mid-morning snacking.

    What is the Psyllium Husk Powder for? Can I use something in its place as it's expensive and I can only buy it on line so I can't start this program yet :(

    These were yummy! I had them with whipped heavy cream mixed with a little bit of Swerve sweetener. I'm assuming the nutritional info. includes the berries?

    Hi Carlocki!

    No, psyllium husk powder is not a sweetener.

    I tried to make these and they remained liquid, and never quite came together. I am a little dismayed at all the bread substitute type recipes. None have worked so far...

    My husband and I don't tolerate dairy well and I'm allergic to almonds, so here are a couple of moderately low carb pancake recipes I developed.
    Mix together
    1) serves 2
    2 heaped dessert spoons of coconut flour
    2 heaped dessert spoons of wheat bran
    2 Tbsp protein powder (optional - I usually use pumpkin seed protein)
    1 tsp psyllium husk (doesn't need to be powdered)
    1 - 2 tsp baking powder
    Work in
    1 - 2 tsp coconut oil
    Stir in
    1 large duck egg or two chicken eggs
    Add milk substitute as required (I use soy +/- coconut plus water) to get barely porable consistency.

    Can add half a cup of fresh or thawed blueberries or 2/3 cup pumpkin puree plus cinnamon/ginger/cloves and less water.

    I usually cook them in coconut oil along with half a cut-up apple per person.

    Does anyone have a pancake recipe without cheese, yogurt or sour cream? I can have dairy but not fermented dairy.

    These were amazing! I also added a little vanilla and cinnamon and a splash of milk to obtain pancake batter consistency. Cooked in butter. No need to add any sweetener. I served them with homemade whip cream and fresh berries. Yum! *made the recipe for three servings and it made six hand sized pancakes.
  30. Jeff
    I added a couple of Tbsp of steel cut oats in order to absorb some of the liquid from the cottage cheese, which cause pancakes to stick like glue. This works well and adds an extra taste dimension. Cooked in olive oil & butter.
  31. Derek
    Swap the cottage cheese for cream cheese, it works great.

    Ok... where do I begin??? The pancakes and cream were great! I think a couple of pointers would make the recipe better. 1- the coconut oil or butter should be liquid first or else its super tenious trying to mix it 2. Use an electric mixer for the cream! Omgosh I was hand mixing for 20 min and it hurt! Freeze a metal bowl and the wisk for 15 min first also. 3. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the cakes, and sugarless confectioners sugar to the cream. I recommend those for a more french toast taste (unless you're going the salmon route). Thank you though- I will make it again (with a mixer)!
  33. LM
    How do you prevent them from sticking to the pan. No amount of grease helps.
  34. Leslie
    For anyone as bad at flipping pancakes as me get a MUFFIN TOP baking pan. They come in perfect little fluffy rounds. Play with heat and times but mine were just about done after 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Happy low-carbing!
  35. Carrie
    I haven't made these yet but as far as bread type recipes i make pancakes with 2 oz cream cheese and two eggs. Just toss in the blender with 1 tsp cinnamon, unless you dont like cinnamon. Perfect and so quick and easy. Let mixture sit a minute or so for the bubbles to settle. Cook like you cook any pancakes. You can increase or decrease recipe just keep the proportion the same. Made without the cinnamon for savory crepes. Ive even cooked extra to reheat and i like them that way, too. Also, try the pizza recipe on here, the one with the egg and cheese crust. That came out for me and tasted amazingly like pizza crust. Like people say in comments i added a little garlic powder to the egg and cheese mixture a blender. It seemed thin so i tossed in a little more cheese. I used cheddar since i didn't have enough mozarella. Still delicious. Other non low carbers ate it, too snd and enjoyed it.

    These did not fry well, very delicate. A bit too eggy for me.
  43. Caroline
    Is the butter or coconut oil considered part of the batter or are they meant to be used to fry the pancakes only?

    Do the nutritonal values include the toppings?
  45. Dana
    Yes. You can do it all ahead of time and then freeze in portions.

    I throw the frozen pancakes into a steamer basket to thaw and heat.

  46. KJG
    I haven't made these yet, but I used Xanthum Gum in place of psyllium husk in the Oopsie bread recipe, and it came out PERFECT. I would try that! (I used the same amount.)
  47. Frannie
    I was wondering if the oil is added or if it is for frying?

    Metamucil powder. Walmart has the store brand. It's just fiber.
  49. msdav
    Oh my goodness these are good! I made with generic orage flavored metamucil instead of just plain expensive psyllium husk powder. 1:1 ratio, with fresh blueberries. I thought low carb would be so much harder! One pancake was enough for me. Maybe more later. Turned out perfect enough I took pictures!
  50. msdav
    No. Just for frying.
