FAZEONE,
that is 1 gram of carbs per 8 pancakes. The pancakes aren't huge, they end up being about 2 inches across, bigger ones just don't flip so well when frying as the texture is not the same as wheat flour.

I think you could try it with almond flour. A little higher in carbs, but not too bad I should think. A different taste, and will need some experimentation. Let us know what happens.

I made a similar recipe on Wednesday morning, except it had a 2tablespoon of peanut butter in it. I used a bit of my home made jam on them.

I'm not losing weight...I'm getting rid of it! I have not intention of finding it again!

These sound good, James. Is there a way to "save" recipes just for my own purpose so that I don't have to go thru the recipe forum to hunt for them?

That is a great idea. I made some "tortillas" with pork rinds yesterday and was not that impressed. I think maybe the longer it was you quit eating regular type breads, pancakes, tortillas, etc. the better it probably taste.

Richard,
yes I think that would work with the little bit of extra texture interest. Keep in mind that pancakes don't take long to fry, so the shredded carrot would be pretty raw, unless you shred the carrot in small bits, cook it in the microwave very briefly, then add it to the batter, then make that pancakes ... that would probably work.

Probably worth some experimentation.

LOW CARB PANCAKES OR WAFFLES



Here is a recipe for low carb pancakes, and they taste like regular pancakes, I put a little butter on top and a little "E.D. SMITH No Sugar Added" syrup which was still about 15% sugar. Regular maple syrup is 70% carbs, and I only had a little.

This will make 8 pancakes, fewer larger pancakes will be harder to flip.

8 Pancakes:

5 tablespoons plain (or vanilla) whey protein powder (40 grams)
1 egg
20 grams of oil, like corn oil
20 grams of water (or whipping cream)
1/8 teaspoon baking powder (optional, but fluffier with it)

Whisk the dry ingredients together in a small bowl. After whisk in the egg and liquids.

Lightly grease a small nonstick skillet with oil or cooking spray and heat on medium. Spoon in the batter to form about 8 separate pancakes.

When bubbles appear all over the pancake and the batter on top looks like it's starting to set up carefully work a spatula around the edges and then under the pancake to flip it over. Cook until the second side is lightly browned.

Keep the heat of the pan a little lower than for flour based pancakes. Don't let it get too dark or it will taste a little bitter. Serve with butter and low carb syrup, if desired.

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION OF THE 8 PANCAKES (120 grams of pancakes)
Calories (295)
Carbs (1 gram)
Fat (25 grams)
Protein (36 grams)

Carb percentage by weight: 4%

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION OF 5 GRAMS BUTTER AND 30 GRAMS E.D. SMITH SYRUP
Calories (65)
Carbs (5 grams)
Fat (5 grams)
Protein (0 grams)

All together 360 calories, 36 grams of protein and only 11 grams of carbs, and it tastes 100% like regular pancakes with syrup, ... OK to be truthful, 90% like regular pancakes.

Same recipe used in the waffle maker, and here that pinch of baking powder is a good idea:
