Okay so the Krispy Kreme doughnut cake mix I came across this morning made me HANGRY – but instead of eating not so good stuff – I’m making waffles!! I found this recipe originally on Ditch the Carbs so I just HAD to try it!!! (and SCORE they did NOT need any protein powders). I give her recipe a total thumbs up!
Well this morning my son wanted pancakes for breakfast but instead of eating regular pancakes I did Cream Cheese Pancakes – I mean after all a fat mom trying to get fit has to stick to her plan to reach her goals right?!
These cream cheese pancakes were delicious! The recipe below makes two 5″ pancakes so you will need to adjust your recipes according to how many pancakes you want to make.
I highly recommend using softened cream cheese so it blends better for you. You can use it cold but it may remain sorta chunky in your batter (You will have to excuse the Avocado and Coconut oil in the photo – they are not part of the pancakes I use them all of the time so they are always on my countertop LOL).
If you want to make these into protein cream cheese pancakes just add some pritein powder.
Then comes the dilemma of what on earth to use as a topping if you are low carb / keto…..
To keep them LCHF you can top them with real butter. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are all lowish carbs if you watch your serving size. There are some low-carb syrups as well, but people’s opinions on which taste acceptable differ (so proceed at your own rick there). I also love using Smucker’s sugar free blackberry jam – it only has 5g carbs and 3g net carbs – ca you say SCORE?!?!
You could also do semi non-traditional toppings like coconut, or even bacon. And let’s be real here you can never go wrong with bacon! Am I right?
Add extra nutrients to your breakfast with this protein packed omelet. This omelet only looks fancy – an easy, elegant, delicious omelet!! But, it is actually quite simple to make and can be done in just a few minutes!
This dish can be perfect for anyone following the keto or low carb Lifestyle since it is packed with all of the right nutrients to help your body get healthy and/or stay healthy!
I go back and forth with following a high fat low carb low carb lifestyle. I always feel better when I eat low carb and I always see higher amounts of weight loss then with just Plexus alone, but it can be a challenge to stick with as a wife and mom. Well, I’m back to low carb this fall and finding new ways to stick with it!
I love making pancakes on Sunday mornings for my family – there is just something about it that makes a wife and mom happy inside (well at least for me). And, we all know fall means pumpkin pice everything so I decided to take my Cream Cheese Pancake recipe and pumpkin spice it up. These pancakes were absolutely delicious and very filling too.
Trust me these are a hit even for those not following a keto or low carb meal plan! Have you tried cream cheese pancakes yet?
So no matter how well you try to follow a ketogenic way of eating, we all get hit with those times when a quick snack is a must have! These Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs are little wonderful miracles of deliciousness. Plus they are super convenient – you can make up a big batch and keep them in the freezer (which is what I do – I make them a few dozen at a time).
Most recipes out there call for stevia – and to be honest I just do NOT like the aftertaste of that stuff. But I have discovered Swerve which I do like as a sweetener for my baked goods.
This recipe is super simple too – and for a busy mom like myself fast and easy is always welcomed in the kitchen. I make mine the size of regular peanut butter cups but you can make your smaller sized also if you use smaller muffin tins or silicone molds.
Remember to calculate your own nutrition information in a database using the brand names of your ingredients. I recommend FatSecret. Each brand will be slightly different and nutrition information can vary and your macros will also vary if you change the size of your fat bombs as well (my calculations below are based on the size fat bombs I have made with my brand ingredients).
If you need help on how to calculating your macros on your on recipes you can let me know anytime!
