Keto Pancake Recipe

There is nothing I miss more when doing a strict ketogenic diet than pancakes. Its’ weird because normally I’m not a huge pancake person but I can’t have them and I sit at the diner with my kids, there is something about the way the butter and syrup run down the edges of the pancake. I seriously crave it.

I was determined to figure out how to make delicious keto pancakes so that I could stay in ketosis but still satisfy this major new craving I had. I tried a few different recipes and they were either too thin or too eggy.

BUT! Alas!

I figured it out! This is the way to my heart on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee. This recipe is easy, quick, and is so good that even my kiddies love it!

Ingredients

  • 4 Eggs
  • 4oz Cream Cheese, room temp

  • 1 TSP Baking Powder

Mix all ingredients together while preheating your greased griddle or skillet to high heat.

Let sit for 2 minutes to thicken.

Make pancakes, flipping when top side is bubbling.

Serve with butter & zero carb syrup if desired.

Escarole Soup

When I was a kid my big Italian family would gather for every holiday and sit down to a multi course dinner. The memories I have from these holidays has influence how I raise my children, how I view the major holidays in my life, and how I cook.

As a child one of my favorite courses was the soup course. I know, weird! But… it was so good! The soup every single time was Escarole Soup. It was only ever around in my life during the holidays but now that I’m grown and can make my own decisions…. I make it all the time.

Is it low carb? yes. Ketogenic? yes. Is that why I make it? NO! Whether you’re eating a standard American diet or not, this is a great one. And take it from me, kids love it too.

When it comes to measurements for this soup, it varies. The video shows you step by step instructions, including how much of each item I used for the size pot that I have.

Ingredients

  • Chicken Stock
  • Eggs
  • Escarole
  • Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Simmer chicken stock. If you like things a little less salty, add water to dilute the stock a little bit.
  2. Coarsely chop escarole, rinse, and put in stock, stirring.
  3. Whisk eggs, add grated cheese, add salt and pepper.
  4. Drop egg mixture into simmering pot and stir.

Hope you all love the little piece of my childhood. Salute!
