KETO Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Pancakes


I have gone back and forth with low carb since I was 24. I feel better when eating keto and I definitely have good progress with weight loss when I eat that way, but it can be a challenge to stick with. As I get older I find that the feeling better part of being low carb has become my driving motivation for sticking to it. I'm completely committed to keto now and that has me finding new ways to stick with it!

Ways such as keto pancakes. Say what-what? Yes. Low carb pumpkin pancakes no less. And? They're pretty darned yummy...

Whether you're seriously bored with your egg fast or just a low carb or keto style eater these Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Pancakes are for you! With only 5 grams of carbs for the ENTIRE RECIPE they'll fit nicely into your plan. They're a quick and super easy breakfast option. Plus, yes, they're delicious! And oh so appropriate for pumpkin spice season. Oh, who am I kidding, I eat them year-round.

This recipe makes 3 or 4 decent sized pancakes and comes in at 345 calories according to my tracking in My Fitness Pal. I generally eat the whole thing and double the batch if hubby wants some too (or if I'm just really freaking hungry, sorry not sorry). It easily doubles or triples or quadruples...to feed however many you'd like.


For this recipe you'll need:

A mixing bowl (I like to use a large glass measuring cupto easily pour the batter in the skillet), a hand mixer, measuring spoons, and a small non-stick skillet (I love my Non-Stick Ceramic Skillet).

These Keto Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Pancakes come in at just 5 TOTAL carbs for the entire recipe and will make a delicious addition to your keto meal plan.

ingredients:


instructions:


  1. Add all ingredients to your mixing bowl and blend well with your hand mixer on medium. The batter should be smooth without lumps of cream cheese.
  2. Preheat your non-stick skillet to medium-low (3 on my stove top) and add a little ghee.
  3. Pour in just enough batter to cover the bottom of the skillet. Wait until bubbles appear and pancake seems set. Flip. Cook until done through. About 30 to 60 seconds on the second side.

And, yum!



Notes

The batter should be smooth with no bits of cream cheese visible, though I've been impatient and made them this way and it was fine, just with bits of cream cheese in the finished pancakes obviously. The cream cheese will blend better if it is softened. You can either just let it sit on the counter for a bit or soften it in the microwave for 30ish seconds. Also, the batter will be very runny. Don't cook on too high heat or they will burn on one side before setting enough to flip. Also, they should be thin. If you pour them too thick they won't set well enough to flip.

These low carb pancakes are delicious. In describing them I'd say maybe a tad bit crepe-like in consistency. More egg-y. Definitely not the consistency of a traditional wheat flour pancake, but an amazing treat when you're egg-fasting, low carb, LCHF, or ketogenic!



Let me know if you try them!

KETO Cocktails: The Lemon Drop

I love a good glass of red wine now and then, I mean it's practically a health food, right? ;) But sometimes I just want a cocktail. I'm all for moderation and having a drink now and then, but I'm just not down with the calorie, carb, and sugar counts of some of my favorites. Seriously, have you ever looked them up? Eek. So, I've set to work at converting my favorite cocktail recipes to be more keto diet friendly! The first cocktail recipe I'm tackling is the keto lemon drop . I used to love these, but haven't had one in years because of the sugar in them. In my early twenties I had a friend who used to make them for me all the time. We would have a shaker full of these, a good dinner, and a chick flick on a weeknight , it was kind of bliss. Her recipe called for so. much. SUGAR though! Looking back I think she may have used a wee bit more sugar than most, but they were really good. I think my keto-ized recipe comes pretty dang close to those del

What is 75 Hard #75Hard: Documenting My Experience With The 75 Hard Challenge

January 1, I embarked on an interesting journey; I decided to start the 75 Hard Challenge (scroll to the bottom of the post for my updated journal on my progress. I've gotten a lot of questions on this program and what it is exactly, what the rules are, etc. So... What is 75 Hard ? It's a mental toughness skills development challenge started by Andy Frisella. (Since first posting this, it is now a book as well .) His premise is that mental toughness is a skill and therefore can be learned, practiced, and honed. Andy designed this challenge to cultivate: confidence, self-belief, self-esteem, self-worth, endurance, fortitude, grit, perseverance, self-discipline, endurance, resilience... and all of the skills inside the scope of mental toughness.  Check out the podcast that started it all for all the info from Andy himself:  https://andyfrisella.com/blogs/mfceo-project-podcast/75hard-a-75-day-tactical-guide-to-winning-the-war-with-yourself-with-andy-frisella-mfceo291  No

Paleo Smoky Grilled Pineapple Burgers

Since going Paleo my family has fallen even more in love with our grill. Paleo and grilling just work well together. The past couple of years I've even been stepping outside my grilling comfort zone more and more. Grilling things I'd never thought to have grilled before and trying new flavor combinations. I have to say I'm pretty thrilled with the results of most of my flavor experiments.  In the past I'd never have thought to grill fruit, but it's amazing. Grilling fruit and adding it to traditionally savory dishes? Brilliant. Oh yes, and? New rule: every burger recipe for the rest of forever must contain grilled pineapple. OK, maybe more of a guideline. It's a seriously delicious combination though. This Smoky Grilled Pineapple Burger is always a crowd-pleaser at my house. It's not only Paleo, but Whole30, glutenfree, lower carb, and clean eating friendly. I promise you won't miss the bun!  paleo, grilled pineapple burger, sm

Keto Paleo Friendly Coffee Creamer Recipe

Going keto paleo has me missing one thing: the organic grass-fed half-and-half I'd been having in my coffee. Since going paleo over a year ago I've searched and searched and just never found anything else I love in my coffee. I'd just about given up on a keto paleo-friendly coffee creamer ! I was almost to resign myself to black coffee forever, but then I decided to resort again to trying to make my own. This version is simple and quite delicious. Not only is it keto paleo, but Whole30 and 21 Day Sugar Detox friendly as well. Keto Paleo Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee Creamer Ingredients 1 can Organic Canned Coconut Milk (the kind in the carton just won't do it) 1 teaspoon Cinnamon Vietnamese Organic 1 teaspoon Organic Pure Vanilla  for 100% Whole30 compliant swap for vanilla powder 2 teaspoons raw local honey or Organic Maple Syrup (optional, leave out for KETO, Whole30, or 21DSD) Directions Blend all ingredients well in your blender.

Paleo Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer Recipe

It's just not the holidays for me without a Starbucks peppermint mocha (or white chocolate peppermint mocha, mmm). I generally splurge once or twice during the holiday season with the real thing. Since going keto paleo, however, I'm not sure if I will. Sometimes the sugar just isn't worth it! Problem is I like them, miss them, and would really enjoy them all season long! So..... I decided I wanted to tackle the peppermint mocha and come up with Paleo-friendly version . With this simple recipe, I can have a peppermint mocha anytime. Not only is this recipe Paleo, but it's also Whole30, gluten-free, vegan, primal, and 100% junk-free. Paleo Peppermint Mocha Recipe Ingredients: 1 can Organic Canned Coconut Milk (Regular, NOT light. Seriously, ew.) 1/3 cup Organic Cocoa Powder 2 to 3 Tablespoons Organic Grade B Maple Syrup  (Optional, leave out for keto or Whole30.) 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Organic Peppermint Extract (Depending how pepperminty you like

30 Easy Prep and Pack Whole30 Lunch Recipes

The Whole30 Program is amazing. I highly recommend it. Every time I've done a Whole 30 I have felt AMAZING by the end. It's a very empowering experience. It is not however an easy one. Mostly because the food prep can take much more time if you're used to grab and go options. A little planning ahead and you can definitely make it through the 30 days. When it comes to Whole30 lunches, 3 things worked best for me: Quick and easy salads. Prepping food on Sunday. Cooking too much at dinner and eating leftovers for lunch the next day. I thought I'd share 30 of the awesome Whole30 lunch recipes I've found from my favorite bloggers (and a few from me!). I've included all three options I listed above. Some quick and easy salads, some to prep an entire recipe on the weekend and then portion them for lunches that week, and some to be cooked for dinner and the leftovers packed for lunch the next day. Play around and see what works best for you. This list

The Killer Jillian 30-Day Workout Rotation #killerjillian

If you've visited FitViews before you have probably noticed I'm rather fond of Jillian Michaels at-home workouts. I own virtually all she has and have reviewed many on this blog. They're just good, solid workouts that give me great results.  I'm particularly fond of Jillian programs, calendars, and challenges. I've blogged through Body Revolution and BodyShred . I vlogged through the 30 Day Shred . Pretty much every Jillian challenge set forth I've delightedly owned. But I'm feeling a bit "been there done that" lately. I want a new Jillian challenge . Something fresh, something challenging, something different. Something new to motivate me and push me. So, I decided to come up with my own! I'm calling it the #KillerJillian Challenge . The #KillerJillian Before I launch into the calendar, a little disclaimer : This challenge is in no way endorsed by Jillian Michaels. It's just a for-fun workout calendar I came up with.

Paleo Peach Cobbler

  This Easy Paleo Peach Cobbler Recipe was sponsored by Puritan's Pride . When I first went paleo I was convinced I’d need to swear off desserts and baked goods forever. That was fine for my first 30 days of strict paleo. After that I found I wanted to be able to have something sweet once in a while, but without going completely non-paleo crazy. That's when I discovered paleo baking! Who knew?! Paleo baking is using paleo-friendly ingredients to mimic common baked goods like breads, cookies, pies, etc. First, I played around with the different paleo-friendly ‘flours’, sweeteners, and oils. Then, once I became comfortable with the basics, I set out to convert my favorite old family recipes to being paleo-friendly. My dad's favorite pie is peach. He loves peach pie at the holidays. Any holiday! I have yet to perfect a paleo double crust pie, but I have gotten pretty good at crisps and cobblers. This is my revamped version of old-fashioned peach cobbler…
