Low Carb Pancake
Yum. A low carb pancake, right? Just try it. You’ll like it, I promise. At least if you’re on Phase I or Phase II of the South Beach Diet you will. It smells so good when you’re frying it up and does pretty darn well at kicking back those feelings of deprivation. I mix up a double batch of this and keep it handy for an easy breakfast.
3 egg whites
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
dash of cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
sweetener (optional – Splenda or some DiVinci Syrup — not a lot, and omit the vanilla)
Blend eggs until frothy. Add ricotta, blend again. Add cinnamon and vanilla. Add sweetener, if desired. Use this batter just as you would pancake batter. It took me a few tries to get these where I wanted them. I made them crepe fashion, with a thin pour of batter and the circular motion of the pan. Top with a little SF syrup and some crushed walnuts. Very drool worthy.
