As is likely with most people, doing without it in a common way triggers an even greater desire in me. If you don’t have a bathtub, you think about bathing far more often than you would if you had one. If you are not allowed to eat sugar, you suddenly turn into a sweet tooth and think of any chocolate that would be really delicious now. At least that’s how I feel. And above all with pancakes. I think I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve even ordered pancakes for breakfast in a café. But lately, since I have to do without carbohydrates and can’t eat pancakes, the delicious flatbreads have been laughing at me so seductively that I can only resist with great effort.

Pancakes without any flour

That’s why I finally made a variation of pancakes for breakfast that does not contain any grains and is therefore in line with my current diet. Just like normal pancakes, they are super quick to prepare and look good on the breakfast table on Sunday mornings and are a welcome alternative to scrambled eggs and the like for low-carb breakfasters.

Whether sweet or savory

The basis of the pancakes in our recipe is cream cheese and eggs, which is why their taste is more reminiscent of an omelette than pancakes. But in terms of consistency, they come very close and can be wonderfully hearty or sweet topped with berries or nut butter.
