I was really looking forward to taking part in this blog-fest; posting my recipe with pictures and all, but life has been a wee bit tricky over the last few days. So here's my rather lame attempt at joining in on the fun.
Low Carb Pancakes
(You may want to double this recipe if you're making it for more than two people)
What you need:
1/2 cup cottage cheese - I use 4% fat (carb factor = 0.04)
1/8 cup whole wheat flour (cf = .725)
(you can use all-purpose if you want)
1 tbsp sugar (cf= .998)
Of course, you can add all sorts of other stuff to the batter, which will change the carb factor. Some of our favourites are cinnamon, mashed up banana, blueberries, and (gasp) chocolate chips. Just not all at the same time... unless you're weird like that.
Approx. carb factor = .12
*Throw all ingredients in a blender, or use a hand blender and mix.
*Cook in a pan, or on a griddle just like you would any other pancake.
Edited to Add: A comment on this post reminded me that not everybody uses carb factors (or knows what they are). If you haven't heard of them and are interested, I wrote a post about it awhile back... you can find it here.
