One word, PANCAKES! Always kind of big and always kind of high in carbs. We change that today with these Low Carb Protein Pancake Bites! Delicious, less than 2 net carbs, and super easy to make.
All you need for these is a mixing bowl, a few ingredients, and a muffin pan.
Add into a large bowl 2 large eggs, 1 large egg white, 2 tablespoons of almond flour, 4 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 scoop of protein powder (I like vanilla for this one), 1-2 tablespoons of a keto free sweetener like erythritol, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 1/2 ounces of heavy cream, 3 ounces of cream cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
Mix all those up until smooth.
Take out a muffin pan and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. You can use a regular or mini muffin pan depending how big or small you want your low carb pancake bites to be!
Evenly distribute your mix into your pan(s), I usually fill mine around 3/4 of the way up.
Protein Pancake Bite Tips
Think outside the box and you can easily change these up whenever you get bored! Some of my favorite ways?
- Adding things to the top of my pancake bites like chocolate chips or nuts.
- Mixing things inside my pancake bites like sugar free candy or syrups.
- Using different flavor protein powders.
Can you tell I have a sweet tooth yet?
Put them in the oven on 350F/176C for around 10-15 minutes. Depending on how big or small you made them, they may take more or less time than this.
These low carb protein pancake bites have the texture of a fluffy buttermilk pancake with the macros that make them guilt-free!
Seriously, they’re delicious, super addicting, and you get a ton of them!
