  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal or almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream, almond milk or water


  • Cover the cream cheese in a microwaveable container and soften in the microwave for approximately 15-25 seconds. Alternatively sit the cream cheese in a container in boiling water to soften it or beat it if you need to.
  • Mix the almond meal into the cream cheese and then beat in the egg. Add approximately 2 tablespoons cream or water to the mix and let stand for a few minutes.
  • Heat a frying pan on the stove top on medium heat. Once hot, add a dob of butter and let it melt and bubble before adding a heaped tablespoon of pancake mix.
  • Allow the pancake to cook completely on one side before trying to flip it. You will have problems flipping it if it is not cooked properly. If the pancake is too brown, turn the heat down slightly.
  • Allow to cook on the other side before removing from the pan. Repeat the procedure with a dob of butter before adding more batter to the frying pan.


  • Add 1/2 tspn cinnamon to the pancake mix for cinnamon pancakes.
