Giraffe’s Flourless Cinnamon Pancakes
Good morning all! It’s time for breakfast…..or a midnight snack, depending on where you live. We haven’t eaten pancakes for some time because of the high carb count. However, we recently discovered a recipe for flourless pancakes. Not only do they look like your typical pancakes, But, they smell and taste fabulous!!
There are only a few ingredients involved and they are:
- 1 8 oz. Cream Cheese
- 1 Cup Baking Splenda
- 6 Eggs
- 3 Tbsp. Cinnamon
- 3 tsp. Vanilla
- 2 tsp. Baking Powder
We start by placing our cream cheese in a medium-sized mixing bowl and then placing it in the microwave for a minute. Since our cream cheese is not at room temperature, we’ll place it in the microwave for a minute. That will allow the cheese to mix a little more easily with the remaining ingredients.
Next, we’ll add our eggs and will mix them with our cream cheese.
Our cinnamon is the next ingredient to add to the mixture. If cinnamon is not your favorite, you can either decrease the amount added or even substitute another flavor. In the past, we have added or even substituted Cocoa for cinnamon and changed the recipe to chocolate pancakes. Any flavor is possible.
We’ll then add our baking powder. When I started making these, the recipe called for 1 tsp. of baking powder. Well, the pancakes were completely flat…..flat as a pancake. So, I added a few more teaspoons. BINGO! That made all the difference and fluffed them up a bit. I even added a few more this morning, because they weren’t to our liking. And not to worry, the taste remained the same.
Finally, we’ll add our vanilla.
Now, mix all the ingredients together and it’s time to begin the frying process.
Next, we’ll spray our medium-sized skillet with cooking spray and place on the stove on medium heat. Once the skillet begins to slightly smoke, it’s time to pour or spoon our batter. I like to pour a certain amount of batter into the skillet, so that I still have a border around the pancake, allowing me room to flip.
As the bubbles begin to slow and the bottom of the pancakes start to slightly smoke, now is the perfect time to flip.
Allow the pancake to rise and then after about a minute, the pancake should be ready. Continue making your pancakes until you’ve used all the batter. You now have your stack of pancakes and you are ready to eat!
YUUUUUMY!!! These pancakes are scrumptious and just plain delicious!! Enjoy!
