Grain-Free Cream Cheese Pancakes

The fourth and final installment in my series of pancake recipes this week, these are a tasty option for those of you who eat cultured dairy. The cream cheese gives them a wonderfully rich, creamy, and decadent texture, as well as plenty of healthy dairy fat to keep you full throughout the morning.

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 eggs
1 tbsp coconut flour
Dash cinnamon
Splash vanilla
Oil for cooking

Blend together all of the ingredients except the cooking oil. (I used a hand blender.) Heat up your skillet, add cooking oil (I opted for coconut), and then drop your batter onto the hot skillet, spreading with the back of your spoon into pancake-like shapes. This recipe makes four pancakes, enough for two side-dishes or one main dish. (I ate my pancakes as a sweet accompaniment to two soft-boiled eggs.) They are delicious with fruit or maple syrup.

    These look delicious. Would it be possible to make them with regular all-purpose flour?

      I have no idea. We do not have any grains in our house for health reasons. I do know that coconut flour soaks up a bit more moisture than all-purpose, so if you want to try it you might need to experiment with the amount in order to get your desired consistency.
