After months of overindulging, January typically arrives with a slew of guilt and a waistband that is screaming for mercy. Since many people turn to a low carb lifestyle to get their sugar cravings under control and lose the extra pounds, I thought I'd devote this week to some of my favorite low carb recipes. Whenever I resort to low carb diets to lose weight, the worst meal for me is always breakfast. There are only so many eggs you can eat before you are looking for something different. These cream cheese pancakes are a welcome treat in that case. Even if you aren't watching carbs, these are also an excellent option for those who are gluten free as they contain no grains or flour of any kind. In fact the list of ingredients is incredibly short. Cream cheese, eggs, stevia powder - maybe a pinch of cinnamon. That's it. And they are super easy to make. I usually whip up a batch in my magic bullet and it takes less than a minute to make the batter. I made this batch with low fat cream cheese to keep the calories down but if you are on a strict low carb diet (like Atkins) you can go with the full fat cream cheese.
