This dreamy breakfast is an awesome low carb way to start the day!

Scotch pancakes, bacon and syrup. Doesn't sound like it's gonna be low-carb, does it? Well, by using blitzed Lo-dough as your flour replacement and swapping out the standard maple syrup for an ultra low-sugar fibre syrup, you can have this delicious breakfast on a low carb or keto diet - with the dish coming in at just 7g of carbs. 

For those counting calories, this one comes in at an insanely reasonable 360 kcal - even with the bacon - but you can half the bacon amount quite easily!!

Note - for this recipe you will need a non-stick pan. 


Serves 1
  • 1 piece of Lo-Dough, blitzed to fine crumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 50ml of milk (or an extra egg if preferred)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of erythritol sweetener (or any other sweetener of your choice)
  • 20 sprays of spray oil (or if on a keto diet - use butter)
  • 6 thin rashers of bacon
  • 40ml-60ml of your favourite skinny syrup

  1. Place your bacon under the grill and cook until crisp.
  2. In a bowl, mix the Lo-Dough, beaten egg, sweetener and milk thoroughly. You should have a thick, nearly cake like batter. You can blend for a smoother mix if desired.
  3. Heat up a large frying pan (on a low heat) and spray approx. 10 times with the oil (or melt some butter). Add four goods spoons of the mix into the pan to create 4 pancakes.
  4. Once ready to turn, lift each pancake with a spatula and before flipping over, quickly add another couple of sprays of oil to the bit of the pan where it came from.
  5. Once ready, serve with the crispy bacon and syrup.

For extra luxury and fats for keto, you can serve with a knob of butter melted over the top.
