Low Carb and Low Calorie Pancakes - no need to hold back
If we could eat pancakes every day we would. The smell of pancakes cooking is one of the only reasons to get out of bed on the weekend, they fill you up, make everyone happy and start your day off with a bang.
Being naturally low in calories (and virtually carb-free), Lo-Dough makes the perfect gluten free, low carb pancake: Perfect for anyone following a keto/LCHF/paleo meal plan.
The thing we love most about the Ketogenic/LCHF diet is the ability to enjoy and indulge in fats such as butter, cream, eggs and coconut oil. We revelled in creating this recipe using Skinny Syrup to keep the sugar content as low as possible but added lots of delicious cream to tantalise the taste buds.
Carb Note: When shared between two people, we're looking at a total carb count of 6.5g per person. However, if you're feeling mega hungry and can't bear to share, then this recipe will take your total carb count to 13g: Well within the recommended daily amount to hit ketosis.
If however, you would like to reduce this from 13g to 8g simply remove the mixed berries from the equation.
- 3 eggs 30g mascarpone 50ml coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp vanilla skinny syrup

What you'll need
This diet-friendly recipe is possible with:
- To make the batter beat the eggs, vanilla extract, vanilla skinny syrup, mascarpone and coconut milk until smooth.
Lo-Doughin the mixture and refrigerate for 20 (if you’re short on time) - 60 minutes. For best results, we would highly recommend at least one hour as this allows the Lo-Doughto really soak up the mixture for the best (and indeed tastiest) effect.

- Preheat a frying pan on medium to high heat. Once heated, add one tbsp organic coconut oil until melted and hot.
Lo-Doughout of the fridge (taking care not drip the batter mix all over your lovely kitchen!) and fry in the coconut oil for 2-3 minutes on each side until the Lo-Doughhas taken on a deeper brown/toasted colour.
- Once browned off, layer the pancakes on top of one another in a stack and spoon the maple syrup sauce all over your pancakes.
- Take the whipped cream and spoon over the top.
- Top with berries and pistachio crumb, and resist the compulsive need to share immediately on social media (we dare you!).
