Cheesecake Pancakes or Waffles (S) February 28 2015

For those of you looking for a great "S" style pancake or waffle recipe this one is terrific and comes highly recommended from a friend and fellow Trim Healthy Mama.  I have always eaten the "E" pancakes from the book and love them but these are such a great option as then I can add bacon and eggs for a big weekend family breakfast - I have kind of missed that with my "E" pancakes!  You can top these pancakes with your favorite toppings like sugar fee syrup or whip cream and berries.

Cheesecake Pancakes/Waffles (S)

1 -8 oz. brick Cream Cheese, full fat, softened

3 eggs, room temperature

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1/4 C Trim Healthy Mama Whey Powder (or other on plan protein powder)

2 Tbsp coconut flour

1 Tbsp Trim Healthy Mama Sweet Blend or other on plan sweetener of your choice (see conversion guide)

1 tsp baking powder

Coconut oil for cooking (or other oil of your choosing)

Cream the softened cream cheese with an electric hand blender. Add eggs, one at a time, until each is incorporated into the cream cheese. Add vanilla, mix, then add dry ingredients, mixing until well blended. Ladle onto griddle or pan, heated to a medium temperature, by a scant 1/4 C each pancake, (1/2 cup if waffles) spreading the batter out a bit after pouring. Flip when the edges start looking less glossy. When done, serve with your choice of toppings. Makes 16 small to medium pancakes Or 4 waffles.
