Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or sugar free vanilla syrup
  • 2 teaspoons sugar substitute, or more to taste
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • almond milk or half and half as needed

Cinnamon Swirl

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar substitute
  • 1 tablespoon sugar free maple syrup, or additional sweetener
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg (optional)

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or sugar free vanilla syrup
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • heavy cream or half and half as needed
  • sweetener to taste

Instructions

Cream Cheese Topping

  1. Mix ingredients in a small bowl until well combined, adding liquid as needed to thin. Ideally, you want something thin enough to pour. Set aside.

Cinnamon Swirl

  1. Add ingredients to a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sweetener (if granulated) is dissolved, and ingredients are well combined. Turn off the heat and set aside. (Alternatively, use a microwave.)

Pancake Batter

  1. Combine softened cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, sugar substitute, and cinnamon using a blender or mixer.
  2. Add coconut flour, baking powder, and cinnamon, blending again until very well combined.
  3. NOTE: Batter may thicken if left to sit for more than a few minutes. If this occurs, add almond milk or half and half as needed to thin it.

Making the pancakes

  1. Pour circles of batter about 4 inches in diameter onto an electric griddle set to 325F or a greased pan over medium heat.
  2. When the top begins to bubble, drizzle a spiral of the cinnamon swirl mixture over the surface of the pancake. Using a spoon or knife, swirl the cinnamon into the pancake.
  3. Flip pancakes when edges begin to harden and bottom is golden brown.
  4. NOTE: Wipe the pan between batches to prevent burning.

Serving

  1. Reheat cream cheese frosting if needed. Serve pancakes swirl side up, with cream cheese and remaining cinnamon swirl mixture drizzled on top.
