This is a recipe from Curbingcarbs. It is a pretty good alternative to the real thing for those of us on a low carb diet. The texture is almost perfect.


  1. Mix together all the ingredients with a whisk. Batter should be a bit runny.
  2. Cook in a lightly greased skillet as you would any pancake recipe.
  3. Drop batter on surface in large spoonfulls.
  4. Cook until each side is lightly browned.
  5. Serve with butter and low carb store bought syrup.

Very close to the real thing. The texture was great and the cottage cheese gave it a similar flavor to that of a buttermilk pancake. The only additions I made were some cinnamon and a little stevia to sweeten them a bit. These cook a bit longer than regular pancakes, about 6 plus minutes per side until their well browned, otherwise the flax is gummy in the middle. Next time I'm going to try a 50/50 nut meal and flax meal mix and see if they cook a little faster and for the nutty flavor.

These came out wonderful! I also added some cinnamon, ginger, and splenda. Like the previous reviewer notes, you need to cook them a bit longer 5-6 mins on each side. Also note that the recipe makes 6 small pancakes - more like the stacking kind.
