How to Make 2-Ingredient Keto Pancakes with Cream Cheese

Eggs are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast whether I’m following a keto diet or not, so I’m super happy that they’re one of the 2 ingredients needed to make these keto pancakes.

While many people think they’re better off limiting their egg intake due to their cholesterol and fat content, recent research has indicated that a diet including more eggs than commonly recommended can be safely enjoyed as part of a balanced and healthy diet. (1)

I’m glad more people are starting to realize all of the benefits of including eggs in their diet, as they’re an excellent source of protein, healthy fat, and they provide an abundance of vitamins and minerals.

The second ingredient used is another rather common keto staple: cream cheese. There are many recipes we’ve featured on this site that make use of cream cheese because it’s such a fantastic ingredient for keto cooking.

It tastes extremely good and it adds an absolute ton of calories from fats while keeping carbs to a minimum. It even provides a moderate amount of protein — it’s truly a quintessential keto food. Used in this particular recipe, it helps to form your pancake “batter” while increasing the fat content.

All you have to do is mix it together with your two eggs and cook the batter over a skillet. Once small bubbles begin to form on the top, carefully flip them and cook for an additional 30-60 seconds.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a simpler pancake recipe than this one. In spite of the fact these pancakes are made with only two ingredients, they turn out incredibly tasty as well.

You’ll notice the cream cheese with every bite, making this a heavenly breakfast option for fans of cream cheese. I also like to add a bit of heavy whipped cream when I make these, as it’s a yummy way to add even more fats to my morning meal.

When served with bacon and some fried eggs, you end up with a complete, well-rounded keto breakfast. Enjoy!

P.S. If you’re looking for a keto-friendly pancake recipe that’s more savory and meaty, try these addictive mini pigs in a blanket:
