{Trim Healthy Mama} Emily's S Pancakes.

I told you yesterday we're pancakes connoisseurs in this house.

And on an unrelated note, I've gained more than a handful pounds since Michael came into my life.

But thankfully, there's Trim Healthy Mama, and I know I keep promising a review and a giveaway, and that is COMING THIS WEEK, I promise.

It's recipes like this one that keep me focused and fat-burning while Michael's cooking Cinnamon Roll Pancakes... I make these pancakes invented by my friend Emily, and I can withstand the Cinnamon Roll Pancake temptation and we all live happily ever after. And they're actually really tasty.

The whole premise of the THM book is that you alternate S and E meals, something I'll tell you more about later... and I'll be honest: I don't like E breakfasts. And it's all because coffee without cream makes life miserable and devoid of meaning, and I can't do it, I just can't. I'll do my E meals another time, but NOT at breakfast. Creamy coffee is THAT important.

These are super easy, tasty, AND... you can put butter on top, because they're S. Win-win.

Emily's Trim Healthy Mama S Pancakes
2 eggs
1/2 cup ricotta cheese (Edited to say that I now use cottage cheese almost exclusively... so much easier to find and buy in bulk)
1/4 cup flax meal
1 T coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Whisk all ingredients together. Ladle onto 350* griddle and brown. When edges become dry, flip and brown the other side. Serve with butter and sugar-free, low-carb topping of your choice. Serves 2.

Thank you so much for this! I just started THM and feel EXACTLY the same way as you about E breakfasts, simply because of the coffee/cream issue! I'm so excited to see an S pancake recipe and I can't wait to try! Thanks for sharing~!

That's funny! Breakfast is my favorite way to do E meals because we love oatmeal...I'm eating oatmeal right now. Ha! :-)
Thanks for linking up!

I'm so glad you mention your love for coffee and cream during breakfast. I have yet been able to buy the book, but what is our option for coffee creamer. I am addicted to French vanilla with I know has to be a giant no bueno :(

Totally feel the same way about my coffee with cream!! This morning I made the peppermint mocha creamer, I think it's from the THM facebook coffee files... 1c cream, 3 Tb cocoa, sweeten to taste (4 shakes of my tiny stevia jar). Heat until you can see the steam coming off the cream, pull from heat and add 1tsp peppermint extract. You could skip that part and still be so happy! =)

Dear Miss Melissa, These Pancakes are wonderful. Today I had a brainstorm. Made a muffin in a mug with 1 1/2 T ground coconut and 1 1/2 T Flax seed ground and added Maple flavoring. Topped it with 2T cream cheese, 1T butter, 1/2t Maple flavoring, and THM sweet blend ground about a 1/2 t and topped it with little about 1/2 in peaces of bacon. It was excellent. Think this topping might be good on these pancakes? You said you liked bacon. God bless you and yours. Susan
