Petite Pancakes

Hello my favorite breakfast! I have definitely strayed away from pancakes for over a year now. My grandma had this recipe she would make us every Saturday morning that we would stay at her house. Let me tell you...DELICIOUS! sometimes, she'd make her own syrup with a honey base and it was just so good. I miss those...

Enough nostalgia, I decided to look online for some pancake recipes. But there was a catch, I don't eat flour. Yeah, white flour is the MAIN ingredient in nearly ALL pancake batters. Except this one, I found this recipe here. Also, I should add this lady has AMAZING recipes and much better pictures than me! haha. 

This definitely took over and hour to create about 2 batches and make about 10 pancakes. It should never take you this long, unless you're half asleep at 8 am, and STARVING and maybe you'll mess up enough times to make it to my record of 1 hour=10 pancakes. 

2 oz cream cheese (I used non-fat, any works)
3 packets of Truvia
1/2 tsp. dark ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
pancake syrup, if desired

Yields ~ 5 petite pancakes

Directions: Preheat your pancake griddle to medium heat. I don't have a cool griddle for the stove top (Christmas gift?) so I use my George Foreman counter top griddle attachment. College student problems.... ;)
 Meanwhile, mix together all ingredients (except syrup) in a blender. DONE! haha, just kidding.
Here's what the batter will look like after its all blended together. Makes about 3/4 c. of batter!
Like I said, up top... 1 hour. So I decided to use little circle molds because I was 100% incapable of making circles on my own. 
I should warn you, these pancakes are petite and thin! So watch them carefully so they don't burn!
 Then scoop out about 1/4 c. of batter onto heated and greased griddle and wait until bubbles appear (about 1 minute/side).

This time last year my hands were making Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
