Low Carb Mug Pancake

I made a Low Carb Mug Pancake for breakfast this morning and I can't wait to share the recipe with you.

I was set for a busy morning and a long to-do list as I walked into the kitchen wanting pancakes.  My husband had left for work early and I really didn't feel like dragging out the griddle for just me, myself and I.

But I really, really wanted a puffy pancake.  The thought occurred to me that I've microwaved low carb bread and English muffins (on Low Carb Joy) before so why shouldn't I give pancakes a try?

I looked over my 'Low Carb Pancakes for 1' recipe and changed up the ingredients a bit and whipped up a batter.

To my amazement 1 minute later I sat down to a warm low carb mug pancake.

Here's what I did:

Dry ingredients for Low Carb Mug Pancake.

I gathered my ingredients and sprayed a 12 oz. ramekin with cooking spray.

Stir together dry ingredients for Low Carb Mug Pancake.

I stirred together the dry ingredients in a small bowl.  They don't look like enough to turn into a pancake, but trust me it does.

I then dumped in the liquid ingredients and stirred until it was smooth and there were no lumps. (A fork might be better than a spoon for this.)

Batter should be smooth for Low Carb Mug Pancake

I poured it into the prepped ramekin and popped it for 1 minute in the microwave.

While the pancake was in the microwave, I got pretty excited as it puffed up to the top of the ramekin. But the minute I opened the door, it fell. I admit to some concern at that point.

But it's all good, no worries.  It was just right.  The pancake was moist and fluffy and most amazingly tasted very much like a PANCAKE and was quite satisfying.  This was so good with a little of my low carb Golden Syrup and butter. TA-DA!

I'm going to make up a bunch of little zip bags with the dry ingredients in them and have them ready to grab out of the pantry for a quick-to-make breakfast. =)

Make ahead a few single servings of the Low Carb Mug Pancake Mix.

Next Day:  I made it for my husband the next morning and he loved it!  So I'm putting together a few zip bags of single serving Low Carb Mug Pancake Mix!

Oh and you are going to love the fact that each pancake has 2.9 total carbs or 1.6 net carbs. - Enjoy!
