- Prepare Your Ingredients:
Before you begin, make sure your cream cheese is softened. You can soften it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds if needed.
- Blend the Batter:
In a blender, combine the eggs, softened cream cheese, almond flour, baking powder, vanilla extract (if using), and a pinch of salt. Blend until you have a smooth, lump-free batter. This should only take a minute or two.
- Preheat Your Pan:
Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. You can lightly grease it with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
- Cook the Pancakes:
Pour a small amount of the pancake batter onto the hot griddle. Use about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. You can adjust the size to your preference.
- Cook Until Bubbles Form:
Let the pancake cook until you see small bubbles forming on the surface, which typically takes 2-3 minutes. This is a sign that the pancake is ready to flip.
- Flip and Cook the Other Side:
Carefully flip the pancake with a spatula and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes, or until it’s golden brown and cooked through.
Continue this process until you’ve used all the batter, adding a bit more cooking spray or butter to the pan as needed.
- Serve and Enjoy:

- Add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter for a hint of spice.
