    I found an old recipe, and I tried it today:
    2 eggs
    2 oz. cream cheese
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. b.powder
    your choice of sweetener
    Mix all together, let sit 5 min., then you can either make 3 or 4 pancakes or 1 large omelet like pancake, which is what I did, then add a little butter and fav. syrup.
    it was very satisfying as I love pancakes in the morning :)
    2.5 net carbs, 17 protein

    For pancakes I mash a banana and add an egg and cinnamon - and it makes really tasty pancakes. Not had it recently though but just thought I'd share the recipe. I think if I wanted it really sweet I'd add Agave syrup which has a low GI and is sweeter than sugar so you'd get away with using less. It's also quite runny. Then add cream :) but I've only just been diagnosed so I'm trying to steer clear of all sweet things at the moment until I can work out how it all impacts me :)
