Keto Cream Cheese Blintz
THE BRUNCH BUFFET, ONE OF THE GREATEST PASSIONS OF MY LIFE. AN OLD FAVORITE WAS ALWAYS THE HUMBLE BLINTZ. I WOULD TOP MINE WITH STRAWBERRY JAM, WHIPPED CREAM AND SYRUP. I DO THAT NOW TOO! BUT AT HOME. BY MYSELF. NOT EVEN ON A SUNDAY.
8 OZ. CREAM CHEESE
4 TBS MELTED BUTTER
1 TSP VANILLA
1 TBS SWEETENER
1 C. RICOTTA CHEESE
4 OZ. CREAM CHEESE
1/2 TSP. VANILLA
2 TBS SWEETENER
This recipe for Keto cream cheese blintzes is adapted from a basic cream cheese pancake recipe. The ratios are adjusted slightly and there is no flour or baking powder. I”ve seen the recipe floating around forever and the first time I made it I thought, this pancake is too flat to be a pancake. This is a Keto crepe! They are very delicate and can be hard to flip. I’ll give you my tips ahead.
While your crepes are cooking, whip the filling together in a bowl with a hand mixer. You can use a stand mixer or even a food processor to whip all of the ingredients together. By the time the last crepe was done, the first few were cool enough to fill. This recipe will make 8 large blintzes. I took a large spoon and spread 2-3 tbs. of filling in the center of the first crepe. I folded one side over the filled center and then the adjacent side over the center. I then rolled them up like a burrito. You don’t need to fold these at all to enjoy. You can simply add the filling to the center and then roll them up! This is your food
You can do whatever you’d like with it!
A note about nutrition information. I will calculate and include nutrition information for my recipes from now on but with a huge caution. I am calculating the macros using my ingredients. I use Philly brand “5 simple ingredients” cream cheese. It has .7 grams of carbohydrate per oz. I have seen some brands of cream cheese that have 3 times that amount. That may not seem like a lot, but if you are trying to keep your carbohydrates under 20 net grams a day, a 3 carb difference can really throw you off. So I will include the macros but I always encourage everyone to calculate their own.
