- 2 tsp Psyllium Husk Powder

- 1 Tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit (natural sweetener)
- 120 g Cream Cheese (full fat)
- Separate the eggs whites from yolk into 2 different bowls.
- Add the cream cheese, Lakanto Monkfruit and Psyllium Husk Powder into the bowl containing the egg yolks. Mix well together with a hand mixer until you get a smooth and creamy texture.
- Let the mixture to sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the psyllium husk powder to thicken the eggs. The longer you let it sit, the better it will come out thicker.

- Pour the whipped eggs whites in with the other mixture and use a spatula to fold. Be sure to fold the ingredients together and not over-mix (important). This will determine whether your pancakes come out fluffy or not.
- Heat up a large skillet on low heat and coat with cooking spray (or butter if you prefer).
- Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet and allow to cook for about 4-5 minutes (on low heat) then flip with a spatula and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Repeat this process for each pancake.
