Blintzlets Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Blintzlets which belongs to the Eggs and Dairy recipe category.
- 1 cup (225 g) 4% or 2% cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons (30 g) sour cream
- teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon (1.5 g) Splenda
- 4 eggs
- cup (30 g) vanilla whey protein powder
- 6 tablespoons (90 ml) low-sugar strawberry preserves
Put the cottage cheese, sour cream, vanilla, and Splenda in your food processor with the S-blade in place.
Process until smooth.
Put the eggs and the protein powder in a blender and whirl for 20 seconds or so.
Heat an 8- or 9-inch (20- or 25-cm) nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Make sure it's hot before you cook! Even though it's nonstick, spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
Now, pour in a small puddle of the egg mixture and swirl the pan to coat the whole bottom?the idea is to use just enough of the egg mixture to cover the bottom of the skillet with a thin but solid layer.
Cook until the top of the egg is set?this takes only a minute or so?and then turn briefly.
The protein powder makes this mixture very fragile, so be careful.
Lay the thin, eggy pancake on a plate, spread 1 tablespoon of the preserves on one half, and spoon 3 tablespoons of the cottage cheese mixture over it.
Fold and serve.
Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Each with 9 grams of carbohydrates and 11 grams of protein. You can cut the carb count of each serving 3 grams by using just tablespoon of preserves in each one. Or you could thaw cup (150 g) of frozen unsweetened strawberries, mash them with a tablespoon or two of Splenda, and use them in place of the preserves. This would save 5 grams of carbs per serving. Frittatas The frittata is the Italian version of the omelet, and it involves no folding! If you're still intimidated by omelets, try a frittata.
