This recipe is here, not because it's a breakfast item. It's actually here because of a few requests for "kid-friendly" meals. I don't have any children, which makes that mission a bit tough. However, I WAS a kid at one point in time, and I know what I was fed and what I ate.
A favorite "dinner" was always served ... upside-down!
Obviously, it's a pancake recipe, and would be absolutely delightful at the beginning of your day. It would also serve very well as a dinner! When I was a kid, a favorite way to eat this was with milk and sugar, rather than the typical maple syrup. I'd suggest perhaps some almond milk and some powdered erythritol, instead! Or, with some butter and jam! Or, powdered erythritol and lemon! Or, sugar-free syrup and berries!
Many ways you could go with these things. So, I will provide the basic recipe.
Interestingly, this recipe has a somewhat mysterious origin. When I very first started losing weight and it became noticeable to friends and family, they all suggested I build a website, or write a book. A few months into this thing, I did just that! This was one of the recipes on that feeble site. It only every achieved 4 recipes, and then I stopped. Too busy and ... too much work.
This was one of those 4 recipes. I don't remember where I got it. I MAY have even made it up with all the stuff I'd been purchasing at the time ... no clue. However, when I decided to make pancakes for kids, I looked it up gave it a whirl. Not too shabby! For a "diet" pancake, it was EXCELLENT! Highly recommended!
Note: Recipe makes 6 "DJ-Sized" pancakes, 12 standard ones, or 24 "silver dollar".

In a blender, on the lowest setting, blend the eggs, cream and ricotta cheese.
In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
Fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients.
Let the batter sit for 3 minutes, while the flax absorbs the liquid and the batter thickens.
Pre-heat a large skillet, grill-pan-flat-top, or non-stick sauté pan over medium-low heat.
Add a cube of your butter and swirl it around the pan.
Pour circles in the pan (or make just one large pancake, like I like to do).
Flip the pancakes when they are golden brown on one side.
When both sides are cooked, serve hot!
