Tired of eggs and bacon for breakfast?  If so then you need to make these pancakes!  I've made PANCAKES before but they were just basic ole pancakes.  Now these pancakes, these pancakes pictured above are quite special.  The tang of the lemon and blackberry together is just oh so good.  If you don't have fresh blackberries (I have tons growing in my backyard) then you could make them with any berry, just adjust the carb counts accordingly.  I used lemon extract because I get a little forgetful and didn't realize I had some fresh lemons sitting right on my counter when I started pulling out ingredients.  I think this would be even better if I had used lemon zest instead of lemon extract.  Quite fabulous just the way it's written though.  I've tried them plain and with Sugar Free Torani Vanilla syrup poured on top.  Both ways were fabulous.  These would be amazing with some BETTER THAN COOL WHIP WHIPPED CREAM

1 serving
6 net carbs per serving

3oz block cream cheese; softened in microwave
2 eggs
2 TBSP ground golden flax meal
1 tsp lemon extract (this was very lemon-y so reduce if you want milder)
1 tsp Splenda
1/4 cup fresh blackberries

Beat all ingredients except blackberries with mixer on medium until batter is smooth and fluffy.  Add blackberries and mix on low until lightly chopped and mixed in with batter.  Pour onto a greased skillet pre-heated to medium.  Flip when underside is turning brown.  I made 2 large pancakes but I recommend 3 smaller ones for flipping ease.
