Low Carb Decadence: Chocolate & Cream Cheese Omelet

By Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am — Filed under:

If your morning bacon and eggs has gotten a little too routine, here is a way to mix it up. I made myself a chocolate and cream cheese omelet on Sunday and it was divine!

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 packets of stevia
  • 1 oz. cream cheese

DirectionsChocolate Cream Cheese Omelet Nutrition from Starling Fitness

  • Put the butter in your skillet and set the flame on medium.
  • While the skillet is warming up, mix the eggs, cream, cocoa and 1 packet of stevia in a bowl. The cocoa won’t fully mix in (there will be tiny chunks of it), but that doesn’t affect the taste.
  • Once the butter is fully melted and bubbling, pour the egg mixture into the pan and put on a lid for approximately three minutes.
  • Mix the cream cheese with the other packet of stevia (you can use the same bowl that you mixed your eggs in).
  • Flatten the cream cheese mixture until it is approximately the size of half your omelet.
  • Place the cream cheese on the egg mixture and gently fold in half.
  • Cook for two minutes more or until the cream cheese is melted.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving (no one wants molten cream cheese lava burning their tongues in the morning).

I’ve found that Sweet N Low tastes better than Splenda in this recipe. Additionally, using coconut oil instead of butter makes it taste especially yummy and only adds twenty calories. I talked about it here:

    This was not chocolaty enough for me. Just tasted like an omlette with cream cheese in it.

    To get the cocoa smooth I warmed the cream for about 20 seconds then mixed the cocoa with it until mostly dissolved. Then I added the eggs to that.
