Have you tried a dessert omelet? This recipe needs just three ingredients and it really doesn’t take long to make. And because it is so low in carbs if you DID happen to eat it all by yourself (if you were recipe creating, for example, just saying, who would do that though?) it wouldn’t blow your diet at all! Luckily. Ahem.

Separate three eggs and beat the yolks with a fork in a small bowl with some granulated Splenda. If you’re not keen on Splenda then Confectioner’s Style Swerve would be a good alternative, but you would need to recalculate the nutritional data as it is higher in carbs (but still not too bad!).

In a stand mixer, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Slowly fold in the egg yolk mixture.Low Carb Dessert Omelet - light and fluffy sugar free dessert for just 1.6g net carbs per serving

Melt some butter in a skillet and pour in the egg mixture. Cook on a low heat for 5-7 minutes or until the bottom has set.Low Carb Dessert Omelet - light and fluffy sugar free dessert for just 1.6g net carbs per serving

Place the skillet under a preheated broiler and continue to cook until the top has set, around 3-4 minutes.

Fold over the omelet, divide into two servings and transfer to two plates. Garnish with extra sweetener. Fresh berries like strawberries, blueberries and/or raspberries work well with this omelet, as do low carb ice cream or whipped cream!

  1. This looks delicious!! Too bad I just used up all my fresh berries! Will have to get more and try this – I bet my picky 7 year old daughter would love it as well!

  2. I love this idea, Georgina. I haven’t made a dessert omelette in at least 25 years. I think the last time I made one was while watching The Frugal Gourmet make an apple omelette. I think yours is better, though. 🙂
