calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 2 oz Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 1/4 cup Almond Meal Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Whole Grain Soy Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 3 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1/3 cup Large or Small Curd Creamed Cottage Cheese


Top these naturally keto and low carb almond flour pancakes with almond butter, sugar-free syrup, or toasted almonds, if desired.
  1. Mix the protein powder (1oz is about 4 Tbsp), almond meal, soy flour and baking powder together. Whisk the eggs, then blend together with the cottage cheese (substitute cream cheese if cottage cheese is not on your accepted foods list). 
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease with butter or canola oil. 
  3. Using about 1/4 cup per pancake, drop batter onto the skillet. When bubbles begin to form in the middle of each pancake, turn over and cook another 2 minutes or until firm. 
  4. Repeat, keeping pancakes warm in the oven.

Cooking Tip

Add blueberries to the batter to add a fruit serving to this low carb breakfast or post workout meal (just pay attention to net carbs whenever you add ingredients).

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
