My Sweet Omelette (flourless pancake)

A “Sweet Omelette” sounds weird, right?! But think of it like a gigantic fluffy flourless pancake. Yep. 

“Sweet Omelettes” are the most under-rated thing, ever. I’ve seen a few recipes for these floating about, but their creators been SERIOUSLY underplaying how tasty, easy and healthy they are. Sooo good and you only need 3 ingredients to make my sweet omelette.

Also, because you beat the egg white until it really foams up, the mix goes sooooo far! You get a lot of food for one little egg. 

Hopefully I’ve now got you intrigued… want to know how to make them? Easy peasy recipe below! And here’s all I used…

You can have loads of fun with this recipe! 2 of my other fav toppings are:

  1. PB and JAM. Make the omelette as per the instructions and then spoon on some PB and Jam on top. Fold the omelette in half in the frying pan and let them melt for 20-30 secs. Heaven.
  2. CHOCOLATE ORANGE. Like this picture!! I divided the egg mix into two and stirred in a tbsp of Sweet Freedom Choc Orange sauce to one half. I then added a dollops of each to the pan, to build up a marble effect & cooked as normal! Here’s the insta link with a few more instructions.

My Sweet Omelette

Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time5 minutes
Servings: 1 person
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: english
Keyword: gluten free breakfast, gluten free pancakes, omelette


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp sweetener/sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon - don't have to use this but it tastes really good if you've got an extra sweet tooth like me

Optional Toppings: this is what I went for…

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp Alpro plain yoghurt
  • 1/2 banana
  • A few raspberries
  • Handful of mixed nuts, warmed in a pan with a tsp of maple syrup


  • Separate the egg white and yolk into two bowls.
  • Whisk the egg white until it forms soft peaks (takes approx 1 min with an electric whisk on full power).
    You’re looking for it to be white and frothy, and hold its shape a little when you whisk it, like my picture. Don’t worry too much about under/over doing it…it'll still be yummy regardless!!
  • Add the sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon to the yolk and mix together.
  • Pour the yolk into the white and whisk until combined (approx 15 seconds).
  • Heat a frying pan to a medium temperature (mine is 7/9). Spray with frylight.
  • Pour in the mix and tilt the pan around so it forms a large circle – like you would with a regular omelette or a gigantic pancake.
    If your egg white was extra fluffy, you might want to use a spatula to help you quickly spread the mixture around the pan.
  • Leave to cook for approx 2-3 mins, or until bubbles have formed on the surface and it’s easy to lift from the pan.
  • Flip and cook for another 1 min, until brown.
    If you’re feeling nervous about flipping it, stick it under the grill to cook the top instead.
  • Add your toppings, fold over & eat!


Tip – if you’re adding peanut butter to the top, warm it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds so it goes runny and you can pour it all over the omelette.
