Fluffy Keto Pancakes

keto pancakes

These keto pancakes will become your next breakfast staple. They’re healthier than regular pancakes made with white flour and sugar.

You already know that regular pancakes are forbidden on the ketogenic diet. A typical pancake has nearly 30 grams of total carbs per serving. Easy way to knock you out of ketosis, right?

That is why today, I’m going to share with you this better alternative. My low-carb pancakes have just the right amount of sweetness. The best part is that they’re fluffy. Your kids and the whole family might also love them.

Feel free to top them with butter, berries, or sugar-free maple syrup. It’s also fine to eat them plain!

How to Make Fluffy Keto Pancakes

Start by preparing the ingredients you’ll need. This recipe calls for nine ingredients which include eggs, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, stevia, salt, butter, and cream cheese.

You’ll also need the following tools:

  • A nonstick pan
  • Mixing bowls (I used regular bowls here)
  • Plastic or wire whisk

Mix the wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately. For the wet ingredients, mix together the melted butter, eggs, and cream cheese in a bowl. For the dry ingredients, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, stevia, and salt.

Next, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Whisk properly using one direction across the bowl. Once you get an even mixture that’s not too dry or watery, scoop a small amount of the mixture into a preheated pan (oiled with coconut oil or butter).

Cover the pan for 1-2 minutes. When you see bubbles starting to form on the surface of the pancake batter, flip it over and cover for another 1-2 minutes. Transfer the pancake to a plate.

Repeat the same process with the remaining pancake mixture.

Here are more details about each ingredient for making fluffy keto pancakes:

  • Eggs – The eggs will add structure and richness to your keto pancakes. They’re also full of micronutrients, protein, and fat.
  • Almond flour – Almond flour is a great alternative to regular flour. It’s paleo-friendly. You can easily replace wheat flour with almond flour at a 1:1 ratio.
  • Coconut flour – Coconut flour is also paleo-friendly. Another thing to take note of is that this flour is highly absorbent. I recommend adding a bit of water to the pancake batter if it becomes too thick.
  • Baking powder – Baking powder is responsible for making pancakes light and fluffy. You’ll need just a small amount (1 teaspoon) for this recipe.
  • Xanthan gum – This is a keto-friendly ingredient that thickens and stabilizes your recipe. According to some studies, xanthan gum may help reduce blood glucose levels.
  • Stevia – A healthy alternative to regular sugar, stevia has no carbohydrates and calories. Add it to any recipe for sweetness.
  • Salt – Salt will not make your keto pancakes salty. Rather, it brings out a recipe’s flavor and also improves its texture.
  • Butter – Aside from its high fat content, which you need on a keto diet, butter makes your pancakes richer in flavor.
  • Cream cheese – This adds flavor to your pancakes. It’s also high in fat and contains vitamins such as A and K.

Enjoy your keto panckaes! Feel free to top them with a keto-friendly fruit or syrup. Keep in mind that you can create smaller or bigger pancakes. Just adjust the amount of mixture you add to the pan.

Fluffy Keto Pancakes FAQs

1. How will I store these keto pancakes to keep them fresh? It’s simple. Transfer the pancakes into an airtight container and keep them in the fridge. They should last up to 3 days.

2. How will I reheat these pancakes? Transfer the pancake to a preheated pan and cover for 1 minute. Flip it over to the other side then cover again.

3. What can I serve with keto pancakes? Besides sugar-free maple syrup and keto fruit, you can also have eggs, bacon, and coffee.

4. Can I use erythritol instead of stevia? Yes, you may. You will probably need ½ cup of erythritol. Stevia is sweeter than erythritol, hence the small amount. Erythritol can also cause digestive upset in some people.

5. My pancake batter is too thick or dry. What should I do? Add a small amount of water at a time until you achieve the right consistency.

6. How many net carbs are in each serving? Only 5.3 grams of net carbohydrates.
