Keto low carbs pancakes
Keto low carbs pancakes, So for a while now there’s been variations on the same keto pancake recipe floating around on the internet. I think the first place I saw some version of the “cream cheese and egg” pancake was on Melissa Sevigny’s lovely recipe blog, I Breathe I’m Hungry. And there’s a reason the recipe has so many fans: it’s simple, it’s quick, and it’s tasty.
But…it isn’t quite pancakes. It’s pancake-like, certainly. But for me, they always came out flat like crepes and tasting just a little too much like eggs to really be a replica of the fluffy breakfast pastry I remembered from my pre-keto days.
Still, the recipe was a good starting point. With a little tweaking and a couple additions, I was able to come up with something just a little closer to the real thing.
Oh, and the best part? It’s still a pretty simple recipe, and it’s still pretty quick to make. Just like the recipe you’re used to, you just throw everything in a blender, and two minutes later your batter is ready to go. Only now the result is a lot more pancake-like: golden brown, fluffy, and slightly sweet.
The other best part? It’s a flexible recipe! Add a splash of melted butter to the batter, and you can make yourself some pretty kickass keto waffles too. Add in blueberries (I heat mine with a little bit of Swerve first) and you can have blueberry pancakes. And I’m not a fan of chocolate for breakfast, but I don’t see why you couldn’t toss in a few low carb chocolate chips if that’s your thing.

Prep Time: 10m
Cook Time: 15m
Total Time: 25m
Yield: 8-10 pancakes/waffles
- 4 ounces cheese, softened
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoons flavored, or sugar-free vanilla syrup
- 1 tablespoon sugar substitute, or additional to style
- 4 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1 one/2 teaspoons leaven
- 1 dash cinnamon (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon maple extract (optional)
- 1/2 cup almond milk (or any milk of choice)
Add all ingredients to blender. Start with eggs and cream cheese so you don’t have anything get stuck at bottom.
Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides if needed. Let batter sit for 2 minutes.
Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. For each pancake, pour 3 to 4 tablespoons of batter onto skillet.
Once you start to see little bubbles form, flip and continue to cook until pancake is browned on each side. Continue until you have used all pancake batter.
Serve pancakes topped with butter and syrup!
