Low Carb Pancake Recipe

A low carb pancake recipe can easily be made by using grain-free alternatives like coconut or almond flour. 

These grain-free flours are gluten free and will be quite a bit lower in carbs than grains. 

You can also lower the amount of carbs in your pancake recipe by only using a small amount of healthy sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. 

Another alternative is to replace all "regular" sweeteners with stevia which will help cut down on your carb intake as well. 

Stevia (a natural plant) is much sweeter in taste than other sweeteners, but it won't make your blood sugar fluctuate too much which helps you stay in control of your blood sugar level.

Low Carb Pancake Recipe


Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
  • 3 Tbsp. Coconut Milk
  • 3 Tbsp. Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 3 Eggs (organic)
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Aluminum-free Baking Powder
  • 2 to 3 drops of Liquid Stevia

Use an immersion blender or a high speed blender to whip up your coconut pancake recipe. 

Then spoon pancake batter onto a greased griddle and cook on med-low heat. 

When you see bubbles start to form in the middle of pancakes and the edges start to cook - flip the pancakes and cook for another minute or two.

I love using coconut flour to make low carb pancake recipes.  They actually taste like "real" pancakes and come without the stomach pains (from gluten). 

And as long as you don't pour syrup all over your low carb pancake recipes, it will be low carb.

I like that she uses a lower heat to make her coconut flour pancakes.  It's true eggs are a very fragile protein and it's best not to overcook eggs.

Coconut Low Carb Pancake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 Organic Eggs (whisked until frothy)
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 2 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup or Honey

Whisk these ingredients together.

  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt

Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients.

Melt some coconut oil into a cast iron pan and cook pancakes on medium heat.

I really love this brand of coconut flour (Coconut Secret) - it is my favorite so far.

They also make a really good coconut syrup that is considered low glycemic - which is something a lot of people look for in healthy sweeteners.

Ketogenic Almond Flour Low Carb Pancake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Finely Ground Almond Meal Flour
  • 1/4 cup Flaxseed Meal
  • 2 Tbsp. Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Free Range Eggs (beaten)
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • Stevia Extract (to taste)
  • 2 oz. of Water

I also like ground flax because it adds essential fatty acids into your diet as well as a gel-forming fiber.

Gel-forming fibers from flax help things move along in a more "comfortable" way.

Berries can help to give you more potassium which can be a problem - especially in the beginning of a Ketogenic Diet.

Whisk ingredients together and then cook slowly in a non-stick pan.

Top with a berry compote made by blending unfrozen berries with stevia to add sweetness.

I think it's a great idea to replace the syrup with lots of butter and a berry compote sweetened with stevia.

Use "real" foods as much as possible to get the most nutrition - especially if you are on a Ketogenic diet.

Ketogenic Low Carb Pancake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup Almond Flour
  • 2 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 2 Free Range Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Aluminum-free Baking Powder
  • Stevia (to taste)
  • 1 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract

You can learn to make your own healthy cream cheese to use in your Ketogenic recipes for additional nutrition.

Blend ingredients with a hand mixer and pour pancake batter onto a greased griddle and cook until done.

She is an interesting Keto cook and I like the addition of cream cheese to a low carb pancake recipe.

Stevia - The Zero Carb Sweetener

This natural sweetener or herb has a zero glyemic index and is made from the leaves of the stevia plant.  Stevia contains zero calories and zero carbohydrates.

Stevia comes in many forms.  You can buy packets of stevia powder, pourable containers of stevia powder, liquid stevia, and flavored liquid stevia. 

Some people prefer using the liquid stevia while others like the powdered form of stevia - be sure to look for brands with the least amount of additives.

Stevia seems to help maintain your blood sugar levels in spite of its very sweet licorice taste, so you will only need to use a little bit to sweeten your foods.
