Keto Pancake Ingredients
- Almond flour – Choose blanched and finely ground for the best results.
- Coconut flour – Combining this with almond flour makes it come out more like all-purpose flour.
- Keto-friendly sweetener – We like Besti Erythritol for these keto pancakes.
- Baking powder – Without it, you won’t get your pancakes to rise like they should.
- Eggs – You’ll need 5 of them to bind things together.
- Almond milk – Choose the unsweetened variety.
- Avocado oil – Make sure it’s at room temperature first.
- Cinnamon – Gives these pancakes that slight spice.
- Vanilla extract – And this works with the cinnamon for a wonderful sweet taste.
- Sea salt – This will balance that sweet taste for perfect pancake harmony!
How do you make keto pancakes from scratch?
Grab a large mixing bowl and throw all the ingredients in there. Whisk it until well combined and you have a smooth texture, much like a typical pancake batter. If it’s too thick, add just a tablespoon more of that almond milk at a time until it gets to the right consistency. Over medium-low, heat your lightly greased nonstick pan or griddle. When it’s hot, scoop the batter onto the pan and cover with a lid. Cook 2 minutes until bubbles come up on the top, then remove the lid and flip, cooking the other side for 2 minutes or until golden. Then you can serve this low-carb breakfast with your favorite keto-friendly toppings.
Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Keto Pancakes Every Time
- Use both almond flour and coconut flour. Trust us, this is the secret to getting your keto pancakes to come out with the same kind of texture as regular pancakes.
- Make sure your pan or griddle is hot enough. This is incredibly important for achieving golden brown pancake perfection!
- Cover them when you first pour in the batter. You won’t need to when you flip them, but these will take a little longer than traditional pancakes to start bubbling on the top. Covering them helps ensure they cook through as they should or you’ll get raw batter in the middle.
