Using coconut flour will yield pancakes that are very low in carbs, but also pretty low in calories compared with the almond flour pancakes.

Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour?

keto pancakes with coconut flour or almond flour

To substitute 1/4 cup coconut flour, you will 1 cup almond flour. You should probably reduce the liquids too since the almond flour is not as absorbent as coconut flour. Just play with the ingredients until you get a thick pancake-like consistency.

Toppings for the pancakes

Lately, I have been using a homemade keto sugar-free syrup that is absolutely delicious, easy to make and almost zero carb.

I know that on the market you can find lots of sugar-free syrups and some of them are actually really tasty.

You can definitely go for it, but here’s an easy and quick recipe for my favorite keto pancake syrup.

Keto Syrup Ingredients for pancakes

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • Sweetener to taste
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract

Instructions for the keto syrup

  1. Melt the coconut oil and the butter.
  2. Add the sweetener, maple extract, and mix.
  3. Pour over the hot pancakes and enjoy.

Make the Keto Pancakes, and you will end up eating a lightly vanilla scented dessert with a subtle sweet cinnamon flavor (which you can omit).

  1. Hi
    Thanks for sharing this recipe, can you please clarify…2 pancakes is 4g NET carbs but what are the 22g is that the total carbs?

    • Googled the mom's flours and the ingredients are: White Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, Xanthan Gum.These flours are not keto friendly at all.

  2. Just made these and INHALED them…soooooooo freaking good! (And super easy to throw together!) Highly recommend! Thanks for a great recipe. 🙂

  3. Could not get these to cook right! Even when edges were bubbling like a normal pancake couldn’t flip them without them coming apart

  4. These are so good! I've really missed pancakes and now I can have them. Just as good as the ones made with wheat flour. Thank you!

  5. I made these today and they are amazing!
    I’ve done many recipe testing to find the ideal keto friendly pancakes and these are the best! No need to search anymore! Yum!

  6. Trying to make these and the mixture is super thick. I’ve added extra heavy cream (a splash) and almost half a cup of water. I’m not sure they’ll be any good but I’m definitely hoping!

    • It really depends on the coconut flour brands. Some absorb more liquid than the others. In the end with the right adjustments made, the keto pancakes still taste great.

  7. I didnt have any cream cheese so I drained some sour cream and added a little more baking powder and a little more coconut flour. My non keto son even loved it with 1/4/cup heated berries mashed with butter. Made the breakfast muffins last night. He loved those too. Ps….. I loved them better!

    • I am so happy you liked the pancakes and breakfast muffins. What a great idea to heat berries and butter for the topping. Thank you so much for sharing.

    • I have never tried freezing the pancakes. I like the keto pancakes fresh and hot. They are super easy to make, and it takes like 5 minutes to whip everything up and cook. If you try them, let me know how they turned out!

  8. I have tried so many keto pancake recipes. Mine never turn out like actual pancakes. Maybe it’s the brand coconut flour I use? Ugh they do taste and smell yummy. But mine came out more like bricks instead of fluffy

    • Hello Katina!
      Your coconut flour is probably more absorbent than others. Add a little bit more liquid than the recipes requires. Also, try not to over bake them. Hope it helps!

  9. Omg! Seriously so good! I’m not a pancake fan mainly because of how I feel after I eat them….bloated and gross.
    I dont recommend making these when you are home alone, you may just eat them all! Don’t ask me how I know this.
    I also added some cooked bacon bits to the batter and topped them with sugar free syrup and whipped cream. Love!

  10. I used all same ingredients but when I put them into my calculator it gives me higher carb count then what you have listed just the 1/4 cup Anthony’s coconut flour is 11g of carbs I wonder what I’m doing wrong lol

  11. I just made these as I was craving some dessert… they were fantastic! I got six out of the mix, but only got to eat two before my family dived on the remaining… slice strawberries, grated dark choc and some double thick cream…

  12. Good morning Ioana I am a first-time keto pancake maker. In fact, the only keto recipes I have used are
    casseroles, I haven't ventured into breads. I decides to try your recipt. It look simple and photos, the outcome looks delicious Don't really want to take the time to take photos. Do I'll give you a description of my experience. PS They don't look horrible. The batter was unusually thick. I managed to cook 2 pancakes and they, of course, had to be spooned onto the hot surface. I tasted them. They fell apart and were super grainy. Now maybe this is normal, but mine sure didn't look like yours. I have eaten some and the keto "fullnes"s factor is there. The taste is tolerable, but will be throwing out my expensive batter. Would love to hear where I went so desperately wrong. And will possibly try again. Thanks for listening. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Hello Glenda! The coconut flour you used probably absorbed more liquid. Just add more water or almond milk until you get a pancake consistency. I should probably make a video showing exactly how to make them.

    • Hey there. This recipe yields 6 coconut flour pancakes, perfect for 2 servings. If you want to make a bigger batch, you can double or triple the ingredients.

  13. Hello Ioana,
    I see in the article this recipe yields 6 decent sized pancakes and a serving is 3. In your comment answering a question you say this recipe yields 3 Pancakes. Also in the nutrition facts it says servings 3. So if you could clarify? I’m just trying to enter in the proper nutrition facts to my app.

  14. These pancakes are delicious! I've tried other keto pancake recipes and they don't compare to this one. I've made this recipe several times and wouldn't change a thing!

  15. Could I make this recipe without the sour cream or hwc? I have been craving panckaes and I really want to make the coconut flour pancakes in the morning but I do not have sour cream or hwc? I need to go shopping but for now I sit ok if I omit them or is there another substitute I could use? Thanks in advance.

  16. Just made these this is my 5th different pancake recipe and this one is the final keeper ,wow did not taste eggy you can't taste the coconut flour it just tastes like a good pancake I opted for the softened cream cheese added just a hint of water because it looked a little bit thick maybe a tablespoon and they came out perfect. Thank you so much living this keto lifestyle one has to pick and choose the right recipes the ingredients are expensive so you want to make sure it's the right one in this is it

  17. Didn’t have heavy whipping cream so I tried 1/2 and 1/2. Also subbed in almond extract and hoped they would set up okay. They were absolutely amazing…so amazing that this is the first time in 53 years that I have reviewed someone’s recipe. Thank you for sharing and for saving me from another morning of scrambled eggs!

  18. These were delicious! I mixed everything up in a small blender (think Nutrabullet) and everything fit. Added a bit of flavored stevia liquid drops, and a dash more cinnamon! Mmm! I did not have the 3” rings, but this recipe produced 4 large pancakes (6” diameter) that still rose nicely – better than many cream cheese pancake recipes I have tried! Not sure if it was due to the baking powder or coconut flour? Any who, I will definitely purchase the rings because I can then use them for eggs! Definitely try this if you’re low carb/Keto and are longing for pancakes!!

  19. Omg! Followed this recipe exactly and I’m completely blown away at how good it turned out. I ended up doubling the recipe so that my kids can enjoy and pleased that they loved it!! The only thing I noticed was that my cream cheese was kind of lumpy (although it was soft) BUT I ended up LOVING it because I had these little cheesecake like pieces throughout!! Mmm I didn’t even top them with anything, just ate them plain with coffee. They’re that good!!! Thank you for posting this gem! #ketolife #thankful

  20. Better than Flour Pancakes! Was craving something cake or bread-like, my one weakness, and what I miss most on keto diet, but I'm down 30lbs, so I'm sticking to it. Used exact ingredients, but I separated the eggs and whipped the whites to fluffy clouds with 2 tsp of the monk/ erythritol. Mixed the rest of the ingredients, then folded in the whites for perfect batter. It made about 10 pancakes, SO GOOD. Tasted like madeleines cookies. They Do freeze well! Stored about 6 of them in freezer, Pulled 2 every morning before work, throw in the toaster oven 5 minutes. All that buttery goodness made them so soft again when warm. I could even say they were better the next day. I spread almond butter instead of syrup, pancakes were sweet enough. Making new batch today.

    • Hey there! Thank you for the kind comment. I am super happy you liked the recipe!! Your advice regarding freezing the keto pancakes may be very helpful to others!!!
