These keto pancakes have the main ingredients coconut flour which is excellent if you are looking for a low carb version of this popular recipe.

Since beginning the keto diet, making wheat-free keto pancakes is my go-to dessert (or breakfast) when I want to indulge in something sweet, flavourful and super fast. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare the batter and 10-15 minutes to cook them.

Everybody all over the world loves pancakes. A pat of butter slowly melting on a stack of pancakes with some sweet (maple) syrup. This sounds like a childhood lazy Sunday morning when the smell of fresh and buttery pancakes was the wake-up alarm. Oh, the great memories?

When I am craving a chocolate rich cake, I make my Super Easy Keto Chocolate Brownie Mug Cake. That’s another ridiculously easy and tasty keto dessert I love love love to make.

This recipe yields 6 decent sized pancakes. A serving of 2 pancakes has only 4g NET carbs. I usually eat 3 of keto pancakes, and they keep me full until dinner. That’s one thing I love most about being fat fueled.

Another great thing is that you don’t need to use almond flour, so this recipe can be savored even by those of you with an allergy to almonds.

I love to serve it with 1 tbsp coconut oil and some sugar-free peanut butter

Keto pancakes with coconut flour


To keep this fantastic recipe low carb and keto friendly, I used coconut flour. You will need a small quantity since it has the property to absorb well a lot of liquid. Using coconut flour will yield pancakes that are very low in carbs, but also pretty low in calories compared with the almond flour pancakes.

I usually love to make single serving recipes, and this one yields 3 decent sized pancakes that you can enjoy freely. If you need to make more servings, you can simply double or triple the recipe, the result will still be amazing.

Low Carb Pancakes Instructions

A perfect recipe that will make you forget about the old style high in carbs pancakes. I used cream cheese, but you can also use mascarpone cheese for a rich and dense taste.

  1. What’s also impressive how fast you can mix all the ingredients for the low carb pancakes to make the perfect batter. After you gather all you need it’s a matter of minutes.
  2. After whisking all the ingredients, proceed as usual and heat up a pan and melt a pat of batter. Spread the mixture into 3-inch circles and flip when bubbles start to form on top.
  3. Let them cook for another 2 minutes, and you are ready to enjoy the incredible keto pancakes.

Toppings for the keto 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 Friendly Pancakes Syrup Ingredients

  • 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).

Can I use almond flour to make keto pancakes?

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.

  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!
