Keto Pancakes Recipe With Coconut Flour and Cream Cheese- Low carb
A big stack of warm keto pancakes with extra butter and maple syrup on top! I mean what more can you ask for on a Saturday morning? Oh I know, I also asked for them to be fluffy coconut flour pancakes that are low carb, easy to make and could fit into my keto meal plan for the day! All jokes aside, I literally woke up last weekend and the first thing I said to my husband is "I want pancakes", and he sure delivered. The best part is the recipe only calls for 7 ingredients, so my fellow keto frans probably already have most, if not all of the ingredients in their pantry! Since these are made with coconut flour, instead of almond flour they are nut free (I've noticed a lot of people saying they are allergic to nuts on other posts).
What Syrup Should I Use?
Pancakes without syrup is stupid, but the struggle is real when it comes to finding a good syrup that isn't high calorie and super sugary. Have you ever heard of Walden Farms? So they make a variety of syrups from maple walnut, caramel, blueberry etc. I admittedly bought the variety pack once before and my favorite is just the original, maple walnut and the caramel was pretty good too. I would not suggest getting the chocolate, the blueberry and strawberry weren't terrible, but I'm not usually a fruity syrup kinda girl, so I'm not sure I'd be the best judge for those two. The Walden syrups are made with real maple flavor, but no calories, carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind!
What You'll Need:
• 3 tbsp Coconut flour (I use Red Mill, which can be found at most grocery stores)
• 3 tbsp Heavy cream
• 2 oz Plain cream cheese
• 2 Eggs
• 1 tbsp Monkfruit sweetener or Erythritol (or sweetener of your choice)
• 1/2 tsp Baking powder
• 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
How To Do It:
- Blend all ingredients until smooth. Let the batter rest to thicken.
- Grease a medium pan and fry pancakes over medium heat, about 2 minutes per side.
- Top with butter and syrup :) (not included in nutrition facts)
The recipe makes 4, 6 inch pancakes: 2 pancakes = 1 serving, Each serving is 5 Net Carbs
