These pancakes are the perfect combination of cream cheese pancakes, low carb, and moderate protein pancakes. I have tried several Keto pancake breakfast recipes from Pinterest, but most turned out flat like crepes. I dunno about you, but I'm more of a pancake kinda girl. These will be your favorite fluffy Keto pancakes!
How to make easy low carb coconut flour pancakes
Making pancakes with coconut flour is unbelievably easy. You throw together all the ingredients and quickly cook in a frying pan like you would any breakfast pancakes. Slap some Kerry Gold Grass-Fed Butter and Keto pancake syrup on top, and your Saturday Keto breakfast is complete.
I use the NutriBullet Blender. It’s much more convenient than tradition blenders. The blade twists onto the cup you add all your ingredients to and then after blending you can detach the blade part and quickly clean it. It's a game changer for breakfast smoothies too.
So now that you have your coconut flour pancake batter, grease a medium frying pan. I use Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray, over medium-low heat add about 1/3 cup of batter to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side.
Quick Tip: The recipe makes four pancakes so if its easier use about 1/4 of the batter for each pancake.
Coconut flour pancakes Vs Almond Flour Pancakes
Some people prefer to make almond flour pancakes because they worry that the coconut flour will give the pancakes to strong of a coconut flavor. However, I don’t find these coconut flour pancakes to have a strong coconut flavor at all.
Coconut flour is super absorbent, so this recipe only calls for three tablespoons of coconut flour to make four Keto Pancakes, which are not only low in carbs but keeps the calories low too!
For anyone with a nut allergy, almond flour pancakes are clearly not an option. Since these pancakes are made with coconut flour, anyone with a nut allergy can still enjoy them.
I have found that buying almond flour, coconut flour or really any specialty baking ingredients from traditional grocery stores is far more expensive than shopping online, so regardless of which brand you go with I would try to find one online.

Tips for the best Keto coconut Flour Pancakes
How to make low carb coconut flour fluffy pancakes? The Batter is supposed to be thick. These Keto pancakes are the perfect combination of low carb coconut flour pancakes and cream cheese pancakes so don’t try to add extra ingredients if you are worried that the batter is thicker than regular pancakes… It's ok!
Double the recipe! Trust me you’ll want more tomorrow, or maybe for lunch haha. I always double or triple the recipe. Number one, cause my husband eats a huge stack and these store pretty well, so you can save a serving in the fridge and reheat it
Keep your pancakes small. These are already thick fluffy Keto pancakes if you try to make your pancakes too big they don’t absorb the syrup as much.
Keep an eye on the pancakes when cooking you don’t want them to burn, once you notice little air bubbles around the edges that’s your sign they are ready to flip!
Keto Pancake Syrup and Low Carb Pancake Toppings
Syrup can make or break a good batch of pancakes, but the struggle is real when it comes to finding a Keto Maple pancake syrup that isn't high in calories, carbs and packed with artificial sweeteners.
For the Keto Pancake Syrup, there are three options I recommend:
Choc Zero Sugar-free Maple Syrup- Taste like the real deal on pancakes and has clean, guilt-free ingredients, and it has a thicker constancy, which is great for these coconut flour pancakes that are super absorbent.
Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup- I prefer using this one in recipes like these Keto Pumpkin Mini Muffins because the consistency is much thinner. I prefer the ingredients list of this Keto Maple syrup over all three. However, too me it has a bit of an after taste.
Walden Farms Pancake Syrup- You could put this syrup in an Aunt Jemima bottle and fool everyone. Although it has zero calories and is sugar-free, but it doesn’t have the cleanest ingredients.
For this recipe, my top pick is the Choc Zero Maple Syrup
If you want to spruce up your Coconut Flour Pancakes Keto style here are some
low carb pancake topping options:
Keto Blue Berry Pancakes - drop a few blueberries in your pancake batter once in the frying pan or top your pancakes with blueberries on your plate.
Extra Coconut Pancakes- sprinkle your Keto pancakes with unsweetened coconut flakes.
Chocolate chip Keto Pancakes- Sprinkle a few sugar-free chocolate chips in your batter.
Chocolate drizzled pancakes- instead of Keto maple syrup, try Lakanto Sugar-free Chocolate syrup.
Nutty Pancakes- Crush up some walnuts or your favorite nut and sprinkle on top.
