Paleo Low Carb Blueberry Pancakes

I’ve always been an advocate of making paleo low carb pancakes with coconut flour. It not only significantly reduces the carbs and ups the fiber count (which means I personally go CRAZY on the toppings), it also provides a lovely cakey texture.

However, based on reader feedback, it’s often been hit and miss when it comes to producing the perfect paleo pancake. I eventually started dabbling in sharing only flourless pancakes, but that often left my ketogenic and paleo friends missing out on the action. 

As such, I perfected my keto and paleo pancake recipes, and now make them with coconut flour AND almond flour. The combination of these two flours produces slightly less thickness, but absolutely fool-proof pancakes!

Can I eat fruit on a keto diet?

It’s often assumed that fruit cannot be eaten on a ketogenic diet. Contrary to popular belief, low sugar fruits CAN be enjoyed on a keto diet. 

These low carb blueberry pancakes are the perfect example. On their own (and eaten in a very large quantity), you could argue that blueberries are a primary carb source. However, when used as part of a very low carb recipe, it barely makes a dent! 

Are fruits low in carbs?

Depending on which fruits you choose, they can be considered relatively low carb. Most berries, like blueberries and strawberries, are one of the lowest carb fruits.

Is coconut flour good for a low carb and keto?

Again, hearing the word flour often conjures up thoughts of high carb recipes. Coconut flour is PERFECT for a ketogenic diet, as it is a high fiber, low carb baking ingredient.

The nutritional and calorie content for two tablespoons of coconut flour is 60 calories, with a mere 2 grams of net carbs! 

Is almond flour good for a low carb and keto diet?

Like coconut flour, almond flour is fantastic for a low carb keto diet. It’s a higher fat, high protein grain-free flour, made of ground almonds. It can often be referred to as almond meal. It has a very nutty, light texture. 

The nutritional and caloric content for two tablespoons of almond flour is 75 calories, with a mere 1 gram in net carbs!

As mentioned earlier, the combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and eggs produce the most perfect keto paleo blueberry pancakes, you’d be surprised that they were actually low carb! 

For egg-free and flourless pancakes

Please read the recipe card carefully for the flourless egg-free version. This is perfect for those following a vegan and egg-free diet. You have the option to use rolled oats or quinoa flakes. If you use the latter, add an extra tablespoon to the batter.

Tips and Tricks for Ultra Thick and Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes-

  • Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes before cooking- For the flourless version, if it’s too thick, add a little extra milk or liquid of choice
  • Use a good quality non-stick pan AND also grease it. Also consider a high-speed blender.
  • If possible, cover the pan when cooking to ensure both sides are evenly cooked. This will also ensure ultra fluffy and thick pancakes
  • Fold in blueberries at the very end- do not simply add to the top or it will burst when it hits the pan
  • Do not overspread the pancake batter- this will do so naturally 
  • Consider making multiple batches, as they freeze beautifully- Perfect for grab-and-go breakfasts or healthy meal prep

  1. i live in a remote area and do not acess to going quickly up to the store, it is a 5 hour round trip so i have stevia powder and liquid on hand and natural maple syrup, is it ok to use stevia?

  2. I made the vegan version for my son who is sensitive to gluten, dairy and eggs. I used coconut milk for the liquid, and coconut oil in the pan. They REALLY stuck to the pan. Do you have any tips to prevent this? They tasted great but did not resemble pancakes because they were so stuck. Thanks for any help you can give – I definitely want to make these again!

  3. I made the oat version with raspberries. Very tasty!!! I loved the recipe.
    I’d like to do the keto version but I can’t find coconut flour. Can I substitute it with more almond flour or what do you suggest? Thank you very much!

  4. I didn’t have any almond or coconut flour on hand, and have a child allergic to oats, so I used your recipe as inspiration for what I DID have! I had 1/2 cupof Bob’s Red Mill GF baking flour, added 4Tbs popped amaranth, 2tsp baking powder, 1/2 tap xantham gum, 1tsp cinnamon, 3tbs sugar, 4 eggs, 1/2cup almond milk. They turned out soft, fluffy and delicious! Now, I and my family are not on a total grain free diet, but we do have an enormous amount of food allergies and this recipe helped me in a pinch. Thank you!

  5. I’m glad I found this site, I just started and still feeling my way around on the keto diet. Been craving sweets like crazy. Gonna try all these Thx

  6. Made these for breakfast. I had to alter your recipe as follows:

    *I halved the recipe because it was just myself and really don’t want to be a glutton! *I did not have blueberries so these were just regular pancakes. *My batter did not seem thick enough after adding a bit less than 1/4c cream so I added another TBS almond flour, then tsp coconut flour. Now seemed thick enough. Otherwise followed the directions. They cooked up nicely and were more dense than I anticipated. ***Next time I make them I will add some vanilla for added flavor, as this ingredient was missing from the flour recipe, but is included in the non-flour option.

    But open to any suggestions on how to make these less dense? Less blending?

  7. I just made these…recipe is a keeper and it turned out great, overall, bit they were thin. Taste was great. Wondering how I can get mine to be more fluffy.
    I added the baking soda and followed recipe exactly. Please help.

  8. Turned out great, best version i have come across. Keto version so i used almond milk. I did have difficultly cooking and not burn. Will practice Getting temp right, i did cover.

  9. I feom Sydney! These are the best keto pancakes I’ve ever had. I divided the batter into 2 not 3 and added a pinch of salt and removed tje sweetner. Thanks so much!!!

  10. Excellent pancakes! I doubled the recipe for the low carb version. My son even enjoyed them. I’m putting this in my recipe box. 🙂

  11. I absolutely HATE the taste of coconut, and coconut flour (CF) is known for its strong coconut flavor. So although this recipe calls for only a small amount of CF, I’m hesitant because I suspect that even a small amount of it will impart that nasty coconut flavor (if even just a hint of it) to the finished product. Is there something else that can be substituted for the CF?

  12. I love these, because I love anything pancake! ? I made both! ?

    For the low carb option I didn’t have almond flour, so I just ground up half a cup of oats for “oat flour” as a substitute. I don’t know if that’s taboo or not, but it tasted amazing! A little eggy for me (I’m not an egg person) so can I do 2 eggs rather?

    The vegan option was light & fluffy. But the baking powder and apple cider vinegar came through quite strong, can I go down to 3/4 tbsp?

    Overall, texture and flavour, low carb is the strong winner! Maybe it’s the cinnamon? My fave spice. I have saved this recipe as my cheat meal when I feel like pancakes. I have already made three different treats of yours. Watch me, I’m going to lose weight while still enjoying my sweet tooth ??

    I am grateful that you share your talent Arman! So glad I discovered you.

  13. I wouldn’t call these pancakes, even though they look like them in shape. They are perfectly fluffy. But the dark color and the small grainy crumb from the almond flour makes them something else. And they taste a bit like while wheat toast. They’re good & healthy – just not pancakey enough to make as pancakes

    1. Hi Rachel, sorry to hear that- Have you tried using blanched almond flour? Different brands of almond flour tend to yield different results- The ones I recommend and use are smooth and really fluffy!

  14. The oat version came out beautifully. I made them for my husband who is on a strict no processed foods diet. They were really satisfying and helped our family to enjoy breakfast again.

  15. THESE WERE VERY GOOD. you can not compare a “keto” pancake to your pancake batters from a box. these are wonderful and perfect for keto followers. one is all you need, very filling!! and i like that they did not include cream cheese, kinda tired of all the recipes with so much cheese!!

  16. I follow the recipe for the low carb and it went in the pan flat and runny. My boyfriend thought they were ok. I didn’t like them at all. But, there’s only so much you can do when utilizing low sugar substitutes. I’m glad that I already had the ingredients.

  17. Do you this this could be made with water instead of almond milk? I dont keep it on hand and I hate to buy it for just a little bit. If not do you think canned coconut milk would work?

  18. I was very much a doubter since i have never tried almond flour. Grew up on homemade blueberry pancakes with buttermilk, flour, etc.. GREAT JOB!!!! I have been a little disappointed in the overall Keto recipes I find and was expecting the same from this one. I was wrong.. Used blue berries we picked this past summer in Northern Minn.

    Looking forward to trying more of your recipes.


  19. I used equal as my sugar sub (a little more than the recipe because I like sweeter stuff) and coconut milk for my dairy sub! A little more cinnamon than the recipe, and they taste just like regular pancakes!! Definitely making again!

  20. Just wanted to say what a great recipe this is. I made them Saturday and cooked them in a pan and they turned out wonderful. I just made more today and used my pancake maker and they turned out ever better. Thank you so much 😁 I have one little question. How do I reheat them? Toaster?

    1. 😀 yay! For sure- I like to reheat them in the microwave or crisp up on the pan, but a toaster will work too, as long as the setting is low (so it doesn’t turn to toast!)
