Ever since I mastered the art of learning how to make low carb pancakes without protein powder, the game has changed.

These fluffy low carb cinnamon roll pancakes come in two versions- A flourless version (which is vegan and gluten-free) and a keto and paleo friendly version. 

Both are super thick and fluffy

Use minimal ingredients

Satisfying and filling

However, it wasn’t an easy road to get here.

Based on reader feedback, my original low carb pancakes have either been a massive hit or they’ve gone the opposite direction.

As much as I preach to cook them on low heat and covered, there is one ingredient which can make or break the recipe- Coconut flour. 

I’ve tried many coconut flour brands over the last few years and I can confidently say that no brand is the same. Some brands require a smaller amount of liquid (milk, water, etc) yet others will see you continue adding more and more until it reaches the desired consistency. 

Furthermore, the vegan option was included in the recipe and was also hit or miss. To combat this AND be able to provide to both audiences, I’m sharing two options for these fluffy cinnamon roll pancakes-

The vegan/flourless + gluten-free version- Using rolled oats or quinoa flakes, and without any eggs or dairy needed.

The keto/low carb/grain free and paleo version- Using a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and eggs.

Is coconut flour low carb?

Coconut flour is indeed considered a low carb flour and is a popular ingredient amongst the paleo, low carb, and keto communities. 

Is almond flour low carb?

Like coconut flour, almond flour is also very low in carbs but is able to mimic the texture of traditional flour much easier. Aim for finely milled or ground almond flour as opposed to the almond meal, which can be a little more coarse and gritty. 

For the low carb keto version, you’ll use a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and eggs. I’ve found that the addition of eggs really does give these pancakes the perfect texture- Cake like and fluffy. 

For the flourless, vegan and dairy-free version, 

ROLLED OATS OR QUINOA FLAKES

I personally prefer rolled oats, as the taste was very similar to a traditional flour-based pancake. Using ground quinoa flakes (or quinoa flour) did yield a slightly better texture, but I could definitely tell that there it was quinoa based.

Tips and tricks to ensure ultra fluffy low carb cinnamon roll pancakes- 

  • Do not substitute between either of the options- If you want the flourless vegan one, use the ingredients specific to that. For those of you wanting the low carb keto pancakes, the same applies. This is a two-for-one recipe.
  • For the flourless version, you can swap out the apple cider vinegar for lemon juice or lime juice. Also, depending on the starch you use, you may need to add more liquid to form a pourable batter.
  • To ensure pancakes are ultra thick and fluffy, cook on lower heat and keep covered, if possible. Only flip when the edges start to bubble and PLEASE grease your pan- We don’t want pancakes unable to be flipped or stuck. 
  • My favorite products used include this high-speed blender, this non-stick pan (even though it is non-stick, I still greased it slightly), and this spatula for easy flipping. 

BONUS! These fluffy cinnamon roll pancakes are freezer friendly- Simply batch cook extra and freeze them in ziplock bags. To reheat, either thaw in the microwave on medium power or reheat in the greased pan (from a thawed state, for 2-3 minutes).

Ingredients

Keto Low Carb Version (Keto, Paleo, Sugar Free)

Flourless Version (Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Egg-Free)

For the sticky cinnamon roll glaze

Instructions

  • In a high-speed blender, add all your ingredients and blend until fully combined and a thick batter remains. 
  • Allow the batter to rest for 5-10 minutes, allowing the coconut flour/rolled oats to thicken. If the batter is too thick, continue to add milk of choice. 
  • Preheat a greased/oiled pan over low-medium heat. Pour scant 1/4 cup portions of batter on the hot pan. Cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles form on the edges and flip. Continue cooking until all the batter is used up. 
  • Once pancakes are cooked, prepare your sticky cinnamon roll glaze. Melt your coconut butter and add the cinnamon. Thin out with milk and drizzle over the top. 

Notes

* Adjust accordingly. If batter is too thick, add extra milk.
Fluffy Low Carb Keto Cinnamon Roll Pancakes (Paleo, Vegan) are freezer friendly- Ensure they are kept in a ziplock bag.

  1. for the flourless version, you didn’t mention apple cider vinegar in ingredients, but in your notes (tips & tricks) it was there. please advise as i wanna make some this weekend

  2. I thought I posted this comment…can’t find it though lol! so here it is again:
    Curious – what version of recipe did you use in the pictures you used here.
    They do look yummy:)
    Thanks

  3. I just made the keto version, not just for myself but for my son and fiance. They both ate them and said they were delicious! They are good! They have a good flavor and texture and are not heavy or dense. My glaze did not turn out like the picture, even though I followed the recipe exactly. It looked like chocolate frosting–I imagine from the cinnamon. It tasted fine on my pancakes–more like a nut butter spread than a frosting or glaze.
    Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. Thanks @ jmw…I was waiting for @ armanthebigmansworld to answer my previous question regarding which recipe was followed for the picture shoot. Now I know!

      Thanks:)

  4. I made the Keto version but I used just two eggs then added about 4 tablespoons of pumpkin purée and turned them into pumpkin pancakes! It tasted amazing

  5. Can you tell me what is considered 1 serving? Is it one pancake? In the nutritional information you just state one serving, no specifics.
    Thank you so much for the recipe!! Looking forward to making these as I venture on in my new Keto way of living!
    Thanks!

      1. Kelly, you might just have to weigh the entire batter out and divide it into three even portions. I was thinking the same thing, “What constitutes as a serving? How many pancakes does this batter make?”, but honestly, that’s the only way I could think of for deciphering what a serving could be.

  6. Hello, I was writing to ask what was the serving of the vegan, gluten free, sugar free, egg free pancakes? Is it the entire batter? Or just 2 pancakes or so? Also, the only pancakes that I see that are vegan are not me keto or paleo. So, is their a recipe I’m missing or do I just substitute items to make it vegan?

  7. How do you make them that fluffy in the image .they came out like regular pancakes flat? I didn’t cover since I used a griller .whole batter made 6 pancakes so 2 is 1 serving

  8. I’m looking for a recipe for pancakes that is Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Carb Free. What options do you recomend? I see you offer these eitehr vegan or keto, but i need both vegan and keto!

  9. So 3.5 g total carbs take dietry fibre of 3g = .5 gram net carbs? Im still new at keto and don’t want to be wrong and go over my carb limit haha

  10. I did the vegan ones, brilliant recipe! Except I did 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 whole wheat flour and 1/4 almond flour. I have them with jam made of just microwaved berries and chia seeds, really delicious, thanks so much!

  11. My husband just started keto with me. He was afraid he would no longer get tasty filling foods. Beloved these. Thank you so much!

  12. So sorry to bother you again, but can we switch the coconut butter for something else ? Like almond butter ? I am from France and coconut butter is not that easy to find, and to be honest I just won’t be able to use it for something else than this recipee, so I rather not buy it on purpose.

    1. I think I’m going to try to thin out some cream cheese with almond milk. Mix a pinch of cinnamon in and maybe some sweetener. It will be like cream cheese icing only thinner. I have no idea where I’d get coconut butter.
