Keto Almond Flour Pancakes

If you ever give me limp and flat pancakes, I will brandish you in the section where I keep cilantro and parsley. For those of you who know me well, know that I think cilantro and parsley are God’s gift to the naughty. 

Back to pancakes. 

When it comes to pancakes, I need them to be thick, fluffy and most importantly- Filling. Through multiple pancake experiments (as evidenced in these black forest pancakes, Anzac biscuit pancakes and cinnamon bun pancakes), I’ve come to realise the key to fluffy, thick and filling pancakes are 3 things- My beloved coconut flour and almond flour.

Almond flour and coconut flour are the ultimate combinations which yield perfectly thick pancakes.

Through much trial and error, I’ve come to find that when paired with coconut flour, almond flour  yield a much better result that their whole counterparts.

Back in 2013, I shared this delicious pancake recipe based on an Australian classic cookie- The Anzac biscuit. The base has always been one of my standby recipes to consistent fluffy pancakes. I was keen to see if I could make them completely grain free and paleo friendly by omitting my usual rolled oats. 

Not only did they turn out great, they also became that even fluffier and thick! When looking over the ingredients, I realized the final product was ridiculously low in carbs and high in fiber which meant one thing- GO CRAZY ON THE TOPPINGS!

Ingredients

For the pancakes

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and set aside. 
  • In two small bowls, separate the egg yolks from the whites. 
  • Add the egg yolks, coconut milk, and liquid stevia to the dry ingredients and mix very well. If the batter is too thin, add extra almond flour. If the batter is too thick, thin it out with a little extra coconut milk. 
  • Whisk the egg whites well, until slight peaks start to form. Slowly fold into the pancake batter and allow to sit to thicken approximately 5 minutes. 
  • Grease a non-stick pan on medium heat. When hot, pour small 1/4 cup portions of batter and if possible, place a lid on top. When bubbles start to form on the edges, flip and continue cooking until slightly golden. Repeat until all the pancake batter is used up. 
  • Prepare your optional glaze by combining all your ingredients and drizzling over the cooked pancakes. 

Notes

* For the vegan option, make these pancakes.
Healthy Fluffy Low Carb Pancakes should be enjoyed fresh, but can be refrigerated to enjoy later. They will keep for up to 5 days. They are freezer friendly, and will keep for up to 2 months.

    1. I haven’t eaten egg whites in about five years but I totally could understand the fluffy component they bring. What do you do with the yolks? Do you just throw them away? That would be my only hang up because I hate waste #poorcollegestudenthabit
      I love to make flavored syrup by mixing maple syrup with spices or fruit. It’s so easy and takes the pancakes to the next level! 🙂

    2. ITS SO FLUFFY IM GUNNA DIEEEEEE.
      No but for reals, the fluff. And with coconut flour? AWESOME! I actually love egg whites in baking, for the same reasons you said – they fluff so well!

    3. Mmmm pancakes. These look awesome. I actually like egg whites. I went through a weird phase for like 3 years where the taste of whole eggs grossed me out and egg whites by themselves were all I could deal with. Probably because they have zero flavor haha. I dress them up with feta cheese and spinach and then they taste pretty good.

    4. Egg whites are a staple of mine in omelets, baking and pancake-making, of course! They taste great and are super high in protein! I do like using whole eggs too, but I just make sure to enjoy them with a runny yolk!

    5. I need more pancakes in my life. The weird thing about the ones in Chicago is that they all taste like cake batter. Idk why they do that but I just want some regular pancakes sometimes!

    6. These are so fluffy, and you used coconut flour! 🙂 I have a similar recipe which I love, but the pancakes are not as fluffy, but still taste great! Anyway, about the cilantro…are your taste buds okay? Lol

        1. I tried it with the aquafaba, but didn’t beat it till stiff peaks. They were a fail :(. I will try next time after beating them till stiff peaks. I am always so scared to play with coconut flour…

    7. They’re so fluffy I could DIE! I got nothing against egg whites like I’ve got nothing against rice cakes. Totally delicious as long as you dress them up right!

    8. I am the worst pancake maker ever because they either a) burn, b) stay flat, c) fall apart, or d) a combination of a,b and c. Though I had some success with the Cinnamon Bun Pancakes so maybe I need to get over my fear of pancake fails.

      Favorite topping is your cream cheese frosting hands down. I could spoon it! Like when there’s no cottage cheese at hand 😉
