Keto Four-Ingredient Pancake with Almond Flour Recipe
Pancakes don’t have to be a breakfast of the past. Treat yourself to a special morning meal with this keto four-ingredient pancake recipe with almond flour.
Why Pancakes Are Not Keto
They’re fluffy. They’re yummy. They are a delight to eat. But unfortunately, the pancakes you grew up with are not keto friendly.
Actually, they’re kind of the antithesis of keto. The actual carb count would depend on the particular recipe, but rest assured pancakes are a high-carbohydrate food. After all, there is a reason that athletes are pounding them like there’s no tomorrow.
Of course, pancakes generally pack a one-two punch, thanks to the toppings that usually go with them. Syrup, chocolate chips, and whipped cream add fuel to the dietary fire with all of that sugar.
How to Make Keto Pancakes
Fortunately, with some simple tweaks, you can make the pancakes of your dreams without the carbohydrates of your nightmares.
Instead of all-purpose flour, I used almond flour, which has a great flavor and works nicely in this recipe.
To sweeten, I added erythritol, a sugar alcohol that’s been working really well in a lot of my recipes lately. It doesn’t impact your blood sugar the way white or brown sugar does, so it’s a good choice for your keto diet.
You can use your choice of almond or coconut milk – just use the stuff from the cartons, not the cans.
