Keto pancakes, whaaaat? You mean there is more to eat than eggs for breakfast on a low carb diet? There sure is and they don’t taste like cardboard either. You can make fluffy keto pancakes by using ricotta cheese. You read that right – ricotta cheese!
There is no question that I crave carb-filled treats daily. Cookies, cakes and donuts, oh my. I can’t tell you how many times I have texted a friend exclaiming “I want a donut!” So when I can find a way to imitate these delicious treats with fewer carbs, I am all over it.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love eggs. I have plenty of low carb and keto egg recipes that are really, really good. But sometimes I just can’t curb that craving for something fluffy and carb-ish (that’s my word, I made it up, but you can use it).
So when I want to give in to those carb cravings, I do. By eating keto versions of my favorite carb loaded foods.
What you need to make keto pancakes
First of all, you can avoid all of this trouble by grabbing a bag of Birch Benders Keto Pancake Mix. I’ve tried it and it’s pretty good. Not as fluffy as ricotta pancakes but a quick and easy alternative.
If you have a few extra minutes (that’s all it really takes) and all of the ingredients you need, however, it’s worth making these yummy beauties from scratch.
How to make keto pancakes
The beauty behind this recipe is not only in the fact that it is low carb (only 3 grams of net crabs per serving) but that you just mix everything together in the blender, pour onto a griddle, flip, and serve. Easy!
- Add all ingredients into a blender.
- Combine until smooth.
- Add pecans.
Then spoon onto a griddle and cook until done.
Now, keep in mind, a serving is one pancake. 3 grams net carbs for 1 pancake. If you eat the whole batch, that’s still only 18 grams of net carbs, less than probably a single non-keto pancake.
