Let’s Make Them!
Prepare the Pancake Batter:
Heat your skillet or griddle over medium heat. In a small bowl, add your eggs and whisk them together until they are lightly beaten.
In a large bowl, combine your dry ingredients (coconut flour, sweetener, cinnamon, salt, baking powder) and mix until there are no lumps.
Next, add the wet ingredients (lightly beaten eggs, butter, milk, vanilla extract) and mix until combined.
Cook The Pancakes:
Using a small measuring cup, scoop the batter onto your hot griddle. We made 8 medium sized pancakes with this recipe. Griddle should be hot, but keep the heat at medium low, so the pancakes don’t burn. These cook quickly, and you only need about 1-2 minutes on each side, watching closely.
Top The Pancakes:
Now, top with whatever you want! We made some cinnamon butter, whipped cream and cut up some berries. We of course topped it all with sugar free syrup. Your fluffy keto friendly coconut pancakes are all set, in no time!
Is Coconut Flour Good for Keto?
Yes, absolutely! Coconut flour is very low in carbs, and high in fiber, making it absolutely perfect for the keto diet.
Can I Substitute For Almond Flour in This Recipe?
No, actually. This recipe was specifically designed using coconut flour. Coconut flour and almond flour are not a 1:1 swap.
While we normally use almond flour in many of our recipes, but it would not be a good substitute in this case. The coconut flour works because it soaks up so much liquid, which allows us to use a small amount, while the rest of the ingredients absorb into the batter and make these pancakes super fluffy!
Almond flour is so dense, and it adds too many calories, so for this particular recipe, we cannot recommend using it as a substitution. You would likely have to use a lot more almond flour to achieve the same result, and your pancakes suddenly become super dense in texture, as well as calories!
What’s The Best Sugar Free Maple Syrup?
We are affiliates for the world’s best sugar free maple syrup. Trust us, we’ve tried them all, and ChocZero is by far the best! It’s only 1 net carb per serving, super thick and so tasty. You can use our affiliate code ‘AFullLiving’ for 10% off your order on ChocZero’s website!
Do I Have To Use Butter For These Keto Pancakes?
We love the flavor of melted butter, but you could of course substitute with avocado oil or coconut oil if you’re dairy free. You will need melted oil or butter for the batter, plus some additional for frying the pancakes.
What’s The Best Milk or Milk Substitute For Keto?
We use an ultra filtered low carb whole milk for this recipe. We’re starting to see more and more of these on the market! We love Organic Valley milks for this reason. They vary from 6-7 net carbs per cup, versus the regular amount of 12-13 grams of carbs in regular whole milk.
You could definitely easily substitute the milk for any nut milk. We love using Pacific Foods! Our faves are coconut milk, cashew milk, hazelnut milk or hemp milk. You could also add heavy cream or half and half for more flavor, but of course this will affect the calories and the carb count.
Some Great Optional Add-Ins:
- Vanilla (optional, but we love it!)
- Cinnamon, also optional, but recommended!
- Any flavor extract you want (think banana, lemon, etc.)
- Chocolate chips
- Fruit (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples!)
- Whatever you want! What did we miss?
