Keto Recipe: Keto Pancakes Recipe (with cream cheese!)

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 8.40.14 PM

There are a bajillion keto pancakes floating out there on the web, so today I decided to mix up my own. I made this recipe based on memory of the terrible mixes I found online before, and tried to improve. I’d say I did because these came out great! Oh and pssst, this recipe is in my Keto Life Handbook / Cookbook!

Cream Cheese Keto Pancakes (4 net carbs)

  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2  to 1 packet of Stevia in the Raw (or whatever Stevia you like)
  1. Blend or beat together all of the ingredients until smooth.
  2. You’ll make two pancakes, so heat up a non-stick pan or skillet with butter or coconut oil on medium-high.
  3. Make them just like you would normal pancakes. Try to cook it most of the way on one side and then flip!
  4. Top with butter and/or a sugar-free maple syrup (check your labels, they aren’t all created equal!)

They will taste quite a bit like french toast!

Howard’s Maple Syrup is the only sugar-free syrup I could find that was also carb free. I’m not sure it’s actually syrup, but it’s still tasty!

Anyway, they tasted like FRENCH TOAST. So awesome. And no bread whatsoever and only about 2-4 carbs for the whole serving!

Would you be so kind as to post the macros?

Protein grams, fat grams and net carb grams ??

@SunshyneBrightly @ARMarone I basically logged everything in my fitness pal and for 1 serving, it's 375 calories, 30.4g of fat, 8.4g of carbs, 3.1g of fiber (so basically 5.3g of net carbs. It's written 4 in the recipe but maybe the cream cheese was different?) and 17g of protein!

I loved these. And more importantly my Mom loved them! She was recently diagnosed with cancer and transitioning her from her standard processed food loaded with sugar diet to a Keto has not been smooth. The first batch of keto pancakes I made she said "tasted like sh*t" and these she liked. Thank you! I will be trying more of your recipes out in the future (they look awesome!)

@goofypammy I DID use almond flour since I didn't have any coconut flour.  I did not experience them being crumbly.  Being heavy...I don't know.  I've since bought coconut flour so I'll see whether there's a difference. I did follow some other comments by adding a little vanilla, the 1/2 tsp baking powder, and some cinnamon.  I just know these are really really good!

Do you guys have a Pinterest page? It'd be super helpful for saving all these amazing recipes!

I really liked this recipe, but I had to add a small amount of salt so that they didn't taste so "flat". A chef or foodie wouldn't think of making anything along this line without adding a little salt. Also, I added a little plain grass-fed gelatin (about a Tbsp, I think) for structure and added protein. I'm going to try some of the other ideas next time around, but will be keeping this in my breakfast repertoire.

@KimberlyTuckerJohnson I have nothing against salt, but I don't find it necessary in this recipe, especially when cooked in salted butter. The less ingredients, the better for me! Glad you found your groove with it though. Keto on!

Awesome stuff! I cant believe that's its low carb! Great job developing this recipe!

I made these this morning.  Holy yum!  Added 1/2 tsp baking powder and a little heavy cream, pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon and topped it off with sugar free vanilla syrup.  Will definitely be making it again!

What an amazing recipe!!!! Love these pancakes. I did modify them just a bit by adding heavy cream a bit more coconut flour and 1/2 tsp of baking powder! I yield about three generous size pancakes and they are so tasty and fluffy! Thank you for offering to us such a lovely recipe!

It works by doubling, tripling, etc. the recipe without any problems. I look at the consistency of the batter so I add or decrease the amount of the coconut flour.

These were great.


I love crepes versus pancakes so I added a quarter tablespoon of baking powder to make them a little lighter/fluffy.

I also added a tablespoon of cold water right as I finished whisking (I used a whisk to introduce some air into the mixture versus blender)

I let the butter brown in the hot pan before pouring the mixture so it helped crisp the edges really well.


Finally I used a quarter of lemon and a half a tea spoon of Stevia for the topping versus the syrup.

I just hope I can stop at eating two!  Thank you for the recipe!!

@AnaisParis

OMG! I'd tried the lemon and stevia juice rather than pouring syrup over my pancakes and I must say, I will never use syrup again.  Who knew It would  taste so delicious.


Thanks Anais for sharing your alternate recipe to us readers.

Great recipe- I swapped almond flour for the coconut flour and it was amazing how similar this tasted to french toast! The almond flour did make them a little too soft, so maybe I'll do half/half next time. I hate to use only coconut flour as every time I use the stuff I taste only coconut and nothing else so I'm a bit wary.

Thanks for this- it made a great breakfast :)

@DaniellePriser Glad to hear it! The coconut definitely gives it a crisp. You could try subbing in whey protein powder too for a similar effect!

These are so awesome and easy! I added a little vanilla and flax seed to mine :-) I'm going to make a few more batches to keep and head up. (brilliant to mix with blender)

I just made these today and im must say they are divine. I cant believe something this delicious is low carb and calms my sweet tooth

reaper_x_303

Wait sorry i read that wrong but i had a question. A keto diet you should keep it under 50 net carbs a day right?

wickedstuffed
wickedstuffed moderator

@reaper_x_303 Keto is typically 20 carbs, but the main goal is to stay in ketosis, and some of us can have up to 50 and stay in ketosis. As a rule, I'd say 20 though. 

wickedstuffed

@reaper_x_303 Everybody is different, really, 20 is typically the general rule, but it's all about staying in ketosis. If you can eat 50 net carbs and stay in ketosis, then that's fine too. I usually do 30-40 these days, but all veggie carbs.

reaper_x_303
reaper_x_303

So this recipe is only 2-4 carbs per serving?

These look amazing! Can i use almond flour instead of coconut oil? And if so how much should i use? Thank you

wickedstuffed
wickedstuffed moderator

@GuySidon Yes you could sub in almond flour for coconut flour just fine. It's such a small amount, that you could do it at the same amount.

I attempted these this morning(doubled the recipe) but the pancakes kept falling apart on the pan :( not entirely sure how to fix this

wickedstuffed

@the_influenxe Hmmmm, was the pan well-oiled, etc? I've doubled and tripled the recipe before with no probems, but I have had trouble on bad pans before!

Do you know the net carbs?

@pmctee Yep! About 4 net carbs (depending on your ingredients - some cream cheeses are higher).

Hi, what could I substitute the cream cheese with ?...would you say coconut milk, thick part from a can would work ?

WickedStuffed
WickedStuffed

It might be hard to find a good cream cheese substitute, I don't think coconut milk would be solid enough to work, although I don't have a better recommendation!

wickedstuffed
wickedstuffed moderator

@Annie Hébert Hm, not quite sure on that, the cream cheese is the major holder together of everything in this particular recipe and I'd think the coconut milk (too carby for me) wouldn't hold up. If you try, let me know!

@Annie Hébert 

you can use the fake cream cheese, but usually contains more carbs. I'm going dairy free also...4 weeks now made 2 "cheese" cakes so far from home made hemp milk made into yogurt then into soft cheese ( just hang in a cheese bag to drip off liquid) hemp can be bitter though and thankfully the chocolate masked the flavor. today I'm trying almond milk (i make my own in kitchen aide and do not strain so the fiber is in tact) then making yogurt ( I use my dehydrator set to 110 then straining in the nut ag to make cheese) its not as tangy or salty as cream cheese but will give the same consistancy. hope this helps. - Debbie.

@Annie Hébert I use goat cheese (chevre') . . . works great.
