How to Make Keto Pancakes
We don’t have time to talk, we have keto pancakes to make. Let’s first look at what we will need to make these delicious pancakes for breakfast.
The ingredients for our keto pancakes are simple and possibly already have these items in your kitchen.
- Coconut Flour
- Cream Cheese
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Baking Soda
- Vanilla Extract
- Maple Extract
The one item that you may need to purchase is maple extract. Yes, you can totally make these low-carb pancakes without it, but the maple extract does play a huge role in making this pancake recipe explode with flavor.
Step by Step Instructions
Here are detailed instructions for making keto pancakes.
First, let’s make sure that our ingredients are prepped.
I prefer the whipped cream cheese. If you are using regular cream cheese, leave out to soften to room temperature. You can also soften cream cheese in the microwave for approximately 20 seconds in a Microsafe bowl.
Let’s get started. First up for the keto pancake mix, let’s put add the coconut flour, stevia, heavy whipping cream, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla extract and maple extract to a bowl and using a mixer or spatula, mix in with the softened cream cheese.
Get out your frying pan, we have low carb pancakes to make! I like to melt a little bit of butter in the pan before adding in the keto pancake mix, but that is a personal choice.
When your skillet is ready, drop in your pancake mixture. Let cook and then flip.
After the pancakes are ready, place on a plate and get ready to enjoy!
Remember, this is a keto breakfast so to keep it on the low carb, sugar free side of the world – we are going to add butter and a sugar free syrup.
That’s if you even want to add a syrup! Remember that maple extract we added, it helps create a rich flavor in these pancakes – so syrup is optional.

Tips for Making Keto Pancakes

I use a standard skillet. Before cooking, I melt a tad bit of butter in the pan for extra flavor.
Net Carbs in Pancakes
Wondering how many net carbs are in our low carb pancakes? There are 4 net carbs in pancakes.
Make in Large Batches
The recipe is for 2 regular size pancakes. That doesn’t mean you can’t 5x this and make enough for the whole family.
Reheating Keto Pancakes
Another reason to increase the ingredients and make a large batch of keto pancakes is so that you can save for later. Reheating low carb pancakes is simple. Just store in a airtight container in the refrigerator. When ready to eat, heat in microwave for 30 seconds.
Don’t Forget the Bacon
Come on, pancakes and BACON! Who said “dieting” had to be boring. This is legit.
