Keto Pancake FAQs
Nut flours are the best option as they are far lower in carbs than an all-purpose flour.
Berries, unsweetened whipped cream, and butter are all great toppers for keto pancakes.
These can be made ahead. Simply cool. Then freeze. Reheat when you are ready to serve in the microwave or toaster.
Almond flour. It is finer, and will give you the best texture for these pancakes.
What Do You Put On Keto Pancakes?
Just because my pancakes are keto friendly does not mean you don’t get to enjoy the versatility in pancake topping options. There are many great keto friendly toppings that provide a great marriage of flavors with keto pancakes.
Toppings for Keto Pancakes:
- Peanut Butter
- Sugar-free jam
- Low carb syrup
All of these topping would pair nicely with my keto pancake recipe. Now all you have to do is decide whether you are in the mood for a sweeter or more savory topping.
Are Gluten Free Pancakes Low Carb?
Although keto pancakes are gluten free too, not all gluten free pancakes are keto friendly and necessarily low carb.
Some gluten free flours can contain a good amount of carbs, actually. Which means you want to be selective about which flours you use, a nut flour is a great option when you want both gluten free and low carb!
That’s what makes these keto pancakes such a win. They are both gluten free and low carb!
What Can You Eat for Breakfast on Keto?
Well one obvious option is my keto pancakes.
Typically, when you think of breakfasts for a keto friendly diet, pancakes, waffles, cereal don’t make the list because they have such a high carb content.
Eggs probably come to mind. Like these egg muffins.
However, you are not limited to eggs. In fact, these keto pancakes are perfect because they look and taste like your carb filled favorites, but without all the extra carbs because you use a nut flour, a low carb sweetener, etc.
What Can You Eat For Breakfast Besides Eggs On A Low Carb Diet?
There are plenty of other things to eat for breakfast besides eggs. Eggs or egg muffins are an obvious choice because they are a low carb, high protein option with a healthy dose of fat. But there are several other options.
The important thing to keep in mind is to find dishes that are low carb and high protein.
These Keto pancakes fit well into this category and are a great canvas for other keto friendly foods like berries, peanut butter or bacon. All these ingredients pair nicely with pancakes. And who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast foods?
I particularly love this recipe because the ingredients aren’t too far out there or require shopping at a specialty store. Most regular grocery stores offer coconut or almond flour options now.
Are Pancakes Healthy?
Keto pancakes are a lot healthier than your traditional pancake. That is why I get so excited about this recipe.
Traditional pancakes are high in fat, calories, and sodium. On a positive note, they do provide a variety of vitamins though.
However, overall I would say that the classic pancake is not that good for you.
If you are looking for less carbs in your life but not less home cooked goodness, try my keto pancakes. They have added protein, lower carbs, and a lot of things that make them a much healthier alternative. So even if you aren’t eating low carb, they make for a great breakfast option that is wholesome.
Is Almond Milk Okay On A Keto Diet?
Almond milk is totally keto friendly, but this pancake recipe does not call for any. If you feel like the batter is too thick, or you want a thinner batter, you could use almond milk to thin the pancakes down.
It’s also nice to wash down a sweet pancake with some milk. Almond milk is a great and healthy option.
No need to worry. You can have almond milk when sticking to a keto diet. So, don’t hesitate. Make yourself some keto pancakes and wash them down with a cool glass of almond milk.
Is Almond Flour Good For Keto?
Yes! Nut flours are great for Keto because they are high in protein and low in carbs.
This recipe uses both almost and coconut flour in these keto pancake recipes.
The idea is to use a nut flour instead of a wheat flour, the carb content is considerably lower, and the protein content higher.
Is Almond Flour Low In Carbs?
Almond flour only has about 24 grams of carbs in a cup of flour, which is a lot lower compared to white flour. White flour has 96 grams of carbs in just one cup of flour, making its competitor, almond flour a great option for a keto diet.
How Long Does It Take To Get Into Ketosis?
If you are strictly following a keto diet you can get into ketosis as soon as 2 days of being on the diet. However, it can take some people as long as seven days.
There are many great keto friendly food options to eat from day to day, but one of my faves are these pancakes.
My keto pancakes taste good with so many different toppings that you could have them days in a row and feel like you are having a totally different breakfast experience from one day to the next.
Have keto pancakes with berries one day and pancakes with low carb syrup or peanut butter the next day. Endless options.
Or eat them with just butter, and you still won’t be disappointed.
