Low Carb Pancakes

Pancakes are a staple in breakfast recipe of America cuisine, but when you’re in a keto diet, making fluffy pancakes is not always possible until today.

Keto friendly flour are gluten free and doesn’t work in some recipes like regular flour. It can make the pancakes dry and and taste grainy because of the almond flour.

Thankfully after many attempts, I finally came up one that really is delicious, fluffy and low carb. It was kids and hubby approved all across the board. I hope you like too!

Eating low carb, I have learned there that sometimes to hard to substitute recipes for popular foods. After while, you just try and see if your tastes buds love it or not. I know some don’t like the texture of almond and rather use coconut or gluten flour as a replacement for it. There are so many options and I really trying new things.

Tips

  • Sift the almond flour. This makes the dry ingredients easily incorporate with the wet ingredients giving it an even distribution. After you’re done sifting your almond flour measure the amount on a scale to get an accurate reading.
  • Separate the egg whites and yolks. Make sure you beat the egg white separately when combining with the rest of the batter. Then when this done, add the egg whites gradually and stir gently to keep those air bubbles.
  • Alternative butter substitute. I usually use butter but this time around, I used vegan and dairy free butter. It came out great.
    • Nutiva Vegan Ghee is Set for Spreading and High-Heat Cooking.
    • Pure Blends Plant-Based Butter made with Avocado and Coconut Oils.
    • Smart Balance Buttery Spreads Really are Dairy-Free and Plant-Based.
    • Kite Hill Plant-Based Butter Alternative is a Cultured Almond Milk Spread
    • Earth Balance Organic Coconut or Pressed Oil Spread
