Keto Pancakes that are this delicious bring back vivid childhood memories of waking up on Sunday morning to my dad making us homemade pancakes.
I love hot pancakes with butter and cold syrup. Yes, cold syrup. There is just something amazing that happens in your mouth when the hot pancakes meet the cold maple syrup and melted butter. Yummy! So you can imagine my horror when I switched to a low carb diet and suddenly I cannot enjoy my precious pancakes!
I am not one to make pancakes from scratch very often because I like to keep it easy and I hate standing at the stove for an hour flipping pancakes. These keto pancakes are so easy, I have made them 3 times this week!
My trick is to throw all of the ingredients into my single serve blender cup that came with my Ninja blender! I pulse it a few times, let the mixture sit for a minute while my skillet heats up, and then pour each pancake into the pan, straight from the blender cup. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
The ingredients in these keto pancakes recipe are not going to make a super fluffy pancake. Thats what makes these easy because they lack ingredients that would be needed to make them fluffy. Less ingredients = less work. I’m okay with that, and I actually find really fluffy pancakes get heavy in my tummy. Blech.
The lemon zest in these keto pancakes packs a huge punch of flavor without adding to the carb count…score! I know what you’re thinking…what am I going to do with this darn lemon now? Well, I would totally make my Roast Chicken with Lemon and Thyme! It is so amazing!
I have another low carb pancake recipe that uses protein powder for an extra protein punch. Check out my recipe for Protein Pancakes!
I eat these low carb pancakes slathered in butter and sugar free syrup. I’m on the hunt for a sucralose free, sugar free syrup…do you have a favorite?
