Because I received such overwhelming feedback on my last recipe, My favorite Low Carb Sugar Cookie Recipe, I thought I would throw you another keeper!
I know there are a ton of keto pancake recipes out there but I have reworked this recipe several times to get the net carb count down, while getting the flavor and texture as close to traditional flour pancakes as possible. Obviously, there are some differences and will likely always be. Having said that this are killer pancakes and my entire family looks forward to them most Sunday mornings (with a slab of thick cut, uncured bacon, of course)!
Low Carb Pancake Recipe (Cream Cheese)
I know people like to have the fewest ingredients as possible when cooking, but I think you truly need them all to make a tasty pancake.
TIP: To save on time, make a mix of all the dry ingredients and just measure it out each time!
10 oz cream cheese
1.25 cups almond flour
3 tbsp coconut flour
1/8 tsp liquid Stevia or Monkfruit (or other natural sweetener – be sure to use a conversion chart)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt (optional)
1 tsp gluten free baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Grass-fed butter as needed for grilling the pancakes
- Soften cream cheese to room temperature
- Add all ingredients to a blender (I use a Ninja).
- Blend until smooth (about 30 seconds)
- Heat griddle or skillet on medium.
- Add a tab of butter or other healthy oil to prevent the pancakes from sticking and to get a little extra fat in!
- Pour batter onto the griddle, making 3 inch pancakes. TIP: A small gravy ladle makes the perfect sized pancakes every time!
- Cook until the batter starts to bubble, then flip (estimated 2-3 mins per side)
Makes 6 servings of 4, 3-inch pancakes. I cook for three men and me so my batches are a little bigger than most.
I’m not ready for making my own sugar-free syrup quite yet so my go-to is Lakanto’s Maple Flavored Syrup.

*Note that I did not account for the butter used to oil the pan since it is optional.
Enjoy the recipe!
