These low carb pancakes are super easy to make and adhere to a keto diet. Gluten and grain free.

Are you trying a low carb or ketogenic diet to lose weight or improve your health? These low carb pancakes are super easy to make and adhere to a keto diet.

Low carb pancakes can really be hit or miss. I’ve never loved any of the pre-made mixes I’ve tried, so I created my own recipe.

If you’ve had banana pancakes, low carb pancakes use a similar method. Eggs are used as the binder, but cream cheese is used instead of bananas.

If you need a bit of sweetness to your breakfast, you can add a bit of stevia. Many people also add cinnamon and vanilla extract. These ingredients are all optional.

This recipe will make enough pancakes for 3 people to have 2 pancakes each. You can also make them, then refrigerate them and heat them up in the morning for breakfast by quickly warming them on a pan. Freeze them for longer term storage.

If you don’t feel up to making your own keto pancakes, you can also buy pancake mix on Amazon!
