17 low-carb, keto pancake recipes to tantalize your taste buds.

Usually one of the highest carb breakfast options out there, pancakes are a staple that I truly missed when I began my high-fat, keto journey. If you’re following a high-fat, keto eating style, you do not have to say farewell to pancakes! There are so many other ways that we can make pancakes, using low-carb, keto ingredients, like coconut or almond flour, nut or seed butters, flax seed meal, and even pork rinds!

Since most pancake toppings, like syrup and honey, are out the window for us low-carb, keto folk, I’ve come to love many of the keto-friendly topping options available. In the past, I’ve used a dollop of keto whipped coconut cream, melted coconut butter, keto strawberry chia seed jam, coconut oil with cacao powder, keto dairy-free cream cheese, and keto espresso fudge protein butter, to dress my beloved keto pancakes.

With the help of my fellow bloggers and pals, I’ve collected 16 of the tastiest low-carb, keto pancake recipes to share with you all. Each keto recipe is so delicious; no one will even know that it’s keto!

  1. I love trying Keto pancake recipes but I still have to count macronutrients. So when the recipes don’t come with the breakdown it makes me hesitate to go to the effort of doing the calculations myself.

    • Hey, Carol! Some of these recipes are not my own so if the nutritional info isn’t included, you’ll have to calculate it yourself. For any of my recipes, you can find a link for the nutritional info underneath the “notes” section of the recipe. Hope this helps!

  2. Am I reading this wrong? It says coconut flour free but the first recipe has coconut flour. I’ve noticed that w several of your recipes bye, it will say egg free but it’s an omelette for instance.

    • I think you may be reading the description for my pork rind pancakes and mistaking it as the description for the coconut flour pancakes right below it. The first image and description in the list describes a coconut flour-free pancake recipe because it’s made of pork rinds :)

  3. Dear Leanne, I love you!

    Lol. That is to say. THANK YOU for posting this. They look amazing.
    I’ve actually made one of those recipes before (several times!) and it was so good. Can’t wait to make the others. Is it morning yet, so I can make one of these recipes?

    • Haha! You’re so welcome! Let us know if you try any of the recipes- I’d love to know how it goes for you! :)

  4. Thanks for sharing Leanne, great round-up! I can’t wait to try some of these. Mmmmm….pancakes :)
