Low carb Pancakes (keto)

Low carb Pancakes (keto)

I like to play around with new recipes so I decided to try out a low carb/keto pancake recipe 🙂 The aim here was to create a fluffy pancake with a normal texture and great flavour without being too heavy and brittle. I pleasantly surprised myself with this one!

These pancakes are light, fluffy and perfectly sweet.

I love the fact that they’re Keto-friendly too. (only 6.5g carbs per serving) The low carb content means that I don’t feel that heavy carb coma after a stack of these babies.

I used ground almonds and coconut flour as the main ingredients here instead of regular flour. They are nutty and fragrant as a result 🙂

Try adding a handful of blueberries to the pancake mix if you want to get fancy!
