Ahhh, pancakes all week long just for me and you too! I’ve been enjoying these small batch pancakes to mix up my breakfast choices. Each pancake is under 2 carbs each!

My usual breakfast consists of coffee and sometimes yogurt with sugar free blueberry sauce or a strawberry coconut smoothie later in the morning.

Since my first meal is never before 10 a.m., there are times when I want a hearty meal that won’t weigh me down. These low carb pancakes hit the spot perfectly!

The cinnamon is a nice addition to pancakes. It’s flavorful and smells so good while cooking too.

How Coconut Flour is Different from Other Flour Types

Coconut flour looks and feels like regular wheat flour, but that&rsquos where the similarity ends.

It has an appealing coconut scent, and because it is very absorbent, it requires more liquids than you would use to make a regular pancake batter.

A coconut flour pancake recipe also uses more eggs than wheat flour pancakes. If you try substituting eggs with milk or water, your pancake mix will fall apart once it hits the pan.

Aside from its handling, coconut flour has a rich texture and natural sweetness, meaning your keto coconut flour pancakes won&rsquot need a lot of sweetening. It also has a lower glycemic index than traditional flours, making it ideal for keeping your blood sugar down.

Its lack of gluten and rich protein content makes it suitable for anyone on a grain-restrictive diet.

Hey, I was wondering what I could swap with Almond flour?

Check out our guide to Low Carb and Keto Baking, the Substitution section. 1 cup of almond flour can be substituted for 1/3 cup of coconut flour

I used oat flour and it tasted great

Hi, Delia! Be sure to use oat fiber, not oat flour. The fiber is made from the hull, which is not actually part of the grain, while oat flour is made from grains.

These tasted and smelled absolutely nasty. Like unseasoned eggs that had gone slightly bad with a hint of lemon (I skipped the blueberries), and the consistency was like an omelette, but less smooth and fluffy. I was really looking forward to pancakes for breakfast, what a disappointment.

So sorry these didn't work out for you! If you decide to try again, I would ensure that all your ingredients are fresh. That could possibly make a difference for you.

Hi Lisa I am from Australia too, how do you find diet doc menus, I use flax seed meal I think coles has it

I winged it: I live rural in N. Europe so not everything is available here. I set it down to 45g of psyllium husk instead of oat flour and increased the almond flour to 95g. I used lemon juice because lemons are out of season. I knew it would be thick, so I added 100ml of cream. Made 8 thick and delicous pancakes *and* a loaf of bread--my solution because I didnt have all day to keep making pancakes. 10/10, would fight someone over.

I am glad you were able to adjust these to work with the ingredients you had access to. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Kerry, is there any replacement with oat fiber? I can not find it in the local market here. We only have all sorts of oat flour, and I knew it is not a replacement. I didn't buy it.

Unfortunately there is not a good replacement for oat fiber. Most people order it online. Look for Lifesource brand from Netrition or Amazon.

Low Carb Pancake Recipe with CarbQuik with Video

NOTE FROM ANDREW: This CarbQuik Pancakes recipe, direct from CarbQuik’s manufacturer, Tova Industries, claims to make 20 pancakes and yes, you can get 20 NORMAL sized pancakes from this recipe.

Some people are saying they make much less than 20 but I think those people are used to the SUPER SIZE, high carb pancakes you get at IHOP that are the size of a plate!

I was able to get about 15 normal sized (about 4 inches) pancakes from a batch and they tasted great. So for most people, this recipe will make 15-20 pancakes. That means the net carb count will be more like 4-5 net carbs per serving, not the 3 net carbs as listed below. BUT that is still much less than regular pancakes and with CarbQuik, low carbers are able to enjoy great tasting pancakes.

Low carb pancakes are finally possible with Carbquick Low-Carb Baking Mix. CarbQuik pancakes are a great substitute for your low-carb lifestyle.

While these low-carb pancakes aren’t something you should indulge in every morning, when you want a special breakfast that doesn’t knock you off the low-carb wagon, CarbQuik is your answer. Here’s the recipe straight from CarbQuick see the comments below and the note above for CarbSmart’s practical advice.

Coconut Flour Pancakes vs Almond Flour Pancakes

I tried some with coconut flour that were horrid. I mean, truly horrid. Coconut flour is great, just not in keto pancakes.

All the coconut flour pancakes I tried came out dry and the texture was just too far from a regular pancake.

My next foray into low carb pancakes was with almond flour. I tried some where you whip egg whites into stiff peaks and fold in they almond flour.

And they tasted like weird fluffy egg whites with syrup. Again, they just didn’t taste like a REAL pancake.

I eventually decided to try my own almond flour version based off of regular pancake measurements with added cream cheese.

However, I threw it in the blender to smooth out the batter since the ingredients are a little different.

I nervously poured out enough batter for my first keto pancake and it looked pretty good.

I took it out of the pan, slathered it with butter and hit it with a dab of my personal favorite sugar-free syrup and JACKPOT.

Jorge seriously gobbled up the entire first batch before I had eaten more than a couple of bites myself!

He was so impressed that these Low Carb Pancakes didn’t taste like anything other than regular pancakes.

So I decided to try them out on my toughest critics, Ellie and Lyla.

If two almost 3 year olds like them, then they truly pass the keto pancake test!

I topped their pancakes with butter and regular syrup and set them down without saying a word.

They gobbled them up and were quickly trying to steal bites off of our plates!

Low-Carb Pancakes (Soy Powder)

Simply mix together all the ingredients with a whisk - batter may be a bit runny. Cook on a lightly greased skillet as you would any pancake recipe. Drop batter on surface large spoonfuls. Cook until each side is lightly browned.

Serve with butter and a low-carb store bought syrup. Or for an interesting low-carb topping, mix 1 Tablespoon of sugar-free jam with 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons water and microwave for 45 seconds.

There's only about 6 grams of carbs in these pancakes made primarily of protein powder and sour cream.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank CurbingCarbs for this recipe.

We have enjoyed the pancakes made to the above recipe. We purchased some banana flavored protein powder for use as a shake and substituted that for plain soy powder. Adding walnuts it made great banana walnut pancakes.

I don't get it. Why use soy and add dairy?

I've made this recipe several times and I am always happy with the results. Great for those of us with celiac disease (gluten free) and even though I don't have to eat low carb, I prefer to for health reasons. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Supplement soy powder with your own Protein Powder, and get a real kick from this recipe. Tastes like those homemade recipes, but healthier!

Pleasantly surprised! We're just watching carbs for weight. I added cinnamon, cloves, a little wheat bran and ground flax. Added a little cream to dilute it. Delicious! Thanks. this is, by far, the best pancake recipe out there.

Thank you for this fabulous recipe. I started a low carb diet and don't miss my pancake. I even spiced it up with vanilla, cinnamon and splenda for sweets. GREAT RECIPE.

Excellent! I have gestational diabetes and this doesn't raise my blood sugar at all. I substitute vanilla whey protein powder. I get about 5 pancakes out of this recipe and it makes me feel like I'm eating a bunch. Thanks so much for this recipe.

These pancakes are fabulous! I used vanilla flavored whey protein powder instead of soy. They tasted just like crepes. We experimented with sugar free syrup, rolled with cream cheese and sugar free strawberry jam (like a blintze), and fresh strawberries with whipped cream (like a Belgian waffle). My 19 year-old daughter started a low carb program a few days ago to take off the freshman 15 and she could not be more excited about the possibility of pancakes!

For some healthy carbs you can also add 2 tablespoons of Quaker rolled oats. I made this recipe this AM, before I saw this website. :) I don't have sour cream, but I saw a reviewer used plain yogurt. I think next time I will add a spoonful to the batter.

I haven't had these pancakes before but I am going to give it a shot someday. I am getting into the soy world.

The best pancakes. I tried a couple of different low carb recipes. none came close. Very good paired with sugar-free syrup.


Here is a nice treat for all fluffy Carbquick pancake lovers. Just the right pancake, as a special treat for those on low carb diets now and then!

I have tried all most all of the pancakes, but to be honest, I never got the best result. Most of the pancakes were not come out with the desired fluffiness or taste. I used the Carbquik baking mix, and I was shocked by the taste and the texture of the Carbquik pancakes. The Carbquik pancake recipe, which is given below, will blow your mind with its unique taste texture. Get the best Carbquik Pancakes Recipe!
