Almond Flour Pancakes
More Keto Pancakes!!!
It wasn’t more than two days ago that I make Keto pancakes using coconut flour. And here I am today making them with almond flour. The reason is simple. Every time I make something with coconut flour I’m asked if it can be made with almond flour, and vice versa. So it just makes sense to do the same dish with both flours. The truth is they are not interchangeable and they react very differently. Coconut flour absorbs almost doublt the amount of moisture as almond flour does. Almond flour is basically just ground up almonds. So you do have to rework the recipe depending on which flour you use. So here are my Keto almond flour pancakes. Enjoy!
Fine Flour for Fine Pancakes
I was in quite a hurry to film this episode and I ran out of almond flour. Now believe it or not, the local stores don’t stock almond flour and the one that does only has the expensive one. The cheaper almond flours are sold online. It was impossible for me to order it and receive it in time to make this video. So I decided to make my own. I’m also very lazy. So instead of following my own recipe I just threw the almonds in a blender. This is actually absolutely fine, except that I didn’t grind it fine enough and I didn’t sift it and make a nice fine flour. In the end what that resulted in was a bit of a nutty pancake. Which as you saw, my father enjoyed. I personally prefer it less nutty. What’s your preference?
You can use almond flour to make my delicious Keto almond flour waffles.

Almond Flour Pancakes
- 100 grams Almond Flour I use this one
- 50 grams Heavy Whipping Cream I recommend this one
- 50 grams Cream Cheese I use this one
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder Try this one
- a pinch of salt
- 1 Tsp Pumpkin Spice Mix Optional Try this one
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract Try this one
- a few drops of Stevia You can also use powdered Erythritol or any Keto sweetener Try this one
- Melt the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds and then whisk together with the heavy cream.
- Once cooled add in the two eggs, vanilla extract and mix well.
- Then add in the dry ingredients. The almond flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin spice mix. And your batter is ready. You can add a bit of water/heavy cream if you want a runny batter.
- Heat a non stick skillet and spray with some olive oil. You can use coconut oil, butter or even bacon fat to cook as well.
- Ladle in the pancake batter and let it cook on 1 side. I like to cover with a lid and kind of let it steam and cook all around.
- Once cooked for about 2-3 minutes on 1 side on a medium heat, flip it over and cook on the other side till done.
- Serve with sugar free maple syrup and butter. (or any toppings of choice)
Thank you for all your great work, Sahil! I tried these today and I liked them! I find them a bit too dense to have a couple for breakfast but one as a dessert (which is how your dad seems to have viewed them) works very well.
Just wanted to point out that in the video you add some stevia but it is omitted in the written recipe.
Thanks again for all the horns-up inspiration!
Yeah, definitely, more than dense they are actually very calorie heavy at 200+ calories per pancakes so I can’t eat more than a single pancake in a sitting either. And thank you for pointing that out. I’ll edit the recipe asap!
Fabulous! They have a nice crispiness to them, which I love in a pancake. I added extra heavy cream as you suggested because I like a thinner batter. Deeelicious!
Made these pancakes for my family and they were a hit! Keep up the great work.
where did you get the sugar free maple syrup ?
A fan sent it to me from the USA.
i bought it from iherb using code ANC5184
i just tried the original maple flavor and its amazing .
Sahil, what is “heavy whipping cream”…? I can’t seem to find it in stores or online in India.. All I have is the Amul Fresh Cream…
Can you please specify a brand or a HWC sub…?
Amul Cream is fine and what I use.
Hi Sahil, what is the substitute of eggs?
There is none I’m afraid.
You could try a flax egg. Just google it.
Waffles – love the crispy, crunch of a great waffle.
Fist.. every recipe I have tried has been amazingly delicious.
Can this pancake recipe be refrigerated before cooking? Is so, how long?
Yes you can keep it for a couple of days actually I think.
Which is best, coconut or almond flour pancakes?
Well since I don’t enjoy nuts that much I preferred the coconut flour ones.
Hello, awesome recipes!! Thank you. Hey just regarding your almond flour pancakes; I see you have them at 6 carbs per pancake, but yet all the ingredients, other than the flour, are virtually carb free – so wondering why so many carbs per cake?
hey that’s 6 net and 3 total. Eggs have carbs, almond flour has carbs, cream cheese has carbs. Whipping cream has carbs. They are all low carb but they are not carb free 🙂 hope that helps.
You are awesome, I love the pancakes. I used the cinnamon and was perfect. Thanks for making enjoyable and easy to learn.
These are awesome! Second time I made this recipe..love them!! Thank You for this recipe
I made your bread yesterday but forgot the baking powder, I added some sesame seeds. I have to say it was fabulous. This was the coconut bread because it has less calories.
I also just found you but I already love your videos. I’m Canadian. I am also new to keto.
I tried making this almond pancake recipe but it did not turn out very well. The taste was good but it crumbled up when I tried to flip them over. I followed all the steps in your video but not sure where I went wrong.
Did your batter look like mine? Perhaps it could use an egg more if the egg size was smaller than what I use here. Sometimes things like that can affect the recipe.
Hello! Thanks for all the great recipes! Is it possible to use Swerve (erythritol) instead of drops of Stevia? If so, how much should I add of confectioners Swerve to the mix? Please let me know, and thanks again!
yes it’s possible. Just start with a tabelspoon and add more if you need
Thanks very much, I’ll be giving this a try this weekend. 🙂
Today i find your blog and its amaizinggg.. 🙂
I just wanna know one 🙂 did u eat just one portion? It’s too small…?
Honestly it’s quite filling with butter and syrup. But depending on your macros you can have more.
Hi there….do you think the Philly cream cheese can be substituted with Mascarpone cheese? Was just wondering as Mascarpone lends itself quite well to desserts like Tiramisu etc… so just had to ask.
Yes it can be substituted no problemo.
Horns up! How I’ve missed my morning pancakes. These were stellar. I can’t wait to share them with others. You’re the best! Keep up the great recipes.
Sahil, I really enjoy your videos and love for life and keto. I started your “Keto For Beginners” week 1 on March 13, 2020. By the 7th day, I did not want to eat the hamburger stir-fry and made taco Zucchini boats. Did I mess up too bad? That was around 2pm. Around 5:45, I had the last piece of curry chicken with some kale I had leftover from my family’s meal. Today is my 7th day and I have already prepped my meals for week 2. Did I alter the results by substituting?
As long as the zucchini was the taco you should be fine. It’s not an issue to substitute really. So you’ll be fine.
hi, I cannot eat full fat dairy. Cream etc. The light might be ok. But I wanted to check with you. Would yogurt be ok to use?
Sure, can also use coconut milk/cream
Can the batter or the pancakes be frozen or kept in the fridge?
Oh my goodness!!! I added cinnamon and clove (elachi) powder and turned these into chai flavoured pancakes. With lots of butter and sugar free syrup on top! Soooooo good!
Thank you very much for all your recipes!!!
I already cooked egg masala and stuffed mushrooms with your recipe. Was delicious.
I’m vegetarian and I love Indian food.
I want to add that you make more vegetarian keto main course videos.
Thank you and wish you happiness, success and creative inspiration.
