Low Carb & Keto Friendly!
I have the best fans! We don’t get a lot of Keto friendly products in India. The market here is different and while it’s growing the range of products are more in keeping with Indian tastes and eating habits. So things like Keto bacon, beef jerky, maple syrup etc are a far away dream. I go back to the time I made when I did a series of Keto waffle recipes. I not only made almond flour waffles but coconut flour waffles and peanut butter waffles as well. It was at this point that most of my international viewers were talking about pouring sugar free and Keto friendly maple syrup over their waffles and enjoying them. It was at this point I had to let people know we didn’t get Keto friendly maple syrup in India. Enter HK friends, Robert and Nancy Boyer who contacted me and sent me not 1 but two bottles of sugar free, Keto friendly maple syrup all the way from the USA.
I cannot say thank you enough to Rober and Nancy, but THANK YOU! They sent this to me back in April 2018 and well I’ve been sitting on it since then and haven’t opened them. I guess it was time and that’s why I am here today. We’re going to be making some Keto pancakes with coconut flour so that I can finally crack open that bottle and use that Keto friendly maple syrup.
It’s not really Maple syrup
Food awareness is a real thing. Lots of people are in the dark about a lot of things and it’s not really their fault. It’s just the way it is. I better very quickly clear up the fact that this isn’t really maple syrup and nor is it a Keto maple syrup. It’s actually a MAPLE FLAVOURED syrup. This is because just like honey or sugar itself, maple syrup is just a kind of sugar. So they extract that flavour and use it. The one I have (Lakanto brand) is sweetened with monkfruit and I have to say it tastes pretty damn good!
If you don’t have access to sugar free, maple flavoured syrup like I now do (thanks to Robert and Nancy) then you can just top your pancakes with some butter. You can also make your own peanut butter syrup by using all natural peanut butter, some sweetener of choice and some water to thin it out. I’m sure there are plenty of things you can do.

Coconut Flour Pancakes
- 25 grams Coconut Flour I use this one
- 50 grams Cream Cheese I recommend this one
- 50 grams Butter You can use salted or Unsalted, your choice. I use salted. Try this one
- 50 grams Heavy Whipping Cream I recommend this
- 3 Eggs
- 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder Try this one
- 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract Try this one
- 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon Powder Try this one
- a pinch of salt
- First sift the coconut flour along with the baking powder and then add the cinnamon powder and salt and mix them together.
- Then melt the butter and cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds and then add in the cream and whisk together.
- Once the mixture has cooled a bit, add in the 3 eggs, vanilla extract and 2-3 drops of stevia.
- Then add the dry ingredients in with the wet ones and whisk together till a smooth batter is formed.
- Heat a non stick pan and use some olive oil spray or you can also heat some butter or coconut oil and then ladle in the pancake batter.
- Cook on a medium flame. You will see bubbles in the batter. I like to cover it with a lid and let it cook for 3-4 minutes and then flip it over. This way the top cooks as well and then when you flip it batter doesn't fly all over.
- Once cooked, remove from the pan and serve with whatever suits your fancy. I used some Maple flavoured sugar free syrup and butter.
