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.

Instructions
  1. Melt the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds and then whisk together with the heavy cream.
  2. Once cooled add in the two eggs, vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!

    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…?

    Hi Shahil,
    Fist.. every recipe I have tried has been amazingly delicious.
    Can this pancake recipe be refrigerated before cooking? Is so, how long?

      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?

    Thank you

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚ hope that helps.

    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.

    Hi Sahil
    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.

      Honestly it’s quite filling with butter and syrup. But depending on your macros you can have more.
