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
A sweet breakfast treat.
- 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!
Sahil MakhijaNovember 9, 2018 at 3:06 am
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!
MichelleNovember 11, 2018 at 3:20 pm
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!
KatinaNovember 16, 2018 at 2:05 pm
Made these pancakes for my family and they were a hit! Keep up the great work.
annieNovember 28, 2018 at 4:51 pm
where did you get the sugar free maple syrup ?
Sahil MakhijaNovember 28, 2018 at 6:25 pm
A fan sent it to me from the USA.
ririFebruary 11, 2019 at 7:35 am
i bought it from iherb using code ANC5184
i just tried the original maple flavor and its amazing .
AnaghaNovember 30, 2018 at 6:42 am
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…?
Sahil MakhijaDecember 3, 2018 at 4:53 am
Amul Cream is fine and what I use.
JinalDecember 3, 2018 at 11:46 pm
Hi Sahil, what is the substitute of eggs?
Sahil MakhijaDecember 4, 2018 at 3:17 am
There is none I’m afraid.
DanaDecember 11, 2018 at 2:21 pm
You could try a flax egg. Just google it.
Anita ThomasJanuary 5, 2019 at 11:18 pm
Waffles – love the crispy, crunch of a great waffle.
BarbaraJanuary 22, 2019 at 4:48 pm
Fist.. every recipe I have tried has been amazingly delicious.
Can this pancake recipe be refrigerated before cooking? Is so, how long?
Sahil MakhijaJanuary 23, 2019 at 4:59 am
Yes you can keep it for a couple of days actually I think.
TeresaFebruary 15, 2019 at 10:35 pm
Which is best, coconut or almond flour pancakes?
Sahil MakhijaFebruary 16, 2019 at 2:42 am
Well since I don’t enjoy nuts that much I preferred the coconut flour ones.
Eric KrebesMarch 13, 2019 at 6:09 pm
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?
Sahil MakhijaMarch 14, 2019 at 3:13 am
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.
Roxy SantiagoApril 6, 2019 at 2:25 pm
You are awesome, I love the pancakes. I used the cinnamon and was perfect. Thanks for making enjoyable and easy to learn.
BarbaraApril 8, 2019 at 6:07 pm
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.
SusanannMay 20, 2019 at 4:51 pm
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.
Sahil MakhijaMay 21, 2019 at 2:10 am
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.
J.J.July 25, 2019 at 9:59 pm
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!
Sahil MakhijaJuly 26, 2019 at 1:35 am
yes it’s possible. Just start with a tabelspoon and add more if you need
J.J.July 29, 2019 at 7:20 pm
Thanks very much, I’ll be giving this a try this weekend. 🙂
EviLMinDNovember 6, 2019 at 9:19 am
Today i find your blog and its amaizinggg.. 🙂
I just wanna know one 🙂 did u eat just one portion? It’s too small…?
Sahil MakhijaNovember 6, 2019 at 9:49 am
Honestly it’s quite filling with butter and syrup. But depending on your macros you can have more.
DanJanuary 7, 2020 at 6:41 pm
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.
Sahil MakhijaJanuary 8, 2020 at 3:27 am
Yes it can be substituted no problemo.
VeronaFebruary 7, 2020 at 3:07 pm
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?
Sahil MakhijaApril 20, 2020 at 3:30 am
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.
Julie DarcyJune 26, 2020 at 2:03 am
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?
Sahil MakhijaJune 26, 2020 at 4:00 am
Sure, can also use coconut milk/cream
JitinderJuly 28, 2020 at 2:01 am
Can the batter or the pancakes be frozen or kept in the fridge?
JitinderJuly 28, 2020 at 1:27 pm
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!
AssylFebruary 1, 2021 at 9:10 pm
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.
