Red Velvet Pancakes or a Red Velvet Cake?
If you love red velvet anything you will love these red velvet pancakes. In fact I don’t know if this is a breakfast dish or a dessert but it’s definitely a sweet treat. I’ve done many pancake recipes on this channel. I started with almond flour pancakes, then coconut flour followed by chocolate chip pancakes and finally 3 ingredient Keto pancakes. But this time I decided to use a mix of coconut flour and almond flour to make a hybrid pancake.
But this recipe will work with any pancake batter, the idea is a plain vanilla pancake layered with delicious cream cheese frosting. OOhhhh Yeah!!
My tips and tricks!
Now I skipped the coco powder in this recipe which adds a bit of that chocolate flavour to the red velvet pancakes. But since I only had super dark cocoa powder it would definitely turn the pancakes a dark shade and almost maroon. I mean that happened when I made my red velvet cupcakes. They weren’t really red you know? So I skipped that in this recipe for a redder colour at the end.
I also used my blender to mix everything but honestly I think a bowl works just fine. It’s actually easier to get everything out of the bowl at the end. And don’t be scared to add a bit of water to thin out the mixture if it’s too thick. You can also turn these into waffles and if you have one of those mini waffle makers it will be PERFECT!
And finally use any sweetener you like the taste of. At the end of the day with Keto desserts the biggest hurdle is the sweetener. No matter how good the recipe is if you aren’t a fan of the artificial or natural sugar substitute you will not enjoy the dessert. So find one you like.

This recipe makes 10 servings. Get this recipe on myfitnesspal. The net weight of the frosting is about 350grams. So frost each pancake with about 35grams of icing to get 1 serving. You can for sure use more but that’s gonna be a LOT of calories for a single pancake.
Now if you make THE FULL CAKE like I did then that’s 1642 calories. So that is A LOT OF CALORIES!! So please EAT IN MODERATION. This is not a one sitting dessert or breakfast. Ideally you want to eat 1 pancake with 1 serving of frosting for say breakfast or a snack. That is about 298 calories. If you have a bigger appetite then at 596 calories you can eat 2 servings.
