THE BEST KETO CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES
Whether it's the weekend or the middle of the week, these cream cheese pancakes are the best way you can start your day.
And, as most of you know, I have made a ton of delicious keto pancake recipes - like these keto banana pancakes, these almond flour pancakes, and these 1 minute pancakes - but the flavor of these cream cheese pancakes might just be my favorite.
They're deliciously rich and buttery with the perfect amount of sweetness. And, as I mentioned earlier, these low carb pancakes taste pretty darn close to the buttermilk ones you could get at a diner.
However, these have just 2 NET CARBS per pancake! With that said, I like to "dress" mine up a bit with some salted butter, my 0 carb keto maple syrup, and some berries. Gah, just writing this is getting me hungry for breakfast.
Best of all, these keto cream cheese pancakes are super quick and easy to make. You only need about 15 minutes and a few basic keto ingredients to whip them up!
Now, these cream cheese pancakes are made with basic keto ingredients and pantry staples.
So if you've been following some of my recipes, there's a good chance you have almost everything you need.
Here's what you'll need for the pancakes:
- 4 eggs
- 3 tbsp blanched almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 cup + 1 tbsp cream cheese
- 2 tbsp granulated erythritol
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Just under ½ cups almond milk
- 2 ¼ tbsp coconut oil, melted
- Vanilla extract
And to top them off:
- No Carb Maple Syrup
So you can get everything you need for a week of easy keto breakfasts in one grocery trip!
FLOURS TO USE FOR THESE KETO PANCAKES
As you might have noticed, this recipe is made with both almond flour and coconut flour. These flours make the pancakes gluten free and give them just the right balance of moist and fluffy.
That said, if you don't want to use almond flour - or are allergic - you can swap it out with an equal amount of walnut flour or sunflower seed flour and get the same effect.
Having said that, as I've mentioned many times before, it's important that you DO NOT try to use more coconut flour in place of almond flour.
Since coconut flour is so absorbent, using more than you need will dry out your pancake batter, and ruin the texture and flavor of these pancakes.
SWEETENING THESE KETO PANCAKES
So, to make these keto cream cheese pancakes sugar free, we'll be using a couple of tablespoons of granulated erythritol.
As always, my go-to keto friendly sweetener is Granular Swerve. It's completely sugar-free, has 0 calories, and has the exact same sweetness level as regular sugar.
Another great option you can use is Lakanto's Monk Fruit Sweetener. It also has 0 carbs and 0 calories and is an excellent sugar substitute as far as sweetness level goes.
Of course, you can't have pancakes without syrup! So for drizzling on these pancakes, I highly recommend my sugar free maple syrup recipe. It has the perfect silky texture and sweet maple flavor that makes it practically indistinguishable from the real thing - you'll love it!
HOW TO MAKE KETO CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES
Again, these keto pancakes couldn't be easier to make. All it takes is some mixing, pouring, and flipping.
All told, it should only take about 15 minutes to make a few stacks of delicious cream cheese pancakes.
So, let's get into the kitchen and get started on these pancakes!
STEP 1: MAKING THE PANCAKE BATTER
First, you'll want to start by whisking your eggs and granulated erythritol together in a medium-sized bowl.
Once mixed, add in your cream cheese, almond milk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract and whisk everything to combine.
Next, add your dry ingredients into the same bowl – that's your almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder.
Then, stir all of the ingredients together until you get a smooth and creamy pancake batter.
STEP 2: COOKING THE PANCAKES
Alright, now take out a non-stick pan and bring it to low heat on the stovetop. Then coat the surface with a little baking spray, butter, or coconut oil.
Once the surface is heated, add a ¼ cup of batter to the center of the pan - this will make you about 4 medium-sized pancakes. However, you can adjust the amount of batter you pour if you want to make them bigger.
Also, if you want your pancakes to be totally uniform in size, you can use a 10 cm round mold on the pan.
Now, cook your pancakes until bubbles form and pop, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until they're nicely golden brown on both sides.
STEP 3: SERVING YOUR KETO CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES
After you've cooked all of your pancakes, transfer them to a plate and dress them up with your favorite keto friendly toppings.
I added a slab of butter, my homemade no carb maple syrup, and a couple of fresh blueberries and raspberries to my keto cream cheese pancakes.
Once they're topped off, serve and enjoy!
STORING CREAM CHEESE KETO PANCAKES
Again, this low carb cream cheese pancakes recipe makes about 8 pancakes, so you can whip them up for a family breakfast, brunch – or even dinner - and save the rest for a quick meal you can enjoy throughout the week.
And if you want to have more to eat and save, you can easily double or triple this recipe!
To store your leftover pancakes, place a piece of parchment paper between each pancake to prevent them from sticking to each other, and keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
And to reheat, you can warm them up on low heat on the stovetop or microwave them for about 10 seconds. If you're reheating a stack of pancakes in the microwave, just add a few extra seconds for each additional pancake.
FREEZING THESE KETO PANCAKES
One of my favorite things to do is make a big, big batch of these keto cream cheese pancakes and freeze a bunch of them.
Then I have a super quick and insanely delicious meal on hand all the time!
You can freeze your leftover pancakes for up to 2 months! And whenever you want to enjoy one, all you have to do is heat it up and dig in.
Here is the best way to freeze and reheat the pancakes.
