These easy, low-carb keto pancakes are fluffy, soft and absolutely delicious. Rather than using grain flours, almond and coconut flour are subbed in to reduce the total net carbs.
Who wants pancakes?
If I was to be embodied into pancakes… these would be the best representation. They’re so forking good.
This recipe took some time to perfect, as the pancakes kept coming out too dense and heavy.
Not exactly what you want in pancakes.
So, in my quest to bring you all the best keto pancakes, I tested and re-tested this recipe multiple times. It took much trial and error and I found myself eating pancakes for almost every meal (such a sacrifice 😉 ).
I was absolutely determined to come up with a recipe that was light and fluffy, but also super simple to make.
I tried out every trick in the book for light, airy keto pancakes, and once I felt I had finally gotten it right, I called over my trusty recipe testers (a.k.a my housemates) to see what they thought.
They loved them. I was over the moon.
I’ve had trouble with almond flour pancakes in the past. They have a wonderful flavour but they keep coming out dense and heavy, with a gritty texture.
Here’s the secret to perfect keto pancakes…
I knew there just had to be a way to make them light and fluffy, like regular pancakes. So I turned to my favourite kitchen appliance: my blender.
Using a blender makes it so much easier to aerate the mixture, giving the pancakes a light and airy texture, while also removing a lot of the grittiness.
The first time I made these keto pancakes, I spent about half an hour hand whisking the batter to try and get enough air into the mixture. My arm was exhausted and the whisking still didn’t give as much aeration as my blender. So I have to say hands down, skip the whisk when making pancakes and just grab your blender instead!

High-Fat Low-Carb (HFLC) Keto Coconut Pancakes
The search is over! These are some of the best keto pancakes you’ll ever make! They’re light, fluffy and so easy to whip together. The whole family will love ’em.
When it comes to keto pancakes, keep them on the smaller side so that they’re easier to flip in the pan. Also, if you find your batter thickens too much, just add a little more coconut milk (or almond milk) to the mix and blend again until smooth.
- 4 pasture-raised eggs
- 3/4 cup coconut milk (or almond milk)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- Coconut oil for frying
For the Compôte and Garnish:
- 200g fresh or frozen berries
- 200g full-fat coconut cream
- Warm the berries in a small saucepan on low heat and once they release their juices, let them simmer gently for about 10 minutes or until slightly softened.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- In a large blender, add the eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend to combine (approx. 30 seconds), then add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and sea salt and blend again until smooth and airy. Let the batter rest 5-10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat a large stainless steel pan over medium-low heat and add a little coconut oil. Swirl it around to coat the bottom of the pan.
- Add about 2-3 tbsp of batter for each pancake and spread into a circle. Once you see bubbles appearing on the surface of the pancake, flip it over. Each side should be a light golden brown colour.
- Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the pan as needed.
- Top each pancake with coconut cream and spoon over the berry compôte as desired before serving. Enjoy!!
