Low Carb Pancakes
Everyone loves a good low carb pancake mix, and I love a good low carb pancake recipe. I find low carb pancake mixes to be expensive, so I mix up my own mix and use it anytime I want keto pancakes.
I started making the dry portion of mixes in bulk and storing them in glass containers so that my family could easily make the things they love when I was traveling.
Since then, we tend to keep this low carb pancake mix recipe close so that we always have pre-made mix on hand.
As a bonus, these keto pancakes only need a few ingredients that most people living a low carb lifestyle have on hand.

Low Carb Pancake Mix
All low carb pancake mixes are simply the dry ingredients combined. You always have to add the wet ingredients like eggs, oil, etc.
By making it yourself you can keep as much or as little as you want on hand.
Also, it's saves quite a bit of money if you are making low carb pancakes every week.
We like to make up a couple batches of low carb pancakes and keep them in the freezer for busy mornings. My girls pull them out and re-heat them for a delicious homemade breakfast.
How long can I store low carb pancake mix?
This low carb pancake mix can be stored in an airtight container (or glass container) for up to three months at room temperature.
It may stay fresh longer, but I wouldn't know because we usually griddle our way through the low carb pancake mix before then.
For store bought low carb pancake mixes, always check the expiration date printed on the box.
Can I use an egg substitute in low carb pancakes?
I have used flax-egg and chia seed egg in these low carb pancakes before. They are delicious, but they don't get the same rise as you would if you used eggs.

How to make low carb pancakes
- Mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl then transfer to an airtight container if you are saving it for later. Don't forget to label your container with the date.
- When you are ready to make low carb pancakes: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar-free maple flavored syrup, vanilla, and sugar-free dairy-free milk.
- Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until smooth. If you mixed up more than one batch of low carb pancake mix, measure out approximately 1.5 cups + 1 tablespoon of mix. In weight that's about 180 g.
- Spoon ¼ cup of prepared low carb pancake batter onto a medium hot griddle and cook until the edges start to brown and bubbles form.
- Flip low carb pancakes over and cook until brown and cooked through.
- Always check for doneness before you remove your pancake from the pan or griddle.
- Serve these keto pancakes hot.
Always follow the recipe first. Don't work with substitutions until you know how the recipe works. Once your batter is ready, heat your pan or electric griddle and start making your paleo pancakes.
Low Carb Pancakes Almond Flour
These are the best low carb pancakes using almond flour. Remember when measuring almond flour to spoon your flour into your measuring cup, then level it.
Do not dip your measuring cup into the flour then level, it will be too much almond flour.
Low Carb Pancakes with an electric griddle vs. a pan
You don't need an electric griddle to make keto pancakes but I find that it's way easier. For one, you don't oil an electric griddle. It's non-stick.
Also, the heat tends to stay even throughout the griddle whereas with a pan the heat might fluctuate. Also, you can make 6-8 low carb pancakes at once on an electric griddle.
Can I freeze low carb pancakes?
Yes, you can freeze low carb pancakes. Always bring your low carb pancakes to room temperature first, before you freeze them.
After they are at room temperature you can store them in an airtight container or a zip lock bag for up to three months.
Some people like to place pieces of wax paper or parchment paper between each pancake. I don’t find you need to.
Ingredients you'll always find in our pantry:
