After gaining about 14 pounds during the holidays (gasp, I know) I decided I wanted to change up my eating habits to shed the fluff. After literally dozens of cookies I had way more carbs than any one person should ever have, so I decided to cut way back on carbs and sugar.
I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to do a little tweaking to make it low-carb and added sugar-free. They turned out amazing and I almost felt guilty until I remembered that they were healthy! It’s so hard to tell that these beauties aren’t made like traditional pancakes because they turned out incredible and they look like the real deal.
These pancakes are becoming a morning staple for me and I love that they are sugar free, low carb, gluten free and dairy free, since I use coconut or almond milk when making them. My favorite thing to do is top them with a little bit of honey, some shredded coconut and homemade sugar-free blackberry jam!
Low-Carb, Gluten Free, Sugar Free Pancakes
Delicious, fluffy, ketogenic, low-carb, sugar-free, gluten free pancakes
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk (coconut, almond, cashew, or dairy milk)
- 3 TBSP coconut oil (in liquid state)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 TBSP splenda (or another sugar substitute)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Heat a griddle or a large skillet over medium heat
Melt your coconut oil and let cool for a few minutes
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk and coconut oil until combined
In a separate bowl, whisk coconut flour, sugar-substitute, baking powder and sea salt until well mixed
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined and there are no lumps remaining
Grease the skillet (or griddle) with oil or butter
Drop a ladle of batter onto the skillet. It should be a little less than 1/4 cup
Cook 3-4 minutes, or until small bubbles form on top, then flip and cook for another 2-4 minutes.
Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Tip: Pour small amounts of the batter onto the skillet otherwise it can be very difficult to flip. The pancakes are very light and if you have too much batter, they won't flip and will create a huge mess on your stove top!
