Cream Cheese Keto-Pancakes Recipe (4g Net Carbs)

To celebrate the #PancakeDay, we decided to make a new experiment developing a new/modified recipe of ketogenic delish with only 4g NET CARBS so all keto-dieters can celebrate without any guilt.

For this recipe variation, we opted to add 1/2 scoop of Whey Protein (about 8g to 12g of protein added, depending on the brand used) for a firmer consistency of the dough. But we know that the protein threshold can vary greatly from person to person when following a ketogenic diet, so let this ingredient as an option. For weight lifters certainly there will be no problems in some protein added, but for sedentary people may mean a slight reduction in their ketones levels. For those who do not want to add whey protein in this recipe, we suggest to use Guar Gum and/or Xantham Gum to do the role of the protein in the dough consistency, but you can add only a small amount of one these gums (or any combination of both), to get the correct point of the dough.

So, watch your macros and modify this recipe accordingly.


Optional Ingredients

Optional Toppings



STEP 01 – In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients before: whey protein powder, coconut flour, cinnamon and baking powder, and then add the other ingredients;



STEP 02 – Using a good mixer (or blender) to blend all the ingredients for about 3 minutes or until desired smooth reached – this is a very important step to add homogeneity to the dough;


STEP 03 – The dough may seem a little bit watery, but don’t worry it will thicken when heated up. Now you can add the optional ingredient Guar Gum and/or Xantham Gum to add more consistency to the dough;



STEP 04 – This recipe will make two medium-sized pancakes (or thin crepes, or whatever your imagination wants), so split the batter in two portions, heat up a non-stick pan or skillet with butter or coconut oil on medium-high. Use a pan lid during cooking so that will make the pancakes softer;



STEP 05 – Make them like regular pancakes, cooking most of the way on one side and then flip for completion. In a medium-high heat, you can get it done in about 3 to 5 minutes;



STEP 06 – Top with butter, Walden Farms Calorie-free Maple Syrup, Walden Farms Calorie-free Chocolate Syrup, any kind of cheese (we highly recommend Gruyère Swiss Cheese) or any other topping of your preference;



And my wife’s favourite variation of this recipe: LOADS OF GRUYÈRE SWISS CHEESE!!! 🙂
