We had these keto-paleo pancakes for brunch today and they are absolutely amazing. They are so easy (and fast) to prepare, it made our family Sunday’s Brunch so much cosier. These are also nice and fluffy, and taste so close, or even better, than the ones I used to have in ihop.

The best things about this recipe is that you can adjust it to your needs: you can make them paleo friendly or keto friendly, and if you’re just gluten free and not on a strict diet, you can mix it up and create which ever version of these pancakes you like.

For the ingredients in this recipe

Flour: To keep these pancakes gluten free I used a mixture of almond flour and coconut flour. I’ve tried making these with just almond flour, but they fell appart more easily, that’s why adding in some coconut flour helped to keep them more firm.

The sweetener: depending on which diet you’re on, there will be a difference in the sweetener you’ll choose. If you’re on a ketogenic diet, you can use (golden) erythritol, monkfruit or stevia. When you’re on a paleolithic diet, you can use coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup. A quick tip on buying maple syrup: the darker, the more mineral content the maple syrup has and the more health benefits you’ll get out of eating it. Previously there was a grading system for maple syrup A-D (in which D was the purest form). Now all maple syrup is an A grade, so the best way to decide which one will benefit you most, is to check the color.

The creamer: If you’d like to make this recipe dairy free you can use coconut creamer or any other nut creamer (not milk! As you need a thick consistency). When you’re on a ketogenic diet, and dairy is not a problem for you, you can use unsweetened heavy cream. Make sure to check the ingredient list when buying creamer. Avoid products that have ‘carrageenan‘ in it, since this additive causes inflammation.

What to combine these keto-paleo pancakes with

Again, depending on which diet or lifestyle you’re on, you”ll have a variety of options to eat these pancakes with. I’m a mix of keto and paleo, so I ate 1 pancake with some maple syrup and a side of bacon and eggs to enjoy some sweetness and to keep it low carb.

You can also add some whipped unsweetened heavy whipping cream or honey.

As you may have seen on my instagram story. For my 4 year old daughter, I made a special kid friendly version of these pancakes and she loved it. I combined some banana with strawberries and blueberries. It was a big hit.
