A downside to Keto is having to watch people eat foods that you cannot and this is especially heightened when it’s a special occasion… in this case, Pancake Day which is on Tuesday 5th March this year.
However, with most foods, there is always a Keto work around available, generally involving the type of flour you use.
I happened upon a super quick and easy to make Keto pancake recipe which required coconut flour. Something I have never cooked with before, especially as I am not a fan of coconut, so it certainly wouldn’t have been my first choice. I managed to pick up some Groovy Food – Organic Coconut Flour (£3.50) from Tesco in order to give these pancakes a whirl.

I’ve adapted the recipe slightly to ensure a good consistency – the pancakes are very Scotch pancake like when made. To the colouring, texture and thickness, though you can spread the batter in the pan to make it a little thinner. So, without further ado, let’s check out how to make Keto pancakes…
How To Make Keto Pancakes
4 x large eggs / 5 x medium eggs
3 x tablespoons of Coconut flour
Adding a little cinnamon or vanilla essence will give the pancakes a sweeter taste – or choose Keto friendly toppings for when the pancakes are ready.

Keto Pancakes Method
Yes, those really are the only ingredients you need!
Start by breaking all the eggs into a bowl – I chose to use 5 medium eggs for a runnier consistency batter, but even so, it is still thicker than an original pancake batter. Hence why it makes thicker pancakes!
Add in 3 tablespoons of coconut flour – I wasn’t exact and did heap the tablespoons.
Whisk until a batter is formed.
Heat the coconut oil in the pan and drop 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the pan to create your pancake.
It will form quickly so make sure you keep your eye on the pan and flip over when formed (literally 30 seconds!)
I found the pancakes had more of an eggy taste than I would have preferred however the topping of whipped cream in my case did offset this.
As you can see, the consistency is very pancake like so when eating you do not feel as if you are missing out this Pancake Day!
Choose your toppings carefully from Keto friendly foods and enjoy! The pancakes are filling so you may find that just one hits the spot.
