Low Carb Pancakes Only 2g of Carbs + Gluten & Dairy Free!
Good, morning, everyone! I woke up at 5 am, so excited to get this recipe up today. I tried to lay in bed and listen to a podcast, but my mind kept saying, “go to your office and blog those pancakes!”A few nights ago, I made the most delicious low-carb pancakes for dinner. I couldn’t make them fast enough because whenever one came off the stove, Kyle or I would hurry up and eat it. I didn’t know if they would work out because I just threw the ingredients together, but they were so fluffy and perfect. I had many of you ask for the recipe on Instagram, so I hurried up and tested out the recipe again to make sure I could get it right before posting. I think you’re going to LOVE these pancakes, even if you aren’t trying to cook low-carb. They are so fluffy, flavorful, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
Only Two grams of carbs per pancake!
Look how perfect and fluffy that stack is!
I love having all the extra pancakes in a container in the fridge. When I’m hungry and want a snack, I’ll head over to the fridge and grab a pancake. You can toast it in the toaster or eat them cold. I’ve always been a fan of eating pancakes cold! I don’t know why that is. Anyone else?
This recipe makes 20 fluffy pancakes! If you’re looking to make less, just half the recipe. I love adding butter, almond butter, or sauteed blueberries on top of my pancakes. Of course, nothing beats maple syrup! I’ve wanted to try the Stevia Keto maple syrup, but I’m afraid it’s going to have a weird taste. Have any of you tried it?
This will sound so crazy, but the consistency of these pancakes reminds me so much of the Mcdonald’s Hotcakes! Honestly, those were my favorite growing up. My parents used to take us to McDonald’s on Saturday mornings to have the pancakes and sausage and then play in the play area. Are those still a thing? To make these pancakes, you sift the almond flour, protein powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. Next, you’ll add in the almond milk and the eggs! It’s seriously that simple. The texture will be just like regular pancake batter!
I use Raw Fusion vanilla plant-based protein powder, but if your protein powder makes the batter too thick or watery, add more almond milk or more almond flour, depending on the texture.
You can mix in chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas, coconut, or any pancake filling you’d like! I always go for blueberry pancakes. You’ll want the non-stick skillet to be pretty hot! Pour 1/2 cup of batter onto the pan and cook each side for about 90-seconds. Don’t flip too soon! If the spatula can easily slide under the pancake, then it’s most likely ready to flip. If the middle of the pancake starts to split down the middle, it’s way too soon! It would be best to cook these a bit longer since you’re working with almond flour and not regular flour.

unrelated to this, can you share what youtube videos you’re watching to learn piano? I just bought myself a keyboard and starting from beginner beginner. Would love your thoughts and tips!
I actually stopped using the YouTube videos and switched to a few books. I’ll share those in the next recap blog!

Are they sugar free. I’m diabetic and would love to make pancakes I can eat.
Yes! No sugar added and you’ll want to make sure your protein powder has zero sugar!
Jennifer Newman says
Could you make sheet pancakes in oven with this recipe?
I have never tried that!
How many does this make and how many per serving for 2 gm carbs please
Hi! This recipe makes 20 pancakees 😊 and 2grams per pancake!
I love this recipe. I will say that I followed it 100% and they didn’t quite work out for me. When I poured about 1/3 cup of batter into the heated up pan they spread out so much they took up half the pan. The did fluff up nicely, but I had to cook them for about 4 mins on one side to be able to partially flip them. They ended up a big mess, but DELICIOUS. So I made another batch and instead put them into a muffin tin pan. I cooked them for 20 mins at 350 degrees and they turned out fluffy and perfect! So now we have lower carb pancake muffins!
Thank you for the recent lower carb options!!
This is my favorite recipe of yours!!!
I don’t remember how I came across your site (Instagram?) but saw the recipe for the low carb pancake recipe. I have Diabetes Type 2 so I thought “OK why not try them since I crave them and your photos look delectable.” I halved the recipe (with 2 eggs) and they came out quite tasty. I was quite surprised at just how tasty when I made them yesterday morning. And my blood sugar this morning coincidentally was the lowest it has been in years. Not saying your pancakes are miracle foods but … ha ha ha. In any case, thank you very much fir the recipe and now I’m going to look for more on your site!
This comment just made me smile and giggle.
Maybe your levels were lower because pancakes just make eveyone happy? lol But thank you for letting me know that you enjoyed this recipe. I’ll be sharing more just like this!
Have a great day and go make yourself another stack of pancakes!

Making these today and can’t wait! I will probably split the batter so i can have plain, choc chip AND blueberry 😅
Btw I have the lankato monkfruit maple syrup and it comes no where close to the real stuff. The maple flavor is super strong and more than a tsp or 2 is too much for me. I tend to use it more as maple flavoring in baking. The real syrup is worth the carbs x)
I saw that monkfruit syrup! I was curious about it.
I’m making these ASAP! My favorite pancakes are from a restaurant back home where I grew up in pacific grove, Ca (Monterey peninsula) they were raspberry, coconut, granola…..to die for!
OH that sounds amzing!!!!
Do you know the protein and calorie count for these per pancake? Thanks!
Thanks for the recipe! Would it be okay to not use protein?
The protein definitely holds it together. You’d have to replace it with more almond flour or coconut flour.
They look so yummy! I’m guessing that the 2 carbs is per pancake if you make 20 pancakes (or for each one if you half the recipe and make 10). Is that correct? Can’t wait to try them!
Hi 😊 Yes! Depending on the amount of carbs in your protein powder!
What protein powder do yo use? Mine tasted great but would love to change the protein to something plant based
I use Raw fusion!
