This keto pancake recipe might be a thin version Ketogenic pancakes, But they do feel very different.Different texture, different from pancakes, you can sweeten almond flour pancakes or delicious. From breakfast to dinner, provide them with any meal (more ideas below!), and they can easily become elegant carbohydrate-conscious desserts. If you have never made low-carb crepes before, this is the ultimate guide!
I originally posted this keto pancake recipe after I made it for my husband’s wedding anniversary because they are my husband’s favorite breakfast. They remind us of Paris, which is our honeymoon and other destinations. We can always find restaurants that stuff these light pancakes with all kinds of goodies, but they are never very suitable for ketogenicity. So, I went to the kitchen and tried to make almond flour pancakes and they tasted just as good!
There is a secret ingredient in this recipe to make these crepes flexible, but the flour and sweetener you choose are equally important for the best keto crepes.I use The wholesome yum almond flour (The best consistency out there!) and Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend (It is as sweet as sugar and locks in moisture!) Make a smooth batter with a hint of sweetness.
What is a pancake?
Pancakes are thin French pancakes with lace on the edges and a buttery taste. You will usually find them folded or rolled up with sweet or savory fillings and toppings.
Are crepes keto-friendly?
Most crepes are difficult to adapt to a ketogenic diet because they contain traditional flour, sugar and milk. But there is good news: you can easily make keto pancakes with just a few ingredients!
Can you use almond flour to make pancakes?
You can definitely use almond flour for crepes, but there is a caveat. Almond flour does not contain gluten protein like white flour, so it does not stick together by itself. This is why this almond flour crepe recipe adds a special ingredient to keep them together.
Ingredients for almond flour pancakes
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for low-carb crepes, the role of each type of crepes in the recipe, and alternative options. For measurement, please refer to the recipe card below.
One of the biggest challenges in making keto pancakes is to make them pliable without falling apart. In ordinary pancakes made with wheat flour, gluten helps hold them together. This is not the case with almond flour.
But can you make keto-friendly pancakes that can still be rolled and folded? indeed! Some key factors make this work work:
- Gelatin powder – This is my secret ingredient to prevent the almond flour pancakes from falling apart! Gelatin acts as a binder. Make sure it is tasteless.
- water – It makes the gelatin bloom and helps to dilute the batter.You can also use your favorite Keto milk substitute.
- The wholesome yum almond flour – It is bleached and super finely ground to make the crepes smoother. No gravel texture!
- sea salt
- egg – Use the right proportion of large eggs in your keto crepe batter.
- butter – It gives these almond meal keto crepes with a rich buttery taste. Feel free to replace it with coconut oil or regular butter.
- Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – It adds a faint sweetness to the batter, and unlike other sweeteners, it helps to lock in moisture. If you want to make keto savory pancakes, please skip it.
- Vanilla extract – Another flavor enhancer for sweet keto crepes recipes. (Ignore the salty taste.)
How to make tomato pancakes
This section shows how to make almond flour pancakes with step-by-step photos and detailed information about the technique. For complete instructions, see the recipe card below.
- Flowering gelatin. Mix the gelatin with water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken.
- mixing. Add almond flour, salt, eggs, melted ghee, sweetener (if used), vanilla (if used), and remaining water in a blender. Blitz until smooth. Add the blooming gelatin to the blender and blend again until smooth.
tip: The batter is too thick? Add a small amount of water to dilute the batter, but not too much!Should still be a bit Thicker Better than the traditional flowing crepe batter.
- chef. In the oiled pan, add the almond flour crepe batter and quickly tilt in a circular motion to reach all the edges of the pan. Cook until the edges look dry and the crepe forms bubbles.
- flip. When the edges are dry, gently flip the crepes and continue cooking until slightly browned and finished. Repeat with the remaining batter.
- enjoy! Fold or roll up the crepes as you like-see below for the service concept.
Tips for the best tomato crepes
I tested a bunch of this keto crepe recipe and got it just right! To ensure that your pancakes are flawless, do not fall apart, and remain flexible, follow these tips:
- No need to refrigerate the keto crepe batter. This is a common requirement for traditional crepes made with wheat flour, but for these gluten-free crepes made with almond flour, you can skip it. The reason is that the need for refrigeration is related to the interaction between gluten and water. Gluten-free means no need to wait!
- Use the correct pan. One 8-inch non-stick pan It works best, and make sure it has a heavy bottom. If you try to use a larger or lighter pan, this low-carb crepe recipe will be more difficult.
- Heat the pan gradually. If you heat the pan too fast, it may overheat, you have to reduce the heat to compensate, and then increase it. Instead, heat it to medium-low and wait patiently while heating.
- Make sure the pot is hot, but not too hot. I know this sounds confusing. I mean, heat the pan at medium-low (or sometimes medium), not higher, but give it enough time to heat at this temperature before starting to cook. If the pan is too cold, the crepe batter will stick. If it is too hot, the pancakes will become crispy rather than soft.
- Use only a little oil (or ghee), but not too much. You need enough fat to prevent sticking, but if you use too much, almond flour pancakes will become crispy. You need very, very small amounts, and only need to grease after every few slices of crepes, not after every one.
- Rotate the ketogenic crepe batter correctly around the pan. I have done it wrong for years, don’t know! do not Tilt the pot in one direction and wait for the batter to drip to the edge.Instead, quickly tilt a circle in all directions and repeat the operation Quickly Pour the batter and turn it over 2-3 times immediately. When doing so, the circle of crepe batter will gradually become larger.
- Turn over at the right time. Cook the crepes for 1-2 minutes until the edges are dry and you will see bubbles form on the top. Gently slide a spinner underneath, if it feels dry enough to hold it together, then you can flip it over. You may need to adjust the temperature at any time. Generally, if the temperature is right, all the crepes after the first crepes should be about the same.
- Use the reader’s tips to flip the low-carb crepes. Loosen the edge first, lift the edge slightly upward with a spatula, then carefully pull it up with your fingers and turn it over.
- Cook for less time on the second side. After flipping, you usually need less time than the first side. Most of the time does not exceed one minute.
Fresh gluten-free keto pancakes with almond flour are delicious, but you can also make them in advance.
- Storage: Store them in the refrigerator lined with parchment paper or paper towels.
tip: Make sure there is not too much air in the container, Otherwise the crepes will become dry and crisp instead of soft. If this happens, you can separate them and use them as a bargaining chip!
- Reheat: To keep it moist, place the low-carb pancakes in a baking tray, cover with foil, and heat them in a 250-degree oven for 15 minutes or until fully heated. The microwave oven can also work normally.
- freeze: Yes, you can store almond flour pancakes in a plastic bag in the freezer compartment. Line the parchment paper between them to prevent sticking and easy removal.
