Easy Almond Flour Pancakes

This five ingredient healthy pancake recipe will quickly become a Sunday breakfast staple in your home.

And the pancakes could not be easier to make: Simply stir all of the ingredients together, pour the pancake batter onto a pan, and watch as they magically turn into diner-style fluffy keto pancakes so soft and sweet, you’d never guess they could possibly be made without any flour or sugar.

Low Carb Pancake Options:

Keto Cream Cheese Pancakes: If you want a cream cheese pancake recipe, simply replace the oil or water in the sugar free pancake recipe below with 2 tbsp cream cheese or vegan cream cheese.

Keto Blueberry Pancakes: Stir a pinch of cinnamon into the batter if desired. Press a few blueberries onto each pancake right after pouring the batter into the pan. Or sliced strawberries or raspberries work too.

Keto Vegan Pancakes: The pancakes are naturally dairy free, with no milk or butter. And for keto pancakes with no eggs, just use two flax eggs

The pancake recipe can be soy free, gluten free, sugar free, flourless (it’s made with almond meal instead of wheat flour), paleo, and there’s no coconut flour required.

The Best Keto Pancake Recipe

The best part about this recipe is the base is so simple that you can easily customize it to make many different pancake flavors.

The recipe yields enough homemade pancakes for one to two people, or it can easily be doubled to serve a family or a larger crowd.

Try topping the pancakes with keto maple syrup, mini chocolate chips, or fresh berries and powdered erythritol or Coconut Whipped Cream.

A reader even left a comment on Pinterest to say that she turned them into keto waffles by putting the batter into a waffle maker. If you try her idea before I do, please let me know how it goes! 

How To Make Keto Pancakes

Stir all of the ingredients together to make a pancake batter. Slowly add more liquid if a thinner batter is desired.

Grease a nonstick skillet with oil (or oil spray), and turn the heat to low. Once the pan is hot (test by adding a droplet of water to the pan; if it sizzles, it’s ready), drop small ladles of batter and press down.

Keep the pancakes small, so they aren’t done in the edges before the centers are cooked through.

To prevent sticking, I like to re-grease the skillet after each set of pancakes. Serve hot with your favorite pancake toppings.

Leftover pancakes can be stacked with a layer of parchment between each pancake and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two or three days. Or you can also freeze leftovers for up to two months.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 4 – 7 pancakes
5 from 20 votes


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp keto syrup or water (pure maple syrup or milk of choice also work)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp oil or water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs (including the vegan options listed earlier in this post)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • optional chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips
  • optional if using water instead of syrup, add a pinch of stevia or erythritol if desired, or omit for savory pancakes


  • Combine all ingredients to make a pancake batter. Add more liquid if needed to thin out the batter. Grease a nonstick skillet with oil or spray, and heat on low. When the pan is hot (test it by adding a droplet of water to the pan – if it sizzles, the pan is ready), drop on small ladles of batter and press down. Don’t make them too big or they’ll be done on the edges before the centers have a chance to cook. (To prevent sticking, it may be necessary to re-grease the skillet after each set of pancakes.)

    I tried this recipe about a month ago when Jason sent me the bonus pack from the Hello Breakfast cookbook. The pancakes turned out great, and tasted much closer to traditional diner-style pancakes than other low-carb pancakes I’ve tried. Other recipes tend to be flat and eggy. I look forward to trying the variations of the recipe you mentioned here — maybe I’ll try the blueberry one tomorrow.

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hmm, we haven’t tried, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work as tiny pancakes. In other words, they should work! Be sure to report back if you try!

    Hi 👏
    I made these this morning – AS WAFFLES. I ran out of almond flour and ended up using about 1/4 cup of coconut flour, and ended up needing about double the liquid as a result.
    It would have been perfect except I didn’t put enough grease/spray on my waffle pan, so they didn’t exactly come out. The flavour and texture and fluff are perfect! Waffle crumble is still delicious🤤

    For my topping I warmed up about 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, and mixed it with about 2 TBSP of daiya plain cream cheese and some powdered sugar free sweetener and cinnamon… YUM

    • Fabiola V. says

      I made this recipe with just one egg and 1/4 of the flour plus 1/4 cup of coconut flour and noticed that I had to add a lot more liquid to the mix than what was indicated in the recipe.

      I also noticed that I had to cook them for twice as long as well, due to the increased amount of moisture in the batter, so 2-3 minutes per side instead of just 1 minute per side on medium heat (setting #4) on a gas stove.

      I also added xanthan gum, about 1/4 tsp worth per half batch, to ensure that they wouldn’t crumble once cooked.

      Prior to cooking, I would let the batter stand for at least 5-10 minutes so that the batter can thicken because the first couple of ones didn’t turn out so well. They broke up and then they retained their shape as I kept cooking.

      These pancakes turned out delicious and were amazing with the maple syrup and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

      I would try this recipe again for pancakes. I don’t think they are suitable for waffles because of the moisture content of the batter. You will find that they do work better for pancakes, though. Good luck and enjoy!! 🙂

    I’ve made this recipe multiple times and it is delicious! They are very fluffy on the outside and crispy on the outside (if you use the right amount of oil in the pan). I think I prefer this keto pancake recipe to our regular buttermilk pancake recipe our family uses!

  4. Shannon says

    These are the best keto pancakes I have found to date. So far in my keto diet journey I’ve tried about four or five recipes, and this is the pancake recipe I’m stopping with. No need to try any more, this is perfect for what I was hoping it would be, a keto option that doesn’t make me say it’s good for low carb but I wish it was regular pancakes. These are just as good as regular pancakes 🙂

  5. Jacqueline says

    Is the maple syrup actually added into the batter? Which works better in the batter, syrup, milk, or water? Thanks.

  6. Sara says

    Literally the best pancakes I have ever tried. I was looking for keto breakfast recipes, and most of them involve bacon or sausage, but I was always more of a sweet breakfast person. These keto pancakes fit the bill and were so fluffy I wanted to cry 🙂 🙂
