Do you need a good low-carb pancake recipe to add to your repertoire? Then this recipe is for you. With only 7 ingredients and 4g of net carbs per serve, they are so simple to make. Just what you need to start your day with a healthy low-carb breakfast.

I’m sure you’ll agree once you’ve had a chance to try the recipe, that as far as low-carb versions of food go, they are as good as the sugar heavy versions. A big claim I know!

The main variation is how much sweetener you use to achieve your desired taste. The sweetener I used in this recipe is granular erythritol a naturally derived sugar substitute with no calories.

What is erythritol?

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol which means that it is naturally derived from plants and fruit. It passes through your body without affecting blood sugar levels in most people. It is considered to have a zero net carbohydrate impact.

It is very popular with diabetics and people eating low-carb, ketogenic and sugar-free diets due to its neglible net carbohydrate count.

It doesn’t have a bitter or chemical aftertaste which is one of the common complaints about other low-carb sweeteners.

Apparently erythritol, will not cause plaque build up on your teeth the way sugar does, because oral bacteria feeds off sugar. So dentists love it as a sugar substitute. An extra bonus!

How should I use erythritol?

Use erythritol as you would in any food or recipe such as baking, savoury dishes, smoothies, tea or coffee.

Erythritol is about 70% as sweet as sugar so you’ll need to adjust usage accordingly.

This would mean using 1 1/3 cup of erythritol for every 1 cup of sugar in recipes.

 

 

Play around with it by adding less or more until you find your “sweet spot”.

There are several low-carb friendly alternatives to erythritol such as stevia, monk fruit and xylitol.

How to make pancakes thinner like crepes?

These make a nice firm pancake but if you want a more crepe-like (thinner) style, then add up to an extra half cup of unsweetened almond milk.

 

Serve  your low-carb pancakes with just berries or berries and cream. I love topping them with butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

    • Low-carb pancakes and many low-carb food adaptions don’t usually taste the same as the original version. It does take a little adjustment of the taste buds when you’re eating low-carb or keto. Perhaps coconut flour is not for you. Some love it, some don’t. I know you’re dying for a pancake so perhaps search for a low-carb pancake that uses other ingredients.

  1. Well, these don’t taste like the fully carbed and sugared versions, of course…but they are very very good. Thank you for sharing this, so that I can still lure my low-carb girlfriends over! I think they’re even going to like them better when I follow your instructions for the crepes.
