  • Mix all ingredients in medium sized bowl
  • Heat skillet over medium heat and spray with avocado oil
  • Add batter to skillet by 1/4 cup scoops
  • Press batter down carefully with spatula to ensure it cooks evenly
  • Flip after 2-3 minutes and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes on the other side
  • Serve immediately with coconut whipped cream or as desired (not included in nutrition panel)


  • To make coconut whipped cream, chill 13 oz (400ml) can of coconut cream then pour into large bowl with 2 tablespoons powdered keto sweetener such as Swerve or So Nourished and beat with a hand-mixer for 3-5 minutes until stiff peaks form
  • Toppings for keto pancakes? Try coconut whipped cream (as above) for a new flavor twist or serve with keto-friendly Maple Syrup such as Sukrin Gold Fibre Syrup or with whipped cream (sugar-free)
  • Batter will be thick but should pour out of measuring cup
  • Need to thin the batter? Additional almond milk may be added 1 tablespoon at a time if batter is too thick
  • Keep the heat low: be sure not to let heat get too high or pancakes will quickly burn
  • Leftovers? Store leftover protein pancakes in an airtight container and eat within a couple of days. They make a tasty, portable snack the next day, spread with butter
  • Freeze pancakes? Extra chocolate pancakes can be frozen individually in zip lock bags or in airtight containers with parchment paper between each pancake.  Keto pancakes will freeze well for up to 3 months.
