How to Make Keto Pancakes

Pancakes are everyone’s favourite breakfast and you can still enjoy them when you’re following a keto diet.


Keto pancakes can be a great filling breakfast to kickstart your day without compromising your strict protein-fat-carbs ratio, so you can continue on your journey to your goals.


How to Make Pancakes Keto-Friendly


Too many refined carbs and too much sugar should be avoided on a keto diet, so the traditional pancake recipe – and pancake toppings – needs a few tweaks to make them keto-friendly.

Eggs are a key part of a keto diet, as they’re a great source of filling protein, so these can still form the basis of your keto pancake recipe. Instead of using milk, this recipe uses cream cheese – make sure you’re using full-fat to up the fat content of your pancakes.


This keto pancakes recipe also includes Garden of Life Keto All-in-One Powder for added flavour, as sugar is of course off limits when you’re following a keto diet.


Keto Powder at Garden of Life


Our Keto All-in-One Powder features organic, grass-fed whey protein and 1.5 billion CFU Lactobacillus plantarum.


Available in Vanilla or Chocolate flavours, it contains a balanced ratio of protein, fat and carbohydrates to help support your keto goals. Add this keto powder to shakes, smoothies, baking recipes or pancakes for added flavour, fat, protein and carbs.



You can also mix up your keto pancakes recipe by adding a scoop of our Keto Organic Grass Fed Butter Powder, which is a great way to consume healthy fats when you’re on a keto diet. It mixes easily, every scoop provides the correct amount of fat to help you to stick to your ketogenic diet and it’s paleo-friendly too.
