Easy healthy pancakes without banana

Additionally, those healthy pancakes without banana are keto friendly. They don’t use any high carb fruits only low-carb flour and no added sugar. Following are all the ingredients you need to make those paleo pancakes.

Gluten free pancakes Low carb

  • Almond flour – make sure you use blanched almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal has a thicker texture and those paleo pancakes will loose their fluffy texture with almond meal
  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk – as always I love to use Almond Breeze as there is no sugar added in their almond milk, it is low calories and dairy free. Any milk will work in this recipe, so if you can’t find almond milk, feel free to adapt with any milk you like.
  • Eggs – you need eggs in this almond flour pancakes recipe especially if you want to keep the recipe low-carb. At this time the only egg replacement option that works was using 1/4 cup of buckwheat flour instead of eggs but it is not a low-carb options.
  • Melted coconut oil – or any vegetable oil you like. If you are using coconut oil, make sure your eggs and milk are not too cold, or it will solidify the coconut oil creating lumps in the batter.
  • Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon is what I like to use, you can upgrade to 3/4 teaspoon for fluffier pancakes if you like

5 tips to make perfect gluten free pancakes

  1. Ingredients temperature – make sure your eggs and almond milk are at room temperature. If they are cold, straight away from the fridge, they will solidify the melted coconut oil creating lumps. If your ingredients are cold and you can’t wait, use a different oil to avoid this to happen. Any vegetable oil will work well like canola oil, avocado oil, flaxseed oil.
  2. Cooking temperature – temperature is the key to make the perfect almond flour pancakes. The crepe pan should be hot but not too hot or the pancakes won’t raise and burn. Choose  a medium-high heat, reducing to low heat if needed, be patient.
  3. Space – Leave them some space. Don’t add more than 3 pancakes at a time in the crepe pan for even cooking. Keep your pan still, no shaking and wait until the sides are set before you flip them on the other side.
  4. Oil – Spray or rub the pan with absorbent paper covered with vegetable oil. Avoid butter, it burns easily at medium-high temperature leaving a burn flavor to your pancakes. Don’t add oil directly or it will dry your pancakes
  5. Flipping – not more than one flip or your almond flour pancakes will deflate. Also make sure you flip them after the bubbles are showing in the batter. If flipped too early they will break and not raise

What goes well on almond flour pancakes?

Paleo pancakes are very bland on their own. We recommend to add toppings to bring out all the flavor of those almond flour pancakes. First, a delicious simple pancake topping is a piece of grass-feed butter and sugar free flavored maple syrup. The hot pancakes melt the butter, it is absorbed into the dough adding an amazing buttery flavor. Next, melted chocolate or sugar-free chocolate sauce and berries. This is a powerful combo of flavor especially chocolate and raspberry. Finally, why not adding some savory toppings on your pancakes? Try some mashed avocado, chives, smoked salmon topped with poached egg. This will create the most decadent paleo pancakes for breakfast.

  1. OMG!!!I wanted to see if I could still make these bad boys VEGAN and so I used 2 teaspoons of psyllium husk to the dry ingredients and 2 tablespoons of water to the wet ingredients and it fricken WORKED. Yes it takes a liiiitle longer on the griddle to cook but it actually works!!! I mean I feel like you can play around with this more, maybe more or less, maybe some other ingredients to make it not as gooey…you are the master here haha! I love all of the recipes I have tried. Thank you for sharing yourself to the world 🙂

    • WHAT? That is AMAZING! Thanks so much for sharing this I know my vegan keto followers will love you for that. XOXO Carine

    • Hi! I am sorry to hear that but unfortunately this particular recipe doesn’t work with egg replacement. I don’t have a egg free pancake recipe on the blog yet. Enjoy the other egg free recipes around here. XOXO Carine.


  2. Loved making these.. quite filling and satisfying. I had 2 pancakes and I was full. Thank you for sharing such an easy recipe.. honestly I thoroughly enjoyed making and eating these.

  3. Hi Carine, I note that you are living in Auckland; me too. I am wondering if you are able to get a version of the sugar free maple syrup here in Auckland, or do you buy online from an overseas merchant? Thanks

    • Kia Ora! Yes I am living in NZ. We don’t have natural sugar free maple syrup sold in New Zealand so I order online, from US. You can order through iherb, they delver NZ or amazon with reship address. Enoy the blog, XOXO Carine.


  4. I’m afraid I didn’t succeed with this recipe. They were so soft that I had difficulty turning them. When I did get some that We could taste they were not sweet at all. So next time I try them I think I will add some sweetener. But I will try again

    • I am sorry to hear that. It seems that you flip them over too early, as I mention the border needs to be set before you flip them. It takes a bit longer than wheat flour pancakes to set, you have to be patient. If you flip them at the right time, usually 3 minutes on one side is way enough, they won’t bread. Also, the batter is not sweet, up to you to add 1 or 2 tablespoon of sugar free sweetener if you like. Enoy the low carb recipes on the blog and thanks for trying some. XOXO Carine.

    • Yes but we don’t watch calories on keto low carb diet, only the fat and carbs. Also, you will be full with 2 pancakes which comes to 466 kcal, totally normal intake for a brakfast! Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.
