Low-Carb Buttermilk Pancake Recipe

buttermilk pancakes on plate with raspberries Buttermilk pancakes are fantastic and have unique sweet and tangy taste. These keto buttermilk pancakes are fluffy and thick. Most low carb pancakes recipes use multiple eggs (sometimes up to 4-6 eggs) to achieve a fluffy pancake, but the result is a pancake that tastes like an egg.

This recipe for keto pancakes, only has one egg! Instead of relying on the egg to produce volume. This recipe uses a little chemistry with help of acidic buttermilk and baking soda. The result is thick, fluffy and delicious keto buttermilk pancakes!

Is Buttermilk Keto?

buttermilk in glass jar Buttermilk is the liquid leftover after churning butter. It is higher in protein and lower in fat. It also has a tangy flavor since it is fermented.

Buttermilk has a higher carb count compared to heavy cream, but it is essential in this recipe because of its fermented properties. It’s tartness not only contributes to the flavor in this recipe but it is acidic. When the acidic buttermilk is combined with baking soda, it will release carbon dioxide. These bubbles created by the reaction will help the pancakes rise.

Xanthan Gum In Keto Pancakes

The xanthan gum in this keto pancake recipe helps to keep the pancakes together making them easier to flip. These pancakes are delicate and can be harder to flip compared to traditional pancakes. The xanthan gum serves as a binder to help keep them together.

If you do not have xanthan gum, you can omit it; however, you will just need to take extra care when flipping your keto buttermilk pancakes.

Sour Cream In Keto Pancakes

Sour cream serves many roles in a low carb pancake recipe. Sour cream adds fat, flavor and acidity to help the pancakes rise. Similar to buttermilk, sour cream is acidic. When combined with baking soda, it will release gas bubbles to help fluff up the pancake batter.

Keto Friendly Syrup

My favorite keto syrup to put on my buttermilk pancakes are the syrups from ChocZero. They have maple, maple pecan and maple vanilla syrup. The maple vanilla syrup is my favorite.

Keto Camping Recipe

Store the pre-measured dry ingredients in a mason jar or container ahead of time. Once you are camping, add in the wet ingredients to the jar. Shake it or mix to combine, then pour out onto a cast iron griddle or skillet.
