Low Carb Gingerbread Pancake Recipe

gingerbread pancakes for keto breakfast I’m always on the hunt for a special breakfast to serve Christmas morning. You should consider making these keto gingerbread pancakes on Christmas morning. They are full of yummy gingerbread flavor and are espeically good when topped with fresh whipped cream or a scoop of low carb ice cream - which you can get away with on Christmas…because it’s Christmas! You CAN have ice cream with your pancakes for Christmas!

Gingerbread Flavor

If you don’t have any vanilla syrup, then just add 1/4 cup of Swerve or erythritol and 1/4 cup of heavy cream.

Mixing the Gingerbread Pancake Batter

The easiest way to combine all the ingredients for the low carb gingerbread pancakes is to mix them using a blender. Since this recipe contains cream cheese, it can be time consuming to produce a smooth batter with just an electric mixer. Even though it is softened, the cream cheese in mixture can be lumpy. If you have a high powered blender like a BlendTec or Vitamix, the pancake batter comes together quickly.

Cooking Low Carb Gingerbread Pancakes

Keto pancakes an be difficult to flip because they don’t have gluten. Gluten helps to hold pancakes together. For this gluten free, keto pancake recipe, we use cream cheese to give the batter elasticity to hold the pancakes together. Since low carb cream cheese pancakes are delicate, I recommend pouring out the pancake batter to make a smaller pancake, rather than a larger one. Small pancakes are easier to flip.

I recommend using a griddle to cook cream cheese keto pancakes because a griddle will produce even heat to allow for better cooking. I also recommend cooking these gingerbread pancakes over low heat. That way they have time to set up. It may take them longer to cook on each side.

Keto Gingerbread Pancakes Storage and Meal Prep

Although these low carb pancakes are easy enough to make that you can make them the morning you want to serve them, you can prep these ahead of time. They can be stored in the refrigerator or frozen. Then reheated when you wantt to have them.
