If you are looking for thick, fluffy pancakes, then this keto souffle pancake recipe is for you. This pancake recipe uses a combination of key ingredients and methods to creating a towering puffy pancake similar to a souffle.

Besides the obvious mix of eggs and leavening agents to help these low carb pancakes rise, we use a biscuit cutter as a mold to hold in the pancake batter to keep it from spreading. As the pancakes cook in the mold, they puff up and create an ultra thick pancake. It’s perfect for soaking up all of your sugar free maple syrup.


How to make keto pancakes

  2. Blend until smooth. 
  3. Preheat a griddle to low heat. Spray with cooking oil. Add cooking spray to a biscuit cutter. Line the inside of the biscuit cutter with a ring of parchment paper. Place the ring on the griddle.
  4. Scoop pancake batter into the biscuit cutter, cover the a pot or domed shaped lid, and let cook for 8-10 minutes or until the top looks set and you can easily slide off the ring.

Key ingredients & equipment

  • Cream cheese – Cream cheese is added to provide moisture and to neutralize the eggy flavor from our egg based pancake mixture.
  • Eggs – One of the key ingredients to help these low carb pancakes rise. Since keto pancakes don’t have gluten, they aren’t able to form a necessary protein structure that wheat based pancakes yields. Eggs provide that protein to puff up our soufflé pancakes.
  • Coconut flour – The flour used to provide substance to our pancakes. Coconut flour is preferred over almond flour since almond flour tends to burn easier.
  • Sweetener – Added for flavor; however, this can be omitted.
  • Heavy cream or nut milk – Liquid to thin out the batter, heavy cream or use your favorite nut milk (almond milk, macadamia nut milk, coconut milk)
  • Baking powder – Another key leavening agent to help the pancakes rise.
  • Vanilla – A flavor enhancer.
  • Griddle – A griddle is preferred over a non-stick skillet as the heat is better controlled with a griddle. You are able to successful cook your soufflé pancakes at low heat for a longer period of time.
  • Biscuit cutters – Used as the form to hold our pancake batter in place to form a thick pancakes as it cooks.

A common question is can the coconut flour can be replaced in this keto pancake recipe. Many people don’t like the flavor of coconut flour; however, you really can’t taste it in this recipe. The combination of the cream cheese and eggs neutralize the coconut flavor.

You can replace the coconut flour with almond flour; however, you will need to add more almond flour. Try using 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of almond flour. Remember, almond flour tends to burn easier compared to coconut flour, so it’s important to cook these pancakes at a very low heat.

Storage information

Any leftover keto flapjacks can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Place pancakes in a Ziploc plastic bag or air tight container and refrigerate for up to 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave or stove top.

Freeze for up to 1 month; however, freezing may affect the texture and fluffiness slightly.
