    Add keto pancake batter to a piping bag and squeeze out or spoon miniature sized pancakes (about the size of a small coin) to your preheated griddle or pan. Space around 1/4 to 1/2 inch apart. They shouldn't spread much.

    Once you have finished piping out mini pancakes on the entire surface, return to the first keto pancake and flip it. I found using a small rubber spatula works best to flip the pancakes. Cook them longer for a crispier pancake cereal.

Griddle vs NonStick Skillet for Cooking Keto Pancakes

When I cook keto pancakes, I recommend using a griddle. A griddle provides a large surface for cooking your pancakes and you get even heat throughout the entire surface. Sometimes a skillet can get hot spots depending on the size of your skillet. The center is usually the hotest and the edges are not as hot.

The Best Way to Form Mini Keto Pancakes

When it comes to pouring your keto pancake batter to the griddle or frying pan, you can do a couple different techniques. Each way, you want to form a pancake about the size of a small coin - like a nickel or a quarter.

My preferred method is to pour the pancake batter in a piping bag and squeeze out dime sized mini pancakes onto the griddle. You could also use a ziploc bag if you don’t have piping bags on hand. Simply add your keto pancake batter to a ziploc baggie and cut a small hole in one of the corners.

You could spoon the pancake batter onto the non-stick skillet. It’s hard to get even sized pancakes with this technique unless you have a super steady hand.

Another way is to pour your low carb pancake batter into a squeeze bottle - like an empty ketchup bottle - then squeeze little tiny pancakes out onto the heated griddle.

Keto Mini Pancake Ingredient Substitutions

Keto Pancake Flour

I like to use coconut flour when I make keto, gluten free pancakes. Almond flour tends to burn easier when it gets hot. When a coconut flour pancake cooks, it retains that golden brown coloring.

If you don’t like coconut flour, you can use almond flour. You will need to add more almond flour since coconut flour tends to absorb more liquid so you require less coconut flour when baking. If you want to try almond flour, I suggest using 1 cup of almond flour in this keto mini pancake recipe.

Heavy Whipping Cream Substitues

If you don’t want to use heavy cream, you can substitute with a nut milk of your choice - like almond, coconut or macadamia nut milk. You could also use sour cream too!

Variations of Tiny Keto Pancake Cereal

There are so many fun ways you can transform your mini keto pancake cereal. Here are some creative suggestions I found on TikTok or came up with on my own.

Chocolate Chip Keto Pancake Cereal

After you have poured your keto pancake batter onto the griddle, add a few sugar-free chocolate chips to each pancake. My favorite keto approved chocoalte chips are by ChocZero. Their chocolate chips are sugar-free and sugar alcohol free.

Funfetti Keto Pancakes

For a fun dessert breakfast or keto birthday cereal, add some sugar-free sprinkles to your pancake batter. Top these pancakes with sugar free whipped cream or add a scoop of low carb vanilla ice cream.

Or top with melted, sugar-free white chocolate that is dyed different colors with food coloring. red and blue melted chocolate on mini keto pancakes

Mini Keto Pancake Cereal Storage

Pancakes are keto meal prep friendly. You can store the pancake batter to use ahead of time. The mini keto pancakes are freezer safe so they can be made ahead of time and saved for later use.

Storing Keto Pancake Batter

You can make up your keto pancake batter ahead of time to cook later or save any leftover batter in the refrigerator. Just put the pancake batter in a ziploc bag or mason jar and keep refrigerated for about 1 day or the night before.

Freezing Mini Keto Pancakes

As with my other keto pancakes, these tiny low carb pancake cereal can be stored in the freezer. After all of the mini pancake cereal has finished cooking. Let them cool on a plate or wire rack, then flash freeze them on the plate until frozen. Once your mini keto pancake cereal has harden, pour all of your pancakes into a freezer safe bag and store in the freezer.

To heat up, pop them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or until heated through. Or spread them out on a baking tray and heat them up in the oven at 300 degrees for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through.
