Adorable mini keto pancakes for breakfast as cereal! Either pour some milk over your bowl to make keto pancake cereal. Drizzle sugar-free syrup on top or add these low carb pancakes as a topping your ice cream.

America’s favorite weekend breakfast food, the pancake, just got transformed into a cereal! Keto pancake cereal is the latest trend on the internet. You can pour your favorite keto approved milk on top of these crispy, buttery tiny pancakes. Or top with a sugar-free maple syrup and dollops of butter to have little low carb pancakes in a bowl!

Mini keto pancake cereal might see like a tedious meal to make and you are probably right but this is a fun way to have pancakes and cereal at the same time. The preparation for the pancake batter is easy since everything is whipped together in a blender. Pouring out pancakes the size of a quarter is just the step that may take some time.

What is mini pancake cereal?

Mini pancake cereal is just that. Tiny pancakes in a bowl with either milk or syrup poured on top. It’s the latest food trend to come from all the adventurous foodies on TikTok.

Truthfully, they are pretty time consuming to make. Obviously making large keto pancakes is more efficient than making tiny versions of the same thing. But this is a fun way to enjoy pancakes – especially for a special occasion like the holidays or a birthday.

    Griddle vs non-stick skillet: which to use?

    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 hottest and the edges are not as hot.

    🔪 Best way to form mini 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.

    Ingredient substitutions

    Keto pancake flour

    I like to use coconut flour when I make keto 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 if you want to to try it in this keto pancake recipe.

    Heavy whipping cream substitutes

    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!

    Ways to eat mini pancake cereal

    There are many ways to enjoy your pancake cereal – that’s what makes it so fun to eat! Besides pouring heavy cream or your favorite nut milk into a bowl of cereal, you can try non-traditional ways to eat your little pancakes.

    Add a few slices of butter on your pancakes and pour a sugar-free, keto approved pancake syrup on top. My favorite low carb maple syrup is by ChocZero. They have a huge line of sugar-free syrups in all different flavors from maple to chocolate.

    For holidays and birthdays, we like to have a side of ice cream with our pancakes. You can add a few scoops of low carb ice cream and top with the mini pancakes! Add some syrup too!

    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 chocolate 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, white chocolate that is dyed different colors with food coloring.


    Storage information & meal prep instructions

    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 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 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.
