I came up with this easy keto recipe to satisfy a pancake craving while following my diet of low carbs and higher protein. It tastes even more delicious with blueberries!

  • Combine almond flour, flax meal, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add ricotta cheese, egg, 1 teaspoon coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.

  • Spread 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil in the pan. Pour a portion of the batter into the pan and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until bottom is light golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

I have also tried making cottage cheese pancakes, but they stuck to the pan. Ricotta has a milder flavor and consistency for pancakes.

Recipe can be doubled.

These were delish but I made some changes so I'll give it 4 for now. I am not on a special diet so sweetened w/ splenda. Then used unsweetened applesauce w/ a drop of monk fruit maple syrup as topping. I was happy. The texture is light and I enjoy the flax chew. Read More

We didn t care for these pancakes. They have very little flavor and the texture is custard-like not very pleasant. Adding fruit and toasted almonds didn t help much. Read More

Best keto pancakes I've tried so far. I'm not into the flavor of pork rinds in my pancakes so this one is perfect with almond flour and ricotta. Much more substantial breakfast. Read More
