Keto Pancakes Recipe with Protein Powder
I was looking for a keto pancakes recipe with added protein and high in fibre. I just couldn’t find a keto pancake that would meet my needs. Most of the recipes I came across were simple protein pancakes, and although they looked great, they didn’t have the extra fibre I wanted.
This is a low calorie pancake recipe, which you can also use for keto crepes! These are flourless pancakes because we’re cooking them without almond flour or coconut flour. Nut free pancakes in the keto world are hard to come by. And don’t worry, these keto pancakes have no cream cheese. I know there are a lot of low carb recipes which are based on eggs and cream cheese. But I felt like something different, and I also wanted extra fibre to keep me full.
Keto Protein Pancakes Nutrition
As a nutritionist I’m always trying to find a way to include protein and fibre into my recipes. This is no small task! However with this low carb recipe, I’ve found a way to make the perfect low carb protein pancakes with the added bonus of high fibre and low in calories. So low in calories that I can eat as much as I like! You’ll also see in the nutrition one of these low carb pancakes has 10 grams of protein! That makes for a great high protein breakfast while being low calorie and virtually sugar free.
How many calories in a pancake?
You’ll be delighted to know each pancake has only 73 calories!
The pancake recipe is also Gluten free, nut free, high fibre, high protein and super tasty! You can try adding different flavours. If you’re not concerned with following a low carb or keto diet, try adding some fruit. If you’re adding ingredients with extra moisture, I’d suggest that you add a little extra chia seed powder so your pancakes have the right consistency.
Low Carb Protein Pancake Recipe Tips
- Be sure to buy unsweetened ingredients, as food manufacturers sometimes add sugar to enhance taste and increase shelf life. Check your nutrition labels to be sure!
- You can make your own Chia Seed Powder by blending plain Chia Seeds on high for a few seconds. Easy! And you can even make your own chia jam recipe to top your pancakes!
- You can substitute cottage cheese for extra yoghurt if you like. I used cottage cheese because it doesn’t have a strong taste, and so it blends nicely.
- To make crepes, omit the baking powder and pour a very thin layer into a non stick pan. Cook as you normally would.
Chances are this’ll be the best keto pancakes, and the best protein pancake recipe you’ll ever have for breakfast!
