How to Make Keto Almond Flour Pancakes
Separate the eggs. Whip the egg whites until you get soft peaks and set aside.
In another bowl, add the egg yolks, Swerve, vanilla and the heavy cream. Mix using a hand mixer for about 2 minutes.
Add the egg whites in and mix briefly.
In a separate bowl, add the almond flour, oat fiber and baking powder.
Whisk the dry ingredients until well combined.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until combined.
Batter should be a little loose, but not too runny. Add a little more heavy cream, if needed.
Add some avocado oil, coconut oil or clarified butter/ghee to a skillet on low heat and add the pancake batter to make pancakes of about 3-4” in diameter. Place 4-5 blueberries on top of each pancake, gently pressing them into the batter.
Cook them on low heat with a lid on for a few minutes on each side, this is key!
Once you see them start to puff up, tiny bubbles will form and the bottoms will start browning, it's time to flip them!
If you want a little extra decadence, serve these with a big dollop of sweetened whip cream right on top.
Or serve with butter and/or Sugar-Free Maple Syrup and enjoy!
You can certainly serve with your favorite sugar-free syrup, but if you can find blueberries in peak season they are sweet enough alone!
Keto Pancakes FAQs
What kind of flour is best for pancakes? Using a combination of super fine almond flour and oat fiber really helps give these pancakes the best texture. Pancakes with oat fiber have a soft and fluffy texture that you look for in a pancake.
Can gluten free pancake batter be stored in the fridge? Yes! You can make a double batch and it will keep in the fridge for a couple of days. When you're ready to use, if it's too thick, just add a small amount of heavy cream, then whisk and it's good to go!
Can I freeze leftover pancakes? Absolutely! For leftovers, line a sheet pan with parchment paper, place the pancakes in a single layer on the pan. Allow the pancakes to come to room temperature, before putting them in the freezer for 2 hours. Place the frozen pancakes in a freezer safe container or freezer bag.
What if I don't like blueberries? You don't have to add them. This Keto pancake recipe is delicious just plain with butter and sugar-free maple syrup. Or you can add a raspberry sauce or strawberry sauce over the top instead.
Can I use egg whites only for the batter? It is not recommended. Using only egg whites only removes a lot of fat that is needed to give these low carb pancakes the texture they need.
Why is it better to make Keto pancakes smaller than traditional ones? Almond flour renders a more delicate pancake than regular flour. Making them smaller helps to keep them together when flipping. Plus, who doesn't love the crispy edges around a pancake?!

What is Oat Fiber? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats. How healthy is oat fiber? It's pure insoluble fiber, which doesn't dissolve in water and isn't broken down in the digestive tract, so it has zero net carbs and is perfect for a Keto Diet. It helps give a more traditional texture and that's why I use it so often. Check out all the Keto Oat Fiber Recipes you can make!
What is a Substitute for Oat Fiber?
To get the best results, it's best to use oat fiber if you can. If you're unable to find it, try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour. Since both are very absorbent, you might have to add more liquid.

could you use Psyllium Husk as a Oat fiber replacement?
Keto Cooking Christian
I cannot say for sure, since I've never tried it. I would consider maybe part psyllium husk powder and part coconut flour, but you might have to increase your liquid and egg. Oat fiber is really best in this recipe, if at all possible.
Can you us d of heavy cream?
