Fluffy Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce – Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free

pancakes with strawberry sauce keto low carb gluten free

I’m so excited to share these pancakes with you, they are absolutely amazing!  Have you ever made low carb/Keto pancakes that taste too eggy, fall apart when you try to flip them,  deflate by the time they hit the plate, or just have an odd texture?  Not these!!!  I have been experimenting with pancakes for a while and I finally found the perfect combination of ingredients that is most reminiscent of traditional pancakes.  These have a great amount of fiber in them and are very filling!  You can top them with my Homemade Strawberry Sauce or your favorite Keto-friendly syrup!

Ingredients

3/4 cup almond flour

1/2 cup Oat Fiber (see note below)

3 eggs, separated

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 tablespoons swerve confectioners (or powdered Erythritol)

2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 cup heavy cream

Avocado oil for the pan (or coconut oil, clarified butter, ghee)

Homemade Strawberry Sauce  (click here for the recipe)

1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Preparation

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, mix the almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder and salt.  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 4” in diameter.

Cook them on low heat with a lid on for a few minutes on each side, this is key!

Top with butter and my Homemade Strawberry Sauce  (click here for the recipe)!

*Note:  The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe.  I use it in so many recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking!  It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with and is really worth buying.  I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 and I buy it in the 16 ounce bag here.  The bag lasts a while because you don’t need to use much in your recipes.

Oat Fiber, is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats.  Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outside husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber.  Insoluble fibers do not dissolve in water and are not broken down in the digestive tract.

These are my favorite recipes that I’ve made using Oat Fiber:

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

These are the best Keto pancakes! I have tried several recipes and not one has come close to the taste and texture of these pancakes. My family loved them. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
