Pumpkin Pancakes – Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free

Pumpkin Pancakes - Keto, Low Carb & Gluten free

NOTE:  I have since created an updated version of my Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes recipe.  Click here to see it!

I’ve tried quite a few different types of Keto-friendly pancakes and I finally came up with one that I really love. If you like pumpkin (it’s not just for the fall months), I’m betting you will love these too! They are surprisingly light and fluffy, and pair so nicely with my new favorite sugar-free syrup Choc Zero Honest Syrup – Maple Pecan .

Ingredients

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

4 tablespoons coconut flour

2 teaspoons pumpkin puree

4 large eggs, separated

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (see my recipe)

2 tablespoons powdered erythritol (or swerve confectioners)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (as needed)

clarified butter/ghee for the pan

Just so I am clear, is 1 pancake 204 calories, 16g fat, 9g protein and 3 net carbs? I am entering this into my meal tracker. Plain without syrup?

I tried doubling this recipe and was so sad that these turned out super eggy. 😢

Great recipe! Love the option for syrup…
One of the things I miss most… pancakes and syrup.
