In this instructable we will show you how to make Keto Pancakes. This blueberry and bacon keto pancake recipe is very easy to make. My brother Jared is co-hosting with me, he has been on the keto diet for about 6 months now and wanted to do a series of keto cooking videos and asked me to help him out. Jared is a Life Coach and has been mentoring people for over 20 years he also is a YouTuber like myself. Keto recipes are very healthy to eat, and this pancake recipe is amazing. They are low carb, sugar-free, and pretty darn tasty. If we can do it, you can do it, let's get started!

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other instructables!

If you have any questions or comments leave them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial, or do both. :)

Step 2: Mix Mix Mix

The first step is to mix together the dry ingredients (Almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt). Also mix together the eggs with the almond milk and extra virgin olive oil.

*Note, if you don't have coconut flour, you can leave it out, and just use the 1 cup of almond flour. If you want the batter to be sweeter add in 1 Tbsp of Xylitol sweetener to the dry ingredients.

Step 3: Combine and Mix

Now let's pour the egg mixture in a large bowl and then mix in the dry ingredients. I usually just do half of the dry ingredients at a time. Mix until well combined.

Step 4: More Almond Milk

You may need to add more almond milk or buttermilk depending on the consistency. Always start with 1/2 cup of the almond or butter milk first, then add more as needed to get the desired consistency. If you wind up adding too much, just add back in a bit more almond flour.

Step 5: Bacon and Blueberries

Now let's mix in our bacon and blueberries. You can certainly leave those out if you like, or just use one or the other, totally up to you. Again add a bit more almond milk as needed. Now our pancake batter is ready to go. Time to preheat your griddle or skillet. Add a bit of coconut oil to the griddle. Or you can use butter, etc. Heat the griddle to 350 F (176 C), it doesn't have to be exact.

Step 6: Pour, Cook, Flip

Now we pour on our batter, using a cup or ladle, making the pancakes as large as you want, I usually make them about 4 inches in diameter. Let them cook for a few minutes. You will see little bubbles form, and the edges will dry out, and you will see a bit of browning. Check underneath with a spatula, then flip.You want a nice golden brown look to the pancake. Now wait for the other side to cook. Once done, transfer to a plate and serve! :) Enjoy!

    Nice 'ible! I cook different pancake recipes 2-3 times a week, almost all Paleo or Keto. The griddle I use is cast iron, well seasoned, and though slippery for most recipes, I find that a high percentage of almond flour tends to make the pancakes stick. So, I would double the oil from what you have there, and use avocado oil rather than olive (which has a much lower smoke point). (Also making sure the griddle is fully up to temp before starting will reduce sticking. A drop of water should dance on the surface.) One of my fav recipes is an apple-bacon-bourbon recipe, a bit similar. I would recommend using good thick-cut bacon, cooked lightly crisp and cut up. For those who haven't tried it, bacon is an awesome addition to just about any pancake, IMO.

    Thanks for the tips. We actually used coconut oil on the griddle which has a pretty high smoke point. But then again the griddle was only set to 350 which is fine for most oils. :) I think I mentioned a preheated griddle but maybe I forgot to mention that, haha. mmm thick cut applewood smoked bacon is amazing.

    "The baking powder does most of the leavening. The baking soda is added to neutralize the acids in the recipe plus to add tenderness and some leavening." This was a good answer I found from someone else, couldn't explain it better myself, haha. :)

    Just reading this makes me hungry. I hate doing dishes though. Do you think I could add all the ingredients to a bottle and sneaks it all up to mix it? That way I don't lose any batter to shaky hands and use less in the way of stuff to clean?

    You probably could! Although, you don't have to separate everything out like we did in the video, haha. Just use two bowls. one for all the dry ingredients, and one larger one for all the eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Then just add the dry ingredients to that. But you could certainly try used a wide mouth bottle of sorts. although the more I think about it, I think using bowls with a wooden spoon or fork is better, though, because you have more control. But no harm in experimenting. haha
