Keto 3-ingredients pancakes

9 ratings

You'd never guess how delicious Keto 3 ingredient recipes can be. These fluffy pancakes feel like you're biting into clouds. They are quick and easy to prepare using eggs, cream cheese, and almond flour. You can serve them with butter and sugar-free syrup, fresh berries, or fried chicken for a savory twist.

How to make this 3 ingredient Keto pancake recipe?

This pancake recipe is a bit different from your typical Keto pancakes. It is prepared by whipping the egg whites until light and airy, then, the mixture is folded into cream cheese, egg yolks, and almond flour. This recipe contains no baking powder; it depends solely on the whipped egg whites for its fluffiness.

Are these pancakes sweetened?

Since we're limiting this recipe to 3 ingredients, we skipped the sweetener and thought we’d depend on the syrup for that. However, if you like to sweeten your pancake batter, don't let us stop you. If using a granulated or powdered sweetener, add it gradually to the egg whites while beating. If using concentrated liquid sweeteners like stevia, then add it to the egg yolk mixture.

How to get perfectly beaten egg whites?

To beat egg whites properly, there are a couple of points to consider. Firstly, use a glass or metal bowl. Plastic bowls tend to have oils stuck to them, which would prevent the egg whites from aerating. Secondly, wipe the clean bowl with a paper towel soaked in a little vinegar. This ensures the bowl is clean, and the acid helps stabilize the egg whites. Lastly, don't overwhip the egg whites; stop once you start seeing defined strokes.

    These were good and simple. I added cinnamon in the batter to give it more a French toast taste.

          Just tasted egg by the exact measurements in grams. I added one more tablespoons of almond flower and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Made a better batter with a better taste. Still very eggy. Not a fan. I will tray making my own recipe with one egg, one cup of almond milk, some almond flower, vanilla and a little butter.

              Not sure if I did something wrong but all I could taste was egg. It was like eating eggs. They were nice and fluffy and cooked well though.

                This is right. All I could taste by the exact measurements in grams, is egg. Like an omelette. I had to add one more spoon of almond flower and a teaspoon of vanilla. It made the batter and taste better but now confused about the calories and carbs. I wouldn’t give it more than 2 stars

                  They don't convert exactly. You can get a food scale for about $10. They're worth their weight in gold! Since I started tracking my food, I got a scale. It's critical for keto baking because weight in grams is more accurate than cups or tablespoons, which can vary by whether they're tightly packed or loose.

                The recipie directions do not include what to do with the almond flour, but aside from this it was tasty. They are a little hard to flip if you get impatient.
