Keto Pancake Recipe

Here’s Leanne sharing her keto pancake recipe:

This is a classic, and one of the first keto recipes that I created and shared on my blog.

While it’s a fabulous recipe and I continue to make it to this day, the initial reaction to it wasn’t all that fabulous.

Before I shared this recipe, ingredients like pork rinds never, ever made it to the blog because until I went keto, Healthful Pursuit was primarily a vegan blog! You can imagine the backlash this recipe received when I posted it. Yikes.

Over time, as I’ve grown into the keto space, this recipe has become one of my most popular. I chose to revisit it for this book and have adjusted a couple of the instructions to make the end result easier to achieve.

I hope you love it!

Be sure to use your nonstick pan; it’s essential to success on this one.

Keto Pancake Recipe – Guest Post from Healthful Pursuit

  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 10mins
  • Cook Time: 40mins
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 pancakes (2 servings)



  • 2.8 ounces (80 g) unseasoned pork rinds
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup (120 ml) full-fat coconut milk
  • ¼ scant teaspoon liquid stevia
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided, for the pan


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened smooth almond butter


  1. Place the pork rinds in a spice grinder or blender. Grind to a very fine but clumping powder (it will clump together when pinched because of the fat content in the pork rinds).
  2. Transfer the ground pork rinds to a small bowl and add the cinnamon and baking powder. Stir to combine.
  3. In a larger bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and stevia. Add the pork rind mixture and stir to incorporate.
  4. In an 8-inch (20-cm) nonstick frying pan, melt ½ tablespoon of coconut oil over medium-low heat.
  5. Preheat your oven to the lowest temperature possible.
  6. Pour a quarter of the batter into the hot oiled pan and spread the batter evenly into a circle with the back of a spoon or by rotating the pan. Do not allow the batter to migrate too far up the sides of the pan, or it will burn. Cook the pancake for 4 to 5 minutes, until bubbles form all over. Flip carefully and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Transfer the completed pancake to a clean oven-safe plate and place in the preheated oven.
  8. Add another ½ tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan. The batter may have thickened while sitting. If so, add water, a splash at a time, and mix until the batter returns to its original consistency, being careful not to add too much water.
  9. Pour another quarter of the batter into the pan, form it into a circle, and cook, following Step 6. Repeat with the remaining coconut oil and batter.
  10. While the last pancake is cooking, prepare the sauce: Melt the 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and put it in a small bowl along with the almond butter. Stir to combine.
  11. When the pancakes are ready, divide between 2 plates and drizzle with the almond butter sauce. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon, if desired.


MAKE IT NUT-FREE: Use coconut butter in place of the almond butter.

I really enjoy pancakes and am thrilled with the idea of oil and almond butter for a pancake topping. I generally used whipped coconut cream or a cinnamon roll cream cheese icing so this is an entirely new topping idea. Thank you! The calories are way high for me at the moment as I’m doing around 1,200-1,300 per day but I look forward to making the pancakes too once I’m at my goal weight. 🙂
