Keto Coconut Pancakes Recipe
Last year, after some careful consideration, I decided to see if keto was right for me. What I didn’t do before making this decision was a lot of research. I found out what macros I needed for my weight and activity level and then just dove in. Without the research and right tools, I turned to dairy and nuts to get the bulk of my fats. No surprise that my gut hated me and I didn’t have good results.
This time, I’ve done much more research, have far more resources and supplements on-hand, and am ready to do this. Of course, my main concern, being the sugar-addict that I sometimes am, was what sort of “treats” I was allowed to eat. Turns out, if you’re eating the proper amount of macros, the fats will keep you satiated enough that you won’t really crave those sweets.
Easy Coconut Flour Pancakes
However, sometimes you just want pancakes smothered in a decadent sauce, and that’s where this recipe comes in handy. These low carb coconut flour pancakes can be made either with or without dairy and has no tree-nuts. If you’re curious about whether coconuts are “tree-nuts” this is what the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology has to say on the matter:
Coconut is not a botanical nut; it is classified as a fruit, even though the Food and Drug Administration recognizes coconut as a tree nut. While allergic reactions to coconut have been documented, most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut. If you are allergic to tree nuts, talk to your allergist before adding coconut to your diet.
Keto Caramel Sauce
Think of this as keto pancake syrup! I will readily admit that I have not made the Keto Caramel Sauce with ghee in place of butter, so I can’t offer much advice on that yet. The butter needs to simmer and brown, and since ghee is already clarified butter, I’m not sure it will be able to do the same thing. If you are able to tolerate dairy at all, go ahead and give the caramel sauce a try. My gut isn’t big on dairy, but can tolerate small amounts of Kerrygold butter here and there.
If dairy is completely off the table, these pancakes are also delicious when topped with unsweetened almond butter, melted coconut butter, or a handful of blueberries.
Pancakes with Coconut Flour (Treat)
Also, I wouldn’t suggest you eat these pancakes for breakfast every day if you’re serious about the keto diet. It’s a nice treat and break from the norm every now and then, but not a staple to be eaten daily. We love to eat these easy low carb pancakes with a fried egg and some bacon.
