Sweet keto and low-carb pancakes

Sweet pancakes, including pancakes that use sugar substitutes, are best enjoyed in moderation as a dessert rather than breakfast.

Some of our favorite sweet keto pancakes use fruit or berries as a natural sweetener instead of sugar or sugar substitutes. We even use a small amount of banana in some recipes.

Bananas are relatively high in carbs, but the greener the banana, the lower the carbs. Unripe or green bananas have resistant starch, which withstands digestion and has less impact on blood sugar and insulin release.

However, if your goal is to lose weight, you might choose to skip the pancakes with bananas and go with the savory ones instead.

If you have already reached your goal and are enjoying a well-balanced low-carb lifestyle or want a healthy treat for your kids, these sweet pancake options are sure to please.

Savory keto and low-carb pancake recipes

You can enjoy savory pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Imagine topping your keto pancakes with crispy bacon and fried onion or a blend of cream cheese and pesto — a combo that’s sure to please even your most discerning friends.

For an easy-to-make, elegant breakfast sandwich, try our version of a pancake-based keto Croque monsieur or keto Croque madame, which features a fried egg.

Pair them with a side of bacon or ham for an easy breakfast — or serve them alongside a steak or grilled meat for a tasty dinner.
