    Is it too much to ask if you could add their calories as well?
  3. Hi Kum!

    If you hover your mouse over the symbol for "Strict/Moderate/Liberal Low Carb" on the pictures for all our recipes then you will get the nutritional facts.

    The amount of displayed carbs is net carbs (Total amount of carbs - fiber).

    But we have avoided to state the calories. Our recommendation for most people is to avoid calorie counting.

    Why do we need to avoid calorie counting?

    Can I replace the coconut milk with whole milk? Just cause I'm not such a huge fan of coconut milk and prefer dairy.

    If you replace it, better use full fat cream instead of milk. Any kind of normal milk has a lot of carbs.

    I just made these so yummy and had them with the low carb jam done with strawberries instead of raspberries. Really nice even though still getting used to them not being sweet. The pancakes came out great but took me a little while longer to prepare and cook than noted. Still worth it!

    These are so light and fluffy.. even my husband (not LCHF) said they were good! I can still have pancakes on the weekend! Will definitely make these again. Delicious!!
  9. Bobby
    on the pancakes what do they consider a serving
  10. Steph
    Can the recipe be more specific on how many pancakes and serving size?
  11. Dana
    I made these for the first time today. They cooked nicely, but I wasn't the biggest fan of the taste, so I don't know if I would make them again, but if someone is really missing that morning pancake, they would probably like these well enough.

    My family did not like these at all! It was a complete waste of ingredients and time. They took one bite and spit them out. I was trying to reduce our carb count so I tried these instead of the ones I usually make with the cottage cheese (so much quicker and tastier too). I like coconut, but this was too much. They also came out dense and somewhat dry even though I followed the recipe exactly.
  13. Eric
    I tried reducing the servings to two for myself, but the batter didn't look smooth with the suggested amounts and they ended up coming out dry and dense. Any tips?
  14. Toni
    I had them with chilli sauce and sour cream
  15. Wendy
    I made these for the first time this morning and didn't really care for them. It was ok that they were savory rather than sweet, but I just didn't care for the grainy, dry consistency. I will try the other pancake recipes next time.
  16. Melissa
    I just made these this morning and thought they were fantastic! They taste like coconut and contrary to other comments on here I found the same dryness level as a regular carb pancake. I cheated a tiny bit and put sugar free syrup on them... but didn't need too much because they were already kind of sweet and tasted like coconut! An important point is that I used the recipe for 4 people, and that was only enough for 2 people... if I would have chosen 2 people we would have only had 1 pancake each. The recipe for 4 people gave each of us 4 small yet dense pancakes, and we are surprisingly full!! Can't wait to make these again!

    Do you have a cookbook? Using a lot of ink.

    No, not yet.

    I loved these and will try with the hazelnut spread recipe next time. I made half the mixture, which made 6 small pancakes and found I was full with 3 .
    I have found that , depending on your flour, the mixture can be drier sometimes...I just added a little water and they came out fine.
    Took me a bit longer to prepare but mainly because it's a different method than I normally would sure once I get making them regularly I will speed up my time considerably.

    I'm not keto but I appreciate the name change!

    Don't eat these expecting IHOP cakes, these are light and fluffy but the texture is different, more hearty; and they are super filling. Half way through my second (I made them, about 6 inches) I hit a wall and couldn't finish them. I didn't use coconut milk from a can, rather I used the stuff found with other almond/soy/cashew/coconut milks. In particular, the coconut almond blend, unsweetened with 2g carbs. These pancakes were A HIT. They were a bit of work to make first thing in the morning, but they were worth it on Saturday morning.

    So good. Added a dash of vanilla extract and topped them with a berry "compote." Simply defrost frozen berries in butter till warm and soft. Delicious.

    Tonight I just had a salad with Greek yogurt for dinner but now I'm hungry and it's bed time 11 pm .
    I thought water would help , it didn't , should I eat.?
