    Great recipe! Oat Fibre isn't really readily available here in Australia, any alternatives that will do the same job? Maybe Psyllium Husk?

    Psyllium will act completely differently in baked goods. You can try using 1/2 the amount of coconut flour, but it will affect texture and carb count.

    Is oat bran the same as oat fiber?

    Oat bran and oat fiber are completely different. Oat fiber is the pulverized outer hull, it's not part of the grain itself at all. It's 100% completely insoluble. Since it's not digested it will not affect blood sugar.

    Vilken produkt kan man köpa i Sverige i stället för oat fiber?
  8. Tracey
    I have made many different kinds of keto pancakes, these are by far the best. They come out thick and I really like the lemon zest.
  9. Kristin
    Tracey where did you get oat fiber?
  10. Kristin Parker Team Diet Doctor
    Kristin, if you are in the USA, oat fiber can be sourced from Netrition or Amazon. It's a niche product not frequently available in stores. If you are not in the USA, you may be able to get it from iHerb.

    What about cassava flour? One of my children has a severe nut allergy.

    Cassava flour is extremely high carb. For baking some people see good results using sesame seed flour in place of almond flour. A 1:1 ratio should work!

    Tracey, Netrition sells it for $3.99 a lb vs Amazon price of $13.43 a lb. Even with shipping, it ends up being about $3 less from Netrition. :)

    Yes, oat fiber is a very fine powder.

    Love these pancakes, will definitely be a favourite. I didn’t have oat bran substituted 2 tbls of psyllium husk and they turned out great and fluffy. Many thanks for the recipe.
  18. Kimberly
    I made these this morning for my kids. I used 1/3 c of coconut flower instead of the oat fiber and they turned out great. They taste a little bit like cream puffs. My 8 year old loved them and even said "Mom, thanks for making me have wonderful childhood memories! I love these pancakes!" :D
  19. Trudy
    These are delicious but how are the measurements being translated? I usually go by Gramm but 75g of oat fiber was way to much and a lot more than 3/4 cup. Ended up winging it and adding lots of cream.
  20. simone
    These were great, I also substituted 2tlb psyllium for oat fibre. Whipped egg whites.
  21. Jim
    the batter I made came out very thick and does not pour like regular pancake batter. Am I missing a liquid ingredient that is meant to soften the ingredients
  22. Annette
    Tried these but felt they had far too many eggs for 4 servings & smelt egg & left an eggy aftertaste.
  23. Gillian
    We tried these and I think the oat fiber ruined them. They were terrible. Will keep looking for another pancake recipe. :(
  24. Nancy
    I used 1/2 cup of psyllium husk in place of the oat fibre. They turned out amazing!!
  25. Carly
    Made these without oat fibre and slightly less egg and they turned out yummy. Thank you.
  26. Wedad
    Terrible pancakes, taste like eggs!!
  27. Paul Crompton
    I made these without any Oat fiber I just used 1 cup of Almond flour and cooked them on low heat and they came out great.

    These are the best low carb pancakes I've made! The texture is fantastic. I skipped the blueberries and lemon zest and added 1/3 cup erythritol and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Delicious!

    Made these this morning and they were delicious. In Canada I picked up Oat Fibre at Winners

    Couldn’t find oat fibre in shops in Australia so I used oat bran. They were the worst pancakes I’ve ever made; way too salty (and I didn’t add any salt). Would be beneficial for The Diet Doctor to provide alternative ingredients for those that don’t reside in the US.

    Unfortunately there is not a good substitute for oat fiber. You may prefer one of our other pancake recipes.

    Okay I’ve made Keto pancakes with cream cheese using almond flour . The recipe is from Keto in Pearls best I’ve ever had , even my non Keto visitors loved them ! Kim
  33. Kim
    Sorry I meant there’s no cream cheese !,,
  34. Kasia Walkuska
    The measurements are wrong on the App, used 75ml of almond flour and 75ml of psylium husk. The batter was more like cookie dough so added about 200ml of water. I’m suprised they actually turned out right.

    If I do not use blueberries at all, would it make the pancakes ketogenic low carb instead of moderate low carb?

    Yes, that is very likely. However, we do have a keto pancake recipe that features berries if you would prefer!

    I made these last week and wanted to like them, but wasn't impressed. I had tried them with some whipped cream on top and they seemed bland and lacking something. I made extra and so I put them in the freezer for another day just to give it another try. Tonight I heated a couple of them up in the microwave and topped them with butter, some chopped pecans, and a drizzle of stevia syrup. Now they are perfect. Reminded me of the multi-grain pecan pancakes I used to enjoy at Cracker Barrel! Delish.

    I am glad you were able to enjoy them.

    This recipe needs to be made so that it can universally be baked and not confined to just Americans. It's not good if one ingredient is so expensive in the UK with it being shipped from the US, that it makes it all impossible, or hardly available in Australia and Continental Europe or Ireland.

    Please can you revise this recipe so that there is an accurate carbohydrate total with an alternative to the oat fibre.

  42. Una
    The picture of the one that comes up when you click on your link is 18g of carbs! 7g is one thing, but 18g is another. Suppose to be under 20g, and thought I could incorporate the 7g one as a treat.
  43. Una
    Thanks for the tip, Paul.

    Here, here! All so America-based and yet suppose to be Swedish!

    We love the recipe as written. I make some without blueberries to use to sop up the yoke of a fried egg. Yum!
