Pancakes, bacon, eggs, sausage, doughnuts. Could there be anything more perfect than breakfast food? I would say no. No, there is not. But keeping breakfast clean and nourishing, PLUS delicious and indulgent can be tricky. And can you make it low-carb and keto-friendly as well? Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s 100% possible. Start with these Keto Turmeric Spice Pancakes with Low-Carb Syrup.
These low-carb and keto pancakes are unexpectedly and totally delicious with a flavor and texture that’s reminiscent of spice cake. Even though they are keto-friendly, you wouldn’t guess that, since they are every bit as moist and pillowy as your favorite flapjacks. “Too early for flapjacks?” If you get that movie reference, we’ll be best friends forever.
These also have a delicious, buttery monkfruit-sweetened syrup that comes together with four ingredients, just monkfruit sweetener, water, vanilla, and a little ghee. No, it’s not maple syrup, but with a buttery, lightly sweet flavor, and zero glycemic impact, it really can’t be beat.
Ok, all that to say I’m also a big, big fan of portable, make-ahead breakfasts, and these are pretty fantastic for reheating the next day. I have far too many mornings where I’m in a hurry to get to work and just don’t have time to get breakfast together. I have to say, throwing a couple of these delicious pancakes in the microwave for 30 seconds and then having them with a big cup of coffee is a lovely thing.
For any low-carb pancakes, the real trick is getting the batter VERY well blended. Because you’re typically using thicker ingredients as the base (like cream cheese and eggs), it’s a good idea to mix your batter using a blender or immersion blender. Personally, I prefer an immersion blender because it’s compact and easy to wash. And let’s be real, it’s on a lower shelf in my kitchen too.
As far as the ingredients for this one, make sure you include baking powder (not baking soda). I’ve tried several grain-free pancake recipes and the baking powder is really key to getting that fluffy, pancake-like texture. Trust me on this one.
For the spice cake-like flavor and huge nutritional benefits (all that anti-inflammatory goodness), I highly recommend you use Further Food Turmeric Tonic. Not only does it have some of my favorite spices like turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon, but it has an extra boost of adaptogens with Boswellia and Schisandra berry.
