Easy Keto Pancakes
Delicious low-carb Keto pancakes with cottage cheese and psyllium husk.
When you hear the word pancakes it’s likely you’ll automatically think of carb-laden batters swimming in sugar and butter, but these keto pancakes are different — not only are they low in carbs, they are completely keto-friendly! Made with psyllium husk powder, which is rich in fiber, these keto pancakes would make a great midweek breakfast treat. Just one cup of all-purpose flour contains nearly 100 grams of carbs so we’ve removed this from our ingredient list and replaced it with a low-carb alternative — my all-time favorite psyllium husk. An ingredient I also often use to make keto-friendly bread.
One common complaint that comes from those on the keto diet is the lack of choice in cakes and treats as most contain flour as a key ingredient, but they’re so many alternatives that there is no excuse for not following the keto diet. With a few small tweaks, you can make low-carb, keto-friendly versions of all your high-carb, sugar-filled favorites — including these delicious pancakes!
Traditionally, psyllium husk was used medically as a colon cleanser as it is high in fiber, but it also works as an alternative for flour. It also has thickening properties that help bind the pancake batter together.
The addition of cottage cheese help gives these keto pancakes a fluffier texture that would otherwise be lost with the exclusion on all-purpose flour and the berry topping helps sweeten it up.
