    • 1 cup almond flour
    • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any low carb milk of your choice)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Optional: Sweetener of your choice (e.g. stevia) to taste


    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Add sweetener if desired.
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until smooth.
    • Let the batter sit for a few minutes to allow the flours to absorb the liquid.
    • Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Lightly grease the cooking surface with butter or cooking spray.
    • Scoop approximately 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Spread the batter slightly with the back of a spoon to form a round shape.
    • Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Flip carefully using a spatula.
    • Repeat with the remaining batter.
    • Serve the low carb pancakes warm with your favourite toppings such as sugar-free syrup, fresh berries, or whipped cream.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I substitute almond flour with another type of low carb flour?

    Yes, you can try using other low carb flours such as coconut flour or a combination of both. Just keep in mind that the texture and liquid requirements may vary.

    Can I make the batter ahead of time?

    It's best to cook the pancakes immediately after preparing the batter. However, you can store any leftover batter in the refrigerator for up to 1 day and stir it well before cooking.

    Can I use a different type of milk instead of almond milk?

    Yes, you can use any low carb milk of your choice, such as unsweetened coconut milk or cashew milk.

    Can I make these pancakes without eggs?

    The eggs in this recipe play a crucial role in providing structure and fluffiness to the pancakes. However, you can try using egg substitutes specifically designed for baking, such as flax eggs or chia eggs. Keep in mind that the texture and taste may vary.

    Can I freeze the leftover pancakes?

    Yes, you can freeze the cooked pancakes for future use. Place them in an airtight container or freezer bag with parchment paper between each pancake to prevent sticking. Thaw and reheat them in a toaster or microwave when ready to enjoy.

    Are these pancakes suitable for a gluten-free diet?

    Yes, these pancakes are gluten-free since they are made with almond flour and coconut flour, which are both gluten-free alternatives to wheat flour.
