Blueberry Lemon Pancakes (Keto-Friendly)

Studded with fresh blueberries and bursting with lemon flavor these pancakes are perfect for low carb (LCHF) breakfast. These fluffy blueberry lemon pancakes are astonishingly keto-compliant without that annoying eggy texture. These are far and away the best keto pancakes I have ever made.

It finally happened, my carb cravings returned. I was doing well until all the sudden it hit me like a slap in the face. And subsequently, I was feverishly looking on the internet for keto friendly variations of my favorite carb heavy recipes.

One thing to know about me is I no longer eat shellfish or pork which means I don’t get off on traditional bacon binge that most love on the ketogenic diet, although I will say I have grown to love beef bacon variations. Nonetheless, I tend to get bored on meat-heavy diets so finding suitable variations for traditional recipes outside of just veggies is really important to me. And I am willing to try every recipe until I find the right one. Kind of like this amazing pancake recipe.

I’ve tried 4-5 different keto friendly bread-like recipes and have been severely disappointed because they all taste like an egg soufflé – pancakes included. So when I across the source recipe for these pancakes on the wholesumyum.com website I was skeptical, to say the least. But I didn’t I tried them anyhow and added a healthy addition of fresh blueberries and lemon juice/zest. The outcome? FREAKING AMAZING.

These blueberry lemon pancakes are deliciously fluffy and flavorful and even easy to make with the right ingredients. You may be wondering what I’m pouring on these bad boys? I ventured to try some keto-friendly maple syrup but I must admit, I haven’t hacked that code yet so I have no brand recommendations at this time. I know the pour action looks good but unfortunately, it looks better than it tastes. What I can recommend is the addition of my keto-adapted homemade whipped cream which is the perfect addition to lather between this tasty blueberry stack.

Listen and listen well, carb cravings are unavoidable! Believe me when I tell you, with recipes like this you can totally take keto by the horns. And even if you aren’t practicing keto I recommend you try this pancake recipe as a healthy alternative. My husband who isn’t keto at all, but is often a victim of my culinary experiments, even agrees that these pancakes are legit and he doesn’t bite his tongue when it comes to food reviews. So, take our word and give this one a try and tag me to let me know what you think.

Notes

This recipe has been adapted from wholesomeyum.com
For your pancake batter, you can use any milk of your choice.
As the batter sits it may become too thick, if so, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time to avoid over pouring.
Pre-chill your hand-mixer beaters/whisk and bowl in the refrigerator before you make your whipped cream.
Ingredient measurements for whipped cream have been reduced to match the serving size of the pancake recipe (2 tablespoons per serving). This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. If you can scale the recipe, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 48 hours.
