  • Almond flour
  • Eggs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda

  • Lemon zest
  • Unsalted butter
  • Salt

How to Make Low-Carb Fluffy Keto Pancakes

  1. Place the almond flour, eggs, oil, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, Monk fruit sweetener, lemon zest, salt, and one tbsp of water in the jar of your blender. Blend on high until smooth. Turn the speed to low and slowly add the melted butter. It should be thick but still pourable. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a non-skillet or griddle over medium-low heat and spray with cooking spray. Measure ⅓ cup of batter and pour it in the hot skillet.

Cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the borders of the pancakes look cooked and slightly brown. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side until cooked.
