Fluffy, Diner-Style Healthy Pancakes… Low Carb and Gluten-Free!

Going to keep this post short and sweet. It’s been a busy weekend! Summer term is already wrapping up, with only a couple weeks of class left.

Healthy Low Carb Pancakes

This morning, I got a craving for pancakes! I’ve been searching for a healthy low carb version of those fluffy white stacks of carb-fog-inducing bliss ever since I saw my friends chowing down on flapjacks at my favorite breakfast diner, The Golden Griddle. It’s a mandatory stop on our annual trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the end of the school year. Every May, Dukies take over this quaint restaurant for a weekend, and get served by the likes of our super friendly waitress Kathleen, and other purveyors of Southern hospitality. We’ve had Kathleen as our server for two years running, so going to Golden Griddle now feels like a special welcome from the small beach town.

These pancakes are just perfect–fluffy, light, and lacking that musty whole grain flavor that tends to be associated with “healthy” bread products. In other words, they taste every bit as good as high carb white flour pancakes! They’re not grain-free, but they are dairy-free and gluten-free if made with certified gluten-free oats. I grind mine into a fine meal in my Magic Bullet or coffee grinder. If you’re looking for grain-free pancakes, check out this recipe using almond meal from Laura Dolson’s low carb about.com site. The blend of coconut and oat flours used here is much more budget-friendly (and low in calories, if you’re interested) than a nut meal based dish. Stay tuned for a recipe for all natural sugar-free “maple syrup”! If you don’t mind sucralose/Splenda sweetened products, the Maple Grove Farms brand sugar-free syrup is a satisfactory replacement for the carb filled “real thing.”

I eat a small serving of two flapjacks as an accompaniment dish to my standard breakfast of scrambled eggs and nitrate-free bacon, not as a main meal. Double or triple the batch to share the love!

Topped with real buttah. Viva la low carb!
Healthy Low Carb Pancakes


Healthy Low Carb Pancakes


Makes 2 medium flapjacks. Serves 1.

Ingredients:
1.5 tablespoons organic heavy cream OR 2 tablespoons coconut milk
1 large egg
3.5 tablespoons water (use only three if using coconut milk)
1/4 cup sifted oat flour (made from GF oats)
2 tablespoons sifted coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1-2 tablespoons sugar-free sweetener (I used a pinch of pure stevia extract and a tablespoon of erythritol)

Preparation:
Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat, or until a drop of water sizzles and “dances” around the skillet. You don’t have to grease it. When measuring oat or coconut flour, sift a bit of it (or whisk it until the lumps are broken up), and lightly spoon the amount called for into a tablespoon or quarter cup measure. Level off with a knife. Whisk together egg and cream, and add dry ingredients. Whisk batter very well until there are no longer lumps. Let it sit for a minute or two to thicken up. Pour or scrape batter on to skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on surface of pancake. Flip and cook other side for about 30 seconds. Serve with butter and sugar-free maple syrup, or a bit of honey, if desired.

    We eat pancakes at our house almost everyday. To the point that I often get requests for something else from my kids! (I sneak sweet potato puree into ours.)

    I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun!

    O Lauren!
    Thank you so much for this recipe. I, too, have also been fighting an immense weekly craving for pancakes. This recipe comes right in the nick of time.

    I've been making my own greek yogurt lately – easy, yummy and so economical – so may try using the leftover whey in place of water in the recipe.

    Maria, the cook in our house has been reading your blog for some time and tried several of your recipes.

    Today she made this one and they were awesome. Just like regular pancakes. You can't taste the coconut flour at all and its wonderful that it doesn't have Soy flour, like other pancake recipes we have tried. This one is going in the permanent cookbook.

    Thanks so much,

    The Maple Grove Farms product does contain Splenda, but it's the fifth ingredient down, while the second ingredient is Sorbitol – which is really problematic for many people, almost as bad as maltitol.

    I haven't yet found an acceptable maple syrup substitute. I tried the DaVinci product, but it was incredibly bitter, and it burned my tongue. If you have another suggestion, I'd welcome it!

    Those look so fluffy, Lauren! Thanks for reminding me about oat flour. I had shunted it to the back of my baking vocabulary for no particular reason other than that I had been out of it for a while! I also took a note out of your book about using honey, and concocted some SERIOUSLY fabulous lemon curd. I posted the recipe! I think I'll try your pancakes this weekend, maybe for dessert. I find that if I save my slightly carbier healthy indulgences for the end of the day, I have less cravings during the day. Plus, everyone loves breakfast for the midnight munchies! 😀

I doubled the recipe but it was more filling than I thought and I have two pancakes leftover…I'm thinking McGriddle sandwiches for lunch! Mmmm. Thanks Lauren. You're inspiring.

    I added some shredded coconut, macadamia nut and sliced banana on top, a tropical twist for an already perfect pancake. It's still low carb in my book. Thanks for the recipe and i'm so glad to have found your treasure of a site. Cheers!

    Thank you so much for these! I made them last week for my DH as he has been craving pancakes since we started Atkins (tried a pork rind recipe…ok, but not great). These were wonderful. I won't be making them often as they are still on the high side of carbs since we are still in the weightloss phase of our eating plan – but they will definitely go in my "keeper" file! Plus, my niece is going to start treatment for yeast overgrowth next week and this will be a blessing to her as pancakes are one of her favorites! Thank you for sharing your talents with us!!!

I've stopped eating all sugar and refined flours, all processed foods, etc. for about three weeks. And I feel amazing. Thanks to you and your blog I think I'll really be able to make it permanent.

    THese were great. 5 year old DS doesn't love coconut flour in various low carb goodies, but these (plus butter and some real maple syrup) passed his test. 2.5 year old DD had hers w/ just butter, as did I. I split the recipe among the three of us…one bigger pancake for me and two smaller ones for them.

    Nice to have another option once in a while! Thanks again, Lauren. You truly make it so much easier for us to keep up with the low carb lifestyle.

    I just tried these pancakes and they were PERFECT! I'm on a very strict diet and have tried many pancake recipes, but they were dense and had funny flavors, but not these! They were just as good or better than the gluten ones and they are healthy. My favorite pancake recipe used to be with a bunch of white starches, not good. I am not supposed to have grain, but I splurged for these.

    Hi Lauren! I recently cut out refined sugars and flours, and I've been lurking around your site trying to figure out which recipe to try first! My coconut flour finally arrived and I had these after my morning run. AMAZING!! Mine were a little less fluffy than your standard Bisquick recipe but the density made them much more satisfying. I threw some blueberries and strawberries on the stove with some erythritol and stevia to make a fruit syrup…so good! Thank you for all of the time you put into your blog. I'm trying your black bean chocolate cake to celebrate the beginning of Spring break. =)

    Would buckwheat be an acceptable sub. for oat flour? I live in a teeny town and any speciality flours I have to travel to buy. I wonder, though, because every single GF pancake recipe has turned out flat and tough, regardless of what went into it.

    I’ve been eating low carb on the Atkins way of living for the past 5 years or so. After I started the diet, I really enjoyed the extra energy I have while eating low carb and it has increased my blood chemistry as well! I’m very thankful to Dr. Atkins. I would really recommend it to anyone looking to adopt a new healthy way of living.

    Substituted almond meal for coconut flour as I am allergic to flour and vanilla yoghurt instead of cream as I am lactose intolerant. Great that that are wheat free already!
    I did use oat bran because I didn't have oat flour, but still tasted amazing.
    LOVE these! Not only are they not bad for you, they actually contain some good essential nutrients too! Nothing better than a pancake that's good for you.

    I made these this morning and my batter was super thin and watery and never thickened up even after letting it sit. You list water in the ingredient list, but then you don’t mention it in the directions. I added 3 tablesoons of water since I used coconut milk instead of heavy cream. I tried making a pancake and it came out extremely thin and flat. Was I wasn’t supposed to add water? Also, I used the refrigerated coconut milk “beverage” from Trader Joes instead of coconut milk from the can. Could that be part of the problem?

      Latia, the coconut milk beverage will not work. It has been thinned out, so it is watery and does not contain enough fat to stiffen the batter.

    since when eggs are healthy? They are full of chemicals most of the time.
    (unless self produced by your own hens, and even in that case, you still have to be careful)
    try a vegan recipe….that would be better

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I am low carb, gluten-free, and I have usually hated all of the gluten-free pancakes I’ve had. These really hit the spot! I’m also pregnant and woke up today craving pancakes. Thank God I found your website and these pancakes! I am a happy pregnant lady!

      Hi, Sonya! Glad to hear that the g-free pancakes hit the spot. Sometimes you gotta try a lot of disappointing recipes to find a good one. 😉 Congrats on the baby!

      Do you mind if I use your nice remarks as a testimonial? I’m shooting you an email.

    Did you use a non-stick tefal pan, or a non-stick ceramic pan?

    I will be making these this morning! Cannot wait to try, they look so yummy. If I want to lower the net carb count, I believe I can do so by subbing Oat Fiber for the Oat Flour… I will let you know how it works out! I will also be making a Blueberry syrup to top them as I have an abundance of them today. Just got your cookbook, thanks! Happy Independence Day :)

    Been making these for years, and recently discovered they make fantastic waffles. We also add variety: fresh blueberries, frozen raspberries, bananas and walnut, etc. While I love this website and the ebook, this recipe is the most useful (so far).
