Why do my Keto pancakes fall apart?
Keto pancakes will fall apart if they’re missing certain ingredients that can help keep the pancakes from falling apart.
Because keto pancakes are made with gluten free flours such as almond, coconut or sunflower flour, these pancakes lack the gluten which is found in all purpose flours that helps to keep the pancakes (and other recipes that use all purpose flour) from crumbling.
Therefore to prevent this from happening you should use either xanthan gum, eggs or psyllium husk in your keto pancake batter to keep the pancakes together and avoid crumbly keto pancakes.
How to store keto pancakes
Storing keto pancakes is very easy. Simply, place the pancakes onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Then place into the freezer for 1-2 hours or until they’re frozen solid. Then, place all the frozen keto pancakes into an air tight container or a freezer bag, seal and then place into the freezer for up to 2 months.
Common ingredients used in keto pancakes
Coconut flour – Coconut flour is another popular flour replacement on keto. It is used in many keto pancake recipes and has a sweet coconut scent and it is very absorbent and therefore used in smaller quantities. Coconut flour has 4 grams of net carbs in every serving 1 tablespoon serving.
Almond flour – This is a very popular type of low carb flour used for making pancakes on keto. Almond flour is made from grinding up almonds into a fine powder and it serves as a replacement for regular flour in keto cooking. Almond flour contains roughly 3 grams of net carbs in every 1/4 cup serving and comes in 4 different varieties including, blanched almond flour, almond flour, superfine almond flour, and almond meal.
Whey protein powder – This is another product that is used in many keto recipes such as pancakes. Whey protein is a zero-carb alternative to gluten-free flour like coconut flour and almond flour. It is used as a way to cut down on the amount of flour used in a keto recipe such as keto pancakes. My favorite whey protein powder to use in my low-carb pancakes are this isopure zero carb unflavored keto friendly protein powder.
Cream cheese – Used for adding thickness and fluffiness to keto pancakes, cream cheese should be a staple in your home if you plan on making great-tasting low carb pancakes.
Butter – Butter is for adding to keto pancakes as it makes these pancakes rich and moist without any additional carbs.
Eggs – Used to provide additional structure to gluten-free pancakes as well as used to add richness to pancakes. However, sometimes, you may not want to use eggs in your pancakes. In this case, you can check out some replacements for eggs in pancakes here.
Unsweetened almond milk – Used as the liquid of choice in most keto pancake recipes as it is low in carbs and easy to find.
Keto sweeteners – such as monk fruit, serve, erythritol, and keto brown sugar substitute. Like almost every other recipe, a sweetener is needed to bring all the flavors together in keto pancakes. These are some of the popular keto sweeteners that are used when making sugar-free pancakes.
Xanthan gum – Used to bind recipes that use gluten-free flour together, xanthan gum is another ingredient that can be used to add structure to gluten-free pancakes.
