The solution to your pancake cravings on keto: Low Carb Keto Banana Nut Protein Pancakes
I love a good pancake recipe. Like REALLY love. I’m talking breakfast, lunch and dinner kind of love. If I’m honest, I love to eat my pancakes smothered with peanut butter and low carb maple syrup. YUM! It’s like dessert and breakfast all wrapped into one.
Variations of keto protein pancakes
There are so many different low carb pancake variations floating around: protein powder pancakes, cream cheese pancakes, almond flour pancakes, coconut flour pancakes and more. Did I sound a little but like Bubba Gump there?
But between all these, how do you choose? Honestly, I think it is just a matter of personal preference. Personally, I like most of the variations, with the cream cheese pancakes being pretty close to the top of the list. But then again, I also really love eggs, so the eggy texture of cream cheese pancakes appeals to me. I’m not really a fan of almond flour pancakes as I have never tried a variation that felt light and fluffy and didn’t have a gritty texture. When done right, coconut flour pancakes seem to be my favorite variation. I’ve had a couple recipes that came pretty darn close to the real thing.
The best protein powder for Low Carb Keto Banana Nut Protein Pancakes
One of my favorite things about this recipe is how easy it is. Just through it all together and blend. No fuss, no muss, no big mess. Just mix and pour! For this keto pancake recipe I used Rootz Paleo Protein Superfood Chocolate Banana Nut Protein Powder. You can’t taste any chocolate in this recipe, but the delicious flavors of low carb banana nut bread shine through. I haven’t yet tried this recipe as a low carb waffle recipe, but if you do, let me know. I bet it would work out great. Protein powder waffles might just have to be my breakfast for tomorrow.
Looking for nut-free keto pancakes?
This recipe is a great alternative for those looking for a low carb pancake recipe free of nut flours. Many people have a nut allergy or simply do not like the taste and texture of either coconut flour or almond flour. These protein powder pancakes are a great substitution. The use of the protein powder makes them light and fluffy, while still keeping them gluten free and nut flour free. Do you have a favorite low carb pancake recipe? I’d love to hear about it.
Must-have ingredients for keto protein pancakes: protein powder and sugar free maple syrup
- Of course, you can’t have pancakes without maple syrup. My favorite keto maple syrup is from Lakanto — the flavor is spot on. You can get some – HERE
- The essential ingredient in these protein pancakes is, of course, protein powder. I recommend this Rootz Nutrition protein powder, because it has the perfect banana nut flavor, and you can’t beat the ingredients.
Let’s talk more about the Post-Workout Paleo Protein Superfood in Chocolate Banana Nut Flavor. It has minimal ingredients, is low carb, keto friendly, gluten free, dairy free, paleo, soy free, non-gmo, no artificial ingredients and no added color. You can grab some here.
Like I said, it can be really hard to find a low carb keto protein powder. Especially one that actually tastes good. I love that the flavor on this is subtle, without being overly sweet, but yet it holds up on it’s own without adding anything besides your favorite non dairy milk. When I mix up a shaker bottle to drink after my workout, I usually just mix it with coconut milk or cashew milk. BUT, my favorite way to drink it is as a Low Carb Cold Brew Protein Shake Smoothie. You’ll find that awesome deliciousness below, but first let me tell you a little but more about the protein powder.
