One of the most common things people say they miss on a keto diet is bananas. And while these are off limits even in small amounts, there’s a trick I like to use to re-create all the banana baked goods I used to love – banana bread, banana muffins, and now, keto banana pancakes.
Not only are the almond flour banana pancakes made with my healthy (and new!) Wholesome Yum Keto Pancake Mix and major banana flavor (but no actual bananas), but they won’t leave you hungry 10 minutes later like most high-sugar pancake meals.
This mix is based on my super popular keto pancake recipe, which has hundreds of five-star reviews, so you already know it will be good. 😉 I’ve perfected it to make fluffy, delicious classic pancakes – in just 15 minutes and with only 4 grams net carbs in a generous serving (5 pancakes).
And with the easy recipe below, you can effortlessly turn the mix into sweet and nutty low carb banana pancakes!

- Milk – You can use cream, almond milk, or coconut milk!

Almond Flour Banana Pancakes FAQs
Are banana pancakes keto friendly?
Most banana pancakes are made with white flour, lots of white sugar, and bananas… definitely not keto!
So, we needed our own low carb banana pancake recipe. This version is made with healthy Wholesome Yum Keto Pancake Mix, plus we’re using natural banana extract instead of bananas, for the same flavor without all the sugar.
How many carbs in banana pancakes?
Regular banana pancakes are quite high in carbs, but these keto friendly banana pancakes have only 4 grams net carbs per serving – and that’s a generous serving of 5 pancakes!
Can I make these without eggs?
Possibly. I haven’t tried it, but you might be able to use flax eggs in this recipe.
Can I use actual bananas?
No, using actual bananas would make these high in carbs and no longer keto friendly. They would also change the consistency of the batter, so I’m not sure it would even work. (The bananas shown in the photos are for garnish only.)
Storage Instructions For Banana Pancakes
Can you make them ahead?
Pancakes are best made fresh, and these are so easy that you can be eating them in just 15 minutes.
But if you want to make them ahead or have leftovers, store them in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Can you freeze almond flour banana pancakes?
Yes, you can freeze the pancakes for 2-3 months. Place pieces of parchment paper in between them, so they don’t stick together.
I prefer to reheat already cooked pancakes in the oven, until hot, but the microwave will work as well.
TIP: Spread a little butter on pancakes before reheating, to avoid drying them out.
Low Carb Banana Pancake Toppings
You’ll notice these photos have slices of banana on top – I couldn’t resist the visual because that is how they taste! But in reality, banana slices as toppings would not be keto friendly. Use these topping options instead:
- Wholesome Yum Keto Maple Syrup
- Keto Fruit – this would mostly be fresh berries
- Keto Whipped Cream
- Keto Raspberry Sauce
- Extra Walnuts – or any other keto nuts
What To Serve With Banana Pancakes
Healthy low carb banana pancakes don’t necessarily need anything else, but if you want something extra, here are some great pairings for breakfast or brunch:
- Keto Butter Coffee– try it with sugar-free vanilla syrup!
- Oven-Baked Bacon
- Avocado Omelette
- Keto Egg Muffins

Lightly oil a large non-stick skillet or pancake griddle. Preheat by placing over medium heat on the stove for a couple of minutes. (It's ready when a drop of water added to the pan sizzles.)
In a large bowl, whisk together Wholesome Yum Keto Pancake Mix, eggs, milk, oil, and banana extract until completely smooth and no lumps remain.
Using a spatula, fold in the chopped walnuts.
Pour the batter onto the griddle 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) at a time. Cook for 60-90 seconds, until pancakes are golden on the bottom and bubbles form on the top. Flip and cook for 60-90 seconds.
