Happy Labor Day to all my U.S. readers! We “celebrated” early with our kids and parents by hosting a barbecue at our house yesterday. It was a last hurrah of summer! That meant burgers on the grill, cauliflower potato salad, Caprese salad skewers, and strawberry tart. Today, we’re having a more lazy immediate family day. We started with my favorite pancake recipe with coconut flour: easy coconut flour pancakes made with cream cheese!
Pancakes with Coconut Flour for Busy Mornings
I hate to admit that I’m actually working this morning. Balancing this blog, working a full time software job, and raising two kids all at once has been a challenge, to say the least. I often find myself squeezing in some time to work each day, even on weekends and holidays. I really need to take some time off, but I do love my three jobs so much that often they don’t feel like work.
Being able to pull a quick low carb breakfast out of the freezer has been a total lifesaver! It really helps when I’m busy and my family wants breakfast quickly in the morning. We recently switched my older daughter from organic whole milk to unsweetened almond milk at night, and now she wakes up extremely hungry.
These easy cream cheese pancakes with coconut flour are one of our favorites right now to start the day. I make them fresh when we have time, or pull out frozen ones when I’m in a rush. Amazing both ways!
Cream Cheese Pancakes and Coconut Flour Pancakes in One
There’s already another coconut flour pancakes recipe on the blog, but those are keto low carb pancakes made with almond flour and coconut flour. I know some of my readers are allergic to nuts, and almond flour can get expensive compared to coconut flour. (If you’re wondering, this is the best deal on almond flour I’ve found so far!) I’ve had repeated requests for a nut-free pancakes recipe.
I also have a mascarpone crepes recipe that is very similar to cream cheese pancakes. My husband actually prefers the crepes to fluffier pancakes. I do agree that cream cheese pancakes (and mascarpone ones) are delicious, but there’s a caveat.
In my opinion, those types of traditional cream cheese pancakes (made with only eggs and cream cheese) are too flat to be truly considered real pancakes. They are much more similar to crepes, even if you make them pancake-sized. Keto low carb pancakes should be fluffy, not flat! Who’s with me?
Fluffy Low Carb Coconut Flour Pancakes
If you want your pancakes with coconut flour to be fluffy, you have to try these. They are the best combination of low carb coconut flour pancakes and cream cheese pancakes!
Thanks to the absorbent qualities of coconut flour, you only need three tablespoons of coconut flour for the entire batch. That means you end up with actually fluffy coconut flour pancakes that are low in not only carbs, but calories too – and they don’t taste like it. You’ll never guess there are only 260 calories and 4g net carbs in a generous serving of four 3-inch pancakes.
You’ll love topping these low carb pancakes topped with homemade sugar-free maple syrup! What other toppings do you like on your pancakes?
