Keto Ricotta Pancakes that are light and fluffy and have a lovely almond flavoring! Sometimes all you want is a change from the usual eggs for breakfast. These are simple to make and have just the right amount of creaminess and sweetness from the ricotta.
Yet with the addition of a little oat fibre, almond flour pancakes are just as good—if not better—than regular pancakes in terms of fitting into your daily macros.

KETO RICOTTA ALMOND PANCAKES: HOW TO MAKE THEM
Add the egg yolks, ricotta, Swerve, vanilla, almond extract, and heavy cream to another bowl.
With a hand mixer, combine for roughly two minutes.
Shortly combine after adding the egg whites. Mix the baking powder, oat fibre, and almond flour in a another basin.
After incorporating the wet components, add the dry ingredients.
A little bit loose but not too runny should characterize the batter. If more heavy cream is required, add some.
Pancake batter should be added to a skillet over LOW heat along with some avocado oil, coconut oil, clarified butter, or ghee to form pancakes that are around 3-4″ in diameter.
They could be more difficult to flip and won’t hold together as well if you make them any bigger. Consider something a little larger than a pancake worth a dollar.
It’s important to cook them on low heat with a lid on for a few minutes on each side. When you notice a few little bubbles, wait until they carefully flip them and replace the cover until they are finished.
Be patient as they prepare. These will turn out wonderfully if you wait until they are finished on one side before flipping them!
Add some sugar-free maple syrup and grass-fed butter on top. Optional: Add some texture by sprinkling chopped, toasted almonds on top!
CAN ALMOND FLOUR PANCAKES BE FREEZED?
Making a double batch of these quick and simple keto pancakes and freezing them will allow you to always have a supply of nutritious pancakes on hand for a quick low-carb breakfast.
Before freezing the pancakes for two hours, let them thaw to room temperature. In a freezer-safe container or freezer bag, put the frozen pancakes.
WHAT GIVES RICOTTA CHEESE ITS CARBS?
1/4 cup of ricotta cheese contains a little bit more than 3 carbohydrates. While just 1/2 cup is used for the entire meal, the amount of carbohydrates is extremely reasonable for your Keto macros.
- 1/4 cup of almond flour
- Oat fibre, 1/3 cup; see notes
- Ricotta cheese, half a cup
- three complete eggs, divided
- Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
- 1/4 tsp. almond extract
- 1/4 cup of Swerve candy
- Baking powder, two teaspoons
- 1.5 cups thick cream
- Ghee or clarified butter for the pan
- Optional Topping of chopped, toasted almonds
- optional maple syrup without sugar
- Using a hand mixer, whip the egg whites in a mixing bowl until soft peaks form. The egg yolks, ricotta, swerve, vanilla, almond extract, and heavy cream should all be combined in a separate basin and mixed for about two minutes.
- Add the egg whites and stir just a little. Mix the almond flour, oat fibre, and baking powder in a another basin. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet components after adding them.

- Pancake batter should be added to a nonstick skillet over LOW heat along with some avocado oil, coconut oil, clarified butter, or ghee to form 3- to 4-inch pancakes. They could be more difficult to flip and won’t hold together as well if you make them any bigger. Consider something a little larger than a pancake worth a dollar.
- It’s important to cook them on low heat with a lid on for a few minutes on each side. When you notice a few little bubbles, wait until they carefully flip them and replace the cover until they are finished.
- You can make them this way and they will come out properly if you are patient while they cook! Add some chopped, toasted almonds for texture, sugar-free maple syrup (optional), and grass-fed butter on top!
16 pancakes may be made from the batch, according to me. Depending on how big you cook them, a serving size is between 3 and 4 pancakes.The outer husks of oats are ground to make oat fibre. Oat fiber’s healthiness is it? It is 100% insoluble fibre, which has zero net carbohydrates and doesn’t dissolve in water or break down in the digestive system, making it ideal for a Keto diet. The reason I use it so frequently is because it contributes to a more conventional feel.
