  • Add the protein powder into a large mixing bowl with the eggs, and mix to combine.
  • Whisk in the sugar substitute, baking powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Pour the heavy whipping cream into the mixture and whisk to combine. If the mixture is too thick, add some water until it has a consistency like traditional pancake batter. If too thin, add a tiny bit of xanthan gum.
  • For well formed circles, use greased pancake or egg rings. Heat a skillet over medium heat and place a little of the batter into it. Cook for a minute or so on one side and the flip to cook the other. Repeat this process with the remaining batter.
  • Serve with your choice of keto friendly toppings.



I recommend making a double or triple batch to freeze some of them. Then, you can grab one, put it in the microwave, and enjoy a hot breakfast without having to dirty more pans.
When you freeze the pancakes, wrap them up individually in plastic wrap. Or, lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet that is covered in parchment paper - and after they are frozen, you can place them together in a zippered freezer bag.
Do not place them in a zippered freezer bag when they are still warm. This will make them freeze in a big clump that is almost impossible to separate.
Another idea you should try - mix in some sugar-free chocolate chips! Chocolate chip pancakes are my favorite ones. I like to buy them from ChocZero.
Even though they will add a few more carbs, you can sprinkle in a few fresh blueberries too.
To give the pancakes a citrus flavor without the carbs, add about ¼ tsp of orange extract and top with orange zest.
