Can you say keto breakfast perfection? Because with these low carb peanut butter pancakes, your mornings are guaranteed to shine.

Do you want to learn the art of low carb peanut butter pancakes? It’s easy. 

Stick as close to me as peanut butter does to our top grade pancake, and check out the ingredients below!

Low Carb Peanut Butter Pancakes Ingredients: 


All Time Champ: Peanut Butter!

Peanut butter is like chocolate in that almost everyone is in love with it one way or another.

It’s this creamy, salty, sweet, nutty and earthy spread that works its magic almost as soon as it touches your tongue. 

It explodes into your mouth in such a way that takes away all troubles.

But it’s not all creamy goodness and delight, it’s also one of the healthiest snacks in keto

In moderation- maybe a couple of tablespoons of all natural peanut butter- it most definitely won’t damage your keto diet. And it’ll make you very happy!

Since it’s one of those perfect keto snacks, it’s only natural to create a flavor with it for our keto peanut butter breakfast. 

Peanut butter in and on pancakes- what could go wrong?

Choczero Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup!

To be completely honest, I had the the idea to make my own low carb peanut butter pancakes when I discovered this awesome and deliciously sinful chocolate syrup!

It was a match made in heaven! Surely this chocolate syrup was made just for my keto peanut butter breakfast pancakes!

It was an explosion of favorite flavors inside my mouth. 

Peanut butter wasn’t always a favorite of mine growing up, but then I discovered keto desserts!

You guys know I go crazy for chocolate. And I did go crazy, especially with this peanut butter and chocolate combination.

Of course, I have to say, this sugar free chocolate syrup is not just the perfect complement to my low carb peanut butter pancakes, it’s a partner topping for almost everything!

You can drown your food with it to make it more delicious and appealing and I am not going to stop you (maybe I will, once), because I’d want to do the same thing too.

This chocolate syrup is so sinful, it ought to be banned, for the safety of all, of course, but more for mine.

It’s an addiction. An affliction. I just can’t help myself. It’s too good!

Do Not Overcook

This is a warning I almost always include in most of my recipes, and I stand by it, especially with these keto peanut butter breakfast pancakes.

These cook faster than regular pancakes, and I don’t want you disheartened after eating an overcooked and dry peanut butter pancake. 

It’s an experience only when perfected.

Once you’ve poured the mix onto your heated skillet, give it around three to four minutes until you see some bubbles here and there.

Then, you can check underneath if it’s lightly browned and if the pancake has achieved its perfectly puffy look.

Once it has, you can flip it and allow the other side to cook for around two to three minutes.

Just make sure you don’t undercook it that it falls apart, or overcook it that it dries out.

Then, you have the option to make a peanut butter syrup for your topping, or go with my newest discovery, ChocZero Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup.

Either way, I’m sure you will see Valhalla, or Heaven, or Eden, or Elysium, or all of them at once. Yes, I’m pretty certain.

Substitute For Sugar In Pancakes

What are some substitutes for sugar in pancake recipes? I’m sure you know that I prefer Monkfruit sweetener.

It’s perfectly sweet without the aftertaste other people claim alternatives have, which is easily recognizable in pancake batter. 

It’s healthy and perfectly natural, albeit a little hard to come by.

Another substitute for sugar in pancakes option is erythritol-a sugar alcohol that is naturally derived from plants and fruits.

It doesn’t affect the blood sugar levels of most people, which is why this is very popular with people with diabetes.

It’s 70% as sweet as sugar, though, so you have to make sure to adjust accordingly. 

And, it doesn’t have a bitter or chemical aftertaste, either!

Stevia is also an option. It was my go to alternative before I discovered monkfruit. 

It has the same health benefit as monkfruit, although some people claim an unpleasant aftertaste.

Personally, I think stevia is a good substitute for some recipes. 

The aftertaste is something that, in my experience, all substitutes have, when you have added too much in the mixture, or batter, in this case.

That said, you can also use Sucralose, Xylitol, etc., it’s totally up to you! 

You can experiment a bit with these substitutes for sugar in pancakes to find out which one you are most comfortable with.

Once you find your substitute for sugar in pancakes soul mate, you can start building your own recipe collection, or you can carry on following my awesome keto recipes in this blog- whichever suits you best! 

Although, I have to say, personally, I prefer the latter.

These low carb peanut butter pancakes are not only good for your physical health, but also for your emotional and mental well-being.

Pancake Mornings 

There’s something in these kinds of food that just lifts your spirits and cheers you up. And with only 2.5 carbs per pancake it’s just inevitable.

So my advice is this: whenever you see threatening clouds in the sky, or you wake up particularly sad or out of sorts, hunt for the ingredients to this keto peanut butter breakfast pancakes and enjoy a sudden lightening and shifting of your mood, so that you can start your day right!

And don’t forget to add a sprinkle of positivity to the batter, so that your day starts out as beautiful as these pancakes!
