Pancake Bites

Want pancakes for breakfast without all the standing around and flipping? Jot down this Pancake Bites recipe quick! They are super easy, everyone loves them, and they are also great for feeding a crowd.

Whether you’re rushing through a hectic morning or simply craving a speedy snack, these “pancakes” are hard to beat. For approximately the past three months, I’ve established a routine of whipping up these treats every Sunday. We eat what we can and store the remainder in the fridge or freezer for later.

Did I mention that not only are these pancake bites light and fluffy, but they are also low carb and keto?! Yahs, they are! And, before you say it, I know they look like muffins, but the Internet people call them “bites,” so I’m sticking with it. M’kay? Cool.

How To Make Pancake Bites

Pancake bites are quick to throw together – whip up the batter, pour it in, add your fave toppings, and bake. It will take you 25-ish minutes from start to finish.

Ingredients

  • To keep this recipe low carb and keto, we will use Almond Flour, butter, Keto approved sweeteners such as Swerve, almond milk, and toppings of your choice. I used blueberries and sugar-free mini chocolate chips.

Directions

  1. We will start by combining almost all of our ingredients into a blender and giving them a whirl until completely incorporated. (Ever since my Healthy Flourless Blender Muffins, I’ve used a blender to make most of my batters.)
  2. When finished, we will pour that batter into a mini muffin pan, stud the tops of every muffin with your desired keto/low carb toppings, and bake for about 15 minutes.
  3. Let cool a bit, pop them out, and serve with a side of Keto Sugar Free Maple Syrup. It’s very good!

Tips & Swaps

  • Blending the Batter: Combining ingredients in a blender makes for a smooth, fully incorporated batter. It also makes the process simpler and cleaner.
  • Topping Choices: Feel free to experiment with different low-carb or keto-friendly toppings. Nuts, seeds, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon can add a flavorful twist.
  • Sweetener Options: While this recipe uses Swerve, you can substitute it with other keto-approved sweeteners based on your preference.
  • Serving Suggestion: Serve these pancake bites with Keto Sugar-Free Maple Syrup for an added touch of sweetness.

How To Freeze Pancake Bites

  • To freeze, place completely cooled pancake bites on a baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours or until frozen. Take them out of the freezer and put them in a ziploc freezer bag. Freeze for up to 2 months.
  • When ready to use, remove as many as you want from the freezer bag and reheat in the microwave or in the oven.
  • To refrigerate the pancake bites, store them in airtight containers and keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days.
