7 best keto and low carb pancake mixes: eat pancakes and still lose weight

When I first started eating keto years ago, there weren’t many keto-friendly flour mixes so I usually made my keto pancakes with coconut flour, eggs, liquid stevia, pink salt, and coconut milk.

And they tasted like coconut flour pancakes, know what I’m sayin’?

Now there are keto and paleo friendly pancake and waffle mixes that actually make really good pancakes and waffles. And all you have to do with some of these mixes is add water.

Here are 7 of the best keto and low-carb pancake and waffle mixes people are loving.

This mix has organic coconut sugar making it more so low-carb than keto friendly but some keto peeps do still enjoy this pancake and waffle mix.

Some enjoy the taste of these and some do not, but they are rated by most as good tasting. Mixed reviews there. I’m a fan of Bob’s Red Mill, but haven’t had this mix yet.

There are 20g of carbs per a serving which is ⅓ cup of dry mix. Not sure how many pancakes that is.

I like how simple the ingredients list is and how it’s free of grain, soy, corn, dairy, and gums. It’s also non-GMO Project Verified. Good stuff.

#2. Birch Benders Griddle Cakes, Pancake Waffle Mix Keto

Birch Benders Griddle Cakes, Pancake Waffle Mix Keto

As stated earlier, I’m a fan of Birch Benders Griddle Cake pancake and waffle mixes.

They taste great and are super simple to whip up. Just add water for pancakes, add water and oil for waffles.

The waffles aren’t soggy like I’ve experienced with other keto waffle recipes and the pancakes get crispy on the edges. And taste pretty damn good.

Birch Benders Griddle Cakes might have a keto-friendly taste to them, but the waffles and pancakes are still really good.

And quick to make.

A serving size is 2 pancakes at 10g of carbs. What’s a plus in my book is there’s also 11g of fat and 9g of protein in those 2 pancakes making them pretty rounded out as a keto food.

#1. Carbquik Baking Biscuit Mix

Carbquik Baking Biscuit Mix

Have you ever tried a low-carb or keto-friendly flour mix that didn’t quite give you that baked-with-flour taste? It’s like it’s almost a pancake, but not quite.

Carbquik is said to be as close to real flour as not-flour can get because it it is made from wheat flour and behaves like wheat flour.

Best of all, it tastes like wheat flour but with most of their Carbquik recipes only having 3 net carbs or less per a serving.  

Biscuits and pancakes can taste like biscuits and pancakes again even though they’re keto-friendly. How cool is that?  

It’s 16g carbs per a serving for 1 biscuit and 2g net carbs for 1 biscuit.

Ingredients: Carbalose Flour (enzyme enriched wheat, vital wheat gluten, wheat fiber, high-protein patent wheat flour, soy fiber, canola oil, salt, emulsifiers, enzymes, ascorbic acid), palm and palm-kernel oil, buttermilk powder, baking powder, egg white powder, lecithin, salt and natural flavors. Allergens: Wheat, Soy, Eggs and Milk

Macros as Prepared: 6g Fat | 16g Carb 2g Net Carbs| 6g Protein

Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup – 1g net carb

Walden Farms Maple Walnut Syrup – 0g carbs

Honest Syrup, Maple Vanilla Sugar Free – 2g net carbs

All-u-Lose Maple Syrup – 5.11g carbs
