Pecan Pie Pancakes

I love exploring in the kitchen and creating tasty keto food and writing Keto Comfort Foods was the most fun cookbook to write because I just thought of my favorite comfort foods from my former fat days and made them keto! The problem is that I keep thinking of more and more recipes that would have gone great in the book but my editor already had to cut 20 recipes from the book because it is so huge!

The other day I was making pancakes for dinner which I love doing. Who doesn’t love pancakes and eggs for dinner? It is fast, cheap and so yummy! It is almost a dessert for dinner! I saw a huge bag of pecans in my pantry and I thought, “Pecan Pie Pancakes!” That would be so tasty! I have bought pecan meal in the past but I have a pretty powerful blender that would totally do the trick and make pecans into pecan meal. So I tossed the pecans in and pureed into a fine pecan meal, then I added my other ingredients and pureed into a pecan pie pancake batter.

I already had my syrup made because I adore that syrup! And if you never made Brown Butter before, don’t worry, it isn’t that hard and you can watch this video to see how easy it is:

Here is a video of how to make Brown Butter:

If you would love a whole book filled with more than 175 comfort food recipes (most cookbooks only have 110-125 recipes) check out my latest book Keto Comfort Foods!

Thank you for your love and support!

And if you already have the book I would LOVE to have you post photos of the cookbook on social media! It helps me so so so much!

30 Day Cleanse Testimony: “Hi Maria, I wanted to share my story with you, as today is an exciting day for me, it’s the first time in years I broke below 150 on the scale… 149! In September 2015 I ended up in the hospital with an ovarian cyst rupture. I didn’t know I had it, and it caused internal bleeding.  For months afterward I felt awful while my body tried to absorb the fluid and blood in my belly. I was running low grade fevers and feeling like crap for almost 4 months. I had no energy, and as a result I didn’t go anywhere or do much, I didn’t cook, I was eating terribly, drinking, became depressed, and gained a lot of weight. I don’t even know how high my weight got, because I didn’t want to look. In the “before” pictures, I was in Costa Rica. The scenery was beautiful, but I didn’t even like looking at the pictures because I felt and looked so icky! After that I started keto, it’s been a bumpy journey, I fell off the wagon this summer for a while, but recently got back on, and have never felt better. I have been mainly sticking to keto since July, but a week ago I started your 30 day cleanse and cut out dairy and alcohol. Just 4 days ago I had surgery to remove more cysts on both ovaries. I’m still a bit bloated, but I feel great otherwise, and am not in a lot of pain. I have more energy than ever! And that’s only a week into the cleanse! I’m down more than 20lbs from a year ago! I have read 4 of your books now, and they’ve helped me stay motivated and on track. I’m excited to see how my body and health continue to improve. Thank you for your passion!” – Raya

  • Evelyn Cunningham-Thigpen says:

    how do you make pecan pie syrup? And where can I purchase low carb maple syrup?

  • Ken Zoglman says:

    My name is Ken. I have had esophageal cancer. The reason I started the Keto diet is to prevent future cancer. My weight has gone from 225 to 170. I don’t want to lose any more weight, but I want to stay on the Keto type of metabolism. My stomach was used to form an esophagus, so I’m only able to eat small meals. Have you ever experienced this condition before. Any suggestions?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Yes, we have worked with clients in similar situations. This lifestyle can be helpful as it is very nutrient dense and keeps you satiated better.

  • JoAnne says:

    Love your recipe for pecan pancakes, also love the video for brown butter. I have always thought that when I’ve done this I’ve burned the butter 😊 I also love the music you used in the video, can you tell me who the musician is please?

  • Kindra says:

    Wow, Maria! These pancakes are AMAZING! The whole family loves them. We made them using maple extract and topped them with your bananas foster syrup as you suggested, swapping out the banana extract for maple. So rich and filling! Thank you for another delicious and inspiring recipe.

    Do you think the batter will hold up in the fridge? I would love to make the batter and syrup in advance before we go camping sometime.

  • Kathryn says:

    These look wonderful Maria! Do you think they would turn out if I substitute coconut cream for the cream cheese? Thank you!

  • Gloria L. says:

    Is a serving one 3″ pancake? I need to track carbs. Thanks.

  • Jules Mantle says:

    I can’t have pecans. Do you think almonds would work? May just make a small batch to try anyway. Will let you know.

  • Lisa says:

    Maria, do you have a recommendation for the right zinc supplement? I can’t seem to find what you previously recommended. Thank you in advance!

  • Alice Yucht says:

    Would this recipe also work for waffles?

  • Lily says:

    Can I sub xylitol for the sweetners in your recipies? I cannot stand the taste of stevia. Thanks
