Zero Carb Pancakes
I adore pancakes for dinner and these zero carb pancakes have been a favorite from my recipe testers! It is a tasty keto meal for even those of you who don’t like to cook and those of you who are pressed for time and are HUNGRY when you get home!
Want to know my trick for making food as fast as I can when I get home and I am super hungry? I plan ahead and place the batter for these tasty zero carb pancakes in my beloved Blender (click HERE to find it on sale now!) and blend it up. I also make my keto syrup the night before (I keep it in my fridge at all times!). All I have to do when I get home is fry the zero carb pancakes in a skillet (and reheat my keto syrup while they are frying) and dinner is ready in an instant! And better yet… I like to top it with a fried egg!
Almost Zero Carb Pancakes
- 20 grams pork crumbs or pork rinds ground fine
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cashew milk or hemp milk if nut free
- 2 - 4 tablespoons Natural Sweetener depending on desired sweetness
- 1 teaspoon maple extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Place the pork rinds in a blender and pulse until a fine powder. Add the rest of the ingrediuents and combine until smooth. Heat a skillet to medium heat with a teaspoon of coconut oil. Once hot, pour 1/4 cup batter in the skillet. Fry until golden brown and set, about 2 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until done all the way through. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining batter. Serve with dairy free cinnamon syrup.

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
Shirley and her surgeon came to my book signing. Shirley hasn’t seen her surgeon since working with me and cried happy tears when she saw her. The surgeon had a letter from Shirley thanking her for introducing me to her. Stories like this warms my heart
I was wondering where you get the pork dust/rinds. Do you fry them yourself or is there a place, you can recommend, where I can purchase them ready made.
Hey Deysi. (Thought I’d help our here Maria) Pork rinds can be found in almost all grocery store’s in the U.S. in the chips and popcorn aisle. They can also be found at the dollar stores (Dollar Tree, check expiration date). That’s where I get mine. I begin crushing mine in the bag itself (zip lock bags get holes too quickly), 1st putting a pin prick to let the air out and begin crushing between my palms (stress reliever!), then with a rolling pin to get it really fine. Sometimes I use my small food processor that has a GLASS BOWL to ‘fine’alyze (powder it, see what I did there 🙂 as my non-glass bowl processor got really fine scratches that made it look cloudy. Hope this helps. I’m definitely going to try these.
You can purchase them the grocery store. They are called Chicharrones and come in a bag. Usually by the chips.
You can find them in bags in grocery stores…Wegmans, Giant or any local grocery store.
Your recipe looks delicious, but I have a question about the serving size and the name of “Zero Carb pancakes.” It says it serves 1 (is that a typo?) and the recipe calls for 2-4 Tablespoons of Swerve. Cronometer shows there are 5g of carbs in 1 teaspoon of Swerve, which would equate to between 30-60grams of carbs in the recipe. Not to mention the few additional carbs from the milk and eggs. Am I missing something? Thank you!
You don’t absorb erythritol carbs.
How can you these be considered no carb pancakes when Swerve has 3 Carbs per Teaspoon?
Erythritol is non digestible.
If you go to the Maria Emmerich amazon store it is under “pantry items”……
Ooops “Maria’s Amazon Store” pantry items then FLOURS and……..
Do you know the nutritional info for these? BTW, every recipe of yours that I’ve tried (and I have tried many) has been awesome! Thanks for all your hard work!
Are you still posting nutritional labels or..?
I made these tonight. I probably used at least 2 cups of pork rinds and it only gave me 1/2 cup ground. I finished the recipe with only the 1/2 cup and the pancakes were great. When your recipe calls for 2 Cups of the pork rinds ground does that mean before ground or after? The recipe says it serves 1. If I made 2 cups of ground pork rinds that would be a TON of regular pork rinds. Thanks!!
Ha! I went ahead and ground 2 CUPS of pork rinds. I’ve got pancakes for days. 🙂
I’m guessing now it may be 2 cups BEFORE ground up: 🙂
Yes. Only about 1/4 cup ground.
I too wondered how many this makes?
Yes, I wiuld like clarification on this also. How much is 20 grams? Ground? Or before grinding?
Doesn’t matter if ground or not. 20g will be 20g.
I am wondering about the 20grams of crushed pork rind in the recipe. 20 grams would probably be only around 1/4 of a cup at best. Please clarify.
I must be doing something wrong. I used a bag of pork rinds, ground them into fine powder. I got 1 cup, so I halved the recipe. I got a very thick paste that no way resembled pancake batter. Even with adding water to the mixture it was clumpy and pasty. When I cooked them the pancakes wouldn’t hold together and just became a scrambled mess – what did I do wrong?
Yes…we need clarification…I did 2 cups of pork rind dust and it was very thick like cookie dough…I had to pat out my pancake in a round shape cause it was soooo thick!
Looks like it may have been updated since your inquiries on the amount of ground pork rinds. 20 grams ground.
I put the ingredients together and calculated this for the nutritional info using almond milk. I don’t have cashew milk.
KCal 229,. 14 gms fat, 3.4 carbs and 20.1 protein.
Where can I find the cinnamon syrup referred to in this recipe?
I made them again and no liquid added, so no milk of any kind. I think they don’t need it since the eggs add the liquid.
Delish! Very fun, easy, and substantial. I’ve made them every day this week!
made these this morning – added no milk – they were soooo good!! will be making them again!
made these this morning – added no milk – soooo goood!
Made these this morning for breakfast. They were very tasty. Followed the recipe to a T except for the maple extract of which I substituted Vanilla extract for and Cashew milk for coconut milk. The sugar is really unnecessary since you will be using syrup anyway. Great recipe. Look forward to more!
Btw, my macros if anyone would like to know:
284 cals, 17.6 g Fat, 11.8 g Carb, 23.6 g Protein, 4.2 g Fiber, 7.6 g Net Carbs
Not 0 carbs like I hoped but I can live with this damage for one meal!
I made these this morning, and they are amazing. Just like a traditional pancake, if you have enough oil and your pan is hot enough (just medium) you can get the crispy edges that I love! I am ecstatic right now ❤️ A tablespoon of butter and a little sugar free syrup sent this recipe over the top. Thank you so much for sharing!
Awesome! Thank you!
Maria…. can you sub vanilla extract for the maple ? I don’t have it at the moment.
If I double the recipe (1/2 of pork rinds ground), do I have to double the eggs, sugar etc. too?
MARIA ! can I sub vanilla extract for maple ?
ALSO …. would egg whites work in this recipe in place of eggs ?
I’ve recently discovered I can’t eat eggs 😫 I’m having a hard time finding dairy and egg free recipes that are also low carb, especially pancake and waffles recipes. What can I use to replace eggs in this recipe? Do you have any other dairy and egg free low carb pancake, waffle or dessert recipes?
Hmmm. You can try gelatin.
Thanks for NOT answering me Maria …. I been following you for years….. don’t I deserve a yes or no answer on my questions…. I don’t think what I am asking you is unreasonable. why haven’t you answered me ? I don’t want to make recipes till i get some kind of answer from you since you have made them…. i can’t afford to waste food if it doesn’t work.
Anyone else that has an answer I would appreciate it.
I’m sooooo sorry! I didn’t see your question. I’ve been working so much. I never mean any disrespect.
Can you repeat the question?
It is so easy to miss comments when I get so many:(
I don’t know where you get this overblown sense of entitlement where you think you can chew her out for not answering you fast enough when she has hundred of pages of recipes that you can enjoy for FREE. Just try the substitutions and find out, or make something else.
OK Maria…. can I sub vanilla extract for maple ?
ALSO …. would egg whites work in this recipe in place of eggs ?
thanks very much.
I’ve made this recipe several times with several different flavorings. These are completely delicious! I just crushed up a bag of chicharrones and used a quarter-cup with the eggs daily. I’ve tried the maple, vanilla, caramel, banana, and cinnamon. All the flavors were fun. And I absolutely cannot believe how amazingly wonderful your browned-butter syrups are; my husband is over the moon with the cinnamon syrup. Gorgeous! Maria, you make Keto so much fun. Thank you for all you are and all that you do. You are a blessing.
Yes, vanilla should work. Egg whites should work too.
