Choc Zero sells the most perfect Strawberry Syrup. It has zero sugar and tastes just like Strawberry Jelly!

If Strawberry syrup isn’t your thing, try topping this recipe with Choc Zero’s Coconut Syrup or even the Chocolate Syrup! They also have the best Keto Maple Syrup around if you are looking to keep things simple.

However you choose to top these Strawberry Keto Pancakes, I hope they bring you joy!

Choc Zero- Keto Chocolate Syrup

Choc Zero's Chocolate Syrup is Delectable! 

I love Choc Zero's Keto Bark! It is a perfect treat after a long day! I just learned that Choc Zero's Chocolate Syrup is the exact same chocolate they use to make the keto bark, they just put it into the bottle instead of making bark! 

Put this syrup on pancakes, keto cakes, or even just fruit. I love dipping strawberries into this syrup! 

Choc Zero Chocolate syrup is back in stock and ready to be sent right to your door! 

Choc Zero Chocolate Syrup has no preservatives, no sugar alcohols, and only 5 ingredients!

Yep 5 ingredients!!!

  • Liquid vegetable fiber,

  • unsweetened chocolate

  • cocoa butter

  • monk fruit extract,

  • natural chocolate liquor.

It’s vegan and Soy and Gluten Free!

This syrup has a thick fudge like consistency! You can drizzle it over low carb ice cream and bake it into Keto Treats! I swear, I could just eat it right off of a spoon!

If you want it a little thinner, run the bottle over some warm water. Don’t worry it will thicken right back up when you put it in the fridge.

You really can’t go wrong with this low carb Chocolate Syrup. What ever you put it on is going to be delicious! But hurry, Choc Zero products sell out quickly. They will be restocked (every friday at 5pm) but my suggestion is to snag them up any time they are in stock so you never run out! :)

KETO RECIPE: Pancake Cake Bites


ATTENTION: I might have a new favorite way to eat my famous Pancake Cake!

As most of you know, we are obsessed with Keto Pancakes at our house. Recently I came up with the idea to use my Pancake Cake recipe from my Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook and bake them in one of those brownie pans that makes the individual brownies so that each one has a perfect crust around it. It worked perfectly! It makes these beautiful, individual servings of pancake bites and it also makes it super easy to include add-ins like berries, keto friendly chocolate chips or anything else you can imagine!

You’ll definitely want to make these for your next brunch or big family breakfast because each kid could get their own unique flavor!

Look how beautiful these bite sized morsels turned out! These brownie pans also make perfect little cakes, they rise up and bake nicely all the way through.

KETO RECIPE: Pancake Cake

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter, cooled slightly

  • 8 eggs

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

  • 2-4 teaspoons liquid stevia (adjust to taste)

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1⁄2 cup coconut flour

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Optional Add-ins

  • Berries: Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, diced strawberries

  • Keto-friendly chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks, nuts, Choc Zero syrup

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Grease the brownie tin well.

  2. Blend the eggs, cream cheese, coconut flour, baking powder and stevia until smooth. Add the cooled melted butter to the batter.

  3. Pour the batter evenly into the pan.

  4. Add Blueberries or Chocolate Chips

  5. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until a paring knife stuck into comes out clean.

  6. Place the cake on a cooling rack, and melt a few more tablespoons of butter on top if you wish.

  7. Serve up with some Choc Zero Syrup and Butter.

I recently put together a big All Things Keto Pancakes Post with a bunch of ways to enjoy Keto Pancakes, so if you’re a pancake addict like me you’ll want to check it out!


All Things Keto Pancakes

When I say that I have made Keto Pancakes 1 million times, I’m only slightly exaggerating. My daughter loves this recipe and after heeding her request for these pancakes countless times, I think its safe to say we are now experts on Keto Pancakes. We even make this recipe on Christmas Morning and decorate them like reindeers.

It all started with one Recipe, Cream Cheese and Coconut Flour Pancakes. I started experimenting with Keto Pancakes back in the beginning of 2017 and I liked this recipe so much I included it in my first cookbook, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.

This cream cheese and coconut flour recipe makes soft and fluffy pancakes that taste and feel almost exactly like the real thing. I top them with Vital Farms grass fed butter and sugar-free maple syrup. They have 18g of protein in each serving and only 8g of net carbs, meaning you can fit these pancakes nicely into your macros with out having to worry.

After solidifying this basic recipe, I started to play with different variations. I made a Pancake Cake that can be baked in the oven instead of on the griddle. I added cinnamon and vanilla extract, chocolate chips (KNOW Foods has some great low-carb ones), and different Sugar Free Syrups from Choc Zero. They have more flavors of sugar free syrups than you could even imagine, everything from Maple Pecan to Peppermint.

I even tried out Bulletproof Hot Chocolate in this Chocolate Pancake Recipe and I have to say, It was delicious!

For my second book, The Big Book of Keto, I settled on a Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe. To this day, It is still my favorite way to enjoy Keto Pancakes. There is something so warm and comforting about the taste of Pumpkin. I love adding Choc Zero’s Caramel Syrup to this recipe. (Is your mouth watering yet? I know mine is!)

Also included in The Big Book of Keto is this Blueberry-Lemon Cake.

This recipe is kind of a twist on my Pancake Cake recipe from my first book but with lemon zest and blueberries. I LOVE blueberries and If you are a big lemon lover you can add even more zest! You can even make mini cakes! Perfect for dessert, breakfast or brunch!

This Keto Pancake batter can also make waffles. One of the things I love about waffles, besides their perfect butter holding ability, is that you can keep left overs. Pancakes don’t reheat well, but waffles do. You can even freeze them and then reheat them in the toaster. If you are really in the mood to get crazy, try making a grilled cheese sandwich with left over keto waffles. I promise you won’t regret it.

KETO RECIPE: Festive Reindeer (and Santa) Pancakes!


KetoReindeerPancakes.jpg

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is making these festive pancakes! I started making them a few years ago and they have now become a family tradition right after we finish opening Santa presents. I make non-keto pancakes for my parents and my keto pancakes for Kaia and I.

I use my Cream Cheese & Coconut Flour Pancake recipe and then let the bacon, berries and whipped cream do the rest of the work!

You can let everyone make their own creations or you can do the honors for everyone, just make sure the pancakes have a little time to cool or your whipped cream will just melt right off!

KETO RECIPE: Cream Cheese & Coconut Flour Pancakes & Waffles

Who doesn't love pancakes and waffles?! I know I do and one of the first keto friendly recipes I experimented with was this one. It's a mixture of eggs, cream cheese, coconut flour and baking powder that makes fluffy, golden pancakes possible on keto.  

TheEasy5IngredientKetogenicDietCookbook.jpg

I used my Cuisinart Pancake Plate today so they were all uniform in size to make cute little pancake stacks. As soon as they come off the griddle I butter them up with Vital Farms Grass-fed and Pasture Raised Butter, my favorite! 

INGREDIENTS

This is two servings and makes 6 pancakes. Just double it, triple it etc... for more people! 

  • 4 pasture raised eggs (I use Vital Farms)

  • 4 oz of softened cream cheese

  • 1 teaspoon of liquid Stevia 

  • 1 tsp of Vanilla extract 

  • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder

  • 4 tbsp of coconut flour (I used Bob's Red Mill

  • 4 tbsp of butter, divided

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I am generous) 

DIRECTIONS

  • Put all ingredients in a food processor and mix thoroughly! You could probably also use a bullet or blender. 

  • Heat skillet/griddle to medium high and melt butter on pan 

  • Pour in batter, I made my pancakes about 4" wide

  • They will get puffy when it is time to flip, they won't really get the air bubbles like a typical pancake but they will set. Second side will cook faster. 

  • For waffles, heat your waffle iron, grease it (I use coconut oil spray) and pour in batter

Top your pancakes with syrup from ChocZero and you have an incredible, keto friendly meal.
