7 Best Vegan Keto Pancake Recipes

Vegan Keto Pancake

With there being a crossover of dietary requirements and needs out there today, you may be wondering exactly how to achieve the vegan keto diet. The keto and vegan diets require quite opposing dieting lifestyles – both of which can be restricting and not always simple to follow. 

The keto diet requires high fat, moderate protein, and minimal carbohydrates. For the vegan diet, this requires the complete elimination of animal products. Vegans can match the keto requirements with the right plant-based alternatives and enjoy a healthy meal. 

The two diets are easy to combine with appropriate knowledge, meal planning, and recipes. So, no longer will you have to miss out on your morning pancakes. Today we are revealing the seven best vegan keto pancake recipes for you to enjoy:

If you have any more questions on the vegan keto diet or pancake ideas; here’s more:

FAQ

What can you substitute eggs for in a vegan pancake recipe?

The best alternative to eggs is flaxseed. Flaxseed is a common substitution for vegan recipes as it is plant-based, nutritious, and has a similar consistency to eggs. Mashed bananas, chia seeds, and whipped tofu are also good options.

How do you make pancakes lower in carbohydrates?

Swapping regular flour for nut flour is an easy way to reduce the carb content of your pancakes. Ideal options for the keto diet include almond or coconut flour, as they are low in carbohydrates. Almond flour is most common as it adds less flavour than coconut.

What flour is vegan?

All flour is vegan. Flour is made from raw grains and is free from animal products.

Can I eat honey as a vegan?

Veganism practices eliminating all products from animals, and that includes bees. As honey is made from beeswax, most vegans avoid consuming it. 

How much flaxseed replaces an egg?

You need a minimal amount of flaxseed combined with water to replace an egg. One egg equals 1 tablespoon of flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons of water.
