Pancakes Where Avocado Is The Star
Every ketogenic’s favorite fruit is at it again in this vegan and keto avocado pancakes recipe! Each serving of this delicious breakfast is 474 calories, contains 42 grams of healthy fats derived from avocado and almond flour, and has only 9 grams of net carbs per serving. Just 15 minutes and 10 ingredients are between you and this nutritious and filling start to your day.
Perhaps the best part about this keto pancake recipe is the fact that all the ingredients can just be thrown in the blender before pan-frying. No endless whisking, just the press of a button! Avocado adds a fluffiness and creaminess to this recipe while contributing high amounts of potassium and heart-healthy fats. Almond flour is the flour used in this recipe, and one of the best to use in keto recipes – that’s because almond flour has a good amount of protein, in addition to loads of healthy fats and fiber.
To make this keto avocado pancakes recipe diet-compliant, we used monkfruit sugar to sweeten the pancakes. Monkfruit sugar and erythritol are sugar alcohols, and therefore are not processed by the body like traditional sugar, and okay to use in keto foods. Matcha powder is listed as an optional ingredient in this recipe, mainly used for color. Matcha powder in itself is high in antioxidants and carries other health benefits so it only improves the recipe to include, but doesn’t make or break the recipe if you don’t have any on hand.

Feel free to top your avocado pancakes with whatever keto-friendly toppings you desire. We opted for some keto powdered sugar and a couple of raspberries to complement the sweet notes of the pancakes.
