Is Cream Cheese okay for a Keto Diet?
You can definitely eat cream cheese on a keto and low-carb diet. The exact carb count can vary based on the brand of cream cheese you use, so check the packaging if you want exact information.
Are eggs keto?
Eggs are keto and low carb, making them an ideal breakfast food. A large egg contains 1 gram of carb and 7 grams of high-quality protein. Eggs also contain iron, vitamins, minerals and carotenoids.
You get 1 egg per 3 of these Keto Cream Cheese Pancakes.
Is almond flour OK on keto?
Almond flour is low-carb, and healthy to eat on a keto diet. Almond flour is made by grinding whole almonds down to a fine flour consistency.
You can buy blanched and unblanched almond flour. I always use unblanched almond flour for this recipe because it is less processed, and has more nutrients, minerals and fiber.
Blanched almond flour is soaked in hot water, cooled off, then skin removed. It makes a lighter, whiter and fluffier flour. You need blanched almond flour for pastries such as macaroons.
But since we are making keto pancakes with almond flour here, and we want to be as healthy as possible, you don’t need almond flour that has been extra processed.
Use an unblanched almond flour in this pancake recipe to get more fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin E!
This is a very versatile keto pancake recipe. They are delicious even plain without any topping. But you can enjoy these cream cheese pancakes either with a sweet topping or with a savory topping.
Add your favorite toppings on these keto pancakes
To make this low carb cream cheese pancake into a sweet breakfast, I recommend adding a bit of lemon zest, cinnamon, or vanilla in the pancake batter before cooking.
If you are planning to enjoy this as a savory cream cheese keto pancake, you can add a bit more salt or a pinch of black pepper in the pancake batter.
Delicious Keto pancake topping ideas:
- Crumbled bacon and butter
- Berries (raspberries, blackberries and strawberries)

Keto Cream Cheese Pancakes with Almond FlourPrint Recipe
- 4 ounces cream cheese (about 1/2 cup)
- 4 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons almond flour (I always use unblanched almond flour)
- pinch of salt (optional)
- butter - for cooking the pancakes
- Blend everything together in a blender to make the pancake batter. It is a very thin batter.
- Heat a griddle on medium heat. Melt a bit of butter on the pan. Slowly drop the pancake batter on the griddle using a tablespoon. The pan should be hot enough so the pancake batter starts to cook immediately on contact. As the pancake batter is runny, to get circular pancakes, slowly pour on the pancake batter so it thickens as it comes in contact with the griddle. That way, the batter doesn't all quickly spread around the pan in random shapes.Help spread the batter outwards and into a circle shape with the back of a spoon. Use 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake for 3-inch pancakes.Alternatively, to make it quickly if you aren't bothered by perfectly circular pancakes, simply pour on the pancake batter and allow it to spread evenly across the pan. Cook for about 1 minute, then flip and cook for another minute or so, until cooked through.
