Paleo & Keto Sheet Pan Pancakes

Cooking pancakes for a crowd has never been easier with these baked Paleo & Keto Sheet Pan Pancakes. They are fluffy and delicious, with only 5 grams of net carbs!

Paleo & Keto Sheet Pan Pancakes

Pancakes are one of the easier breakfast items to make. You mix together the pancake mix and just cook it up on the griddle. However, it CAN be a bit more work when you are trying to cook for bigger group, when you end up standing next to the stove making a batch after a batch of pancakes. It becomes time-consuming, and the first batches may get cold while trying to get everything on the table at the same time.

Paleo & Keto Sheet Pan Pancakes Recipe

Well, I found an easy solution for making a big batch of pancakes with the least amount of work: sheet pan pancakes! Instead of pan frying, you bake the pancake batter at one time in a sheet pan, and the result is a big batch of fluffy and soft pancakes done in no time.

I decided to make these pancakes low carb, because regular pancakes are too high in sugar for me and I don’t feel my best afterwards. With these keto sheet pan pancakes, I can enjoy my love for pancakes without a blood sugar crash afterwards, and you won’t even know that these are low carb from the taste and texture!

Not Keto? Make These Paleo!

I know many of my readers are just paleo, and they aren’t necessary trying to be keto. If that’s the case of you, you can just omit the stevia drops, and then sweeten the pancakes later by topping with regular maple syrup, OR you can add about 3-4 tbsp of maple syrup to the batter and reduce the coconut milk to 1 cup.

Jazz It Up With Add-ins and Toppings

This Paleo & Keto Sheet Pan Pancakes recipe makes plain, unflavored pancakes so you can dress it up how you like it. Once you transfer the batter to the sheet pan, you can add fruits, chocolate chips, or any other of your favorite add-ins. Blueberry pancakes are my favorite so I ended up using fresh blueberries, and they turned out delicious.

You can also be creative with your topping choices as well! I like to load up on them because I think toppings make all the difference. Here are some ideas:

  • fruits
  • nuts
  • spices like cinnamon
  • jam
  • nut butter
  • chocolate chips
  • coconut chips or shredded coconut
  • maple syrup (love this keto version)
  • sour cream
  • coconut whipped cream
  • yogurt
  • applesauce
  • and… what else? Tell me your favorite pancake topping in the comments below!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line an 18×13 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix all ingredients (except optional add-ins) until a smooth and creamy batter forms. If the batter is too thick, add more coconut milk until it reaches the right consistency. The batter should be a bit thicker than traditional pancake batter.
  • Pour into the prepared baking sheet and use a spatula to spread it out evenly.
  • Top with your favorite optional toppings, if using.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cut into 12 slices. A pizza cutter works well for this purpose.  
  • Enjoy with your favorite toppings! I love sour cream, coconut cream, fruits, nut butter, cinnamon, and/or keto maple syrup.

Notes

*You can replace stevia with 3-4 tablespoons of maple syrup, and reduce coconut milk to 1 cup if you are not on a low carb diet.

Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake (Dairy Free, Paleo)

You are going to love this Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake, that’s made with healthy ingredients without spiking your blood sugar. It’s dairy free and paleo, with 6 grams of net carb!

Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake

MMMM MILKSHAKE. It’s one of those incredibly indulgent treats that I remember so fondly and miss so much ever since removing most dairy into my diet. While milkshakes are super delicious and wonderful, they are one of the popular desserts with the highest sugar content.

However, I’m always striving to healthify my favorite sweets and recreate them with cleaner and low carb substitutes, and I’m just obsessed with how this Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake turned out!

Bulletproof Keto Mocha Milkshake Recipe

This keto mocha milkshake doesn’t contain any dairy or ice cream, but you’ll never guess by the amazingly thick and smooth texture. This creaminess comes from a combination of coconut milk, almond milk, and avocado, and thickened even more by blended ice cubes.

Also, the flavor from the mixture of cocoa powder and instant coffee is just divine with a touch of vanilla and sea salt. It’s my new favorite indulgence and, best of all, I don’t get a headache and feel crappy afterwards!

What Makes It Bulletproof?

The term “bulletproof” came from the popular bulletproof coffee that’s been trending in the low carb world. Instead of starting the day with high sugar foods that’ll have you suffering a blood sugar crash with a headache and that “hangry” feeling an hour later, a bulletproof drink is full of high quality fats that’ll give you sustained energy while keeping your mind focused.

The fat is from a saturated fat source like MCT oil, butter, and/or ghee, allowing your body to convert it to ketones, which your body uses much more efficiently than carbs and sugar. You are better able to burn body fat, your brain will stay much more focused, and you’ll be satiated without hunger pains for so much longer!

I also like to add grass fed collagen for that extra boost of protein and amazing nutrients it offers.

Quality Matters

Just like always, the quality of the ingredients is one of the important parts of any recipe or food. There are so many MCT oil and collagen brands out there with questionable ingredients from unclear sources and you definitely want to avoid those.

One of my favorite brands for these kinds of supplements that’s always crystal clear about where they source their ingredients and how they are farmed is Perfect Supplements. I’ve used many of their products and they are so effective, and I love that I don’t have to worry about and research their ingredients every time I purchase from them.

  • Perfect MCT Oil: There are many MCT oils are sourced from unsustainable palm oil or soy-based hexane, or contain genetically modified ingredients. Perfect MCT Oil is one of the cleanest and purest I’ve seen, and contains 100% C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capris acid). It has been batch tested to ensure that it contains nothing but coconuts. Plus, you really can’t taste it at all and it always makes my drinks extra frothy!
  • Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen: One of the highest quality and most affordable collagens on the market! This one is grass fed, dissolves well in both cold and hot liquids, and you can’t taste it. They’ve tested it to ensure that there are no pesticides or hormones, and also that it’s free of glyphosates. Collagen is awesome because it’s an absorbable source of protein, improves the quality and strength of hair, skin and nails, supports joint health, and also improves gut function! I take this in my matcha every morning, and keep the single-serving packets around for travel and on-the-go!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

This super easy and delicious paleo keto bread is made with all clean ingredients with only 2 grams of net carbs! Such a healthy way to enjoy bread without spiking up your blood sugar.

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love my toasts in all forms, especially avocado toasts. I usually just buy gluten free bread because they are easy and convenient, but lately, I’ve been sticking to a lower carb diet because I feel so much better that way. So, in order to keep my toast habit going, I decided to make my own paleo keto bread, and I’ve been loving it!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread Recipe

This paleo keto bread loaf recipe is so easy and so fluffy. The prep time is so quick, because all you have to do is mix the ingredients together before pouring the batter into the baking pan before throwing it in the oven.

The base is made with low carb almond flour, and I just love how the texture is so much like actual bread! It’ll definitely fulfill your bread cravings without spiking up your blood sugar, whether you eat it alone or top it with your favorite spread and/or toppings.

Using the Correct Psyllium Husk

This paleo keto bread recipe uses psyllium husk powder to help with the bread-y texture. It’s actually quite easy to find these days, especially if you search online. However, not all psyllium husk powders are the same. Some of them, when baked, actually imparts a bluish-purple color to the baked good which can be quite off-putting.

I found that this psyllium husk powder is high quality, works well, and doesn’t change the color of my bread, and I’ve baked with it several times now. However, if you have another brand already on hand and the purple color doesn’t bother you, feel free to use it in this recipe because it won’t affect the flavor at all!

What to Expect With This Paleo Keto Bread

Just like most grain free breads, this bread will not rise like a regular, flour bread. Yes, it will rise some, but don’t expect it to double in size. Feel free to double the recipe and use the same sized pan if you want a true loaf-sized bread. You may need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

Also, this bread will be light and airy, and not hardy and crusty. I love toasting each slice before serving to give it a little more texture, then topping with mashed avocados or cream cheese.

It’s such a great way to enjoy bread on a low carb diet, so I hope you enjoy!
