Author ChihYu Smith

Ingredients

  • 12 medium raw shrimp (about 1/2 lb), peeled and deveined
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt plus a pinch
  • 1/8 tsp ground white pepper
  • 5 tbsp chopped scallions plus more if you like
  • 1 tsp arrowroot starch
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ghee
  • 2 medium firm (not ripe) tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • Toasted sesame oil for serving

Instructions

  • Blanch the shrimp by bringing a pot of water to boil, then add the shrimp. As soon as the shrimp turn pink and start curling, scoop them out and drain. Set aside.
  • Place the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the white pepper, and 1 tablespoons of chopped scallions in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the arrowroot starch with a little less than 1 tablespoon of water and add the egg mixture and gently whisk. Add the shrimp to the egg mixture.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of ghee, and lower the heat to medium. Add the shrimp and egg mixture. Gently stir-fry until the eggs are about 70 percent cooked, similar to soft, runny scrambled eggs. Scoop the mixture out of the pan and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of ghee to the skillet, then add the remaining 3 tablespoon of scallions, the chopped tomato, and the tomato paste. Season with a small pinch of salt. Sauté for about 10 seconds. Add the shrimp and egg back to the pan and give a quick toss, about 5 seconds.
  • Serve hot with cauliflower rice. Drizzle with sesame oil and top with more scallions, if desired.

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!

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 12 slices
Calories 236kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk or more, if needed
  • 1/4 cup ghee melted and cooled
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 drops liquid stevia* omit or see notes if you are not keto
  • Optional add-ins: berries, chocolate chips, nuts, etc

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.

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!
