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.

Paleo Air Fryer Tostones (Whole30, Vegan, AIP, Low FODMAP)

These paleo air fryer tostones make the most addicting snack while being extra easy and crispy in the air fryer! You can use minimal amount of oil for this Whole30 and vegan recipe without any frying or splattering.

Paleo Air Fryer Tostones

Tostones (also called patacones) are probably one of my favorite things to eat. They are a Caribbean and Latin American dish made with green plantains that are twice fried. They are cut into chunks and fried until they soften and are heated through, and then you smash them into a flat discs before frying them again until they are golden and crispy. It’s just the most addicting snack.

While the fried version is the original method, I recently started experimenting using the air fryer method and I love it. It comes out just as crispy and delicious, and the process is so much easier!

Paleo Air Fryer Tostones Recipe

Personally, I feel that using the air fryer requires you to be less “hands-on” during the entire process which makes my life easier and allows me to cook other dishes at the same time. You don’t have to worry about the oil splattering everywhere, and you only have to flip the slices once in the air fryer basket.

Less Oil, Less Mess

Anytime there’s a frying or deep frying recipe, it does require a good amount of oil. And it’s so important to use high quality oils with a high smoking point like coconut oil or avocado oil for this purpose, so they don’t oxidize and cause harm to our health. I find that I don’t deep fry often, because it can actually get quite expensive in paleo cooking because these high quality oils are higher in price.

Thankfully, you can use just a fraction of cooking oil if you have an air fryer, and these paleo air fryer tostones still turn out so flavorful and crispy. On top of that, cleanup is just SO much easier because you don’t have to wipe down your countertop and stovetop from the oil splattering everywhere!

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!
