LOW CARB Protein Pancake Bites Recipe!

Low Carb Protein Pancake Bites Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

ONE word, PANCAKES! Kinda big and kinda high in carbs. Today we’re gonna change that with 2 words, PANCAKE BITES. These things have less 2 net carbs, will fit in your pocket (don’t ask me why), and are super easy to make!

Start off with a large bowl then add into it 2 large eggs, 1 large egg white, 2 tablespoons of almond flour, 4 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 scoop of my Baking Protein Powder, 1-2 tablespoons of a keto free sweetener like erythritol, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 1/2 ounces of heavy cream, 3 ounces of cream cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Mix all those up until smooth then take out a mini-muffin or cupcake pan and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. However big you want your bites will depend on how high you fill each spot. Now before the oven you have two options:

  1. You can add things to the top of your bites (like chocolate chips)
  2. Mix those things inside your bites

You could also live life on the edge and do both! After that throw them in the oven on 350F/176C for around 10-15 minutes.

So yeah, they kinda look like muffins or naked cupcakes but what makes them pancake bites is that I used a variation of one of my low carb pancake recipes to make these so they have the texture of a fluffy buttermilk pancake! Seriously, they’re delicious and super addicting…plus you get a ton of them for the “price”.

Here is the recipe:

  • 2 Large Whole Eggs
  • 1 Large Egg White
  • 2 Tablespoons (14g) Almond Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons (28g) Coconut Flour
  • 1 Scoop (30g) The Protein Chef’s Baking Protein Powder
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Sweetener
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Ounces Heavy Cream
  • 3 Ounces Reduced Fat Cream Cheese (Full or Fat Free work great too)
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt

How to make:

  2. Coat a mini-muffin or cupcake pan with some non-stick cooking spray and pour your mix in (the more you fill them, the bigger your bites will be)
  3. Add some toppings on like chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc
  4. Bake them on 350F/176C for 10-15 minutes


  • Add your toppings into your mix instead of on top!
