Egg Fast Pancakes

Never enough recipes for an egg fast

Agree? I think that to keep someone motivated for doing a whole 5-days egg fast, it is essential to plan the fast out in advance (to some degree at least) and keep it safe from becoming boring and mundane.

Naturally, everyone who’s gone keto and loves pancakes knows about cream cheese pancakes or greek yogurt pancakes. But some of us, especially if female, like (or perhaps even need) to keep away from dairy products when noticing a weight loss stall or weight gain. While the “official” rules of egg fast allow for a few ounces of cheese per day, I think alternatives to dairy should be found and used.

Because of potential problems that dairy might bring, I’ve come up with dairy-free pancakes that I make for breakfast regularly. I top them with whatever I like, may it be cream cheese, coconut cream, or sugar-free dark chocolate topping (when not egg-fasting). Depends on whether I want to avoid dairy entirely or not. The egg-fast pancakes are relatively fragile but still “flippable” and, with a carefully selected topping, very filling and nutritious.

Living a ketogenic lifestyle, one starts to think about treats they miss from their old way of eating. Pancakes are a staple of life for so many of us. I will never forget the ones my grandma used to bake when I was a kid. These days baking pancakes for kids is simply so much fun. So why not make sure you can have some, too? Keto pancakes are a great solution for us!

The topping

When not egg-fasting, I add a tablespoon or two of coconut flour. I like the sweetness and the density it adds to the pancakes. If you don’t need to avoid dairy, it is great to have more room for cream cheese topping because of no cheese in the batter. My suggestion is mixing 2 oz. of cream cheese with a tablespoon of melted butter, vanilla extract, and sweetener of choice. If avoiding dairy, use coconut cream instead.

Instructions
  1. Using a hand electric mixer, whisk eggs and salt for 30 seconds. Add erythritol and cream of tartar and keep mixing on high for 2 minutes. The batter gets at least double in size and very creamy. Add psyllium and mix just until incorporated.

  2. Heat the pan with butter. Pour the batter into the pan (or distribute to 2 - 3 smaller pancakes) and cover with lid. Cook on medium-high. Wait for a couple of minutes for the pancake to cook - the top of the pancake must not be too wet. At this point, you can stop cooking and flip the pancake onto a plate, or flip the pancake around on the pan to turn brown on the other side.

    I prefer just flipping it onto a plate to keep it fluffier.

  1. Can u still use low carb syrup on the pancakes?

    • My Sweet Keto

      During the egg fast, I would watch carb count closely. If the low carb syrup isn’t 0 net carbs, I would avoid it. I would also avoid IMO syrups. All can induce cravings. But in the end, it is up to you.

  2. This popped up for me with perfect timing! I am planning another egg fast and like you said,it can get boring. Can’t wait to try this over the weekend! I make up many recipes too but enjoy trying others as well. Thank you!

      Yes, the recipe counts for one serving, which is around 266 kCal. One serving can be either one big pancake or a couple of smaller pancakes.
