Best Low Carb Pancakes | THM: S

Save for later!


Everyone needs a good waist-friendly pancake they can douse in naturally sweetened whipped cream, chocolate, and raspberries.

I wasn’t a fan of the Bring Da Buttah pancakes in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, so I took a few cues from my favorite E Trim Healthy Pancakes on the page before and made them S compatible instead.


Everything gets dumped and whirred in the blender, so it’s super easy and there’s very little clean-up. Instead of egg whites, I used whole eggs; instead of cottage cheese, I used ricotta cheese; instead of oat flour, I used a combination of almond and coconut flours. A bit of vanilla, baking powder, sweetener, salt, butter (and I added a wee bit of cinnamon, but you can leave that out, if you’d like) finished it off.

The Best Low Carb Pancakes | THM S


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 2 T coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp mineral salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp xylitol
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • OPTIONAL: 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Dump all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour batter by 1/4 cup fulls onto hot, well-greased non-stick griddle and heat until bubbles form on top of pancakes. Flip once and cook for a minute or two on another side.


Save for later!

  1. What could be used in place of the 1 Tbsp xylitol. I have 3 fur babies and I don’t allow that ingredient in the house. Thank You

  2. These pancakes are excellent! They have a great texture and taste. I used cottage cheese instead of Ricotta because that is what I had on hand. These are the best S pancakes! I really don’t like the bring on the buttah ones in the THM cookbook (I love the E ones). Thanks so much for this great recipe.

  3. Thank you, Jacinda! These are the best S pancakes I’ve made yet (in 3 years doing THM). So nice to have pancakes that I can eat with bacon & eggs. 🙂

  4. Our favorite recipe! I need to triple it for our family and use about half eggs and half whites so it is a little lighter and I don’t use all my eggs up but wow so yummy.

  5. We do t have oat fiber in South Africa.. What would you suggest one can use to replace it in recipes… So excited to try this recipe

  6. The pancakes definitely had a good flavor, but I thought they were a little thin and dry. I’m looking for a fluffy pancake. Did yours turn out fluffy?

  7. I am very new to THM and these were the first pancakes I’ve had so far. I admit I was skeptical how they would turn out and if they would taste like a pancake.
    I was pleasantly surprised. These were delicious!! Even the 2yo loved them. Thanks!

  8. Second time making these in less than a week. These are so yummy! I did the fresh made whipping cream and blueberries and a cup of Joe… What a way to start the day. Thanks again!!

  9. I made these this morning with the cottage cheese adaptation. Oh, my lands. These are delightful! The first few were crepe like because I’m impatient and the coconut flour needs a minute to meet and greet the other ingredients. The remaining pancakes came out more fluffy. Such a treat on a snowy morning! I will be making these again! Next time I’m going to add a dash of nutmeg for a holiday feel. Thanks for sharing these!

  10. These were really good! I subbed cottage cheese instead of ricotta, oat fiber instead of coconut flour, and gentle sweet instead of xylitol. Big hit from hubby to wee ones! Thank you!
