4-Ingredient Low Carb Pancakes

  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 5 pancakes 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


These 4-Ingredient Low Carb Pancakes are made without flour for the fluffiest grain free, sugar free, gluten free, low carb pancakes you’ll ever make! 


Units Scale
  • 1/3 cup creamy nut butter (no-stir nut butter works best)
  • 2 large (or 3 small) eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon flax meal or 1 teaspoon psyllium powder

Optional Mix-Ins or Toppings:

  • 23 teaspoons chia seeds to increase plant protein
  • Toppings: dark chocolate chips, fruit, nuts, etc.


  1. Pre-heat a non-stick griddle, or pan over medium heat. If using a non-stick griddle, there’s no need to grease the pan before adding the batter.


The key to creating flourless pancakes that are light and fluffy is to incorporate air into the batter. The easiest way to do this is with a hand blender (immersion blender) fitted with a whisk attachment. A high-speed blender can be used as well.

For thinner pancakes, stir 1-2 Tablespoons of milk into the pancake batter.
