For everyone that wants a change from almond flour pancakes or can’t have them, this keto coconut flour pancakes recipe is for you! These fluffy cream cheese pancakes have coconut flour added, for the perfect low carb nut-free version. And since these keto pancakes with coconut flour require just 7 ingredients and 10 minutes, they come together super quickly. They are the best combination of coconut pancakes and cream cheese pancakes!
There’s already another recipe for keto low carb pancakes on the blog that includes coconut flour, but that one contains almond flour as well. I know some of my readers are allergic to nuts, and I’ve had repeated requests for a nut-free keto pancakes recipe… so, here it is! (Coconuts are botanically fruits, not nuts, so are okay for most people trying to be nut-free – but you know yourself best.)
This cream cheese pancake recipe was originally published on September 4, 2017, and was republished in May 2020 to add process pictures and useful tips.
I originally posted this recipe right after Labor Day. After a weekend of burgers on the grill, cauliflower potato salad, Caprese salad skewers, and strawberry tart, we had a lazy weekend morning starring the best coconut flour pancakes recipe I’ve ever made – yep, this one!
What Are Coconut Flour Pancakes?
Coconut flour pancakes are just like they sound – they are keto pancakes made with coconut flour instead of white flour! I make them using my Wholesome Yum Coconut Flour.
Thanks to the absorbent qualities of coconut flour, you only need three tablespoons of coconut flour for the entire batch. That means you end up with actually fluffy coconut flour pancakes that are low in not only carbs, but calories too – and they don’t taste like it.
How To Make Coconut Flour Pancakes
These coconut flour keto pancakes are ready to be stacked, syrup-ed, and devoured in just 10 minutes:
TIP: Make sure your eggs and cream cheese are at room temperature. This will ensure a smooth batter.
TIP: The batter will be thicker than a traditional pancake batter! This is normal. You can thin it out if you really want to, but don’t have to – and too much liquid will make these pancakes soggy.
TIP: For the best coconut flour pancakes, flip them when they start forming bubbles either on top or at the edges. You can gently slide a thin turner underneath to see if they stay together enough to flip.
They are done when they are browned on both sides. How much they brown will vary depending on the temperature of your pan.

You probably already have many of these – if not, check my keto pantry list to stock up on these and other keto basics.
Are coconut pancakes healthy?
Yes, this keto pancake recipe with coconut flour is healthy! They are naturally sweetened, grain-free, and packed with protein and healthy fats.
How many carbs in coconut flour pancakes?
You’ll never guess there are only 260 calories and 4g net carbs in a generous serving of four 3-inch pancakes.

What do coconut flour pancakes taste like?
These coconut flour pancakes taste like a traditional pancake – fluffy, slightly sweet, and incredibly delicious! You might notice a mild coconut flavor if you have sensitive taste buds, but it’s not overpowering at all.
How are these different from other cream cheese pancakes?
Traditionally, cream cheese pancakes are made with just two ingredients – eggs and cream cheese. You’ll find how to make them in my mascarpone crepes recipe, which is essentially the same thing. Those are delicious, but in my opinion, too flat to be considered real pancakes. They are closer to keto crepes.
Keto cream cheese pancakes should be fluffy, not flat! Who’s with me? That’s why this cream cheese pancake recipe includes coconut flour – it makes them thicker and fluffier.
Can I omit the cream cheese?
No, I don’t recommend it for this recipe. If you can’t have dairy, you can try a dairy-free cream cheese, or make one of my other pancakes recipes instead – there are several options at the bottom of this post.
Can I make these pancakes with almond flour?
You can make pancakes with almond flour, just not this recipe. If you want to use almond flour, I recommend getting super fine blanched almond flour like this to make this almond flour pancakes recipe instead.
