Why Mess With Perfection?
After spending a week perfecting our Keto Bacon Pancakes recipe, it’s hard to see why we would ever stray and make a different version. But what about the days when you don’t want any bacon;? What if you are craving some fruit?
Well, our quicker, Blender Pancakes were made for mornings when you don’t have the luxury of time. And our Blueberry Pancakes recipe today is dairy-free and still just as easy! The batter is still made in a blender but doesn’t have any butter or whey protein. Even better, these blueberry pancakes are paleo-friendly! Every now and then, we swap out our favorite low carb sweetener, erythritol, for a hint of stevia.
We love stevia and we’ve gotten used to the taste. The only problem with using stevia in baking is that it lacks the bulk that erythritol adds. Because stevia is so sweet, you only use as little as 1/60 of a teaspoon! That can run you into some issues when a recipe calls for a cup of erythritol and you substitute it with so little stevia. The sweetness may be the same, but you end up with a lot less batter. Depending on your recipe, this substitution may also mess with how your foods bake. Sometimes a recipe needs that perfect balance of quantity and sweetness in order to turn out correctly.
For these low carb blueberry pancakes, a lot of sweetness was already coming from the blueberries, so we decided forgoing the erythritol wouldn’t be a deal-breaker. If your blueberries are a little tart, you can add a few extra drops of stevia to make the batter sweeter. However, when blueberries are in season, they are so juicy, tender, and sweet on their own! By the way, if you love blueberries, you’ll love this keto blueberry muffins recipe too!
If you don’t have any blueberries on hand, this recipe also works great with fresh sliced strawberries and also fresh raspberries. Since berries are all acceptable on a keto diet (in moderation of course) you can use any of these tasty little treats to make perfect low carb pancakes. Frozen berries will work in a pinch as well. What about mixed berries? Absolutely! There are so many ways that these pancakes can be made while still being keto-approved- it’s like a miracle recipe!

We think this recipe is better than what a restaurant can offer anyway!
