A simple keto pancake recipe made quickly in your blender and baked in a cast iron skillet until puffed and golden brown with crispy edges. Much easier to make than regular pancakes and just 3 net carbs per serving! This keto dutch baby recipe comes from my new book, The 30-Day Sugar Elimination Diet.
Keto Dutch Babies
A traditional Dutch baby is a baked pancake and uses regular white refined flour and sugar so having it on your keto diet will kick you out of ketosis. Our low carb recipe has 16 grams of protein and just 5 total carbs and will not spike your blood sugar.
When you’re sick of eggs for breakfast, this is a wonderful alternative, and it's quick with just 15 minutes of baking time.
The texture is a cross between a custard and a pancake and is quite delicious.
The texture is a cross between a custard and fluffy pancakes that have a puffy texture and is quite delicious. Feel free to change out the apple pie extract and spice for either almond, banana, or vanilla extract and ground cinnamon.

Salted butter for the pan or you could also use coconut oil
Heavy cream, you could also swap this with almond milk to lower the calories
Optional Keto Toppings: Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener, sugar-free maple syrup, and/or chopped apple
Put the butter in a 6-inch cast-iron skillet and place the skillet in the oven on the middle rack. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Put the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until combined. Once the oven is hot, swirl the melted butter all around the hot cast-iron skillet. Pour the pancake batter into the skillet and return the pan to the hot oven.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until puffed around the edges and still slightly jiggly in the center.
If desired, top with a dusting of confectioners’-style sweetener, a drizzle of sugar-free syrup, and/or a handful of chopped apple or any fresh fruit. Best served fresh.
Can I make this Nut Free?
To make this recipe nut-free, simply replace the almond flour with any of these other keto flours; sunflower seed flour or coconut flour, just use only 1 tablespoon since it absorbs so much liquid.
Can I make this Keto Dutch Baby Pancake recipe Dairy Free?
Yes, swap the butter for coconut oil and the heavy cream for a non-dairy milk or canned coconut milk would also work.
You will also need to add some baking powder to allow the pancake to do the magic of the dutch puff it is known for.
Can I blend this in my food processor instead of blender?
If you don't have a high-powered blender, you can blend the wet ingredients first in your food processor then add the dry ingredients to combine.
Can I use a non-stick skillet instead of cast iron?
Yes, if you don't have a cast-iron skillet, you can use another small 6-inch skillet.
What is The 30-Day Sugar Elimination Diet?
My new book The 30-day Sugar Elimination diet is a whole food detox to conquer cravings, reclaim your health, and lose weight!
The program gives you all the tools needed to detox from sugar without the horrible adverse reactions and features a full month of delicious low carb recipes and keto recipes.
You can choose either the low carb menu track or keto menu track to follow and can change weekly to suit your personal needs.
It's a great way to get back into a clean eating lifestyle with a back to basics approach eating whole foods.
The recipes are meant for one person to enjoy but can easily be doubled if you are wanting to make dinners for the whole family. Some of my most popular and favorite recipes here on my blog are included in the new book, like my Dairy Free Cloud Bread Rolls but there are over 90 new recipes as well.
You can preorder now on Amazon and when you do, you actually don't pay for the book until it releases in December!
Preorders help my publisher as well as book stores to know how many books to stock and greatly helps get my message out there to help people learn that enjoying a sugar free life doesn't have to be a struggle! Thank you for your support!
Here is a testimony from Kristi, one of my members who took my 6 week online Sugar Detox Course and now the same information as in the online course is now in my new book, The 30-Day Sugar Elimination Diet!
