Keto Chocolate Chip Pancakes
**** Updated Recipe *****
First of all, these pancakes are not just keto chocolate chip pancakes. The recipe is also for regular keto pancakes, keto toffee pancakes, and many other beautiful combinations!
I’ll be the first to admit that eggs can get tiring for breakfast. Now, I actually don’t eat breakfast at breakfast time, but I eat my breakfast at lunchtime.
I’m a creature of habit and eat a lot of the same things. However, sometimes I just don’t want to eat eggs! I’m sure you can relate.
Now, I’m not opposed to making things with eggs IN it, I just don’t always want eggs. No scrambled eggs, no sunny side up eggs, no hard boiled eggs.
These are the times that I make things like these fluffy keto chocolate chip pancakes.
Or what about regular pancakes with toffee flavoring and syrup? Yes, of course!
And if you are looking for a similar recipe, with a slightly different taste and texture, check out these yummy almond flour pancakes!

It is super convenient to have a griddle. If you don’t have one, it is no big deal.
I make a ton of these and like to have them all warm and have everyone eat at the same time. This griddle is the one that I have and I just put on the stove and I can make twice as many at a single time.
I also have a standalone griddle, but honestly, one you can just throw on the stove is super easy!
HOT KETO RECIPE – Keto Double Chocolate Donuts
I chose to use liquid stevia for the sweetener, but it is optional. When I choose to not have a “flavor”, I leave out the stevia because it is truly optional.
When I do use it, for example, I didn’t want any gritty feeling that can sometimes come from using erythritol or monk fruit. This recipe needed something smooth and that would go under the radar from a texture perspective!
There are even different flavors like these liquid stevia flavors, so you can get fun and creative if you want! I just use the regular one but there are other recipes where I use flavored ones.
Keto Chocolate Chip Pancake Flavor Options
Want to spice these up a bit? Use the optional liquid stevia and choose a fun flavor! I normally use toffee flavor when I use it!
The other flavor options are discussed below for toppings.
Keto Pancake Toppings
Now, often a frustration when making new recipes (like these keto chocolate chip pancakes) is what to do for things like toppings. Let me guess – you like maple syrup? I actually do NOT like maple syrup on pancakes but I also know I’m in the minority!
Let me assure you that there ARE options. Just like the ones you used to have!
The brand that makes the monk fruit that I use also produces a yummy sugar-free maple syrup! Now, even though it is sugar-free, it still has carbs. I know, I know. BUT out of the 9 carbs per serving, 3 are fiber and 5 are sugar alcohols (monk fruit and erythritol blend) – so enjoy!
As for me? I use butter! Or this delicious keto buttermilk syrup! Whatever topping you choose – these keto chocolate chip pancakes will be a special morning treat!
How do you keep chocolate chips from sinking in pancakes?
Well, this one is an easy one for me! One of the problems, when you add chocolate chips to the batter, is that they DO sink and then you are left with the first few pancakes that have minimal chips and the last few that are overloaded with them.
I add the chocolate chips to each pancake so that I can control how many are there! You add the batter to the pan and then sprinkles the number of chocolate chips you want onto the batter in the pan.
Problem solved! See below!
Then you flip and get a nice fluffy pancake with an even number of chocolate chips!
Do chocolate chips melt in pancakes?
Not really! I mean, a little, but they mainly stay in their space.

- In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium, and baking powder.
- Add melted butter, eggs and optional liquid stevia. Mix well.
- Heat oil of choice over medium heat. I start with 1 tablespoon.
- Once pan is hot, add dollups of batter (a little less than ¼ cup worth).
- Add about 10 chocolate chips to each dollup if desired.
- Once the batter starts to bubble, flip the pancakes.
