Can we all agree that the only thing better than a pancake is a hand-held, portable pancake? That’s why I’ve loved all the pancake muffins I’ve seen floating around Pinterest. Make pancake batter, pour into a muffin pan, add toppings if desired, bake, and enjoy. Pancake perfection!

Of course, I had to use this Pinspiration to make Keto Pancake Muffins. I already have a Keto Pancake Mug Cake recipe that has received so many great reviews (thank you! ♥ ), so all I had to do is make a few small tweaks to that recipe to make it suitable for its muffin pan debut.

Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Keto Pancake Muffins

Ingredient quantities are located in the recipe card at the end of the post.

Coconut Flour

I’ve tried several coconut flour brands, and TerraSoul is my favorite so far. Their coconut flour is light and fresh.

Swerve Confectioners

If you’re looking for a sugar substitute, you’ll love Swerve Confectioners! It uses (natural) sugar alcohols which have zero effect on blood sugar, meaning you can subtract them from the net carb count. (That gives Swerve zero net carbs.) It also measures just like sugar, so there isn’t any guessing about how much to use. I purchase the 48 oz. bags because they are convenient and a much better price per ounce than the 12 oz. bags.

Other ingredients:

  • Butter
  • Baking powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Eggs

How to Make Keto Pancake Muffins

This is just a quick overview of how to make the keto muffins. For the recipe in detail, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl, combine wet ingredients. TIP: The butter should be melted, but not hot.

Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Add to a muffin pan. If you’re not using a silicone muffin pan, I suggest using liners in your pan. Each muffin uses about 2 1/2 tbsp batter.

Now comes the fun part! Add your toppings if desired (see the section below for topping tips!)

Add to the preheated oven and bake. Remove and enjoy!

Keto Pancake Muffins Topping Tips

Topping ideas include:

You can also cook these plain and top them later. I like to add Lakanto Maple-Flavored Syrup, Swerve Confectioners, and butter.

A note about chocolate chips: because these muffins have to bake for ~18 minutes, the chocolate chips will completely melt if placed on top (as you can see in my photos). I’ve since pushed them down into the muffins and it’s a much better outcome!

Keto Pancake Muffins Tips

  • Store in an airtight Ziploc bag or plastic container in the fridge.
  • I find these taste best after sitting at least overnight in the fridge.
  • Yes, you can freeze these pancake muffins! They are perfect for meal prep.
  • As long as your toppings don’t need to be refrigerated, these can be stored outside of the fridge if necessary (e.g., while traveling).
  • If your muffins come out dry, it may be the coconut flour you used. I’ve noticed that some coconut flours are denser than others, and that can result in a different final texture. To rescue a dry muffin, cut it in half and give it a little butter and maple-flavored syrup bath. 🙂
