Peanut flour pancakes are a simple recipe to make out of that jar of peanut flour you have in your cupboard, wondering what to make with it. Apart from smoothies. A great low carb and gluten free breakfast that is easy to make.
Peanut flour makes a light and delicious low carb and gluten free pancake. You could make them as thick as you want them, but we have them just above a light thickness. This mixture would be great in a waffle machine too. I am hunting for a waffle machine over the island but have yet to find one. There must be one in a small corner shop somewhere. Well, that’s what I keep telling myself! It’s the same scenario as hunting down a spiralizer on the island. I found one once in a hardware store when I was looking for paint. A rather strange collection but hey, welcome to island shopping!
These peanut flour pancakes are a wonderful Sunday morning breakfast as they are filling as well as being delicious. They are a welcome reward for a long walk on the beach with the dogs. Especially as we get up early to walk them. I will cook a batch of these then crawl back to bed for a “power nap”.

WHAT IS PEANUT FLOUR?
Peanut flour is a type of flour made from ground, roasted peanuts and is also known as peanut butter powder. Peanut flour comes in different varieties, including full-fat and defatted, with the latter having lower fat content. Peanut flour is available in most health food stores and online retailers.
IS PEANUT FLOUR KETO FRIENDLY?
Peanut flour or peanut powder is a great low carb flour to use in baking. A 1oz (28g) serving has just 5 grams net carbohydrates. It's lower in carbs than coconut flour too and has a great protein content.
We love making with it and have a few peanut flour recipes you might want to try. I recommend the muffins as they raise so high!
This keto pancake is a simple recipe, but let's face it, pancakes are pretty easy to make!
- Peanut butter powder - we used the Naked brand that is made with 100% peanuts and no added sugars. I ordered it from Amazon but I believe large stores may sell it too.
- Sweetener - for the sweetener we used allulose but any other sweetener such as monk fruit or erythritol can be used.
- Coconut milk - these pancakes can be make with canned coconut milk or carton almond flour. If the batter is too thick, add a dash more.
HOW TO MAKE PEANUT FLOUR PANCAKES
I have kept this pancake recipe simple for you to play around with. Go crazy and add chocolate chips, some spices or just have them plain and smothered with butter!!
We cooked them in our Dash mini griddle maker, to keep an even shape but they cook great in a pan too.
Mix the pancakes ingredients in a bowl.
Whisk until smooth.
Spoon into your pancake maker or in a pan.
Flip when you see bubbles.
These keto pancakes keep well in the fridge, if you have any leftovers or want to make them ahead. Store them in an airtight container and reheat in the pan or microwave.
Freeze them in an zip lock bag and they will last up to 3 months in the freezer. Defrost in the refrigerator and reheat, ready for breakfast or brunch.

These are so delicious! Even my kids love them without syrup! I topped mine with butter and sugar free whipped cream. I didn't have any coconut milk so I just used heavy cream instead.
Delighted you all enjoyed them!
Easy, fluffy, and delicious.
These are so good and super easy. Why did it take me so long to try them? I ate the entire batch yesterday. Today I added 2 tablespoons of cacao and had to add a little more coconut milk. Excellent! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
Glad you enjoyed them!
I made these and added Lilly’s chocolate chips (made with stevia) and used Lakanto maple syrup (made with monk fruit) on top. I halved the recipe and they were amazing! You could also top with a little peanut butter. Very good!
Searching on the web for a way to use peanut flour, your recipe came up. So grateful it did as these are super delicious! Light and fluffy! I made them this morning for breakfast, and they smelled heavenly on the griddle. Very delicate peanut butter flavor. Two were filling for me, so I have 2 leftover for breakfast tomorrow morning! I would love to share your recipe on the fb community for 'Original Atkins and LCHF-The Road to Success' with your credit of course. I know they would love it! I wonder why low carbers aren't using peanut flour more?
Thanks Dottie, that would be kind of you to share the recipe! I've got a few other peanut flour recipes too if you have a search on the site. Our favourite is the peanut flour roulade. I find that peanut flour makes a very light sponge. I guess that some low carbers keep away from it if they have nut allergies and the "Banters" don't eat peanuts. Glad you enjoyed the pancakes!
Is peanut flour the same as PB2, which is powdered peanuts ?
I believe that it is.
Tried the recipe using PB2, but the batter was very thin. I think that peanut flour may be different than PB 2 which is made from 100% pure peanuts. Anyway, I added 3 TBLS of almond flour and they came out perfect ! Very fluffy !
How many servings is this? I don't want To eat more than
I made 4 medium sized pancakes with this.
