Keto Scallion Pancakes – healthy, low carb, full of flavor

It took me almost 4 weeks to develop a recipe for Keto Scallion Pancakes. Originally I was working on a prototype that used cassava flour and arrowroot starch. Nate and I had fun with the starchy version but after a few weeks of trial and error and dozens of doughs sitting in my freezer, both of us got tired of eating them, given that we both prefer fewer carbs.

Treat them gently

Remember they aren’t real dough so treat these pancakes gently when pan-frying. It takes a bit practice (and a few fun tricks) to flip them but I have faith in you that you can absolutely do this !

Makes 8 slices of pancakes in a 9-inch skillet
Print Recipe Pin Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cauliflower rice chop/grind to couscous size
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • ¼ tsp coarse salt
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos
  • Chopped scallions, as much as you like
  • Dash of onion powder and white pepper, (white pepper optional)

I Heart Umami Scallion Pancakes Sauce:

Instructions

  • In a 4-cup (small) food processor finely chop 2 cups cauliflower rice to couscous size. Microwave for 1 and half minutes until the cauliflower couscous are slightly softer. Set aside to cool then squeeze out the liquid content as much as you can with a cheesecloth or clean kitchen towel.

  • Combine the rest of ingredients. Mix well and set the mixture aside for 5-10 minutes. In the meantime preheat a cast iron skillet (or any skillet you have that won’t stick) over low heat.

  • When the skillet is well-heated, add 1 tbsp avocado oil (for a 9-inch cast iron skillet) and swirl the oil around to grease the skillet evenly, pour the mixture in and quickly and gently spread the mixture evenly around the skillet. Pan fry over low heat for about 5 minutes or until the edge is in light golden brown. Make sure it cooks all sides. Pay attention to the stovetop temperature.

  • Because the pancake is gluten-free, it’s a little more fragile than a conventional pancake, so it’s helpful if you flip it as follows: when you’re ready to flip, place a flat plate upside-down over the pan, and invert so the pancake falls out, cooked-side-up, on the plate. Then, put the pan back on the burner, and simply let the pancake slide laterally back into the pan. Because the raw side is against the plate, the pancake might leave residue as it slides down. This is normal!
  • Cook the flip side for about 3 minutes until golden brown. Gently shake the skillet while cooking to keep the flip side from sticking. Slide the pancake out and cool over a wire rack so that the bottom won’t get soggy. Slice to wedges and serve in room temperature with my Scallion Pancakes Sauce.

Notes

Pay close attention to the stovetop temperature as the pancake could get either burnt easily or under cooked. A smaller skillet will be easier to flip the pancake. (Mine is a 9-inch cast iron skillet).
