Hankering for Pancakes
One thing I am learning is that the life of a “Ketonian” is a life filled with luscious foods, and there is no need to go without.
I had made and enjoyed the Cream Cheese Pancake recipe, that I shared in my blog post titled “So What Do We Eat on Keto WOL?” But they still lacked the consistency of real pancakes. I found several other keto/low carb pancake recipes, most of which called for almond flour, that wouldn’t work for me having a tree nut allergy. The thought of converting one of them using coconut flour just seemed overwhelming to me so I never tried doing so – maybe a little laziness on my part.
Then One Fine Day…
I saw a post on Dr. Ken Berry’s Patreon Group. A gal had made Neisha Berry’s Pancake Recipe using Pork Panko (panko made out of pork rinds – ergo the twist), she said:
Y’all! Tonight we made Neisha Maria Salas-Berry’s pancakes and substituted the almond flour with pork panko. Did a 1-1 substitution, but upped the sweetener from 1 tbsp to 1 1/2 tbsp.
They were Amazing!!!
Below and to the left (or below depending on your device) is an image that another person posted in response to the original posting. So I thought, I am going to give them a try using Pork Panko.
My First Attempt
My post photo is my first attempt in making these wonderful pancakes. As you can see there is a side of bacon. As a side note, the fragrance of bacon should be a perfume.
Silly me the first time I made them, I totally missed the 2 oz of heavy whipping cream but they still turned out fantastic. So for clarity here is the recipe:
I whipped the softened cream cheese, added the eggs and beat them together. Then I added the panko, baking powder, Swerve, heavy whipping cream, and salt and blended well. I used a tiny bit of bacon grease in my pan to cook the pancakes.
These pancakes are definitely easy to make and taste great. You might be thinking panko made from pork rinds “Eeew, Pork rinds are all you are going to taste!” Well, I can tell you-you don’t taste the pork rinds at all. These pancakes are super filling and I would say they can be considered carnivore since there is no type of flour in them.
This is another version of Neisha Loves It – Keto Pancake recipe found on Pinterest. This version calls for 3 eggs but has no heavy whipping cream in it. You should be able to substitute pork panko for the almond flour as well.

I hope you will give this recipe a try, whether you use pork panko or almond flour.
