Low Carb Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Pancakes and cinnamon rolls have got to be two of the most delicious breakfast treats. That's why I turned them into one twice-as-amazing dish! Even better, these cinnamon roll pancakes are sugar free, low carb and keto.

For the Pancake Batter

For the Cinnamon Swirl

  • 1/4 cup / 60g butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp powdered sweetener or more, if you have a sweet tooth :)
  • 3 tbsp pancake batter (from above)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting


  1. Mix all ingredients for the pancake batter in a blender.

  2. Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour in some of the pancake batter and add the cinnamon swirl. Place a lid over the pan. Turn the pancake over once the top starts to firm up (about 2 minutes). Fry the side with the swirl only briefly (about 30 seconds). Proceed until all batter has been used up.

  3. To make the cream cheese frosting, mix together the cream cheese, sweetener and loosen with 1 tbsp of almond milk. Fill into a piping bag and decorate the pancake stack.

Recipe Notes

The pancakes should be smallish, ca 10-12 cm in diameter. About the right size to fit them in the toaster the next day should you be so lucky to have any leftovers.

The mix makes 8 pancakes. The nutrition is calculated per 2 pancakes = 1 portion. 2.7 net carbs per portion.
