Additional Notes

I’ve tried various keto pancake recipes and I haven’t been impressed, coconut flour and almond flour have very distinct flavours and they also tend to be too dry. Pure unflavoured protein powder turns out to be a perfect flour substitute for keto and carnivore recipes. I find the milk adds enough sweetness that I don’t need to add sweeteners, but it all depends on your taste buds. I am on the carnivore diet now, but I do still make this recipe on occasion as a treat, it’s not a bad birthday cake.
