Milk Kefir Pancake (Low Carb)

By 11:24:00 , , , , , , , ,

I have been culturing Milk Kefir at home and whenever I have extra milk kefir sitting in the fridge I will use it to make these fluffy and soft Milk Kefir Pancakes.

What is milk kefir?
Milk kefir  is a probiotic beverage made with milk kefir grains, it is a fermented dairy product similar in many ways to yogurt and buttermilk.
Milk kefir is tangy, about as thick and creamy as smoothie and loaded with good probiotics. Think of milk kefir as drinkable, pourable yogurt.
This pancake recipe uses milk kefir (don't fret - you can substitute with Greek yogurt), and they are suitable for keto and LCHF diet! Yay!

Milk Kefir Pancake (Low Carb)

2 Large Eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp Coconut Flour

  1. Wonderful recipe, I love pancakes for breakfast. And these ones are very fluffy and taste really unusual. It is not easy to find kefir in Toronto, but it worth it. Click for more information when I was a student I didn't have much time for breakfast, now cooking really is my passion.

  2. These dairy pancakes remind me of my school days.
    I really loved my school breakfasts. School breakfasts are free for all students, you need to pay for meals (the cost of one meal is $ 2.70), for certain categories of children - for free. Applications for free meals are served at the beginning of the school year. School meals are paid online or by checkbook in advance. Neither the children nor the employees of the school cafeteria deal with cash.
    What is on the school tray during breakfast? A package of milk (200g), fruit (apple or banana) (fruits are very useful for students, because they help students clear their minds and start thinking creatively, those children who eat fruits can easily write essays on their own, and not with the help of the cheapest essay writing service Buypapercheap, which is the best essay writing service, also students who eat fruit can not only write an essay on their own, but also solve any technical problem on their own), a roll or bag of cereal. Not that it’s very tasty, but enough to gain strength before a working day. What's for lunch? Hamburger / pizza / piece of chicken / salad (there is always a choice of two dishes), 3 types of vegetables to choose from, juice. Soup - alas! - does not happen.
    Some took something from home for an extra snack. I took my mother’s pancakes to eat after school breakfast during the working day.

  3. Hey. The great recipe. Thank you very much for the recipe. I will definitely try to bake this next weekend.
