Ingredients Needed for Vegan savory Keto Pancakes
Before you go to the grocery store, here are the ingredients you will need to make these dairy-free savory keto pancakes.
Almond Flour, tapioca flour & psyllium husk- Adds body to these pancakes and also makes them moist.
Turmeric powder- Gives these pancakes a beautifully light-yellow hue.
Red Onion & red bell pepper- Adds a mild flavor, beautiful color, and crunch.
Cauliflower- Adds body and texture.
Cilantro & ginger- These spices are a must and compliments all the ingredients in this recipe.
Jalapenos- For a little heat but skip it if you like.

How To Make Dairy-Free Keto Pancakes with No Eggs?
STEP 1: PREPARE THE VEGETABLES
Finely chop the red onion, cilantro leaves, red bell pepper, and jalapenos, if you are using them, and set them aside. Peel and grate the ginger and the cauliflower and set aside.
STEP 2: PREPARE THE BATTER & COOK
In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients, (vegetables, flours, spices, milk) and mix well ensuring everything is well combined.
Heat an ebelskiver pan or skillet to medium-high heat. I like using the ebelskiver pan because it makes these keto pancakes with no eggs look so adorable but most importantly cooks evenly.
Spoon the prepared batter using a mini muffin scoop onto the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve these dairy-free savory keto pancakes hot with a nice green salad.
What is an Ebelskiver pan?
Originating from Denmark, the ebelskiver pan is typically cast iron and heats evenly throughout. It is traditionally used to make round ball-shaped Danish pancakes. Nowadays this pan is used to make all types of cuisines over the world like eggs, Japanese Takoyaki, Danish pancakes stuffed with fruit or jam, and my fluffy keto pancakes!

Save prep time by chopping the vegetables in advance.
