Keto Peanut Pancakes

Keto Recipes > Breakfast

With national pancake day just having passed, I got the craving to make something special for myself. All of the ads that I kept seeing on TV for pancakes are definitely to blame, but I wanted something a little bit different. Apam Balik came to mind, which is a very common style of peanut pancakes that is seen in Malaysia and Singapore.

In Malaysia, we see these pancakes filled with creamed corn, sugar, butter, and a peanut filling. In Brunei, we see them filled with condensed milk, peanuts, and a raisin filling. In Indonesia, we commonly see them with cheese and chocolate as a filling.

We find these pancakes in many countries, and often the style changes with the country you’re in. Sometimes yeast is used to create a very fluffy, thick, and bubbly texture. Other times we see a mixture of baking powder and baking soda to create a thinner texture.

Usually this dish is cooked in a large bronze pan, giving the signature thin and crisp edges by spreading the pancake mixture on the side of the pan. The variations on this pancake dish are staggering, but I wanted to go for something that was simple and easy enough to make at home. We use a keto-fied condensed milk and peanut filling – one of my personal favorite versions.
