Low Carb Apple Pie Pancakes & Muffins


Keto SnacksI mentioned we’ve been experimenting with low carb baking, and trying new recipes for low carb waffles & muffins.

Last Tuesday we used the “perfected recipe” to make low carb Apple Pie Pancakes and also Apple Pie Walnut Muffins – from the same batter. 🙂

They are delicious!!

I’ll share the recipe with you below, along with my meals and MyFitnesspal diary for that day too.

If you missed it, my last food diary had two easy & delicious home-cooked low carb dinners. On this day though, it was pancakes for dinner (lol)…

My Low Carb Meals on Tuesday

I had to grab something easy & eat at my desk Tuesday morning, so I grabbed the coconut cakes that came in The Keto Box a few weeks ago. That plus some cream cheese and pecans…

Low Carb Foods

This “5 Simple Ingredients” version of Philadelphia Cream Cheese is MUCH lower in carbs than the original. It’s less than 1 carb per ounce (instead of 2 carbs per ounce)!

I love the Smart Cakes, and coconut is my favorite of all their flavors!

They are soft, fluffy, and ZERO net carbs. 🙂

Low Carb Breakfast Ideas - Coconut SmartCakes are Gluten Free and Zero Net Carbs, great with Cream Cheese and Pecans!

Tip: If you put cream cheese in the microwave for a few seconds, it fluffs up real pretty!;)

My lunch was a simple plate of cheesy eggs…

Next up: Low Carb Muffins & Pancakes!

They put a fun recipe insert in every Keto Krate box each month, so that’s where this recipe idea started.

Here’s the original recipe which calls for Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Almond Butter (which is amazingly delicious!!) to make waffles:

Aaron and I have been playing with this recipe A LOT lately. 🙂

We’ve experimented with it and discovered the recipe above can be used with ANY nut butter, and can be used to make pancakes & muffins just as well as it makes waffles!

For this experiment, we used Apple Pie Almond & Cashew Nut Butter – also from Legendary Foods.

And let me just say… you could scrap the whole recipe and just eat this stuff straight out of the jar! 🙂 It’s SO GOOD.

Low Carb Apple Pie Pancakes - Recipe

The “Low Carb Apple Pie Pancakes” came out golden brown but light & fluffy, and absolutely delicious!

We made SIX pretty good sized pancakes, and they came out to 4 net carbs each (per pancake) using the recipe above.

You’ll want to use the MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator based on the size & number of pancakes/muffins you make, and the brands & ingredients you use – so you can log them properly.

Next we added walnuts to the same recipe, using the Apple Pie Almond & Cashew Nut Butter again to create…

Both the pancakes and the muffins are logged in my MyfitnessPal Diary below, and you can see they have very good LCHF Macros.

The muffins came out to 3 net carbs each (with a batch of 10 muffins) which included about 3/4 cup of walnut pieces added to the original waffle recipe above.

The muffins were PERFECT.

This was not our first batch of “Nut Butter Muffins” so the recipe is definitely a winner! 🙂

Perfect Low Carb Muffins Recipe

The Legendary Foods Nut Butters are ideal for low carb pancakes, waffles & muffins because they offer a variety of flavors.

The Pecan Pie Almond Butter has been our TOP favorite so far, but Apple Pie and Blueberry Cinnamon Bun pull very close seconds. 😉

Feel free to test the recipe with your favorite nut butter – even plain almond butter, then add blueberries or walnuts or whatever you prefer.

We’ve REALLY enjoyed this recipe!!

That’s one of the things I love about getting the Keto Krate box every month. In addition to the fun recipes they always include, you get to try products you may never have found (or bought) otherwise.;)

Legendary Foods makes a variety of AMAZING nut butters in different flavors…

In my next food diary I’ll share a FUN lunch out with Angela who has lost 40 pounds in the last year eating low carb. I didn’t even recognize her when we met for lunch! 🙂

I’ll show you what we both ordered too, in case you find yourself out to eat and needing low carb restaurant ideas

How are things going on your end?

I would love to hear from you. Let me know if you have any questions, or if you plan to try this recipe – and what modifications you’ll make to it!:)

    I’m new to keto although I have done Atkins which stressed most of your carbs should come from complex carbs – green veggies, salads, etc. Your sample menu doesn’t seem very nutritious?
