I posted the recipe for Strawberry Ricotta Pancakes almost a year ago, shortly after I created this website. I have to admit I still consider myself quite new to the whole blogosphere and know there is always room for improvement. There are always recipes I want to fine-tune and find a better balance.

I knew this recipe had some flaws and always wanted to go back and try using other ingredients and cooking methods. My original pancakes were too fragile and difficult to handle. Initially, I thought that a slight change in ingredients would be enough, but soon I realised I needed to use a different cooking method.

I used organic pastured eggs and the egg yolks were really vibrant! As with all low-carb "sweets", these pancakes are low in carbs but you should always treat them as occasional rewards.

Note: These pancakes are great with strawberries but also work with blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.

  4. Transfer the egg whites into the bowl with the egg yolk mixture and very gently fold in. Using a sieve, slowly add the coconut flour.
    Note: After adding coconut flour, be careful not to deflate the mixture completely. Baked Low-Carb Strawberry & Ricotta Pancakes
  5. Place the sliced strawberries onto a baking dish lined with parchment paper and greased with coconut oil.
    Note: If you only have frozen strawberries, they have to be thawed and the excess juices removed. Baked Low-Carb Strawberry & Ricotta Pancakes

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi Martina, I made these this morning in attempt to find a substitute for a cheese blintz. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical but OMG this recipe is  brilliant! I didn't have any fresh strawberries so I used a dab of strawberry rhubarb chai jam (also your recipe). Thank you.


Thank you!! I'm glad you liked it! 😊


Hi Martina,
I am going to try some of recipes for fat bombs. What is equivalent of cream of tartar in Czech/Slovakia?


Hi Linda, this is how I found it: "vinný kámen, kyselý vinan draselný" - it's a byproduct of winemaking used for stabilising and giving volume to beaten egg whites and is also used together with baking soda to create gluten-free baking powder. You can also use gluten-free baking powder instead of cream of tartar and baking soda. Hope this helps 😊


I made these today me and boyfriend loved them they are nice and fluffy and not overly sweet they make a great light dessert 😊 ill be making them again


Thank you Karen, that's great to hear! The original recipe, which I posted about a year ago, needed some serious adjustments. I love these pancakes and actually don't put any stevia as I'm used to the mild taste 😊


The strawberries give it so much flavour when baked and it's still so low in carbs. Ingenious idea. Thanks 😊


Thank you Sam!


These are so good!! I added some strawberry whey protein and had them after my workout. Fluffy and quick. Thank you 😊


Thank you Liz!


This recipe is such an improvement compared to the original one! Well done! Initially, I thought the pancakes were really bright. I used pastured eggs like you and this was the colour I got, too :-D


Thank you Debbie, it was needed! 😊
