This is a remake of my low-carb strawberry ricotta pancakes, a recipe I created shortly after I started this website. 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. Instead of making them on a pan, I baked these beauties in the oven and it was just what I was hoping for! Delicious, fluffy pancakes that are full of flavour and sweetness from baked strawberries. These are really tasty!

I made them with strawberries but these fluffy low-carb pancakes work just as well with blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. Enjoy!

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.

I made them in a pan and they were delicious! Thank you for the nice recipe Martina!


Thank you Irene!


These look like soft cookies.. Can they be made into cookies??


That's an interesting thought! These are really soft, too soft for a cookie but a few tweaks may help. I've made cream cheese cookies before and they were delicious. Maybe some extra almond flour would help?


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! 😊
