As I discovered earlier, raspberries go great with vanilla, while fresh figs are amazing with cinnamon. Don't be afraid to include figs in your diet - fresh figs are not as high in carbs as dried figs. They are rich in fiber and a good source of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, beta carotene and calcium. A 100 grams of baby figs have 9.5 grams of Net Carbs which is similar to the amount of net carbs in berries.

Note that this recipe is ideal as a pre/post-workout meal, as it's slightly higher in net carbs or as part of Targeted Ketogenic Diet. If you want to avoid eating too many carbs, avoid any fruit added. You can also use peanut or almond butter )paleo-friendly) instead of the yogurt. The pancake base itself only has about 5 g of NET carbs per serving.

Ingredients (per serving)



  • 1/2 cup (125g / 4.4 oz) plain organic yogurt (I used 5% fat) or coconut cream
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 fresh baby figs (40g / 1.4 oz) or 1 large fig

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them well with a whisk or fork.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix coconut flour, desiccated coconut, almond flour, cinnamon and baking soda. Add it to the bowl with eggs and spoon in the coconut milk. Mix well.

  3. Add the sweetener. Liquid Stevia extract is better than powdered Stevia and doesn't leave a bitter aftertaste if used in moderation. Just be careful, it is still many times sweeter than sugar and you should not use more than a few drops. If you don't like Stevia, use non-GMO Erythritol or "Just Like Sugar" (natural sweetener that comes from chicory root).

  4. In a small bowl, mix the yogurt with cinnamon. Wash the fresh figs and place them on a paper towel.

  5. Prepare the pan by greasing it with coconut oil and set the cooker on low heat. Spoon a tablespoon of the batter on the pan creating small pancakes and cook briefly. When bubbles start to appear on the top of the pancake, flip on the other side and cook for another minute.

  6. When done, place on a serving plate by creating two layers of pancakes and yogurt. Top each of them with freshly cut baby figs, sprinkle with cinnamon and ENJOY!

  1. Oils that have high smoke points are suitable for cooking (avocado oil, coconut oil, macadamia oil, red palm oil, lard, etc.)

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.
