Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake Pancakes are light and airy. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice and cloves are a great start to the fall festivities.
I think this is my favorite “bready” type of low carb and keto recipe so far.
Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice and cloves are a great start to the fall festivities.

How to Make Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake Pancakes.
Blend ingredients using an Instant Pot Ace 60 Blender, VitaMix or other Blender.
Flavor the batter.
Pour into a hot cast iron skillet or griddle.
Simple, simple, simple.
I really like this new Instant Pot Ace 60 Blender. The interface is beautiful and resembles the fabulous Instant Pot Multicooker.
There are presents for Ice Cream, Soup, Crushed Ice, Smoothie, Puree, Nut Milks, Soy and Rice Milks and of course, manual options.
The manual options are for things like shredding coleslaw, mixing up batters and chopping vegetables.
This Instant Pot Ace 60 Blender does a nice job of blending up the ingredients.
Grab a spatula and scrape down the sides, if needed.
Tips and Tricks
- Heat up the cast iron skillet as you are preparing the batter.
- A tiny amount of butter is enough to grease the skillet or griddle.
- If the skillet is not hot enough, the batter will spread too thin.
- Pour quickly and carefully in order to get a perfect size pancake.
- The batter will stop spreading at the same time you stop pouring, if the skillet is at the optimal temperature.
- Flip pancakes, when bubbles start to form.
For using this batter to make dessert crepes, pour the batter into the middle of the skillet or griddle quickly, so that it will spread out fast.

Wouldn’t the cream cheese and eggs result in some protein ?
Bridget Booth says
Just made these on my grandmothers old griddle. Might be close to 100 years old. I hade stove dial on a 4. Which isn’t more than a medium hot setting. I think though because of butter the pancakes were darker than yours. I may try 3.5 setting next time.
I love pumpkin and loved these . Will definitely make again. Was skeptical since no flour used but they were great. Served with butter and Allulose maple syrup since I’m doing Keto.

I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe. Thank you. Jill
Please disregard my last comment. As soon as I scrolled up I found what I was looking for. So sorry about that. However, if I want to make them a tad bit thicker, should I add almond or coconut flour or corn starch? What would you recommend?
Thanks sooo much. I can not wait to try these.
Hey there, do you list exact measurements for the ingredients? Or am I missing it?
How can they be 0 carbs? That’s not correct surely.
This is probably a very silly question, but the cream cheese should be softened, right??
Lynn Heemstra says
Do you think I could make these ahead of time to take camping?
Jill Selkowitz says
I don’t see why not. Jill
Love these. Made them for breakfast on Sunday for the following week.
I could smell the pumpkins when I was cooking them but couldn’t really taste it. They are very thin and you definitely read the directions and make sure your griddle is HOT! As in smoking hot or else these will completely fall apart and be impossible to turn. Also don’t be afraid to flip you just gotta go for it!
This is my second week on keto and I just tried this recipe it’s excellent reminded me of a crepe and I just love crepes. I did not see though how many servings for the full recipe?
Adele Aiken says
16 pancakes – each pancake is a serving so16 servings
Are the macros for 1 pancake?
This pumpkin pancakes recipe is excellent! Very tasty. They are cute and thin…just what I am striving to be. Next time I make them I am going to try whipping the egg whites and folding them into the batter to see how they come out. Thank you for sharing this recipe
That sounds like a nice idea. They will be fluffier. So glad you enjoy them. Jill
Is that homemade vanilla extract I see in your picture? Do you have a recipe for that?
Im planning on making the pancakes today.
Just made these, and it was like eating a desert! A little maple syrup, and WOW! They are so easy, although I need to be a little more organized next time cause they cook so fast! I have a feeling that this is going to become my “go to” pancake! I’m glad I found you, thanks so much Jill!
Thank you so much, Joan. I am thrilled you enjoyed the pancakes so much. Jill
These are pretty thin, but have great flavor, and I felt like I was eating regular pancakes! Love them!
