We are big pancake people over in the Ketconnect household. Nothing beats a hearty, fluffy, buttery pancake, and that includes these Pork Rind Pancakes! They are basically zero carb (except for the seasonings) and extremely filling. You can make them as a main dish, side dish or prep them for the week ahead.
Pancakes Make The Perfect Side Dish!
The first time Matt made these pork rind pancakes and I gave them a try I immediately thought of the green onion pancakes I used to get at Chinese restaurants. So, of course I highly recommend you try these with some additional spices and green onions in the batter to give them even more life! They can be served as your main dish or as as side dish, replacing the corn bread, toast or carb-y side you used to eat.
So, Are Pork Rinds Healthy For You?
Honestly, they are not something I would personally eat everyday. Once in a while for a movie snack or as something to munch on as I work at my computer they are fine, but there are much better sources of fat and protein! I would say making these pork rind pancakes would be great to pair alongside already nutritious meals, such as:
1. Low Carb Chili with Bacon
2. Easy Pulled Pork
3. Keto Chicken Tenders
Or, as seen in the picture below, you can just pile a stack of warm pancakes onto a plate and top them with butter to feed the animal inside! Just make sure these aren't the only foods you eat in the day.
Zero Carb Pork Rind Pancakes
Pancakes are always a quick meal to whip up for the entire family. Just pair it with some eggs and bacon and you've got yourself a complete and nutritious meal. These ones will surprise and satisfy even your non-keto family and leave you feeling good with zero carbs under your belt.
