These Carbquik pancakes give Bisquick a run for its money. And each low carb pancake has just 2g net carbs.
I have a confession to make. A while back, I loudly proclaimed that I had the World's Greatest Waffle and Pancake recipe. But I now realize that I might have spoken too soon. So I would like to amend my claim and say that it was the World's Greatest Almond Flour Waffle and Pancake recipe.
That was before I learned about the wonders of Carbquik pancakes so... apologies.
💬 Low Carb Dieters Often Ask
It's a baking mix that is a low carb take on Bisquick. It's made from enzyme enriched wheat, vital wheat gluten, and soy flour and has just 2g net carbs per ⅓ cup serving. The net carb count is so low because of the high fiber content in Carbquik. It actually has 16g of carbohydrates, but it also has 14g of fiber to cancel it out.
It doesn't taste just like Bisquick, so it takes a little getting used to. The texture is grainier and the flavor of the soy flour does come through. But, with a little syrup and butter, you won't know the difference.
It's Keto adjacent, let's put it like that. Because Carbquik contains wheat, you can't eat it if you are doing a strict Keto diet. There is a chance that it could raise your blood sugar. But it has half the carbs that almond flour has, so many Keto dieters swear by it.
🥞 How to make pancakes with Carbquik
The basic recipe for Carbquik pancakes is right on the box, so we don't need to talk much about that. You just mix together 1 cup of the baking mix, an egg, ⅛ cup heavy whipping cream, 1 cup water, and 1 melted stick of butter and fry it up in a pan. My recipe is just as easy but adds a few more ingredients for a little extra flavor and protein.
- Ricotta Cheese
- Unsweetened Almond Milk
- Carbquik Baking Mix
- Blueberries (optional)
- Add eggs, ricotta cheese, almond milk, and baking mix to a blender and blend until combined. Scrape down the sides to get any pockets of baking mix and blend again.
- Heat butter in a large skillet over Medium-High heat. Pour the batter onto the skillet in ¼ cup measurements.
- Place blueberries evenly over the batter. Cook until bubbles form in the batter, 1-2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until browned, 1-2 minutes more. You should have 8 pancakes.
- Serve topped with butter and sugar-free pancake syrup.

🍯 Sugar-free syrup
Now it is easy to spend money on specialty sugar-free syrup. No one knows this better than me. But you can find perfectly decent sugar-free pancake syrup right in the pancake aisle of the grocery store. You can even buy it in generic.
And that's all she wrote. 👩🍳
In less than 15 minutes, you can whip up a batch of Carbquik Pancakes for yourself. I hope you use my recipe for Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes, but I won't be offended if you just use the recipe from the box.
Either way, you are in for a treat. 😊Print
