Savory Pancakes with Fennel and Feta

posted in: Recipes

Greek-inspired savory pancakes are light and fluffy – a great bread replacement to add on the side of a healthy protein source. Fennel and feta are combined to flavor this grain-free, gluten free, ketogenic recipe.

The base of the batter is coconut flour, I used our Coconut Flour Pancake recipe and infused it with a handful of savory herbs and cheese. Yum!

Simple Savory Pancakes

I like these savory pancakes better than sweet ones!

Mama's Best Meatballs stuffed with cheese

I served these aside a variation on Mama’s Best Meatballs (from The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook). These meatballs had a cheesy surprise inside. They were stuffed with chunks of mozzarella! A serving of pancakes with butter melted on top and about 1/4 pound of beef made a great lunch.

These scrumptious little pancakes are based on the original flavor combinations of a Greek dish called “Marathopita” which is a a spinach and fennel pie. I adapted the idea to be gluten-free and ketogenic. These pancakes are a great bread replacement to add on the side of a healthy protein source. They come out like an excellent hybrid of pancake and omelette. Nutritious and filling!
