***I no longer use xylitol or Splenda. Please keep in mind xylitol is poisonous to dogs. I would suggest you use a natural sweetener like raw honey.
I guess I really like breakfast:DI noticed I have a lot of breakfast posts.I still have half of a jicama in my fridge from when I made the “apple” fries. That was 2 weeks ago.This vegetable just doesn’t go bad!Usually when I make something that only uses a little bit of apple I just use an apple I don’t search for alternatives.Since I still had a half of a jicama to use up I tried it with this recipe.The jicama doesn’t get as soft as apples would.It gives the recipe an apple taste but not a strong apple flavour.  Overall I think it really is a great alternative to apples.  I also used the jicama as part of an “apple” stuffing for pork tenderloin and I still have a lot of jicama left over to eat!
I have been wondering how to use it in a savory dish.Even when I sautéed it for this recipe with no flavour added it still tasted sweet.Kent Altena has a YouTube video for scalloped potatoes using jicama.I might try that out.
Do you have a savory recipe using jicama?

Keto Apple Cinnamon Pancake Recipe

·         1/8 cup of diced jicama
·         ½ tbsp of xylitol
·         ½ tsp of ground cinnamon
·         ¼ cup of full fat coconut milk (or almond milk, heavy cream etc)
·         1 egg
·         ½ tsp of baking powder (make sure it is gluten free if you are sensitive to gluten, sometimes the starch in baking powder is made from wheat)
·         2 tbsp of ground flaxseed
1.    Sauté the jicama in a frying pan.
2.    While the jicama is softening, mix xylitol, cinnamon, coconut milk, and egg in a mixing bowl.
3.    Add baking powder and ground flax seed.
4.    Let the mixture sit for a few minutes.It will thicken a little.
5.    When the jicama is softened – Note – it doesn’t soften that much.You can either add the jicama to the mixture or pour pancake portions of the mixture over the jicama.
6.    For a small pancake I used a tablespoon size measuring spoon.
7.    Cook on low to medium heat and flip when the bottom is cooked.
*I made 5 small pancakes from this recipe.You can make a huge batch and freeze the pancakes.Then when you are in a rush just put the frozen pancake in the toaster and voila a quick breakfast/snack.


I ate the pancakes plain but you could serve with natural sugar free peanut butter.

    1. Hi Alaiyo! Flax seed is very high in fiber you might want to switch the flax seed for almond flour for a child. Or maybe do hlaf flax seed half almond flour. It is still low carb but it won't shock his body. Most people when they start eating flax seed for the first time need to eat it in small quantities until they are use to that amount of fiber. It's like eating bran for the first time.

  2. Honestly, I've not heard of jicama before! I might have to do some research and find out where I can get hold of some near me. These pancakes look delicious and I can't wait to give them a try. I'm a big fan of flax seed – got used to using it as a substitute when doing a fitness bootcamp that required clean eating throughout. It's a great ingredient!


    1. Hi Li Sherry! I never heard of Jicama until I started eating low carb. It has a wonderful apple flavour. I love flax seed! I put in most of my baked goodies.
