Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

I love Okonomiyaki! Keto Okonomiyaki even more!

Seriously whether you do a vegetarian one, or one with thinly slinky sliced pork belly, bacon, whatever, it just tastes totally yum.

This recipe is easily made vegetarian, by leaving out your bacon lardons, and it still tastes amaze-balls.

Making it LCHF was easy, and seeing I have no bakers flour, as I am de-carbing my pantry, it was a no brainer.

If you are not worried about gluten you can use plain flour, or there is even special okonomiyaki flour to use.

Easily made for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Okonomiyaki, will please at any time of the day.

  • 250 g green cabbage
  • 2 spring onion sliced thinly
  • 1 egg
  • 70 g cream cheese
  • 80 g almond flour
  • 1 tbsp Dashi powder
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husks
  • 100 g bacon lardons cooked until crispy
  • 80 g grated cheese or haloumi this is optional if you want to add more fat, and cheesey goodness
  • butter or coconut oil to fry

To serve


  • Place your cabbage into Thermocooker
  • Chop 3 seconds / speed 4
  • Scrap sides of bowl
  • Add rest of Pancake ingredients, except bacon
  • Mix 10 seconds / reverse / speed 4
  • Scrape into a medium glass bowl, and fold through bacon
  • Your mix should not be wet, but should come together, if it needs more flour, or egg, add this now, as the almond flour is always different in its absorbency
  • Fry in preheated fry pan in oil or butter, in large patties, turning after a few minutes, and cooking until golden.
  • Serve drizzled with your mayo, and okonomi sauce

    Just had a go at making this. Very tasty! Didn’t make the sauce as I hadn’t the ingredients but will do. I made the mixture into six pancakes. Three would be huge ones!
    I’m planning on taking them tomorrow for my sis in law and I as we go on a road trip. We’ll keep to the woe!

    Can you provide instructions for someone who doesn’t have a Thermocooker (ME!!) please?

      I would chop cabbage by hand or in a food processor then add the dry ingredients and mix together

    • Sheralee says:

      Just watched a video where someone cooked it in a belgian waffle iron. Medium high heat, put whole bacon slices into waffle iron, cook for about 5 minutes while mixing batter. Take bacon off, sprinkle the cabbage and scallions, cook for about 30 sec with lid open, then pour in batter, let cook open until starting to set, then gently close lid without locking it or pushing down too hard. Cook about a minute, then remove it and sprinkle the chopped bacon etc.

    This was my first meal plan recipe and it was absolutely delicious, despite me making the batter too thick and overdoing the frying. I subbed soy sauce for Dashi powder and added Chili Garlic sauce. Fantastic start!

  • Susan O says:

    Hello Megan, I know nothing about Thermomixers. Does it chop and cook the Cabbage? Obviously that is an important bit of information for someone who doesn’t have a thermomix. ie is the cabbage cooked pior to putting in to the mixture. Thanks, Susie O
