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.

  1. Delicious delicious delicious!

  2. 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!

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

    1. 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.

      1. One of my testers also did that and it was so easy.

  4. 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!

    1. That is lovely to hear Marla
