Keto Pancakes for breakfast?

I receive interesting daily e-mails from Warrior Made   and Coach Tyler-- must have filled out a questionnaire some where, but most of the time I do make note of the exercises since he seems to do them in his living room and not the gym.  Today there was a recipe for Keto pancakes.  I know nothing about the Keto diet except it is low carb. (definition: “The “keto” in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it allows the body to produce small fuel molecules called “ketones”. This is an alternative fuel source for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply. Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar) . )

So I looked at the recipe see it has less protein than regular pancakes, so I don’t think I’ll use this one—made with cream cheese and almond flour).  I’ve been researching a higher protein diet for the elderly combined with resistance to improve joint and muscle health.  Not ready to write my conclusions yet, but the medical research show it is important.

Not that I frequently make pancakes, but they do sound good on these cold mornings—or evenings with creamed chicken, right?
