I found my waffle maker at the back of the cupboard a few weeks ago and was just about to throw it out when I looked at the old recipe I used to make all the time and decided to adapt the recipe we once loved, but remove the flour and the sugar. Well my waffle maker lived to see another day and my children say they like these keto waffles better than the high carb version we used to eat.
Each waffle is not much more than an egg, coconut flour and some butter (plus a few other ingredients to make them rise and tasty).
Keto Waffles – no sugars, no grains
My old recipe that arrived with the waffle maker, requires 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of sugar. I can’t believe I used to make them on a regular basis (and the maple syrup or golden syrup that was added on top).
But most high carb recipes can be adapted if you know how. I replaced the wheat flour for coconut flour, and replaced the sugar with stevia and plenty of vanilla.
What resulted was the most amazing, light, fluffy, tasty keto waffles you can imagine. I have tried many low carb and grain free pancake recipes over the years, and I can hand on heart say these keto waffles are the best.
What’s even better, is that there are no complicated ingredients, no added sugars, it’s grain free, there’s no protein powders, and uses ingredients we will all have in our cupboards. So give these a go and see what you think.
They can even be frozen in between sheets of baking paper/parchment, in an airtight container.
Note On Nuts :: “The FDA lists coconut as a tree nut but in fact, coconut is a seed of a drupaceous fruit. Most people allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut. Coconut allergy is reasonably rare. If you are allergic to tree nuts, talk to your allergist before adding coconut to or eliminating coconut from your diet.”
These keto waffles are so versatile. These waffles can be made in the waffle maker, or if you don’t have one, can be cooked in the frying pan like a pancake.
Add some cinnamon or ginger if you like different spices. Make an extra batch and use the keto waffles cold as a ‘sandwich’.
Cut each waffle in half, spread each half with cream cheese and add some berries inside as the filling. Or how about cutting them into individual pieces, toast them and use with a low carb ice cream.
UPDATE :: I just have to share with you all the best comment I received today for these keto waffles. I will now be addressed forever more as the Keto Goddess please 😉
I have been keto for three years now. Every darn time I see a new low carb/keto waffle recipe on Pinterest, I get all excited, dust off the waffle iron, throw some bacon in the oven, and about a half hour later the air is blue with expletives as I curse the liar who swore their recipe was just like the “real” waffles of my past. Up until now they have all been crap. Today was different. Big time different. Life altering different. Angels singing in my mouth different. Even my husband, who is unimpressed with all things Keto, couldn’t stop saying Wow… WOW…. These are legal???
Libby, you have just won the “Best Keto Waffle In The Entire World” award, which is apparently just my undying gratitude. You have changed my life for real, because now I can be excited about weekend breakfasts again. You are a Keto Goddess and I bow to you.
