Keto Waffles

I’ve tried a variety of recipes found online for keto waffles. My family loves homemade waffles, but I’ve been struggling to find a recipe that was keto friendly and easy, quick, and delicious. Finally, I combined all the successes and failures in my waffle-making experience, and came up with this no fail recipe that you can enjoy with your family and friends, on a keto lifestyle!

Ingredients:

1 c almond flour (plus 3-4 Tbsp to add at the end if your mix is too liquid)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 c whipping cream

1/3-1/2 c water

1/4 c butter (melted)

3 eggs

Keep 2-3 Tbsp psyllium husk flour (ground) aside to add at the end to help in liquid absorption

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients.

Preheat waffle iron. Grease with a basting brush dowsed in butter.

Whisk wet ingredients together and then combine them with dry ones. Mix well, until smooth. Incorporate the almond flour and psyllium husk flour as needed. If the mix is too liquid, it’ll be hard to get the look of waffles, and difficult to remove from the waffle iron.

The consistency of the waffles should be slightly thicker than pancake mix, probably closer to Greek yogurt, or melted ice-cream. Use a ladle to pour the mix onto the iron, close, and resist the urge to open too early in the cooking process, as it might divide the top from the bottom, potentially causing a mess. Let it sit for a minute or two longer than you would a regular waffle mix made with wheat flour. Use silicone thongs to remove the waffle from the iron.

I served mine with Greek yogurt, shredded coconut, and avocado slices. I’ve also had them with whipped cream, along with my black espresso. Hope you try it and enjoy it! If you do, please make sure to come back and comment below, on my FB page, Instagram or Pintrest.
