How to Make Waffles Keto-Friendly
Most of the waffles you’ll meet in this world aren’t keto friendly. In fact, eating them will probably send your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride.
Fortunately, there is a way to have your waffles and your keto lifestyle too. The main trick is to replace the wheelbarrow of all-purpose flour that is normally used to make waffles with a lower dose of almond flour.
This recipe helps with the portion control part of healthy eating by only yielding two servings. Obviously, if you’re cooking for your family you can double or triple up to make sure everyone gets their share.
Another concerning ingredient in your average waffle is sugar. I used vanilla extract and just a tablespoon of erythritol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, to add a touch of sweetness to this keto almond flour waffles recipe.
Topping Them Off
Just because these waffles are keto-friendly doesn’t mean you should go wild with your toppings. You can’t dump high-fructose corn syrup or half a can of whipped cream over your breakfast without consequences.
There are healthier options on the table. Fresh berries are a sweet treat that most people enjoy as a topping for waffles.
Others enjoy waffles with a bit of ghee. This is extra tasty if you can spread it on while the waffles are still warm.
You could also top these with almond butter, which is nice and filling to tide you over until your next meal.
If you are making naughty waffles for guests or the kids, then these cinnamon roll waffles are sure to go down a treat. If you love cinnamon, adapt my keto waffle recipe to suit your palate.
