Low carb waffles can be just as good or better than wheat flour ones. These delicious almond flour waffles can be made ahead and frozen for quick and easy breakfast.
I also have a coconut flour waffles recipe if you don’t have almond flour. But you do need more eggs when using coconut flour.
Sometimes modifying a standard recipe works out well without having to make too many other changes. And I didn’t change much to create these almond flour waffles from a regular cookbook recipe.
However, I end up increasing the number of eggs slightly when I used ground almonds instead of regular flour. I also found that adding a little xanthan gum adds a little elasticity like gluten.
But the xanthan gum isn’t necessary. It just gives these low carb waffles a texture that’s more like regular wheat flour ones with gluten.
I’ve spent a long while trying to figure out a noncream cheese based pancake/waffle mix and after enough experimentation, I believe I’ve figured it out! I’ve almost literally just copied a normal flour waffle recipe and translated to Keto friendly, and adjusted portions so it cooks right.
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Oil or cooking spray
- 1 tbsp sweetener of your choice (I use a stevia syrup)
- 1tsp cinnamon
- All you need to do is put the ingredients in a bowl, beat/whip until creamy, and pour into your waffle maker. Following the same recipe also makes tasty pancakes. Despite the usage of almond, I couldn’t taste it.
- These portions create 6-8 pancakes or 1-6 inch waffle.
- Can’t wait to see what else I can add in to make a variant of it.
