We’ve been following a keto world for a few years now, and what we’ve found out is that people usually have difficulties with keto breakfast ideas. Especially individuals who are going through the transition phase from “regular carb eating regime.” What can you have for breakfast when bread and cereals are not allowed?
There are plenty of keto breakfast recipe ideas, from keto bread, keto pancakes, or just a plain omelet. But one option sounds ideal in this case. Keto waffles.
No sugars, no grains
In this post, we want to share with you our recipe for Keto waffles made with almond flour.
The recipe is quite simple to follow, and you will have a delicious breakfast in no time. The best thing is that you can make these keto waffles in advance and store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you decide to do so, you just have to toast the waffles in the morning with a little butter and cheese, and that’s it.
For waffles to become fluffy, it is essential to choose the ingredients well; the perfect texture is achieved when using almond flour, not almond meal!
Both almond flour and almond meal are made with ground almonds, but the almond meal keeps the skin of almonds, which makes it in a darker color and thicker consistency. If you choose an almond meal, the waffles will be dark and compact.
When it comes to baking powder, we suggest the following rule: For every cup and a half of almond flour, you must add a teaspoon of baking powder. This is enough for you to get fluffy waffles. If you want featherlike waffles, you can beat the egg whites and incorporate them into the mixture at the end of the preparation, and the waffles will be very soft.
We used a silicon mold in this recipe. A waffle machine works as well or even better.
How to make keto waffles with almond flour
Melt butter in the microwave. Mix all the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl: milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Beat very well until fully integrated consistency. Add sweetener and make sure there are no lumps.
Using another bowl, sift almond flour with baking powder and grated lemon rind. Add this mixture to the “wet mixture,” little by a little, using a mesh while stirring until you get a blend of thick consistency, similar to a cake mix. The waffle batter should be very loose, more like a smoothie texture.
Pour the mixture carefully into a waffle mold and bake it according to the instructions below.
Not enough time? No problem!
If you have too little time and your blender is potent, you can put all the ingredients in the blender and mix them for 5 minutes, and you will get (almost) perfect waffles too.
