One thing I have missed tremendously on this woe (way of eating) is waffles!
My search is over! I found a yummy recipe that actually tasted great (like a waffle should) and I will definitely be making it again.
I have been wanting to make a maple bacon waffle for a while but my biggest hesitation was the syrup. I don’t like to eat sugar-free with fake sweeteners. After all, my kids are eating these! I scoured the web for a simple keto/low carb syrup that I might be able to make instead of purchasing. If a simple recipe, that tastes good exists… I wasn’t able to find it! Time passed as I moped about without my waffles for some time and then a friend sent me a link to Lakanto. My keto waffle deprived life was changed forever! I had searched high and low to find a syrup that wasn’t loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners. This maple-flavored syrup is sweetened with Monk fruit, which is keto approved, and it also has a great taste! Monk fruit doesn’t raise blood sugar levels and it actually has a great number of antioxidants. Wanna know the best part? When I purchased they were running a half off sale and I got it for $4 a bottle! I stocked up on that and the other baking sugar replacements I was needing.
Here are the steps to make it along with a video for those of you visual learners.
In a bowl with a pour spout, whisk the dry ingredients first:
1 cup sifted Blanched Almond Flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
Next, add in the wet ingredients:
3 large organic eggs
2 tbsp oil (I chose avocado)
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream (add a little at a time, the recipe only really needed about a half of a cup to make the right consistency.)
Whisk all ingredients together until desired consistency.
Pour waffle mix onto greased waffle iron until crispy golden brown. Smother in butter, cooked bacon slices, and a bit of Lakanto Maple Syrup and enjoy! Using my Spider-Man waffle maker that my boys love, made 6 perfect waffles.
