KETO WAFFLES? Is that really a thing??
Waffles are something you may have thought you were never going to eat again on keto, but good news — that is not true in the least.
These blueberry waffles are easy to prepare, and loaded with fiber and antioxidants. You can reduce the carbs by leaving out the blueberries, but for a sometimes treat, these are absolutely delicious.
If you’ve never had psyllium husk, you can find it in health food or specialty stores where you buy keto products. Serve these with a hard boiled egg or two and some avocado on the side for a complete breakfast.
Keto Blueberry Waffles
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon ground psyllium husk
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
Put the coconut oil and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk, xanthan gum, and salt and stir. Cook until it begins to pull away from the pan and form a ball. Turn off heat.
Transfer ball to a mixing bowl, and let cool for 10 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time and then add the vanilla and baking soda. Beat until well combined. Fold in the blueberries.
Cook the batter in your waffle iron according to your manufacturers instructions. You’ll probably need to cook them a bit longer than usual to get crispy, well browned waffles.
Serve with grass-fed butter, additional fruit, and a favorite sugar-free syrup if you have one.
Note: this does not make a batter similar to traditional waffles, it will be more like a thick dough, so don’t be alarmed if it doesn’t seem right.
