KETO LOW CARB AVOCADO & PROTEIN WAFFLES

Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles: 1.2g carbs.Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles

So easy and so delish! I cannot believe I’ve only just discovered how good both sweet and savoury waffles are. Better late than never, right? Well, these savoury ones are so good, so easy, so quick and so fail proof, that they’ve become my new ketogenic bread alternative.

You might wonder what compelled me to work on waffle recipes in the first place. Waffles aren’t exactly a British ‘thing’ after all. More of an American staple. But come on. Just google waffle recipe, hit send and check out the results.  How can you not drool whilst looking at those incredibly inviting American breakfast plates of bacon and eggs alongside waffles dripping with maple syrup!

Even if you don’t like maple syrup on bacon (it makes me gag), you have to admit that the rest looks pretty yummy.Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles

If you do like it, there is an amazing sugar free and low carb maple syrup recipe by the lovely Maya at wholesomeyum that you may want to try. 

With so many pictures of waffles next to THE keto epitome (I’m indeed referring to bacon and eggs), it was inevitable that I would ketofy a waffle recipe sooner or later. Indeed I had been toying with the idea for a while. It just so happens that last month I spotted a super discounted deal for a superb waffle maker on Amazon UK (click here for a similar US product) and I couldn’t resist it. I bought it on impulse against my better judgment, but boy am I glad I did.  It’s been in daily use pretty much since it arrived.

Looking for inspiring waffle recipes on the internet, I was truly spoilt for choice. So many to choose from.  It hadn’t occurred to me that waffles were so popular. My task was going to be easy -I thought. All I had to do was ketofy a few recipes, give them a try and pick the best… Turns out that I had to road tests many variations before I found my firm favourite. Which is exactly what you are going to get with today’s recipe: a very low carb, savoury waffle recipe, with perfect keto macros, that tastes incredible. 

Why Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles are a brilliant keto bread alternative.

Mixing the batter and poring it into your waffle maker takes minutes. Cooking the waffles takes minutes. It is therefore a very handy alternative when you’re short for time or you don’t feel like baking.Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles

Of course you may prefer a bread loaf or a seeded sandwich bread or even a batch of cloud bread. But if you want to make something quickly, or it’s too hot for the oven, or you simply have an avocado that’s way too ripe to be of use, why not make Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles?

For this recipe you can use either whey protein isolate or lupin flour, in the same quantities. The macros vary slightly, so I have provided both in the recipe below.

2-STEP Guide for Perfect Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles. 

You’ll love the simplicity:

Step 1: Put a glass bowl or jug over scales and measure ingredients as you add them one by one in the order of the recipe, then blitz until smooth using an immersion hand blender.Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles

Step 2: Pour into a pre-heated waffle iron and cook until no steam escapes (about 6-8 minutes).

All you have to pay attention to is that you measure using metric scales, such as these from Amazon.co.uk, or these from Amazon.com. Because you’re working with small quantities I strongly advise NOT to try and convert to cup/spoon measurements. Also, the macros given in the recipe are for the entire waffle batter. You may have some left over if your waffle maker is very small, or you may be a little short if you’re using a Belgian waffle machine, which tends to have deeper cavities. My 5-hearts shaped machine makes thin waffles, about 15cm in diameter.Keto Low Carb Avocado & Protein Waffles

Acacia Senegal or Psyllium Husk? 

For this waffle recipe you can use either fibre. I recommend Acacia Senegal if you are sensitive to psyllium – as I am. With my favourite brand unavailable, I had run into difficulty sourcing good psyllium husk. The poor quality of the psylliums I tested led to many baking disasters as well as many painfully bloated nights. Hence my decision to start  using Acacia Senegal as an alternative. It has worked wonders so far and I’m really happy with it. I realise it’s an expensive purchase, but when you’re using 5g at a time the cost really does pale to insignificance.

  1. hi there, just tried this waffles, licked the batter first, and was missing a little something. So I added, cookie dough extract, 1 tbsp erythritol and a pinch of cinnamon and delicious. Thank you for this recipe. I have tried so many with too much almond flour or egg or ricotta this one is just perfect and doesn’t weigh you down like a rock afterwards. PS getting my lupin flour in today for the tiramisu, so excited !!!!!

    • Hi there! Great tip! These were designed to be savoury waffles. I will be posting a sweet equivalent soon…and now you’ve given me some great ideas, it will make my job easier. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for all the hard work you do to post these recipes. I want to eat keto all the time but its so hard. Do you know of a good book to help me. I don’t have sugar diabetics when I don’t eat carbs. But hard to get back. How do you do it?

    • Hi! Thank you for your kind comment! I know KETO is hard. Try to embrace it as a lifestyle, rather than feel restricted by it. I am writing a Keto guide and meal plan, but it won’t be published for a while yet. Meanwhile, if you Google “Keto meals for beginners” you’ll find several options that you may like. Carbs are evil, don’t give up Keto, you CAN do it!

      • Thank you so much. Maybe I can get a copy of your keto guide when you get it done. I will remember what you said to think of it as a lifestyle. That will help me. Thanks again.

Make me happy! Leave a comment!
