I can admit openly that I’m more of a pancake person than a waffle person but there’s a time and place for everything. And when I get a hankering for waffles, these Maple Pecan Keto Waffles often come to mind.
I mean, what’s not to love about waffles? Crispy and golden with those awesome pockets that I’m 100% positive are for the sole purpose of holding little pools of melted butter and syrup.
How to make these low carb waffles
First of all, these low carb waffles are insanely easy to make. It’s pretty much just you throwing everything into the blender and letting it go.
The cool thing about these being Keto waffles is that you don’t have to worry about over mixing them since they don’t contain any gluten. Over mixing waffles made with wheat flour would lead to a tough, unappealing result.
The pecans are tossed in after everything is blended up so you get that nice crunch when you bite into your waffles.
These waffles literally have maple pecan flavor all up in them. I used both vanilla and maple extracts as flavoring for the batter. Then I utilized my ChocZero Maple Pecan Syrup to add even more flavor!
What a way to start your day, am I right?
This syrup is incredibly thick. Like, impressively thick. The first time I tried the Maple Pecan Syrup I was so happy because I actually found a sugar free syrup that wasn’t super watery.
ChocZero sweetens their syrups with monk fruit. This is awesome because you don’t get that:
- cooling sensation you can get with erythritol.
- aftertaste you get with too much stevia.
- funky list of ingredients
Also, each serving is only 1g net carbs.
Storing your Keto waffles
These waffles will keep for about 3 days in the refrigerator but you can probably stretch them to 5. I wouldn’t go past that point though.
I personally always store my Keto baked goods in the freezer. I’m just one Keto person and sometimes I can’t finish everything I make before it goes bad. Homemade baked goods don’t last as long in general since they don’t really contain any preservatives.
In the freezer these waffles last about 3 months. They make a super fast Keto breakfast, all you have to do is pop them in the toaster. Keep an eye on them though, they go from perfectly warmed to burned pretty quickly.
A couple notes on these Keto waffles
Like I said, these waffles are not and should not be complicated at all. If you don’t have the maple extract you can just double up on the vanilla.
I promise it won’t break this recipe.
If you decide not to go with the ChocZero Maple Pecan Syrup, that’s ok too. It’s definitely highly recommended though.
I know there will be comments asking if you can sub one flour for the other and I honestly I don’t know. If you do sub any of the flours or ingredients, let me know down in the comments how it turns out.
That way I may even be able to update the post in order to help someone else.
Each one teach one.
These Maple Pecan Keto Waffles will definitely leave you feeling satisfied. These super simple low carb blender waffles are also gluten and sugar free. Chopped pecans are added to the batter to give you an amazing bit of texture in your crisp, golden gluten free waffle.
- Start by preheating your waffle iron. If it has heat settings, select medium.
- Combine all the ingredients, minus the pecans, into your blender and blend for about a minute or two, until everything is evenly combined. Add in the pecans.
- At this point you can either pour the mixture into a bowl and dispense it into your waffle maker from there or you can leave the batter in the blender. I usually do the latter to avoid making any more dishes.
- You can keep the waffles warm in an oven heated to 200 degrees. Keep a towel over the waffles or they may dry out.
