Keto Pancake/Waffle Mix
The batter for keto pancakes is perfect for waffle too since it yields the delicious end product.
In the keto pancakes other ratios are:
Protein = 9g
Fat = 15g
Net carbs = total carb – fiber = 5g carbs – 3g fiber = 2g net carbs
Ingredients for Batter:
Soft cream cheese = 4 oz
Eggs = 4
Vanilla extract/sugar free vanilla syrup = 2 teaspoons
Sugar substitute = 1tbs
Coconut flour = 4tbs
Dash cinnamon (optional) = 1
Baking powder = 1 ½ teaspoon
Maple extract (optional) = ½ teaspoon
Per serving of pancake is 200k cal
Preparation = 10 min. Cook time = 15 min
Almond milk as needed
For pancakes, only you can add ½ teaspoon baking powder, and for waffles only, you can add melted butter one tablespoon, though it is optional I recommend using it.
- Mix cream cheese, sugar substitute, eggs, maple extract, vanilla and cinnamon in a blender. If it is waffle batter, add melted butter
- Next, add coconut flour and baking powder in the mixture and blend it, until it gets mixed well
- In case of more than few minutes, if the matter is left to sit, it may thicken. To handle such issue, add a bit almond milk to make it thin
Recipe for Pancakes:
Take the electric griddle and set at 300F, or you can take the greased pan heated at the medium level, put the batter in it in the form of circles of about 4-6 inch diameter.
As the edges become brownish and harden, flip pancakes, you will see little bubbles on their surface. Cook the second side for 2-3 mins and take off at becoming golden brown.
Recipe for Waffles:
Preheat the waffle iron and add batter into it. Keep there for 5-7 minutes and take off until it gets golden brown color. You can serve waffles with sugar-free syrup, butter, fruit jam, etc.
Per serving is four but with the varying ratio, this may scale up or down. Not necessarily, you can use it as breakfast, but I recommend the use of waffles toasting make it a sandwich.
Some important points to bear in mind:
- Coconut flour cannot be replaced with the almond flour due to low carb element
- To get crispy waffles, add cooking oil spray before waffles
- To get smooth batter, mix the mixture until it becomes fluffy
- If you freeze waffles, you can reheat them for toasting
- You can alter the combination and try out dinner pancakes by using vanilla butter-net extract
- To get a protein boost, replace coconut flour with WakeShake, i.e., protein powder
- To get savory version, skip sweetener element
- Avoid making batter ahead of time, for it becomes too thick
- You can make dough by hand
