These easy low carb waffles are made with low carb flours and flavoured with chopped pecans, cinnamon and vanilla. A delicious gluten free weekend breakfast too.
Waffles with a crunch, the pecans are lightly toasted in the waffle iron giving these low carb waffles a delicious flavour and smell.
The best thing about a waffle is the small squares that hold the sugar free syrup! The waffles are very filling too and now firmly on our weekend breakfast menu.
How to make low carb waffles
This is such a simple recipe as the batter is made in a food blender.
What You Need
- Almond Flour - Gives the waffle a firm texture
- Coconut Flour - Adds extra fibre to the waffles.
- Eggs - Medium size
- Almond Milk - You could use coconut milk but use the one out of a carton. Tinned coconut milk would be too thick.
- Butter - unsalted
- Brown low carb sweetener - Other low carb sweetener could be used. I like the extra flavour the brown sweetener gives.
- Cinnamon - The warm spices goes well with the pecans. You could use pumpkin pie spice mix instead.
- Vanilla extract
- Chopped pecans
Recipe Tips & Suggestions
Replace the cinnamon with grated lemon zest and juice for a different flavour.
The pecans can be replaced with walnuts.
The waffles can be made ahead, kept in a container in the fridge and heated when ready to devour!
