Keto Coconut Flour Waffles

Keto Coconut Flour Waffles

I have always loved breakfast but was never one for waffles. With toppings like sugar based berry sauce and whipped cream drizzled with maple syrup they looked more like a dessert than breakfast. I always found them to be too filling, leaving me feeling tired and dragged down. That is not exactly a great way to fuel ones body for the day.

That was then, this is now.

What changed?

I found Keto.

What is Keto?

The Ketogenic way of eating is a high fat, high protein, low carb lifestyle. Our bodies use the carbs and sugar (glucose) we eat to fuel our bodies. Because we are using sugar for energy, fat is stored in our bodies. On the Ketogenic way of eating we wean our bodies off of sugar by reducing the amount of sugar and carbs we consume. Ultimately our goal is to get our bodies into a state of Ketosis. Many of the carbs we eat convert to sugars so cutting back on sugar alone will not get out bodies into a state of Ketosis.Carbs make you fat

 

What is Ketosis?

1 to 3 weeks after we stop eating sugars, including those in found fruit and limiting our carb intake, our bodies no longer have the sugar to burn for energy. It is at this point our livers start to produce Ketones. Once your body reaches this metabolic state it begins burning fat for energy in place of sugar. Think about that for a moment. Our bodies burning fat for energy. It is that simple. It can not only transform the way you look, more importantly it can change the way you feel. Drastically. Imagine being Diabetic and just by eating more fat and protein and cutting back on carbs YOU can reverse the disease, to the point where you no longer need to take medication and insulin. That’s pretty powerful. And once you wrap your head around the idea of eating fat to lose weight it is easy. I talked about the few of the reasons I am now enjoying a Ketogenic lifestyle in an earlier post when I made Keto friendly pizza. 

fat...the fuel nature intended

 

Once you commit to the Ketogenic way of eating you discover that you will need replacements for the wheat filled foods you ate in the past. Breads, cookies, crackers, cakes, waffles are all off limits using regular wheat flour. The great thing is there are easy delicious recipes using coconut and almond flours.

Gluten Free Flours

Cooking and baking with alternative flours is a bit different then using traditional white and whole wheat flour. Coconut and almond flours do not contain gluten so it needs to be treated differently to produce favourable results. The great thing is the internet is a huge resource for amazing Ketogenic recipes and you can find a substitute for all the foods you love and enjoy. Gluten is in the wheat we grew up eating, giving the dough its strength and elasticity, it is what causes dough to rise and gives breads its shape. It also causes brain fog, inflammation, celiac disease and a huge number of health issues that many do not even realize is happening in their bodies simply because they are eating wheat. If you want to know more about what eating wheat does to your body a great watch on Netflix is The Magic Pill. Though I have done a lot of research on Ketogenics, the information I found in watching that show was quite eye opening.

  1. Hi Melissa,

    I do not think it would be a good option. The coconut flour absorbs so much liquid the it would probably be a thick mess if it sat that long.

    You could always give it a try though. I’d love to hear how it turns out if you do try it.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Emily, it is definitely a win when we can make something our teenagers enjoy!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. We made these for dinner and they were great! You can taste the coconut flavor. But, my teenagers loved them.

  4. They are so good! I was not a waffle fan until I had these. Now they are something I eat often. Thanks for stopping by Norma.

  5. Beth, so glad they turned out well for you. They are a favourite here and are my go to when I am craving a big breakfast.

    Thanks so much for stopping by.

  6. I made these today and the hubs gave them a 9.5 on smell and taste! They were delicious and a great addition to my Keto recipe collection. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Hello Luann,

    I agree, I was never big into waffles until I went Keto and needed to find some really great breakfast options. These are so good that you don’t feel like you are missing out, in fact those eating waffles with white flour are the ones missing out.

    I am glad you enjoy the recipe. I love that it is quick and easy to whip up!

    Have a fantastic weekend, thanks for stopping by.

  8. Good morning Jennifer,

    Damn I am sorry they didn’t turn out for you. I hate when ingredients are wasted. I have never had them stick like that so I don’t know what went wrong. You can definitely use this batter to make pancakes.

    Better luck next time!

    Thank you for stopping by.

  9. Hi Vanessa,

    I imagine you can but I can not promise what kind of results you will achieve. Because coconut flour becomes quite dense from its ability to absorb liquid it creates a nice texture with the waffle. If you try another flour I would love to hear your results. I think something to keep in mind if you experiment with the recipe is that whichever flour you decide to go with you will need more to use more then what is asked for in the recipe. I would start with 6 tablespoons and see how thick you batter is then adjust accordingly.

    Thank you for stopping by.

  10. Hello Kristi,

    That is exactly what it is. You can also substitute any type of keto sweetener you have on hand.
    I always have xylitol or erythritol in my pantry which will work. Swerve is also an option. If you are near a bulk store they often have all sorts of keto friendly sweeteners including bulk monk fruit.

  11. The waffles were so delicious. Taste and texture was spot on. So nice to have a normal breakfast that’s filling.

  12. Stuck horribly to my waffle maker. Removed it in crumbles, washed the waffle maker and then sprayed the plates well with non-stick spray. Still stuck a bit. Now the beeping won’t stop because water probably got inside when I tried to clean off the stuck waffle. I’m going back to pancakes…

  13. Hi Kim,

    They are so good they really do not feel like a specialty waffle at all. I will keep in mind that halving the recipe works fine. I love the fact that they freeze well also. Nice to have some o hand for those days I am short on time. Thanks for giving them a try and stopping by! Also if you are looking for a fantastic Keto Cracker I just posted one about an hour ago. It is definitely a winner.

    Have a great weekend.

  14. Ok so this WAFFLE was perfect! I only wanted 2 so I did half the recipe and it came out just like a real tasting waffle. I hate that eggy taste in most other keto flour necessary recipes, but this was not eggy at all. It didn’t have a coconut flavor either it was just a subtle sweet waffle taste. I did add a little water after mixing to make the batter thinner and I only used vanilla extract. My favorite new breakfast for sure!

  15. Great info of keto, i have pcos so always finding that dishes of low carb. The recipe seems very easy, tasty and yummy. Definitely gonna try it, thanks.
