When I began the Paleo lifestyle about 8 years ago, there were fewer options for replacing wheat-based delights like waffles.  Today, however, we can enjoy Keto waffles made with whey powder and eggs

Classic pancakes and waffles are comfort foods.  Let’s face it, pancakes and waffles are made from wheat-based refined flour.  Refined carbs cause rapid spikes in our blood sugar and insulin levels.  That feeling of comfort is really short-lived.  What follows is a drop in blood sugar, causing hunger and cravings.  Add to this that pancakes and waffles are usually drenched in high sugar syrup.  The whole meal promotes insulin resistance and increases the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and other major illnesses and diseases.

These Keto, high protein waffles are a treat.  They allow you to experience the same satisfying tastes and flavours, all the while feeding goodness into your body.  Keto waffles deliver protein to your body with no insulin spikes.  A super healthy treat!

RECIPE NUTRITIONAL VALUE: 

Adding whey protein powder can be of benefit to your diet and health.  If you are sedentary and do little physical exercise, the addition of whey protein in your diet may be unnecessary.  However, if you are a weight lifter, athlete, or person who regularly lifts weights to keep strong, you may discover that the additional protein (in this form) actually helps you gain muscle and lose fat.

One scoop of whey protein (37 g) offers 0.5 fat, only 50 mg of sodium, zero sugars, 2 carbohydrates, and 25 grams of quality protein.  This scoop has only 125 calories.  I found that the waffles with sugar-free “maple syrup”, blueberries, and almonds did not sustain me for very long.  I felt hungry within an hour.  I have added 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to the recipe.  This makes the waffles moister and fulfilling for a longer time.

RECIPE TASTE PROFILE: 

The predominant taste sensation of the waffles is crispiness.  They are light and fluffy and without the coconut oil, slightly dry.

RECIPE:

In a bowl combine all ingredients except for coconut milk. Blend together well.

KETO PROTEIN WAFFELS

Add milk a little at a time, mixing constantly to make pancake batter smooth. Use more milk if required. (At first it may appear as though the combination is clumpy, but keep mixing. It will smooth out.)

KETO PROTEIN WAFFELS

Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden.

KETO PROTEIN WAFFLES

Repeat the process with the remaining batter. The recipe makes 2 full waffles.
