Maple Keto Waffle Recipe
I thought that because there were SO MANY low carb waffle recipes on Pinterest, surely I didn't need to create one of my own.
But as it turns out, I was kind of disappointed.
Not really in the recipes themselves, but in the macros of those ratios. In other words, I didn't like the percentage of Fats, Carbs, and Protein in the waffles, or they had so many calories that I couldn't eat the whole thing!
And where's the fun in that?
No one wants to eat half a waffle.
So I created my own, and it was good, but not great, until one day when I decided to add some maple extract to it.
Obviously syrup is out when you're low-carb, (yes there are sugar free syrups, but I'm not very impressed with any of them yet) but adding in the maple extract to whipped egg whites, and a bit of low carb flour completely transforms this already good waffle into something GREAT.
You'll start by whipping a couple of egg whites almost like you're making a meringue. They should form stiff peaks. If you're still needing your workout today, you can do this by hand, or if you're like me just use a hand mixer or KitchenAid. It's your call.
Then add in every other ingredient, mix it all up, grease your waffle iron, and cook the waffle until browned.
In this recipe, I used a combination of Truvia + Maple Extract.
However, it's just as delicious to substitute this Maple Flavored Stevia Liquid (2 tsp) and the waffle will turn out just as great!
