Keto Waffles

“These waffles are great for storing in the freezer and popping straight into the toaster oven.” The waffles with almond flour are totally healthy. They are so fluffy, easy and quick to make. Just perfect!

keto waffles



One thing that makes this an easy and quick recipe is that I add all ingredients to a blender. But I have one more secret for you: in this recipe, I use sour cream: I think this gives the waffle a creamy but also fluffy texture.

Course – Breakfast
Cuisine – American
Prep Time – 10 minutes
Cook Time – 4 minutes
Servings – 2 waffles
INGREDIENTS
    • 1 large egg
    • 1/2 cup almond flour
    • 2 tbsp erythritol or any sweetener
    • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
    • 2 tbsp almond butter
    • 2 tbsp coconut oil to grease the waffle iron
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk warmed up
    • 50 ml sour cream
  • 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the waffle iron to high heat. Grease lightly (I usually coconut oil).
  2. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend them on high speed for about 1 minute until all the ingredients get nice and smooth. If you don’t have a blender, you can mix it manually in a small bowl on for a minute or two.
  3. Pour half the mixture (about 3/4 cup) onto the lightly greased waffle iron. Close and cook until steam stops coming out for about 3/4 minutes.
  4. Unplug and let cool slightly in the waffle iron to make the waffle easier to remove. It will crisp up as it goes from hot to warm.
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Low Carb & Sugar-Free Lemon Curd Tart

This is a simple and easy recipe but you need to be patient because you need to whisk constantly the mixture for about 10-15 minutes. Put the lemon zest and juice, eggs, Erythritol (or any sweetener of your taste) and vanilla (this makes the taste of lemon curd more richer) in a small saucepan and whisk until everything is combined and smooth. Then add coconut oil and continue to whisk. You can’t forget to whisk the mixture the entire time. When the mixture is thickened and the color turns slightly lighter the lemon curd is ready.

LOW CARB & SUGAR-FREE KETO LEMON CURD TART

Course – Dessert
Prep Time – 15 minutes
Cook Time – 15 minutes
Servings – 6 slices
INGREDIENTS
Crust
    • 2 cup almond flour
    • 1/2 tsp Salt
    • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
Lemon Curd
    • 2 lemons juice
    • 5 eggs
    • 1/3 cup erythritol or any sweetner of your taste
    • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
INSTRUCTIONS
Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 14″ x 4.5″ rectangular tart pan with a removable bottom with parchment paper and grease the sides.
  2. In a small food processor, pulse the almond flour and the salt until combined. Add the coconut oil and eggs and pulse a few more times until a dough forms. Warning: it will be very sticky.
  3. Transfer the crumble into a piece of plastic wrap and wrap the dough. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to firm up slightly or 2-3 minutes in the freezer if you are in a hurry.
  4. Remove the dough from the freezer, unwrap and place into the center of the pie pan. Press firmly into the bottom of the pan and up the sides, as evenly as you can.
  5. Prick all over with a fork. This will allow the steam to escape and prevent the crust from puffing up while it bakes.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the sides are golden brown
Lemon Curd
  1. Whisk lemon juice and zest, eggs, sweetener, and vanilla together in a saucepan.
  2. Turn on the heat to low-medium and stir constantly for 5-10 minutes until the curd thickens up. Do not put the heat to high as the eggs will scramble. Always cook the curd on low-medium heat.
  3. When the curd has thickened, add the coconut oil and mix in.
  4. Pour slightly cooled lemon curd into the prepared crust, smoothing to the edges. Garnish with fresh berries and chill until serving time.

      • 1 tsp cinnamon
      • 1 tbsp erythritol
      • 1/8 tsp stevia powder
    • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)

    Cheesecake

      • 300 g cream cheese (room temperature)
      • 90 g sour cream
      • 3 tbsp erythritol
      • 1/2 tsp stevia powder
      • 1/2 tsp vanilla
      • 1/2 tsp baking powder

    Optional Decorating ingredients

      • lily’s dark chocolate chips (melted)
      • almonds (chopped)
    • cashew nuts (chopped)

INSTRUCTIONS

    • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F.  Wrap the bottom of a 6” springform pan with aluminum foil.
    • In a small bowl, mix the ingredients for the crust together until it resembles a buttery crumble.  Place in your springform pan and press unto the bottom with a spoon.  Even it out with the back of the spoon.
    • In a large bowl, place the cream cheese, sour cream, erythritol, stevia powder and vanilla, and beat with a hand mixer until the mixture is completely smooth and creamy.  Add the eggs one at a time and mix until incorporated. Do not overmix!! Add the baking powder, and mix for a few seconds.
    • Pour the cheesecake batter into the springform pan over the crust.  Tap a couple of times on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles (if there were any).
    • Prepare a tall oven-proof tray and add 2-3 (1″) of water.  Carefully place your aluminum-wrapped cheesecake into the water and place into the oven.  Bake for 60 minutes.
    • Open the oven door and let the cheesecake cool completely inside the oven for 1-2 hours until completely cooled (Your cheesecake should still be giggly in the middle).  Cover with plastic wrap, and place into the fridge overnight.
  • These steps should ensure that your cheesecake does not crack when baking or cooling down.

NOTES

I have tested baking this cheesecake at a higher temperature (170C/340F) for 45 minutes, but it had cracked. However, it was really dense and rich. This time, baking it at 150C/300F, the cheesecake did not crack and it was really rich and fluffy at the same time.

low carb cheesecake keto

Course – Dessert
Prep Time – 10 minutes
Cook Time – 1 hour
Servings – 16 slices
INGREDIENTS

Almond Flour Cheesecake Crust

    • 2 cups Blanched almond flour
    • 1/3 cup Butter (measured solid, then melted)
    • 3 tbsp Erythritol (granular or powdered works fine)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Keto Cheesecake Filling

    • 32 oz Cream cheese (softened)
    • 1 1/4 cup Powdered erythritol (erythritol must be powdered; can also use powdered monk fruit sweetener)
    • 3 large Egg
    • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Grease a 9 in (23 cm) springform pan (or you can line the bottom with parchment paper).
  2. To make the almond flour cheesecake crust, stir the almond flour, melted butter, erythritol, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl, until well combined. The dough will be slightly crumbly. Press the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until barely golden. Let cool at least 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese and powdered sweetener together at low to medium speed until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Finally, beat in the lemon juice and vanilla extract. (Keep the mixer at low to medium the whole time; too high speed will introduce too many air bubbles, which we don’t want.)
  4. Pour the filling into the pan over the crust. Smooth the top with a spatula (use a pastry spatula for a smoother top if you have one).
  5. Bake for about 45-55 minutes, until the center is almost set, but still jiggly.
  6. Remove the cheesecake from the oven. If the edges are stuck to the pan, run a knife around the edge (don’t remove the springform edge yet). Cool in the pan on the counter to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight), until completely set. (Do not try to remove the cake from the pan before chilling.)
  7. Serve with fresh raspberry sauce if desired.*

RECIPE NOTES

  • To make the optional raspberry sauce, simmer 1 cup fresh raspberries with 2 tablespoons water and sweetener to taste, for 5-10 minutes, breaking the berries with a spatula. Add additional water to thin out to your liking.
  • There has been some confusion about carb counts. Two things to watch for:
    • Erythritol is not included in carb count because it does not get metabolized. Most calculators like MFP do not know to exclude it.
    • The official USDA database lists cream cheese as 1.56g of carbs per ounce. Some product labels may round this up or down, but it’s actually the same for any full-fat cream cheese regardless of brand. Some calculators round this up to 2g per ounce, which can account for a big difference when extrapolating to the 32 oz needed for this low carb cheesecake recipe.
