Keto Sweet Potato Pancakes… or Waffles…

How To Make Keto Waffles

I discovered sweet potato waffles last year and I loved them. In swapping to the Keto diet, I wanted to find something akin to that but still true to the Ketogenic ratios. This recipe mostly holds to that end result: you still get the sweet potato flavor while sidestepping the hit of the sweet potato carbs.

I did try this in an older waffle iron and the result was a little problematic. I swapped to using the batter for a pancake equivalent and it worked really well. If you go  for the waffle process, don’t skimp on the butter to lube up the waffle irons: the egg in the recipe really makes it prone to sticking.

Ingredients

  • 54g sweet potatoes
  • 125g cream cheese
  • 1tsp liquid stevia
  • 4 eggs
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • dash of cinnamon (optional)

Process

  • Microwave the sweet potatoes until they are the consistency of cooked / mashed potatoes
  • Beat the sweet potatoes in with cream cheese
  • Add stevia and 4 eggs
  • Add in coconut and almond flours
  • Heat waffle iron
  • Melt 2 tbsp butter
  • Beat egg white into a foam
  • Fold into batter
  • Butter up waffle iron with a brush
  • Start waffling

 
Serves: 3 (it’s great with marscapone and a side of bacon)
