Well….Wonderful Waffles any day of the week!
The wonderfully, warm, maplely, aroma when these are “baking” in the waffle iron inevitably brings one of my kids…then another and another….into the kitchen saying, “Yum that smells so good, what are you making?” but alas…they are only for their Keto- sister Autumn to enjoy – oh, the benefits of being on the diet! This recipe comes from The Keto Cookbook listed under resources. We quadruple the batch, several times over, and then freeze them so they are ready to have on hand whenever you want to serve up, well… “Wonderfulness” 😉
Here are the ingredients you will need (See “Recipe Tab” for exact measurements)
The first thing you need to do is measure out how many pecans you will need. You then “grind” them until they are into very small pieces. We have tried using a blender, but for some reason pecans just don’t grind well. We put the nuts in a double plastic bag and get out the good old meat mallet (works great when you can’t find a hammer as well 🙂 ) and start pounding away. To save time, we “pound” a big batch of nuts at a time. This only takes a few minutes and some of the kids think its fun. Any extra nuts you have, store in the fridge – which is where we keep all of our nuts to keep them fresher longer.
Next beat your eggs, and add a bit of maple flavoring – or any other flavoring you might like. Bickford Brands is the brand that Debbie Snyder recommends in Keto Kid. Then add the rest of your ingredients, stir it up and pour into waffle iron.
Depending on your waffle iron they will cook for about 7-8 minutes – and your house will smell so good!
After these are cooled we wrap each one in its own bag and then put them all in a large freezer bag and into the freezer they. They are then ready when you are. When it comes time to eat one, we top it with whip cream (don’t let anyone discourage you by saying you have to use a lot of cream on the diet – I only wish I could enjoy as much as my daughter does!) and berries. Measure your cream, beat it up, add a bit of your preferred sweetener…
Spread it on…yum…
