Sweden Celebrates Waffle Day! Våffeldagen!

Waffles are eaten all the year round in Sweden but they are particularly popular on 25 March when we celebrate Våffeldagen (Waffle Day). Swedish waffles are flatter then the more well known Belgian waffle and are normally made in a special waffle maker that is in the shape of hearts!

So today I took my Keto Pancake recipe and added 1 Tbsp melted butter and 2 Tbsp almond flour to thicken it up!

I also made a new batch of my Keto Mock Maple Syrup to go with it!

I am in waffle heaven😍😇

What are your favorite types of waffles?

How do you top your waffle?

Keto Mock Maple Syrup

Since starting keto I have found that there are many different companies catching on and making sugar free versions of the most beloved condiments. Ketchup, dressings and maple syrup.

I have and still do enjoy pancakes and waffles😋 They are the ultimate breakfast, especially when they are keto!

I have tried monkfruit maple syrup topping and walden’s calorie free maple syrup. They are ok. They work for what they are but I think they are too thin.

I figured I could get the ratios right if I tried and I DID!!

There are two odd ingredients in this recipe, one is glucomannon. I have brought it up before and you can get it online. I recommend the NOW brand one. Its a small investment that lasts as you only use a tiny 1/4 to 1/2 tsp per recipe. It is used in my baking mix as well. Its worth it, get some!

The 2nd is Organic Maple Extract. I get both of these online. The extract is not only good for this maple syrup recipe but also for my Keto Breakfast Sandwich recipe and make your own Keto Brown Sugar! I love adding a little to my Keto Pancakes too!

Keto Mock Maple Syrup

3/4 cup water + 2 Tbsp

3 Tbsp erithrytol

1/4 tsp stevia

1 tbsp butter

1/2 tsp maple extract

Pinch salt

1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses

1/4 tsp glucomannon

Put all in a medium saucepan EXCEPT for glucomannon. Bring to boil then sprinkle glucomannon in while whisking briskly.

Turn down to simmer while still whisking. Whisk 1 to 2 minutes until thickened.

Remove from heat and let it cool a little before putting in a jar, or recycled syrup bottle!

Keto Blueberry Waffins

Since getting my Bella ceramic waffle maker I have been dreaming up things to make in it!

I did chocolate waffins last time, now it’s blueberry! They turned out to be like super rich waffles!

Soo so good! I gave instructions on how you could turn them into muffins if you don’t have a wafflemaker. But why don’t you have a wafflemaker yet?🤔

Go make these cause 2 will fill you up nice! It wouldn’t hurt to put some butter on them and have with Lakanto Maple flavor syrup either, just saying😍

Keto Blueberry Waffins

Dry:

2 cups almond flour

3 Tbsp Lakanto monkfruit sweetener

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Wet:

4 lg eggs, room temperature

5 Tbsp butter + 3 Tbsp coconut oil; melted&cooled

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp stevia glycerite/liquid stevia

1 cup frozen blueberries

Whisk dry. Whisk wet. Add wet to dry while whisking.

Stir in blueberries.

Either scoop onto waffle iron and cook 3 min.

-or-

Scoop into 12 muffin tins and bake at 350F for 20 to 25min until set. Cool for 10 min in the pan.

2.3 net carb per waffin, or muffin.


Keto Breakfast Sandwich Buns

What is your Keto breakfast go to?

Mine is, and has been bacon and eggs for months. I am quite loyal to routine and find that 5 out of 7 days I go for the easy, the reliable, bacon and fried eggs!

I will throw in pancakes or muffins sometimes for good measure, but mostly I stick with quick and easy so I can get on with my day!

Well these special breakfast sandwich buns are super easy!! You just whip it up in the blender, bake and eat! Then stack up a couple fried eggs with cheese and bacon and your set! Try with ham for a twist instead of bacon.

Lets get these buns in the oven😄

The only special ingredient needed you may not have is maple extract. This gives the buns a breakfast taste that really sets it apart from other “muffin” type sandwich buns.

Get some online. I recommend Frontier brand as it is the best one that doesn’t leave an aftertaste!

You will also need wide mouth canning rings as molds. I greased them then set on a parchment lined pan.

Bake until golden, then gently push out from the underside.

Keto Breakfast Sandwich Buns

2 large eggs

2 oz cream cheese

2/3 cup Almond Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp maple extract

10-15 drops liquid stevia

Place the ingredients for the buns into a blender and pulse until smooth.

Pour evenly into greased wide mouth canning rings (approximately 2-3 tbsp per lid) that are sitting on a silpat, foil or parchment. This all should be sitting on a flat cookie sheet.

Fill up till 1/4 inch from top.

Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes or until set. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the rings.

Use in your sandwich of bacon, egg and cheese!

Will keep up to 5 days in fridge.


Keto Copycat Brown Sugar

You may have heard of Sukrin gold sugar. It is a sugar free brown sugar replacement. After looking at its ingredients I see that malt flavoring is used. This is something I avoid as I steer clear of gluten since I have an intolerance. My sinuses swell and I break out in eczema😣

Malt is usually made from barley and is not gluten free. It can be made from corn, but that is rare. Most malt comes from barley grain that has been soaked, germinated and dried. Ingredients made from maltinclude malt flavoring,

malt syrup and malt extract, none of which are currently considered gluten free.

So imagine how excited I was to put together some commonly found ingredients to make a very tasty copycat substitute of this baking gem!

I have found my ingredients online at thrivemarket.com or luckyvitamin.com for sales. Amazon pretty much has them all too!

Keto Copycat Brown Sugar

1 cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener(golden preferred over classic)

3/4 tsp Frontier Brand Maple Flavoring/Extract(preferred,but others may work)

1 tsp SweetLeaf Sweet Drops Liquid Stevia – Vanilla (or other brand that lists glycerin as 1st ingredient)

Put all ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork cutting the extract and stevia drops into it until it is uniform in color.

Use like brown sugar in recipes. This works great in baked goods especially!!

What would you use it in?

Keto Chocolate Chip Blondies

My daughter asked what a blondie was and I simply described it to be a brownie without cocoa!

It does have a semi-cake like texture, and semi-fudgey texture and holds up well in sack lunches!! It would be perfect for a bake sale too!

So these are gluten free and keto and will truly shock you at how yummy they are! You ABSOLUTELY need parchment paper to bake them in, otherwise it will be a mess!!

Eggs need to be room temperature!! If you forget to set them out, just immerse the eggs in super hot tap water for 10 minutes. Don’t worry, it won’t cook them!

That’s all for tips, so lets make some blondies!

Keto Chocolate Chip Blondies

1 stick butter(1/2 cup)

1/2 cup almond butter

1/3 cup powdered swerve

1/3 cup monkfruit

1/4 tsp stevia glycerite

1/4 tsp maple extract

2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs, room temperature

1 1/2 cup almond flour

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp baking powder

2/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips(like Lilys)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.

Melt butter and almond butter in medium saucepan.

Mix sweeteners and extracts in a small bowl.

Mix into saucepan.

Beat in eggs one at a time. Whisk well.

Now add flour, salt and baking powder.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until toothpick tested mostly clean with a few crumbs.

Cool before lifting out of pan and cutting into 16 squares.

Keto French Toast Sticks

It was before I made the choice to eat healthy when I would visit my fave fast food drive thru to get my breakfast of French Toast sticks. I would get an extra syrup cup, and never thought twice about the ingredients!

That was 8 yrs ago before my daughter was born and I became conscience of my eating habits! I have since gone gluten free and most recently keto! I still have my two children to feed so I have to recreate favorites to make them healthier! So here you have my version of French Toast sticks! They were a big hit with the kids, and I plan on making extra and freezing for the busy school mornings ahead!

The first step in making these uber yummy sticks is to have your fave loaf of bread! You can purchase a loaf of keto bread, or follow my recipe to make your own! Here is my quick and easy recipe to make a tasty loaf of your own!

So now that you have your bread of choice ready, take out 3 slices and lets get started!

Cut each slice vertically into 3 pieces like this!

Set aside while you prepare the egg dip!

You will need a semi shallow bowl and add 2 large eggs and 1/4 cup heavy cream(or canned coconut milk).

Then add 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Whisk it all well until it looks like this! You want to make sure it is well whisked as you don’t want stringy egg whites cooked to your sticks!

Now its time to heat up your pan. Get it nice and hot and add 1 Tbsp coconut oil or butter. I prefer coconut oil as it gives it a fried doughnut taste😋!

Get your batter bowl close to the pan and dip each side into the egg wash. Gently place on the pan after you let the excess drip off.

Don’t crowd too many on as you want to have room to flip them!

Give it a few minutes and then flip to the other side. You want them golden brown like this.

Since my slices were thicker, I also put them on their sides to crisp up the edges. If your bread is thinner you won’t have to worry about this step.

Next add 1/4 cup Lakanto monkfruit sweetener (or preferred granulated sweetener) and 1 Tbsp cinnamon to a small bowl. Whisk well.

As the french toast sticks are done, brush them with softened, or melted butter.

Then dip each one in the cinnamon/sweetener bowl.

They are ready to either place on a cookie sheet and freeze for quick breakfasts, or to eat immediately!

I poured out some of Lakantos Sugar Free maple syrup to dip mine in. The kids used real maple syrup for theirs!

They are dense and filling! I absolutely loved these! The dipping is fun too!

This recipe makes 2 servings at approx. 5 net carbs per serving!
