<article> <section> <header>Keto Cinnamon Almond Flour Waffles</header> <p align="justify">Choosing to go keto doesn’t mean that you have to give up all your favorite foods. With just a few ingredient swaps, you can still eat all of your favorite foods, including waffles! These keto waffles are cinnamony, fluffy and won’t leave you feeling lousy or low-energy like normal sugary breakfasts do.</p> <header>What’s the Deal with Almond Flour?</header> <p align="justify">Almond flour –– ground blanched almonds –– is a staple for keto baking! Many keto and gluten-free recipes use almond flour as a good alternative to carb-heavy flour. It’s easy to bake with, and won’t taste much different than your regular baking. Almond flour tends to make recipes thicker, which is perfect for the batter of these keto waffles.</p> <p align="justify">Almond flour is also a great alternative because of its health benefits. It only contains 4.3 grams of carbs per 100 grams, making it a great low-carb alternative! What’s more, almond flour is high in Vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant in your body and can help with heart health and cancer.</p> <header>The Surprising Benefits of Cinnamon</header> <p align="justify">Cinnamon does a lot more than add some tasty flavor to these waffles! Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants, helps your digestive system, and can also help control inflammation.</p> <p align="justify">One of the more impressive superpowers, cinnamon can lower blood sugar! When glucose is released into your bloodstream, insulin typically controls it to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Cinnamon can have the same effects as insulin, which controls and limits the amount of glucose in your body to maintain better blood sugar levels. It blocks the enzymes that typically allow the quick release of glucose, which is great for those with diabetes.</p> <p align="justify">Cinnamon is not only a tasty alternative to sugary syrups and sweeteners, but it also does great things for your body!</p> <header>Low-Carb Keto Waffles Serving Suggestion</header> <p align="justify">Traditional waffles are full of carbs thanks to all the flour. These Keto waffles with cinnamon have fewer carbs because the flour comes from a different source – almonds. If you were to eat a mega-sized Belgium waffle, you would still be consuming a lot of carbs because that is a lot of nuts. With that in mind, it would be wise to opt for a smaller portion of waffles topped with fruit, and supplement the smaller portions with eggs, bacon, or sausages. An added benefit of eating more protein and fewer waffles is that you will stay full for a longer time, thanks to the high protein content of eggs and pork.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">Keto Cinnamon Almond Flour Waffles</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT10M">Prep Time: 10 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT4M">Cooking Time: 3-4 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 2</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients:</div> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ cup almond flour</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ tsp salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ tsp baking soda</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ tsp baking powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ tsp cinnamon</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ tsp monk fruit sweetener or preferred keto sweetener</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 eggs</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tsp vanilla or maple extract</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tbsp melted grass-fed butter</li> </ul> <p align="justify">If you are serving more than two people, you can double, triple, or even quadruple this recipe based on how many servings you need.</p> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions:</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Mix together almond flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and sweetener.</li> <li>Whisk together the eggs, then add in vanilla or maple extract and butter until combined.</li> <li>Slowly mix in the dry mixture until it is fully combined with no chunks.</li> <li>Preheat waffle iron and coat with coconut oil or butter.</li> <li>Pour batter into waffle iron and cook per iron instructions until golden brown. Top with butter, additional cinnamon or keto maple syrup!</li> </ol> <b>Extra Tips</b> <p align="justify">When you take the waffles out of the iron, they will be a bit more fragile than traditional waffles due to the almond flour. This is totally normal, so there is no need to worry. They seem to get a bit more firm as they cool, so keep that in mind.</p> <p align="justify">If you want your waffles to be light and fluffy, then fold in egg whites instead of just regular eggs. In the past, egg yolks have been demonized, but newer research has proven that they are full of things that are good for you, like iron and protein. However, if you substitute one of the eggs for egg whites, you will find your keto waffles to be more fluffy and fun.</p> <header>Meal Prep Your Almond Flour Waffles</header> <p align="justify">Remember eating those frozen waffles when you were a kid? They were so easy and fun, because all you had to do was take them out of the freezer and pop them in the toaster. Well, what’s stopping you from doing that now? You can save time and money by making your Keto-friendly waffles in a large batch, then throw the left-overs in a freezer-friendly bag and store it in the freezer. Tomorrow morning you can breakfast ready in just a couple minutes, or maybe you’ll want to save them for your kids on the weekend. Either way, you have an easy-to-prepare Keto breakfast waiting for you in the freezer.</p> </section> </article>
