The low-carb, high-protein keto diet has become a trendy approach for people aiming to shed weight quickly. Rather than using the natural sugars found in carbs for energy, the keto diet depends on “ketone bodies,” a fuel produced from stored fat in the liver.
In theory, it makes sense. But when you sit down for a meal and see something underwhelming on your plate staring back at you, the commitment to the low-carb, high-protein diet becomes a test of will.
That commitment is tested at the beginning of every single day with the same challenge: breakfast. Since launching our Dash Mini Waffle Maker in 2013, we’ve sold over one million units. As the Mini Waffle Maker flourished, we continued to show our waffle expertise time and time again, highlighted by products like the No-Drip Waffle Maker, 8” Express Waffle Maker, and Deluxe Waffle Bowl Maker.
As you may expect, our team gets peppered with questions about how to make keto waffles. Our Wonderful Mini Waffles Cookbook, which is set to hit shelves in September, includes a handful of delicious keto waffle recipes. But in the meantime, we took a deep dive into the depths of the food blogging world to compile a list of our favorite keto waffle recipes.
Take a look at our picks:
