Keto Almond Flour Waffles Recipe
Delicious keto almond flour waffles are crispy on the sides, soft and tasty on the inside. They are perfect breakfast or brunch treats for the whole gang.
What is? (History/Background)
Historians date back waffles to ancient Greece – where cooks and chefs roast flat cakes in between metal attached to wooden handles. These ancient waffles are not as sweet as the modern pastry has. They were similar to unleavened pieces of bread made by the catholic priest to be given to the poor.
As time went by, spices and other ingredients were added one by one to compliment the consumers' demand and evolving tastebuds. From thin unleavened bread to thick flatbread was introduced in the 15th century. With the evolution of waffles in the 15th century, blacksmiths began forging rectangular metal plates with a grid pattern to be used in shaping the waffles that we use up until today.
This recipe is an excellent breakfast choice for those following a ketogenic diet and those who have allergies to gluten, as this recipe is gluten-free. Almonds contain an elevated amount of monounsaturated fat, which is good for you and your heart. A balanced diet should have an amount of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats coming from nuts and oils. It reduces the harmful cholesterol levels that promote fatty build-up in the body, especially in the veins.
Tips and Procedure
