Coconut Butter Breakfast Batter Waffles       (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, low-carb, keto)

For some reason, very few recipes satisfy me for thinking that I can’t make them better, so I tinker and try new things, almost every time. (For example, I posted a wonderful waffle recipe 2 weeks ago. Oops. It’s still really good, just more ingredients, and a little different flavor) Every once in awhile I hit the recipe holy grail, and then I stop. For this breakfast batter (I’m calling it that because it makes equally delicious, low-carb/keto waffles and pancakes), there is only one flaw. It doesn’t create a crisp outside. However, the pros to this batter are numerous. The flavor IS. SPOT. ON. Seriously, I’ve made quite a few successful waffles and pancake recipes and this one takes the {pan}cake. Haha. It’s too early for jokes, but not too early for waffles. In my opinion, it’s never too early for waffles. In addition to perfectly flavored and sweetened waffles and pancakes, the texture is great, if you can get past the lack of crispness. Without the addition of any syrup or topping, the texture and flavor remind me exactly of waffles or pancakes that have been smothered in syrup, and absorbed all that delicious flavor. But, “dry”. Soooo, these are perfectly portable. Last, but not least, there are only 7 ingredients. This is a score in my book where I always have two little “helpers” that are very helpful at making kitchen messes. This recipe comes together quickly and because of it’s versatility, you can make both pancakes and waffles at the same time, cutting your cooking time in half.

I could go on and on in my Ode to my Low Carb Coconut Butter Breakfast Batter, but alas, Backyardigans is almost over and that means I have to go be a Mom…so here’s the recipe! Try it…you’ll like it, I can almost guarantee it!

Low Carb and Keto Coconut Butter Breakfast Batter (for waffles and pancakes)
{low-carb, grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free, keto}

12 oz (1 cup) coconut butter
½ cup butter
8 oz cream cheese
6 large eggs
5 droppers full English Toffee Liquid Stevia
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 c Erythritol Sweetener

Preheat waffle iron (or non-stick skillet for pancakes*)

Melt the coconut butter (blended coconut, NOT coconut milk or cream, I use homemade but it is sold as coconut manna or coconut butter), butter and cream cheese. Stir until smooth. Blend remaining ingredients into coconut butter mixture. I used a vitamix, but as long as everything is melted, a hand mixer or regular blender should work fine.

Bake in your waffle iron or skillet. For waffles, allow to continue cooking for a few minutes past when the machine tells you they are done. Remove carefully and allow to cool for a few minutes, as they do crisp up a teeny-tiny bit. For pancakes, make sure your pan is hot…then a couple minutes per side is sufficient. When you flip them, push them down a little bit to ensure the bottom touches.

I like them dry. They taste like they are syrup drenched…my 3 year old, however, is a bit obsessed with maple syrup and enjoyed them like that 🙂 A sugar free syrup might make them a bit too sweet, and I would omit the erythritol if I was planning on using a syrup or topping.

PS I plan on tinkering with this recipe to see if I can make it crisp up a bit. 🙂

PPS I don’t get paid to keep this blog. I have added some affiliate links to Amazon to products that I personally buy and use from Amazon, in case you have difficulty sourcing some of the specialty ingredients that make living a low-carb, keto or gluten free lifestyle easier. I may receive a small percentage of compensation from Amazon, should you access these links in my ingredient lists and purchase the items I recommend. This costs you nothing, and typically I have found the cheapest options. If you like what you see here, please feel free to support me at no additional cost by shopping my links or in my Amazon Store (still being built). Thanks!
