Pinterest Hidden Image

Lupin flour has made it into my weekly rotation as a keto staple. I get nervous when my keto pantry runs out of this incredible, almost zero-carb flour because I use it in just about everything now!

Here are some of my favorite lupin flour recipes that I have made on this blog. I’ll break it down into sweet and savory so you can find your favorite dessert, pizza crust, or side dish. But before we get into that… is lupin keto? Let’s get into what lupin flour is made from.

What is Lupin?

Lupin is a bean that’s more common as a snack food in the Mediterranean. It’s a legume that puts it in the peanut family, so you’ll want to do your research to see if you will be affected by any allergies.

Is Lupin Flour Keto Friendly?

Lupin flour is very keto-friendly. This is because there is only one net carb per serving of lupin flour, which is typically 1/4 cup.

There are 12 grams of total carbs in 1/4 cup of lupin flour, but much of this is fiber, 11 grams to be exact. Therefore 11 g of those total carbs will not be absorbed by your body.

More amazingly, there’s also 12g of protein in 1/4 cup of lupin flour, making it ideal for those of us struggling to meet our protein macros daily.

Lupin flour is gaining popularity in the Western world because of its high fiber and high protein composition, making it an excellent choice for low-carb or gluten-free dieters to bake with.

What’s the best lupin flour brand?

Having gone through bags and bags of this stuff to make all the things, I can confidently say that the best brand of lupin flour on the market right now is Lupina Lupin Flour. In my humble opinion, that is.

Some others have a slightly bitter taste, which should be fine if you intend to mix the flour with almond flour or coconut flour. This is a good idea to cut the carbs of these other flours and increase the protein. But if you’re using straight lupin like I do sometimes, go for the Lupina.

Sweet Lupin Flour Recipes

You can use lupin flour to make anything sweet or savory. We’re going to start with a few lupin flour recipes that are sweet and absolutely drool-worthy.

Lupin Flour Chaffles

Perhaps my favorite way to use lupin flour in a recipe is to make chaffles. Lupin flour chaffles are just amazing! Non-keto people will love these chaffles too. They’re in the middle of the softness spectrum, where almond flour waffles are a little dense, and coconut flour waffles are soft and break apart easily.

I’ve fallen in love with lupin flour waffles so much that I have my own premade keto chaffle and pancake mix so that I can whip up a batch at my convenience. If you prefer a crispier batter, try making your chaffles without any sweetener. I’ve heard that the sweetener can soften the finished product, but I haven’t tried this hack yet.

The slight sweetness of the Lupina lupin flour, plus the cinnamon and the keto maple-flavored syrup, will add enough sweetness when you’re ready to dig in. Try lupin flours in these chocolate waffles for a delightful low-carb treat!

Lupin Flour Pancakes
