These were so much fun to make with munchkin as a cool Valentine’s Day treat! You’ve gotta try this Keto Red Velvet Waffle Whoopie Pie with your kids or even for your sweetheart who has a sweet tooth.
I’ve tried several variations when developing this keto waffle recipe because I wanted it to come out tasty and true to color. I wanted that deep red color of a true red velvet cake. Then I added spices to give it its own unique flavor.
If you’re lost and not sure how to get started with the keto diet, this meal plan is for you. It’s a fool-proof guide to winning at the high-fat, low-carb lifestyle.
Tips to Make the Best Keto Red Velvet Waffle
The spices carry through the cream cheese filling for an incredible keto treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Top these with a drizzle of keto chocolate syrup and some keto candied pecans for an even more satisfying treat.
You could also use keto chocolate protein powder instead of sugar-free cocoa powder used in this keto red velvet waffle recipe to help you meet your protein and fat macros while chowing down on chocolatey goodness.
If you’re just starting the keto diet, a food journal specifically for keto like this one can help you to stay on track. Track your meals, macros, mood, fasting times and movement daily to spot helpful and harmful patterns that help you achieve your weight loss and health goals.
This recipe will make 2 Belgian waffles or 4-5 mini waffles if you’re using the Dash Mini Waffle Maker. With 2 large Belgian waffles, you’ll end up with 4 keto whoopie pies which come in at 2.9 net carbs per pie. Not bad for quite a filling and delicious keto dessert. I use cream cheese in this recipe which is always easier to handle softened or using an immersion blender to get it fully incorporated with all the other ingredients.
