Lupin flour waffles are my new fave.
Lupin flour is made from lupin beans. I’m adding it to my arsenal of keto flours for a few reasons. It’s not any cheaper than the others but the nutrition factor can’t be beat.
Lupin flour is high in protein and fiber and lower in calories than almond flour and coconut flour. It’s also only one net carb per serving where coconut flour can be as much as 4 net carbs per serving and almond flour is around 2 net carbs per serving.
The consistency is beautiful, it compares to the sturdiness of almond flour but a bit softer, making it great for waffles, keto bread and cakes. I’ll have to try it in cookies too to see the outcome.
So far, I like coconut flour for pancakes and cupcakes because it is very light in texture, almost too soft to make things like pizza dough. Lupin flour holds up much better while still being soft and fluffy, just like these ketogenic waffles.
This is the brand of lupin flour I’m using to make my waffles. I’m also using my cute new mini Dash Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker to make the cutest little waffles.
Lupin Flour Waffles with Cream Cheese Topping
This recipe is based on my Keto Wonder Bread Waffle Recipe. You’ll need the following ingredients for these delicious lupin flour waffles:
- lupin flour
- sour cream
- room temperature water
- baking powder
- cream cheese
- heavy cream
- keto sweetener
- berries to top with
If you’re making the cream cheese topping for the waffles, be sure to leave it out to get soft or zap it in the microwave first. I like to use my handheld blender to whip it all together because it can be quite the task to get cream cheese nice and smooth for your topping.
- 1 tbsp lupin flour
- 1 tbsp monk fruit sweetener
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1 tsp water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Cream cheese topping
- 1 tbsp softened cream cheese
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- 1/2 tbsp monk fruit sweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your waffle iron. I used this one.
Beat egg and mix in all other chaffle ingredients.
Cook your chaffle for 3 minutes or until there's no more steam escaping from the sides.
Meanwhile, whisk topping ingredients together thoroughly.
