Lupin Flour Waffles with Cream Cheese Topping

Pinterest Hidden Image

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, whereas 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’s similar 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 and 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
  • egg
  • 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 a task to get cream cheese nice and smooth for your topping.

  1. I’m going to try this! I loved your recipe for salmon fritters with aioli sauce. The sauce was just right! I made my fritters with shredded okra, and shredded white onion though, since I grew okra this year and have a whole lot of it frozen.

    I’ve been reading about “cycling ketogenic,” 6 days on keto, 1 day on carbs, intermittent fasting, exercise. Whole idea is to make your mitochondria “flex.” I want flexible mitochondria!

    Anyway, I think this on and off keto is really a good idea.

    1. yes, cycling on and off works wonders for me!
