Rich, chocolate-y low carb brownie batter poured onto a hot waffle iron. Top it all of with some sugar-free caramel sauce and you are in keto dessert heaven!
Make no mistake, my friends, these are not breakfast waffles. No, no, these beauties are pure dessert territory! Unless you are sometimes inclined to eat dessert for breakfast. Which I am – I am very much inclined to eat dessert for breakfast sometimes. I never did it before going on a low carb diet because that just seemed too unhealthy and indulgent. I was a good girl, I always tried to start my day right with a wholesome breakfast like toast with peanut butter and a piece of fruit. If only I knew back then what healthy really was. If only I had even the slightest clue what all those “healthy breakfasts” were doing to my blood sugar. I might as well have been eating dessert for breakfast.
But now I look at my low carb breakfast muffins and I look at my low carb dessert recipes and I realize there really isn’t all that much difference. The desserts might be a little sweeter and a little gooier, and tend a little more toward the chocolate variety. They might be a little fancier and have more layers, because they are dessert after all. But they are also sugar-free and grain-free and they won’t send your glucose into the stratosphere. In those respects, they are far healthier than many breakfast options.
As a general rule, I do try to keep my sweet treats as just that: treats. But rules are made to be broken, at least on occasion. So although I made these low carb Brownie Batter Waffles as dessert, I won’t lie. I did spread one with peanut butter one morning and eat it for breakfast. And I don’t regret it one little bit.
