Low Carb Waffles!
We’re currently in Florence, Italy, and while it’s a little hard to stay low carb, we’re doing just fine :). One of the ways we’re sticking to our keto diet is cooking at home as much as we can. That means most breakfasts and lunches are made right at home. We have an adorable apartment we found on Airbnb with a great kitchen and a beautiful view. Have you ever used Airbnb? It’s a great tool for finding short- to long-term rentals (from as little as a day or two to a few months). It’s much cheaper than staying at a hotel and has the added benefit of a full kitchen. You can save $35 on your first trip by using this link to sign up :D.
While in Italy, we love having our tried-and-true Scrambled Eggs for breakfast with pancetta, buffala mozzarella and avocado. For lunch, we usually have some of Italy’s amazing pork or wild board sausages with a fresh salad with lots of olive oil and feta cheese. Yes, we’ve also had the occasional gelato, but not too often! Needless to say, we’re eating quite well over on this side of the pond.
Make sure to follow us on Instagram where we post some of the tastiest stuff we’ve been enjoying in Italy!

After a few longs months of prep, testing, writing and shooting, we’re so excited to announce the launch of our second ecookbook – Breakfast in Five! It’s part of our “in Five” series in which we create, cook and shoot 30 recipes for each course of the day that are all 5 grams of net carbs or fewer using only 5 ingredients! It’s been challenging but rewarding work. With so much positive feedback from Dinner in Five, we decided to continue the trend and create 30 low carb breakfast recipes to follow suit.
Breakfast in Five features time-saving recipes like pancakes, shakes, cereals, muffins, breakfast bars and more, as well as more indulgent, Sunday-worth breakfasts like souffles, hash browns, sandwiches and waffles. Speaking of waffles, we were so surprised we managed to make edible waffles with only 5 ingredients, we made them the star of the show. You can find them on the cover of Breakfast in Five as well as the subject of this delicious blog post.
We’re sharing our 5-ingredient Keto Chocolate Chip Waffles recipe with you along with the official announcement of the launch of Breakfast in Five. You can read all about how much everyone loves Dinner in Five here! All of our “in Five” ecookbook recipes can be made using only 5 ingredients. And since each one is 5 grams of net carbs or fewer, anyone can easily enjoy them without breaking their carb limit.

Keto recipes without bacon and maple flavouring are hard to find. With the Ketogenic diet I’m only having trouble with breakfast. I’ve never teally liked eggs and, much to the horror of my friends, can’t stand the smell of bacon. A cereal/oatmeal girl up to now. Thanks for the waffle and muffin recipes. Whipped cream cheese is a good topper too
You’re very welcome, Alice 🙂
Tastes great, but you need to get used to it. Be warned, VERY filling. Second day of keto and I am not consuming ev erything left and right, mainly because this recipe is incredible dense. Very well put together. 1 small kink, it is very difficult to swallow, take small bites and drink some sort of beverage while you are eating. Thanks!
Make sure you beat your egg whites well enough! That will really help the texture of the waffles be airy. Also, we recommend enjoying them with lots of butter and pancake syrup which adds a lot of moisture.
That’s my favorite type of breakfast!
These waffles look so good! Love that they are so high in protein! Congrats on the launching of your e-book!
Thank you so much, Bethany! We always appreciate your kind words <3
