By Editorial Team
19 Comments

Breakfast: it’s perhaps the menu with the most stumbling blocks for those living low-carb. Eggs are great, but—let’s face it—get old without some variety. At times we may find ourselves missing the traditional breakfast classics we might have enjoyed at one point—even when we know they don’t fit our current health goals.

But who said keto was about deprivation? Not us, for sure. With a huge array of keto-friendly classic recipes, we’re hell-bent on showing the world just how great keto eating can be—with real food, full flavor and no compromises. So, back to breakfast now…. We dare you to bring this savory keto waffle breakfast sandwich to work—and see just how many people you convert.

Enjoy—and be sure to check out this week’s giveaway with our friends at Birch Benders (below)!

  • 3/4 cup Birch Benders Keto Pancake and Waffle Mix
  • 1/2 water

Instructions:

Mix Birch Benders Keto Pancake and Waffle Mix with water and coconut oil according to package instructions.

  1. My god those look good. Gonna stop at grocer on way home from gym and fire up the stove.

  2. Hi! This looks delightful, I have eaten ketoand organic paleo for the majority of my life since a type 1 diabetes diagnosis at age 9. I quickly figured out all my well-intentioned doctors were not equipped to help me in the food department, (my mom still laughs about trying to figure out what the hell “club crackers” were) so I did it on my own. 🙂

    I’ve never tried to make low-carb subs for anything but maybe now’s the time!

    My most useful “recipes” are blueprints to get the chef started down the path for the meal from an intuitive place. Such as:
    Salad dressing
    Olive oil (fat, or lipid if you prefer)
    Lemon juice and sherry vinegar (acid)
    Lemon zest, rosemary, crushed garlic, and a FISTFUL of minced parsley (buzz the parsley and rosemary with the oil to make life easier.)

    Substitute anything you fancy in any of the categories to make any dressing under the sun!

    Tips
    Mustard, mayo, and avocado add a creaminess, mustard is special though.
    Herbs are magical friends that love to dance for you! Use their flowers as well.
    Steamed or blanched radishes make a great substitute in potato salads. 🙂
    Don’t forget about fennel. 🙂

  3. Looks great , but man I try to avoid kitchen unitaskers.

    1. Same here, especially now that I have approximately one square foot of counter space! I haven’t tried it, but I would imagine that a pancake would be slightly less structurally sound but would still work (a la McDonald’s McGriddles, which I’ve never tried but they look like pancakes, I think?) as the outside of the sandwich.

    1. Steven, have you ever heard of the saying “if you cannot say something nice, don’t say it at all? “ This recipe looks amazing and I made it through four rounds of Master Chef with a VIP tryout. How about thinking a little more positive and put out compliments instead of the ugly comment you made here. Negative attracts negative. Positive attracts positive. Try some more positive in your life in every day. You may be surprised how much your life changes.

      1. You are so right Michelle. You keep up the great work!! Haters will be haters. Xo

  4. I tried the paleo version of the mix and did not like the stevia aftertaste. These don’t look like they have any stevia though, and these sandwiches looks delicious! I will definitely give it a try, thanks for the recipe!

    1. Melody, thanks for your question. The collagen bars themselves have 14-15 grams of carbs – not something that alone will kick you out of ketosis but maybe not as low as many keto folks would want for a regular snack. The Primal Kitchen protein bars have 9 grams of carbs each for comparison. Best — M

  5. I have used the Paleo version of birch benders – I even made 2 square pancakes then put them in the toaster to have with my eggs the next morning. Worked just fine and was delish! I’m looking forward to trying the keto blend.

  6. You area one in a million your recipes are always for everyone no exceptions. you inspire other health and beauty advocates like my self thanks again.

  7. Anything to substitute for the pancake and waffle mix? I’m based in the UK so they don’t have that food product here.

  8. Went out and purchased a pack of Birch Benders. I made the breakfast sandwich the next morning. My eggs, bacon, and cheese were deleicious. The waffle part, not so much. I stayed together but had zero taste.

  9. Was disappointed to see they contain wheat fiber. Surprised to see Mark endorsing suh a product. I’ll try to make my own grain free version.

    1. Primal1234, there’s no wheat fiber in the keto mix. They may in some of their other mixes, but not in this one.
