Have you ever had a Pizzelle?

I’d never heard of them until recently. These traditional Italian wafers are light and crispy, flavoured with anise and dusted with powdered sweetener. And they are ultra thin, crispy and absolutely delicious!

To make these low-carb we used almond flour, psyllium powder and low-carb sweetener. This keto pizzeles recipe is based on our Low-Carb Cannoli and Keto Sugar Cones — have you tried these yet? They taste like the real deal!

If you're nut-free you can substitute the almond flour with an equivalent amount of ground sunflower seeds (2/3 cup). Flax meal is another option although you will need to use less (just about 1/2 cup). Instead of the coconut milk, you can use heavy whipping cream mixed with water (use 1/4 cup of each).

They would be a perfect holiday or hostess gift as they are just that little bit unusual. Enjoy!

This is truly amazing. I've been waiting for a LCHF pizzelle recipe that does NOT use cream cheese!!!! I'm Italian and these are a regular COOKIE in our pantry. My kids love them, I love them!!! This recipe makes 20 pizzelle. If I double or triple the recipe would it alter the taste, texture in any way. Can you provide me with the ingredients that will make at least 30+ pizzeelle. My family does not stop at 1, lol. Please and thank you!

Thank you so much Linda! You can double or triple the recipe and it won't change the texture or flavour. I would probably start by making a double batch only because it will take some time to do 40 pizzelles! You can do that by using double the amount of every ingredient listed. We plan to add this functionality in the near future so it will be easy for our readers to make multiple/or half batches.

That's great! Thank you for responding so quickly. I have the traditionally Italian pizzellee maker and it makes two at a time so it won't take too long. If I were to add some whey protein isolate to make these a little more denser, do you think that would work.

I believe it would! Adding some whey protein isolate can't do any damage. Quite the opposite. I'd still only use just 1/4 cup.

Thank you! I will definitely give that a try!
