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!
