Bavarian Cream Stuffed Waffles: Crepe Waffles or Stuffed Waffles?

Low carb Bavarian Cream Stuffed Waffles are an easy brunch dish with 3 net carbs that tastes rich and decadent. A slightly sweet, delicately almond flavored waffle mix batter is cooked on a waffle iron and then wrapped around Bavarian cream filling. To complete this recipe, add a dollop of whipped cream, or my personal favorite, a little sweetened sour cream. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon, a few tasty colorful fruit like a blueberry or strawberry and serve. Sorry, my low carb recipe doesn’t include a scoop of ice cream. But you can make this ala mode with keto ice cream, just make sure to adjust the nutrition values and watch your carbs.

Crepe waffles or Bavarian cream stuffed waffle recipe

Yes, these taste like a crepe waffle. Or is it really a Bavarian cream stuffed waffle? No matter what you call them, these are delicious ! For this recipe you’ll need: eggs, almond flour, baking powder, butter, clear stevia drops, monk fruit or other sugar free sweetener, almond extract, vanilla, non-stick pan spray, vanilla sugar free instant pudding, half and half cream, sour cream, cream cheese, and cinnamon for garnish.

I kinda stumbled onto this while trying to play with my waffle batter. This is the result of a low carb breakfast recipe I was working on. It wasn’t really working out the way I wanted it to. Which actually happens more than I’d like to admit ha ha. Ah the joys of creating and exploring when cooking.

Not surprisingly, I find that a lot of my recipes start out that way!

Waffle mix or waffle mix up?

For whatever reason, I was looking for a thick, crispy waffle that I could make low carb and I ended up with a designer crepe. Once I tasted it though I realized that this “designer crepe” wasn’t just pretty, the shallow design held filling inside while the soft texture allowed it to be rolled.

How much do you wanna bet that this is how the cronut started? Happy accidents right?

I think you could make these waffles ahead, roll and freeze them but to be honest I haven’t ever frozen them so I’m not sure how that would work. If you do try to freeze them, please let me know in the comments how they came out. My family loves the smell when I cook these crepe waffles and they don’t take long to make.

Crepe waffle or designer waffle?

This recipe makes two rolled waffles. It depends on how hungry you are whether that’s one or two servings. I was quite happy with just one waffle. Or crepe. Or crepe waffle.

Or whatever you want to call them. Or you can just call them delicious.

I don’t eat breakfast as a general rule. When I was growing up, that just wasn’t something we did. I’m one of those people that really does best by eating once a day. My metabolism overloads if it has to deal with food three times a day. Go figure. The one time that I do make an exception to the breakfast ban is if we’re eating out.

I love having breakfast or brunch out. A bowl of cereal or a couple of eggs isn’t worth the calories and the exertion of putting it together. I am all in when it comes to having someone serve me a stack of blueberry pancakes, or waffles, or Eggs Benedict… or whatever.

Perfect waffle for brunch

I know you may be thinking, low carb breakfast tends to be super boring. One can only eat so many eggs or so much bacon right? I fondly remember the days of a pancake covered in maple syrup. Thankfully these tastes crazy good and don’t have all the sugar.

Well, these Bavarian cream filled waffles (crepe waffle??) are probably not something you’re going to make on a daily basis but having the recipe for the weekends is going to make your tummy very, very happy.

Possible Fillings for Low Carb Stuffed Waffles

  • Use a different flavor of sugar free pudding – try white chocolate, chocolate, coconut, banana… whatever you can find.
  • Whip equal amounts of cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream until smooth. Blend in sweetener to taste.
  • A low carb or zero carb jelly would be delicious.
  • Faux fried apples would be good.
  • Peanut butter is good in anything. Just get one without added sugar.
  • Sugar free lemon curd with maybe some fresh blueberries.
  • This cheesecake filling.

You get the idea. There are just so many possible ways to make stuffed waffles! If you don’t want to make them as waffles just pour the batter into a pan and make like a crepe.
