There are so many new keto products on the market, it’s hard to keep up! Today, I’m posting a Birch Benders Waffle Review for both their frozen Keto Toaster Waffles as well as waffles made with their Keto Pancake and Waffle Mix.

I’ve always been a fan of Birch Benders cake cups as well as their keto pancake and waffle mix for pancakes (I hadn’t made waffles with it until today) – and I’ve been seeing their frozen keto toaster waffles in the freezer sections at my local supermarkets, but never really tried them since I have mix in my pantry and it’s easy to mix up and make fresh waffles in my Dash waffle maker.

However I decided to pick up the frozen waffles the other day to test the frozen variety against the waffle mix to find out which was the better waffle. While a basic chaffle recipe is an easy keto waffle option that creates a great waffle to pair with a low carb syrup or base for sandwiches, I wanted to try the Birch Benders Keto Waffle & Pancake mix specifically to see if it resulted in a better breakfast waffle.

Birch Benders Frozen Keto Toaster Waffles Review

Birch Benders Keto Frozen Toaster WafflesWith only 6g of net carbs in two waffles, the Birch Benders Frozen Keto Toaster Waffles only have 1g of net carbs more than the mix. However, once I popped them out of the freezer and opened the box, I could already tell they were going to be like eating air. They were thin and very light – and were already crumbly before they even made it to the toaster. While the ingredients between the frozen version and the mix are somewhat similar, the frozen waffle doesn’t have almond flour whereas the mix has both almond and coconut flours, which are ideal for any baked recipes.

So, I popped two frozen waffles in the toaster and poured a bit of my favorite keto maple syrup alternative from ChocZero over them. They basically disintegrated. The flavor is great but the texture way to flimsy and crumbly. These might be a good option to spread with nut butter – one of my pre-keto on the go meals was to toast up a flax waffle and spread almond butter on it. However if you want a satisfying waffles and syrup experience, these frozen toaster waffles aren’t going to do it for you.

Birch Benders Keto Pancake & Waffle Mix Review

Birch Benders Keto Pancake & Waffle MixI love this mix for pancakes – to make waffles you add a tablespoon of coconut oil (yay, healthy fats!) to the mix with water to make the waffle batter before cooking them on your waffle iron. These are 100 times better than the frozen variety in my opinion. They are fluffy, sturdy and soak up syrup just like you would want them to.

The coconut oil really helps with the consistency as well – I’ll be adding coconut oil to the mix when making pancakes as well…I’m not sure why they don’t recommend adding coconut oil when making pancakes with the mix, but hands down, this is the best waffle (or pancake mix, for that matter) that I’ve tried yet…and I’ve tried a lot!

So, the verdict? If you have a few extra minutes, the Birch Benders Keto Pancake and Waffle Mix is the way to go for a better low carb waffle. The frozen toaster waffle isn’t inedible, however I think you’re better off making a batch of waffles using the mix and storing them in the freezer when you need something quick. What I love about Birch Benders in general, is that they use really solid, good ingredients vs random fillers and ingredients that could blur the keto lines.
