 These Keto waffles are for those family members of mine that are fans of the Keto diet – you know who you are. These low carb waffles use almond flour and sweetener and actually passed the Mr Magpie test! He ate them and enjoyed them.  I only have Splenda to use in mine as I don’t get full bore into the Keto diet and use the other sweeteners that you have to source out. Do you or someone you know eat Keto based? Make sure to send them this recipe!

Light & Fluffy Keto Waffles

Keto waffles doesn’t necessarily mean dense and thick. Yes, I am not going to pretend that the texture of these waffles is the same as normal flour ones, let’s not kid ourselves here. However these waffles are a good texture, they are not doorstop thick and they were an enjoyable breakfast. The secret is also the spices – there is nothing like mixing together those pumpkin pie spices to bring life to a meal.

We ate them with butter on top, but if you have a low carb syrup that you want to use, then that would be awesome on these! I just don’t have sugar-free syrups hanging around the house, but I do know that they are out there.

The NET carbs on these are 2 per waffle, which is a really low carb way to start your day! Add on butter for extra fat if needed to suit your macros.

Keto Waffles Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure to beat those egg whites! While you do mix them in and you DO lose fluffiness, that’s what the baking soda and powder are also there for. You are hedging your bets and using egg whites for added leavening and lift as well.
  • You can choose your choice of sweetener as this is a HIGHLY debated topic in the Keto community. Don’t bother leaving a comment telling me how Splenda is a bad choice or whatever when it comes to Keto – I have no interest in debating the merits of the different fake sugars. You do you – and what works for you on Keto!
  • Try this Keto Thick Maple Syrup recipe if you are looking for a homemade Keto syrup.
  • Want to BUY syrup? This maple flavoured sugar free syrup has amazing reviews!

Happy Keto cooking! You might see a few more recipes on here that are Keto in the coming weeks, but don’t worry, there’s cakes and cocktails coming as well!

Love,

Ingredients

Dry Mixture

  • 1/2 cup super fine almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp splenda or preferred sweetener

Wet Mixture

  • 2 eggs divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp melted butter

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

  2. Divide the eggs and place the yolks in one bowl and the whites into a medium sized bowl ( large enough to use a hand mixer to beat them in).  Mix together the egg yolks, vanilla and butter and set aside.

  3. Beat the egg whites until as light and fluffy as they can get ( the whites should form peaks when you life up the beaters).

  4. Mix the egg yolks mixture into the dry ingredients. ( it will be a dry mixture.) Then proceed to add in the eggs whites, slowly mixing them in until the mixture is fully combined. You will lose some lift, don't worry, just combine them in until the mixture is smooth. 

  5. Preheat your waffle iron and make 4 waffles. Serve with butter and a low sugar syrup if desired.

    I made these today, and they were both beautiful and delicious. Very fluffy, though not crunchy. I wonder if substituting coconut oil for the butter might add some crunchiness, as it can in baked goods. I’ll give it a go next time.

  2. Donna says

    Thank You for posting this recipe!!! Its Amazing!!!
    I’m not a fan of almond flour. I always grind my almond flour more for any recipe it really helps. I’ve tried several different recipes, this is my Favorite!!!
    The flavor was amazing I’ll be making these again❣

    • Michael Richardson says

      These waffles, after all the work, aren’t worth a toot compared to other recipes. Much better recipes out there.

    • Tera Martindale says

      Just made these for my kids and I they are exactly what the picture looks like. They are light fluffy crunchy around the edges this would be my new go to recipe. I did try butter and lanko syrup not sure if the lanko is worth the money. I do use butter cinnamon and granulated monk fruit as a topping. Thank you so much for your recipe

  3. Nissa says

    Gave it 4 stars because the waffles are delicious and light which is hard to find while on keto so kudos for a great recipe. However, they are not crispy at all. No matter how long you leave them in for or how long you let them cool. I was looking for a bit of a crispy edge soft inside keto waffle. What do you think could give it a crunch?

  4. Maureen says

    This made one waffle for me. What size of everyone’s waffle maker? I was hoping to have leftovers, oh well.

  5. Christopher says

    I’ve gotta tell you, these were legit! I’ve had some nasty inedible keto waffles in the past, and these were truly delicious. Thank you so much!

  6. Kati says

    Hi there! Please forgive me if this is a dumb question, but are the nutrition facts for the whole batch or for each waffle? I guess I mean, what us the serving size? Thanks!

  7. Kiesha says

    I am so glad I found this recipe! I have waisted so much keto ingredients on recipes that are not good at all but this recipe is top notch!
    I didn’t quite have a full half cup of almond flour so I topped up with coconut flour. Worked out perfectly!
    Thank you! From a keto newbie!

  8. Gena says

    These waffles are seriously amazing! I’m doing keto and decided to try my hand at a waffle recipe, and on a whim decided to look for cinnamon waffles, and I’m so glad I did! These are absolutely delicious and super fluffy. I did use a belgian waffle iron, half the mixture per waffle, and while it’s not a massive belgian-style waffle it’s definitely more than enough to fill you up. If you want them truly crispy, turn your waffle iron up to a higher setting and/or bake a little longer than you would normal waffles (about 6 mins for me).

  9. Delphine says

    I was worried coz it was hard to mix the 2 mixtures but they turned out very good! I just wanna comment that splenda is apparently very bad for your guy health so I’d suggest to use stevia or something else instead. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Jen says

      All fake sugar can be bad for your health, as real sugar. That’s why she says multiple times the choice is yours.

  10. Tatiana says

    These look and sound delicious, but I don’t have a waffle iron.. would this recipe work for pancakes? TIA! (:

  11. Andrea says

    These did not turn out at all for me at all ? I had to throw out the mix. Made one and it just stuck to the iron. The egg white did not mix properly with the other ingredients, there were still big lumps through the mix. The bits I picked off the waffle iron were very salty too. I can’t figure out how it went so wrong!

  12. Heidi says

    Absolutely delicious waffles! I am doing Keto and always on the lookout for seriously good Keto replacements for foods I love. I have tried a couple other Keto waffle recipes, and they were ok, but nothing fantastic like these. The changes I made to the recipe were taking out the nutmeg and cloves and only adding a little pinch of cinnamon. I used about 5 drops of liquid stevia for just a tiny bit of sweetness. I will definitely be making these again! Thanks for the recipe!

  13. Biff Tannen says

    The taste is on point, but these are definitely not crispy. You should change the name of the recipe. On to the next attempt at keto waffles!

  14. Bekah says

    This made one waffle for me. So do I double everything? 60 grams of fat? No wonder I was full all day!!

  15. Lindsay says

    Thank you so much for these, 2 years without waffles is far too long! Finally, an amazing waffle recipe I can have on Keto! This is definitely my new go-to recipe.

    • Karlynn Johnston says

      Thank you so much for commenting, I was SO waiting for someone on Keto to let me know how they are!! Glad you liked them!
