How To Make Keto Waffles
It's no secret that many of us here don't actually eat breakfast anymore. When your appetite is under control from low-carb living, then starting off the day with a creamy coffee is usually enough.
But most of our children just really, really love waffles. I keep these healthy waffle recipes for the weekend.
I like to cook for my family at the weekends with a long delicious breakfast! The recipe is simple, and everyone can help set the table while the keto waffles are cooking.

You just start by making the batter, folding in the egg whites, adding in the chocolate if you want to, and then cooking in your waffle maker.
That's literally it.

Best toppings for keto waffles
I like to place a scoop of sweetened whipped cream on the top of my pancakes and sprinkle them with sugar-free dark chocolate chips and roasted macadamia nuts. But there are so many other toppings for keto pancakes.
- Homemade keto maple syrup
- Whipped heavy cream
- Sugar-free chocolate chips
- Sugar-free berry chia jelly/jam
- Peanut butter
- Sugar-free "no-nutella"
Depending on your carb limit, you may be able to add a few low-sugar berries on top too.
Keto waffle tips and tricks
I love how versatile this low-carb recipe is. Vanilla and chocolate, all from the same recipe? Easy peasy, right?!
Can you freeze waffles? Yes. Remember how easy it can be to meal prep and prep for breakfast as well. Simply cook up the waffles, and freeze them in between sheets of baking paper/parchment in an airtight container.
Then, when you're wanting to serve waffles, you can just unthaw quickly and reheat. (and remember...waffles don't have to be just for breakfast...they're good for lunch and dinner, too!)
Do you have to use a waffle maker? No. You can use the waffle recipe in the frying pan and cook the batter as a traditional pancake.

How To Make Fluffy Keto Waffles
Do you know how you can tell that a waffle is good and delicious? Because it's light and fluffy and feels like it weighs nothing.
That type of consistency means that it's going to have a good crunch on the outside and be soft and fluffy on the inside...and that, my friends, is what you should be aiming for every time you cook these keto waffles.
By following the directions below, you'll get airy, light scrumptious waffles every single time.

Will this recipe work in a belgian waffle maker??? Thank You...
Yes, however, Belgian waffles tend to be a bit deeper and larger so you may need to adjust the cooking times and you may end up with fewer keto waffles.
Hi Libby - what size tablespoons do you use in your recipes? 20ml or 15ml?
Thanks - from Aussie who has recently discovered that the standard Australian size is different to the rest of the world!
I use a 15ml tablespoon, but to be honest, in most recipes accuracy of a tablespoon is not critical - yay!
Thank you for this. 3 weeks low carb and my kids suspect that I'm trying to kill them..hahaha. I do have one child allergic to coconut. How would this do with almond flour? And what would the measurements be coconut vs. Almond? I've gotten familiar with your site. Its giving me hope of duration wth this lifestyle change. Thanks again!
I'm pretty sure my kids had exactly the same thoughts when we transitioned to low-carb, luckily they survived too. As for this recipe, unfortunately, you cannot swap coconut flour directly for almond flour. They behave in completely different ways. You may wish to read this page - coconut flour vs almond flour. This page, has many low-carb pancake recipes, I'm sure you'll find some that are made with almond flour. And my low-carb kids page has plenty of tips too.
