These keto waffles are cooked to golden perfection, making them super light and fluffy on the inside but crispy on the outside. They are low in carbs, gluten-free, and easy to make. Only 3g net carbs each!
All my family members, including the little ones, love these coconut flour waffles and want me to make more of them.
You know how some kids love their sweet treats in the morning, breakfast being the best opportunity to enjoy it?
I am thinking of making keto savory waffles to have for breakfast with bacon, eggs, and veggies. Just leave out the sweetener, add spices and top it with cheese and enjoy a special keto breakfast!
We are traveling, and we found an iron waffle maker in our AirBnB. I instantly wanted to make a special breakfast because when traveling, I like to keep things simple and enjoy low carb foods such as eggs, meats, vegetables, and cheese.
I had this idea of making coconut flour waffles for a long time now, and I went to the nearest store and bought all the ingredients. It’s incredible how you can find low carb flours in almost any food store.
My favorite keto coconut flour pancakes were also a great option, but why not try something new and delicious? We bought all the ingredients we needed to make this recipe!
I love traveling as much as I love cooking, and enjoying this low carb breakfast on my vacation made everything perfect.
Reasons This Recipe Works
- Low Carbs: Coconut flour is a great alternative for regular wheat flour in keto pancakes. It is low in carbs and high in fiber, affordable, and easy to use.
- Gluten-Free: Coconut flour pancakes are naturally gluten-free, making them an excellent option for those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
- Healthy Fats: Loaded with healthy fats, these grain-free waffles are super filling.
- Delicious Flavor and Texture: Coconut flour adds a light, sweet and nutty flavor to the pancakes that make an excellent keto breakfast.
Coconut Flour Waffles Ingredients
These grain-free waffles are made with coconut flour instead of wheat flour, keto-approved sweetener instead of sugar, and full-fat cream cheese.
The best part is that all the ingredients are easy to find, and you may already have them in your kitchen:
- Eggs – a staple ingredient in my recipes that works as a binding agent. Use room temperature large eggs to remove that eggy taste.
- Cream cheese – use softened cream cheese to add richness and creaminess.
- Unsalted butter – for that specific buttery flavor!
- Coconut flour – a low carb and gluten-free alternative to regular wheat flour. Don’t replace it with almond flour! Instead, you can make my almond flour pancakes recipe!
- Coconut milk – a dairy-free alternative to milk. Choose your favorite unsweetened plant-based milk, such as almond milk or cashew milk.
- Vanilla extract – adds a sweet and aromatic subtle flavor.
- Sweetener – use your favorite sweeteners, such as Erythritol, Monk Fruit, or coconut sugar if paleo.
- Baking powder – helps the pancakes rise and makes them airy and fluffy.
TIP: Adding high-quality vanilla extract and plenty of cinnamon really hits the spot, boosts the sweetness and cuts the aftertaste of most sweeteners.
Keep in mind that we don’t add any sugar, wheat flour, and yet the waffles are perfect.
Probably one of the most amazing recipes I have ever shared with you. I know I’m probably exaggerating, but I am thrilled, and I will buy myself a waffle maker.
Update 2: I recently made an exciting kitchen upgrade and purchased the best waffle iron to easily make delicious fluffy waffles at home. It’s the perfect tool for both sweet, or savory waffles.
How to Make Low Carb Keto Waffles?
Making keto waffles couldn’t be any easier. Let me show you how to make perfect fluffy low carb waffles:
- Beat the egg until fluffy, then mix in the melted butter, milk, sweetener, vanilla extract, cinnamon.
- Add cream cheese, coconut flour, baking powder and keep mixing until well incorporated.
- Allow the batter to sit for at least 5 minutes or until it gets thicker. The coconut flour will absorb tons of liquids.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the hot waffle maker to cook for 2-3 minutes.
PRO TIP: Throw all the ingredients in a high-power blender and in pulse for about 30 seconds or until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
What about adding lemon juice and poppy seeds? That sounds incredibly delicious and will definitely be as good as my super easy 1 Minute Lemon Poppy Seed Keto Mug Cake.
Tips For The Best Keto Waffles
- Gradually add the liquid ingredients – To prevent the batter from becoming too thick, gradually add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing well after each addition.
- Let the batter rest – Allowing the batter to rest for a few minutes before cooking can help the coconut flour absorb more moisture and improve the texture of the batter.
- Don’t overcook – Coconut flour waffles may take longer to cook than traditional waffles, so be patient and cook them until they are golden brown on both sides.
- Serve with a keto-friendly syrup or toppings – To keep the waffles keto-friendly, serve them with a sugar-free syrup or toppings such as homemade whipped cream, fresh berries, or your favorite nut butter.
- Experiment with flavors – Feel free to add in real vanilla extract, cinnamon, or other spices to enhance the flavor of the waffles.
How to Serve Coconut Flour Keto Waffles?
There are many things you can serve with your waffles, so don’t limit yourself to thinking they’re only good for breakfast. Depending on the toppings, they can be either sweet or savory, incredibly indulgent or healthy.
Once you figure out the best way to serve them, make easy keto waffles ahead of time and freeze them for a ready-to-go treat anytime.
This recipe makes perfect classic waffles that can be customized to your liking. However, swapping ingredients can be tricky, so I recommend playing it safe and adding in ingredients such as chocolate chips or berries.
Toppings are also an important aspect to consider. My favorite way to serve keto Belgian waffles is with sugar-free maple syrup, berries, whipped heavy cream, and mascarpone cheese. They can also be served plain, warm, and topped with grass-fed butter, along with a cup of unsweetened bulletproof coffee or tea. Does that sound good?
I love having keto waffles for breakfast, and here are some of my favorite keto-friendly suggestions for serving waffles:
- Fresh Berries – Fresh or frozen berries such as strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries are my favorite.
- Whipped cream
- Nut Butter – spread a dollop of almond or peanut butter on top.
- Sugar-Free Chia Jam – my easy chia jam is the perfect topping for waffles.
- Sugar-free chocolate chips
- Keto Caramel Sauce – Generously drizzle my sugar-free caramel sauce over the waffles for a sweet and sticky topping.
- Mascarpone cheese – add a thin layer of mascarpone cheese for extra creaminess
- Sliced Almonds – top the waffles with a few sliced almonds for a crunchy texture.
How to Store Low Carb Waffles Recipe?
First, allow the waffles to cool completely before storing them to prevent condensation and a soggy texture.
Then, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
- Refrigerator – Place the leftover keto waffles in an airtight container or plastic bag and store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
- Freezer– Place them in a freezer-safe bag or container and store them for up to 3 months.
- Reheating– Reheat the waffles in the waffle maker or place them in a preheated oven to 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until heated.
