THE BEST KETO WAFFLES
This keto waffle recipe is one of my favorite keto breakfast recipes to make on the weekend.
Now, you may be wondering what makes this recipe different from the rest. Well, the taste & texture these waffles have is what sets them apart. They turn out with an ideal balance between soft, crispy, and chewy, instead of being dry and eggy.
Then, if you top them off with my sugar free keto maple syrup, you'll set yourself up for the best breakfast you've had since you started eating low carb.
And you won't believe these low carb waffles have just 3 NET CARBS each - including putting on as much maple syrup as you want!
Plus, what I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make. All you have to do is blend up your ingredients and then let your waffle maker do the rest.
Another thing I love about this recipe is the simplicity of the ingredients. If you regularly make keto recipes, you'll have everything you need in your kitchen already.
Here is what we will be using:
- 2 Large Eggs
- 4 Tbsps Butter, Melted
- 1⁄3 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- 3⁄4 Cup Blanched Almond Flour
- 2 Tbsps Granulated Erythritol
- 1⁄2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- Pinch of Salt
So you can put all of your ingredients to good use and make those for breakfast next!
Oh, and this recipe will make 2 of the best keto waffles ever. So if you want more, just double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe!
KETO FLOURS TO USE & AVOID
Now let's get into a couple of the ingredients we will be using.
If you haven't put it together already, we will be making almond flour waffles. So, of course, almond flour is one of our main ingredients that will keep this recipe low carb.
But if you are allergic or want some other options, you can also use an equal amount of walnut flour or sunflower seed flour in place of the almond flour.
All of these flours above are low carb and will create light and fluffy waffle deliciousness.
With that said, you DO NOT want to use coconut flour as a substitute. It is a more absorbent flour and using it as your main flour to make these waffles will dry them out and make them too crumbly.
So stick with almond, walnut, or sunflower seed flour to make the best keto waffles.
KETO SWEETENERS TO USE
Ok, so I'm going to let you in on a little secret - something I add in this recipe to elevate the flavor of the waffles is Granular Swerve.
Granular Swerve is a 0 calorie, 0 carb sweetener that will add a lovely touch of sweetness to this recipe.
Now, another sweetener you can use that will do the same thing is Lakanto's Monkfruit Sweetener. It also has no calories or carbs with the same amount of sweetness as sugar.
HOW TO MAKE KETO WAFFLES
Now the moment you've been waiting for, making these waffles go from a thought to your plate.
All you need to get cooking is your ingredients, a waffle iron, blender, and the instructions below.
So let's get to it!
STEP 1: MAKING THE BATTER
First, take out your blender if you haven't already.
Then add in your wet ingredients first - the eggs, melted butter, almond milk, and vanilla extract.
Next, add all of your dry ingredients to the blender - the almond flour, granular swerve, baking powder, and salt.
Once all of your ingredients are in, blend everything on high for several minutes. And a pro tip here is the longer you blend your ingredients, the fluffier your waffles will be!
STEP 2: COOKING YOUR WAFFLES
Now, coat the top and bottom of your waffle iron with non-stick baking spray.
Next, add half of the batter to the waffle maker and cook until your waffle is fluffy and golden brown. Typically when steam stops coming out of the iron, the waffle should be done.
Then once it's cooked to perfection, use a fork to gently remove it from the iron and pour the remaining batter in the iron and repeat until all of your waffles are cooked!
Top them off with some butter and a drizzle of some sugar free syrup, and dig in to the best keto waffles!
STORING YOUR KETO WAFFLES
I don't know about you, but I grew up eating frozen waffles. I mean, I don't think there was anything better than popping a waffle in the toaster for a low carb breakfast.
And my favorite part about this recipe is you can freeze any waffles you don't eat! But these are so much better than frozen waffles from the store.
You can freeze them for up to 4 months! Just wait for your waffles to cool, put them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then transfer them to a freezer-safe bag once frozen.
To reheat, pop your waffles in the toaster oven for a hot-off-the-press experience. Or you could also put them in the microwave, but I definitely suggest using the toaster.
FAQS ABOUT THESE KETO WAFFLES
ARE THESE WAFFLES GLUTEN FREE?
Since we used almond flour instead of regular flour, yes, these are gluten-free!
CAN I HAVE MAPLE SYRUP ON KETO?
Typically, regular maple syrup has upwards of 50g of carbs per serving - so it definitely is not keto-friendly.
But luckily, I have a solution so you can use maple syrup for these waffles and other breakfast recipes. And the solution is making my keto maple syrup recipe! It is a sugar free syrup that has 0 NET CARBS per serving with the same texture as real maple syrup.
WHAT TO PUT ON KETO WAFFLES?
A wonderful part about waffles is they're a blank canvas waiting to get decorated.
Here are some things you can add to your waffles to make them even better:
- Mix some chocolate chips or blueberries in the batter before cooking.
- Put some fresh berries on top with a sprinkle of confectioners swerve.
- Spread peanut butter or almond butter on top.
- Put a little peanut butter and sugar-free jam on them for a PB&J waffle.
- Add butter or whipped cream on top.
- No matter what you put on your waffles, you have to pour maple syrup on them.
