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
Like I said, all keto staples. And I use all of these ingredients to make some more classic keto breakfast recipes like my keto coffee cake and 1-minute keto pancakes. So you can put all of your ingredients to good use and make those for breakfast next!
By the way, another really, really tasty keto breakfast recipe to make yourself is this keto overnight oats recipe. It takes just minutes to prep, and it turns out so good - especially if you pair it with one of these low calorie coffee drinks.
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!
Oh, by the way, this recipe will make 2 of the best keto waffles ever. So if you want more, just double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe!
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.

These are my hands down favorite waffle recipe! Even my non keto partner loves them! I thinking I've had them for breakfast everyday for the last 2 weeks, love it! So fluffy and light and delicious
The Diet Chef says
One of the best breakfast recipes you’ve posted.
These were AWESOME!
Just tried this recipe. Very tasty, I'll definitely be adding it to my breakfast rotation. Thanks!
So yummy! I added 1 tsp each of cinnamon and ginger, 1/2 tsp each of nutmeg, cloves, and allspice and made them into Gingerbread Waffles for Christmas. Beyond good!!!
Krystal R says
I made these today, trippled the recipe... added an extra tsp. of vanilla and some cinnamon and they are amazing....A trippled recipe will make 16 mini waffles.
Thank you as always for an awesome recipe.
Soooooooo good but not crispy.
I agree, however I separated the eggs, whipped the whites and folded them in before cooking. Nice and crispy.
Best keto waffles I have ever had! I used cream instead of milk. OMG! Awesome!
Arianna McCann says
First Keto waffles I have ever made, and they came out great! Super easy recipe with readily available ingredients, perfect texture, and great flavor.
The best keto waffle recipe and so easy. Will look for more recipe from you. Thank You!
Cindy Siegel says
Choose this recipe when I ran out of Birch Benders mix and liked the idea of using the blender vs the mixer. Will never go back to the mix. This was the best keto waffle I have had and I have been cooking keto for 4 years. Blend until you don't see almond flour grains. So good!
Cindy J says
I subbed caramel extract for the vanilla when I made these. They are soooo good!
Best keto waffle recipe I have tried
I made these keto waffles and they came out delicious, I used heavy whipping cream instead of the almond milk and I wonder if that was the reason why mine didn't come out crispy. However, they still came out delicious.
LOVED THESE!! EXTRA FUN: "Dash" mini special shaped waffle makers can make this even more fun! I was able to make 10 heart shaped waffles with this recipe. Which means I can eat 5 as a serving!!! Whewhoo! YUMMY!!
These are the absolute best low-carb waffles out there.
jossette moon says
Wow! I've been on Keto for years and have tried many recipes! Not sure if it's because I whipped the heck out of the batter or what but these are by far the best I've ever made!! Thanks for sharing!! I've shared it to all my keto friends as well! 🤩 My new go to!!! Will be trying more of your recipes!! 😁
The Diet Chef says
Awe glad to hear it.
Espresso Sharmz says
Absolutely loved this waffle!
Very good ! I will make this my go-to waffle recipe!
The waffles great! I added a little cinnamon and crumbled bacon to the batter. I served topped with blueberries Lakanto syrup. Excellent flavor and crispy.
Yay!!!! These are delicious and I can use my Mickey Mouse waffle maker! Thank you
The Diet Chef says
I had to use regular milk (I know, not really keto, but we don't like almond milk) and they still came out great even though they were not crispy. My husband said, "please make these again". I may try heavy cream next time.
Very good 👍 My husband even said this was a keeper recipe.
So glad you liked the recipe! :)
Joshua Drennon says
