How To Make Crispy Keto Waffles

Ingredients You’ll Need

I got my waffle maker for my birthday a few years back and didn’t use it for a while as I couldn’t imagine that there was a way to make gluten-free keto waffles with no flour.

waffles with almond flour ingredients

Here are the simple ingredients you’ll need for delicious waffles: 

  • Eggs – you will need room-temperature eggs to avoid an eggy smell and flavor.
  • Cream Cheese – use softened cream cheese to avoid creating any lumps.
  • Almond Flour – this is one of my best low-carb flour alternatives that I use for many dessert recipes. You can sift it before adding it to the batter to obtain a smoother texture.
  • Butter – use unsalted butter.
  • Sweetener – you can use your favorite low-carb sweetener such as Erythritol, Swerve, Monk Fruit, or coconut sugar if paleo.
  • Vanilla extract – Use plenty as it adds a nice flavor.
  • Baking Powder – helps the waffles become super fluffy.

These sugar-free waffles will become your favorite breakfast option once you see how easy they are to prepare. Here is everything you need to do:

Make The Keto Waffles Batter

In a large mixing bowl, add 4 large eggs and vanilla extract. Mix using and electric mixer until frothy for about 1-2 minutes.

Incorporate the cream cheese and continue mixing.

Add the dry ingredients and mix until you get a smooth waffle batter. Let it rest for a few minutes.

Cooking the Waffles

Meanwhile, heat your waffle iron and grease it well.

Pour enough batter and cook according to your waffle maker instructions, for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. I use about 1/4 cup of the prepared batter for each keto waffle.

Cook until golden brown on the edges and repeat until you have no batter left.

Variations For These Waffles with Almond Flour 

This recipe is a classic one that can be customized in many ways. Here are some great ideas:

  • Sugar-free chocolate chips – are one of my favorite add-in ideas.
  • Blueberry keto waffles – perfect for summer.
  • Toasted walnuts or almonds – for a crunchy texture.
  • Lemon zest 
  • Chocolate powder – for chocolate lovers and not only.
  • Coffee
  • Cinnamon – perfect for the holiday season.
  • Pumpkin puree – great for a Thanksgiving breakfast. 

Allergy Swaps and Substitutions

The best part of these waffles is they’re super easy to customize for your custom dietary needs with ingredients you have in your pantry.

  • Make egg-free keto waffles. Use your favorite egg substitutes such as chia egg or flax egg.
  • Make it dairy-free. Replace the cream cheese and butter with coconut cream and coconut oil, or use vegan replacements.
  • Can’t have almond flour? Use 1/4 coconut flour instead!

Storing Ideas

This low-carb waffle recipe makes about 6 waffles that are perfect to have on hand during the week. You can double or triple the ingredients if you prefer to make more and store them.

  • Fridge: let the waffles cool and store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week. 
  • Freezer: They also freeze well, and I was surprised to see that they freezer-friendly. So I pop them back into the waffle maker to get the best crispy keto waffles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make Coconut Flour Keto Waffles?

If you’re wondering how to make nut-free keto waffles with coconut flour instead of almond flour, learn it’s possible. 

In this recipe, the ratio of 1:4 (almond flour to coconut flour) works perfectly. This means you can replace almond flour with 1/4 cup of coconut flour. The instructions remain the same, and I recommend you let the batter rest for at least 5 minutes to allow the batter to thicken as the coconut flour soaks in the liquids. 

Do I Need To Grease The Waffle Maker?

This step is unnecessary, but if you are worried about this, spray the waffles iron with coconut oil before cooking them.

Is it 2 net carbs per waffle?

Joanna March 30, 2021 - 3:27 pm

Yes, each of these coconut flour keto waffles is 2g net carbs!

Ashley January 10, 2021 - 1:49 am

Hi I was wondering what the serving is for these waffles?

Joanna March 30, 2021 - 3:26 pm

This recipe makes 6 waffles and the macros are calculated for one keto waffle. You can eat one or two depending on your goals.

Fluffy Keto Waffles … what a beautiful recipe. These made a very happy breakfast! This is my keepsake… Thank You.

Joanna March 30, 2021 - 3:25 pm

So happy you liked the recipe!

Melody February 16, 2021 - 10:29 pm

Can you explain how you got your net carbs count?
My recipe wound up making 5 waffles as my maker is bigger so I used about 3/4 cup batter in each. I keep trying to figure net carbs and no way can I get a low count like you state.

Joanna March 30, 2021 - 3:24 pm

I use myfitnesspal to calculate the macros. I input the ingredients and then divide by how many servings I have and they give me all the nutritional facts.

Elizabeth February 20, 2021 - 2:57 pm

Please proofread and edit this recipe. You mentioned coconut cream in the instructions, but it’s not listed as an option in the ingredients. You list melted butter and vanilla in the list of ingredients but nowhere in the instructions does it tell the reader when to add them in. I added them at the same time as the cream cheese, but only because the recipe offered no guidance. I have been systematically making keto waffle recipes from Pinterest and these are good waffles. I just think that you should correct the recipe with the full instructions for people who may not be that experienced in the kitchen. Again, the end result was tasty.

Joanna March 30, 2021 - 3:20 pm

Thank you so much for your input. I just cleared the ingredients and instructions.

These are simply the best I have found — I think I could serve these to civilians and they’d not immediately identify them as keto, but simply as a really good waffle recipe. Thank you so much!

Nur from Singapore April 25, 2021 - 7:50 am

The best keto waffle recipe I have tried! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!

These are my favorite keto waffles. I LOVE lemon so I like to add the zest of one lemon 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice and a few drops of Sweet Leaf Lemon Drop flavoring. I dust my waffle after baking with a bit of Swerve powered sugar and top with a half tablespoon of blueberries. So yummy! I also use my mini dash waffle maker and get 12 waffles. For me and my diabetic keto journey one waffle from the mini dash is a perfect serving size. FYI blueberries are allowed but only in moderation especially if you are diabetic so be sure and measure/weigh the amount and never just guess

I made these today and they are by far the best tasting waffles I’ve had since being on Low Carb – they hold their shape and are delicious – Thank you so much!!

Excellent waffles. Made them for the first time today. Topped with a little more softened cream cheese and strawberries. My non-Keto husband ate some with syrup and loved them too. Thank you. ?

These were really good! Made them this morning with my mini waffle maker (used for the first time) so I was crossing my fingers. They turned out GREAT! With butter and sugar free Log Cabin (only 1 net carb for 1/4 cup) we were happy campers.

I have never fixed waffles before, so I bought a mini maker. This is my second go round, and they were just as good. The ingredients are perfect,( I use almond flour). AND my husband likes it also. Can you adjust for pancakes?

This is the BEST keto waffle recipe I have used! The texture is perfect. I did read another comment of letting the batter sit for a bit (using almond flour), so I let mine rest for about 10-15 min, perfectly fluffy + crispy. I was also worried these might taste “eggy”, NOT AT ALL! Saving this recipe forever!!

Mickey March 12, 2022 - 3:04 pm

I love this recipe. I make an entire recipe and then freeze for later.

The taste is GREAT, however, you said to pour the batter in and my batter was so think! I ended up adding some heavy cream in an attempt to liquify the batter a bit. Did I do something wrong?

Jenna Greer May 8, 2022 - 12:21 am

Same thing is happening to me. I’m adding buttermilk currently.

I made these this morning for breakfast and I have to say I was a little disappointed with the texture…nice and fluffy (I used a Belgium waffle maker) but too soft and not at all crispy. I even tried putting them in the toaster but that didn’t help. I saw one of the comments that says to let the batter sit for 30 minutes so I will try to see if that helps.

Really wonderful. We put a couple of slices of poached pears and cream cheese and meringue topping and had a wonderful keto dessert.

Colleen April 21, 2023 - 7:18 pm

I got 12 squares from my batch. So does that mean, 2 squares is one serving?

Joanna April 24, 2023 - 8:23 pm

Yes, my waffle maker is larger, and in this recipe, I’ve got 6 waffles. So If you got 12, you could enjoy 2 waffles.

Douglas Cohn June 24, 2023 - 9:19 pm

Can I use whole wheat flour instead?

Joanna June 26, 2023 - 1:49 pm

Of course! While the recipe calls for almond flour, you can certainly experiment with using whole wheat flour as a substitute in the Perfect Homemade Keto Waffles. Keep in mind that using whole wheat flour will alter the texture and flavor of the waffles compared to almond flour.
