Keto Waffles Ingredients
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’s a way to make gluten-free keto waffles with no flours. Here are the simple ingredients you’ll need for delicious waffles:
- cream cheese
- almond flour
- sweetener – Use your favorite low carb sweetener such as Erythritol, Swerve, Monk Fruit, or coconut sugar if paleo.
- Vanilla extract – Make sure to use plenty as it adds a nice flavor.
- baking powder
How To Make Crispy Keto Waffles
- Beat 4 eggs and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until frothy.
- 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.
- Meanwhile, heat your waffle maker and grease it well.
- Pour enough batter and cook according to your waffle maker instructions, for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
Waffles with Almond Flour Variations
This recipe is a classic one that can be customized in so many ways:
- sugar-free chocolate chips
- blueberry keto waffles
- toasted walnuts or almonds
- lemon zest
- chocolate powder
- pumpkin puree
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 that 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.
How to Store Keto Waffles
This low carb waffle recipe makes about 6 waffles that are perfect to have on hand during the week. If you prefer to make more and store them, you can double or triple the ingredients.
To store these gluten-free waffles, let them cool and place them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to one week.
They also freeze well, and I was surprised to see that they freezer-friendly. I pop them back into the waffle maker to get the best crispy keto waffles.
