This is it! The World’s Best Keto Waffles. Hands down. So get a hold of your socks folks, because this Keto Waffle recipe is about to knock them right off!
My Keto waffles are simply the best. 🏆
These waffles could go head to head with any waffle, any time, any place. They could throw down with IHOP and come out the victor. No question. These low carb waffles are better than those pitiful excuses for waffles because they have just 5g net carbs and a whopping 19 grams of protein. And they taste like a million bucks!
So let me show you how I make this Keto Waffle recipe.
Waffles tend to be nutritional wastelands. Lots of sugar and white flour and not much else. But check out the ingredients in my Keto Waffles:
- cream cheese
- baking powder
- coconut oil or melted butter
- almond flour
This is real food, people!
And did I mention that it also makes the World's Greatest Low Carb Pancakes? Well, it does. Best Keto waffles and pancakes ever. Just leave out the oil or melted butter.
🍯 Sugar-Free Syrup
You've got two schools of thought on this one. You can buy fancy Keto friendly sugar-free maple syrup in specialty stores and on Amazon if you like. Or you can go the low-brow route and buy the sugar-free syrup you can find in the pancake aisle of the supermarket. No judgment.
🍓 Waffle toppings
- peanut butter
- almond butter
- cream cheese
- sweetened cream cheese
- whipped cream
🍳 Waffle sides
- sausage links
- sausage patties
- Canadian bacon
😋 Waffle Add-Ins
- sugar-free chocolate chips (1 tablespoon)
- chopped walnuts (1 tablespoon)
- chopped pecans (1 tablespoon)
- vanilla extract (1 teaspoon)
- cinnamon (1 teaspoon)
You need two appliances: a blender and a waffle iron. The recipe was developed to make one large Belgian waffle, but the batter will make 2-3 regular-sized waffles, depending on how big your waffle iron is. It will also work with mini waffles, for added cuteness.

🍚 Almond flour
The more almond flour you use, the thicker the waffle. If you are doing strict 20 grams of carbohydrate a day Keto, then you are going to want to stick to 2 TB of almond flour. This waffle will be perfectly adequate but on the thin side. Using 3 TB makes a thicker waffle. And you can make a very thick waffle by using 4 TB of almond flour. The carb count will be from 5-7g net carbs depending on which one you choose.
- Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray and pre-heat.
- Add all wet ingredients to a blender. Then add all dry ingredients.
- Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides once, for 30-60 seconds.
- Pour the batter into the hot Belgian, regular or mini size waffle iron, and cook according to manufacturer's instructions, usually 3-4 minutes.
- To make a double batch, click on the button that says "2X" to the right of the ingredients in the recipe card. Then cook the batter in two batches.
- Storage: Makes a great meal prep low carb breakfast. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. It's best to reheat the Keto waffles in a toaster oven.
And that's about it, waffle-wise. 🧇
In less than ten minutes, you can make the best Keto waffle recipe on the whole entire Internet.

Yea, you can't beat a blender recipe for speediness. 😊
Love the texture and flavor of these waffles. I didn't realize how much I missed waffles. Thanks for the recipe!
Emily Krill says
Sure thing! 😊
I made these with almond flour and butter as my brother does not like coconut and I've helped him with his keto journey. I've added cayenne pepper, garlic and chilli flakes to these as he likes spice and they are a great hit. I also make a batch with ground cinnamon as I love it and with double cream it's a tasty keto dessert.
Oh yum, those all sound great. Maybe now that it’s Fall you might like my pumpkin waffle recipe. Thanks so much for your nice comment! https://www.resolutioneats.com/blog/low-carb-pumpkin-waffles/

Wow. I made these with fresh macadamia meal (which I ground up in my blender), and used melted butter - instead of coconut oil. I added a sprinkle of Stevia. They were so delicious, they reminded my husband and I of the normal tasting waffles before we even knew about Keto. These do not taste like keto. I feel like I'm cheating with these. I hate the taste of almond flour, so I highly recommend these be made with macadamia flour - if you hate the taste of almonds. Thank you so much for this recipe. So quick and easy.
I’ve actually never heard of macadamia flour. Thanks for the tip!
I didn’t have cream cheese so I used 1/4th cup of sour cream and had a lot of faith. Lol the bather def needed thickness but it came out great and I can’t wait to try it with cream cheese when I buy some. Bc it needed some crisp. I sprinkled some cinnamon and had some warm syrup on top. Thanks for breakfast this morning. 😉
Sure thing. Thanks for letting me know that sour cream works.

This was horrific. Still cleaning the goop out of my waffle iron.
Oh no! Did you use oil spray?
Julie Vaea says
I have literally tried soooo many waffle recipes of all kids in my waffle maker and the stick and come out aweful. I was actually going to go and buy another waffle maker today... these are amazing! Came out perfectly. Soft. No stick... best by far. Thank you!!
Absolutely amazing 👏
Absolutely amazing waffles and so easy to make! My new breakfast meal for either Saturday or Sunday. Hey, can even use it for a dinner meal if you want to.
I add some bacon and eat it for dinner sometimes. It’s definitely a family favorite. Glad you like them too.

First time trying this recipe. Not bad. A bit eggie but with some blueberries on top not bad at all. I will make these again.

I made this recipe today and I thought it was really good. I used only 3 Tbs of almond flour, and added 2 scoops of Dulce de Leche protein powder with maybe a tablespoon of almond milk. I also used a mini waffle maker instead. I got 5 mini waffles. I ate 3 and will freeze the other two for tomorrow! The waffles were fluffy, and tasted yummy. I'm sure I changed the nutritional value but I am working on reducing my carbs, not quite ready for full Keto.
Thank you for a great recipe!
Great! Those sound like good additions. None of the extra ingredients aren't Keto, so you only added a very minimal amount of carbs, less than 1 g for the almond milk.
While I definitely didn't find these to be the best ever waffles or even keto waffles, I did like them. My boyfriend thought the coconut oil flavor was too strong. I love the taste of coconut oil and felt it was the only thing really giving these any flavor so I liked it. I used the 1 egg to 3 tablespoons ratio. If I make them again I would maybe add a bit of vanilla extract, salt, and maybe a combination of coconut flour and almond flour to try and improve the flavor. The texture was great!
This is good info! I tried these with 2 eggs and only 2 Tbs flour and it was too Eggy. Will try your ratios and also add vanilla and salt.
