Are waffles keto?

No, a regular waffle is made with all-purpose flour, white flour, or gluten-free flour. It also has added sugar and is usually served with maple syrup or honey. They are avoided on the low-carb diet and keto diet.

A traditional waffle can have up to 25g net carbs per waffle.

This keto waffles recipe, only has 2.5 grams of net carbs each! With carbs that low you can stack a few together, add melted butter, and a drizzle of sugar-free syrup with no guilt whatsoever.

Ingredients for keto waffles

This keto sweet waffle recipe is amazing and it has a simple ingredient list.

  • eggs – fresh eggs will make your low-carb waffles fluffy
  • coconut flour – using coconut flour instead of almond flour makes these high-fiber and low-carb
  • sweetener of choice – the most popular sweeteners are erythritol, monk fruit, allulose, and xylitol.
  • baking powder – do not confuse baking powder with baking soda
  • vanilla extract – or vanilla essence
  • full-fat milk or heavy cream
  • melted butter

All quantities, ingredients, and instructions are in the recipe card below.

Best low-carb flours to use

The most common low-carb flours to use in low-carb waffles are almond flour and coconut flour. Both are low-carb, high-fiber and naturally gluten-free.

These gluten-free waffles are made using coconut flour.

Can you swap all-purpose flour for low-carb flour?

Traditional wheat flour pancake recipes can’t be easily swapped to use almond flour or coconut flour. These two low-carb flours behave completely differently. So my suggestion is to always cook a breakfast pancake that has already been developed using these new healthy low-carb flours.

Coconut flour vs almond flour

FDA On Nuts:The FDA lists coconut as a tree nut but in fact, coconut is a seed of a drupaceous fruit. Most people allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut. Coconut allergy is reasonably rare. If you are allergic to tree nuts, talk to your allergist before adding coconut to or eliminating coconut from your diet.”

Almond flour recipes tend to be higher in carbs than coconut flour recipes but almond flour recipes tend to be more popular because they are easier to make for beginners.

Can you swap coconut flour for almond flour?

No, you cannot directly swap coconut flour for almond flour. These gluten-free flours behave in completely different ways. Coconut flour is more absorbent and requires a large number of eggs to make the waffle recipe light and fluffy.

The easiest way to make fluffy keto waffles or fluffy keto pancakes is to use coconut flour or almond flour. Almond flour pancakes are higher in carbs than coconut flour sheet pan pancakes but I provide both so you have a choice on your keto diet.

Best sugar-free sweetener to use

The best keto sweeteners to use is one that taste just like sugar but without the calories, or carbs.

The most popular sweeteners are granulated erythritol, powdered erythritol, monk fruit, allulose (it cooks and bakes with a crunchy toffee crisp just like sugar), and xylitol.

A word of caution if you use stevia drops or stevia powder. Stevia is 400 times sweeter than sugar so it needs to be diluted in liquid or powder so you can measure it accurately. Some brands of stevia are diluted in alcohol or dextrose. So read the ingredients labels very carefully.

How to make keto waffle batter

This keto waffles recipe tastes just like a regular pancake house waffle because I add sweetener, melted butter, and vanilla essence. They’re cooked in a waffle maker (or waffle iron) to be the best-cooked keto waffles you’ll ever make.

STEP 1: In a medium mixing bowl, add your egg whites and whisk until firm with stiff peaks.

STEP 2: In a larger bowl, mix together the egg yolks, coconut flour, sweetener, and baking powder.

STEP 3: Slowly pour in the butter. Keep mixing to make sure your batter is smooth! Then add in the milk and vanilla extract and mix again.

STEP 4: Now grab your bowl of egg whites and gently fold spoonfuls of it into the yolk batter. Don’t overfold or the waffles will not be fluffy.

Finally, add the batter to a prepared waffle maker. Cook until golden brown and serve with your choice of toppings!

Equipment

To mix this together you’ll need the standard mixing bowl. But, most importantly, you’ll need a waffle maker or waffle iron. You can even use a mini-waffle maker or regular waffle maker or waffle iron.

How to cook keto waffles

Always spray your waffle maker with cooking spray, melted coconut oil, or melted butter to prevent the waffle from sticking.

Pour in enough batter to cover the bottom of your waffle maker. Cook until crispy on the outside and golden brown.

Carefully remove with silicone kitchen tongs or a wooden spatula and repeat until all the batter is used.

How long does it take to cook a waffle? It depends on the size and brand of your waffle iron. Some machines will cook faster than others, and pouring more batter will cook slower than a small serving size.

How to store waffles?

These healthy waffles can be frozen in between sheets of baking paper/parchment, in an airtight container.

Simply remove one or two frozen waffles at a time and pop them in the toaster or toaster oven, cook them in a panini press, or an air fryer, or microwave them. Serve with keto syrup, whipped heavy cream, and low-sugar berries,

Variations and flavors

Each low-carb waffle is simply an egg, coconut flour, your favorite sugar replacement, and some butter (plus a few other ingredients to make them rise and tasty).

You can adapt the basic waffle recipe by adding vanilla extract or cocoa powder to make vanilla or chocolate keto waffles.

You can make them sweet (using the recipe card below) or make savory waffles by omitting the keto sweetener and adding a pinch of salt instead.

How to serve waffles

I like to place a scoop of sweetened cream on the top of my pancakes and sprinkle them with sugar-free dark chocolate chips and roasted macadamia nuts. But there are so many other toppings for keto pancakes.

The best part about making these keto waffles is eating them! Here are a few ideas for how to serve this breakfast staple:

  • Load them up with whipped cream. Whether you make the vanilla waffles or chocolate, both are fantastic with a spoonful of fresh whipped heavy cream.
  • Serve with berries. Cut each keto waffle in half, spread each half with cream cheese, and add some berries such as fresh strawberries or fresh blueberries inside.
  • Add nut butter. I love these keto waffles served with sugar-free chocolate spread (keto “Nutella”), almond butter, or peanut butter. Just watch the carb count!
  • Keto maple syrup (or caramel syrup)
  • Sugar-free chia berry jelly/jam
  • Serve them the classic way. Salted butter and some sugar-free maple syrup work so well here.
  • Recreate the fast food staple. Using the savory keto waffles as bread to hold a cooked egg and a sausage patty is the perfect breakfast sandwich. Then dip the breakfast sandwich into the sugar-free maple syrup.
  • Make an ice cream sandwich. Toast the waffles a bit longer than usual, then fill with low-carb ice cream.
  • Drop in some choc chips. Grab your favorite keto chocolate chips and drop them into the batter before you add them to the waffle maker.
  • Experiment with spices. Add some ground cinnamon or ginger if you like different flavors.

Serve them with a cup of coffee or a glass of keto-friendly unsweetened almond milk. Add some fried egg whites on the side and you have a healthy low-carb breakfast.

How many keto waffles can I eat?

The nutrition panel below shows the nutrition for one waffle. 2.5 g net carbs, 6.8 g protein, 25.6 g fat, 277 calories.

Most readers like to eat two or more waffles for breakfast. It really depends on how many carbs per day you enjoy and what you decide to serve alongside. You can reduce the carbs by only omitting any fresh fruit and only serving with melted butter, keto syrup, or whipped heavy cream.

You can also cook half the recipe in a small mini waffle maker or cut each waffle into smaller pieces and dust with powdered sugar-free sweetener.

Award-winning waffles

Every low carb/keto waffle recipe on Pinterest, have all been crap. Today was different. Big time different. Life altering different. Angels singing in my mouth different. Even my husband, who is unimpressed with all things Keto, couldn’t stop saying Wow… WOW…. These are legal???

Libby, you have just won the “Best Keto Waffle In The Entire World” award, which is apparently just my undying gratitude. You have changed my life for real, because now I can be excited about weekend breakfasts again. You are a Keto Goddess and I bow to you.

Thank You!

FAQs about this keto waffles recipe

Can I eat waffles on the keto diet?

As long as you follow keto recipes, you can definitely eat waffles on a low-carb diet. When you make keto waffles, just use low-carb ingredients and you will be sure to stay in ketosis.

Can I substitute out the coconut flour for almond flour?

Sorry, but definitely not! Almond flour and coconut flour are very different from each other and can not be used interchangeably.

If you dislike coconut flour, I’d suggest trying a different recipe such as these almond flour pancakes.

What else can I make with a waffle maker?

I am quite picky about what tools I allow to take up space in my kitchen. That being said, I absolutely love my waffle maker! I use it for this recipe but also use it often to make chaffles.

How can I make these keto waffles crispy on the outside?

Soggy waffles usually occur when there is too much moisture in the batter. Make sure to carefully measure your ingredients and give your waffle iron a bit of oil to help fry these on.

Do I need a waffle maker?

You can fry the waffle recipe in a frying pan, but then you need to call them keto pancakes. If you don’t have much room, use a dash mini waffle maker.

Can I use baking soda instead of baking powder?

No, baking soda is not a 1:1 replacement for baking powder.

How to keep waffles warm

While you are cooking each waffle you can keep the cooked waffles warm in a toaster oven set on low-medium heat, in the oven on a baking tray (baking sheet), or in a slow-cooker set to low.

Which is the best vanilla to use?

Pure vanilla extract has the purest taste but it may be too expensive for most so vanilla extract or vanilla essence both work well.

What is a chaffle made of?

Do not confuse these almond flour waffles with keto chaffles. Chaffles are made with cheese and eggs. There are a lot of different versions of chaffles, some are made with canned coconut milk, and others are made with egg whites.

How many waffles does this make?

This waffles recipe will make 5 regular waffles or 10 small mini-waffles.

Why do my waffles stick to the waffle iron?

You need to spray with cooking oil every time your pour more batter in, otherwise, each waffle will absorb the cooking oil as they bake.

What are Belgian waffles?

These are larger and thicker than American waffles. They can hold more toppings and sauce.

  1. Hi Libby, I can’t have milk products. Do you think this recipe would work if I replaced the 3 tbsp full fat milk with 3 tbsp coconut cream? Thanks.

  2. Antoinette says:

    Will full fat coconut milk work in the recipe?

  3. do these taste real eggy?

    1. No not at all. I have made these so many times and never once do they taste eggy. I love using plenty of vanilla and they are incredible.

  4. Wow! These are scrumptious ! Thanks for the recipe!
    I used heavy whipping cream as I didn’t have milk and they turned out so light and yummy!

    1. Terry that’s great to hear you have made them so quickly after I have just posted the recipe and they turned out so well. I think they may soon become a regular for many families now.

      1. I did make them soon after you posted! I was hungry and saw those and thought I’d give them a try! I’ve shared the recipe with several family members and can’t wait to see what they think! Makes LCHF fun ! Thanks!

  5. Libby, is the waffle pictured the size of the waffle indicated as one serving? My waffle maker is a lot smaller than that and makes 2 square waffles – I’m trying to figure out how many waffles the recipe might make with my smaller machine!

    1. Yes I serve the waffle shown as one serving, the recipe will make 5 so adjust the nutrition according to how many you manage to make in your waffle maker.

  6. I dont have a waffle maker. can i fry it in the pan like a pancake maybe?

  7. Dee Reddan says:

    Hi, The coconut is also a nut.

    1. You got me thinking and here is the true definition of a coconut “The term coconut can refer to the entire coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit. Botanically the coconut fruit is a drupe, not a true nut. A drupe is a fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a pit of hardened endocarp with a seed inside.”

    1. Yes, and I do. Freeze in an airtight container and place a piece of baking paper in between each waffle to stop them from sticking to each other.

  8. How many tblsp is 4.5ozs? Don’t have anything to weigh by ozs. Thank you, definitely going to do these!

  9. Would almond flour work instead of coconut flour?

    1. Probably not as coconut flour and almond flour have different properties. If you don’t want to use coconut flour, psyllium husks may work? The coconut flour is there to bind the ingredients and make the waffles sturdy.

    2. I used almond flour today and it worked for me. I also used heavy whipping cream instead of milk. It was very tasty!

  10. This may be too much of a change but is there a way to make these paleo AIP friendly? So it would need to be dairy free and egg free, so coconut milk would work for milk but would need a substitute for eggs and butter?

    1. No that would change this particular recipe entirely but what a fantastic suggestion for future recipes. What ingredients would be suitable for you?

    2. Daisy, if I may, here are some options to check out, not a definitive answer. I was once p-aip myself, and sometimes go back to if autoinflammatory symptoms seem to be creeping back.
      For the eggs, try making gelatin eggs, I use the red can of Great Lakes Unflavored as it is easy to find where I live, just gelatin and water (a quick internet search will provide the ratios).
      For the butter, Ghee if not allergic/intolerant, or some sort of solid fat (i.e. coconut oil, beef fat, pork fat, duck fat, etc.).
      HOWEVER, you will need to determine carb counts for each of these options and the amounts used.
      Hope this is helpful to you, and good luck!:)

    1. You could try coconut oil but you may need to add some more vanilla as the butter is there for flavour and texture. You could even add cinnamon too. The butter gives it a rich creamy taste so you may have to play around with the recipe a little to get it to your liking. I’d love you to report back if it works.

  11. Julie Hawkes says:

    Well it’s pancake day today in the UK! Determined to stay off sugar we made this recipe without the stevia initially to see how we would like it. It was ok, then we added a tiny amount of stevia to the remaining mixture and that was very nice, we used coconut oil to cook them as pancakes, then added a strawberry with double cream topping. We ate far too much and are now stuffed!!!

  12. Katharyn Grace says:

    Oh my word ! I made these into pancakes and as they are cooking I’m thinking ” There is no way these are going to work” and then suddenly they firm up into fluffy heaven cakes and I realize that yes, I really can survive low carb. We low carbies eat good!

  13. I have been keto for three years now. Every darn time I see a new low carb/keto waffle recipe on Pinterest, I get all excited, dust off the waffle iron, throw some bacon in the oven, and about a half hour later the air is blue with expletives as I curse the liar who swore their recipe was just like the “real” waffles of my past. Up until now they have all been crap. Today was different. Big time different. Life altering different. Angels singing in my mouth different. Even my husband, who is unimpressed with all things Keto, couldn’t stop saying Wow… WOW…. These are legal???

    Libby, you have just won the “Best Keto Waffle In The Entire World” award, which is apparently just my undying gratitude. You have changed my life for real, because now I can be excited about weekend breakfasts again. You are a Keto Goddess and I bow to you.

    Thank You!

    1. Oh my word Lisa, I absolutely love this. I am imagining right now the keto angels are floating around you playing harps. And the fact you have just named me a Keto Goddess, well, that’s just made my day, possibly year. Love it. I’ll be added that as my tag line I think. Thank you, Libby, the Keto Goddess. 🙂

  14. These showed up on my FB time line. I’ve ordered a non stick waffle maker just for this recipe! My only thought is did you still use butter or coconut oil to grease the waffle maker? When I bake with coconut flour, I found no matter how well I greased the pan, the item stuck! I finally resorted to using silicon bakeware. I would like to make these successfully without making a mess of it! Any tips appreciated!

    1. I generally spray the waffle maker for the very first waffle then the butter that comes out of each waffle as it is cooking is enough to ensure the next one doesn’t stick.

        1. They turned out amazing, my husband loved them as well! We had them with strawberries and homemade ice cream sweetened with Natvia. Today we had them with strawberries and whipped cream! I’m going to make chocolate ones next time!

  15. THE best grain free waffles in the world!!! My 2 yo loves them as well! Thanks so much for this recipe! Freezes well and we put them in the toaster quickly to warm them up, top with butter and enjoy! Also, we don’t put any sugar in them and they are still amazing!

    1. Good to know! I’m very against artificial sweeteners and we’re LCHF so I cry a little issue when I read stevia or erithrytol in a recipe.

  16. Do you think these would work in a Belgium waffle maker? My daughter is a total carb-aholic so anytime i can cut down on them, i try to take advantage of it

  17. marcella hazelwood says:

    instead of full milk , can i use coconut or almond mild??? have been making tons of pancake and waffle low carb versions and some good some not. cant wait to try these

    1. The almond milk may be too thin and watery for the waffle, the coconut cream would be great although it may add a coconut flavour to the pancakes – which may be a bonus if you love coconut.

  18. O.m.g. I just made these for breakfast and they were absolutely amazing!! I didn’t have enough butter (only about 7 tbs) and no milk in the fridge so I used half and half and liquid sugar free French vanilla creamer to add to the required liquids (and didn’t use any other sweeteners to sweeten them either, creamer was enough) and the waffles turned out fantastic! My bf who doesn’t really eat low carb (unless I’m cooking and he has no choice hehe) had the first waffle and said they tasted kinda eggy, but then quickly said “like french toast” which made me really excited, because I looove and miss french toast! I topped mine with sugar free apricot preserves and french vanilla flavored whipped topping. I told my bf you are an amazing person for coming up with this recipe as these are going to be my weekend breakfast from now on!! Oh, I used my Belgian waffle maker and only got 3 waffles out of it, but I can’t wait to use the recipe for other things like breakfast sandwiches, etc. Yummm. Anyways, thank you, Keto Goddess!!

    1. I am so loving being named the keto goddess. I’ll dream up some more amazing things for you. Watch out for what I will post by this afternoon – amazing!!!!!

    2. Marina, check if your sugar free French vanilla creamer has high fructose corn syrup. That would increase the carbs measurably. I used to use the “sugar free” creamer until I checked the ingredients list!!!

  19. Made these this morning in a regular waffle maker! It made two regular size waffles. I imagine the ones you are making here are quite small since you say this recipe serves 5 (and we made two). I just want to make sure I understand – since you say it serves 5 and the macro-nutrient information is per 1 serving – I would multiple by that by 5 to get the TOTAL nutrition info, yes? Just wanting to make sure.

    I only ate 1/2 of my waffle anyways 🙂 It was VERY good!

    1. I just went and measured my waffle maker, the waffles are 6 inch/ 15 cm in diameter. The entire recipe makes 5 waffles, the nutrition is per waffle. Yes to get the total nutrition values for the entire recipe, you need to multiply it by 5. You must have a enormous waffle maker if it only makes 2 and you could only finish half. Wow.

  20. Absolutely the best in the world. I’m deleting all the other pancake and waffles I have collected over the years. I actually had to buy a new waffle iron too, as I had gotten rid of mine years ago.
    Thank You!

  21. Which stevia are you using? Because that much pure stevia would be way too sweet, to the point of being inedible.

    Is yours a blend with another bulking sweetener?

    I can easily figure out how much pure stevia is needed once I know what brand you are using, thanks.

  22. Hi. Is each waffle 4.5g NET carbs please? Or do I subtract the 2g of fibre from that to get net carbs? Xx

  23. Not sure if I did something wrong or its my waffle iron or what, but are these supposed to come out really floppy? Mine are really limp and one even tore apart getting out of the iron. The taste is great, but I was really expecting that stiff somewhat crunchy texture.

    1. They are supposed to be browned and a little firm on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They are certainly not crispy as waffles are usually crispy from the sugar. They shouldn’t tear apart. I’m thinking you need more coconut flour perhaps depending on the size of eggs you used.

  24. Could I substitute heavy whipping cream for milk? I’ve rid all things that have a decent amount of carbs in the house, so there is no milk to be found 🙁

      1. I just made these and I used 2T of Heavy whipping cream and 1T water instead of whole milk. Worked great.

  25. Hey do you ever add sugar free chocolate chips to this?

  26. Is there an alternative to the milk we could use to get the sugar down to 0g?

    1. Steven Crago says:

      These are really good. I didn’t have a mixer so my country butt put my whisk into my makita 18v drill and made stiff peak egg whites!! Lmao
      Instead of whole milk ( I didn’t have any) I used full fat Fage yogurt and it turned out great. Thanks!! Will check out your other recipes

  27. I just wanted to say that these keto waffles are amazing! I eat them plain with nothing on them. I wanted to share that I actually turned a batch of leftovers into French toast…..close your eyes good, no exaggeration. Sooooo, that led to monte cristo sandwiches that were truly mind blowing. This recipe has quickly become my go to bread recipe! One of the best recipes I’ve come across so far in my low carb life. Thank you, thank you!

    1. Wow! What an awesome idea!! Would never have thought of that!! Monte Cristo sandwiches on KETO?! Wow I CAN live like this!!!

  28. I always read comments on food blogs, but I never leave any. These waffles are so good that I can’t remain silent this time.

    I have tried numerous Keto waffle recipes (all those expensive wasted ingredients) and have been disappointed every single time… until now. I went into making these with a whole lot of skepticism (especially because of the coconut flour) and expecting to be let down like usual. Boy was I surprised after that first waffle came out of the waffle iron! These are the closest thing to a carb and sugar loaded waffle that I’ve come across since going Keto. I ate mine sprinkled only with cinnamon. I’m betting they are even better with a topping.

    I did use Erythritol instead of stevia and only 1tbsp which was plenty sweet enough for me. That was the only alteration I made.

    Thank you so much for this amazing recipe! Will definitely be making these again and again.

  29. Take out 1/3 of the coconut flour and add twice that amount of almond flour and you get a little denser waffle that comes out of the waffle maker easier. Also, if you add the vanilla last, and double the amount but stir less, just so you still see streaks, you get crunchy and sweet chunks in the waffle that taste a little like heath bars.

  30. Kto Waffles sound amazing. I suffer from IBS and fructose, Lactose and gluten intolerant.

    Coconut flour can be a problem on the IBS ( low fodmap diet).

    What are your alternatives?

    thank you

    sue

  31. I don’t believe in artificial sweeteners, including stevia, as I believe they are all bad for us. Do thee waffles need to be sweetened? My pre-keto waffle recipe didn’t have sugar so I wondering if these will turn out without the stevia.

    1. Stevia is not artificial, it comes from the stevia plant and no you don’t need to sweeten them. That is completely up to you which I why all my recipes say “sweetener of choice to taste”.

      1. Carolyn Shearer says:

        It might not be artificial but unfortunately I react to stevia like any other sweetener, tummy pops and gurgles and get diarrhoea. So sad as I crave sweet tastes, especially on a low carb diet. Looking forward to trying these waffles though 🙂

  32. OMG, these are FANTASTIC!!!! I’ve been looking for a legit waffle/pancake recipe, and this is it! So easy, and with ingredients I already had on hand which is always a bonus. I’m literally eating them right now while I type this. 🙂 I hope this is ok – I put a review on my Keto RN site (https://www.facebook.com/KetoRN/) and linked back to this page to give you the credit. This is SO GOOD! Thank you!!

  33. I just want say these waffles are wonderful. I have tried several pancakes & it just didn’t work. these were not granular & I didn’t have to flip them. Even my husband liked them…

  34. I made these today, the first waffle I made tasted like eggs. I ended up adding more vanilla and cinnamon and 1/2 cup of almond flour, folded them into the batter. So much better. Drizzled melted peanut butter and coconut butter on top. Yum!

  35. Carol Kent says:

    Hi Libby. I just started keto about 3 days ago. Am wondering if whole milk could be replaced with half/half since it has less carbs than milk. Wadda ya think? I’m eager to try this recipe! … especially since it is pretty simple and has gotten rave reviews!

    1. I have never used half/half (I had to google it to see what it is) but I’m sure that would work, and being lower in carbs, it’s a brilliant idea.

  36. Hello! I’m excited to try your waffles but wondering if they will turn out okay with almond milk and ghee instead of the milk and butter because I’m sensitive to dairy. Thanks for the amazing recipe! I’m looking forward to your dairy free suggestions… my stomach is growling after reading all the fabulous reviews. 🙂

    1. I’m sure the ghee will be fine, the almond milk however may not be high enough in fat. If it doesn’t work, try some coconut milk (if you can tolerate that). These really are amazing. Enjoy.

    Hi Libby, I’m looking for a crepes recipie with simple ingredients that I can flip without making a mess. Could be this one? How can I adjust the amount of flour to get thin but unbroken crepes? Did you try it? Thanks a lot for all your great work!!

    1. These are fabulous. Yes you can make them in the frying pan. I haven’t (I love my waffle maker) but some readers here have commented here and on Facebook they have and they flipped well.

  38. Hello! We are having a “waffle party” this Friday at work–do you think this mix is something I could make in the evening, store in the fridge, and bring in to work that morning? Or will it not work? 🙂

    Thank you!

    1. Yes it would work. This is exactly what I do when I have a pizza party for teenage sleepovers (using the pizza waffles). I make the waffles the night before or in the morning. Keep them in an airtight container then reheat them the next day in the oven. If you don’t have an oven, you could microwave them (they may be a bit floppy however) or warm them in a sandwich/panini press. Enjoy.

  39. Heather Brown says:

    I am new to the Keto food lifestyle. This recipe was the first waffle recipe I’ve tried & there are not enough words to describe how great they are. I had to substitute the coconut powder for almond powder; heavy whipping cream for the milk & used unsalted sweet cream butter. I put my wild blackberry jam with stevia on them & the flavors were fantastic!!!! Thank you Google for having this recipe first on the list!!!

  40. Lindseykytti says:

    I have a Belguim waffle maker so I wasnt sure if these would even work at first. Oh em gee! These are the best waffles I have ever had hands down. Ever is including wheat, buckwheat, buttermilk, you name it, these are THE BEST! Thank you so much for a breakfast food my 13 yo son can enjoy besides eggs before school.(going thru an I hate eggs stage right now)

  41. I loved these. Had them for dinner. Stewed frozen raspberries with splash lemon juice and vanilla, ricotta, cream and a teaspoon of sugar free cherry jam. Cinnamon sprinkle on top. Heaven! Home grown eggs from our chickens called Neville, Lay Lay, Coco, Peanutbutter and Strawberry Lollipop. Eggs with love.Scraps will go back to them tomorrow( I was full after one and a half waffles!!) Thankyou DTC’s.

  42. These are delicious and I love them! Thank you for making a great recipe for a Keto waffle! Now I don’t have to feel like something is missing for breakfast .. Im going to try these for the pizza too ?

  43. Victoria Olson says:

    This recipe is delicious!

    I am 64, an experienced Baker/cook. I follow this recipe to a T, except that I folded a quarter of the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture before I combined the two in the egg whites bowl, and I used granulated Splenda.

    I have a standard George Foreman grill with waffle plates. I got four large waffles out of this recipe. That changed the nutritional calculations, so I used the free MyFitnessPal app, which has a recipe calculator in it, to figure out the nutrition. Not all waffle irons are alike. My old waffle iron was smaller, and would’ve made 5 from this recipe.

    Also, I found these waffles give off a lot of steam. I baked them 4 minutes on high setting. I put them on a cake rack for a minute or two, to lose more of the steam and crisp up. Otherwise they were limp. Ymmv.

  44. Donna Schneider says:

    I’ve never commented on an online recipe before but oh my goodness, this has changed everything. I can’t BELIEVE how amazing these are. I don’t have a waffle iron so I made pancakes and I’m not a huge fan of artificial sweeteners so I didn’t add any. I added about a tablespoon of cinnamon instead and a little nutmeg with the vanilla. The first pancake was brilliant–lovely and fluffy, buttery and rich and beautifully golden brown. I ended up making mostly crepe-like pancakes instead–just ladle down the batter and spread it a little with a spatula to get more pan-to-cake surface area. they cooked super quickly but didn’t seem to burn easily, and flipping was a dream–way easier than with the floury-sugar laden pancakes of my past! I ended up with 11 thin pancakes about 5 inches in diameter. I can’t wait to make more without the flavorings to use as sandwich “bread!” Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙂

    1. Wow Donna I am overjoyed you loved my waffles enough to come and write a review. I have cooked them in a frying pan before but never thought of making them like crepes. Definitely one to try next time. Thank you 🙂

  45. Stephanie Proctor says:

    Can the coconut flour be substituted with almond flour?

      1. Can the sweetener be reduced? I increased recipe for 20 and it seems like a lot of seeetener.

        1. Absolutely, that is why I add to all my recipes “to your taste”. Each of us will have completely different sweet taste buds depending on how long we have been sugar free. 🙂

  46. Hi Libby, I’ve done these today on a frying pan ( no waflle maker) but I am not good with measurements. How many grams are in 1 waffle? So I can measure my intake per grams please? thank you. =)

  47. Oh sweet baby Jesus! I just made these and I can’t believe how delicious are they! With some whipped cream and fresh strawberries it was just like the real thing! Thank you so much!!!! I’m a fan!

  48. Let me tell you, I HATE eggs! I hate them, I wouldn’t even eat french toast growing up because I could taste the egg batter on them. But these are magical! What kind of sorcery is involved here as they don’t taste eggy at all!!!!!! They were amazingly fluffy. I used Sweetleaf Sweet Drops instead of granulated and added 1/4 tsp cinnamon.. They were amazing and 2 filled me up!!!

    1. Magical wizardry is to play here indeed. I was born on Halloween so maybe that is your answer 😉 Also as a pharmacist, I love making ‘formulas’ so just wait to see what other food magic I come up with. I love to think I cook using sorcery and mystical wonder. xxx

    2. i thought they were vary eggy… liked them but eggy… a little less would be nice..

  49. Just made these and they are delicious!!! So light compared to other options I’ve tried! excited to freeze the rest and enjoy them for breakfast during the week!

  50. I made these for the first time today. Although I followed the recipe closely, the consistency was quite different from the one in your video – the dough looked like scrambled eggs so I was quite sceptical. Nevertheless the results were fantastic and it tastes unbelievably. Another great keto breakfast or dessert. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Brilliant! Some recipes have to be trusted huh? Mine sometimes looks like scrambled eggs (I think it is the butter solidifying with the addition of the cold eggs) but it all cooks up a treat. Enjoy 🙂

  51. Angel thompson says:

    Please help. I’m allergic to coconut. I would like to try these waffles. Is there an alternative?

    1. Linda Mullen says:

      Hi Angel, I use Besan flour otherwise known as chickpea four, hope this helps.

      1. Are you using the same amount 1:1 ? Thanks !

  52. Hi, I made these. They tasted great, but the weren’t crispy at all. Any ideas where I may have gone wrong?

    1. Diana Power says:

      mine weren’t crispy either. Where are we going wrong? Honestly, I bought a waffle maker just for this recipe. So, I am rookie. Any help is appreciated.

      1. Same ? They taste amazing but I’d love if they were crispy! Could it be the type of waffle maker?

        1. Janelle Townes says:

          yes I made these to day, not crispy but fluffy in my belgian waffle maker but they were delicious. However since I used a belgian waffle iron, my recipe only made three. i even fed them to my very picky/ dont mess with my sugar type hubby and he said “tastes like waffles” now if these taste as good out of the freezer then i am in heaven

    2. They won’t get crispy because of the ratio of eggs in this recipe. Too eggy

  53. mari Bostic says:

    These sound fantastic, but ontop of having insulin resistance, wheat allergies, and sugar issues, we also have milk allergies. Do you think cashew milk would work?

    1. Sure! The milk is only in there so the waffles aren’t too heavy and it allows the batter to be spread evenly across the waffle maker. Enjoy 🙂

      1. Isn’t there sugar in the milk?

        1. Shirley Meeker says:

          U can substitute any kind of “milk” u have in home. Any kind works as is not the active
          ingredient, only gets the batter to be less thick.

  54. I asked for a waffle maker months ago for Christmas and then started a Keto diet! I was so sad thinking my waffle iron was going to go to waste. I have to admit, waffles with only 4T of “dry” ingredients just seems impossible, is it because you use so many eggs/the whites are whipped?

    I have a “sensitivity” (since that’s the word my naturopath likes to use) to egg whites & whey, so I’m going to try this with whipped aquafaba and coconut milk.

    FYI, The recipe I’m planning on using has <5% calories from carbohydrates, which seems INSANE to me! My weird tasting whole wheat/almond meal/protein powder waffles are 18% and I thought that was as low as you could go!

    1. Coconut flour is much more dense & absorbent vs regular flour. 1/3 to 1/4 cup of coconut flour is equivalent to 1 cup grain based flour.

  55. Sheri Boldt says:

    Have not had pancake/waffles in a long time. I was very skeptical about making these, but I am in totally in love with them! Thank you so much!

  56. I was just gifted a mini waffle iron. I didn’t have the patience to whip the whites so I added a teeny bit more baking powder and they came out amazing! Probably would only work with smaller waffles but they rise without an issue. Yummy.

  57. We had these for breakfast this morning and they were delicious! I mean, incredible – as good as any waffle I’ve ever eaten. To be honest I’d never normally dream of having waffles for breakfast as pre-LCHF they would never fitted in to my low fat diet (that just made me fat) so to have them on the allowed list is immense. Thank you for such wonderful recipes, you obviously put in loads of work and I thank you for providing such an amazing resource.

    1. Ah my pleasure Kellie. And I’m so glad to hear you have lost the fear of fat (it takes a while huh?). I have another pancake recipe coming up soon, so stay tuned.

      1. I just made these, and they are fantastic. (I halved the recipe with 3 eggs and it all worked fine.) Trying the chicken and leek pie next! Thanks Libby.

  58. Liz McCrea says:

    Does anyone have any tips for making these crispier? I loved the taste, but I prefer my waffles to be on the crispy side. I tried putting them in the toaster oven, and that just ended up with them almost burning. My husband has suggested frying them, but I haven’t tried that just yet. Thanks!

  59. I make these with ghee in place of the butter and unsweetened almond milk instead of cream because my hubby is paleo. We also do pancakes instead of waffles because we don’t have a waffle iron. They come out great 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.

    1. I was just going to ask about almond milk! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  60. These are amazing thank you so much!

  61. Cassia Feil says:

    I absolutely love this recipe! I planned to make some this morning, and I dreamt about it for the whole night. Yummy. Thank you so much 🙂

  62. These were amazing!! After I cooked them in the waffle maker I put them under the broiler and it really crisped them up!! Thank you!

    1. Great idea. I’m going to do this the next time I make some waffles.

  63. Michael Nance says:

    The highest compliments on this recipe. I’ve done low carb for some time and in trying carb substitutes have basically gotten to the point where if it doesn’t take good, I don’t bother with it. I absolute love waffles an have missed them. These are great! The closer you are to following the recipe and better the results. I also have removed the waffles and moved them on a sheet of parchment paper in the convection oven to crisp them a little further as well as keep them warm. Made them this morning for my celiacs child and was told these may be the best waffles of any type they’ve had. As a side not, I’m using Just Like Sugar (Table Top) which serves as a sweetener and big time fiber. Anyway, thanks for the time and effort in putting this together!

    1. Wow! I thought that I was the only one who knew about and used Just Like Sugar! It is soooo awesome! I have never seen anyone mention it in any low carb/ Keto article or blog. It would be worth your while to give it a try! (It is made from chicory root and measures and tastes…well, just like sugar!)

  64. These were soo good!!! What a difference whipping the egg whites does. I used heavy cream and two packets of truvia. No leftovers here!! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes !

    1. It simply makes them light and fluffy. So glad you love them. You can leave the milk out (or use HWC as you did), again, this is to make them light. They can also be frozen then reheated or toasted.

  65. These were AMAZING! My husband (who is very picky about waffles/pancakes) said that he liked them better than regular waffles.

  66. I can’t wait to try this. Some have mentioned butter replacement with ghee, but ghee is also dairy… I have coconut butter and am wondering if this will work instead of the butter?

      1. I make ghee easily using Alton Brown method, (google it) and my lactose intolerant son can eat anything I make with it. If you cook it a long time it smells divine….like butterscotch!

  67. Lynn Perrizo says:

    Good morning Libby!
    Life is good! I’ve been going to try your waffles for some time and today was the day! You said you modified the recipe from an old one you had. When I was a child, we always had waffles and pancakes from a recipe in a little cook book that was all recipes using apple cidar vinegar and baking soda. The chemical reaction of the two made them wonderfully light and fluffy. The waffle recipe had you separate the the eggs and beat them to stiff peaks as your recipe does. So instead of using the baking powder I substituted it with baking soda and used 1 tsp apple spider vinegar. I think I could have cut the cream back a bit or increased the coconut flour as the batter was a little thing but not much. They were wonderful! Thanks for your web site and all the work you do to make my LCHF lifestyle just a bit easier! Blessings!

  68. I made these today, trying to stay grain and sugar free after our most recent whole 30. Very, VERY yummy, good texture (not crisp but soft-fluffy, like french toast, as another commenter suggested), pretty easy to put together. They are quite filling! I considered doubling the recipe but am glad I didn’t, as I got 9-10 waffles out of the batch, enough to eat our fill & freeze 3. Recommended, all around!

  69. Tamiris Bortowski says:

    I tried and approved! I made it in the pan like a pancake, and although it was my first experience in the Keto-Pancake-world, it was a great experience! Ms. Keto Godness, you made my day, and my breakfast, with some bacon and cream on top! 😀

  70. Yes. These are the best keto waffles in existence. I only tried these because of the keto goddess comment and these were going to be the last keto waffle recipe I would try ever in life ever. I’m so glad they lived up to the rave reviews. My only substitution is that instead of only coconut flour I used half flax meal and half coconut flour. Delicious.

    1. I also made pancakes with part of the batter and they were amazing as well.

  71. This recipe makes the most tasty low carb waffles EVER!. I topped mine with a couple sliced strawberries and low carb whipped cream. awesome.

  72. WOW – fantastic waffles, they really are better than the high carb version. I used 1tbsp each flaxseed and almond meals in place of 1 tbs of coconut flour, and used coconut milk in place of the milk. We had them with some lightly cooked frozen blueberries and raspberries (with some Galliano), and cream cheese. These will be on the menu next weekend!!

    Thank you waffle Goddess!! 🙂

  73. Made these tonight using heavy whipping cream in place of the milk, since it doesn’t have any sugar in it, did not use any sweetener, and only used 1 stick of butter because that’s what I had. They do taste a bit eggy, kind of like french toast, like another commenter mentioned, but my plan for this batch was to use it for breakfast sandwiches, so the eggy taste is no big deal. I’m looking forward to experimenting with the recipe. I made these in a belgium waffle maker so it made 2 big waffles, which I consider to be 4 servings. They were plenty fluffy, soft, but I like softer waffles. Plus, I’ll freeze them and reheat in the toaster, so they’ll crisp up a bit at that point. The first batch did stick and I lost half the waffle, so we taste tested with the ripped up portion :). Used more cooking spray on the second batch and that one came right out.

    1. Great results! Next time add plenty of quality vanilla, I think brands must vary in their strength as a heavy vanilla taste removes any hint of egg. Ooh and plenty of butter – perfection 🙂

  74. I made these for breakfast this morning. They are wonderful! I have a Belgian waffle maker and I got 3 waffles from this recipe. My batter was never thin and I got the scrambled egg look even though I let the melted butter cool a bit before adding it. However, after reading some of the other reviews, I kept going. My husband was skeptical, but loved them too. He even told people at work about them and has referred them to your site. I ate mine with 2 strips of bacon and 1/2 cup raspberries with a little whipped cream at 7:30 am this morning. I was not hungry or snacky all the way up to lunch time. This is a first for me. I plan to make a larger batch and try freezing them for quick and easy breakfasts. Thank you so much for the recipe. It’s the first I’ve tried on your site. I’m excited to try more!

    1. Hi Tanya.

      How did the freezing/defrosting work out?

      Especially the defrosting. That is always the tricky bit.

  75. These waffles are INCREDIBLE! I’ve been wanting to try them for a long time but I don’t often feel like subs anymore. So when my brother came to visit I used the opportunity to whip some of these up for him and my sister. They LOVED them and they aren’t even lchf! I tried a tiny bit to gauge and thought they were great. When eaten piping hot without toppings they have a very slight eggy taste but just let them cool down a few minutes and it’s gone. This is definitely a top recipe!

  76. Hello! Thank you so much for your wonderful recipe. I tried it the first time and it worked great but subsequently I have got it all wrong, the mix is way too dry. Can you please confirm the weight of the coconut flour as opposed to the volume please as I think this may be the culprit. Also, the mix seemed to be lumpy, then I noticed the coconut flour in the sink making the same clumps in contact with water. Is this normal?

  77. Hi. I tried this waffle recipe and must say, it was amazing. I used coconut flour and alternated my milk for coconut milk instead. I didn’t include the vanilla extract but it still came out well.
    I used a pan which had grill lines so it gave me the waffles line effect! Lol. I was a it dry for me tho but I guess its cos I used lesser butter.
    I got 2 huge waffles from this and I could only eat one as I got really full. I’m glad I found this recipe and its been fun.
    Thanks for helping everyone that has tried this recipe with their journey in eating healthier.

  78. Thanks for sharing ! This recipe is amazing. So excited to make these again !!

  79. Megan Torres says:

    I am curious for those who want crispy waffles, could they add xantham gum? I ask because in the not carb friendly recipes for waffles the best have cornstarch in them to crisp the outside. I don’t have a waffle iron to test this theory otherwise I would. 🙂 Alternately it is recommended that you put the waffles on a baking sheet in the oven on 125 degrees until ready to serve to help preserve them.

    1. Shirley Meeker says:

      I wouldn’t mess with this recipe. If u want a crisper waffle just leave in machine a few seconds longer than average. I found the texture is good. Not soggy & not too tough. No need for extra ingredients.

  80. Laura Houston says:

    Hey! So excited to try this recipe out but I’m having trouble making sense of the nutritional info you have listed. I’ve matched every ingredient in my fitness pal but am getting 11g of carbs and 2 grams of fiber. This seems to be coming from using Swerve since 4TBS has 36 grams of carbs. Am I missing something or is your nutritional info off?

    1. You subtract sugar alcohols from the carb count. Try searching for “Swerve net carbs ” in mfp.

  81. I have to be honest.. I was a monster making these. I kept listing off all of the reasons they would be terrible in my mind. (I’ve been burned before!) But I dutifully pressed on.

    I even said to myself “If it looks like an egg, and smells like an egg, it might be because it contains 5 fluppin eggs! This is gonna taste like eggs!”

    This. Was. Great! I loved them!!

    Thanks for the recipe, it’s a keeper.

  82. Thank you for the great recipe…my granddaughter just loves having her peanut butter waffle sandwich for school lunches. However, I have made this recipe twice now and both times the mixture curdled. I don’t know if this is a problem with measurements as the recipe does not clarify if the tablespoon measurements are US tablespoons (15 ml) or Australian tablespoons (20 ml). Although the batter curdles, it still ends up working out OK, but I have to scrape the mixture onto the waffle maker rather than pour. Any advice would be very welcome.

      1. thanks Libby – are the measurements for tbs metric or US?

    1. Shirley Meeker says:

      How about adding more cream to your mixture. If batter looks too thick, add more fluid before mixing in the egg whites. End batter should be quite light & fluffy.

  83. Inlike practically everyone else, I thought these waffles were “meh” at best. The family ate them but said they tasted like French Toast. I will only make them again with modification to maken them taste less like eggs.

  84. Are the calories listed for all 5 servings? Thanks

  85. My wife & I are trying to stick to a low carb diet but needed a variation for breakfast instead of eggs scrambled, sunny-side up, poached, eggs, eggs, eggs etc etc. I thought, ‘what about low carb waffles’ ; the recipes that I came across were a stretch as the word waffle goes & then I was led to your site. I made them this morning(served with cream cheese & raspberry jam & bacon on the side). Not only were they good; they were fantastic. Light, fluffy, great taste & lightly browned. Released beautifully after they were done.
    The batter made 3 1/4 -7 inch size Belgian waffles.
    I followed the recipe to a T. Used whipping cream, Truvia & a little cream of tartar to help the egg whites.
    Two things are important (to me) when making the recipe: 1st-Combining ingredients- dry first-egg yolks with other liquids next minus the melted butter,then wet & dry combined together & then add the melted butter. Next gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
    2nd-Don’t overfill the batter in the waffle maker. Smooth out the batter, in the waffle maker, with a rubber spatula.
    Needless to say this is a KEEPER! Thank you

    1. Thank you for this tip , I thought I was doing something , started over and now I have smooth batter

  86. Snowflake says:

    My inner Leslie Knoppe is satisfied!

    Thank you for this recipe!

  87. Like several others I tried “someone else’s recipe” and it just had the wrong wrong texture – crumbly and not holding together. The key apparently is in the amount of eggs. I substituted 25% of the coconut flour for almond flour and upped the cream for more liquid because almond flour absorbs more, I think 5tbsp. Also used cream of tartar to help the egg whites hold better. The results were truly outstanding on the first try.

    1. coconut flour absorbs more, not almond. You have that backwards.

  88. Satisfied with my breakfast says:

    Warning: Don’t make these if you don’t want to have little clouds from heaven in and around your mouth.

    Great recipe. So fluffy.

    For those of you saying you want them crispy, spray your iron with lots of pam and leave it for an extra minute. That should crisp them up on the outside.

    1. That doesn’t work. I just made these. No matter how long I left them in, they never got crispy. I even took 2 out and put them in the toaster and they still never got crispy.

  89. I wanted to try using coconut oil or ghee in place of the butter but I don’t have a scale. Can you tell me how much the melted quantity is in tablespoons / cups please?? Really keen to try these! Thank you ?

  90. Lane Blaha says:

    Hi! I am so excited to try this!! I use Now Better Stevia Organic Extract Powder. I also have some Truvia packets. How do I do the conversion for 4 TBLSP of what you use?

    1. I never give conversions for brands because they are so different and change all the time. All the amounts I use are spoon for spoon instead of sugar. So if a recipe states 4 tablespoons, take a look at your brand, and see how much is the equivalent of 4 tablespoons of sugar. Sorry I can’t be more precise, as you can imagine, there are new brands out there almost daily. I also suggest with all my recipes, add sweetener to YOUR taste. We all have a completely different “sweet tooth” to one another depending on how long you have been sugar free. Some may need to add a LOT more, some may want to reduce it. We don’t want to rely on sweet flavours too often.

  91. Aubrey Young says:

    Hi, is there anything I could do in place if milk? If not will the recipe still turn out good without milk? Thanks!

    1. Yes you can use almond milk or another dairy free alternative.it’s only in there so the waffles are a little lighter. Feel free to omit it entirely.

  92. Mister 8 and mister 4 said yum. Even Mister 46 who is very fussy about baked stuff said they were alright. A great recipe for kids. I’m now wondering if I can make a none sweetened one as a substitute for Praha or roti

  93. Myra Billson says:

    Gave up reading the hundreds of positive comments but can’t resist adding mine! AB FAB!!! I made half quantities to try them out and used 3 eggs – totally forgot the baking powder but with the extra egg didn’t need it! They were totally yummy – also found it hard to believe they were absolutely LEGAL!! Next time will try a savoury version. THANKYOU! THANKYOU! THANKYOU!

    1. Didn’t it call for five eggs?

  94. Can you refrigerate the mix and use next day? We loved these btw and these were our first Keto recipe. Will definitely be trying more ! Also can you use almond flour instead??

    1. I have never kept the uncooked batter, I fear it may split. You can however make a double batch and then freeze the left overs (if there are any). They are perfect for a quick breakfast, snack or lunch box filler. Almond flour would be amazing, but that would have to be a new recipe entirely. You may want to read this pos – Almond flour vs Coconut flour. And look at these 19 top low-carb pancakes, many of them use almond flour and are yummmmmmm.

  95. Are these supposed to shrink coming out of the waffle iron? I just wanted to make sure I’m not doing something wrong. They taste GREAT and I’ve made them 4 times already. My boyfriend no longer misses his hotel waffles!

  96. These were delicious. My 4 year old has mild autism spectrum disorder and is VERY fussy with food, but he loves them!!! Brilliant recipe ?

    1. Helen you have just made my day. Send big hugs to your boy. I am overjoyed he loves these. Next, he might like to try the pizza waffles. They are very similar to this, and then you would have a versatile sweet and savoury option for him. 🙂

  97. Can this be made with just egg whites? I have a yolk sensitivity.

    1. I have never tried but I think you would need the fat form the egg yolk. Has anyone here tried this recipe just with egg whites? Any advice for Beth?

  98. I threw the waffle iron out, but I still have a griddle in storage. What changes does it take to make this a pancake recipe?

    1. You don’t need a waffle maker (although they do turn out pretty). You can even make these in a traditional frying pan as pancakes too.

  99. Can i substitute with Almond meal?

  100. Hi Libby – just made these and even though I wondered if it would taste eggy, it did turn out fab, and looked like the real thing when it came out of the waffle iron. I did a couple of tweeks which I was happy with – a tsp of psyllium powder and a teaspoon of apricot kernel oil for that almond essence taste that I love in baked goods.10/10! BTW I love your coconut flour based recipes!
    The other recipes I use heaps, which I think are pure genius, are the coconut shortbread cookies, focaccia bread made into bread rolls and the hot cross buns (I add a couple of drops of orange essential oils to it – amazing). Thanks for your genius! Love your work!!!

    1. Awesome feedback Karen. I absolutely love it when readers tweak my recipes and come up with their own combinations. I love the idea of flavoured oils. What a great way to add some zing and to “pimp” recipes – love it!

  101. This is delicious! I used half vanilla and half almond extract. No sweetener!! Delicious ? o then tried with sugar free Carmel syrup!! Oh my goodness!!! Yummy ?

  102. I just made these and am eating them while I type. The texture is DEFINITELY not that of a waffle, so don’t get excited about that aspect of it. I followed the recipe to an absolute T and these are very dense. The coconut flour is very noticeable. They never firmed up. They are as soft as a soggy waffle. I tried leaving the 2nd round in longer to get crispier, but that doesn’t work. No matter how long I left them in, they never got crispy. They LOOKED crispy/brown, but they weren’t. I even took 2 out and put them in the toaster and they still never got crispy. I tried adding butter and they still tasted bland. I added chocolate morsels… still bland. I expected a lot more from this recipe with all the reviews. Maybe I’m just new to the taste of the low carb world, but these taste NOTHING like a waffle — at all.

    1. I made these per the recipe and they were crispy. I coked them on the higher setting on my waffle iron. Then I placed them on a cookie rack which worked out great. The next day I toasted the leftovers and made a BLT! This is by far the best “bready” type food for Keto. IM going to try thevrecioe savory. Maybe some thyme/rosemary and Trader Joe’s bagel seasoning with cream cheese. Yum.

    2. Livia,

      I had the same experience with them being too floppy to satisfy me as a waffle, BUT they made great low-carb pancakes. I add 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon to the batter and cut the sweetener to 3 tablespoons. Also, I by large eggs, so only use 4 rather than 5 medium called for in the recipe.

  103. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS WAFFLE MAKER?!?!?! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for! Something to make big, THIN, non-belgian waffles! I tried the link in the first paragraph but it didnt work 🙁

      1. Nancy Hill says:

        Is the serving size 1 full waffle or. 1/2 or 1/4th of waffle?

  104. Elizabeth webb says:

    I made these tonight and I cook the first batch and they were a little bit limp so went to the second batch and I thought cook them a little longer add a little bit more to each of the sides to make it thicker and that seemed to work I did cut back on the stevia or swerve to two-and-a-half to my liking and they are as close to a waffle as I’ve tasted thanks so much for sharing

  105. I was a little scared to try this recipe due to a few of the comments saying they were eggy or had a weird texture… but I decided to go ahead and give them a try anyway…. I’m so glad I did! Mine did not taste eggy at all and the texture was perfect! I made half of the recipe, subbed cream with almond milk to save on carbs, and used half the amount of vanilla and used maple extract for the other half 🙂 Really good. It made me close to 3 full waffles, and it was only 3 net carbs for the full stack!

    1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love this recipe and can’t figure out why some say it is eggy. Add more vanilla and sweetener I say to those who are finding this one tricky – that seems to solve most low-carb baking problems 🙂 I’m so glad you love them 🙂

      1. What kind of sweetner did you use?

  106. Literally the best waffles in general! I’ve never had such crispy, fluffy waffles in my life. These are perfect! Awesome recipe, make it!!!

  107. Alexandra Turmel says:

    Sooooo I completely forgot the butter when I made these… But they turned out very tasty! They were just too limp and thin to my liking, a bit like pancakes. I put 1tsp maple extract and 1tsp vanilla, as well as almond butter instead of cream to save carbs (found these tips in the comments)! But yeah, the taste was good and not eggy at all even without the butter. Mine turned out at 1.3g Net carbs per waffle/pancake (I made 5 small waffles). Can’t wait to try these WITH the butter hahaha! I guess this butterless version would make a great low calorie, low carbs pancake/crepe version 🙂 (mine turned out to be 95 cals per serving)

  108. Can I use almond meal? Sorry if this was asked earlier, but I didn’t honestly want to read all of the comments

  109. All I can say is wow, these are absolutely delicious. These will definitely become a staple for my breakfasts on a weekend! I love them. Well worth the little bit extra work. Beautifully light and fluffy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

      1. Hi Libby,
        I don’t know what I am doing wrong, but I’ve tried to post three times and it’s not showing up.
        Is the granulated sweetener necessary to bulk up the recipe or can it be left out? I can’t eat the sugar alcohols and would just add a few drops of monk fruit drops to sweeten them.
        Thank you! I can’t wait to try them.

        1. Replying now (late Sunday night here). I approve and answer questions as often as I can but I do try my hardest to spend the weekend with my children and family 🙂 If you wish to use a different sweetener, by all means, go for it. I use the minimum sweetener so unlike sugar, it is not a bulking agent. Yes, you can use the sweetener drops of your choice. And as I mention in all my recipes, taste before baking then adjust to your tastebuds and sweet tooth. 🙂

  110. Megan foster says:

    Idk what waffles yall are eating. But these were the grossest waffles i have ever laid my tongue on. Horrible.

  111. Hi Libby,
    I am so excited to try the worlds best waffle! I can’t do sugar alcohol granulated sweeteners. Is the bulk from the sweetener needed in the recipe or will it be okay if I don’t use it and add a drop or two of monk fruit liquid sweetener?
    Thank you!

  112. Hi Libby,
    I can’t use sugar alcohols, is the bulk of the sweetener necessary for the recipe to turn out? I will add a couple of drops of monk fruit sweetener to sweeten the waffle. Can’t wait to try them!
    Thank you.

  113. I was pretty pleased with these! They did not crisp up for me but I don’t necessarily attribute that to the recipe. It does have over a stick of butter so I wasn’t expecting it to ever crisp up but we’ll see what the toaster does for the leftovers.
    One note to American readers: the recipe calls for 5 MEDIUM eggs. We often use large eggs here so this recipe only needs 4 large eggs. That may be why some makers are disappointed with the eggy taste.
    These have held me over during my trip with gestational diabetes but I can’t say I’ll be swapping my usual waffle recipe for these permanently.

  114. I used my regular waffle maker for this recipe. The batter was very thick (I did use heavy whipping cream) and would really only have made about 3 waffles, at best. However, despite the fact that I sprayed with Pam Coconut Oil Spray before cooking, the batter completely stuck to the waffle iron and I had to use a knife to scrape it from the iron.

    That said, the chunks I was able to salvage were sooooooo scrumptious! What an incredible treat…delicious!!! Any tips on how to prevent this in the future?

    1. I’m soooooo glad the chunks were delicious, despite the fact they stuck 🙁 . I’m wondering if you added enough butter to the recipe? My batter is generally medium in thickness and the butter (as it melts within the batter) makes the waffles almost non-stick. I also have a regular waffle machine (from Fly-Buys) and it makes 5. If your waffles are thick, then I also wonder if that is why they are sticking? You could even try cooking these in the frying pan too. Hope this helps.

      1. Also whipping the egg whites properly and making sure not to crush them. I made a double batch using large farm eggs, and it came out amazing, if maybe a little dry.

  115. Absolutely amazing!!!! I am truly impressed. I’m always looking for a nut free recipe so that I may share with my toddler who has a nut allergy. He absolutely loved them. I added lilly’s Dark chocolate chips to them. What a sweet treat.
    Question: could we double the recipe and bake these into muffins?

    1. Yay – my absolute favourite comments are those that involve children discovering new recipes. He might also like my Paleo pancakes. My 11 yr old makes them most Saturday before football and adds 2 tbsp cocoa to make them chocolate flavour. As for making keto waffles into muffins? I’m not sure if that would work. I am guessing, but I think they would be more successful as mini muffins than traditionally-sized muffins, purely because the eggy buttery mixture can have a tendency to “split” which isn’t a problem in waffles as they are cooked both sides, but as a large muffin, you may find it in two layers.

  116. Scott Becker says:

    I just made my second batch of these waffles after loving the first batch. This time around, I entered all the ingredients into MyFitnessPal so I could track this as one of my meals. I lightened up on the sweetener (4 tsp Eruthritol) for a 10 serving batch. I am finding that the carbs come out very high. Breakdown is as such…

    Carb 10.9g (13%)
    Fat 28.3g (78%)
    Protein 7g (9%)

    I am wondering why your recipe has the carb count so low?

    Thank you!

    1. I use cronometer.com which has all the official databases and is very accurate. I personally don’t like MPF as there are too many user-added entries and depending on the country of origin of foods, the nutrition panel may show either total or net, but it may not be clear and therefore lead to very inaccurate calculations. I also don’t include erythritol in my calculations. It is a non-absorbable carbohydrate. This may explain the variations in calculated values.

  117. Not Tony Starks says:

    I made these today; they’re about as close as you can get to normal waffles. I’m pleased!

  118. OMG this is delicious. I finally found something Keto I like. Every bread I’ve tried I have either not liked or it’s just eh. These waffles were wonderful. I cut the recipe in half since I”m the only person on Keto in my family. I also totally forgot to to separate the eggs. I noticed this after mixing all ingredients. So I whisked it before putting it in my waffle iron. It didn’t matter. They were light and fluffy and delicious with nothing but butter on them. Thank you so much for making me a happy girl.

    1. Awesome!!! And did you know these are great to freeze? You can make an entire batch then freeze the remainder in an airtight container, with a piece of baking parchment in between each waffle, then bring one out at a time and pop them in your toaster! Genius I say!

  119. Wow am really pleased with these waffles. So tasty and easy to make. I used a sandwich toaster an they came out smashingly.
    Happy happy
    Will use coconut cream next time xx

  120. Absolutely the best keto-friendly waffles ever. Thanks for sharing!

  121. I must have done something wrong because my waffles tasted like I put an egg in the waffle maker and fried it. Couldn’t eat them.

    What did I do wrong?

    1. Did you add the sweetener and vanilla? It sounds like maybe an ingredient was accidentally omitted. These are my favourite waffles by far.

  122. LOVE this recipe! Using the waffles right now as bread for a bacon chicken sandwich!!!!

  123. Thank you! This recipe is terrific. I ate mine plain (yum) and gave them to my kids with some strawberries and whipped cream and they were devoured in an instant. My middle child says these are the best waffles ever and #3’s face with the first bite was better than any words, which is great since he is my carb addict! Now I need to make a double batch and freeze them so the kids can have them before school.

  124. Jeri B. Miller says:

    The recipe calls for 125 g butter melted; how much butter is that in tsp or tbsp?

    1. Under each recipe, there are two large red buttons and you can swap between grams or cup/ounces so you can use whichever measurement system you prefer. For example 125g = 1 stick + 1 tbsp 🙂

  125. Very eggy, and not crisp at all. They were okay, but definitely not what I would consider a “waffle”. They tasted more like French toast sticks.

  126. We followed the recipe but didn’t have the positive experience others noted below. They may be ok for keto waffles, but just don’t taste like waffles…or much of anything really. We make fabulous GF waffles, and these, well, they were tolerable covered in applesauce, cinnamon & fruit. And watch your waffle iron closely b/c they cook VERY quickly.

  127. This recipe is terrible. I couldn’t even force myself to eat one bite. Very snotty, gooey consistency. Complete waste of my time and groceries!

  128. Sally McKelvy says:

    I’m often amazed at how different the reviews on the same recipe are, and I assume we are all absolutely sure that we followed it to a T. And I’m no different.

    Sooooo…these are delicious! I used heavy cream thinned just a smidge with unsweetened almond milk. Otherwise I followed it precisely.

    But fluffy? Crispy? Absolutely not. Not when cooked as my waffle iron instructed, or even twice as long. Not when I greased the iron with real butter before each batch. Not even after leaving out to cool. In fact, they were so flat that they barely retained any indentations at all! Fortunately, they are absorbent enough that the butter and keto syrup didn’t just run off.

    I made a double batch. Before I got half way through cooking them, the batter had begun to separate ..nothing that a gentle stir couldn’t fix, but unexpected.
    Because others have reported they didn’t crisp up in a toaster, I won’t hold out hope. But I’ll still try.

    Bottom line…will we eat them? Yes, definitely. As I said, they are delicious. (Possibly due to the large volume of pure vanilla extract. ?)
    Will I make them again? I dunno…I think I’ll keep looking and experimenting.
    But if nothing better pops up, yeah, I’ll probably be back.

    Thanks for your hard work and sharing your recipe.

  129. “Come see why this recipe is award-winning.”

    I have come, I have seen, I am still waiting to find out ?

    I don’t know what kind of award this recipe would win, a waffle has GOT to be crispy. And just by looking at the pictures, it looks limp and soggy, eccch! It literally looks like I could use it like a sandwich wrap or a tortilla. That’s not the sort of thing that works for a waffle. I don’t even want to try the recipe.

      1. ???☹☹agree
        Just rude!
        If you don’t have anything nice to say, but quiet. I want to make them more than ever NOW!

          I made these this morning with some skepticism, and they came out delicious! The were not crispy, but they were tasty and and my husband said to keep the recipe and make those again! That right there is a compliment. I might try this recipe as pancakes also. I will definitely be making these again.

        2. Lydia nailed it without cooking a single waffle! I just made these and her review is spot on!

          1. Hmmm… well I am in the middle of making them right now. I have zero idea what all the negative reviews are about. My waffles have turned out really well; tasty, fluffy, and well risen. Perhaps all these people who have less than desirable results haven’t beaten the whites properly, or were too heavy-handed with their folding technique. Either way, I’m more than happy with my result – I only wish I could attach a photo to show you all!

      2. Theresa timmons says:

        I love your response. I’m new to keto. I just made. The. Waffles, they are delicious. A little. Limp. But. I love. It. I ate. 3. Is that too much. Also. Used. Walden farms. No sugar. Syrup. So good

    1. KetoCrazed says:

      The “waffles” ARE soggy. They are eggy and have a coarse texture once bitten into. This recipe doesn’t live up to the hype.

  130. I’m new to Keto, and am going through the food list. I’ve noticed in some recipes (like this one) milk is listed as an ingredient, but it is on the Foods to Avoid list? I know for this recipe you can use cream, which is approved, but then why even list milk as a possibility? I am just trying to wrap my head around what I can and cannot eat. Thanks!

    1. Yes, you may use cream. The problem with all the “allowed” or “avoid” lists is that those lists generally list what is higher in carbs so should be avoided in large quantities. So you may use milk, it should just be in a small volume or calculated into your daily macros. What is important is having low enough carbs to be in nutritional ketosis.

    2. Sorry but I can’t find where to ask a question or even start a new comment. My question is when you say a waffle do you mean each quarter of the waffle or the entire waffle

  131. These are definitely the best KETO waffles I’ve tried! Emphasis on the keto, because anyone attempting a low carb waffle just needs to come to terms with the fact that you are not going to achieve the texture of a traditional flour-based waffle. You’re just not, so adjust your expectations and appreciate these for what they are! I found the texture to be both fluffier, less grainy, and less “eggy” than other low carb recipes I’ve tried. Swerve was my sweetener of choice and the amount called for in this recipe, combined with the vanilla, gave them a good level of sweetness. My husband and I enjoyed them with a little bit of diced strawberries and a side of bacon. This will be my go-to weekend recipe – thank you!!

    1. YAY – the voice of reason! I totally agree. So many “products” we were once used to, are manufactured and designed with all added nasties to make things crisp, crunchy, or chewy etc. Once we understand that keto alternatives made with real food (not keto “products” which in some cases are just as bad as the originals) then we open up a whole new world of delicate, natural flavours and textures.

    2. I personally got flat and soggy waffles from this, no hint of crispness despite cooking longer also. Any tips?

      I followed the recipe and made sure not to beat the air out of egg whites

      1. Cook as long as you can in the waffle maker and then pop into the toaster 😉

  132. I am allergic to Coconut. It is the only thing I am allergic to. All other nuts are fine. Almond four… can it be substituted and if so is the quantity different?

  133. 2 stars
    Are you sure it’s 125 gr of butter? A whole cup? I just made this recepy and it’s very greasy. And on the vídeo the butter is never mentioned

    1. Yes, it is definitely 125g of butter, and yes it is in the video at the beginning when all the ingredients are shown 🙂 If your waffles were greasy, it may require you to add a little more coconut flour.

    2. It is 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon n of butter.

    3. 4 stars
      It appears to be 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon of butter per the U.S. measurements.

      These were amazing! I made sure to split the egg yolk and whites and followed the instructions. Only thing I did differently was used 4T of eyrthritol and 1T of Splenda. Also used HWC instead of milk. Then used sugar free syrup it was so yummy! Keep whisking the mix to keep it fluffy while you cook the waffles ❤️

    Not a fan when they come out hot. But a day later after being in the refrigerator they are the closest thing to my mothers home made bread pudding. Great for a sweet snack. One waffle without anything else quenches and sweet cravings.

    Absolutely wonderful change for breakfast. Was not wanting eggs and bacon (again) and I’m a very picky eater so decided, I’m going for this! I’m not a cook by any means! No kitchen skills so I’ve been really challenging myself! This was very easy and quite tasty! The only thing was that I only got 3 waffles instead of 5. Maybe I did something wrong?!?

  137. 5 stars
    All the negative comments just baffle me. My guess is that there are a lot of people out there that just can’t cook, or follow directions in a recipe. These waffles are one of the best “keto” breakfast foods I’ve encountered. If you are complaining about them being eggy, you are doing something wrong. If you are complaining about them not being crisp, well when you find a “keto” waffle recipe where they come out crisp AND good and low carb, let us know.
    In the mean time, I’ll continue making this recipe and enjoying these low carb waffles.

    1. I agree. Not eggy at all. Best Keto recipe that I’ve made!

  138. Eric Michael Richards says:

    4 stars
    Awesome flavor. Not too eggy as some say. But as someone else said, more of a french toast then a waffle. I am a big waffle guy and now on Keto. I realize, I will not have the same taste as a real waffle on Keto but these are a good substitute. Got to go in it with the idea, these will not get crispy. I tried cooking longer. I tried toasting after. Just go with what they are ….. great tasting french toast without the bread. Yummy. I will do them again. 4 stars not 5 since described as crispy which should be changed.

  139. Pretty good 🙂 They were a bit eggy but keep in mind the recipe calls for 5 medium eggs, I should have used 4. Added a bit extra coconut flour after the first two and it fixed that problem. Added a bit of raw cocoa powder too and they were great

  140. 5 stars
    These are fabulous! I added a bit of banana flavoring to the last batter – what more is there to say! Thanks for the great recipe.

    Turned out great for me! I was looking for something low carb that wasn’t the egg-banana pancakes and found this recipe. I used the flour I had on hand (cup4cup gf) and sweetened with pure cane sugar. I folded in some blueberries after the egg whites and cooked these up like pancakes. When cooked through they are the beautiful golden-brown you’d want in a pancake! I can see these beating made savory with bacon, ham and/or cheese folded in without the vanilla or sugar. Yum!

    I was craving waffles, and my beau brought over some fresh raspberries. I made these exactly per the recipe, and they were delicious. We topped them with some whole yogurt, some whipped cream, and those fresh raspberries. Fabulous! Better than wheat flour and sugar waffles any day. And I’m so tired of almond four, it was great to find your coconut flour recipe. I use a lot of your recipes – Thank you!!

  143. 5 stars
    Followed this recipe to the letter and it’s a delish! Not eggy, light and crispy. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes 🙂

  144. 3 stars
    Well, after trying this recipe with 4 LG eggs instead of 5 medium, I’m not terribly impressed. The batter only made 3 waffles vs the 5 it was supposed to make and like someone else said, the batter began to separate. I followed the recipe other than using 1 less egg since I used lg eggs and I also used less sweetener. After trying a different recipethat essentially called for a tbsp sweetener per waffle, I knew it would be too much for my tastes.

    The waffles did come out looking like waffles, but they were so eggy that they were more like omelettes with coconut flour inside. I mean, yeah, these are keto and not gonna be like the real thing, but as far as consistency and density, they are probably the closest thing. Flavor-wise, just too eggy. I would give this a 3.5 rating, but couldn’t give it a 4, so had to go with 3.

    But thank you for this option. It sounds like some people don’t think they are too eggy, so at least it’s a great option for them. I appreciate that you took the time to experiment and come up with something fairly close.

    A very healthy winner for the boy who eats like a sparrow

    Thank you

    1. Oh, Geraldine, I always say, it is the compliments I get from kids that are my favourite. I absolutely LOVE children finding new healthy recipes here that tickle their tastebuds 🙂

  146. Hi, absolutley love these waffles! I am wondering about how many servings your recipe makes though, because it says 1 serving is 1 waffle. I have a mini waffle maker, so I’m trying to figure out about how many I should have.

    1. The reciep makes 5 waffles for 5 servings. if you have a mini waffle maker, count how many waffles you managed to make then divide by 5.

      1. Great, thank you so much!

    I’ve been trying to find a good recipie on waffles. my 9 yearold boy, he is quite pickie when it comes to waffles, pancakes and such. But these where approved and he asked if he could get the leftovers for school lunch.! Oh the joy in mamas heart, one battle down, probably a million to go! Bring it on.. greetings from Norway

    I’ve been reading some of the comments, and honestly, it’s not the recipe that is the problem. It’s the person making the recipe and their perception of what it “should” be. What they are not thinking about is the fact this is low carb cooking and nothing will ever be the same as if you used regular flour.

    My husband balked at Keto for a good year until he was “forced” to follow it due to his diabetes. One of the reasons was he “hated” the bready things that were made keto. I gave him nothing of the sorts during his first month. Then gradually worked in sweets. Last week I made Keto Pizza and he LIKED it. I made a microwave cake for him last night and he LIKED it. I made your waffles this morning and he LIKED them. He likes these foods enough to keep eating because he didn’t try to substitute immediately. He just didn’t have it.

    As for these waffles, sure, they are soft when you take them off the iron. BUT when you get them on your plate and they cool a little, they firm up! We actually made sausage and cheese sandwiches with this recipe and it was excellent. You get a 5 star rating and my appreciation for sharing your recipes with those of us who really need them in our life. Thank you so much!

    1. My kids loved them and wanted more. If that doesn’t rate 5x stars, I’m not sure what would!

    2 I loved them, too. Winning all round 🙂

    3. I wonder if those people who experienced ‘flat” waffles had either not beaten the whites well enough, or were too heavy-handed with the folding of mixtures. Or both? Either way, mine were perfect.

    4. I added about a tablespoon of sugar free maple syrup to the yolk/four mixture when I added in the vanilla, mainly because that was all I had left in the bottle and I didnt fancy squabbling kids complaining that one got more than the other… Anyway, it worked a treat and provided enough of that maple syrup flavour that they were happy to eat them just like that. Winning again!

    1. Awesome Sarah, thanks for the brilliant feedback. We love them too, and my kids even make them at the weekends. Have you tried the pizza waffles yet? Really great when entertaining kids because you can make the pizza waffles ahead of time, then just get the kids to add their own favourite toppings. Guaranteed to be eaten because they chose what toppings to include.

  150. oh my god! Best, best, best ever! Mine turned out absolutely fantastic! Thank you, thank you

    My picky eaters ate them with appetite! I myself like them much more then the traditional Belgian waffles. The only thing I did differently is substitute 3 tbsp of milk( I didn’t have any) for 2 tbsp of ricotta and 1 tbsp of water ( for the coconut flour)
    They were moist and rich and topped with small amt of Canadian Maple Syrup!

  152. 2 stars
    Eggy. It can’t help but be eggy because of all of the egg whites. Not crispy. Baking them to dark brown helped a little with crispy. Oil on my lips and tongue due to more than 1/2 cup of butter. Needs salt. I’m going to try reheating in the oven to see if they get crisp. I have a double Waring Belgian waffle maker and the batter came spurting out if I filled more than 1/2 way, but it also gave me waffles with holes.

    I wouldn’t say a waste of ingredients, but I probably will not make them again. It was a fun experiment.

  153. Omg I finally scrolled down far enough to leave a comment! After scrolling down far enough to finally find the recipe. Am I the only one that just wants the recipe without a whole life story to go along with it???? This is actually a good one if you can make it to the end.

    1. I read your comment earlier. Came home and made this it was awesome. This is my go to waffles.

  157. I wanted to add Whey isolate protein powder to mine. Would you have a solid measurement to add to this recipe that I could use?

    1. I’m afraid that would be another recipe entirely and further recipe testing and development. I don’t use whey protein so can’t even give a “best guess”. Has anyone else here tried this and give some handy suggestions?

    2. 5 stars
      I made these today and added 1 scoop of whey protein powder and added 1 extra tablespoon of cream. They were great. The whey protein I used was Amazon Elements Grass Fed 100% Whey Protein powder in natural vanilla flavor. I would estimate the scoop is about 2 tablespoons. There is 25 grams of protein and 2 carbs in 1 scoop.

  158. 5 stars
    These are amazing and I love them. After making them a few times I may have discovered why they are not so good for some people. If you over-whip the egg whites, the mixture separates and becomes a bit eggy. But whipping the whites just right as you would for a meringue, and they are perfect.
    I only used 1 tbsp of erythritol as 4 would be way too much for my pallet, and they are perfect. I also add a pinch of salt.

  159. This recipe doesn’t make waffles…. it makes sweet, eggy, crepes with a waffle imprint. Please don’t instruct me on how I did it wrong, I am a pastry chef, but my wife wanted keto waffles for Mother’s Day. These aren’t anything close to the “best”. That’s just a word to get the recipe at the top of a google search and to make money through page visits.

    1. Just came across this recipe and this comment and am wondering why there are so many angry individuals these days. Also, I’m not up on this “like” thing that everyone is talking about but if this is how this lady makes a little coin I can’t really see why this is so bad.

      People lets take a step back and stop being so angry. If you don’t like the recipe or thought or idea or whatever just move on. We are becoming sad little creatures. At 2 AM the individual that posted this comment obviously was venting and has bigger issues then a recipe he did not think was up to his high standards. Let’s get back to the old days when we actually said kind words to people and praised them for actually sticking there neck out to do something unique when most people were satisfied living their mediocre lives…oh and if you were such a great pastry chef why not submit a better way to do this recipe and let the court of public opinion decide…let’s try to work to be kind to each other rather than tear each other down…it will make the world a better place.

        Thank you, Alex, for such a lovely comment to read this morning. It amazes me each and every day that people cannot be kind. My mother always taught me “if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing”. It also amazes me how the people who want everything here on the website free (and it is my absolute pleasure to do that) are the same ones who don’t like the advertising occasionally. I too vote for kindness, making the world a better place ❤️

        Great comment Alex. We can say the truth without being crude and rude.Ex. Not as crispy as I would like.
        And I love how you suggest how the chef would be more productive trying to find a way to make them crisper without stomping on the poster. I think it’s easier to be nasty to a person online than in person, isn’t it?

        Well said everyone is so busy putting people down these days its very sad. x

        1. Criticism is not being mean or nasty. There was no name calling, the recipe is just not good. If that offends the blog owner, grow a backbone or make a better recipe. Problem solved…..

          1. The above poster was RUDE. If he did not like the recipe, fine. He could have left it at that. But to make an ugly swipe at the owner of this page is low. If he’s a pastry chef, then why didn’t he know the ingredients weren’t going to produce the end product he wanted? Why not propose an alternative? His comments just not helpful at all.

      4. Hi. I’m new here and just want to say I agree wholeheartedly! I don’t understand why people just want to tear others down or how they could still possibly feel good about themselves afterwards. When I was younger, I was taught to treat others the way I would want to be treated. I can’t imagine that this person would want to be talked to this way if the situation was flipped and it was their recipe.

        Great comment Alex.
        I was half expecting the pastry chef to add his own Keto version but alas. He was just someone with a lot of wind to blow out of other peoples sails. As a pastry chef that he is, id like him to step up and create his own Keto waffle recipe for us to try!

      These were not eggy in our opinion. They were a hit in my household! These produce pancake-y waffles. Light and fluffy. We just wanted something yummy. Didnt matter if they were crispy or not. Thanks so much for sharing this!!! And ignore the angry and negative people. If you make money off of helping others find great keto recipes, then it is very well deserved.

    3. 4 stars
      Your review only has me questioning your pastries at this point. It comes down to this…if you want a waffle that tastes and resembles real waffles, then make a damn waffles recipe. Expectations make all the difference and I came into the making of this recipe knowing I was not making/eating real waffles but a keto (grain free) version of that. I must say I am quite impressed with this waffle for what it is and will be making it again.

    Taste was 9/10 very nice! They seemed to burn before crisping for me but held their shape well even when drenched with keto syrup!! Great recipe enjoyed by my family for a change from eggs and bacon!!! Thank you!

    First of all, I liked the waffles. They didnt get crispy for me either but if I had the patience to put them in the toaster after I bet they would. They are made with 5 eggs- I dont know why everyone expects them to be like a traditional waffle. I just started keto- to be honest the amount of butter many keto recipes have makes me nervous! These were tasty, I spread a little ghee on top and monk fruit maple syrup.

  164. 5 stars
    I’ve made these a couple times, and they are really a lovely substitute for traditional waffles. I’ve tried other keto recipes for pancakes and waffles and they seem to come out grainy and blah, but these come out fluffy and light. I personally cut back the sweetener because keto sweeteners are too strong for me (roughly 2 tsp), but yea, these are great. Even my 19 month old will gladly eat them. 🙂

  165. Hi..My husband is lactoce intolerance, beside of butter, any other option to use?

    1. So your husband can tolerate butter? Sorry, it’s not quite clear. If this is the case, just omit the milk/cream and these will still turn out great.

    2. My roommate is lactose intolerant and she can have butter but it still somethings upsets her stomach so I will make ghee out of the butter first. You can also buy ghee from the supermarket. If your replacing ghee with butter just be sure to google if you need to use less first as butter is milk proteins plus fat while ghee is just the fat. I’ve done 1:1 before and my baked goods ended up not setting because there as too much oil, so you may need a little less?

    I never leave reviews but after scrolling through most of these I decided it was time.

    If I could rate these waffles higher than 5 stars I totally would. They are effing AMAZING! They’re so delicious if I hadn’t made them myself I wouldn’t believe they’re low carb.

    I’m not really sure what went wrong with everyone else’s waffles but mine were perfect. I used a mini waffle maker which served 11 because I over poured but I’m certain it can stretch to 12. Due to the excess amount of servings, I shared with others and they enjoyed them as well. I also froze a few, popped them in the toaster oven tonight, and they were just as great.

    When tracking my macros I found that my numbers did not match but that’s because I use a different nutrition calculator as well as different products than the originator. Research is everything- don’t rely on automated nutrition entries or expect everyone to use the same products.

    I’ll definitely be using this recipe again but tweaking it slightly for my next (smaller) batch.

    1. 5 stars
      Oh, Valerie, this is so nice to read this morning. What a wonderfully helpful and kind review. How brilliant that you managed to make 12 mini-waffles and you even managed to freeze some leftovers! I know I am biased, but I do think these are simply the best waffles – ever! I wish I could add a 10-star rating option for you 😉

  168. Nalani Hashimoto says:

    I just made these, no additions, ingredient per ingredient and OMG! these were amazing. I’ve used a lot of recipes for keto style bread, pancakes and now waffles. This was by far the one that tasted like what it was supposed to taste like. I totally get why its Award Winning. Definitely a winner in my house. Thank you so much. I even messaged another Keto friend the recipe. You Rock!

    Hi is it possible to use coconut cream instead of milk or heavy cream? Just wondering if it would come out the same?

    1. 5 stars
      You could omit the cream altogether if you prefer. It makes for a lighter waffle. Coconut cream may work, it would make it more flavoured of coconut however rather than vanilla.

      1. 5 stars
        I used double cream plain yoghurt iso milk and it worked perfectly. Also I added a third teaspoon xanthan gum to see if the waffles would be less floppy. It was soft and floppy when freshly made but firmed up a few minutes later with a slightly crispy exterior but still not like wheatflour waffles. Toasting just made it floppy again. I loved it though and sincerely hope before anyone else thinks of criticizing that they offer a solution or just keep it to themselves.

  172. 5 stars
    I’m eating them as we speak (oho, I had 2 servings).
    They are delicious.

    But we are going away for 5 days. When making them the day before, how long will they be OK in an cool box (electric) in the car? We will be staying in hostels, so don’t know if they have a fridge.
    I can put the cooler on in the car and inside.

    Thank you for another awesome recipe.

    Brigitte.

    1. 5 stars
      I would keep these cool in a fridge for 3 days and frozen for up to 2 months. They are a great alternative to sugary waffle, can be used as a quick and easy bread alternative and there are even keto cheesey pizza waffles too.

    I’ve never made waffles before. Pre-keto it wasn’t something I ate, but I recently bought a mini waffle maker to make cheese waffles, and now I tried these and they are fantastic. I just made a batch of 9 mini waffles. They are delicious and fluffy and will definitely be part of my weekly meal prep. Will be posting on the gram and tagging you! My husband, the non-keto chef, approved!

  174. Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour? Would it be the same amount? I want to make this recipe today but only have almond flour and I don’t want to make a trip into town just for coconut flour.

    1. Did you end up using it? That’s all I have as well and curious to how they turned out if you did.

    I used date sugar and 2% lactose free milk and these came out so yummy with just the right amount of sweetness.
    I used an electric sandwich maker bc my waffle maker is stupid. They were so fluffy; I think I’ll try stuffing some with a little berry compote ?

  176. Karen Beattie says:

    When i entered the recipe in carb manager it comes up to 12.3 carbs how did you come up with your count?

  177. I was so disappointed. I made the recipe and waited with great anticipation while my waffles cooked. They raised and when I took them out of the waffle maker they deflated. They were soft and spongy, more like pancakes, and tasty slightly eggy. I love waffles that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I did not leave out any ingredients. I wonder if beating the egg whites with cream of tartar would have helped?

    I’m not having much luck with Keto breakfast pastries. The only thing that I’ve had turn out really good is the biscotti I made.

    1. 5 stars
      These are delicious! I am a type 1 diabetic and made these for my family this morning. The kids (1 & 6 yrs old) ate two as I was making the rest. They smelled so good and taste perfect. They are thinner than typical waffles, even with the whipped egg whites, but it doesn’t matter at all because they taste so good! I used Thrive’s Switch which is a monk fruit & erythritol blend and experienced no sweetener aftertaste. Thank you SO very much for a low carb recipe the whole family can enjoy!

      1. I forgot to mention that my little guy is dairy free so I used salted ghee in place of the butter & full fat coconut milk in place of the cream and it worked out great!

    Hubby and I are one week into keto and doing great. Found this gem while hunting for chaffle recipes and knew we had to try it. Our waffle maker is large so this made a little under 4 full-size waffles, which was perfectly fine with us since we aren’t big on leftovers. Topped with MORE butter and some sugar free “syrup,” these were a delightful, decadent brunch for the two of us.
    Yes, they’re a touch eggy and yes, they are labor-intensive. Yes, they’re floppy instead of crisp. Still, way better than expected and definitely worth repeating every now and then.
    Thank you for a delicious recipe! Gonna go share now.

  180. 5 stars
    I LOVE waffles and never thought once my husband and I started on the Keto way of eating that I would be able to have them.
    These are so good. One waffle is perfect with whipped cream and berries. Of course coffee. I prefer crispy waffles and my waffle maker always browns the bottom if I do not pay attention to it telling me when they are ready. So i took each section out, turned them over to brown a bit. These are so good. So now it will be a part of our weekend breakfasts. Something to look forward to.

      Yay, a mega win for the best keto waffles. I am so glad this recipe has become part of your weekend ritual, low-carb and keto living is so luxurious and tasty huh?

    Amazing waffles for keto, ive tried some other recepies previously and they didnt compare at all! I do substitute coconut flower and use almond flower instead and they come out amazing! With a topping of bacon and some mapple syrup trully yummy!

  182. I used Stevia and Stevia has 4g of carbs in a teaspoon. 4 tablespoons makes this have 36g of carbs just from that. How could the recipe only make it 2.5g of net carbs? The coconut flour also has 8g of net carbs in 4 tablespoons.

  183. Confused by the quantity of butter. 125 grams equals 1/2 cup, but when you use the recipe converter on this page, it shows 1 cup plus 1 T. Which it is please?

    1. Not sure how you arrived at your measurements but if you Google grams butter to Tbsp you get 8.81 Tbsp. Looks like they just rounded up to 9 Tbsp.

    Omg, I am Norwegian and I thought the days of eating vaffler were over now that i am eating paleo/primal keto for my health. I see lots of waffle recipes out there, but they are for belgian waffles, which are crunchier and more firm. I wanted a waffle that was more Norwegian, which is texture like a pancake, so that i could put cream cheese and berries on top, or just plain butter and cheese. These were fabulous!! To give them a slightly more norwegian taste, i added a few drops of lemon juice and a teaspoon of cardamom. Thank you sooooo much!!

    1. 5 stars
      This makes me so happy, to have made a waffle that is true to your Norwegian vaffler. I absolutely LOVE the idea of lemon juice and cardamom, I’m trying that flavour combination next time I make these. Have a fabulous day Jannike! 🙂

  185. 5 stars
    OMG!!! These tasted better than regular waffles! So glad I stumbled onto this recipe! Hubby is a carb addict with diabetes and he LOVES them. He hates anything low carb or flour less but these won him over. TYVM for this great recipe!

  186. 3 stars
    First time around they we’re extremely eggy…thats nasty. But so are scrambled eggs and I did to this recipe what I did with the scrambled eggs – i used sour cream and buttermilk insted of normal cream. For some reason sour cream equal out the nasty eggy taste and then they became alright. 2 part sour cream 1 part buttermilk

    The consistency improved with this because when adding more acid I switched to baking soda instead and THAT helped with the soggy part. They got a way better surface….

    I agree with the pastry chef…. there are plenty of ways to really improve this recipe….

      5 stars
      How much baking soda per serving did you use? Same amount as the baking powder?

      I’m thinking I could just use sour cream and regular cream with just a smidge of lemon juice in it. Do you think that would work?

      To make the outside caramelize (and hence “get crispier”), I’m thinking of either using allulose for the sweetener, or an inulin based brown sugar substitute (Just like sugar brown), as both of those will actually caramelize.

      Any thoughts on using a waffle flavoring? Someone is sending me some for free.

        These were great, however mine turned out a grainy texture. Any advice?

    Great Keto option for waffles! They were not crispy, but light, fluffy and delicious! I did not think they tasted eggy at all, and next time would even use less sweetener since we ate them with sugar free syrup and didn’t really need all that sweetener. Thank you for a great recipe that fits our new lifestyle!

      Can’t locate where to rate so hijacking your post Laurid.
      I would love to know where I went wrong as mine did not turn out as described in others comments. I made enough for 2 servings. I was using my brand new waffle maker.
      Lots of the mixture escaped out of the maker. The waffles were tasty but rather limp.
      Any suggestions from those more versed in waffle making?

      1. 5 stars
        Not sure what went wrong with yours, but I’ve done there’s a couple of times now. If the whites are feet too much it will cost them to overflow in the waffle maker. If there’s not enough flour for some reason, they tend to not rise up enough. These are just my observations

      2. Courtney Williams says:

      These waffles tasted great and had good texture. They are a soft waffle not crispy on the outside at all but flavor is great. I would recommend cutting sweetner by 1/2 to 2 tblsp as they were too sweet for me (and I love sweets). I made some in belgium waffle maker and some in my mini dash waffle maker borh turned out good. The mini one will make great strawberry short cakes:). Thanks for the recipe!!

    Thank you, thank you. My daughter (on medical keto) loved these. We’re not familiar with traditional waffles, so as far as we’re concerned anyway they qualify for best ever. My expectations were definitely managed by the negative reviews but our waffles weren’t eggy and we had no problem with them being flexible. They’re going to be a Sunday staple in this house.

      Wow Saibh, this makes me so happy to know your daughter has found a new recipe to love. If you love these waffles, I bet you will love chaffles too. There are so many sweet and savoury recipes in my free cookbook. Take a look at how to cook chaffles.

    Made these today with my Dash mini waffle maker (makes a perfect 4” waffle for breakfast sandwiches). I used Allulose for the sweetener, so they weren’t too sweet. I also added 10 drops of OOO flavors keto French toast. Made these waffles taste like a far less sweet McGriddle. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. Using two tablespoons of batter per waffle, it made 14 mini waffles. Perfect for hubby’s breakfast sandwiches for the week.

    Thank you so much!

    Made these today, March 16, 2020 and they were great! The recipe is a little involved but well worth the results. The only thing I found was it only made 2 1/4 waffles, so maybe I filled my waffle maker too full. They were really good! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I was so so impressed by these. Fabulous! We did pancakes. So glad to not use almond flour (so not a fan).
    BUT I’m so confused by your amounts. You’re saying 2.5 net carbs per serving (carbs minus the fiber), but 5 servings and the whole things is 4.5 carbs? Wouldn’t it be 12 net carbs according to your calculations? However, I put it in Carb Manager and I comes up as 9 g of net carbs for the whole recipe. Please advise 🙂

        I searched all of the comments and no one referred to this question. I only buy large eggs. For the price these days, mediums are a waste of money. So how many large eggs would be equal to the 5 medium? I’m printing this recipe and giving it a try. I lost 35 pounds on Keto and maintained for 2 1/2 years. Broke my ankle and was in a rehab for a month so you have to eat what they give you and when I went home I couldn’t stand to cook for over 6 months. I gained it all back. Keto works but I got bored with the lack of options in recipes. Having waffles would be a plus. I never liked the almond flour version.

    This was a game-changer! I’ve been searching for the perfect coconut flour waffle recipe. I’ve tried so many and some were too eggy, others too dense, a few were too gritty, etc etc. This one? This one was amazing! Even my lacto-ovo vegetarian teenager was a fan & wants to put it in the regular dinner rotation! A miracle!! Light and fluffy – dare I say almost indistinguishable from the original wheat flour variety. I added about a cup of whole blueberries to the batter right at the end and gently folded in. Absolutely divine! Thank you!!

    Came out totally flat and rubbery, I ended up adding twice as much flour (I used almond flour) and they still tasted eggy and rubbery. I did have to make a few substitutions, but even so I would rate this 1-star because I want a user-friendly recipe and one that can accept substitutions and creativity. This recipe requires messing up three bowls (egg yolks, whites, dry goods), requires making merangue, and apparently needs to be followed precisely. Not something I’ll be making again: too persnickety for something that doesn’t even taste good.

      Hey there Danielle, I’m sorry to read of your recipe predicament. If you used almond flour, I’m afraid you didn’t make my recipe! If you are new to low-carb and keto you may be unaware that coconut flour and almond flour are NOT interchangeable and require quite a lot of recipe development to get the ratio of flour, liquid and protein to be correct. With most of my recipes, I welcome “substitutions and creativity” but using the recipe as stated should always be your starting point. You may wish to read The Ultimate Guide To Low-Carb Flours which explains this further. So yes, I am “pernickety” where flours are concerned, as you discovered, it makes all the difference between a recipe that is a success (this is the most popular waffle recipe on the site) and those that fail.

      Seriously?

      You’re giving it 1 star because you didn’t follow the recipe, and it didn’t work?

      Of course it wasn’t crispy with almond flour. Almond flour doesn’t go crispy.

      It’s like saying “the recipe called for milk, but I used chicken stock instead, and it wasn’t very creamy”

      In the history of unfair reviews, this is one of the worst I’ve seen.

    So I made these and they came out ok. They are not firm very saggy. They do hold together. They are not light and fluffy. I’ve been eating keto for 3 years but I’ve always used almond flour. I am trying to stay away from nuts so I decided to try coconut flour version. I was worried when I saw all the butter. I think that is why they came out so rubbery. They tasted ok. But usually with my keto waffles I don’t need to add anything to make them sweet. The syrup is enough. Now with that said I would omit the butter. Use—-
    1/3 cup coconut flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum optional, 1 cup coconut cream unsweetened or coconut cream and a little water, 2 Tablespoons coconut oil, 3 eggs, Mix it all together. Let it sit!!!! Stir each time you make another waffle. Use a 1/3 cup measure to pour it out on the griddle.

    Used half N half because I didn’t have cream. Very tasty!

    These waffles turned out so fluffy! As some reviewers have mentioned they do taste slightly “eggy”, but I don’t mind that flavor. I have Celiac and follow a lower-carb eating style, so I’m always looking for delicious recipes like this.

    I used erythritol with monk fruit for the granulated sweetener. I made (and immediately ate) 2 servings. It was enough to make just under 5 mini waffles. I used salted butter, and it was perfect. Event though I was rough folding the yolk mixture into the whipped egg whites it still turned out fluffy! I’d recommend putting a little less of the mixture into the waffle iron than you think you need because the heat seems to cause the bubbles to expand quite a bit.

    I’ll definitely be making these again!

        I did follow the recipe. But I did not have heavy cream. I had extra creamy Oat milk. Would that have been a difference! They were not light, fluffy or crunchy. They were flat and rubbery. Though with a little monk fruit maple syrup and some strawberries they tasted ok. But like others have said a lot of work for a disappointing turn out. I did whip the egg whites till firm, they were beautiful. I folded them carefully. But got a soggy limp waffle. What could I have done differently?

        1. 5 stars
          It was the oat milk substitution. It has a completely different fat and protein profile than heavy whipping cream so the keto waffle batter would have been a little soggy PLUS needed extra cooking. Both of these factors would make your waffles not light and fluffy. It takes a long time to develop these recipes, and I completely understand when you have to replace substitute an ingredient but the end result will be very different I’m afraid.

          Why are you saying you followed the recipe with you didn’t?

    I might try these, but one look at the fat content and it seems to me that you are changing carbs for fat. Not a good exchange in my book just to call them “KETO”. You’ll be skinny, but you’ll have heart disease! haha!

    Not awful, Not amazing
    I followed the recipe precisely, only decreasing the sweetener to 2T (very sweet), and I can’t say this is the one recipe that would end my search for a low-carb waffle. They are “eggy” and I was not surprised by that. I did add some cinnamon to the last of the batter and that was nice. Kind of feel bad using all that butter (was hoping it would make up or overcome the egginess) in something I didn’t end up loving, haha. I wonder if some waffle irons are better for this recipe than others?

      Thank you for your honest review. I think there is a vast difference in the brands of coconut flour we all use. Some brands are able to “mop up” butter better than others. Maybe next time, add an additional tablespoon or two.

    OMG Libby, I’m just in love with this recipe, I used less butter than the recipe ask and this still fluffy and delicious. I wish I could post the picture. You make my day thank you!

    I’m accustomed to being disappointed by keto recipes, so I was not expecting these waffles to be as good as they are. Super super satisfying. I only added about half the egg white, so I didn’t find them “eggy” like some of the other reviewers did. For the milk and cream, I used two tablespoons of canned coconut milk and two tablespoons of sour cream. I also added nutmeg. Highly recommended.

      Can you freeze these waffles and then toast them up to enjoy later?

      1. 5 stars
        Yes, you can freeze these waffles. Place the cooked waffles on a wire rack and wait for them to be cool and stopped steaming. Then place in an airtight container, with a layer of baking parchment between each waffle. When you want to enjoy a waffle, simply remove 1 or 2 from the freezer and toast, fry, microwave or pop them back in the waffle maker to reheat. They’re also delicious served cold as a sweet sandwich bread with cream cheese and berries inside.

    AAHHHHHMMMMMAAAAZZZZZIIIIIIINNNGGGGG!!!!!!!!!! Seriously for all the haters out there smh – IT WILL NEVER be the same, because it’s NOT the same, we are looking for similar alternative. I have been following a low carb lifestyle for almost 3 years now. This is the first keto recipe that I have found that even remotely comes close to the real deal. It is a tad too coconutty for my preference, however, with SF maple syrup I couldn’t taste to coconut flavor anymore. (They’re really good with SF choc. chips too!) I mean even my 11 year old boy, who usually has regular waffles, likes this recipe. Thank you VERY much for sharing the love!

      Oh wow MKLyon, I love this! I totally agree. Low-carb and keto recipes will NEVER be the same as regular ultra-processed junk food (because that’s what they are in reality) that has been “formulated” to be as addictive as possible (yes, it’s true sadly). These bad boys are so much better. I am absolutely thrilled your son loves them as much as he does, that is a real win in my book. Thank you for such a fabulous review today 🙂

    I like the sound of your PRO 4-week course, however I am dairy-free, can you accommodate a dairy-free keto diet?

      AMAZING!! These waffles are so good I feel guilty eating them! I love waffles so I have tried just about all of the keto-friendly recipes out there. Some were okay, some were horrible, some were good, BUT, as with many keto recipes I have tried, they were good…for being keto friendly. With this recipe there is no dot.dot.dot……they are GOOD! I gracefully bow down to you My Waffle Highness….my respect and admiration you have won 🙂

    I am new to keto and this is the first “baked good” that I have made fora ketogenic diet. It was really good! I ate it with some crushed berries and chopped Brazil nuts on top, with a side of bacon. Will definitely make it again! 🥳

    What is considered a portion for these waffles?

    1. 5 stars
      The suggested serving size is 1 waffle, however, many readers enjoy 2 but cut back on the berries and cream to cut back on the optional extra carbs.

        Is 1 Mini 4 inch waffle 1 serving size? Thanks

          I tried this recipe as stated and used a quarter cup measure. It would spill over the sides a bit of my mini waffle maker. I got 9 waffles. If you use a scant 1/4 cup measure it should come out to 2 waffles per serving. It does not look like it would be enough to make a waffle but the batter expands quite a bit during cooking. It is quite sweet but yummy. I did not do the coco version.

            OMG! I’m in love. I’ve been trying really hard to stick to a clean KETO diet but I have a problem with artificial sweeteners, that is until I tried Mink Fruit by Splenda. So I made this recipe in my new little DASH waffle maker. I got 8 waffles, 6 to freeze and 2 to eat this morning. I used a level 1/4 measuring cup and it was perfect. Since I use a 1/2 cup of batter in my regular waffle maker for 1 serving I feel like 2 Dash size is one serving. This recipe will be on my meal menu.. YUMMY!!!

            Hey there, Annette, this is brilliant! Finding a low-carb sweetener that you like is the first big step to success. And keeping keto waffles in the freezer is perfect for busy mornings and bus weekends. Way to go!

    I tried these for the first time today, and I have to say they are amazing! They have such a great flavour, I didn’t even bother with the sugar-free maple syrup that I bought for them!! My waffle maker is a mini one, so my plan for breakfast this week is 2 mini waffles with a sausage patty between them – the perfect breakfast sandwich! Thanks for such a simple, tasty recipe.

    I’m anxious to make these, but I I wonder if anyone has tried this recipe with a cast iron waffle maker? All the low-carb recipes we’ve tried so far have made a sticky mess, which I’d rather avoid creating again. 😉

    Hi! I would love to try these, as I can’t have gluten and am trying to cut back on carbs.
    My question is how many waffles does this make? My waffle maker is quite big. Bigger than my open hand (my hands are quite large for a woman). I don’t necessarily need to fill the waffle maker, but am curious if this makes one waffle or more? I don’t know if it’s easier, but how big of a waffle does this make?
    I look forward to trying this, but it doesn’t sound like a ton so I will have to make more than one batch to freeze.
    Thank you!

      Hi EllieMae, this recipe serves 5 medium-sized waffles, so you will have to see how many waffles it makes in your own machine then adjust the nutrition accordingly. Alternatively, you can just scoop 1/5 of the mixture into the centre of your [eafl id=”35890″ name=”Waffle maker large” text=”waffle maker”] (enough for a medium waffle) and it will only half fill your machine to make a regular, not large, waffle. (I hope that makes sense).

        Delish! Had to adjust the amount of batter in the waffle maker due to the excess that dripped out. These were light and fluffy and didn’t need any syrup! Made them on my Belgian waffle maker and my mini. Funny thing, I may have used 1 more egg than I needed because I miscounted. (I quadrupled the recipe for freezing) and 20 eggs was a lot to separate! Will certainly make more when these run out.

        I’ve been low carb for years and I gave up on substitutions for bread. I Dont enjoy most keto breads. Glad I can enjoy waffles again tho!

          Oh, Nancy, I love this. Remember you can freeze waffles for easy breakfast meal prep ahead for delicious weekend waffle-mania! So next time you make double or quadruple the recipe, freezer these fluffy keto waffles and I’ll be over in a flash to enjoy them with you.

    they didn’t quite come out as thick as the pictures but they were still good. A little bit too much fat and when you’re recovering from some liver ailment it’s important not to eat too much fat. I also would probably back off on the sweetener. But they were good.
    I would add a little bit of almond flour if your protocol allows.
    I made some syrup to go with it with fresh blueberries blackberries and strawberries with glucomannan and a touch of tapioca flour to thicken it once it was thick I used an immersion blender and then added a teaspoon of Manuka honey.

  215. How many tablespoons for 125 g for butter ?

    Quite nice. They were lovely light and fluffy. They didn’t turn out crispy (I used a granulated sugar replacement that contains, Erythritol, Allulose, Stevia and Monkfruit) but that didn’t bother us too much as the texture was nice otherwise. However they were a little bit too “eggy” in taste. My (All-Clad) waffle maker makes 4 waffles at a time. I made 1 1/2 times the recipe and it was the perfect amount for 8 waffles. Overall a really great recipe that I will use again.
