The BEST Keto Waffle Recipe EVER (Tastes Better Than The Real Thing!)

The BEST Keto Waffle Recipe EVER

yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 5 MINUTES

total time: 15 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup blanched almond flour, 45 g (I use Bob's Red Mill super-fine almond flour)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour, 28 g
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder, 18 g (I use NOW brand)
  • 2 tablespoons erythritol, granular, 24 g (I use Lakanto Golden, Monkfruit Sweetener w/ erythritol)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs (best at room temp)
  • 1/4 cup block cream cheese, 2 oz (softened)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, 1.5 oz (softened)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 28 g (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Directions

1

Preheat waffle iron. Mix all dry ingredients together: almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, erythritol, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

2

Using an electric mixer, beat in remaining ingredients egg, cream cheese, butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Be sure that your cream cheese, butter, and coconut oil are nice and soft. Mix until fully combined and smooth.

3

With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture. Increase speed to medium/high. Continue mixing for another minute or so until a uniform, sticky batter has formed.

4

Scoop batter onto a preheated waffle iron (nonstick waffle irons do not require cooking spray). You can choose to divide your batter into 2 large or 4 small waffles. Press down a bit with a spatula. Close the lid and cook until golden brown.

5

Garnish with your favorite toppings. Some of my personal loves are sugar-free syrup, homemade whipped cream, fresh berries, nut pieces, peanut butter, and sugar-free jam!

Keto Waffles that are BETTER than the real thing – young child eating waffles

My non-keto kiddos like these better than regular waffles!

That’s the truth, and they had no clue that they were keto until I told them. Winner, winner, waffle dinner!

Yep, these delicious little cakes are truly fabulous, and here’s why… For starters, the batter is a snap to make and they puff up to a beautiful golden brown in the waffle iron. They are soft on the inside with a nice chew on the outside. They taste like you’re cheating, and what’s more, these keto waffles can be frozen. Just pop them in the toaster for breakfast on rushed mornings.

Did I mention these waffles taste like you’re cheating?!

Hip Tips:

1) Make a double batch and freeze these babies… Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a tasty morning waffle! Simply place cooled waffles on a sheet pan, and pop them in the freezer for an hour or so. Then transfer them to a large freezer bag or storage container. If you’re reheating them using a toaster, plan to make four 4″ waffles per batch so they fit in the slot.

2) In a pinch, you can substitute flax meal for psyllium husk, but I don’t think the texture and taste are quite as good.

3) For this Keto waffle recipe, I’ve had great luck with Bob’s Red Mill super-fine almond flour, NOW brand psyllium husk powder, and Lakanto Golden, monkfruit sweetener w/ erythritol. For the topping, my fav low-carb “maple” syrup is Lakanto sugar-free syrup.

4) When serving a group, I use this method— First, I make all the waffles in the waffle iron. Then, I place them directly on the middle oven rack in a preheated, 300-degree oven for 5 minutes. This allows everyone to enjoy a warm, crisped waffle together!

  1. Susan

    I made this recipe for today’s breakfast, and I encourage anyone who has a waffle iron to try it out. Hard to believe that my family and I can enjoy delicious waffles without having to use white or wheat flour. I substituted Chia Seeds for Psyllium Husk – as I didn’t have this ingredient on hand. Yummy! Yummy!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO happy to hear everyone enjoyed them, Susan! Thanks a bunch for letting us know how they turned out for you!

  2. Kristy

    Is there a quick way to change the measurements to cups and ounces?

    • stormy819

      Google conversations

  3. Kristy

    Doh, never mind. I obviously didn’t look closely at the recipe! Please forgive my oversight.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      No worries! Thanks, Kristy!

  4. Cristydd

    This is the second keto waffle recipe I’ve tried. Sorry, but I’m not a fan. I just don’t think it’s possible to make a proper waffle on keto. Oh well. I’ve enjoyed lots of your other recipes!

    • Marley (Sister Sidekick)

      Hi Cristy. I’m sorry to hear that you don’t love the waffles. But, thanks for letting me know that you’ve enjoyed other recipes! ❤️

    • Shirley Yeo

      I was so excited to try them but texture was VERY dense and sadly,no taste. Even added a bit more flavoring, but no difference. Batter did not spread but was like a lump and I had to hand spread it in the waffle iron. Normal cooking setting of 3 out 5 burned the first one so turned it down for next time. Sorry, not “a keeper” our our family. Yes, we too have enjoyed some of the other recipes. That’s what makes cooking exciting trying something to see when you find recipes your family loves!! Thanks for your great work H2K! 🙂

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        You’re very welcome. So sorry this one didn’t work out. Glad you have been enjoying some of the other recipes. 😊

  5. Michelle (Hip Sidekick)

    I love these waffles and make them every few weeks for my family! A good sugar free syrup makes these extra yummy, but I also like to eat the leftovers with a bit of peanut butter on them.

  6. MELISSA D WINTEROD

    OMG, these are unbelievable awesome waffles! The best “keto” version of a baked good I have made so far! Thanks!

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      So happy you enjoyed them, MELISSA! Thanks so much for your sweet comment.

  7. Raye Thompson

    Made these this evening for hubby and me. They are absolutely delicious! I did add some heavy cream to thin the batter a wee bit! I left my batter pretty thick, though. I loved that the recipe didn’t have oodles of ingredients to buy.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Glad to hear how yummy they were, Raye! Thanks for sharing with us!

  8. Angelina Martinez

    I love it that you added almond extract! Thanks for sharing!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You are SO very welcome! Enjoy!

  9. Lauren M

    My waffles did not get crispy in the waffle iron, but they tasted amazing! Do you have any tips on making them a little more crisp like a normal waffle?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, maybe check to see that your waffle iron is getting hot enough. You could also try cooking them just a bit longer. Hope that helps!

  10. Wiwi

    These waffles are superb! I make them twice a week. Also make a strawberry jam to eat them with. Really love them and my husband does too. Great job.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Wiwi! I’m so glad to know how much you enjoy them!

  11. Amanda Miller

    Next time I make these, I will cut the coconut flour in half. It absorbs too much liquid, making these very dry and thick. Plus, they taste too much like coconut for my liking. But with that change (and some added cinnamon), I think they will be great!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks so much for sharing with us. Let us know how they turn out for you!

  12. Kristen

    My son and I just started keto yesterday! His favorite breakfast has been chia waffles gluten free for the past year. I found this recipe and used 2 Tbs of our plain protein powder that has psyllium husk added and chia seeds…these waffles are amazing!! He loved them. Used the Lakanto syrup and he said it tasted like McDonald’s breakfast (dads house everyother weekend)Hahahaha now this is the way to get him liking the keto life style! Thanks

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, That’s awesome, Kristen! You’re very welcome! SO glad he loved them! 🙌

  13. kamketo

    Made these today and they were excellent! Was not a waffle or pancake person in the past because of the carb and sugar content but these were great!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Thanks a bunch for the feedback!

  14. Irina

    Very nice waffles! Thank you for the recipe! I only substituted almond flour with no-sugar fat-reduced almond powder (PB&Me Powdered Almond Butter – No Sugar Added) to reduce calories. We loved them with whipped cream and some fresh strawberries

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yummy! You’re welcome, Irina! Glad to hear how great they turned out!
