keto waffle recipe with syrup

I have been eating keto waffles for years and yet have a come across a recipe better than this one. Not only for me but the comments and remarks I get by how amazed people like yourself are by the flavor. They are crispy, buttery and everything else a classic waffle recipe should have. Yet, they are still keto friendly, paleo and gluten free! At only 4g net carbs your low carb breakfast options just got much better.

What Are Keto Waffles Made Of?

Waffles on a low carb diet can be made of a few different gluten free flours or mixes of flours. The best tasting flours would be almond flour and coconut flour. I have seen some recipes with flaxseeds and psyllium husk. These will give a very earthy flavor. I avoid those flours.

In this recipe, I mix almond flour and coconut flour. Now, the coconut flour can be left out and the waffle will still be delicious. But, it brings a better texture by providing a thicker batter.

Note, you cannot sub the almond flour for coconut flour in this recipe. Instead, here is a coconut flour waffle that is only coconut flour.

Ingredients Needed

  • Blanched Almond Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Salted Butter
  • Eggs

How To Make Keto Waffles

The recipe to make this keto waffle are easy and straight forward. I will provide some tips below.

  1. Combine all of your flours first. This recipe is easy and only needs almond flour and a little coconut flour.
  2. Using a hand mixer or whisk beat eggs and melted butter together. Salted butter really shines here.
  3. Combine your dry and wet ingredients then mix until waffle batter is super smooth and free of lumps.
  4. This waffle is for one so take all your batter on a pre heated waffle iron sprayed with oil and pour in on. The darker the waffle the more crispy it will be. If you like your waffle on the lighter side it will only be golden and fluffy.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Out of coconut flour? If you want to skip the coconut flour you can. But, if you simply don’t like coconut flour I have an all almond flour waffle as well. Note, that is a separate recipe and it does taste differently.
  • Waffle iron temperature, the hotter the waffle iron the crispier the waffle. The lower the temp the softer the waffle will be.
  • Where is the sweetener? In this recipe I don’t add in any sweetener. For sweeteners I use a sugar free maple syrup to top it off or a something like this blueberry compote from a pancake recipe.

How To Store

You can make these them freeze them for later. The great thing about waffles is you can pop them in the toaster oven straight from the freezer. For those having issues getting the waffles crispy there would be no worries when making them ahead of time.

They should keep in the freezer for months when stored in an air tight container or vacuum sealed.

Toppings & Variations

You can really go crazy here if you’d like. I personally like grass-fed butter with mine. Along with some sugar free syrup. Lakanto is the best to me. But, some advice never taste it by itself. It shines in the meal not alone. When you taste it alone it taste super concentrated and chemically. A lot like tasting stevia which you shouldn’t do either. Birch Benders also has a wonderful maple syrup. You can find them both in store or click the links and grab them from Amazon.

Or change the recipe entirely and have a chocolate keto waffle!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why isn’t my waffle crispy?

The crispiness of the waffle is all in the heat of the waffle iron. I have several people struggle with this but you have to have the heat high enough to dry out the moisture on the crust before the inside is done cooking.

What is the difference between waffles and Chaffles?

Easy, waffles are made with almond flour or coconut flour when on the keto diet. But, chaffles include mainly egg and cheese. Here’s a great chaffle recipe with an option for breakfast and to make a lunch or dinner sandwich.

Can I make pancakes with this recipe?

Yes you can do that. But, I also have a keto pancake recipe that works perfectly if you’re looking for pancakes. Here is a coconut flour pancake version as well.

There isn’t any vanilla extract in the recipe?

That is correct, the flavor of these waffles is focused on the butter only. I did that on purpose.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe Darius. It’s so easy to make and they really are the best Leto waffles I’ve tried.

  2. I like that this recipe only uses 1 egg. Some of the other keto waffle recipes are just too heavy on the eggs and taste like you’re eating an omelet. Thanks for this recipe, I’m going to make it right now!

  3. 5 stars
    Delicious!

    Thanks so much Darius, for sharing! This waffle recipe is absolutely AMAZING 🤩 I agree with other reviewers that this isn’t eggy at all and really satisfies that waffle craving. I have made this countless times and in different variations. It makes a great base for both sweet and savory waffles (my most recent experiment has been a cheddar thyme version and it is delish!) Doubling the batch fits perfectly into my waffle maker. Please share more of these recipe delights!

  4. I just restarted Keto and I am so happy I found this recipe! The batter is super easy and quick to whip together, they cook very well and really are fluffy. The best part is that the taste is really good! It takes some getting used to the almond flour texture when doing keto, but these were fluffy, not eggy at all and definitely satisfied my waffle craving.

    Darius, is it possible to freeze these cooked waffles? I multiplied the amount of batter and now have extra as one was very filling!

    Thank you so much for this recipe! You’ve gained another follower!

  5. This is my go to Waffle recipe! I tried something new with it this morning. Replaced half the butter with pumpkin purée. Added cinnamon and vanilla. It was yummy. Made it a little more dense and cake like. But a nice change.

  6. This is my favorite waffle recipe! Curious if you could help me, want to use this recipe as a base for pumpkin waffles, what and how much can I add to make this a pumpkin version?

  7. This is a great question because I actually just adapted it myself for a personal recipe. I added 1 tsp pumpkin spice, 1 TB of sweetener and replaced the butter with 2TB of canned pumpkin. I topped it off with butter as well but that is optional. If you give it a try let me know what you think. I loved it but it’s not hard to please me with pumpkin lol.

  8. This is definitely going to be my go-to keto waffle recipe. I’ve been doing keto since July 2020 and attempted to make waffles one time. They were so dense and dry that I threw it in the trash after one bite. I made these this morning and they are absolutely delicious. I recently found out about pecan flour so instead of almond flour I used pecan flour. I did not have any coconut flour so I used coconut extract instead. They are so so good.

    Thank you so much for this! They were delicious and I was able to have a much needed break from chaffles. I appreciate your dedication and hard work in helping others along our journey. 🙂

  10. I tried to make enough for four servings. The batter ended up being more like a thick paste. Should the ratio of ingredients be adjusted as the servings increase?

  11. Did it become a thick paste as it sat or when you mixed it originally? Due to the coconut flour it would be best to make one at a time because as it sits the flours will keep absorbing the liquid causing the waffle batter to get thicker and thicker.

  12. This is SO GOOD. I think I might just stand around all day and make batches of these for freezing. But I have to finish my SECOND WAFFLE below I can do that.

  13. 5 stars
    My first time making keto waffles (I made chaffles too). These were sooo easy and so delicious I am so glad I spent $9.95 on a mini waffle maker today. Thank you for this easy, delicious e discovery!!

  14. I have made this recipe many times and have been adding things to it to make it a bit more to how I like them. I also add, xanthan gum, pure monkfruit sweetner, vanilla and some thick creamy coconut milk to the batter. I really like it!
    On top I whip cream with monkfruit and vanilla, whip cream cheese into that, put that on top of the pancake and then top that with fruit.
