Best & Easiest Keto Waffles
This is the best and easiest keto, low carb, waffle recipe ever. With only one mixing bowl required and super simple ingredients, you’ll end up with perfectly fluffy waffles every time (and in less than 10 minutes!)
Waffles Aren’t Just For The Weekend…
It’s Saturday morning here, and I’m making waffles (again!). I just can’t stop. I make them any day of the week, not just the weekends. They are highly addictive, not just because they taste delicious, but also because they’re just SO incredibly easy to make. And you all should know by now, I’m all about easy and tasty recipes.
They require a waffle iron, a mixing bowl, a whisk and the most basic low carb baking ingredients.
You Will Need…
Eggs – 4 eggs may seem like a lot of eggs to some of you, but I assure you they don’t have an “eggy” taste, and they hold together beautifully.
Unsweetened Almond Milk – You don’t have to use almond milk, you can use your favourite unsweetened milk.
Almond Flour – This is the most common baking ingredient in my house. Be sure to use almond flour in this recipe, and not almond meal, or the texture will be thrown off.
Granulated Sweetener – I mostly use erythritol in my recipes (because I buy it in bulk), but other good keto sweeteners include Monkfruit or Swerve.
Baking Powder & Salt – This ingredient helps these waffles give them a wonderful rise. Make sure to use gluten-free baking powder.
Can They Be Frozen?
Why, yes my friends, they certainly can be frozen.
After they have cooled down completely, place them in a freezer-proof container or a large ziplock bag, and freeze them for when they are desired (which is everyday in my house).
They can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months. And when the craving for waffles hit, simply take them out the freezer and pop them into the oven or toaster until warmed through and crispy. They usually take around 10 minutes in the oven.
Make these beauties your own by adding your favourite flavours/ extracts to the batter. Additionally, you can add in a dash (or two) of spices (cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice or chai-spice), sugar-free chocolate chips or blueberries to the batter.
What’s The Best Topping For Them?
Oh my, the options are endless.
Some of our favourite toppings include:
- (Sugar-Free) Simple Strawberry Syrup or Sugar-Free Maple Syrup
- Sugar Free Blueberry Jam or Sugar Free Strawberry Jam
- Best Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge Sauce
- Easy Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce
- Best-Ever Homemade Lemon Curd
- 3-Ingredient Low Carb Yogurt
- Homemade Whipped Cream
- Berries – a handful of blueberries, blackberries strawberries or raspberries.
- Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut (lightly toasted)
- Nuts (chopped and lightly toasted) or Homemade Almond Butter
Tips & Tricks…
- Don’t take them out of the waffle iron too early – Typically I wait 4 minutes before I check for “doneness”. But depending on your waffle iron, they could be ready in 3 minutes, or take up to 5 minutes. If you open it too early, they risk not getting crispy enough, being too soft and sticking to the waffle plates.
- Don’t over-mix the batter – The minute you see a smooth batter, stop whisking.
- Wait until the waffle iron is hot – It’s important not to pour the batter into the waffle iron too early. Wait until it’s completely heated up.
- Grease The Plates – Lightly greasing the waffle iron plates prevents the batter from sticking. I use coconut oil spray but you can also use avocado oil spray instead.
- Room Temperature Eggs – Another important tip is to always have your eggs room temperature. This prevents the batter from clumping.
