When you’re on the Keto diet, it’s not unheard of to find yourself dreaming of carb-heavy breakfast food like pancakes and waffles. We know how hard it can be to resist a plate of waffles with maple syrup pooled inside those gorgeous, little square crevices. Thanks to this Keto waffles recipe, you no longer have to!
These Keto waffles are made with coconut flour and no added sugars to make this a low-carb, low-sugar recipe. It can be challenging to create tasty Keto waffles that are grain-free and made with simple pantry ingredients, but this recipe does just that. That’s right, you don’t need any special protein powders or ingredients you’ve never even heard of to make these waffles.
If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can still enjoy these Keto waffles by pouring the batter into a frying pan and cooking them like pancakes. For an equally low-carb, low-sugar topping, add freshly whipped cream and fresh blackberries to your waffles.
Keto Waffles Recipe
- 5 eggs, separated
- 4 tbsp coconut flour
- 4 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice (or more, to taste)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp whole milk or cream
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until you get firm, soft peaks. Temporarily set aside.
- In another large bowl, mix the egg yolks, coconut flour, granulated sweetener, and baking powder. Slowly add the melted butter while you stir to combine.
- Pour the milk and vanilla into the batter, then mix.
- Now, gently fold the egg whites into the batter as carefully as you can. You want to make sure you are very gentle so that you retain as much of the air and fluffiness of the egg whites as you can.
- Scoop the batter into your waffle maker, just enough to fill your mold’s waffle maker and make 1 complete waffle. Cook according to your waffle maker’s instructions, or until the waffle is golden. Repeat for the remaining batter.
