There’s nothing quite like a good waffle to start or end the day! Waffles are super versatile and can be made into a delicious keto breakfast or a quick and easy dessert, it’s just all about the toppings!
Whilst some grain-free waffles can be a little on the heavy side, these keto waffles are light and can also be crisped if you like them that way!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 3 servings
- 1/3 cup blanched almond flour
- 1 to 2 tbsp Monkfruit/Erythritol Sweetener powdered
- 1.5 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp ground psyllium husk
- 3/4 tsp baking powder gluten-free
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 large egg + 1 egg white separated, room temperature
- 4.5 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tbsp butter melted and cooled to room temperature. If dairy-free, substitute with ghee or coconut oil.
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp hemp seeds
- 1/2 tsp chopped hazelnuts
- 1/4 tsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp Lakanto maple syrup
- 3 small scoops vanilla ice cream
Mix the almond flour with the sweetener, coconut flour, psyllium, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Place the egg whites in a clean mixing bowl and whisk using an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
Add the egg yolk, almond milk, butter (ghee or coconut oil), almond butter, and vanilla to the dry ingredients and blitz until smooth using a stick blender.
Gently fold in the egg whites using a spatula being careful not to over mix so that it doesn’t deflate.
Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.
Heat up a waffle iron. Spoon in the batter. It will be thick, so you can wet the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly over the waffle iron. Depending on the waffle iron you use, cooking times will vary and can be between 2 and 5 minutes. If you lift the lid and find they’re not done, don’t panic, just close the lid again and they will continue to cook. A mini dash maker takes about 1.5 to 3 minutes. My square-shaped waffle maker cooked waffles in about 5 minutes.
If you prefer to crisp the waffles further, you can toast on low in a toaster or in a skillet set over low heat.
Remove the fluffy keto waffles from the waffle maker (see tip above) and allow it to cool. Serve with your topping of choice. I chose keto ice cream, Lakanto maple syrup and mix of chopped hazelnuts, shelled hemp seeds and sesame seeds.

TOP TIPS FOR THE FLUFFIEST KETO WAFFLES
- Use a combination of blanched almond flour and coconut flour - This helps make the waffles fluffy and less dense.
- Melt the butter - Make sure the butter is melted and allow it to cool to room temperature before mixing.
- Room temperature - Make sure the eggs are at room temperature.
- Xanthan gum - This is non-negotiable in this recipe. The xanthan gum helps bind the waffles and gives them a nice, light texture.
- Psyllium husk - Please don’t skip this. This helps create structure and the perfect consistency for these light and fluffy waffles. It also helps the almond flour and the almond butter give the best crispness. Make sure you use ground psyllium husk over whole. If you don’t have ground on hand, simply place whole husks in your blender and blitz until fine.
- Separate the eggs - Whisking up the egg whites first helps make these keto waffles super light.
- Best sweeteners - My erythritol/monkfruit blend, Lakanto or allulose work best here. If using allulose add about 30% more as it’s not quite as sweet.
- Leave the batter to stand in the waffle maker for 30 seconds before lifting out. These keto waffles may appear soft when you first lift the lid but they crisp up as they cool. The secret to removing the waffles without tearing them is to lift the lid and leave for about 30 seconds (you can turn the machine off if you don’t want them to crisp up more), and then carefully tease the side with a fork and lift out. Place on a wire wrack to fully cool and firm up. The sweetener also helps make them crispy!
