When I first started keto, I could not find a good pancake or waffle recipe. They either tasted like cardboard, crepes, or just had an off texture. They just weren’t satisfying, to say the least. So, I kind of gave up trying recipes for them and resorted to the fact that we just wouldn’t eat those things anymore. Sad day.

Update: I have literally the BEST keto pancake recipe! Click here to save it!

Well, my attitude has changed, y’all! I decided, if I couldn’t find a recipe that was sinfully satisfying, I’d test my own recipes until I figured it out. I’m here to say that, by gosh, I think I’ve done it!

These waffles are NOT eggy. They’re not dry and crumbly. They aren’t so soft that you can’t get them out of the iron. They’re just really, really good.  Best of all, they are really filling — unlike many pancakes and waffles. Plus, half of 1 waffle is only 3.6 g net carbs.

Are These Keto Friendly?

Yes, they are! Regular waffles are made with wheat flour, which is why they aren’t keto compliant. This recipe uses a mixture of coconut flour and almond flour and just the right amount of eggs to keep the batter together without giving them that “eggy” taste. You can also make keto-friendly cheese waffles, which is very similar to this recipe but uses a high-fat, low-carb cheese like cheddar, mozzarella, or gouda, and lowers the amount of flour. You should also use a cheese that melts well as this results in a crispy, fluffy waffle.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups almond flour

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp sweetener
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free vanilla syrup (optional)

Instructions

  2. Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray. Use a 1/2 measuring cup to portion out batter into a waffle iron. Cook 2-3 minutes per waffle, until it is golden brown.

What To Serve With Saturday Morning Waffles

There’s really no wrong answer here (barring those ingredients that don’t jive with a keto diet). If you’re looking for something substantial (bear in mind these waffles are FILLING!), I would suggest some (or all) of the following: bacon, fried eggs, chorizo sausage, scrambled eggs with avocado, grilled chicken or turkey breast (shredded works a treat), or cream cheese and smoked salmon. As for toppings, whipped cream cheese with berries, creamy almond butter, or sauteed onions and mushrooms go well.

FAQs

The batter looks, um… smoother than I’m used to. Why is that?

That’s the lack of gluten! Without gluten in this recipe, there is no need to leave lumps or air bubbles. In fact, these will not be as good if you do. That’s why it’s easiest to throw everything into a blender or food processor and whip it all together until it’s really, really, smooth.

Why do I have to wait 5-10 minutes after I blend it up?

This will let the batter thicken up slightly and produce a better textured waffle. 

What if I don’t add the vanilla syrup?

The sugar free vanilla syrup is optional in this recipe. It definitely amps the flavor but if you don’t have any, or want to add a different flavor (like English toffee, cinnamon sugar, etc) feel free! Just adjust the macros accordingly!

My waffles fall apart when I try to remove them from the iron.

I used a small brownie spatula to get these out of the waffle iron so they stayed in tact. Also, check to make sure you have your iron set to the right temperature. My waffle iron has heat settings that range from 1-6 and I set it to 4, which would equate to MED HIGH.

How To Store Saturday Morning Waffles

Let the waffles cool then put them in an airtight container. You can keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat, put them in a toaster or in a pan on medium heat until they are crispy again. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. To reheat from frozen, put them in a toaster or in an oven on low until they are done.
