Dairy-Free Keto Waffles
– Keto Summit
Ingredients: ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, coconut flour, erythritol, salt, baking powder, reserved pumpkin spice, egg, unsweetened almond milk, ghee, pumpkin puree, confectioners erythritol.
Fall means one thing: pumpkin spice everything. Don’t feel like you have to miss out on this yearly obsession just because you’re Keto. This Keto pumpkin waffles recipe is the absolute best way to wake up!
– Wholesome Yum
Ingredients: eggs, almond butter, erythritol (or any sweetener of choice), gluten-free baking powder.
It is really surprising when you taste these waffles that they are not made using any flour at all! They end up crisped on the outside, yet light and fluffy on the inside. You can use any sweetener that you prefer, or omit the sweet and make them savory to serve with eggs. If you tolerate dairy you could also omit the sweetener and add some grated parmesan to the batter for an even richer flavor.
– Healthful Pursuit
Ingredients: flaxseed, gluten-free baking powder, sea salt, eggs, water, avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil, fresh herbs (if making savory) or ground cinnamon.
Here is another recipe that lets you decide whether you want to go sweet or savory, yet still giving you healthy waffles. They are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle and would even double as bread for a sandwich or base for salad and cooked meats for lunch. You can add fresh herbs to the batter for a savory twist, then serve with loads of veggies and chicken or pork.

Ingredients: unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk, apple cider vinegar, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla extract, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sweetener of choice.
One of the best things about making your own waffles is that you are in charge of how sweet you make them. Store-bought ones are usually too sweet for me, but this recipe allows you to adjust the sweetness. The waffles taste at their best served straight away with whatever topping you prefer. If you are buying a waffle iron then a ceramic one is much easier to clean than a conventional one.
– Caveman Keto
Ingredients: almond flour, butter (use ghee or coconut oil instead for dairy-free), baking powder, Splenda, bacon, eggs.
I must admit I had never seen bacon waffles before I found this recipe, but the thought of cooking bacon into a waffle seems like genius! You end up with a light and fluffy waffle with built-in bacon crispiness that you can enjoy for breakfast any day! Serve with a knob of your favorite butter or a drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup and enjoy!
– Grass Fed Girl
Ingredients: coconut flour, baking soda, ground nutmeg (optional), eggs, coconut milk, lemon juice, stevia (optional), no-sugar raspberry jam (optional), butter or ghee.
I remember as a child waking up to the lovely aroma of fresh-cooked waffles in the morning and looking forward to breakfast! With this recipe, you and your family can do the same, but on a healthier level than my childhood ones. Whether you serve them with the raspberry sauce is up to you, but if you have any leftovers they make great bread substitutes for lunchboxes.
– Wellness Mama
Ingredients: eggs, butter or coconut oil, coconut flour, cinnamon, vanilla, salt.
As with a lot of coconut flour recipes, the results can be very filling, so I would suggest that, depending on the size of your waffle iron, one of these is enough at a time. This is a great recipe to serve with breakfast sausage or egg, or add a little nut butter on top and sprinkle with cinnamon for a new twist on the flavor. Again these make great bread replacements for kids’ lunchboxes.
Plus, heart surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry, M.D. recommends coconut flour as a substitute for other, less healthy flours. “Not only does it add a delicious texture and flavor…but coconut flour is a great source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber.”
– Just Enjoy Health
Ingredients: organic eggs, butter or ghee (organic and preferably grass-fed), coconut flour, pink salt, baking soda, coconut milk.
If you are craving the thicker, more satisfying Belgian-style waffles then this recipe is great for you. However, if you don’t have a Belgian waffle maker you can use a standard one and you will get more waffles out of the batter. These are great served with a little cinnamon or some berries, or simple ingredients like ghee and maple syrup.
– The Cast Away Kitchen
Ingredients: cauliflower florets, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, kale powder (optional), eggs, coconut flour, green onion or dried chives.
Superfoods are usually nutrient-rich sources of goodness and even the humble cauliflower is a superfood! These savory waffles can be used as a side dish for casseroles or serve along with chicken thighs. Remember to remove as much liquid as you can from the cauliflower so the waffles stay light and not soggy.
Keto Almond Flour Waffles
– Keto Summit
Ingredients: almond flour, eggs, ghee, coconut milk, baking powder, vanilla extract, erythritol, berries.
If your family are waffle-lovers, why not give this recipe a go! The waffles here would make a great base for breakfast ingredients like bacon and eggs, or you could eat them as they are. These waffles can also be stored in the freezer for a quick and easy meal at any time.

These waffles are made quickly and easily and can be ready in just a few minutes, so everyone can have a filling and satisfying breakfast. If you want to, you can use lower fat cream cheese if you are trying to lose weight, and it won’t affect the flavor. These can be eaten as they are or topped with a berry compote for a fresh yet filling meal.
– All Day I Dream About Food
Ingredients: almond flour, granulated Swerve Sweetener, vanilla whey protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, eggs, Greek yogurt, butter, unsweetened almond milk.
This is another great recipe that uses Greek yogurt, which is lower in carbs that other yogurts, making it a great ingredient to use in these breakfast beauties! They are easy to make and are filling enough that one waffle will be plenty per serving. These taste great with a little maple syrup and scattered with almond slices or fresh berries.

Ingredients: eggs, oil, cream, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, Splenda sugar substitute, salt, protein powder, almond flour (optional), flax seed (optional).
This recipe gives you such light and airy waffles that would be perfect at any time of day! Because of the amount of eggs used here they have a slight eggy flavor which makes them ideal for breakfast, but you could add toppings and serve them as a lunch option too. So if you like your waffles light and fluffy, this is the one for you!
Keto Coconut Flour Waffles
– Keto Summit
Ingredients: coconut flour, cacao powder, erythritol, salt, baking powder, eggs, unsweetened almond milk, ghee, confectioner’s erythritol.
If like me you can’t see anything wrong with eating chocolate for breakfast, then these waffles are perfect for you! They are full of chocolate flavor, but are not too dry and are great to eat on their own. If you prefer, you could pour over some sugar-free maple syrup or add a knob of your favorite butter. These waffles store in the fridge for up to ten days in an airtight container.

These waffles are so light that they can be served every day for breakfast! Smother them with fruit or a drizzle of syrup and they definitely won’t weigh you down.

These waffles can also be frozen, so you will always have some on stand-by!
– 5 minute Life
Ingredients: coconut flour, eggs, granulated stevia, baking powder, vanilla extract, full fat milk, butter.
Tired of pancakes for breakfast? Why not try making waffles instead! This recipe, made with coconut flour, makes a delicious light breakfast that won’t slow you down at the start of a busy day, or you could serve them with a dollop of coconut cream as a lovely dessert.

Here is another versatile recipe that you can adapt to suit yourself, but that gives you light and airy waffles for a healthy breakfast or dessert. If you can’t have coconut flour you could use almond flour instead, but you will need to add more if you are using a waffle iron. If not, the almond flour gives the batter the perfect consistency for pancakes. These waffles can be stored in the freezer so you will have them ready whenever you need them.
– To Simply Inspire
Ingredients: protein powder of your choice, egg, baking powder, water.
With only three ingredients, this must be one of the easiest waffle recipes you will find.

You can add extras to boost the flavor – try adding vanilla extract or cinnamon for a nice change in taste.

These wonderful waffles are low carb and flavored with cinnamon, making them a great idea for a healthy breakfast.

Just have fun experimenting with your favorite flavors and toppings.

Like most waffle recipes, the batter in this one can easily be adapted for making pancakes if you don’t have a waffle maker, but it might be worth getting one if you enjoy light and fluffy waffles for breakfast.
