Keto Almond Flour Waffles
I don’t understand people who say they skip breakfast. In my personal opinion, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Regardless of how busy my day is likely to be, I always set time aside to have a proper breakfast. While I typically stick to overnight oats or, when I’m being fancy, a stack of pancakes, I’ve recently been enjoying waffles.
Now, I have been a waffle lover for quite some time now. In fact, my go-to breakfast up until recently was fluffy keto waffles with a side of fruit. However, as I’ve been trying to incorporate more almond flour in my recipes, I’ve been forgoing my usual (made with coconut flour) for these new and improved ones!
Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, this almond flour waffle recipe will be your new favorite breakfast. Compared to my original waffles, these ones are also much lighter, too! Like my almond flour pancakes, they are pleasantly sweet, which is perfect to add your favorite toppings on it (or a drizzle of keto caramel).
I had some friends over for brunch the other day and whipped up some of these, and NO ONE believed me when I said it was made with almond flour- they thought it was like classic diner-style waffles (aka full of white flour!).
How do you make keto waffles with almond flour?
- Almond flour– Try to use blanched or superfine almond flour, not almond meal. This will ensure a lighter and fluffier texture.
- Granulated sweetener of choice– Either monk fruit sweetener or erythritol. I only added a little bit, as I love to load my waffles with some fun (and sweet!) toppings.
- Baking powder– Leavening agent which gives the waffles some extra rise and fluffiness.
- Coconut oil OR butter– Gives a delicious buttery texture.
- Eggs– Room temperature eggs are preferred.
- Yogurt– Plain yogurt, coconut yogurt, or Greek yogurt can be used. For richer waffles, you can even use heavy cream.
- Vanilla extract- Optional, but gives the waffles a delicate vanilla flavor.
Add all your ingredients into a high speed blender and pulse until combined and smooth. Grease a waffle iron and when hot, pour 1/4 – 1/2 cup portions of the batter onto it. Cook until the edges are crispy. Repeat the process until all the batter is used up.
Tips to make the best almond flour waffles
- Even though there is coconut oil (or butter) in the waffle batter, you still need to grease the waffle iron generously. This ensures the edges are crispy and the batter doesn’t stick.
- Feel free to change up the flavors of the waffles. Add cocoa powder for chocolate waffles and add cinnamon for cinnamon spice waffles.
- Serve waffles with some vanilla ice cream, coconut milk ice cream, or some low carb fruit.
Storing and freezing tips
- To store: Leftover waffles can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 1 week.
- To freeze: Place waffles in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.
- Reheat: Either in a preheated oven, toaster, or even a non-stick pan. Try to avoid using a microwave, otherwise, they will be soft, not crispy.
