Enjoying a low-carb diet doesn’t mean you can’t have waffles: These Keto Waffles are the perfect breakfast. Made with only two surprising ingredients, they are easy and so delicious.

Keto Waffle Recipe

We love our waffle maker. We love weekend waffles, yes, but we love it so much that we even make waffle omelets and leftover Thanksgiving stuffing waffles.

When you think beyond the classic buttermilk waffle, these little machines can really do so much. And yes, they can even make healthy waffles.

These two-ingredient keto waffles are the perfect example. They’re made with two unbelievable ingredients: peanut butter and eggs. Yes, you read that right!

But they are so delicious, and I know you — and the whole family — will love adding waffles back into your weekend routine. Let’s get into this tasty breakfast recipe!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

This recipe for low carb waffles is going to be your new weekend fave, because…

These waffles are similar to keto chaffles (waffles made with egg and cheese), only they’re sweeter because they’re made with peanut butter and eggs.
Each mini waffle is only 5 carbs! A great way to start the day.
Just like the real thing, you can customize them with your favorite toppings.

These waffles are so easy, so they’re as great for weekdays as they are weekends and celebrations like birthday breakfast.

Equipment Needed

For these keto waffles, you’ll need a waffle iron of course! That said, you can probably make these into keto pancakes, though I haven’t tried it.

I used a mini waffle iron, but you can use a regular-size one if that’s what you have. You may want to make a double batch to make more waffles. This makes about 6 mini waffles or 2-3 regular waffles.

You’ll also need cooking spray. I like to use an avocado oil cooking spray for the most compliant and best keto waffles.

Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make keto waffles:

eggs: Always use the best eggs you can afford. I usually go for large, cage-free, organic eggs, but you do you! I haven’t tried this recipe with egg whites only, but in theory it should work!
peanut butter: According to Healthline, peanut butter is keto, but it depends on the ingredients. Natural peanut butter is the way to go here. Regular creamy peanut butter may not be keto if it has sugar in it, so always check the label. I have not tried this with other types of nut butter, but let me know if you do!

You could also try adding mix-ins, such as fresh fruit, sugar-free chocolate chips, ground cinnamon or vanilla extract.

Keto Toppings for Waffles

Feel free to drizzle regular melted butter and pure maple syrup all over, just like traditional waffles! But if you prefer some keto waffle toppings, try some of these:

butter
sugar-free syrup
keto maple syrup
buttermilk syrup
sugar-free keto whipped cream
melted peanut butter
almond butter
sugar-free strawberry sauce
pinch of ground cinnamon
mashed berries
cream cheese
sugar-free jam
fresh fruit or berries
coconut whipped cream
lemon curd
Greek yogurt
sugar-free chocolate chips

You could even use these waffles as in place of bread to make waffle sandwiches. For dessert, add yogurt and berries on top of a crisp waffle to make them like a fruit pizza for dessert. Or add a scoop of keto ice cream on top!

How to Make Keto Waffles

Making this healthy keto waffles recipe is so easy! Here’s what to do:

Start by whisking together your eggs and peanut butter until smooth.
Heat up your waffle iron and grease well with cooking spray.
Place about two tablespoons of batter in the center of your waffle iron. (About ⅓ cup for a regular waffle iron.)
Cook for about 3 minutes, until the waffles are golden brown. Remove from waffle iron.
Top with butter, syrup and toppings of your choice.
Store them in a food-safe, airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

FAQ

Is peanut butter keto?

Yes, peanut butter can be keto. However, some brands contain added sugar and thus more carbs.

Do I have to grease the waffle iron after every waffle?

It depends on your waffle maker and if it’s non-stick, the kind of oil you use and your waffle batter. Typically one light spritz of cooking oil will last for 1-2 waffles, but your mileage may vary depending on your appliance and the recipe. Test it out with the first waffle and see how it goes.
