How to Make These Keto Waffles

  • Make the batter: Place the almond flour, cottage cheese, almond milk, egg yolks, cinnamon, baking powder, extracts, and a pinch of salt to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Whip your egg whites: In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until peaks form then fold the egg whites into the waffle batter.

recipe notes and Tips 

  • Be sure to not over mix your batter when you fold the batter with the egg whites as you don’t want the egg whites to deflate.
  • Preheat your waffle maker! This helps make your waffles get crispy on the outside while being fluffy on the inside.
  • When whisking your egg whites to a stiff peak, make sure your bowl doesn’t have any moisture in it as it’ll make it difficult to make the egg whites turn into peaks. 
  • It’ll take some time for your eggs to turn into stiff peaks but don’t give up and keep on whisking. If you want, you can use a mixer to whisk it for you. 
  • To keep these waffles keto, serve with sugar-free syrup or keto-friendly syrup.

FAQs

How do I make this ahead of time?

Simply make the keto waffles when you have the time and once they’ve cooled, store them in an airtight container and place them into the fridge. When reheating, simply place it in a toaster oven to crisp it up.

How do I freeze keto waffles?

In a container, lay them flat with parchment paper in-between them and store them in the freezer. To reheat, just place them into the toaster or toaster oven from frozen like you would with store-bought frozen waffles.

What are some toppings for my waffle that are keto-friendly?

You can top your waffles with keto sugar-free maple syrup, berries, chopped almonds, avocado, etc. We like to change things up and go with different toppings every time.

Why are my my waffles sticking to the iron?

If your waffles are sticking to your waffle iron, double-check if your waffle maker is non-stick. If not then you need to add nonstick spray.

What is the best flour for keto?

The most commonly used flour for keto recipes is almond flour. Other flours used for keto are coconut flour, chickpea flour, chia seed flour, and hazelnut flour.

    Hi Rena

    I just made this recipe however it was very dry. I used 2 cups of almond flour as suggested but the batter was no where near a waffle batter should be. Any suggestions?
