Are waffles keto? Classic waffles are NOTE keto, they have approximately 47 grams of carbs and 360 calories per serving. But this recipe that I’m going to share with you is 100% okay if you are following a ketogenic diet. This Best Keto Waffles recipe can be enjoyed for breakfast or dessert, basically made with almond flour and cream cheese.
What are Keto Waffles?
Keto waffles are a delicious low carb breakfast or a quick dessert. It is usually made with almond flour or coconut flour, sometimes with cream cheese. It requires a simple batter mixture and a waffle maker.
Then, What is Chaffles?
The word “chaffles” are waffles made with cheese and eggs. Unlike Keto Waffles, Chaffles do not contain any kind of flour. It is also fluffy like the Keto waffles, but with a slight crunch and cheesy crispy taste. Is it eggy? Unfortunately yes, it does tastes and smells eggy and I’m sorry that we can’t prevent this problem. I usually just mask it with icing and other toppings. If you are lucky, the eggy smell and taste will just dissipate with time.
How to Make the Best Keto Waffles?
To make the Best Keto Waffles, simply mix all the ingredients into a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom. Then blend again for a few more seconds. Pour the natter into a large bowl and let it rest for 3-5 minutes.
In the meantime, preheat the waffle maker as per instruction. I am using a regular waffle maker, but you can also use a mini waffle maker. Brush the iron with coconut oil or olive oil. Do not over oil it. For a regular waffle maker, pour in 1 cup of the batter, for a mini waffle maker, pour in 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture.
For a regular waffle maker, it takes 5-7 minutes to cook. Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the waffles you are making. Release the waffles using a rubber spatula or chopsticks. Transfer it to a cooling rack and let it cool for 2-3 minutes before serving. Serve with sugar-free maple syrup and butter. I used Natvia Salted Caramel Smooth Topping on mine and a lot of berries on my Best Keto Waffles.
