First off, I’m not going to pretend that these are “real” waffles. Not like my fluffy carb-y buttermilk goodness, or dark chocolate indulgence. But if you’re on a low carb diet for whatever reason, this keto waffle recipe might be your best friend.
I accidentally made this a few months ago on a healthy whim, and kind of forgot about it since it didn’t blow my mind.
But the last month I’ve been on a super low-carb diet for health reasons for (like keto, but more restrictive). And after a couple weeks of egg-mania plus some 90-second keto bread, I was craving something that felt semi-normal.

It’s crazy easy and all the ingredients were things I had on-hand. Even if you’re not on a specific diet, going low-carb and gluten-free on occasion isn’t a bad thing.
I often add a bit of cinnamon and vanilla to the mix, and you could even try going a tiny bit savory if you wanted (like some fresh rosemary). It doesn’t need sweetener, but you could definitely add a bit of honey or monkfruit syrup too.
I’ve made it in both my more Belgian-style waffle maker and a more traditional rectangle one and it’s great either way (I’m more partial to the Belgian).
Heat the waffle iron up. If yours needs it, grease with butter (mine specifically says not to).
Put the egg, a HUGE overflowing spoon of almond butter, almond flour, salt, and baking powder in a small bowl. Us a small whisk to stir together, beating strongly until there are no lumps.
Add the baking soda and lemon juice to the batter and mix to combine (note, the pic below is *not* mixed well yet).
Immediately pour batter into the iron and cook until desired crispness. They don’t change color much (there’s no butter/oil or sugar in them to colorize), so it’s up to you…for me it’s somewhere between 3-5 minutes.
Immediately top with whatever you want and then eat.
Toppings will depend on your particular dietary needs…I’ve found that some almond or macadamia butter, some whipped cream (for moisture), and most recently a couple berries (which weren’t allowed but I’m adding back) are perfect.
Finding this low carb waffle recipe has been a life saver the last few weeks, something I could look forward to paired with the inevitable eggs and avocado. And I love that I can literally whip it up between conference calls, or even WHILE on a call.
