How to Make this Keto Waffle Recipe with Cream Cheese Icing
To Make the Low Carb Waffles
Heat up your waffle maker on the medium/low setting.
In another bowl, add the egg yolks, Swerve, vanilla, melted butter and the heavy cream.
Mix for about 2 minutes.
Add the egg whites in and mix briefly.
In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder and salt.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until combined.
Batter should be loose, but not too runny. Add a little more heavy cream, if needed.
Mix the cinnamon and nutmeg together, then add it into the batter.
Mix briefly with a fork, swirling through the batter so that you see the color without fully blending.
Cook according to the directions for your maker.
To Make the Keto Cream Cheese Icing
Add a little more or less hot water to reach your desired consistency.
Remove cooked waffles from the maker and top with a pat of butter and a drizzle of the cream cheese icing.
Dust with a little ground cinnamon and serve!
Variations in Keto Waffles
Waffles are so versatile. Luckily for those on Keto or low carb diets, almond flour waffles allow you to enjoy the same breakfast as your family without the worry of consuming too may carbs.
To keep things interesting, you can take the base of this Keto waffle recipe, and change it up to have different options.
- Add fresh strawberries or any berry of your choice with a little Swerve sweetened whipped cream.
- Instead of the cream cheese icing, you can use any sugar free berry sauce. This Strawberry Sauce and Blueberry Sauce are both equally delicious and are totally Keto friendly sauces.
- Take a totally different route and make these a sweet and savory waffles by adding crumbled bacon pieces in the batter and serve with butter and warm sugar free maple syrup.
- Chopped pecans or walnuts are always a delicious addition.
- What could possibly make this Keto Cinnamon Waffle recipe any better? How about adding a drizzle of chocolate syrup?!
How Do I Freeze Leftover Almond Flour Waffles?
One of my favorite things to meal prep are waffles. While I have my waffle iron out, I will make a double or sometimes even a trip batch.
To freeze waffles made with almond flour, allow them to completely cool. Place them in a freezer bag, getting all the air out you can and stick them in the freezer for up to 3 month. It’s that easy!
To reheat them you can put them in a 350F oven until warm. Or you can just pop them in your toaster until warm.
Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat fiber is perfectly acceptable for Keto and low carb diets.
The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe! I use it in so many recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking! It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with and is really worth buying. I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500 because they grind it to a very fine powder and has a mild flavor. I buy it in the 16 ounce bag here. The bag lasts a while, because you don’t need to use much in your recipes.
Oat Fiber is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats. Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is not broken down in the digestive tract, so it’s Low Carb and Keto friendly.
