You only need a few basics ingredients to make keto waffles with almond flour and cream cheese.
This almond flour waffle batter must be prepared in a high-speed blender to cream a smooth low carb pancake waffle batter with no gritty flavor. The blender is not optional, don’t try to make this recipe without, or the waffles won’t be fluffy and gritty.
These are the easiest keto waffles with almond flour! All you have to do is blend all the ingredients. The order doesn’t matter, into a high-speed blender until smooth.
If some almond flour doesn’t blend and sticks to the sides of the blender jug, stop the blender. Then, using a silicone spatula, scrape down the almond flour into the center of the jug.
Close the lid and blend again until all the ingredients are perfectly blended. You want to form a smooth, slightly thick golden yellow batter that resembles pancake batter.
To make the best almond flour keto waffles that are fluffy, light, and slightly crispy on the edges, give your batter a 10-minute rest at room temperature. This gives you time to clean dishes and preheat your waffle iron.
I highly recommend a mini iron maker (affiliate link) to make keto waffle recipes. It is perfect for making single-serve waffles, control carbs, and quickly bake a delicious waffle for breakfast.
This is a keto recipe for mini waffle makers. It means that you can bake this keto waffle batter in a single-serve mini waffle iron. That said, these keto waffles with cream cheese bake perfectly in regular waffle makers as well.

This keto cream cheese waffle recipe makes 13 mini waffles. Each waffle is made of 2 and a half tablespoons of waffle batter. It means that each waffle contains:
Keto cream cheese waffles don’t use mozzarella cheese. As a result, they are lighter, fluffier, less crispy, and not as dry as sweet chaffle recipes.
In fact, chaffle recipes can get very dry and hard if overbaked, even just for 1 minute. This is because they use lots of cheese that hardens as the waffle cools down.
You won’t get that weird texture with this keto cream cheese waffle with almond flour. Even if you are a beginner and slightly over bake these waffles, they will stay light and fluffy.
You can use this keto waffle recipe to make a sweet or savory waffle.

You can also use this mini waffle maker keto recipe to make savory waffles. If so, make sure you remove from the recipe the following ingredients:

Any keto waffle recipe can be frozen on a ziplock bag or airtight container. They also store very well in the fridge for up to 3 days in a sealed container.
Rewarm your keto waffles in a bread toaster or mini iron maker for few seconds.
I don’t recommend oven or air fryers to rewarm waffles. Even on low heat, these methods always dries out waffles. They lose all their fluffy soft texture.
I haven’t tried this recipe with coconut flour. Keep in mind that you can never swap almond flour and coconut flour with a 1:1 ratio.
Coconut flour contains four times more fiber than almond flour. Consequently, it is way more liquid absorbent, and it dries out baked goods very quickly.
If you want to use coconut flour, always use a fourth of the amount of almond flour suggested in the recipe.
No, this keto waffle recipe won’t work with egg replacer like flax eggs.
