Keto zucchini waffles are cheesy almond flour waffles, 100% gluten-free with only 2.3 grams of net carbs per serving. They are delicious savory keto breakfast, or light dinner served with cream cheese and lettuce.

Keto Zucchini Waffles – cheesy almond flour waffles

There is nothing easier than keto waffles, and even the non-keto eaters will devour these savory waffles in no time. All you need to make the most delicious crispy zucchini waffles are:

  • Zucchini – grated, skin on to ad fiber. Make sure you squeeze out the extra juice from the zucchini before adding it to the batter, or they release juice, and the water gets too moist. Zucchini is one of the best keto-friendly vegetables!
  • Eggs
  • Cheese – I love a combo of parmesan and mozzarella, but mature cheddar would work as well. Just make sure to pick a keto-friendly cheese!
  • Garlic powder or fresh garlic
  • Salt
  • Almond flour or almond meal – both work. Learn more about keto-friendly flours with my guide!

Can  I use something other than zucchini?

Yes, you can make these keto waffles with chopped spinach or chopped kale. Both are low-carb vegetables that go very well with these cheesy waffles.

How to serve zucchini waffles?

Zucchini waffles make delicious breakfast or light keto dinner. They are delicious on their own or topped with guacamole, cream cheese, or bacon.

  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • Wash and cut the extremities of the zucchinis. Discard them.
  • Grate the zucchinis using a grater - the thinner, the better. Squeeze out the extra water with your hands and measure the quantity of grated zucchini required by the recipe. Discard the zucchini water or keep for another recipe.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, eggs, grated parmesan, mozzarella, garlic powder, salt until it forms a batter. 
  • Stir in the grated zucchini. Combine until all the grated zucchini are covered with the batter.
  • Brush some coconut oil or vegetable oil on the waffle iron.
  • Spoon the batter into the hot waffle iron and bake for 3-5 minutes or until the outside is crispy.
  • Serve hot topped with mashed avocado, cream cheese, or bacon, and lettuce on the side for a light dinner.
  • Can be precooked 4-5 hours before eating. Store on a rack covered with foil.
  • Rewarm until crispy and hot when ready to heat.
Nut-free flours: if you don't like almond flour and you can use the same amount of sunflower seed flour, or if not on a keto diet you can use buckwheat flour, it is a low-GI healthy flour replacement.
Cheese: any hard grated cheese works in this recipe like Mozzarella, Edam, or Cheddar. I used a blend of cheese for the flavor. It is up to you to choose your favorite one.
Net carbs per waffle: 2. 3 grams

  1. 5 stars
    Excellent recipe! I did experiment and added a few more items to the recipe to give it a more savory flavor. I added 1 tsp of basil, 1 tsp of onion powder, 2 tsp of rosemary and 3 tbsp of creamer to thin out the batter. I also used a spiralizer on the zucchini and kitchen shears to trim the long spirals into little strands. These taste great with a homemade marinara sauce!

  2. Unfortunately mine got stuck in the iron … any idea what went wrong? The taste was nice, but they didn’t hold. I made pancakes with the remaining batter. Thanks!

    • That never happened in my waffle iron. Did you grease yours really well? Did you change anything to the recipe ? Let me know, I am happy to help. XOXO Carine.
