Keto zucchini waffles – cheesy almond flour waffles

There is nothing easier than keto waffles and even the non keto eaters will devor those savory waffles in no time. Allyou need to make the most delicious crispy zucchini waffles are:

  • Zucchini – grated, skin on to ad fiber. Also make sure you squeeze out the extra juice from the zucchini before adding to the batter or they release juice an the water gets too moist
  • Eggs
  • Cheese – I love a combo of parmesan and mozzarella but mature cheddar will be great too
  • Garlic powder or fresh garlic
  • Salt
  • Almond flour or almond meal – both works

Can  I use something else than zucchini?

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

Nut free flours: if you don't like almond flour and you can use same amount of sunflower seed flour, or if not on keto diet you can use buckwheat flour, it is low GI healthy flour replacement too 
Cheese: any hard grated cheese works in this recipe like mozarella, edam, or cheddar. I used a blend of cheese for flavor it is up to you to choose your favorite one.

  1. 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.
