When I set out to make the best keto waffles that would be both keto and gluten-free I didn’t stop until I achieved a waffle that was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Not only did they have to taste amazing, but I didn’t want high inflammation ingredients like what you find in typical waffles.
Was that really too much to ask? Well, I am thrilled to report that I accomplished what I think to be an ideal low carb waffles.
How did I achieve this? By making a waffle batter using cream cheese, and eggs but also almond, coconut flour, keto-friendly sweetener, and a little psyllium husk powder for stability.
The addition of a tiny amount of psyllium powder is what makes the waffles crispy plus also makes these a great high fiber breakfast option. Imagine having a delicious way to add more fiber to your ketogenic diet?
That’s right that combination of ingredients produced the perfect fluffy waffles I was after and I can’t wait for you to try them!

Then it’s just a matter of using a toaster or toaster oven to warm them up.
These waffles are also loaded with nutrition and therefore quite filling, allowing you to enjoy a healthy waffle recipe.

Ingredients and Materials Needed
Best Sugar Substitutes For Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Waffles
As far as choosing your sweetener to make your low-carb, my top choice is a monk fruit and erythritol blend. My personal favorite is Lakanto’s brand. But you can also use Swerve an erythritol sugar substitute.
You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for most of my baked goods. However, if using Pyure you will want to use half the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter choice.
Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda for baking or a generic brand of the same. It will work with great success.
I know not everyone would agree with me here and I respect that but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.
Low Carb Syrup Options
The following are my favorite sugar-free syrup options that are sugar-free and keto-friendly.
