Here's everything that goes into my keto coconut flour waffles:
Coconut flour is the base of this recipe, giving my waffles an amazing texture while remaining low-carb and keto-friendly.
Butter or ghee
I use an ample amount of melted butter in my waffle recipe, adding great fat content to the dish.
For a paleo option filled with saturated fat, choose ghee instead.
While my coconut flour waffles does contain eggs, you can easily swap them for low-carb milk if you prefer.
These eggs act as a binder in this recipe.
To sweeten this recipe, I use just a touch of SweetLeaf stevia drops. This is an optional step, depending on your preferences.
A bit of salt enhances all the flavors in these tasty waffles.
Baking powder gives pillowy height to this recipe.
- Weigh your coconut flour for an accurate measurement and the perfect waffle consistency.
- Adjust the amount of coconut flour used if you find that the batter is too thick or thin.

Both coconut flour and almond flour make great keto waffle ingredients, offering a similar texture to wheat flour without the high carb count.
I recommend sweetening waffles with stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit sweetener. Avoid high-carb options like white or coconut sugar.

For a fruity delicacy, I like adding fresh strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries along with a sweet strawberry sauce.

Keto Belgian Coconut Flour Waffles
- In a blender, mix the butter and eggs until combined thoroughly.
- Add the stevia, salt and baking powder and mix to combine.
- Mix in the coconut flour until completely combined without any lumps. Let the batter sit for at least five minutes so it can thicken.
- May add in a little water if desired to thin the batter.
- Cook according to waffle maker instructions.
- Coconut oil may also be used in place of the butter or ghee.
- Adding heavy cream, almond milk, or coconut milk can be used in place of an egg or two. 3-4 tablespoons of liquid is needed to replace an egg.
- It's best to weigh the coconut flour if you can as cup measurement isn't as accurate. Because the flour tends to vary in absorbency, you may need to use a little less if the waffles come out dry and possibly a little more if the batter is too thin. Additional liquid can also be added to offset a thick batter.
