Chocolate. Who doesn’t like it? Let me tell you, the percentage of the population that honestly dislike it is so tiny you could fit them into a one bedroom flat. There they would sit, miserably, not talking to each other. I would even go so far to say that chocolate haters are incapable of enjoying themselves if you’d let them out of that flat and put them up in a five star hotel.

How wonderfully versatile is coconut flour?
Until recently, I had only used it for making sweet dishes such as these low carb waffles and another family favourite, coconut blondies. Apart from tasting great, coconut flour is fantastically healthy – it is grain free, gluten free as well as high in protein and fibre, which makes it very filling indeed….

Is it possible to make tasty waffles without grains and sugar? Oh yes, it is. Keto low carb waffles – not just as good, but better than the real thing!
We do not have a sandwich maker at home. But I have inventive children with a wild, mad love for cheesy panini. So every once in a while the poor old waffle maker is dragged out and in goes some sliced bread with a gigantic stack of ingredients wedged in between. What comes out looks a bit tortured, but tastes great all the same.
As of yesterday, our waffle maker will be put to use a whole more often. For actual waffles, friends. For I have discovered a recipe that actually tastes better than the full-on wheat-and-sugar version. Who’d have thought that some eggs, butter, a few spoonfuls of coconut flour and a few other magic ingredients could make a whole noisy family quiet in astonishment for… well, at least five seconds. You want some happy silence? Make low carb waffles! Thank you for this one, DitchtheCarbs..
As you can see, I like my waffles with creme fraiche and blueberries – but any berry combination, whipped cream or a dollop of coconut cream would work well. Do you do school lunches? Make little heart-shaped waffle sandwiches filled with cream cheese and berries!
Friends, these low carb waffles are
- grain free
- sugar free
- freezable (between sheets of baking paper)
- without protein powders or other complicated ingredients
- delicious hot or cold
- adaptable – add cinnamon or mixed spice
The secret to supreme waffle fluffiness is to separate the egg whites and the yolks and beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. This mixture is then folded gently into the batter. I can assure you though that even if you do not manage to get your egg whites perfectly stiff – I find they can be a bit temperamental – the waffle will still turn out fabulous. As long as you manage to beat some air bubbles into your egg whites (i.e. make them turn white), you’re good to go.
If you do not have a waffle maker, just make low carb pancakes instead. They won’t look as pretty (I am a sucker for the little heart shapes), but definitely more handsome than my childrens’ tortured cheese sandwiches.

- 5 eggs, separated
- 4 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp xylitol, or sweetener of choice, to taste
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1-2 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp single cream
- 125g (1/2 cup) butter, unsalted and melted
- optional: 1 tsp cinnamon
- Whisk the egg whites until they are firm and form stiff peaks. You have to use a clean, non-greasy bowl for this and be a bit patient.
- In a second bowl, mix the egg yolks, coconut flour, sweetener and baking powder.
- Add the melted butter slowly and mix well to ensure your batter is nice and smooth.
- Add the milk and vanilla, mix well.
- Gently fold spoons of the whisked egg whites into the yolk mixture. Try to keep as much of the air and fluffiness as possible.
- Place enough of the waffle mixture into the warm waffle maker to make one waffle. Cook until golden. You might have to "grease" your waffle maker with a bit of butter so the waffles do not stick. They have a more delicate consistency than wheat waffles, so take extra care when removing them.
- Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
