What’s the best way to start the day? I might have said a good night’s sleep… but that was before I had kids! Now I’ve got to count on other things… like coconut flour waffles! I created this coconut flour waffle recipe after many requests for a nut-free version. So, here it is! These easy keto waffles with coconut flour are a filling, healthy, and delicious way to start your day – whether you get a good night’s sleep or not!
So grab your waffle maker, it’s time to make coconut waffles! These are one of my favorite keto coconut flour recipes now.
My low carb coconut flour waffle recipe is super easy (everything is just blended together!) and takes just 5 minutes to prep. They’re as quick and easy as my coconut flour pancakes! Breakfast has never been better.
How To Make Coconut Flour Waffles
These keto waffles made with coconut flour are ready in just 10 minutes! Here’s how we make them:
- Heat your waffle maker. You want it nice and hot when you put the keto coconut waffle batter in the waffle maker.
- Make the coconut flour batter. Blend together coconut flour, eggs, cream cheese, butter, heavy cream, erythritol, baking powder, xanthan gum, and vanilla until smooth.
- Let the batter thicken. Simply let it sit for a few minutes to thicken up a bit.
TIP: If the batter is crumbly like cookie dough, add more milk or cream, a tablespoon at a time, until it’s a thick batter.
- Cook waffles. Scoop a scant 1 cup batter into the waffle maker, spread and cover. Cook according to the manufacturer instructions.
TIP: Coconut waffles are done when steam is no longer coming out the sides of the waffle maker.
- Use up remaining better. Repeat until you have none left.
TIP: For crispier waffles, heat them in the oven on an oven-safe cooling rack for a few minutes at 400 degrees F. You could also pop them in the toaster, but wait them to cool a bit so that they can stand up in there.
I like to top them with strawberries and homemade sugar-free whipped cream!
Are Coconut Waffles Keto?
Yes, this waffle recipe using coconut flour is keto! Each large waffle has just 7 grams net carbs.
How To Store Keto Waffles With Coconut Flour
Store these waffles in the fridge for 3-4 days, or freeze them to keep them longer than that.
Can You Freeze Coconut Flour Waffles?
Yes, you can definitely freeze these low carb waffles with coconut flour, and I highly recommend always keeping a stash of them in the freezer so that a healthy breakfast is always minutes away.
After the keto coconut flour waffles cool completely, store them in a freezer safe bag with parchment paper layers in between to prevent sticking.
Let thaw and microwave or reheat in the toaster until warm. A toaster or toaster oven works best!

Preheat your waffle maker.
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth.

Scoop a scant 1 cup (128 grams) batter into the waffle maker, spread and cover. Cook according to manufacturer instructions (usually about 4-5 minutes), or until steam is no longer coming out the sides. Carefully remove the waffle from the iron (it's fragile while it's hot).
Repeat with remaining batter.
Optional step: For crisper waffles, heat them in the oven on an oven-safe cooling rack for a couple of minutes at 400 degrees F (204 degrees C), or in a toaster oven.

What do I do if the batter is too thin? I love these and make them but sometimes it is too thin. Would using a blender be better?
Wholesome Yum D0
Hi Barb, I use a food processor for this recipe. You could add a tsp or two more coconut flour to make the batter a little thicker.
The best!! I keep in freezer so can grab whenever in a hurry, just stick in toaster!!
These are my new favorite waffle… light and delicious!
I made mine in a minim waffle maker, and they were great. Made extras to freeze.
These look fantastic!
I made this recipe for breakfast today. It made 7 mini waffles–4 for hubby and 3 for me. I wondered if they would taste like coconut, but they did not. After they cooled, we toasted them and topped them with butter and unsweetened syrup. They were delicious!
Omg this is the BEST keto waffle recipe I have ever made . The taste is just amazing.
I tried these on New Years Day.
They were fantastic! Nice texture and flavour. The only change I made was using a Maple extract instead of Vanilla.
I left them plain so that I could add any topping I felt like adding when I had a craving. I doubled the recipe and it made 14 waffles in a Dash Waffle maker.
Will definitely make again.
These are delicious! I love cinnamon, and these really hit the spot! I also enjoyed your video on measuring flour and followed your instructions – thank you; I have never been much of a baker and this was very helpful! I’ll be making more of these – what a delicious breakfast!
Wow! These waffles came out crispy and delicious, both in my Belgian and in my Norwegian waffle irons (super thin)! I paired them with the keto WholesomeYum maple flavored syrup,. So good! I found that setting the heat lower, than non-keto GF flour waffles, created consistent a golden brown color and crispness. The only different thing I did was to place the waffle, hot from the waffle iron, onto a cooling rack for 10-15 seconds, which made for a crispy bottom and top. No need for crisping in my air fryer. These waffles don’t weigh down my husband’s stomach and mine with the heavy feeling from eating almond flour waffles. Making enough for 3 servings, the recipe made 4 Belgian waffles and 3 Norwegian waffles. This is a keeper for sure.
My 4 year old grandson and I loved these coconut waffles!
They are a little bit eggy, any way to make it less eggy flavor? Tks
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Elizabeth, If you find these to be a little eggy, try adding a small pinch of salt. That should help balance the flavors.
Great for my husband who is Diabetic!!
Made these the other night.. I was out of cream cheese so I used full fat Greek yogurt plain.. I also used my dash waffle maker instead of a Belgian waffle (3 Chaffle sized equals 1 Belgian) they were beyond delicious!! Even my kids ( 2 years and 8 month old) devoured them!!
I have made these waffles 2x following the recipe (-the xanthan gum). The waffles were very tasty but the batter was very thin not sure why?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Mary, Did you let the batter sit before using it? Coconut flour is very absorbent and will thicken up considerably once it sits for 5-10 minutes. Xanthan gum is also thickener, so if you skipped it, the batter will be thinner than what is shown in the video.
I love this recipe. I use it to make both waffles and pancakes, depending on my mood. It scales well and has a smoother texture than similar almond flour based recipes. I do sub out straight-up allulose for the called-for sweetener. Just a personal preference. The vanilla is exchangeable with other extracts, but not always on a 1:1 basis. One very important note: be SURE to let the batter rest to thicken up. It makes a huge difference. A real win in my house.
I realize that we make sacrifices to “keto-ize” our favourite food. I am limited because I need nut free as well. I followed the recipe, substituting Splenda for the recommended sweetener that doesn’t agree with me. I did toast it at the end. It came out quite delicate and tender, tasted and had the texture of moist French toast. They were quite eggy. I had to be very careful removing them from the waffle iron if I wanted it in one piece. Experimented by letting one cook longer. Not much difference. It was OK. Will continue my search.
If I make mini waffles, what would the serving size be compared to the larger waffle size in the recipe?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Nicole, The Dash mini waffle irons make approximately 2 waffles per 1 regular-sized waffle. I hope this helps!
I bought a waffle maker so I could make keto waffles. I made these and I was very happy. I didn’t have xanthan gum so made without. What REALLY made me happy was the wholesome yum maple syrup I ordered at the same time. O.M.G. Game Changer! I have been gluten free and low carb since 2013. So I haven’t had waffles since at least that long, probably longer. I’ve made the occasional (green banana flour) pancake and used real maple syrup as a once a year treat. The wholesome yum maple syrup tastes so close to the real thing. I can have pancakes/waffles regularly now! SO HAPPY! AND in ketosis. Also, I moved on to chaffles and they are superior to these. If you can’t have cheese, hey this recipe is great too. Make the keto waffles. Get the syrup. You will be happy. Thank you so much for bringing both to my attention. xo
I tried making these with egg substitute but no matter how done the outside was, the inside was gooey. Any sugestions? TIA
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Allison, What type of egg substitute did you use? If you used flax eggs to replace the chicken eggs in the recipe, then your waffles may turn out a bit gummy inside. Usually, flax eggs work best for recipes that only call for 1-2 eggs. I hope this helps.
I made these this morning and they were superb!! Definitely 5 stars!
I make a big batch and keep it in the freezer, so easy to warm up in the morning for a quick breakfast!! My husband , children, and grand kids love!!
Can you add bananas and nuts to this recipe?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Vikki, Adding bananas would greatly affect the carb count if you are following a keto diet. If you are not watching your carbs, feel free to add sliced bananas as a topping for your waffle, but not mixing them in the batter. Bananas would make the recipe too wet. Chopped nuts would work fine in the recipe. Enjoy!
Oh my goodness!!!!! HEAVEN! Loved this recipe so much that I made it 2 days in a row for breakfast. I have a mini waffle maker so it made 7 mini waffles! I used all of the ingredients purchased from your site and topped them off with Wholesome Yum KETO Maple Syrup!!!! DELISH!!!!!!
These are so yummy! I’ve made these twice. The second time I didn’t have cream cheese so even without that they are good. I never have heavy whipping cream but used almond milk and they were still good! My only recommendations would be to mix the dry ingredients first and then mix with the wet ones and I would use melted butter. 5 stars.
Does this work as a pancake recipe?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Donna, This is the recipe I use for Coconut Flour Pancakes. It’s similar, but I think it’s a better texture for pancakes.
I made these today for my husband who has to lower his A1C level and who loves flour and sweets. They were really good even with the stevia sweetener (of which I’m not a fan). I poured all the ingredients into my mixer and did have to add more almond milk. Next time I will mix the dry ingredients separately from the wet and then combine. It might not affect the taste but when I dumped everything in together as the recipe suggests there were a few dry lumps.
Hello Maya, do you think this would work using coconut cream or peanut butter in place of the cream cheese? I’d really like to try your waffle recipes but I can’t tolerate almonds or dairy. Thank you in advance
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Tamera, Can you tolerate eggs? I have this recipe that might suit your needs better: Flourless Low Carb Waffles.
I made these waffles tonight and they were delicious! They turned out so light and fluffy. I’ve tried a few Keto waffle recipes before but this one is hands down my favourite. I used coconut cream instead of heavy cream, topped with a dollop of blueberry cream cheese plus a few fresh blueberries and strawberries. Yum!! Thanks for the recipe : )
I love the recipe but not the website. It has so many ad popups and I need to scroll down through all bla bla with ads until I get to ingredient list. This should be at the very top so everybody could see if this recipe is something they are looking for.

Hi Lyudmila, Thanks for your feedback. Ads keep the Wholesome Yum website running and allow me to develop recipes that readers like you can access absolutely free. However, you may be interested in Wholesome Yum Plus, which includes an ad-free version of the website, along with other perks.
Made these last night. Wow! So yummy and they don’t even taste like they’re keto. Served them with fresh cut strawberries, a dollop of marscapone and sugar free maple syrup. Yum! Would definitely make these again.
Hi! Just wanted to let you know I tried this in the silicon mold with some slight tweaks to the recipe. Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe. You are amazing and my inspiration! I come here almost everyday for inspiration on my next meal.
Can I make this using silicon mould instead of waffle maker?
Maya | Wholesome Yum0
Hi Joanne, I haven’t tried that, but saw your other comment and am glad it worked out for you.
In the nutritional facts it states 3g of sugar. Can you tell me which ingredient this comes from? They look amazing!
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Jennifer, There isn’t any sugar in this recipe, but the coconut flour does have some natural sugars in it. It may vary slightly by brand, so be sure to read labels before choosing your brand.
Delicious, best keto friendly waffle recipe I’ve made!
What would be a good substitute for the cream cheese in this recipe?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Jasmyn, If you are dairy-free then I suggest using dairy-free cream cheese. If you don’t have any cream cheese on hand, then it’s probably best to go with a different recipe. I suggest trying one of these: Vanilla Protein Waffles, Almond Flour Waffles, or Flourless Low Carb Waffles.
This was a little more work than other chaffle recipes I have tried but it was worth it…IMO these tasted the closest to the carb loaded waffles…top with a some butter and Mrs. Butterworth’s sugar free syrup, it was delicious!
Can you substitute xanthan gum in this recipe with flax mill ?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Melissa, The xanthan gum is optional, so you can leave it out of the recipe if you don’t have any on hand. If you’d like to use the flax meal anyway, I think it will work fine.
Made this for breakfast – yum!
I’m always amazed by the fluffiness of coconut flour recipes! These waffles are spot on.
These waffles are amazing! I already had coconut flour, and everything else was at my grocery store. Thanks for the recipe!
I am not what you’d call a morning person, but I would leap out of bed for these delicious waffles!! Yum!!
I would love to try these….I love coconut and dairy has always been a problem for me!!
