I get really excited when I discover recipes that require just a handful of ingredients. Actually, this entire blog is comprised of recipes with ten ingredients or less, but when I create a recipe that has only three or four ingredients, that’s the best. Even better when it’s a breakfast or brunch recipe, because that is unquestionably the superior meal of the day. And, these flourless low carb waffles are right up there. I’m more than happy to have breakfast for dinner any day.
This recipe for almond butter paleo waffles checks all the boxes for breakfast, brunch, or anytime you’re craving a good waffle. It’s low carb, keto-friendly, paleo, and gluten-free. The waffles turn out beautifully golden, with a slightly crispy exterior, while the inside is nice and soft. Yes, this is what low carb waffles are supposed to be like!
The incredible part is that the batter has no flour of any kind, not even coconut or almond flour. Instead, the main ingredients are eggs and almond butter, which surprisingly do not yield an eggy tasting or soggy result at all. Gluten-free baking powder makes the waffles nice and fluffy, yet the outside turns out crisp. I used erythritol to sweeten them slightly. Any sweetener you like will work, though.
These low carb waffles have a slightly nutty taste, but it’s not too strong to be overpowering. The flavor is actually pretty neutral, just waiting for you to customize it to your liking. It’s truly a basic blank canvas kind of recipe. Feel free to add any fillings that you enjoy in waffles, or any toppings you prefer… or keep them plain and classic. Versatility is what this paleo waffles recipe is all about. I actually prefer them just as they are, keeping the recipe at four simple ingredients that I can blend together in a minute.
What do you like to top your low carb waffles with? I love these with a little grass-fed butter and my four-ingredient sugar-free maple syrup. If you aren’t strict keto, you can also try pairing them with a chicken apple sausage recipe.

- Follow manufacturer instructions to finish cooking. (On my waffle maker, I set the temperature to medium and waited until steam was no longer coming out - about 4 1/2 minutes.)
- Repeat step 2 with the remaining batter.

- If you use unsalted or raw almond butter, add a pinch of sea salt.
