Peanut Butter Keto Waffles

Keto waffles and a love story

This is a long one, so stay with me. Growing up in my house, we had one of those multi-purpose sandwich grills with interchangeable plates. They could be used as a panini press, to grill meat and to make waffles! My mother had a secret recipe that made the most incredible waffles, served with butter and pancake syrup and a side of pork sausages. When I’d just met my then girlfriend, Deepti, I invited her over for a waffle breakfast. She fell in love with them, and consequently, me, and we built a relationship on a strong foundation on crisp-yet-fluffy waffles and oodles of butter. A couple of years after, the waffle machine went kaput; our relationship, thankfully, did not. Yet, it must be said, I promised poor Deepti waffles every week, but they never arrived. Nevertheless, she married me, and a few months later we picked up a new waffle machine. But we were also on keto, so I had to find a workaround. After some trial and lots of errors, I found it, the perfect keto waffle – a keto breakfast favourite was born. (And my wife loves me again.)



Low carb peanut butter waffles

In this ridiculously easy recipe, peanut butter provides the stability to the waffle, and also makes a great dessert. It’s ideal to use homemade peanut butter, or a brand that is essentially just selling pure peanut butter. Most big brands use unhealthy oils in it as well as sugar, so it’s always a better idea to make a batch at home.

Despite the peanut butter, these waffles don’t taste overwhelmingly of it, so they’re very versatile. Top your waffles with sugar free maple syrup if you can find it where you live, or use whipped cream like I do and some dark chocolate ganache. Whatever it is you choose, I promise you won’t for a second miss those wicked refined flour waffles.

  1. Hi,
    Love your videos. You doing an awesome job.
    I have a small request. I am currently on Keto and do not consume eggs. I was wondering if you could post the peanut butter waffle recipe without eggs and some other dessert recipes that are egg-less.

    1. Hi Ekta,
      I will try but eggs are an integral part of these recipes, it’s what keeps these items glued together. So it’s quite a hard task to find a replacement that works the way an egg does. 🙂


  2. I love this recipe. I don’t eat peanut butter and am happy to report how completely forgiving this recipe is. I have now done this recipe twice. Once with sunbutter. And now with almond butter and cacao powder. This recipe is a work of genius. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much, really glad to know this has worked well with other butters. Thank you for the kind words.

    2. I only have almond butter so I came hoping to find reviews saying that this works with other butters – thank you!

  3. Absolutely amazing! Crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. We were invited to a waffle brunch so I brought my own batter. I let the non Keto skeptics try a bite and they all said, “wow, these are fantastic!”
    Keep doing your magic creating amazing Keto recipes.

  4. These waffles are RIDICULOUSLY delicious! I’ve made them twice now. The first time, it made a bit of a mess because I tried making only 2 waffles out of it. The batter turns out a little thin, probably due to a difference in the peanut butter I used, so the second time, I made four waffles, which came out wonderfully crunchy. I recommend adding a bit of salt, too. I think I’ll try using these as bread for some sort of sandwich or as the base for a cheesy appetizer.

    Thanks SO MUCH, Sahil, for another truly great keto recipe. You are the MAN!

  5. These were great! They taste very close to the real thing and when topped with homemade butter and syrup it is hard to tell the difference. I used Almond butter. All other recipes that I have seen require Almond flour, Coconut flour, or both. I would think using a smooth butter would help with the texture and lessen any grittiness. Just started Keto diet so hope to go through all of your Indian dishes. I have a slew of Indian dishes that I won’t be able to use anymore. My wife is Indian so I have a good judge. Keep up the great work!

  6. Dear Mr Makhija,
    This morning, my daughter made waffles with mushrooms (yummity-yum) and wheat flour (the horror!!!) so I researched keto waffles and came across this recipe, among others. What appealed to me were the comments under the recipe for their lack of negativity and the ease of method. I only read a few but enough to be convinced.
    These waffles are really good! Light, fluffy, tasty and filling, they are to be added to my slow growing stash of easy keto recipes that I love and can easily make.
    Thank you very much for helping me to stay keto, something I have struggled with over the last 4 months and after a very promising beginning too.

  7. These are delicious! I beat the egg whites before adding them because this is what I’ve done with other more traditional waffle batter. They turned out golden, light and fluffy. I haven’t made them without beating the eggs so I can’t compare the consistency but I wanted to share this tip. Thanks for a great recipe!

  8. First let me say I have been following your recipes and videos over a year. Tell everyone about your wonderful recipes, entertaining videos and website. Getting back into “Strict Keto” now. Made these peanut butter waffles this morning. ❤️ How completely surprising these are, easy, delicious, the lovely aromas emanating from the waffle iron while cooking are tantalizingly. Had to comment immediately. They were perfect. I used powdered dark cocoa mixed with heavy cream for drizzling.
    No stevia, the cream sweetened the cocoa powder just enough. Perfect. Thanks a million for this wonderful recipe. I will make these for company they never need to know what’s missing. Thanks again.

  9. Hi Sahil, I am an a id follower and love your recipes and vlogs!
    Just bought a wafflemaker and made these. Used almond butter and as had no HFWC mixed some sourcream with almond milk. Also added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla and some cinnamon.
    They turned out beautiful and taste wonderful, I left them on a bit longer to crisp them up but that seemed to dry them out more then make them crisp. Two 1/4 waffles are very filling( 1/4) of recipe. Served with a drizzle of heated up hazelnut butter eg homemade keto Nutella and a bit more of the sourcream. . Seriously delicious. Am going to try to toast the remainder and see if that crisps them up a bit.
    Thanks for another delicious recipe! I love seeing your family tasting the recipes with you and have a bit of a crush on your handsome dad( being a woman of a certain age?).

  10. I am so excited to try this, but what is the amount of stevia? Is it just to taste? About how much? Thanks!

  11. We tried these this morning and they were brilliant!! Thank you so much. They are helping me as i transition into the keto lifestyle.

  12. I’ve been doing keto almost 3 months now trying several pancake recipes and they all sucks. But your recipe is the BEST for a waffle and pancake batter! They were splendid

  13. I tries these this morning and can say without a doubt best keto waffle yet and I have tried many… any chance you will come out with a milk chocolate waffle 🙂
    Love the creation you and your wife have contributed to Keto.
    Thank You

    1. Nothing in particular really because I live in India and I guess what we have available here is different from other parts of the world.

  14. Hi Sahil,

    You are my favorite go-to site for keto recipes!
    Thank you very much for taking the time to create and post your creations :o)


  15. Wow !!! These are by far the best keto waffles we have made yet !!! Probably the best waffle period !!! Definitely my new go to …. I did make one small addition . I followed the instructions and my first waffle was oozing out … So I added 1 tbs coconut flour to the batter …. Perfect no more oozing lol … Thank you for yet another awesome recipe !!!!

  16. Can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this yet! I made this loads all through lockdown in 2020 but I haven’t made waffles in ages so I figured this recipe was definitely way overdue. Needless to say these come out PERFECT every time, and I have made them variously with almond butter or peanut butter and often substitute the cream cheese for full fat Greek yoghurt (which we are more likely to have at home). This is perfect for all sorts of toppings, from nut butters, to keto jam, to keto caramel to keto maple syrup and keto lemon curd, and, of course, Marmite! :))) Thank you so much for a fantastic recipe!
