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.

    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.

      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. 🙂

      Regards

    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.

    I made this for dinner tonight. Only had a peanutbutter-chia blend, this worked pretty well! I ‘sweetened’ some creme fraiche for the topping….yummy!

    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.

    This is good, thanks. And not surprisingly, fairly strong peanut flavor. They did cook up crisp.

    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!
