These cream cheese stuffed keto waffles are an excellent base for a savory or sweet low carb breakfast. Eggs, mayo and almond flour are used in this recipe to keep the carb count extremely low without sacrificing flavor.
Breakfast food is my jam. I’ll eat it any time, day or night. Aside from being tasty, it’s simple, quick and satisfying. Traditional waffles are loaded with carbohydrates, so it takes a little creativity to pull off a waffle that is low in carbs, high in flavor, with minimal ingredients. I absolutely adore waffles, so I play around with different variations quite a bit (like my Chocolate Protein Waffles). I’m really excited to share this creation; it’s my favorite waffle to date!
One of the things I’ve always appreciated about waffles is how easily they come together. Simply mix the ingredients to form a batter and pour on a hot waffle iron. Boom. Waffles. Although the ingredients for keto waffles may be a bit unconventional, the preparation is essentially the same.
If you’re following a low carb or ketogenic diet, it’s highly likely you’ll have all these ingredients on hand right now: eggs, mayonnaise, almond flour (or meal), and cream cheese. That’s right, there’s a good chance you can whip these up without running to the grocery store first! And you absolutely should, they are mighty delicious and so easy.
Grease your waffle iron and turn it on. While the iron is heating up, mix the eggs, mayo and almond flour with a hand mixer or blender. Cut up the cream cheese into small cubes. Fill the hot waffle iron with batter and place several of the cream cheese cubes throughout the waffle wells before pressing the iron down. These little cubes will form warm, velvety pockets of cream cheese throughout the waffle and they are so good. Yum! Just cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the waffles are golden brown.
The keto waffles are very filling, so just one waffle will do! You can eat them as-is or top with berries, whipped cream, butter, or a low carb sugar-free syrup. I topped mine with berry compote made with erythritol instead of sugar!
