New Low Carb Coconut Flour Waffles Recipe (Still 5 carbs per waffle!)

New Low Carb Coconut Flour Waffles Recipe (Still 5 carbs per waffle!)

Hello low carb world! This past week I had a hankering for something that was filling, sweet, and low carb. Waffles are a definite staple and favorite in my household. I would even venture to state that they are one of my fiancees favorite breakfast items. Of course, she also loves donuts a whole lot (which may be my next recipe). I decided to try out a new variation on my browned butter coconut flour waffles recipe, and boy these turned out great! In these low carb waffles, I decided to forgo the butter and up the coconut oil content, and they definitely tasted great. Although there wasn’t that nutty flavor from the browned butter, the extra coconut oil added a bit more decadence to the flavor profile of these waffles. Topped with some Walden Farms Zero Calorie, Zero Carb Syrup, these are definitely going to be one of my go to breakfast/brunch favorites. Check them out!

    1. Thanks so much! I love waffles, and I think making them low carb makes them even better. Let me know how they turn out!

  1. Those waffles look amazing!! Where do you buy the coconut flour? This will be my first time using coconut flower, will there be any difference in texture? Is there another flour I could use if I can’t find coconut flour? Thanks!

    1. The waffles were definitely yummy. I use Better Body Organic Coconut Flour for these waffles. There’s a link above in the ingredients or you can find the link on my supported products page. You could also maybe find them in health stores or a regular grocery store. If you were to use another flour I would maybe try out almond flour, but they do tend to be higher in carbs. Let me know if you try them out and how they turn out!

  2. Hi Pete,
    Great info here. I have been trying to go and stay low-carb for sometime now. Just need the motivation to keep it up. Great idea with the waffles. One of my favorite foods.

    1. Waffles are definitely on my top list of breakfast foods that I love. Well I actually think these could be great for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. It’s difficult starting out on a low carb diet. Especially when the options seem limited to dry chicken and bland veggies. Keep at the low carb life, it’s worth it!

    1. It was difficult for me to find good replacements for low carb foods that I love. That’s why I decided to make up some of my own! I am glad you like the recipe. I hope you try it out sometime and let me know how they turn out!

  3. Coconut Flour is an eye opener and I think it could be the way forward. Sadly, I think it is an exotic component in my part of the world, although I will keep an eye open for it.

    Thanks for the tip

    1. Coconut flour is one of the best and most versatile ingredients that I have in my low carb cooking arsenal. I include a link above to where can you purchase them online if you are interested in finding them. A rather large container of the flour I get is about 12-13 on Amazon. You can check it out here Better Body Organic Coconut Flour. I do get a small referral fee if you do purchase, so thanks if you do decide to get it!

    1. I had never even heard about coconut flour until a couple months ago. I think they are definitely worth it to try them out.

  4. How healthy is coconut flour compared to regular white flour?

    Usually people say that flour isn’t a healthy carb source.

    Delicious looking waffles though! 😀

    1. Coconut flour is a definitely healthier alternative to regular white flour. It contains healthy fats, protein, and low effective carbohydrates. It is also high in fiber, and it is gluten and wheat free. The blood sugar impact is much lower than regular white flower as well, which is related to creating weight gain. A couple good articles that outlines this can be found here

      The taste is also a great alternative to regular flour. I hope you try out the recipe and let me know how they turn out!

  5. Oh man! If there’s two things I love it’s waffles and anything coconut flavored. I never even heard of coconut flour. Who knew that existed?!

    I’m definitely going to buy some and try out your recipe. Great info Pete!

    1. Coconut flour was definitely a game changer for me! I think they are one of the best non-flour flours (if that makes sense?) that I have found. There are of course almond four, peanut flour, flax meal, etc. but all of those have some downfalls. Although coconut flour is not perfect, I have found that it has one of the best tastes and lowest carbs for amount used. I definitely hope you try it out, and let me know what you think!

  6. The waffles look great. I love coconut anything. LOL. I am going to have to look into the benefits of using coconut flour. It looks good and the numbers add up I will be giving it a try 😉

    1. Coconut flour is a great substitute for regular flour. They are high in healthy fats, low in effect carbohydrates, contain protein and fiber, and they taste awesome! I hope you do try them out and let me know how you like them!

  7. I love waffles! They’re my favorite breakfast! I had no idea coconuts could be used for waffles, of all things.

    I don’t really count carbs, but I see how this recipe benefits those who do. Regardless, I still have to try this out of sheer curiosity. It looks delicious.

    How does the calorie count compare to a regular waffle? Great recipe Pete!

    1. Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast options as well! I never knew coconuts even had flour or could be made into flour until relatively recently. The calorie counts are actually both pretty similar. In fact, doing a quick google search for calories in a regular waffle showed to be 412 calories. The same as these coconut flour waffles! There will be of course variations depending on the other ingredients, but I thought that was pretty neat. If you do try these, let me know, and I hope you enjoy them!

  8. Awesome info! I thought I was going to have to give up waffles on this low carb diet but I’m pretty glad to see that’s not the case! Thanks for the informative read!

    1. You are absolutely welcome! I’ve learned that being on a low carb diet does NOT mean that you have to give up your favorite foods. They just need to be modified somewhat. Although I am a huge meat eater already (which makes low carb easy for me), I also love my pizza, waffles, fried chicken and everything else that is not all that good for you. I hope you try out the waffles recipes. They are definitely a keeper in my book!

  9. Hi Pete,
    What a great recipe you have! I love waffles but your suggestion looks especially delicious. Your recipe is easy to follow and I think I should be rewarding myself with a low carb coconut flour waffle soon 😛

    1. I think every day is a good day for one of these low carb waffles! Since they aren’t bad for you, they are a perfect treat for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner! I’m glad they look delicious to you, and I hope you try them out!

  10. Mmm, waffles are certainly a stable in any breakfast meal and these look like a great addition. I love how they are low carb as low carb waffles is often hard to find. I am looking forward to trying these out!

    1. You are definitely not lying when you say that low carb waffles are hard to find. In fact, I don’t think that I have ever seen them! I hope you do try these out, and let me know how they turn out!

  11. Hi Pete

    Who says low carb food can’t taste good. These waffles look amazing. I try to stay fit and eat healthy and I just love waffles. Thanks for this recipe I am definitely making this tomorrow.

    Helen

    1. I absolutely agree. Living a low carb lifestyle is not about dry chicken and bland veggies. At least not the way I live mine. I hope you do make them and let me know how they turn out! Thanks for visiting!

  12. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I am definitely going to try it. Always looking for great desert recipes that aren’t harmful to the waistline 🙂
