Recently one of my readers contacted me about my original zucchini waffle recipe which had cheese as an ingredient. She was disappointed because she was looking for a dairy free waffle recipe. So I came up with these keto vegetable waffles with her in mind.
It turned out to be my husband’s favorite low carb breakfast so I’m glad I did! Each of these waffles has only 4.5g net carbs, 6.1g protein and they are gluten free, dairy free and keto. You can’t beat that!
What veggies I used
I used zucchini, carrots and onion in this veggie waffle recipe. These veggies work well but you could also use grated cauliflower too. They add bulk, taste and nutrtion to the recipe.
The keto waffle ingredients
A note about nutritional yeast: this adds a healthy nutty, cheesy flavor to the waffles. If you are not concerned about being dairy free and don’t have any nutritional yeast you can substitute with grated parmesan cheese.
Let’s make some savory waffles!
- Hand grate the zucchini, carrots and onion. You can also place these in the food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
- Place these grated vegetables into a tea towel and wring out all of the water. This is important as it would effect final result.
- In a large bowl, add eggs and beat with a fork. Add that the grated vegetables and the rest of the ingredients leaving the coconut oil for last.
- Heat up your waffle maker and use coconut oil to grease it if your iron calls for that.
- Place 1/4 cup of the batter into the middle of the waffle iron and cook your waffle. Continue with the rest of the batter.
My new favorite waffle iron.
I have two waffle irons, one is an Oster waffle iron which is full size and now my Dash mini waffle maker. Both are inexpensive and excellent for keto waffles.
I used my Dash mini waffle maker for these kind of recipes and they work perfectly! The small size is good because these are filling and I don’t think you need more than one for a snack or breakfast.
As I’ve mentioned my husband is a big fan of these keto vegetable waffles. I’m surprised to be honest because he hates zucchini. I’ve tried all summer to make something with zucchini he likes and this is the only recipe he’ll eat. This and the other zucchini waffle that is.
