These Fortune Cookie Keto Waffles are light and fluffy on the inside and perfectly crispy on the outside. Best of all they can be ready in less than 30 minutes. They are a great recipe for meal prep - make 2 or 3 batches at a time, freeze them and then just pop them in the toaster when you are ready to eat.
This recipe is from my book 30 Minute Ketogenic Cooking. It has over 60 quick and easy keto recipes that take less than 30 minutes to prepare.
Ingredients in Fortune Cookie Keto Waffles
I decided to call these keto waffles from my book 30 Minute Ketogenic Cooking Fortune Cookie Keto Waffles, because they have that subtly, sweet vanilla flavor of a fortune cookie. Unlike a lot of low carb waffle recipes, these are nut free. They are made using coconut flour, cream cheese, and eggs as the main ingredients, making them low carb, gluten free, and incredibly light and fluffy.
Step by Step Instructions
How to make the best Keto Waffles
STEP 1: Combine the cream cheese, eggs, erythritol, heavy cream, and vanilla extract in a blender. Pulse until the mixture is smooth and the ingredients are well combined.
STEP 2: Add the dry ingredients - coconut flour and baking powder and pulse to combine. It may be necessary to use a rubber spatula to scrape down the blender jar and mix in any coconut flour that sticks to the sides.
STEP 3: Lightly grease the waffle iron with butter. Ladle the batter into the center of the waffle maker; the amount will vary depending on the capacity of your waffle iron. Consult the manufacturer’s directions for the recommended amount of batter.
STEP 4: Cook for 5 minutes, or until the waffle iron stops steaming. Repeat this process with the remaining batter, regreasing the waffle iron between waffles.
Top with sugar free syrup, fresh keto whipped cream, or keto-friendly sugar free jam.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have only tested recipe as written so I cannot guarantee its success with almond flour. Coconut flour and almond flour are not a 1:1 substitution. Coconut flour is extremely absorbent, making is necessary to add more liquid and more egg when baking with it

Fortune Cookie Keto Waffles
- Total Time: 30 minutes

These coconut flour waffles taste like breakfast and dessert all in one. When I made this keto waffle recipe for the first time, the flavor instantly reminded me of fortune cookies, hence the name. They have just enough sweetness to be delicious on their own but are equally delicious topped with a little bit of sugar-free maple syrup, jam or butter. Although these waffles don’t come with a fortune inside, they will definitely leave you feeling satisfied.
