Chocolate Peanut Butter Waffles
***** UPDATED RECIPE 7/5 ******
WAFFLES! I LOVE WAFFLES!
I love all kinds of waffles. But when you throw peanut butter and chocolate into the batter, well, then I REALLY LOVE waffles!
I'm a creature of habit and tend to always have some variations of eggs for breakfast. But today is a lazy day after 4th of July and I wanted to make the kiddos something fun!
And what could be more fun that keto chocolate peanut butter waffles?
I have a Belgium waffle maker that knocks out HUGE waffles. This batter is the perfect amount to crank out 2 large, fluffy waffles. Nobody can eat a whole one, so we all have half.
There is an optional ingredient in the list. It is PB2. IF you've never had it before, it is a powdered version of peanut butter that saves the carbs! This is optional because while you don't need it, it will bump up the peanut butter flavor without increasing the carbs.
Even keto peanut butter can rack up the carbs!
What toppings can I have on my keto chocolate peanut butter waffles?
The sky is the limit! Well, not quite, but you can certainly get creative!
I have to admit that I love butter on pretty much everything. Even before keto. My childhood favorite sandwich is a peanut butter and butter sandwich. It grosses my kids out to think about, but they were GOOD!
Aside from butter, I like using Lakanto Maple Syrup. A perfect choice for those that love syrup.

Another favorite is homemade keto whipped cream. You can use my very popular keto whipped cream OR you can make a special version like I did this time! The only difference was that I used 1 tablespoon of powdered Lakanto golden monkfruit instead of regular granular monkfruit! And I even threw in a few Lily's chocolate chips.
Are waffles high in carbs?
Non keto waffles are generally pretty high in carbs. Even keto waffles are higher than the average keto breakfast. The net carbs in 1/2 a large waffle is 4g. So that is on the higher side, but still perfectly keto!
How do I make sure my waffles don't stick?
This is a tricky one. There are 2 ways to make sure they don't stick. For me, all I have to do is grease my waffle maker with olive oil before putting the batter in. Now, if the batter is not good batter, then all bets are off. I've made bad waffles before where the batter was just, well, bad and it stuck and crumbled.
Another way that you can keep it from sticking is often to put some butter or coconut oil IN the batter. I did not need to do this with THIS batter and MY waffle maker. If you find that yours stick, you can add a small amount of butter or coconut oil and that should fix the problem!
- 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 1/4 cup powdered Lakanto golden monkfruit
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened powdered cocoa
- 1 tablespoon PB2 (OPTIONAL)
- 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup unsweetened keto approved peanut butter
- Prepare your waffle maker as specified. I have a large Belgium waffle maker and I put a light coating of olive oil on it prior to use.
- Preheat waffle maker as you prepare the batter.
- In a medium bowl, add almond flour, monkfruit, cocoa, baking powder and optional PB2. Mix well.
- Add beaten eggs and peanut butter. Using a spatula mix until well combined.
- Add batter to waffle maker and cook as specified by your waffle maker instructions. This is enough batter to make 2 very large waffles or more smaller ones.
