These keto true Carnivore waffles are a perfect change of pace when you want something a little different! The same batter can be used to make a loaf of carnivore bread as well!
Keto Carnivore Waffles
I’m in the middle of a 30 day Carnivore challenge. If you have ever done one before, you probably get it when I say that I needed something that was meat but didn’t look or taste like meat?
Read about my first 30 day Carnivore challenge here.
I cannot take credit for coming up with these carnivore waffles. There was a carnivore bread recipe posted in a facebook group that had apparently come from another facebook group and even after some googling I could find nothing like it in order to give credit.
My first thought when I saw the carnivore bread was that it could be made into waffles and so I changed it up and here we are!
What are Keto Carnivore Waffles made of?
It should be no surprise that they would be made of mostly meat! :-)
You are going to need:
- ground chicken or turkey
- ground beef
- parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese
- waffle maker (I used full size maker)
And yet they don’t taste like these ingredients!
The original carnivore bread recipe did call for a starch free baking powder. I made a batch of waffles both with the baking powder and without the baking powder and if you look at the image, there is literally no difference.
I could not taste any difference either.
However, because you want the bread to rise and not be a dense eggy mass, the baking powder is a must if you make the loaf of bread!
Do Keto Carnivore Waffles taste like Waffles?
If you are asking will they be crisp on the outside and light and fluffy inside, then sorry, the answer is no.
BUT, they taste good! Just in a different way!
Note: I purposely did not add spices to these waffles resulting in a plain and neutral flavor. Feel free to make them zesty or not, depending on what carnivore protocol you are following.
My first try, I put butter and sugar free syrup on them and they made a pretty damn good substitute for waffles while doing carnivore. Although most people doing carnivore would frown on that sugar free syrup.
The next day, I decided to embrace the fact that they are meat and I made a savory dip for them instead. And that was pretty darn good as well! I’ve included that dip recipe for you below:
Another way that you could enjoy these waffles as a carnivore meal is with this classic beef liver pate.
I think that would be super delicious!
Other Tips and Comments about the Keto Carnivore Waffles
- Blend as smooth as possible in blender for best texture results
- You can use the same batter to make a loaf of bread or even muffins. Add some non starch containing baking powder for the bread.
- Both the waffles and the sliced bread are excellent toasted.
- You can also make carnivore chaffles with the mini waffle maker, this recipe will make at least 10 chaffles
- The sliced carnivore bread makes an amazing grilled cheese sandwich.
- The carnivore waffles make a good cold snack, especially if you spread with the french onion bacon dip.
- Don’t smell the batter before baking just because.
- Do not skip the step about simmering the meat in water for a few minutes. Your waffle maker will thank you!
- If you are making the bread loaf, allow the cooked meat to cool completely overnight or at least a few hours.

What percentage of fat for the ground beef do you recommend? 80/20 or leaner? Considering ground chicken and turkey does not have much fat
Around here I can only buy lean ground beef so that’s what I use. But pretty much any fat in the meat is going to drain away when you cook the meat and drain it for the recipe. But you can always add butter to the top of the waffles or bread if you want more fat.
is it possible to leave out the cheese?
I don’t see why not! There’s not that much anyways so I would just give it a try.
Please Please Please can you post a video and details for an exact recipe with measurements oven temperatures d timing..container size,,, how much baking powder etc. for the CARNIVOROUS BREAD. I get frozen and cannot work without an exact recipe! A video for that will be very helpful too!
ok! I’m recording a Carnivore Pizza tonight and I’ll put this one on for this weekend!
I look forward to the Carnivore Pizza recipe! Where do I find your recipes??? Do you have Facebook group that I can join?? I am not on Instagram or twitter… only Facebook.
Yes, you can join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KetogenicWoman
Anita, would you say you facebook postings would be helpful for carnivores?
Thank you for all you do!
Can you explain what you mean? I do have a private Facebook group. There are carnivores in it but there are also many people who are low carb and keto of all kinds. So it is not a Carnivore group if that is what you are asking? The group welcomes any woman who is trying to lower their carbs no matter what that looks like.
Ooooh I am really excited about that! I have never baked in my whole life so it is daunting. I ordered a set of 3 mini loaf pans to make little square loaves as I am on a very low calorie low carb diet!! I made the carnivorous waffles and that was a absolute game changer for me!!! No more cauliflower breads or waffles ever again. I am looking forward to a SQUARE shaped loaf so that I can make ultra thin slices of the bread and make a CLUB SANDWICH which actually looks and feels like eating a real sandwich. I did an intense research for carnivorous bread and there was only one other recipe by 2 sisters whose herb C bread was way too thin and did not look like a loaf at all… so your recipe will be the first for a square bread. I saw the photo you posted. Looked awesome!!
Thank You so much!!!!
