Low-Calorie Waffles Recipe

Sweet Homemade Berry Belgian Waffles

It’s a real treat to have waffles when you are on a weight loss plan, and we have just the recipe for a delicious low-carb version, so you can enjoy them guilt-free.  

Because these waffles are low in carbs and calories, they make the perfect breakfast choice when you’re following the OPTIFAST Intermittent Fasting or OPTIFAST Partial Meal Replacement plan, which allows you to combine some conventional foods with your OPTIFAST meal replacement products. Also, the eggs in this recipe provide protein which helps to fill you up, while the coconut sugar gives these waffles a touch of sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth.  

So, to help keep your total daily calories low and one step closer to your goals, why not enjoy these low-calorie waffles for breakfast, followed by an OPTIFAST Shake for lunch, and a warming OPTIFAST Soup for dinner. 

You can also make these low-carb waffles for a weekend breakfast and top them with some fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey – just bear in mind that these toppings will increase your total daily calorie count. Find out why breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

How to Make Low-Calorie Waffles

Low-Calorie Waffles

Makes 1 waffle


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or use half a vanilla pod)
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 30 g coconut flour
  • 100 ml milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • Optional toppings: cinnamon, fresh fruit, honey

Allergens: contains egg, milk (if dairy sourced milk used), almonds (nuts) 


  1. Begin by separating the eggs, keeping the whites in one mixing bowl and the yolks in another. 

  2. Next, use an electric whisk and whip the egg whites into stiff peaks and set aside 

  3. Add the coconut sugar to the egg yolks and mix until frothy. 

  4. Next, if you’re using a vanilla pod, use a knife to gently halve the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape out the seeds with the tip of the knife or a spoon. Add the vanilla seeds or extract to the egg yolk mixture and stir in the ground almonds and coconut flour.  

  5. Slowly stir the milk into the mixture, then carefully fold in the egg whites. 

  6. Heat your waffle iron and grease with the sunflower oil. When the waffle iron is ready, spoon 2 large tablespoons of batter into the waffle iron for each waffle. Cook until golden brown, then remove from the waffle iron. 

  7. If desired, lightly dust the waffles with cinnamon and serve with fresh fruit and honey.
