How to make Fluffy Keto Pumpkin Spice Waffles
The recipe is simple and straightforward. As you know, I’m not a fan of long ingredient lists or complicated maneuvers, my recipes are always easy to follow, and they use minimum ingredients — without sacrificing the taste, texture, or healthiness.
So, for these scrumptious keto waffles, you’ll need coconut flour, psyllium husk powder (yes, the fine type), eggs, heavy cream, and pumpkin spice-flavored monk fruit drops. If you cannot access the latter, don’t despair: I’ll provide easier-to-obtain solutions at the end of the post.
First, you’ll whip the cream. I’ve simply used whipped cream in the recipe ingredients to make things more straightforward. You can estimate the amount of cream you need by dividing the amount of whipped cream by half, as the cream usually doubles the volume when whipped.
As this recipe calls for 1 cup (240 ml) of whipped cream, you’ll need 1/2 cup (120 ml) to create that 1 cup of whipped cream. Let that be your math exercise for today 🙂
As for further steps, you’ll beat the eggs until fluffy and pale, then add the combined dry ingredients and the sweetener, and finally, fold in the whipped cream. Ready to make delicious waffles!
Use your waffle iron’s manufacturer’s instructions to make waffles. One word still, though: use a generous amount of butter for frying, and be sure to grease the upper part of the waffle iron as well. You’ll see in the progress photos that I use a silicone brush as it’s super easy to clean.
That’s it; let’s take a closer look at how to prepare these wonder waffles:
Take 4 organic free-range eggs.
…until fluffy and pale. Set aside for a while.
Take a small bowl and combine 1/3 cup (80 ml) of coconut flour…
…and 1 teaspoon psyllium husk powder.
Mix until well combined.
Add the flour mixture to the fluffy eggs.
Add also 20 drops (or to taste) of pumpkin spice-flavored monk fruit drops.
Mix quickly until well combined. Don’t mix too long, or the batter reduces its fluffiness.
Finally, fold in 1 cup (240 ml) of whipped cream.
Stir gently until well combined.
Heat your waffle iron until hot. I use the medium setting.
Grease the waffle iron generously with butter. I use organic salted butter.
Make sure to spread the butter evenly.
Bake waffles according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Smells already great!
Remove the ready waffle from the iron and continue with the rest of the batter. Be sure to grease the waffle iron each time before pouring batter on it.
What a nice stack of waffles!
I really like the pumpkin spice-flavored monk fruit drops!
How I came up with this easy keto waffle recipe
I have been in a waffle mood this fall. When creating the Keto Spinach Waffle recipe, I was thinking about making waffles with pumpkin or pumpkin pie spice. I totally love the taste of pumpkin pie spice, so I decided to make keto waffles using my all-time favorite spice.
When pondering the ingredients, I thought about which flour to use. I have a fluffy pancake recipe with lupin flour, and my spinach waffle recipe uses coconut flour. I’m in favor of coconut flour as lupin is more allergenic than coconut flour, so I chose coconut flour for my Fluffy Keto Pumpkin Spice Waffles.
In addition, I wanted to add some psyllium husk powder to make the waffles hold better together. They are relatively large anyway, so they need an additional ingredient for binding. Psyllium husk powder was just the perfect ingredient for that.
As I wanted my waffles fluffy, I needed to beat as many ingredients as possible until fluffy. I chose eggs and cream as the wet ingredients, so I had to beat them. At first, I was planning to separate the eggs and beat the yolks and whites separately, but then I thought it’s just an extra step and doesn’t increase the fluffiness notably. So, I decided to beat the whole eggs until fluffy and pale, and fold in whipped cream as the last step.
Now, I still needed sweetener and the pumpkin pie spice. I noticed that if I used pumpkin spice-flavored monk fruit drops, I hit those two birds with one stone and got both the sweetener and the pumpkin pie spice in one ingredient.
After calculating the amounts, I was ready to conduct my first experiment. I didn’t have any clue if it would work, so if my waffles would hold well enough together, if the texture stayed fluffy during baking, or if the waffles tasted good at all.
After removing the first waffle from my iron, I was relieved that it looked gorgeous and had fluffy looks. After tasting the waffle, I was totally sold: the flavor was delicate and pleasant, with a hint of sweetness and a touch of pumpkin spice flavor. The waffles held well together — yet they were delicate and with a perfect melt-in-the-mouth texture. So heavenly delicious!
Here’s the recipe for you to enjoy:
- 4 organic free-range eggs
- 1/3 cup = 80 ml coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon psyllium husk powder
- 20 drops (or to taste) pumpkin spice-flavored monk fruit drops
- 1 cup = 240 ml whipped cream
- (an ample amount of butter for frying)
- Beat the eggs until fluffy and pale. Set aside.
- Combine the coconut flour and the psyllium husk powder in a small cup. Mix well.
- Add the flour mixture to the beaten eggs.
- Add also the sweetener.
- Mix quickly until well combined. Don't mix very long; otherwise, the batter decreases fluffiness.
- Fold in the whipped cream.
- Heat the waffle iron. Grease the iron generously with butter and make waffles according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Tips for variations
Coconut flour and psyllium husk powder are easily available almost worldwide, but pumpkin spice-flavored monk fruit drops might be more difficult to obtain. I’ve ordered mine from iHerb. They deliver to most countries in the world.
However, if you cannot get that sweetener, you can use another sweetener to taste (like stevia, erythritol, or allulose) and add 1 teaspoon of The Ultimate Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice.
I strongly recommend coconut flour for this recipe, but you can replace it with 1 cup (240 ml) of super-fine almond flour.
Unfortunately, there is no very good dairy-free option to replace whipped cream. You can try whipped coconut cream (that whippable type) to get fluffiness to your waffles. You can also beat the egg yolks and whites separately to increase fluffiness.

This week was yet another super busy week. I was working on Ketokamu tasks and making plans to convince the Finnish Food Authority cancel their decision to ban keto in Finland and eventually in the whole Europe. We are going to make a press release next week about that.
Other than that, I was naturally cooking and baking a lot. My new neighbor threw a housewarming party, and I baked some sweet and savory goodies. These mini donuts have our Ketokamu nut and chocolate spread Ketolla, and those sprinkles are crushed freeze-dried strawberries:
These savory bites are very cheesy: the dough has cheese and the topping is simply cream cheese with chopped chives and onion powder (my favorite seasoning for savory dishes after salt!):
