Type 1 Kid’s Breakfast Staple: Best Low Carb Waffles!

As I get this blog and site up and running, I can’t help but focus a lot on Breakfast, and these really are the best low carb waffles for kids!  Well, for anyone, but my Type 1 is PARTICULAR about a few things – pancakes and waffles! 

So, I have worked REALLLLLY hard at perfecting those.  

And, if it seems like my posts are heavy with breakfast items, it’s because in the beginning of our journey with Type 1 (and my journey being a Mom of a Type 1) that was the hardest thing to adjust for us!  

What about you?

If you’ve read my Best Tasting Low Carb Pancakes That Won’t Skyrocket Blood Sugar post, you know how much time I’ve spent perfecting the perfect pancake. Let’s just say the same amount of time has been invested in the Ultimate Low Carb Waffle.  

Ultimately, my son has the say in the winners, and like my pancakes, this one gets a double thumbs up.  

I have in the works; a post coming about sugar substitutes.  I have been experimenting and watching blood glucose levels with substitutes.  Yes, they are lower in carbs, and if you Keto, this is great for you… but I do find most contain sugar alcohol’s and that has a tendency to drastically raise blood glucose for us.  

And so, I’ve created these waffles with no sugar of any kind!  I think the key is the Sugar Free Pudding!!  

If you haven’t been introduced to the uses of Sugar Free Pudding and how great they are for Type 1 Diabetic kids/recipes… get ready to try and love this recipe!  


What I love about these low carb waffles:

One tip before we get on to the recipe.  Let the waffle cool slightly before diggin’ right in.  Cooling it slightly helps it set and allows it to get fluffier!

  • Dash Mini Waffle Maker


  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp. Sugar-Free Instant Pudding Vanilla or White Chocolate
  • 1/8 tsp salt a pinch
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Cake Batter Extract
  • 3/4 cup Fairlife 2% Milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter melted


  • Combine dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Combine wet ingredients (except melted butter) into a bowl or large measuring cup and whisk to combine.
  • Combine wet ingredients into dry, and whisk thoroughly.
  • Once combined, whisk in the melted butter and let rest for a few minutes. DO NOT stir again!
  • Plug in Dash Mini Waffle Maker, while batter rests. When the light goes off, the waffle maker is ready to use.
  • Use 1/4 measuring cup to scoop the batter, just shy of filling it, and pour it onto the center of the griddle. The batter will be thin and that is ok. Be careful not to fill the waffle maker or as it cooks the batter will spill out the sides.
  • Close the lid. The light will come on. When the light goes off, approximately a minute later, the waffle is done! For the best taste and texture, let the waffle cool slightly before enjoying!
