What if I told you that you could not only have waffles again, but that you could make them in about two minutes with just two ingredients and they’d be virtually carb free? I know what you’re thinking – get this crazy woman some carbohydrates – she’s lost her mind! No, no, no! I know it sounds crazy but please don’t knock it until you try it. Yep, low carb waffles that even my carbivore family loves!
I first stumbled across this delicious magical recipe for low carb waffles about 47 weeks ago, or so says my Instagram. I’ve been making these at least once a week ever since and this morning while I was enjoying every last bite I realized that I haven’t posted a low carb recipe in a while, and that I’ve been holding out on all of you by not sharing this simply amazing, easy low carb breakfast idea. Okay, not just breakfast – for me this is an anytime meal!

Did you just read that crazy caption? Nothing but eggs and mayo … mmhmm, these two ingredient waffles are literally whipped up eggs and mayonnaise. I know how that sounds, I really do. But, you’ve got to trust me on this one! Here’s the recipe –
Low Carb Waffles
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbs Mayonnaise
Whisk the ingredients together until smooth. Let rest for about three minutes while your waffle iron heats up or until you start to see it get a little bit bubbly. I like to spray my waffle iron with Coconut Oil but you can use butter or nothing at all if you’ve got a good nonstick waffle iron. When your waffle iron says they are done, they probably are! Smother in butter and your favorite sugar free syrup and enjoy.
I have the best waffle maker – it makes six waffles at a time. I usually use 3 eggs and 3 tbs of mayo to make the full six waffles and have some to save for later!
Want to take it to the next level? You can just eat these low carb waffles as well, waffles. Or, use them to make a breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg and cheese! And, speaking of cheese, why not take two of these waffles, put some cheese between them and fry in butter cause, you know – grilled freaking cheese! Yummo! Oh, and ps – waffles, berries, a little freshly whipped cream. Now you’ve got an easy low carb dessert on your hands!
These waffles wont get as crispy as regular waffles and I don’t love them reheated as waffles but if you use them for a sandwich later on they taste perfectly fine heated in a skillet. I’ve tried toasting them and while it works, you do lose a little something in that process – luckily, these are so quick and easy to whip up you don’t really need to worry a whole lot about making them ahead just to save time. They do have a slightly eggier flavor than your average regular carb laden waffle but I enjoy it – it’s almost a cross between waffles and french toast and for me, that’s a sure win! Give these low carb waffles a try and let me know how you make out!
