Sometimes you need to jazz your breakfast up with a bit of color. After all, we eat with our eyes first. So why not spice your breakfast up with these rainbow waffles? These Rainbow Waffles are a stunning masterpiece but easy to make. The waffles are Belgian-style waffles made with ingredients like eggs, coconut oil, almond flour, coconut flour, and vanilla extract. First, we whipped the egg whites and folded them into the waffle batter to make them extra light and fluffy. Next, we added food coloring to the waffle batter to make six colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Once you put these delicious rainbow waffles on your breakfast table, your friends and family will think: "Wow! What a beautiful rainbow!" They will be so enamored by the beautiful colors that they will forget that it's a waffle they can eat. Serve with our Keto Air Fryer Turkey Bacon.

What does a rainbow waffle taste like?

  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour 

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour 


  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

  • 4 tablespoons Sugar-Free Sweetener 

  • 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan Gum

  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

  • 2 large Egg Yolks 

  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

  • 1 1/2 cups Coconut Milk

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted

  • 3 drops of Red Food Coloring 


  • 2 drops of Orange Food Coloring


  • 2 drops of Yellow Food Coloring


  • 2 drops of Green Food Coloring

  • 2 drops of Blue Food Coloring

  • 2 drops of Purple Food Coloring


Preheat your waffle maker. 


Preparing waffle maker

Place the egg whites into a stand mixer bowl and beat it with the whip attachment for 4-5 minutes until they reach stiff peaks. 


Beating egg whites

In a large bowl whisk the rice flour, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar-free sweetener, xanthan gum, and salt.

Mixing dry ingredients

Whisk the egg yolks, vanilla extract, coconut milk, and coconut oil into a bowl.

Mixing wet ingredients

Add the egg yolk mixture to the almond flour mixture until combined. 


Mixing wet ingredients to dry ingredients

Carefully fold the whipped egg whites into the rainbow waffle batter until combined. 


Adding the whipped egg whites

Divide the waffle batter between 6 small bowls. 


Prepare the batter into 6 bowls

Add the six food colorings to each bowl of waffle batter. Mix well until you have 6 bowls of rainbow waffle batter mix.

Prepare 6 bowls with the food coloring

Pour each bowl of rainbow waffle batter into 6 separate piping bags. 


Prepare 6 piping bags with the 6 colors

Spray your waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. 


Prepare waffle maker with the cooking spray

You are beginning with the red batter; pipe a circle around the perimeter of the waffle iron. Next, pipe a circle using the orange batter, followed by yellow, green, blue, and purple. Do not add too much batter to the waffle iron; it will spread as you pip it onto it.  



Pipe the rainbow batter into the waffle maker

Cook the rainbow waffle for 2-3 minutes. Do not let the waffle brown too much, or it will ruin the color. Remove the rainbow waffle, place it onto a plate and repeat step 11 until you have four rainbow waffles. 


Cooking the rainbow waffle

Garnish the rainbow waffles with your desired topping (psst whipped cream and sugar-free sprinkles are an excellent choice!).
