Delicious and healthy waffles? Everyone is happy! I know your family will love these paleo crispy waffles as much as mine.
What Are Paleo Waffles?
Paleo waffles with almond flour are just like regular waffles, except they use almond flour and a dash of tapioca instead of white flour. They are grain free, dairy free, gluten free and made entirely of paleo ingredients!
You won’t find any flour or sugar in these waffles, but don’t worry, they still taste just like the waffles you know and love. I think it would even be hard to tell the difference between my gluten free waffles with almond flour and regular old white flour waffles!
How To Make Paleo Waffles
So this recipe for almond flour waffles comes together in just 10 minutes! Let me show you how to make them:
- Prep your waffle iron. Preheat your iron and lightly grease with coconut oil.
- Mix together dry ingredients. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add wet ingredients. Add the almond milk, eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Mix together until smooth.
- Cook almond flour waffles. Scoop batter into the lightly greased waffle iron. Close and cook until steam is coming out and waffles are crispy and cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.
- Serve! For the best almond flour waffles, I’d say a pat of coconut oil, grass-fed butter, and some syrup or honey are just perfect.

The pancakes were great. Super fluffy! I added blueberries. I did not need to beat the egg whites 4-5 minutes because I was using a Kitchenaid. Was that time for hand mixing perhaps?
Love these waffles!!! I put defrosted frozen blueberries on top. Absolutely delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
Thank you for sharing this recipe, waffles are terrible delicious.
Made beautiful looking waffles! We eat with our eyes first so that’s important to me.
I had to make some modifications to accommodate what I had on hand. But overall the best non-conventional waffles I’ve made. Still relatively light and springy. Nicely flexible but not rubbery.
