If you are looking to turn traditional waffles into a grain free paleo treat, this recipe made with coconut flour is for you!
I created this one on a hot Sunday morning in Laguna Beach, when I was setting up a quick home made brunch that was healthier that the waffles you get when you eat out in a restaurant.
I feel like making your own food is always the best option to maintain your healthy eating habit, so most of the time I prefer to eat at home and only grab a drink when I am out.
These paleo waffles are a winner: they are free from grains, dairy and eggs and they have a delicious flavor given by the naturally sweet flavor of the coconut flour and the tigernut protein mix (*paleo but not AIP).
You can find the tigernut protein mix I used at this link, but regular tigernut flour will work great as well for this paleo waffle recipe. Its nutty taste, combined with the delicious hint of coconut flour, allows you to keep the amount of maple syrup on the low end.
The Waffle Machine I used is this one, it’s non stick and it works perfectly without brushing the plates with any extra oil!!
Here’s your recipe. It’s quick, easy and a great relief for those that are trying to eat grain free and don’t want to give up a nice waffle brunch!
Grain Free – Paleo Waffles with Coconut Flour
- For the Grain Free Waffles
- 30 gr Cassava Flour
- 15 gr Arrowroot Flour
- 15 gr Coconut Flour
- 20 gr Tigernut Protein Mix (*replace with regular Tigernut Flour if on the AIP)
- 100 gr Banana (1 small banana)
- 90 gr Coconut Milk
- 1 1/2 tbsb freshly squeezed Orange Juice
- 25 gr Maple Syrup
- 3 gr (1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda)
- 20 gr Apple Cider Vinegar
For the Toppings
- 1/2 Papaya
- 2 dried Figs
- 2 tbsp shredded Coconut Flakes
- 10 gr shaved 100% Dark Chocolate* (avoid if on the AIP)
- Turn on your Waffle machine.
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Combine banana, coconut milk, orange juice and water in a blender and process until you get a smooth liquid.
- Pour the liquid over the flour mix, add in the maple syrup and mix well.
- Lastly, add in the baking soda and the apple cider vinegar and mix well. You’ll get a pretty thick batter, spread half of it on the waffle machine with a spoon.
- When you first grain free waffle is ready, cook the second one with the remaining batter.
- Top each waffle with some diced papaya, dried figs, shredded coconut and shaved dark *chocolate (*avoid if on the AIP) and enjoy!!
So, how do you like them? I feel like the rich, buttery taste of the papaya makes for a perfect topping for these paleo waffles! And can you taste the sweet touch of coconut flour?!? I love it!
