Paleo Waffles - from our Paleo Recipes Breakfast Collection

These Paleo Waffles are a proper weekend breakfast treat. Light, delicious and perfect for those following any kind of  gluten free diet. Your family will love you for them!

My son always pestered for packets of waffles when we went to the supermarket. Long after converting to a wheat free diet he would look longingly at them and plead with his eyes to be allowed to buy some, even though he knew all too well the pain that would follow if he ate them.

I'm a firm believer in trying to find safer alternatives to much loved foods (read more about that in our free family guide) where possible, and I do like to try and make dreams come true if I can. This recipe did all of that, I'm happy to say!

Paleo Waffles - Nutritional Info

Eggs and coconut flour are the main providers of good stuff in this recipe. 

Eggs provide riboflavin, B12, selenium, phosphorus and of course plenty of protein.

Coconut flour is high in fibre and low in carbohydrates, which will help to off set, to a degree, the honey used in the recipe.

As ever, this is a treat food, not an every day one.

The photo shows the cross section of two waffles, the top one was made using coconut sugar, the bottom one used honey. Both taste good, though our family prefers the honey version as it is lighter and fluffier, as you can see from the textures of the two. It's your choice, play around and see which you prefer.

You will need a waffle maker to create this recipe, but you can pick them up reasonably cheaply.

We liked the round ones, because they created 4 smaller waffles, but square and rectangular options are available too.

Paleo Waffle Ingredients - makes 12 small waffles

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup honey or coconut sugar according to preference for texture
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Sift the flour into a large bowl.
  2. Add the bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar and mix well.
  3. Add the eggs, honey (or coconut sugar), coconut milk and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients.
  4. Whisk well until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Heat the waffle maker to the required temperature (we used a medium heat).
  6. Spoon in approximately 4.5 dessert spoons of mixture - be careful not to overfill the waffle maker otherwise you will end up with a big mess to clean up!
  7. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Carefully remove the cooked waffles and place on a cooling rack until ready to serve so that the condensation doesn't result in a soggy bottom.

These waffles are perfectly sweet on their own, but you might want to serve them with a splash of honey or maple syrup, or just some lovely fresh fruit.
