This is the best paleo waffles recipe. Crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside they have the best texture. Made with almond flour, tapioca flour and coconut flour they are grain free, gluten free and dairy free.
Why you will love this recipe:
- These paleo waffles have the perfect texture! Crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside, just like waffles should be!
- They are easy to make in one bowl and come together in just a few minutes!
- They freeze really well so make a double batch and save half for later. Meaning they are perfect for meal prep.
- They are so versatile! You can top them with almost anything: maple syrup, berries, bananas, chocolate chips… whatever you feel like!
- Not only are these waffles paleo but they are also dairy free and gluten free.
Key ingredients, substitutions and equipment:
- A waffle maker (this is the ceramic one that I use and love).
- Almond flour (this is the brand I use) – one of my favourite grain free flours for making waffles.
- Tapioca flour (this is the kind I have) – to help give these waffles that light and fluffy texture.
- Coconut flour (I use this kind) – this helps crisp up the outside of these waffles.
- Baking soda (this is the aluminum free brand I use) – to help these waffles rise when they cook.
- Sea salt – to help balance out the sweetness in this recipe.
- Coconut milk – I recommend using full fat coconut milk. You could also use another dairy free milk such as cashew milk or almond milk.
- Coconut oil (I use this brand) – this helps add moisture and crisp up the outside of these waffles.
- Eggs – to help give these waffles that perfect light and fluffy inner texture.
- Honey or maple syrup – to add some delicious natural sweetness.
How to make:
Step one: first, preheat your waffle maker.
Step two: now add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir well until smooth.
Step three: then spoon the batter into your waffle maker and cook each waffle until done (this will depend on the waffle maker you use but most have an indicator light that goes off when it’s cooked).
Step four: top these waffles with whatever you like and enjoy!
Tips and variations:
- I recommend using room temperature eggs to make these waffles. They turn out lighter and fluffier if you do.
- These waffles freeze really well so feel free to make a double batch and save some for later.
- DO NOT try swapping the flours in this recipe. They won’t turn out.
Topping ideas for these waffles:
- Maple syrup – a classic that you can’t go wrong with!
- Raw berries such as blueberries or raspberries
- Nut butter
- Chia seed jam like my Blueberry Chia Seed Jam or Plum Jam
- This delicious Double Berry Sauce!
- Coconut whipped cream

I made these waffles with coconut milk but you could easily use almond milk or cashew milk too.
Yes! These waffles freeze really well so make a large batch in advance and simply heat them when you are ready to eat them. They also keep well in the fridge for a few days too.
I have not tested this recipe with any flour substitutions so would not recommend trying them.
