Grain Free – Paleo Waffles with Coconut Flour (GF, DF, AIP)

Grain Free – Paleo Waffles with Coconut Flour (GF, DF, AIP)

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 and tigernut flour.

Tigernut flour has a nutty taste that, 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!

    Hi, as I’m allergic to bananas, is there something I can use in it’s place in this recipe. I know you may not have tried anything else, but it would be great to know what to substitute for banana. Thank you so much for all you do and for your free e-book,

      Hi Louise, and thanks so much for your message! Banana is commonly used as a binder and I doubt that by blending any other fruit alone you would get the same results. I think you could try to either use the same amount of canned pumpkin or 1/2 the amount of applesauce mixed with a scoop of powdered collagen to thicken it. This is if you want to keep the recipe AIP, otherwise, you can go ahead and add one whole egg!
      Hope this helped and I can’t wait to see your waffles!!
