Look no further—The Best Classic Paleo Waffles are here!
Recipe type: Breakfast/Brunch
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 waffles
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk (can sub another dairy-free milk of choice)
  • 2 large, organic eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons organic unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil, melted and cooled (28g)
  • 1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (can sub raw honey)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar (can sub freshly squeezed lemon juice)
  1. Start by spraying your waffle iron with non-stick spray or coating it with oil if needed. Then, preheat it.
  2. Next, add all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk them together.
  3. Thereafter, add all the wet ingredients, excluding the egg whites (put these in a separate medium bowl), in a medium bowl and whisk them together.
  4. Next, beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff white peaks form and set aside.
  5. Then, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until fully incorporated.
  6. Furthermore, add the whipped egg whites to the batter and gently fold, not stir, them in. This ensures our waffles are extra light and crispy!
  7. Pour some batter on your pre-heated waffle iron (each waffle iron is different, so check how much your iron specifies) and close the top.
  8. A green light or some indicator should let you know when it’s ready. Proceed until all the batter is used up!
  9. Serve warm and enjoy! :)
These freeze great! Just separate them with a sheet of foil or parchment paper and seal in an airtight freezer bag.
To reheat, bake in the oven on 350°F for about 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
If you plan on making a lot of waffles, I recommend:
Set a cooling rack on a baking sheet and turn the oven to 200°F.
Once the waffles are done, set them on the cooling rack and keep them in the oven to prevent them from cooling of becoming not so crispy while the other ones are cooking. ;)
