Paleo Waffles

Paleo Waffles

 I’ve tried a decent number of gluten and dairy free waffle and pancake recipes. Some of them were ok but I continued the search for the perfect substitute. When I came across this recipe I almost thought the ingredients were too crazy to be good. I am so glad that I actually tried it because even my husband agrees that these taste pretty close to original waffles. We are in love with this recipe and hope you love it too!

  1. 3 eggs
  2. 1 cup raw cashews
  3. 1/3 cup coconut milk
  4. 3 tablespoons real maple syrup
  5. 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  6. ΒΌ teaspoon salt
  7. ΒΎ teaspoons baking soda
  8. 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  1. Turn on waffle iron to lowest setting
  2. Mix the eggs, cashews, milk, syrup, and melted coconut oil in a blender.
  3. Blend until very smooth and creamy.
  4. Next add the salt, baking soda, and coconut flour, then blend again for about a minute until mixed well.
  5. Spray your iron and pour the batter into the waffle iron so it just covers the bottom portion of the iron. Be careful not to fill too full as they will spill over the sides.
  6. Cook the waffles for about a minute, depending on the heat of your waffle iron.
  7. If they release easily with a fork when you open the lid, they are probably done.
  8. Repeat and enjoy!
  1. These are the best eaten right away but they do pretty good reheated in the toaster the next day!

      You definitely have to try it! It seriously is so yummy and tastes just like regular waffles:) Let me know what you think!!

    Do you think this would work using peanuts instead? My sister has a decently severe nut allergy as well as gluten intolerance.

      Marguerite great question! I am not entirely sure they would work with peanuts. Peanuts have a more distinct flavor unlike the cashews which usually blend easily with other foods without really tasting them. I think if you used peanuts you would really be able to taste them in the waffles. Which may not be a bad thing. If your sister does not have allergies towards peanuts then I encourage you to try them and share your results πŸ™‚ Also keep in mind that peanuts are generally considered legumes and not really nuts so if you are trying to eat Paleo, peanuts are excluded from Paleo food options. Hope you find something that works for both you and your sister! I have seen many allergy friendly recipes floating around, especially on Pinterest. Good luck! πŸ™‚
