  • your favorite waffle batter OR use my paleo waffle recipe below


Serve with low carb toppings of your choice:

  • Sugar free syrup, plus berries or grass-fed butter


  1. Make your favorite waffle batter according to instructions or follow instrutions below.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs or egg yolks** then whisk in the almond butter, sweetener, milk, apple cider (if using) and maple or vanilla extract.

    Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix until smooth and just combined - do NOT overmix.

    Allow the batter to thicken up 3-5 minutes while you preheat the waffle maker. This allows the baking powder to activate.


  1. Preheat the waffle maker and spray generously with pure coconut oil spray (or olive oil spray).

    Spoon in one or two 1 tablespoon-sized dollops in your waffle iron, making sure to leave enough space between them. Close the lid and cook until waffle light turns green (about 4-5 minutes depending on your waffle maker). Allow to sit for 15 seconds, then transfer the crispy waffles onto a plate.

    Repeat with remaining batter.

  2. Serve with your favorite toppings and sides: milk, melted butter, low carb syrup or fresh berries.
