Ever since I made my Crispy AIP Waffles I’ve been in love with my mini-dash and playing around with all sorts of paleo waffles. These delicious, crisp edge, but soft on the inside nut free paleo waffles are my son’s new favorite breakfast. In his words he “smashes” them every time I make them. The perfect grain free, dairy free waffle, now made allergen friendly because we use cassava and green banana flour!

Brunch, but Make it Paleo
Nothing pulls together an awesome brunch spread like some delicious waffles! Mother’s day is coming up and this recipe is easy enough that the kiddos can prepare it. I like to serve these with scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and lots of berries. You can top with my Sugar-Free Blueberry Compote and use my famous Dairy-Free Coffee Creamer too! The perfect spread for any weekend!
Paleo Waffles Ingreidents
- Green banana flour is really delicious and very affordable. An awesome grain-free option that’s rich in prebiotic starch.
- Cassava flour is made from yuca root. It’s a starchy flour that behaves a lot like regular flour in baking and adds some stretch.
- Baking powder helps with rising, you can use store-bought grain-free baking powder or make your own, I have an easy recipe for AIP Baking Powder.
- Milk of choice! You can use any you like and if you’re nut and coconut-free, I recommend Tiger Nut Milk.
- Coconut sugar to sweeten them a little!
Step by Step Instructions
To make these nut free paleo waffles you want to start by whisking together the dry ingredients: flours, baking powder, coconut sugar and a pinch of salt. Then add in the egg, oil and milk. Whisk until smooth.
Pour about 3 tablespoons of batter on a hot and lightly greased waffle iron, close and cook for 4 minutes. This timing is using a mini dash. If you have another waffle iron you will just follow manufacturer instructions. Once they are golden brown and crisp, remove them from the iron. Serve hot!
Tips and Tricks
- I always recommend starting with a room-temperature egg.
- Make sure to preheat your waffle iron, I like to do this before I begin mixing my ingredients.
- When you measure flour the best way to do it is to spoon the flour into the measuring cup. Tap the cup down on the counter to make sure it’s full, then use the flat side of a knife to level the top.
- Be patient, it’s better to overcook your waffle a bit than undercook it!
Frequently Asked Questions
I have no tried this recipe with another flour, but from what I know of grain free flour, sweet potato flour might work well too.
This one is harder to replace, I don’t recommend it. I have cassava free waffles, check out my Crispy AIP Waffles.
I think a gelatin egg could work, but I have yet to test it. To make a gelatin egg bloom 1 tablespoon of gelatin in 1 tablespoon of water. Then vigorously mix in 2 tablespoons of boiling water until it looks like raw egg whites. Quickly mix it into the recipe, do this last.
Yes, any granulated sweetener will work.
A mini-dash! I love it because it makes perfect “eggo” looking waffles!
