This Paleo waffle recipe is a fluffy and delicious cinnamon laced Belgian waffle recipe that is naturally dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and Paleo.

There is just something so satisfying about freshly made fluffy waffles. Bonus points if they are dairy-free, gluten-free, and Paleo. I love slathering these Paleo waffles with maple syrup and berries. It’s the perfect special breakfast.

If you love a good breakfast recipe, try my potato crust quiche lorraine, zucchini egg muffin cups, or dairy-free crepes.

Recipe ingredients

Recipe ingredients needed to make Paleo waffle recipe.
  • Tapioca flour– this is a great gluten-free flour that gives a good texture to recipes.
  • Almond flour– make sure to use blanched almond flour because it is more refined in texture.
  • Coconut flour– this combines with tapioca flour and almond flour to give a great texture to the waffles.
  • Baking soda– this helps the waffles rise.
  • Coconut sugar– this sugar has a lower glycemic index than other sugars.
  • Cinnamon– I like Ceylon cinnamon because it has great flavor.
  • Eggs– these are used to make the waffles fluffy.
  • Olive oil– you can use any kind of olive oil.
  • Almond milk– you can use any non-dairy milk of your choice.
  • Vanilla extract– this gives a good flavor to the waffles.

Expert tips

  • Follow the instructions on your waffle manual. Each waffle maker cooks differently so it is hard to give set instructions for the cooking portion of this recipe.
  • Don’t cook these on too hot a setting or they dry out. I use the Cuisinart Double Belgian Waffle Maker and found that using the middle setting for heat worked great. This waffle maker results in 5 circular Belgian waffles using this recipe.
  • Don’t skip the step to whip the egg whites into stiff peaks. This makes sure the waffles are fluffy.

Waffle toppings

  • almond butter
  • berries
  • maple syrup
  • whipped cream
  • honey
  • chocolate
  • sliced bananas

Instructions 

  • Preheat your waffle maker, and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. I like to use an olive oil spray. Set aside.
  • Add the tapioca flour, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, coconut sugar, salt, and cinnamon to a large bowl. Whisk together.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes, until stiff peaks form.
  • In yet another bowl, mix together the egg yolks, olive oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract together until the mixture thickens a bit.
  • Then, pour the egg yolk mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix with a fork. Let the mixture sit for a minute or two to thicken. Then, fold in the egg whites.
  • Pour the batter into your hot waffle iron and cook according to the instructions on your waffle maker manual.
  • I use the Cuisinart Double Belgian Waffle Maker and can make 5 round waffles using this recipe.
