Say hello to your new Brunching best friend.

These Perfect Crispy-on-the-Outside Paleo Berry Waffles are soft, fluffy, and lightly sweetened on the inside AND, as the name insinuates, crispy on the outside.

This recipe has ended my quest to finding truly crispy grain-free, gluten-free, Paleo waffles.  If you have been on a similar quest, I hope these waffles end your quest too!

I actually never intended to make this recipe, which is my favorite type of recipe!

I was recently visiting my parents and wanted to make my Paleo + Gluten-Free Mashed Blueberry Waffles because I am obsessed with them and I knew they would love those healthy waffles over the weekend.

But we didn’t have all of the ingredients needed.

And then my mother and I divided up the recipe— she took care of the wet ingredients, while I mixed up the dry ingredients.

She used a handheld mixer and really beat the mixture until it got all bubbly.

(In my other recipe I mixed everything up in a food processor, but the texture was not bubbly)

So, we basically just kind of winged it, using my other recipe as inspiration.

I used a mixture of almond flour, coconut flour, and tapioca flour here.

This resulted in a batter with a super light yet thick texture. This was so different from my other recipe, that I was not sure what the result would be.

I kind of was expecting the worst, but the result was the best!

Seriously, these Perfect Crispy-on-the-Outside Paleo Berry Waffles are perfection.

I was so happy with how great a texture and taste these had, without even trying!

My family really loved them and kept saying they were surprised at how delicious they were with my using such “alternative” ingredients haha… aka Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free ingredients.

Also, I finally found a good waffle maker.

And by found, I mean, I used my mother’s waffle maker and realized how big a difference a really good waffle maker can be with cooking waffles.

It’s called the Villaware Belgian Waffler and I just love it.

It’s expensive, but my parents have had it for years and years, and their waffles always come out so great and even.

Update: I bought this Cuisinart WAF-F20 Double Belgian Waffle Maker and LOVE it. You can make two waffles at once and it cooks them so well!

I spent $50 on a waffle maker a while back and hated it. You have to pour the batter into a hole in the top, and this results in batter sometimes coming out the top.

It was messy and not as reliable or easy to use. I’ve actually had many MEH waffle makers… my favorites are the Villaware or Cuisinart WAF-F20.

Note: this recipe makes 5 square waffles (that are 5 inches long per side) , OR 3 large circular Belgian Waffles, which I think would feed about 3-5 people, depending how hungry everyone is and if there are any other sides paired along with the waffles.

This recipe can easily be doubled to make larger waffles or a larger amount of waffles.

I actually doubled the recipe the other day and it was great to have extras to snack on all day, and to freeze. 🙂

  • Put the blueberries, strawberries, eggs, olive oil, unsweetened almond milk,  and maple syrup into a bowl and mix with handheld mixer until well mixed and bubbly in texture--- about 1.5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon, and coconut sugar together with a fork.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and mix with a fork. Let the batter sit and thicken for a few minutes.
