Almond Flour Waffles

Every once in a while I search and search for a good recipe, find it, and then just stop looking. Maybe we aren't picky or maybe these are just really good waffles, but I haven't felt the need to try any other recipes after making these. The original recipe came from and the only thing I changed was to add a little nutmeg to the mixture and a little extra cinnamon. She also prepares the dry ingredients first and then adds the combined wet, but I didn't notice it made a difference. Best part {besides the taste}:: They seem to be fool-proof as well, meaning every time I make them they turn out perfectly! For what more can I ask?

Makes about 10 waffles, depending on your waffle iron size
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cook: 9 minutes each
Total Time: 60 minutes


  • 3 1/2 cups almond flour {we use this}
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons turbinado sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, plus an additional 1/2 cup to thin, as needed {or whatever kind of milk you like!}
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  1. Mix all ingredients together until thoroughly combined. 
  2. Preheat the waffle iron and spray with nonstick cooking spray or rub with coconut oil or butter to keep waffles from sticking. Once iron is hot, pour a 1/2 cup of the mixture into the center of  your iron and close the lid. You may have to play with the amount or batter for each waffle, depending on the size of your iron.  

  3. Allow to cook until the waffles are thoroughly cooked and slightly crunchy around the edges, or to your preference. Our waffles come out perfectly after 9 minutes. 
  4. After you put that first batch of batter in the iron {you have 9 minutes of waiting!}, throw all your dirty utensils in the sink or the dishwasher to make clean up a little easier when breakfast is over! could make this too:: 

Additional notes

This is technically a double batch and Ryan and I like to freeze the extra waffles for a day when we want a quick breakfast--enjoy!
