I finally understand why people are so crazy about waffles.
Excuse me… I mean, WAFFLES! Wow. They’re incredible. Yes, I realize that I’m bragging about my own waffles BUT the fact is, until recently… I had never made waffles. I can’t believe how much I have been missing out. They’re ridiculously easy to make and my recipe calls for just three ingredients. These crispy waffles are perfection. They’re sweet, light and of course, crispy. Drizzle some maple syrup on top and you’ve got the perfect treat.
These waffles are special-diet friendly.
They’re egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and grain-free. My waffles are made with real food ingredients (no packaged mixes on this blog) and they’re also paleo and vegan. They’re made using my paleo naan batter, but the end result doesn’t taste like naan… it tastes like a waffle. This recipe is also sugar-free. Sure, you can add a sweetener to the batter if you want to but I think the almond flour and coconut milk add enough sweetness. In my opinion, the waffles don’t taste overly “coconutty” either.
You can enjoy these for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert! Eat them with fruit jam, maple syrup, honey, chocolate chips, fresh berries, butter or ghee. For something savory, top them with dippy eggs, bacon, or leftover meat. One of my readers told me that she made waffles using my paleo naan batter and scooped some of my empanada filling onto the waffles as they were cooking.

- Preheat waffle iron.
- Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour the batter into the waffle iron and use the appliance as directed. If you want to make the waffles really crispy, cook them for a longer time (I’ve cooked them as long as 10-15 minutes using my waffle iron).
- Serve immediately. If saving these waffles for later, allow them to cool on a rack so that they maintain their crispiness.
