Almond Flour Waffles

Crispy Almond Flour Waffles recipe that will exceed your expectations. Delicious gluten free waffles and yet with super simple ingredients. See for yourself!

We do not follow a gluten free diet but I’m watching our gluten consumption. Considering my men are eating sprouted whole grain bread regularly, I decided to make almond flour waffles and clean up my pantry at same time.

A combination of applesauce, oats and almond meal give the waffles a nutty taste and delicate texture. Usually you need to add oil to the batter to prevent waffles from sticking but I found spraying the griddles with cooking spray each time did the job. Since I already added so much applesauce I didn’t add any oil.

These gluten free waffles with almond flour  are crunchy if you cook them a minute or two past the “ready” indicator time, especially fresh. Almost starting to burn look – I love it. Later on they absorb moisture and become softer but still super delicious.

How to Make Almond Flour Waffles

  1. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat egg (s). Add flaxseed (if using), applesauce, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, baking soda and salt; whisk until well combined.

To make and freeze a large batch of waffles takes care of breakfast meal prep (hi, healthy waffle recipe for kids and hello, protein waffles for grown ups). It is so convenient to pull out a waffle from a freezer, place it in a toaster and voila.

  1. I was sceptical about almond flour waffles but not anymore. My kids love them! Thank you so much!

  2. I came across these and they looked perfect for the “clean” eating I’m starting. I just made a batch, but for some reason they don’t stay together? The pull apart and half is on each side of the maker. Do I need to add more of something to help keep them together? I’m kinda bummed cuz I planned on freezing some.

    1. Hi Jesse. Let them cook longer. Sounds like you are opening your waffle maker too soon before waffles get a chance to cook through. I made these a thousand times, literally. Should work.:)

  3. This recipe looks great! Do you think it would work if I subbed pumpkin puree for the applesauce? I’ve been craving pumpkin lately! If not maybe I’ll make them according to the recipe and top with pumpkin.

  4. This may seem silly but are oats gluten free? Want to make these for a gluten free brunch I’m planning after my whole30 I’m having but not sure if oats are? Also I’m not sure if you have heard of the whole30 but I really feel like you’re recipes would be a good way to keep eating clean after the whole30. What do you think? Really love your recipes BTW. Found my way here through FB thanks! Love your recipes they remind of stuff that I like to eat but shouldn’t! Can’t wait to make that zoodle lasagna!

    1. Hi Melissa. Oats themselves are gluten free but often they are processed in facilities and on equipment where wheat products are processed too. Thus, if someone has true gluten intolerance or has Celiac you have to buy certified gluten free oats. They exist. Bob’s Red Mill has one. I know many fitness enthusiasts eat gluten free and paleo right now because it is a fad. Just like low fat and sugar free was for years.
      I have heard of Whole 30 and I know it is a diet. I honestly do not do diets because they do not work and are unrealistic to sustain on a long-term basis for a busy family of 4 with careers and kids. It is a temporary fix. I tried many diets. Moderation of whole foods and treats is the key for me. Majority of my recipes are made with whole foods so for me it is the ultimate choice. Plus real life with 2 kids in a mix and I do my best to eat most whole foods but sometimes I don’t, and do my best, and don’t kill myself over it for days. Not sure what is worse health wise – not eating whole foods or stressing about not eating whole foods.
      Glad you are enjoying my recipes.:)

  5. So looking at these waffles made me go on amazon and order a waffle maker 🙂 I’ve been buying a lot of Nature Path $5+ boxes of waffles lately, because this is something that my son loves in the mornings and is easy. I bought a few bags of raw organic nuts there as well. Looking forward to trying these soon!

    1. Haha, they look cute, right?! I usually make a double or triple batch of batter and just mass produce waffles while cooking something else. I feel like a conveyor that day.:) My boys love waffles too. That $5 box is enough for one breakfast for them. Let me know how Sebastian likes these. I also have this recipe which I love but all my boys prefer these gluten free ones. I buy those nuts too, whenever I can. Pricey a bit but so much healthier.

  6. These were really good, thank you! I used Coconut milk and sprinkled a handful of coconut sugar in to “smooth out” the almond meal flavor. Kids gobbled them up AND I have extra for another breakfast this week. Perfect!

  7. Waffles are my families favorite. We don’t eat them much because the traditional box kind is anything but clean. Anything. Even when I throw in a few nuts. But since I’m a recovering Waffle House addict (I’m getting the help that I need) I think I will throw a few pecans in here for good measure. Love the applesauce idea.

    1. I recently started making waffles and love how I can add so much goodness into them without my kids’ knowledge. They will eat any waffles! Yesterday I made new whole wheat waffles for the week and they were gone during the day. Today I’m making a triple batch to freeze. Never been to Waffle House and only once to iHop.
