There’s no better way to start any day than with some waffles. You can add a huge variety of toppings from fresh fruit to coconut cream or even more savory options, such as eggs and avocados.
Best of all, waffles can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter your dietary restrictions.
If you follow a paleo diet, then you may have thought your waffle-eating days were numbered. But, rejoice, as there are many paleo-friendly waffle recipes to please your cravings.
For those who may not know, a paleo diet is based on the concept of eating the same foods that our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have consumed during the Paleolithic era.
This includes unprocessed foods, including eggs, fish, fruits, vegetables, meat, seeds, and nuts, whereas dairy, grains, refined sugar, and processed foods are avoided.
We know what you’re thinking, “our Paleolithic ancestors didn’t eat waffles, though!” Okay, that’s true, but it is possible to make waffles from paleo-friendly ingredients and follow the principles of the paleo diet.
For instance, paleo waffles are made with grain-free flours, such as coconut flour, almond flour, or cassava flour, and are sweetened with natural sweeteners like maple syrup or honey.
Most importantly, paleo waffles are a fantastic alternative to traditional waffles for those who follow a paleo lifestyle or have dietary restrictions due to food allergies or intolerances.
Read on as we guide you through 10 of the most delicious and nutritious paleo waffles so you can enjoy them and stick to your dietary goals.
Super Tasty Paleo Waffles Recipes
1. Almond Flour Waffles
We start with this incredible almond flour waffle recipe. Ready in only 30 minutes or so, these paleo waffles are wonderfully crispy on their outsides but fluffy and soft in their centers. And, even though they are paleo-friendly, they taste just as good as traditional waffles.
If you make too many, you can freeze these waffles to use again. This is a great way of enjoying them throughout the week as tasty treats.
Their vanilla flavor is super sumptuous and the smell they give off as they bake is divine. Try them yourself and you’ll see why they are so special!
2. Classic Paleo Waffles

Again these are freezable so go wild and make a large batch! They are dairy free, gluten free, and void of any refined sugar. Oh, and the recipe is simple to follow.
We decided to toast these waffles in a toaster and they were majestic. You can also toast them in a toaster oven, or bake them in a regular oven if you wish to make them ahead of time.
If you like, you can make these waffles without separating the egg yolks and whites to achieve a thicker texture (but the difference is minimal). However you make these waffles, they will end up as your new favorite treat.

With a steamy soft inside and a crispy, crunchy outside, these Belgian waffles are some of the best we have ever tried.
Coconut flour is used instead of all-purpose flour giving these waffles a light, crispy texture and a few cashews are blended into the batter to give them a thicker feel.
Cashew nuts also provide the waffles with healthy fat, protein, and fiber to supercharge the start of your day.
