These Coconut Flour Waffles are a wonderful weekend treat that are whipped up in 15 minutes flat. They’re made with coconut flour, so they’re gluten-free and low-carb, and you’ll never miss the wheat flour.
🧇 Why This Recipe Works
Great for Grain Free and Gluten Free Friends – Recipes can still taste out of this world with simple substitutions.
Freezer Friendly – Eat fresh or meal prep by flash freezing each one and then wrapping them before putting into a freezer safe Ziploc bag.
Variety – Top with any and all your favorite toppings to please everyone in your house.
Simple – It is very simple to make these waffles for a weekend breakfast at home.
Nut free – Great breakfast recipe option for those looking to avoid nuts.
These drool-worthy waffles are surprisingly simple to make. They taste fantastic, have easy directions, and only require a handful of ingredients. It’s a breakfast win for sure!
Eggs – You will need four eggs for the batter. It’s best to beat the eggs before adding the other ingredients. That way they can incorporate fully and you don’t end up with an egg that’s not mixed in. Plus, you get some added protein, vitamin D, and calcium from the eggs.
Coconut Flour – If you eat grain-free or gluten-free, you already know that using this is a great option. It produces soft and fluffy waffles that make you yearn for the next bite.
Sugar – To give the coconut waffles a sweet flavor, we use granulated white sugar. Swap it with another sweetener of your choice.
Besides the amazing flavor of these waffles, my favorite part is that you only need eight ingredients! They are that simple to make, and you should top them with all sorts of yummy things.
Step One: Beat the eggs in a large bowl until they are well mixed and become yellow in color. Pour in the milk and oil and whisk again.
Step Two: Add the coconut flour on top, then sprinkle the baking powder, salt, sugar, and cornstarch. Whisk everything together. Once it’s blended, allow it to rest for five minutes.
Step Three: Make sure your waffle maker is on and hot. Add the waffle batter to the center and cook until they are done. Continue making waffles until the batter is all gone, then serve while hot!
🧊 Freezer Friendly Instructions
One thing that I love about making waffles is that they are so easy to meal prep and keep in the freezer! Often, I will make a double or even triple batch, so we have them ready for those mornings when we don’t feel like cooking.
They are great for school days or even in the summer when the kids need to feed themselves.
For a special treat, it is also extremely fun for Breakfast-for-Dinner!
To freeze the waffles | Lay them out on a large baking sheet so that they aren’t touching each other. Place it in the freezer for two hours or until they are frozen relatively solid.
Once frozen, take the waffles and place them into a large freezer-safe bag. Use as many bags as you need. It’s important not to skip the flash-freezing because otherwise, they will stick together and will be virtually impossible to separate for reheating.
To reheat the waffles | Microwave them for 30 – 60 seconds or until they are hot. They warm up pretty quickly but will become hard if you overheat them.
Another option is to warm the waffles in the oven. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. and place them on a baking sheet.
Warm them for 10-15 minutes or until they are hot. This will allow them to be slightly crispy on the exterior and fluffy on the inside.
If you are a visual person, check out how we made freezer pancakes. The concept is exactly the same!
If you want to make this recipe a little healthier, substitute a sugar-free sweetener instead. This will allow these easy waffles to fit into a keto or paleo diet, depending on your needs.
There are so many delicious ingredients you can add to these to give them even more flavor. Try some of these ideas and see what you like:
- Cinnamon – Add a little spice to your life by adding ¼ – ½ teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter. It’s so yummy!
- Pure Vanilla Extract – Put a splash of vanilla extract in the batter. It gives the waffles an irresistible flavor.
- Almond Extract – If you love the way almond extract tastes, you should add some to the batter too! It’s one of the best flavors when it comes to baked goods.
- Blueberries – Mix ¼ – ½ cup of fresh or frozen blueberries to the batter. They add some gorgeous color and taste great!
- Chocolate Chips – A little bit of chocolate takes these amazing waffles to the next level of awesome! Who doesn’t like chocolate chips for breakfast?
🍓 Topping Ideas
You can never add too many toppings to these waffles! They add color and make them taste even better. Dig in and munch on some of these ideas:
- Whipped Cream – If you’ve never tried adding some whipped cream, now is the time! It’s beyond scrumptious.
- Berries – Any berries would be lovely. Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are all great.
- Sugar – Either some powdered sugar or a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar on top. Yum!
- Peanut Butter – Add a dollop of peanut butter to the center and devour. It’s a great way to add some protein.
- Flavored Syrup – Strawberry, blueberry, maple, raspberry, or any other kind of syrup you love will be great.
- Cream Cheese – Sweeten some cream cheese and add it to the waffles for a creamy surprise. Sprinkle a few nuts and enjoy it!

These are just a few ideas, but you can seriously add anything you want on top. Leave us a comment if you try something on top and love it!
👩🍳 Recipe FAQs
The texture you get from coconut flour waffles is more consistent with a traditional waffle. Almond flour can offer a bit more of a nutty flavor. Some like to use a blend of almond flour and coconut flour.
If you don’t eat all your waffles, go right ahead and allow them to cool. Then you can store in the fridge for 3-4 days. Or toss in the freezer for up to three months.
I don’t see why you would run into any issues using an almond milk or other milk alternative. Even a lactose free milk should work just as well.
To keep your waffles crispy, lay them flat on a baking sheet. Place the cooked waffles in the oven at 200 degrees. Then let them sit in there as you cook more. This will help to keep the waffles crispy. If you stack waffles you will find the heat begins to sog up your waffles.
