These Coconut Flour Waffles are a wonderful weekend treat. They’re really fluffy, with a little crunch around the edges, and when you get them buttered, and add some syrup, they just melt in your mouth! They’re made with coconut flour, so they’re gluten-free and low-carb, and you’ll never miss the wheat flour. You’ll want to make sure to keep this recipe in your favorites file because this is sure to be your go-to recipe.
These drool-worthy coconut flour 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 of the coconut waffles. It’s best to beat them 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 coconut flour is a great option. It produces soft, but fluffy waffles that make you yearn for the next bite.
Sugar – To give the coconut waffles a sweet flavor, we use granulated white sugar. You can swap it with another sweetener of your choice, but it may change the overall taste. This is normal and to be expected, so you may need to adjust how much you put in.
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.
First Step: 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.
Second Step: Add the coconut flour on top, then sprinkle the baking powder, salt, sugar, and cornstarch, then whisk everything together. Once it’s blended, allow it to rest for five minutes.
Third Step: Make sure your waffle maker is on and hot. Add coconut flour waffle batter to the center of the waffle maker 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 a Breakfast-for-Dinner!
To freeze the waffles, lay them out on a large baking sheet so that they aren’t touching each other. Place the pan 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 the coconut flour waffles 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 want to make this coconut flour waffle recipe a little healthier, substitute the sugar for a sugar-free sweetener instead. This will allow these easy waffles to fit into a keto or paleo diet, depending on your needs.

- 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?
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:
