These Coconut-Flour Waffles Are Your Passport to a Gluten-Free Breakfast Paradise


Using coconut flour to make waffles is a great option for a gluten-free breakfast with a wonderfully tropical twist! You can finish this recipe off with crispy bacon, crunchy nuts, and a drizzle of maple syrup for the ultimate blend of sweet and savory. Don’t have a waffle iron? Use the batter for delicious pancakes instead! 


  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2 Tbsp. almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup, plus extra for topping
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
  • 4 bacon strips
  • 1/3 cup mixed nuts, chopped


  1. Preheat a waffle iron. Whisk eggs, water, almond milk, butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Add the coconut flour and baking powder and stir until smooth, then let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. For each waffle, pour a quarter of the coconut batter into the preheated iron. Close lid and cook for 2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked. Transfer to a heat-proof plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat to make 4 waffles in total.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan on high. Cook bacon for 2 minutes on each side, or until crisp. Place on a paper-towel-covered plate to soak up excess grease.
  4. Brush the hot waffles with extra maple  syrup and serve with bacon and nuts on top.
