Before we start talking too much about how incredible these paleo almond flour WAFFLES are – I just wanted to say hello friends! My name is Shannon and I’m the girl behind @fitstrongshann on Instagram! I’m sure it’s quite obvious just by scrolling through my page that I love waffles. Every #WaffleWednesday I get creative in the kitchen and whip up a new waffle recipe to share every week with my amazing community and friends that follow me! It’s been a fun journey and I can’t wait to see what else I can contribute to #fitstrongwaffles in the future! For right now, I’m sharing with you a single serve waffle recipe that’s extremely basic and super easy. Actually, you probably already have all the ingredients for it!
Are Waffles Healthy Breakfast?
In this case, absolutely yes! I used to think that waffles and pancakes and any sort of indulgent food at breakfast time was “bad”. I was stuck in the mentality that there were only “good” and “bad” foods. But, once I broke that cycle I feel in love with my food again. I embraced the fact that I can eat these foods and still live the healthy, balanced lifestyle. That’s when I knew I had to conquer the single serve waffle recipe. Waffles were my favorite before diet culture was brought into my life, which is why I was so determined to make a comeback with them! That’s how my single serve paleo almond flour waffles were born 🙂
Be a Healthy Breakfast Champion
I came to SimpleHealthyEats to share with you this recipe because it is possible to enjoy your favorite foods. You know, the ones that have been deemed “indulgent” or “bad” by society? All you need to do is recreate them in a healthy, more nutritious way.
It’s all about balance and I make sure to fit my favorite foods into my lifestyle.
These kinds of foods bring me joy and make me look forward to breakfast. It automatically puts a smile on my face when I nail a new recipe. So, if you want to experience the joy of waffles for breakfast (or any meal really) without the guilt, you can. It’s all about learning to rethink what a “bad” food is. When you use the right ingredients, waffles are food. That’s it.
Add Your Favorite Flavors
- For Banana Cinnamon Vanilla Waffles, just add as much cinnamon as you want and 1 tsp. vanilla extract with a splash of maple syrup! You’d use the mashed banana instead of sweet potato for this one!
- For Chocolate Cacao Waffles, just add 1tbsp. cocoa powder and ½ tsp. vanilla extract! This works for either the banana or the sweet potato!
- This recipe even works as pancakes if you add just a little more liquid!
No-Fail Paleo Almond Flour Waffles (Single Serve & Super Easy)Print This
- 3 tbsp. almond flour + 1 tbsp. coconut flour (or 3 tbsp. whole wheat flour)
- 1/2 mashed banana or baked then cooled sweet potato
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp. non-dairy milk (or regular, I just prefer non-dairy)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- Mix everything together and that’s it! That’s all you need to get four, full-sized square waffles (or several mini ones if you don’t fill the whole iron, which is what I prefer).
- Just be sure to grease your waffle iron and cook according to your iron’s instruction until your waffle is perfectly cooked just how you like.
- You also always have the option to mix in whatever you enjoy – I do walnuts and cacao nibs/chocolate chips usually, but berries, chia seeds and granola are all great options too!
- Then add your preferred toppings (always peanut butter for me) and voila, you’re ready to enjoy!
