Easy Paleo Waffles – Freezable too

Before we get to this recipe, I just wanted you to know I am having a Memorial Day Weekend sale on my cookbook, Caveman Feast until Monday the 27th only.  It is 60% off and you get lifetime updates to it once you purchase.  It is pretty much a cookbook that keeps on growing for the same price.  Crazy right? Well we all know I am a little bit so it makes sense.  Head over and grab it HERE.


Ok enough with all these amazing deals, now how about an amazing recipe?  Yes that is right, these are PALEO Belgium waffles that are so simple to make, easy to freeze and warm up in a toaster, and taste better than the real thing.


I was going to post this recipe sooner but I wanted to get some serious testing done on it.  I had 5 different people taste them as well as 4 kids and they all loved them.  That was enough convincing for me to share with everyone.  Plus I have been warming one up in the toaster every Saturday morning for breakfast and am shocked every time at the ecstasy contained in every single bite.  You will absolutely love this recipe and you can prep a bunch in advance to be able to grab and go from the freezer.  All about time saving now.  Please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts and share this recipe with friends.

  1. After I posted this recipe, it was brought to my attention that the person who shared this recipe with me took it from my very dear friends The Paleo Parents without giving them credit. I don't work like that, so you can find the full recipe and all the instructions where they belong, on their site HERE.
Whipped Topping
  1. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer whisk coconut milk (only the thick white stuff, not the water) on high for 3 minutes
  2. Add honey and whisk for an additional 3 minutes.
  3. Serve over waffles and enjoy
I have not tried substituting the banana or the nut butter. It is probably possible I just did not test it.

  1. Hi. I´m making the waffles, and the grams for a cup of almond butter is way off. :) It´s probably less than half the stated amount in grams.

  2. I tried this recipe the first week I went Paleo. I didn’t modify the recipe and they were perfect! My daughter didn’t care for them (4.5), but I loved them and they really helped me replace the carbs I felt like I was lacking. Making a 2nd batch now! Thank you!!

  3. All 3 my girls went crazy for these waffles!! Thank you.

    Unfortunately now one of them has an allergic reaction to eggs. Any idea of what to substitute with?
    Thank you for all the great recipes.

    1. I have used flaxseed meal as a sub for eggs, but I do not use any water, as it can make the final product gummy or sticky sometimes. I use 2T flaxseed meal for each egg. Mix it in to the wet ingredients and let it sit for a few minutes to give it time to absorb the moisture before you mix in the dry ingredients.

  4. Thanks so much for this recipe and pointing to PaleoParents site, they have Nom Nom Paleo video on making these, it made it easier for me. I made them and kids gobbled them with delight. Even the one that claims she doesn’t like banana. They were filling too. No cream needed. YUM YUM!!!

  5. This is a great recipe. Having spoken to many people that are just starting out with paleo dieting, i’ve found that one of the things that really gets to them is that they can’t have their bread/muffins/pastries etc. This recipe is a great example of how they can literally have their cake and eat it. AWESOME.

  6. Made these and they are fantabulous. My brother and I are participating in the Lurong Paleo Challenge with our cross fit gym and these waffles has made the transition more palatable. Made a batch for my brother and he loves them so much he wants me to make him another batch.

    Thanks for all you do!

  7. Well these are pretty much AMAZEBALLS!!!!! I love having a paleo breakfast to go to in the freezer. I’ll be making a 2nd batch this week to take to my pregnant friend on bedrest who is paleo and has celiac’s. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Hi! I love your website and all the recipes! I am new to Paleo and have a lot to learn. You are helping me greatly :O) In this recipe, could I substitute almond flour for the arrowroot powder? Thank you!

      1. I found some arrowroot powder at Fred Meyer and made these today! They were a big hit :O) even my picky 6 year old LOVED them. Perfect for school morning breakfast, too!

  9. Just taking this spot to say that we LOVE your cookbook.
    You’ve truly made yummy paleo available to anyone …. my 14-year-old daughter cooks from your book all the time.
    Love the crockpot chicken with tomato sauce.
    We tried the scallops recipe with scallop-sized chunks of cod and it was delish!

    Love. Love. Love.

  10. Officially hooked! My husband and tried these for the first time this morning and after the first waffle popped out, we stood around the waffle maker oooohing and aaaahing and drooling. PHENOMENAL! To quote the husband, ” They are like the best banana bread turned into waffles!” lol

  11. These were delicious! I’m very new to paleo but they were super easy to make and I just put them in the fridge for the next morning. I’m guessing it was a chemical reaction with the baking soda and something else, but the inside had turned green by morning. Didn’t change the taste at all though!

  12. I just made these waffles last night and they were yum! At 1st I was worried they would be dry but they’re not dry at all, I actually ate them plain and they had a great flavor. I didn’t try the topping because I didn’t have the coconut milk but I def want to try that next time.

  13. Thank you!!!! I just made these waffles and they are amazing! My friend and I couldn’t stop groaning. I’m sure the neighbors are going to complain. Thanks George and The Paleo Parents!

  14. Hi. We have nut allergies in our family : ( does anyone think sunflower butter would work? Sounds so good, but def cant do the nuts. Thanks!

  15. How much of a banana taste do these have in the recipe as written? My boyf can barely be in the same room as bananas because of how much he hates them. Thanks!

  16. I wonder if I could make these in the Vitamix and use almonds instead of almond butter. Any thoughts on how that might turn out?

  17. I’m usually pretty stingy with my ratings but how can I not give this bad boy 5 stars, they are delicious :) Thanks for making an old amateur cook like me enjoy the process again.

  18. I LOVED THESE!!! And my kids gobbled them up too! Without any complaints or questions as to whether these were “Paleo.” Thank you! This will become another breakfast staple!

  19. Just made it for breakfast and it’s the best Paleo waffle recipe hands down. I didn’t have apple so doubled the banana, subbed 1 1/4 cups ground almond flour for the almond butter, and added 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and they came out fantastic. Thank you, George!

  20. I have the most awesome waffle iron, sadly neglected since going Paleo/LC. I made these tonight and they’re pretty wonderful! I didn’t have an apple so just doubled the banana and they’re great. I have one in the fridge with my egg for breakfast in the AM…making a faux McGriddle with egg & bacon! Will be awesome, thanks George!

  21. George – these look awesome – I’m intolerant to apples – (all FODMAPS stuff) what could I substitute for the apples that would still have these tasting fantastic?

    From way down under in New Zealand.


      1. Try pumpkin? (or squash or sweet potatoes) I’m not making any promises, but I’ve tried it in other recipes with success…

          1. Cool! thanks guys – I’ll try it with butternut, pumpkin and kumara (nz sweet potato). No waffle iron tho, lol.

  22. These look great! I have been thinking about refrigerating the coconut milk. Every time I do, I make a mess trying to get the cream off the top of the coconut milk leftovers…My brain storm is to lay the can of coconut milk on its side, then when firm, pour off the liquid into a container to save for later. THEN, you can scoop out the coconut cream, and voila! No mess! Thanks, George, for all you are doing for the paleo community!

  23. Yummy! This IS a super easy recipe for frozen waffles! I’ve enjoyed making it for my kiddos since I read it in the Paleo Parents ELAD book. Same exact recipe and same great results! Thanks for sharing it again with us!

  24. Going to try these as a substitute for the vans gluten free waffles I let the kids eat on school mornings. Much more protein which is a bonus. I buy the maranantha almond butter at Costco on the big jar and it makes these nut butter recipes doable coat wise. I believe it is 6.79 and would probably yield enough to make this 3 times.

  25. I just made these….awesome! I used a Vitamix and just put everything in (pureed apple/banana first, then mixed in almond butter, then added all the rest) to save on the clean-up…worked perfectly.

  26. I wanted waffles this morning and I haven’t eaten any in over 2 years since going Paleo/Primal. Oddly enough I saw this recipe on your facebook page today and so i tried it. These are SO GOOD! I couldn’t believe it! The only thing I did different was I used coconut flour instead of arrowroot flour because i didn’t want to drive all the way out to Whole Foods for a TBS of flour. I’ve tried numerous paleo pancake recipes that were just disastrous but this is so legit! Thank you so much! I’m so stoked on this recipe!! I wonder what other fruit could be added to this?

  27. How many waffles does this make? I often cook for one so I like to know up front what the yield for a recipe is. It also helps to estimate calorie and fat amounts. Some paleo nut and nut butter based recipes are incredibly calorie dense.


      1. I was able to get 5 out of mine, but I have a round waffle maker. I also used a cup of organic applesauce for the apple. I loved them!! Even my daughter who so anti-paleo enjoyed one!

  28. Made these this morning for 7 little boys and they loved them. I used sun nut butter instead of almond butter and they were delicious.

  29. I’m very intrigued by these, as well as your flourless pancake recipe. I have to admit, I’m a little scared to try these – sounds kinda like sweetened scrambled eggs (eew). I just need a little encouragement to give them a try! :)

    1. Cindy-Hubby says they taste like really good Eggo waffles, I think they are like an apple-flavored flour waffles with more crunch to them (I’ve never had an Eggo waffle so no idea if they taste the same or not). No eggy taste at all (I’m pregnant and can’t stand the taste or smell of eggs at the moment). They are really, really, REALLY good!!! And they freeze perfectly so you can make a ton at one time (I usually make a triple batch) and just store in the freezer to eat as needed.

    2. Cindy…. DO IT…. They are awesome! Not eggy at all… Fluffy, crispy, delightful, wholesome deliciousness. Freaking fantastic!

  30. George! Amazing! I don’t have the Belgian waffle maker – but rather a standard round waffle iron. Can I use that? May need an adjustment – will see what I find but thought I’d check with you.

    For anyone using sun butter,will need to adjust the baking soda to prevent them from turning green.

    1. I use a standard round waffle maker and just get more waffles than if I had the bigger/deeper Belgian style. My cooking time is longer for some reason, but I have a cheap-o of a waffle maker. The biggest thing is to watch how much batter you put in-its very easy to put too much and make a huge mess.

  31. Can’t wait to try these! Haven’t had a successful waffle yet! Only problem is, I don’t have the kind of blender it takes to blend an apple yet. How about applesauce? Same concept?

    1. Can you post how it goes with applesauce and how much you use? I don’t have a great blender either. Thanks.

    1. I often substitute a tablespoon of pearl tapioca, soaked in hot water for about 30 minutes. It behaves pretty much the same as arrowroot.

  32. I was just wanting banana waffles seconds before checking my email…this sounds nice but, for some reason I started thinking of pumpkin waffles, looked above the comment section and noticed that I may also like two other pumpkin recipe’s…think I am ahead of myself today.

      1. Do you think subbing pumpkin into this recipe would work? I’m allergic to bananas, so I’d be grateful for suggestions on what else I can use.

  33. WHOOOOO!!! George scores AGAIN!!! YAY!!!! Waffles… nom, nom, nom…

    You, sir… are a ROCK STAR!!!!

    Gotta run… gotta go make some waffles!!!

      1. I’m cryin’… ’cause I KNOW this is gonna taste fabulous….

        It’s been a bad week for kitchen appliances… blender crapped out, Magic Bullet crapped out, and now the (extremely old) waffle iron has bit the dust. I see an expensive ding in my paycheck coming up this week… ~~sigh~~ Oh well..

  34. I love waffles! These look fantastic, I can’t wait to try them out. I love how you add apple to your recipes (like this one), but you use a lot of nut butter – 1 cup is like a whole jar!

      1. I’ll have to give it a try and let you know how it comes out. These would be great during the week as a quick breakfast as I try to get my kids out the door for school.
