When I want a treat for breakfast… I’m turning to my waffle iron. Just when I thought I couldn’t fit any more appliances in my kitchen, I said “to heck with that” and ordered it off Amazon. So worth it, guys. I do love a good pancake, but recently I’ve had to give up eggs for the AIP (Autoimmune Paleo Diet) and it is HARD to make a good AIP Pancake, let me tell you. But making AIP waffles is apparently quite easy 🙂 And… they’re amazing so, win-win.

Since I love getting protein at breakfast and usually go lower on carbs (that’s what works best for me) – I like to add in some protein powder at times. If I’m eating this as a dessert, I’ll leave the recipe as is. I like Dr. Axe’s Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder – FYI. And VOILA. This recipe is very versatile, tastes great in sweet or salty dishes AND freezes very well. You can make these in bulk, freeze, and take one out to toast for any weekday morning.

  • 3/4 cup Tigernut flour
  • 1/2 cup Cassava flour
  • 1/4 cup Arrowroot flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup Coconut milk full or low-fat works
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil liquid
  • 3 tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • optional: protein powder
  1. First, heat your waffle iron. Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk in a large bowl.

  2. In a smaller bowl, combine all liquid ingredients and stir well to combine.

  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and whisk together until you have a batter. It will be on the thicker side - if you're adding any protein powder, just pour in a little water (a tsp at a time) to help with any clumping).

  4. My waffle iron calls for 1/3 cup for each waffle, so I use a measuring cup to scoop the batter and pour in the centers - read your manual to confirm the amount and do the same.

  5. Close waffle iron and use according to your manual. I use mine on medium heat and wait for the light to go off before opening or sometimes I peek before then! Find your groove with your machine.

  6. As you're making the waffles, place them each on a grate so they don't get soggy and you can store in the oven on a keep warm setting until you're ready to serve.

  7. Serve or store these in the freezer for later use - simply pop them in the toaster before serving.
