Grain Free Waffles
Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1/3 cup almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
- 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ teaspoons baking soda
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- Preheat your waffle iron.
- Combine the eggs, cashews, milk, honey, and melted coconut oil in a blender. A high-speed blender isn’t necessary (I use a simple Waring blender), although it will make the process easier. Blend until very smooth and creamy. You may need to stop the blender and push the mixture down the sides a few times to get it all to blend really well.
- Add the salt, baking soda, and coconut flour, then blend again for about a minute until the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet.
- If you’re iron requires oil, spread a little coconut oil on both sides. Pour the batter into the waffle iron so it just covers the bottom portion of the iron, being careful not to overfill it as these do rise quite a bit and will spill over.
- Cook the waffles for about a minute, more or less depending on the heat of your waffle iron. If they release easily with a fork when you open the lid, they are probably done.
- Repeat until the batter has been used up.

I loved your post over on Real Sustenance! Those waffles sound delicious! yum!
The recipe looks great. My one concern is that I don’t normally make any types of milk, such as almond milk or coconut milk, and I would want to try out the recipe with ingredients on hand before learning how to make either of these non-dairy milks. I am debating trying to make the waffles with SCD yogurt, possibly thinned with water so as to be closer to milk in consistency.
This is so interesting! I love cashews and I bet these taste delicious!
These were incredibly delicious and so easy! I through everything into the food processor! This is an amazing weekend treat!
I just made the waffles and they are incredible–they look and taste amazing. I also threw it all in the Food Processor and it took mere minutes to put it all together. I’ve also made the breakfast cookies (also in the FP)
in the last couple of days and they were also amazing. Can’t wait to try the bread. Thanks!

Great to hear!!
I made these on the Fourth of July using a food processor and my ancient belgian waffle iron and they turned out fantastic! Thank you so much–I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!
I’ve had trouble with Paleo waffle recipes in the past, but these are SO GOOD! Not only did they taste *great*, they were quick to mix up and quick to cook. A+
I’ve also had trouble with paleo waffle recipes in the past, mainly because they stick in the waffle iron, but these cooked up perfectly, and tasted great! Definitely a “keeper” recipe.
Yay! I’m glad these worked out for you!
Made these for the second time and they are wonderful! I’d even say better (taste and texture) than their grainy counterpart! My hubby who poo-poos my grain-free foods loved them! Made them as written with my conventional blender, didn’t bother to mix the wet and dry separately, just threw it all in and everything blended perfectly. Then cooked until the waffle iron steaming slowed down. Thank you for this recipe!

So happy you like them! I tasted a friend’s “real” waffle at breakfast recently, and I totally like these better!
FINALLY got a waffle maker and made these yesterday for brunch – girls had a half day. Four thumbs up!! Thanks for another kid-pleasing recipe 🙂 you make me look so good!
These are incredible! My hubs and daughter also loved them. Extra bonus that they were so easy to make. I used my food processor instead of a blender – worked like a charm! Thank you.
I just used up the last of my cashews to make butter. the butter is just the pureed [vitamix] cashews.
Would it be safe to say 1/2cup of the butter for the 1cup Cashews?
Against All Grain
It’s about 3/4 cup of butter from 1 cup of cashews. It will work just fine! Just play with the amount of coconut oil. You may not need as much.
I have made these waffles a couple times now and I love them! Have you tried using this batter or modifying it slightly to make pancakes?
Am I going nuts??? There is no recipe on this page for the waffles and can’t find it anywhere…please help:~/
ok, now I know I’m nuts (and daft!). Found the very obvious link right in front of me;~D
The link to the recipe is not working. Please post the recipe on your site. Thank you so much. I love this recipe!
Yes, Please please re-post – pretty please, with golden tasty cashew butter on top!!!
I made these New Year’s Day for my family and they were a total hit! Loved that the recipe had so few steps, because it meant I could make them quickly before my daughter got too antsy in the morning. Thank you again!
I am grateful that you came up with this recipe. I did,however, find the waffles came out rather dense, even though I followed your recipe exactly, so the second time that I made them what I did was my own little tweek.
I added two more tablespoons of almond milk and then I beat two egg whites until they were stiff and folded the batter into the egg whites. They came out light and fluffy. The third time that I made them, I added fresh blueberries to the batter before I closed the lid on the waffle maker. They came out very blue but very tasty. Needless to say, this will be my go to recipe from here on. Thanks a million!!!
I’m so crushing on you right now!
Just made these waffles for my Family of 4 Men and my 3 Son’s said they like them better than grain based waffles,…Yay! Now my Husband is just too set in his ways to like them “Better”, nonetheless, he liked them “Very much”.
Now, I’m not a fan of waffles or pancakes for breakfast. Love them for dessert but all those carbs give me tummy ache when breaking my fast,….. until NOW!!!! Scrumptiousness with my favorite sugar free maple syrup.
Thank you for sharing the recipe and your Son is absolutely gorgeous “L’il Haoli Boy”
I just made the Pumpkin Spice Donuts-yum! I doubled the recipe, used honey (and green stevia) and no maple syrup (would have but didn’t have any), then added in a bit of extra pumpkin and coconut milk instead. I will be making these again!

Love, Love, Love these waffles! I wish I had a cashew crop so I could make them every morning! My kids, including my ONE year old son loved these last night. Thank you for working so hard to get a great texture on these.
So, waffles are a big deal to my dad. He loves to make them, he loves to eat them and he loves to share them with people he loves. Unfortunately, he loves the stuff that comes from a box. My whole family is pretty resistant to healthy or paleo eating, but I decided to try this recipe out for a healthy Father’s Day breakfast. My dad took a few bites and declared that they were the best waffles he’s ever had. My boyfriend thought he was just being nice. He took a bite and started raving about them. He doesn’t even like waffles at all. He said he would eat waffles more often if they tasted like that! I just wanted to say thank you for helping me show my dad that healthy can be delicious too 🙂
Super recipe! I made a double batch for 5 of us this morning as the first batch was gone in no time (before I’d even had any!!) These tasted super, rose beautifully and were so much like “regular” waffles that our son asked if we could eat wheat again! 🙂
I just bought your cookbook and I’m so impressed! I made the blueberry waffles which were INCREDIBLE! My husband has just been going along with Paleo b/c I cook everything, but he couldn’t get over how good these were. Better than the real thing 🙂 My 2 year old loved them too! I also made the chocolate cream pie with the coconut whipped cream. Soooooo good! Thanks for all of the great recipes! Love your cookbook!
I am curious about using whole raw cashews vs cashew butter. Why do you do it that way? It seems like you are making butter when you grind them. Any insight would be helpful. LOVE the book. My own personal copy will arrive on Wed.
Against All Grain
Answered my question about cashew butter! Lol
We make your great recipe with raw sunflower seeds-SO much cheaper, if one is in “frugal” mode 🙂 🙂
Can I use almond flour and raw almond butter instead of coconut flour and raw cashew butter?
Against All Grain
Coconut flour is a must, but you could sub almond butter for the cashew butter
This recipe works great with butter instead of coconut oil for those who can tolerate butter.
Hi Danielle, love your book and your online recipes!! My husband also was diagnosed with UC and we changed his diet to Gluten-Free then Paleo and low and behold… no more UC! We love your story and are grateful to you for sharing it and your wondering recipes! Now my question… made your waffles this morning EXACTLY as printed in your book and they came out spongy and flimsy, not crispy. Sadly, my kids would not eat them. I thought they tasted GREAT though! I can’t figure out what to tweak. I am thinking egg whites only VS the whole eggs?? Maybe raw cane sugar or coconut palm sugar VS honey?? Walnut Oil vs Coconut Oil??? Trial and error is so expensive as you know so any advice from you or your readers would be greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!!
Hi, I have found with the baked goods recipes that the size of the eggs used makes a big difference. Unless Danielle specifies using large eggs in a recipe, use medium eggs. This should help with the spongy-flimsy issue you were having.
LouAnn, I have not had a problem with this recipe. I would suggest that you try to adjust the temperature on your waffle maker.
I did… started at level 1 per your recipe suggestion, then bumped to level 2 and burned a batch. I think my waffle maker is definitely hot because even at level 1 the waffles turned out really dark. I will keep trying… thank you so much for your quick response!
Has anyone tried making these ahead of time, frozen them and then retoasted them for convenient eating? Just curious if they keep in the freezer very well.
Yes, they worked out great when I froze them! I warmed in the oven.
I had someone visit my website due to a pingback. Thanks so much! I will have to check out some of your recipes.
Best waffles ever. My kids and I love them!!
Hi there, it looks like Brittany’s website isn’t working, so I can’t find the recipe. Have you published this anywhere else?
these are so easy and so insanely good! thank you!!!!!
Hi, I have just discovered your site, and am dying to try your grain free waffles, however I can’t get the recipe to come up no matter what I try. Is there somewhere else to get it??
Perhaps you can try to refresh your browser or use a different browser. Or, if you are using a smart phone, possibly try a desktop or laptop. I can pull it up just fine. ~Eileen
Can this recipe be changed to make for one person. Or can they be frozen and do they freeze well. Thanks be nice to see some recipes for one person.
If I have the raw cashews but I don’t have a blender, can I grind the raw cashews first and then mix all ingredients by hand according to the instructions in the recipe? I am assuming the amount of cashew “flour” will increase, so should I reduce it down to 1 cup exactly or use the complete product of the ground cashews? Could I use a food processor instead of a blender? I’d appreciate it if I could get an answer to both questions. Thank you so much!
You could place all the ingredients in the food processor, just make sure it is big enough to fit all the ingredients and mixed well. If it is not you can half the recipe to make sure it all fits.
I would love to try this recipe tomorrow morning, but the store was out of coconut flour. Could I substitute almond flour? Thanks! They look delish.
Oops, I just saw another poster asked about almond flour. Maybe I’ll hold off on this recipe for a few days until I can try another store for the coconut flour. OR…. would shredded unsweetened organic coconut in my blendtec become similar enough to coconut flour?
You can try it! Just make sure it is finely ground
Can this same batter be used to make pancakes? We have LOVED them as waffles!
Yes they should work as pancakes!
We made these for breakfast and they were so good! We love chicken and waffles so I made extra to serve with paleo chicken tenders later this week.
Yum!! Chicken and waffles sounds delicious! So glad you all enjoyed!
Danielle – I just saw this recipe and made these today – these waffles do look and taste amazing. Thank you for a great recipe that I’ll have on repeat!
You’re so welcome!
Is it possible to substitute almond flour for cashew flour?
Yes, that’s a 1:1 sub – enjoy!!
