Grain Free Waffles

Grain Free Waffles topped with strawberries and cream.

These grain free waffles have become one of my most popular recipes. They were so popular I had to include them in my first cookbook Against all Grain so you could have the recipe at your fingertips at all times!

Finding an easy grain free waffle recipe is tough. Most of them require abstract ingredients and a lot of mixing, and many of them do not deliver on taste and texture.

This is my type of breakfast. Throw all of the ingredients into a blender, blend for 30 seconds, then let the waffle maker do the cooking. It's satisfying, filling, delicious, and comes together in no time!

PREP TIME: 12 mins

COOK TIME: 10 mins TOTAL TIME: 22 mins


  • 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


  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the salt, baking soda, and coconut flour, then blend again for about a minute until the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Repeat until the batter has been used up.
