Number of Servings: 3


    3 egg yolks, room temperature
    3 egg whites, room temperature
    1/4 cup coconut milk or milk
    2 tablespoons flax seed meal plus 7/8 cup almond*
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon maple syrup
    2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
    (Non-stick spray, optional)

    *Note: Put flax seed meal in the measuring cup first, then fill with almond flour


This recipe adapted from:


Pre-heat waffle iron. (Also, if you wish, preheat oven to warming temperature - anywhere from 180 to 200 F.)

Put 2 tablespoons flax meal in a 1-cup measuring cup. Fill the cup with almond flour. On top of the almond flour put 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.

Put the egg whites into a medium mixing bowl and set aside.

In another mixing bowl put the egg yolks, coconut milk, vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut oil (all these ingredients should be at least room temperature or slightly warmer). Whisk until well combined.

Now, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Set aside.

Dump the dry ingredients in the measuring cup into the egg yolk mixture and mix well with the whisk.

Now, using a large mixing spoon gently mix or fold in about 1/3 of the beaten egg whites. When that is incorporated into the batter, fold in the next 1/3 of the egg whites, then fold in the final 1/3.

Spray the hot waffle iron with non-stick spray (or grease as desired). Bake according to your waffle iron's directions.

My waffle iron is rather small, so for me this makes 3 waffles where the batter is poured into the center of the waffle iron and the corners are not filled in.

If you have extra waffles, or want to keep them warm, place them in a warm oven directly on the oven rack.

Serving Size: One 4-square waffle (1/3 recipe)
