I love this eggless waffle recipe.  The waffles are grain, gluten and dairy-free.

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (homemade recipe on the site)
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree*
  • Pinch fine sea salt


  1. Preheat waffle maker
  2. To make flax egg: in a small bowl, add one tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons water. Stir to combine and let sit about 10 minutes until the mixture becomes egg like. It's magic!
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add the first 3 ingredients (almond flour, tapioca starch and baking powder and whisk out all lumps.
  4. In another mixing bowl, add almond milk, lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree and sea salt. Mix well to combine.
  5. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix well.
  6. Scoop batter into waffle iron according to manufacturer directions. What works for me: I use a large ice cream scoop because it is the exact measurement needed per quadrant.
  7. This recipe makes about 11 quadrants or 2 - 2 waffles.
  8. Since I have a waffle iron that flips over (love it!) - I cook for 2 minutes on one side and 3 on the other and it worked perfectly.
  9. Note: this recipe can also be made using an egg for the flax egg. The texture is slightly different (both are great). When I use an egg, I adjust the cooking time to 2 minutes on one side and 1 minute on the other (flip over).

Recipe Notes

*Substitutes for the pumpkin puree - applesauce and banana work well.  They both give a subtle flavor of either banana or apple to the waffle.  

*Optional - leave the maple syrup out for a savory waffle.  I occasionally do this when I make an egg sandwich with the waffles (e.g. waffle egg sammy -so good!).

*These waffles are great toasted with a spread of almond butter and your all fruit jam!
