coconut flour waffles, grain-free wafflesWaffles have always been a breakfast favorite of mine. Give me a light, fluffy waffle over eggs any day. These coconut flour waffles are satisfying and packed full of healthy ingredients. They are also grain-free, sugar free, dairy-free and paleo friendly.

I don’t always love the finished texture of coconut flour in baked goods, and I tried out LOTS of grain-free waffle recipes before deciding to adapt my own. The addition of arrowroot powder in this recipe gives these a light texture that I really love.

Oh, and did I mention that these coconut flour waffles are completely sugar free?!? I try to avoid adding extra sugar to recipes whenever possible, and I’ve found coconut flour to have a slightly sweet taste on its own. The additions of cinnamon and vanilla help these taste just slightly sweet without ANY sugar. A sugar free, grain-free waffle recipe that actually tastes good, woo-hoo!

My absolute favorite ways to serve these for a weekend treat is with a super quick and absolutely delicious, sugar free cherry sauce. It uses frozen cherries and has NO SUGAR. My kids devour it and ask for it whenever I make these coconut flour waffles.

If you are feeling crazy and ok with a little sugar for breakfast, try adding chocolate chips to the top of your waffles and then topping with the cherry sauce. OMG, it tastes like dessert!

I’ve been adding arrowroot powder to lots of paleo and grain-free recipes lately, and I have to say I am really loving the results. I especially love it with almond flour; it helps to give the overall finished product a much lighter and cohesive texture. Arrowroot has lots of uses, and is typically used as a thickening agent. If you haven’t tried arrowroot powder in any of your recipes yet, you need to!

Where to Buy Arrowroot Powder

You should be able to find arrowroot powder at your local natural grocery store. I typically shop at Sprouts and they carry it in their baking isle, as well as a small spice size jar with the spices. For this recipe you need a whole cup, so you’ll want to get the larger size from the baking isle. It can also be purchased online – I like this brand.

Where to Buy Coconut Flour

Any natural grocery store will sell coconut flour, and probably lots of regular stores as well. My Costco sells it in a huge Costco sized bag, so that is where I typically purchase it. I like this brand.

Ok, back to these delicious grain-free waffles!

These come together really quickly in the food processor or blender. No need for multiple bowls here! And this makes a BIG batch! I cook for a family of 5, and like to have these leftover, so I always make a bunch.

These coconut flour waffles freeze beautifully, so if this is more than you can handle for one meal, toss them in a freezer bag and they’ll keep for a couple of months. Just pop one of these grain-free waffles in the toaster to re-heat and breakfast is served.
