The BEST Paleo/ AIP compliant Waffles

I'm always craving waffles. If there's ever a choice for pancakes or waffles, I'm unashamedly going waffles hands down. Every. Single. Time. I'll eat waffles for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on any given day. I guess because they're just so versatile. You can make them sweet, or savory. You can have a waffle sandwich, a waffle feast with all the toppings, or just eat them plain.

Anyways, in an effort to not make this longer than it needs to be and save you from hearing about my undying love for waffles, let's get right into it.

This waffle recipe is great because it's easy, tasty, and you would never know it's Paleo and AIP compliant, which makes it the PERFECT recipe for all my chronic illness guys and girlies out there who are trying to clean up their diet.

So without further ado...

My fav recipe from (this is not my recipe y'all, I'm not quite there yet lol)

My own notes in orange


Paleo & AIP Cassava Flour Waffles

recipe by:

Prep Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 5 mins Total Time: 15 mins


  • 2 cups cassava flour

  • 2 cups milk of choice (coconut or tiger nut milk for AIP) (coconut milk is my go-to)

  • 6 Tablespoons ghee or coconut oil (or butter if tolerated), melted and cooled slightly

  • ¼ cup collagen peptides (I tried this recipe with protein powder since I didn't have collagen and it worked great! You may need to add more milk since protein powder is thicker)

  • 2 Tablespoons maple sugar or coconut sugar (Maple syrup seems to work for me, but I always experiment with it)

  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda , sifted

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • Plug in waffle iron, to pre-heat.

  • Add all dry ingredients to large mixing bowl. Stir to mix.

  • Add wet ingredients. Mix well. (The batter will be thick, which is important for this egg-free recipe to succeed, so don't thin it with extra milk.)

  • Optional, depending on if your waffle iron is truly non-stick: Spray waffle iron with coconut oil spray or something similar. Add the correct amount of waffle batter for your iron, usually about ⅔ full because it will expand. (I use 5 ounces of batter on my waffle iron.) Cook about 4 minutes, until golden brown on top.

  • Serve with maple syrup or preferred waffle toppings!

  • ENJOY!


Just some simple coach tips about this recipe:

Every time you are eating something that is high in carbs, it's best to aim for eating it with a strong protein source. Because carbs ultimately turn into sugar in the body, eating protein with it will prevent your blood sugar from spiking too high.

This is important especially in the mornings when your body is balancing out it's hormones for the day.

It's fun to come up with ways you can add high protein sources to these waffles!

Here are some of my favs:

  • nut butter and berries

  • maple syrup with breakfast sausage or bacon

  • egg sandwich

  • nut butter and Jelly sandwich (my go-to)

  • meat and cheese waffle sandwich

Obviously this is just a recommendation. Eat them however you choose and enjoy, guilt free, knowing you're doing something nourishing for your body. <3
