Paleo Banana Waffles

In last week’s post I shared with you my gluten free waffles, which we adapt as dairy free for me. My preference is a coconut/almond milk blend, but you can use whatever non-dairy milk you use. So, having said that, my gut also has issues with some gluten free grains.

Often I can’t tolerate any, but sometimes I can tolerate a very small amount. This isn’t very good when your making large delicious waffles! So, I also ventured into coming up with my own Paleo version of waffles.

Again, this waffle recipe was perfected just in time to enjoy them on Christmas Day however I had threw in a few frozen blueberries into the batter and topped them with stewed cherries, maple syrup and more blueberries. They were SO delicious.

The number of waffles this recipe will make will depend on the size of your waffle maker. With the Cuisinart I cook them on setting number 4, and using a half cup for each waffle it makes 6 large waffles.

  • 2 bananas (I like ripe ones)
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g almond butter
  • 100ml non-dairy milk*
  • ¾ cup Otto’s Cassava or Teff** flour (alternatively you could use Tapioca or Coconut flour or a blend of grain free flours)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda



* I like using a coconut/almond milk blend or almond milk.
** I like using the Teff Tribe‘s Ivory Teff Flour

Serve hot with maple syrup, raw honey or whatever you love having on waffles. My favourite is maple syrup and fruit so either caramelised banana (simply a chopped banana fried in fry pan with some maple syrup or coconut sugar with a drop of coconut oil) or defrosted frozen berries or stewed cherries or a combination of all.

I have been making a batch then freezing them so I can have some waffles during the week when I don’t have time to cook them. I then either defrost them and eat as is, or, toast them in the toaster.

If you want to freeze them then wrap each waffle in greaseproof paper and freeze for a few hours then remove and store in a ziplock bag, freezer bag or container.

I do have a few other different waffle recipes to share, but I won’t go all waffle on you, so they will be posted later this year (or do I dare say it next year?).

Stay tuned for my next recipe sharing post.
