Cuisine: American
Keyword: Dairy free, Gluten free, Grain free, Paleo, Waffles
Servings: 12 waffles


  • Waffle Iron
  • High Speed Blender


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk -- I like Califia brand
  • 1 tbsp honey -- optional, but waffles get a nice golden color in the waffle iron when you use honey
  • 6 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 6 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • pinch sea salt


  • Preheat your waffle iron on a LOW setting.
  • Put all the ingredients in a high-speed blender in the order listed above (wet ingredients on the bottom) as it helps the ingredients blend together well.
  • Blend until the batter is completely smooth. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides to ensure the coconut and arrowroot flours get mixed in well.
  • Let your batter sit for a few minutes while you lightly oil both sides of your waffle iron. (I like to use a bit of avocado oil to ensure the waffles don't stick.)
  • Pour the batter from your blender jar into your waffle iron-- Fill your waffle iron approx halfway, and be careful not to overfill as the waffles expand while cooking.
  • Cook your waffles approx 2 minutes (or less) until steam stops rising from your waffle iron. (Cooking time will vary depending on your waffle iron. Waffles take about 2 mintutes in my All-Clad belgian waffle iron on low heat setting 1-2.)
  • Enjoy! Serve with you favorite toppings. Our family enjoys having our waffles with maple syrup, coconut milk kefir, and berries.


Serving Suggestion: Heat frozen berries to serve warm over your waffles. We often heat frozen wild blueberries (from Costco) in the oven to serve warm over the waffles. We also love fresh berries such as strawberries, raspberries or blackberries.  Another family favorite that you may enjoy too-- serve with coconut yogurt or coconut kefir on top.  
Makes approximately 12 waffles (in my large belgian waffle iron) which is great because then we have leftovers for breakfast during the week. You can store in your fridge for upto 4 days, or in your freezer for a few months. Our leftover waffles never last that long! Reheat leftover waffles using your toaster on the lowest setting.
