Easy Blender Paleo & Vegan Waffles + Video

paleo and vegan waffles

I go back and forth as to whether I prefer waffles or pancakes better, but at the moment I am LOVING waffles! I’ve been making these Paleo & Vegan Waffles almost every day since we got home from vacation last week and we can’t get enough!

Some people think that making waffles is a weekend activity that takes tons of time and makes a big mess, but I’m here to change that with these easy blender waffles!

This waffle batter can be mixed up in a blender in less than 10 minutes so you can enjoy them anytime, not just on the weekends. Or if you’re in a real hurry you can make them ahead of time and freeze them – easy peasy! Just pop them in the toaster and you’re good to go! And if you don’t have a blender, no need to worry – you can also mix up the batter in a bowl by hand 🙂

Not only are these easy to make, they also have a thick, bread-like center with a super crispy outside that makes perfect pockets for your butter and syrup 🙂 There is no aftertaste, no grittiness, and they don’t fall apart…. they are real, diner-like waffles. Enjoy!

  1. So Sorry!!! Can’t believe I forgot to put eggs in the ingredient list! I think 3 large eggs, but I’ll have to make them again to tell you for sure b/c I can’t find my recipe… let you know today or tomorrow. Again, so sorry.

  2. I made these for dinner tonight and the 3 large eggs worked perfect! Also, I added 1/2 C water and 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the batter to make them fluffier. Again, I’m so sorry I forgot the eggs in the ingredient list… hope you enjoy them!

    I’ve made these waffles twice now and they are DELICIOUS! My family loves them! Thank you for all your amazing recipes.

  5. […] kind-of group, but this weekend when we were snowed in I decided to try my hand a pancakes. I used my waffle recipe as a base and went from there. I wanted them to be big, fluffy, and tender – like the kind […]

    These are the best waffles ever! I had given up on making good egg-free waffles until I tried these. They are delicious and crunchy.

    Thank you for sharing!

  7. I have the same question as the question dated June 2012: am allergic to nuts, so would sorghum flour or GF all purpose be okay to use? Oror maybe a combination of both?

    • Hi Connie! Almond flour is very unique so I’m not sure if sorghum or GF all purpose flour would work or not??? If you can eat eggs, I have a Paleo and nut free pancake recipe HERE. I haven’t tried it as waffles but I’m sure it would be pretty easy to convert – you usually just add a little bit more oil (around a Tbsp or so). I hope this helps!!!

    So, one of my biggest pet peeves since experimenting with paleo is people saying “it tastes just like the ‘real thing'”. After tasting whatever recipe they claim as amazing I always assume that their taste buds abandon them when they switched to paleo.

    We just made these waffles today amd OH.MY.WORD they are amazing. We used eggs instead of the flax. We also used maple syrup instead of the coconut palm sugar. And we ran out of almond flour during this recipe, so we used coconut flour for what we were missing (about 1/4th of the total flour). We also tripled this recipe because we have a large family. It still fit in the blender and we ate all.of.it!

    Thank you so much for creating a recipe that actually does taste as good as the real thing!
