My first memories of waffles are the ones from the local breakfast spot on Sundays after church. They were gigantic, crispy on the outside and topped with real whipped cream. A true breakfast indulgence that’s especially wonderful when you’re a kid.

Now that I’m older, my eating habits have changed somewhat. I mostly seek recipes that that fill me up with fiber, protein and healthy fats. Typically I go for a hearty breakfast of eggs, turkey bacon, a banana and any kind of nut butter I can find in my cupboard. However, there are days when I get cravings for a waffle the size of my face and just have to give in.

I’ve been on a quest to create perfect paleo waffle recipe for quite some time, but just couldn’t seem to get the ingredient ratios right until now. And my goodness, are these guys just incredible! The base of this recipe is made up of almond butter. I haven’t tested it with any other nut butter, but I’m assuming it would work quite nicely with cashew or peanut!

Watch this video to see how to make the paleo waffles:

The blueberry almond butter combination is just as lovely as it sounds. A hint of cinnamon and vanilla makes them even more delicious then you can imagine.

Now because of the precise measurements and ingredients, I wouldn’t alter the recipe in any way. I know many of you like to try modifications, but I can’t promise results if you do change things up.

These waffles are crispy and golden on the outside and quite lovely for soaking up maple syrup. A drizzle of honey on these would be lovely too!
