Almond Flour Waffles that are with honey. My favorite paleo fluffy grain-free & dairy-free paleo Sunday brunch with honey.
Struggled to find the healthy waffles I love …
There aren’t many “healthy” waffles that I like. Maybe I haven’t tried all of them but in my eyes, almond waffles are the winner. The most exciting part is that it’s hard to make a difference between these almond waffles and classic plain flour waffles.
They are fluffy and thanks to tapioca it stays together properly. The only difference is the cost of the waffle. However, let’s be honest how often do you really make these? Okay, maybe when you try this recipe you might be addicted.
Key to fluffy paleo almond flour waffles?
The best part is that thanks to egg whites foam will get almost like extra batter. The key to fluffy texture is whipping egg whites separately. When you use this method, then you will get the texture that is fluffy and the smell just tells you to eat it (if you are looking for crispy waffles, then read this post).
I think almond flour is my favorite grain-free flour. Thanks to the healthy fats it just makes sure that the baked goods aren’t dry. Instead, almost all the baked goods made out of almond flour are moist and perfect.

I’m always so lazy to mix the egg whites separate, ususally i don’t think it will make much of a difference haha. Thanks for sharing! I will give it a try and follow it like you made it!
I know the feeling! However, you really have to because it makes difference. At least, that’s what my grandmother used to say. I must believe her. 🙂

I seriously need a waffle maker! This looks awesome!
Oo, yes you do. I actually bought one lately and I’m so happy that I decided that. Probably, I will soon regret when I gain some weight. 😀
