Over the last few years since my Hubby (Charles) and I went plant-based, I have been DESPERATELY searching for a waffle recipe. But not just any waffle recipe- a good one. Like, a really GOOD one.

And guess what?

Well, I was left immensely disappointed each time. Finding a plant-based waffle recipe was easy, sure. Finding a gluten-free waffle recipe was also easy. But finding a plant-based gluten-free waffle?

That proved to be impossible.

I mean, don’t get me wrong. Of course I found SOME recipes- and they were all okay. But everything I tried never really fit what I was looking for…

I like waffles that are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Ones that are easily adaptable to suit my daily wants- like adding berries or dark chocolate chips.

And ones that actually TASTE good! Haha. 

So, needless to say- that’s when I started to experiment to find a combination that really worked and hit all of the points I mentioned above.

And I am SO happy with the final result!

If you are also plant-based and gluten-free, I can promise you that this is the version you have been searching for!

And if you’re not… well hopefully you enjoy it anyways 😉 

Anywhooooo, here you go: 


  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp ground chia seeds + 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup plant milk
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt


STEP 1: Combine the ground chia and water in a bowl, whisk together and set aside to thicken.

STEP 2: Add the almond flour, tapioca starch, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl and mix together.

STEP 3: Add in all remaining ingredients and whisk together. Stir in the chia egg.

STEP 4: Heat a waffle maker and add a touch of coconut oil to prevent sticking.

STEP 5: Use a ladle to scoop out the batter into the waffle maker. Repeat until all batter has been used. Serve with maple syrup and berries. Best if eaten right away 🙂 

Enjoy babes!
